You guys, I went shopping at Kroger and found this Pork Roast No-Prep Carnitas Style Pack! Y’all know that I’m all about quick delicious meals, so I had to try it and share it with you. Don’t get me wrong, I love to cook, even meals that require lots of prep. But I think it’s important to have options that are quick to make. Especially when you have little ones who are hungry from one moment to the next.
I love that the Pork Roast was already prepped, which minimized my time in the kitchen. And the instructions were super easy and beyond straight forward. I literally placed the bag in a baking pan, placed it in the oven, added a timer and walked away – I did checked on it as it cooked but you get the point.

A Fútbol Fiesta with Beer Flights and Bites? Yes, please! In our home soccer is the ONE sport that we watch as a family; whether we are rooting for the same team or different teams. Our love for the sport is not only rooted in our heritage but also in our personal experiences. I played soccer in high school and so did my two sisters; and now my little ones are planning to play soccer, as they get older too.
Because this summer is the Summer of Soccer, we are getting ready to host a series of viewing parties. Especially, as we see Panama take part in what will be their first game ever in the history of the tournament – they had never participated before, so it’s a big deal in my home – therefore a celebration is mandatory!
To celebrate, I thought it would be perfect to host our Fútbol Fiesta with Beer Flights and Bites! After all, beer and fútbol just seem to go hand-in-hand. So to get ready, I visited the Katy Cost Plus World Market – find yours here. They have food and wine from over 50 countries and because I needed to get my hands on beers from around the world, it only made sense to shop there. Cost Plus World Market is this Summer of Soccer shopper’s one-stop shop for entertaining, decorating and food and drink needs at any budget. I was happy to have found exactly what I was looking for, at amazingly affordable prices.
Happy Tuesday! So weeknight meals need to be quick right? But also delicious! I wanted to try something different in last week, so I made these crispy ranch chicken wraps. And let me tell you that not only were they easy to make, but they were also very tasty. This four recipe meal was served in under thirty minutes and fed my little family of four. If you’re ready to make this, take notes…
Making the wraps
You will need about four chicken breasts, panko bread crumbs and oil to make the crispy chicken. Coat the chicken with the bread crumbs according to the instructions on the package of your bread crumbs of choice – and fry until golden. You will also need tortilla wraps, cilantro (optional) and cheese – lots of it. 😉
Once the chicken is done, place as many pieces as you’d like on the tortilla wrap, add cilantro and cheese. Close the wrap and place on a countertop grill for a few minutes, so that the cheese can melt. Remove from the grill and serve warm.
Happy Tuesday y’all. So today I’m bringing you another easy recipe. While shopping over the weekend, I stumble upon these flat breads that come two per package in the bakery section. I thought it would make a quick and delicious dinner, so I brought one home to give it a try.
I wanted to keep the recipe as simple as possible. For that reason, I only added a few ingredients; chicken, bacon, bbq sauce, and mozzarella cheese. I feel that chicken is one of the meats that I use the most in the kitchen, but it’s honestly one of the meats that takes the least time to cook. I’m all about quick meals because no-one wants to spend hours cooking after a long day, am I right? 🙂 Keep scrolling for instructions.
Making the Flatbread
First, I prepared the flatbread according to the instructions, I set it aside. Then I started cooking the chicken and bacon in separate pans. Once each was cooked, I sliced each into small pieces. I added some barbecue sauce to the flatbread – though you can substitute it for whatever type of sauce you’d like. Then I topped the flatbread cheese, chicken and bacon. I set it in the over for 8 minutes. Once the timer went off, I removed it from the oven and let it cool. Finally, sliced it in triangles because that’s what the girls wanted and served warm. That’s it! Easy right?
Not ready to make it yet? Pin it for later or share it on your social media! That way you will be able to come back to it. 😉
It’s Tasty Tuesday but also Taco Tuesday, so sharing a Shrimp Tacos recipe seemed appropriate. It had been a while since I had last attempted to make shrimp tacos. And this is by far my most favorite Shrimp Tacos recipe. The true star of today’s recipe is Kroger’s Peppery Sweet Corn Salsa. When I saw it on the shelf, it sounded too delicious to not take home with me. Though, I had not idea what I would do with it, I added it to my cart. While planning meals, I saw it in my pantry and thought it would add the perfect kick to the shrimp tacos I was planning to make.
I wasn’t wrong! This salsa added so much flavor to the shrimp, my husband who is the one from Mexican descent in our home loved them. And he can be as picky as my littles when it comes to food. But if he liked them, I thought the recipe was worth of sharing. I’ll get to the recipe now, I’m sure you’re sitting on the edge of your seat and ready to learn how to make this.
St. Patrick’s Day is this weekend! That means it is also mid-March.. where is time going? Back to St. Patty’s Day. I thought I’d help you celebrate by sharing this super easy to make Lucky Charms Cookies recipe. All you need is a box of Lucky Charms cereal, a package of sugar cookies, one egg and butter. That’s unless you want to make your own dough, then keep scrolling for my favorite sugar cookies recipe.
Making the Cookies
First, separate the marshmallows from the cereal (I did about 1.5 cups) and set aside. Next, prepare the cookie dough per instructions. The package that I got only called for 1/2 cup of butter and 1 egg. Once the dough is prepared, mix in about 1 cup of the marshmallows. Save the 1/2 cup to top the cookies and garnish. If you’d like to make your own dough from scratch, I recommend this recipe. I have tried it and it makes good sugar cookies.
Once you’ve folded the marshmallows into the dough, use a teaspoon to drop cookie dough onto a baking sheet. Make sure to place them about two inches apart. Bake at 350 (or temperature on your package instructions) for about 8-9 minutes. Remove from oven, they will continue to bake on the baking sheet for a few minutes as they cool down. Remove from baking sheet once cool, top with extra marshmallows and that’s it! 😉
