Cilantro-Marinated Flank Steak Taco Recipe

How to make the best cilantro marinade recipe for steak tacos! This healthy, low carb, keto & paleo recipe is also gluten free and makes the best carne asada. Can be used with corn or flour tortillas.

Cilantro is one of those things that people either love or hate. I’ve read before that it’s genetic, and that would explain its polarizing nature. I personally love cilantro, and I am always trying to grow it but find it to be a terrible windowsill and even garden plant. I rarely have any luck with it; I plant it constantly but never get any harvest. Fortunately for me, the grocery store sells bunches of cilantro for cheap, and they taste great. This amazing recipe from The Rootsy Network satisfies my love of cilantro in a big way, and it is … Read more

Essential oils have such great health benefits, and they’re so much more potent than fruit juices or fresh herbs. If you are coming over from Pen of a Ready Writer, welcome! Here’s our first oily recipe experiment, Cilantro Lime Rice. It came out really well. Delicious, even! One tip about cooking with essential oils. Remember that essential oils are distilled at low temperatures, so if you heat them, they’re going to evaporate. It’s best to add the oils after the recipe is cooked, … Read more

Mexican Burgers

Joe doesn’t especially like burgers with stuff added to them. He prefers plain old ground meat. I really like burgers that are different from just plain old ground meat. Joe really likes me. Joe makes a lot of burgers that are more than just plain old ground meat. Through the years, each of these has been my favorite for a little while: chili burgers (spicy!), the best hamburgers (almost like a meatloaf but in burger form, so delicious), and Hawaiian burgers (sweet). I have a new favorite these days, Mexican burgers. We have them whenever someone mentions burgers, and that happens to be at least once … Read more

Beef Enchilada Casserole

The best beef enchiladas casserole - This simple and easy casserole can be made on the stovetop, slow cooker, or Crock Pot. Includes instructions for both.

This recipe is another in our challenge to try a new dish every week. Since getting started, we have tried some awesome new recipes – and some duds. We started with a cookbook from The Pampered Chef called 29 Minutes to Dinner. It’s really fantastic; if you go to a cooking show, you should consider it. In case you’re wondering, I bought it myself and have had no contact with any representatives from The Pampered Chef, except when I myself was a consultant 10 years ago. Anyway, that is the first cookbook I grabbed from my cookbook hoarding collection, so … Read more

This is crunchy on the ends! It’s like eating chips! Grace announced last night at dinner. Joe had surprised us with a new recipe, something we’d never tried before, cheesy baked chicken enchiladas. I was dubious about eating enchiladas at this point of my pregnancy (because I have a lot of heartburn and indigestion) but the enchiladas were delicious. I was excited to eat them again for lunch the next day; I don’t get excited about much these days. Except ice cream. I still get excited about ice cream. And eggnog. Anyway, these enchiladas were tasty, and Joe said they … Read more
