Southwestern Chicken Salad

I like making big batches of food whenever I get the chance. Since I mealprep on Sundays, that's easy to do. Meal prepping is all about cooking in big batches and divvying it up throughout the week. Casseroles, sheetpan meals, and skillet dinners are perfect for it. Then, there's meal prepping salads. You can't really… Continue reading Southwestern Chicken Salad

Cucumber Salad with Feta and Dill

It's officially fall, y'all. I know it may not feel like it where you live, but according to scientists, September 23rd is the first official day of fall.

Peppers, chiles, whatever you call them---they… Continue reading Cheesy Chicken Stuffed Poblanos

It's not so much the days are hard to get through, but any time I feel super stressed out or have had a bad day--Mexican food is there to cure my blues. Usually I would dive head first into a pile of salt tortilla chips and… Continue reading Fish Taco Salad with Shrimp & Avocado Salsa

Green Chili Pork Frito Pie

When my station brings food to a work party, we go all out. Case in point: Our Super Bowl work party. I brought cheeseburger party sliders and mini bagel breakfast sandwiches (we do work the early, early morning shift, you know). Another coworker brought crockpot queso, brown-sugar bacon wrapped lil' smokies, homemade cookies, pigs in… Continue reading Green Chili Pork Frito Pie
