Turkey Enchilada Lasagna – Great Way to Use Leftover Turkey

Turkey enchilada lasagna recipe for Thanksgiving leftovers. Mexican casserole.

I love Mexican food in all varieties. It has been a little challenging to eat Mexican since my bariatric surgery, but I am still able to find good things to eat.

Cilantro Lime Rice with Beans

I have been curious about cooking with essential oils since I first got my Premium Starter Kit. 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

Chicken Bacon Ranch Quesadillas

How to make the best chicken bacon ranch quesadillas - Topped with sour cream, these cheesy chicken sandwiches are full of melted goodness. Perfect simple and easy weeknight dinner!

I loooooove quesadillas, and we have a fancy little quesadilla maker at home. We used to use it about once a week although since I no longer eat tortillas, we’ve slowed down quite a bit. Quesadillas are a great weeknight dinner because they include protein, dairy, and a little bit of carbs, and you can even throw in some veggies. Plus, you can make one in about five minutes with virtually no prep. I suppose if you had a family of 10 people, it would become a pretty lengthy process, but for our family of four, quesadillas are super quick. … Read more
