Baked Chipotle Ranch Chicken Taquitos

What do you call these? In most of the restaurants that we frequent here in southeast Texas, they’re called “flautas” and might be made with either corn or flour tortillas. On the freezer aisle, they’re called “taquitos” and I’ve only seen them made with corn tortillas. The internet seems to loves “taquito.” Whatever you call [...]

Grilled Chicken Fajitas

Updated from the archives Pushing into October, the “why didn’t we move to Colorado when we had the chance” really kicks into overdrive. It doesn’t matter how hot it was in Texas last year, it is always hotter this year. All the pumpkin and apple recipes in the world doesn’t change the fact that I [...]

Turkey Pesto Burger

turkey pesto burgers

During the summer, we eat a lot of the tomato-basil-mozzarella combo. Those flavors can give a fresh makeover to even the most plain dishes. Like turkey burgers. We grow tomatoes (this year, even successfully!) and basil in our veggie garden so we’re usually only on the hook for fresh mozzarella and some good balsamic vinegar. [...]

Shrimp Enchiladas with Grilled Salsa Verde

In our house, enchiladas are a weekend food. There isn’t anything overly complicated about them, but the clock ticks away as I’m making the sauce, making the filling, and then rolling and baking the enchiladas. All while stopping every 2.3 minutes to attend to the 2-year old. Instead of eating dinner flustered at 8pm on [...]

Hawaiian Turkey Burgers

Half of the adults in this house are generally anti-turkey burger. And 100% of the toddlers in this house don’t care what’s inside that hamburger bun, as long as there is a pile of cherry tomatoes next to it. But if I mention turkey outside of sandwiches or Thanksgiving, I get a sigh. (And if [...]

Chicken Cheesesteak Sandwiches with Mustard Blend

Back when we were dating, one of our favorite places to eat was Texadelphia, a local-ish chain of “watch the game” bars famous for their chicken cheesesteak sandwiches. Like clockwork, you could find us there after church softball games (rehydration is important!), after flag football games (rehydration is important!), and any Sunday afternoon if the [...]

Buffalo Chicken Monkey Bread

One of the things I like most about reading food blogs is seeing an old flavor getting new life. Or just a facelift. You’ve probably seen your share of buffalo chicken [fill in the blank] recipes over the last couple of months. Soup, tacos, mac & cheese… pretty much everything but wings. I’ve actually never [...]

Red Beans, Sausage, and Quinoa

Healthier Red Beans, Sausage, and Rice

Laissez les bon temps rouler! Besides Chicken & Sausage Jambalaya (which is one of the most popular recipes among our friends and family), my other favorite New Orleans-inspired dish is Red Beans, Sausage, and Rice. I set out to give the dish a bit of a healthier makeover because, aside from the occasional indulgence, we’re [...]
