Sloppy Joe Biscuit Cups

These little cuties take the sloppy out of Sloppy Joes! 🤣 They were a HUGE hit! You can use homemade biscuit dough or the store-bought stuff. 💕 I’ve switched to using my Air Fryer because the oven makes my apartment unbearably hot. I’ll include cooking temps for both air frying and baking. 😊 Swerved withContinue reading “Sloppy Joe Biscuit Cups”

Quick Marinara Sauce

This sauce is so versatile! It’s amazing in Steak Pizzaoila, Chicken Parmesan, Spaghetti or Baked Ziti! While it may not be a traditional Italian recipe, its still delicious!

All of the pancake-y deliciousness and none of the babysitting!

Cantina Style Salsa

I’m kind of a brat when it comes to salsa. I grew up eating hole-in-the-wall restaurant style cantina salsa and all those premade grocery store shelf jars always tasted too sweet and processed. So now I just make my own. 🤣 It goes great with my Carne Asada Tacos, tortilla chips and Green Chile ChickenContinue reading “Cantina Style Salsa”

Pesto Cauliflower and Carrot Soup

My local grocery store had a sale on Cauliflower and I got 9 lbs for $3. 🤣 I didn’t really know what to do with it all but it’s overcast and dreary out, so perfect soup weather!
