Smothered Southwestern Chicken Skillet

I had some leftover corn, homemade black beans and Mexican rice from the other night, so I tossed them all together. 😂 Cooking it all in one skillet means less dishes to clean which is just fine by me. ❤️ It would have been better with cream cheese, but all of mine is frozen. What’sContinue reading “Smothered Southwestern Chicken Skillet”

Jerk Chicken Skewers

I made enough of the spice mixture to fill the mason jar, it was that good! I prepped all the skewers last night, then just threw them on my griddle for lunch.

Sausage Egg and Bacon Breakfast Melts

So much cheesy goodness! Sausage Egg and Bacon Breakfast Melts, one for dinner tonight and the other for breakfast tomorrow. Honestly, I could only finish half of the sandwich.

This is by far my favorite breakfast hash brown recipe! It’s hearty, flavorful with a sweet maple twist. It goes amazingly with darn near any breakfast.

Crispy Grilled Elk Tacos

These delicious little tacos really hit the spot! I normally double up my tortillas, but they held up brilliantly when frying and didn’t need any extra structural support. 😂 The marinade is key to perfectly tender elk meat, as this was an old bull and his meat was a bit on the tough side.

Sweet Heat Cornbread Muffins

I love making this cornbread recipe. The combination of sweet and heat can’t be beat! It’s slightly cake-like on the inside with a wonderfully crunchy crust. If you aren’t a fan of hot foods, substituting the jalapeños for bell peppers is a great option. They go great with the honey! I love serving them warmContinue reading “Sweet Heat Cornbread Muffins”
