This burrito is the epitome of a fresh, summer meal (unlike my last post). The sweetness of the chicken and corn compliments the slightly spicy tomatillo sauce. Though the recipe was somewhat laborious, it was completely worth it. All of the components were delicious on their own, and even better when combined.
Though French onion soup isn’t your typical summer dish, I’ve never made the soup before, so I decided to give it a shot this weekend. I had to tweak the original recipe a bit, but otherwise, it turned out fantastic. The gooey cheese was definitely my favorite part. :)

If you’re a fan of snickerdoodles, I’m gonna go ahead and say that you’d love these cinnamon squares. They’re basically a snickerdoodle cookie in gooey cake form. What could be better than that?! I brought these to a 4th of July BBQ and not a single bar was left on the tray. I’ll most definitely be making these again soon.
Work has been pretty busy the past couple weeks, so I haven’t spent much time in the kitchen. I also haven’t had a chance to go to the grocery store, so I had to make do with what I had on hand! This spaghetti was quick and delicious, and made plenty of leftovers for the week.
Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!
Happy Taco Tuesday! This is a bold statement, but I have to admit that these are some of the best carne asada tacos I’ve ever tasted. The marinade for the meat was divine–I would have been content eating the carne asada alone. I recommend going light on the smoky dried-chili salsa, as it’s pretty dang spicy. But since I have a cold right now, I didn’t mind so much, as it cleared up my sinuses!
Hope everyone had a relaxing Memorial Day! I drove home to spend the day with my parents, as it was also my mom’s birthday. We spent the day relaxing by the pool and cooking some delicious food.
We hadn’t used our smoker in a while, so we decided to smoke a pork loin and make these sandwiches. Though time-consuming (since we made the coleslaw and BBQ sauce from scratch), the sandwiches were spectacular. The smokey meat paired wonderfully with the vinegar based BBQ sauce. My mouth is watering just thinking about them!
I’ve been fighting a cold all week, so I’m just now posting the dinner I made my mom and family for Mother’s Day. My mom requested I make this dish, as she made it for a dinner party and said it was an absolute hit; and boy, was she right. Not a drop of food was left in anyone’s bowl.
The “crazy” water was delicious, but the halibut stole the show. The slightly crunchy parmesan, pesto and panko crust perfectly juxtaposed the flaky fish. I will most definitely make this again soon.
(FYI, I made this meal for five people, so I tripled the recipe below).
