77 Healthy Crock-Pot Recipes Crazy schedules, long work hours, and tempting takeout menus make it tough to even think about cooking most nights during the week. Despite the inconvenience, firing up the stove or oven is almost always cheaper and healthier than ordering in or eating out. How about a compromise? 50 Tacos How to heat taco shells and tortillas: Hard taco shells: Bake 4 minutes at 350 degrees F, or microwave 45 seconds. Soft 6-inch corn or flour tortillas: Heat in a dry skillet or on the grill, 30 seconds per side, or wrap in foil and bake 10 minutes at 400 degrees F. Toffee Brownie Bites with Salted Caramel Buttercream Moving to a new city can always be a bit daunting. New job, new friends, new house, new neighbors…..and let’s be honest….the new neighbors thing can play a huge part in liking said new house. We have been very lucky to have met some fantastic neighbors and they are just the sweetest people. Added bonus – they LOVE food!! I mean, could this be any better. Now, the hubs tells me they have quite the extensive cookbook collection and I’m secretly (or maybe not so secretly now) dying to check it out.

Avocado and Mango Salsa I literally just told you on Saturday that I wanted to try this recipe from SkinnyTaste. Well, guess what? I tried it yesterday and just couldn’t wait to share it with you. Typically, the recipes I post are ones I’ve made from at least a week ago. But, ladies and gentlemen (yes, I do believe there are men out there that read my blog) I interrupt this program to give you one amazingly scrumptious salsa recipe.

Honey Mustard Chicken and Quinoa Salad So, how's everyone's summer going? Is everyone doing it up right? It's nearly the end of July, and I sincerely hope yours has included the following in a solid amount by now: lounge chairs, bodies of water, barbecues, cheeseburgers, sunscreen, watermelon, flip-flops, ice cream cones with rainbow sprinkles, and S'mores. Did I mention S'mores? I'd really like to take this opportunity to deconstruct for you my love affair with this gooey confection and how I would marry one except that 1) I'm already married, and 2) humans in this country are having a tough enough time trying to legally marry one another so a valid human/dessert union isn't happening any time soon.

Baked Wonton Tacos When I was a little kid, around every New Year’s, my mom and grandma would sit down and make Mandu {Korean version of potstickers or wontons} all day to make Teokguk {Korean version of wonton soup} and I’d just sit with them trying to help out. I remember trying to help out making my own Mandu, though not really successfully. Then my mom and grandma made their own mandu skins from scratch… And now… how grateful I am that I can get premade mandu skins so easily… although I think I should try and make my own skins sometime… It’s definitely on my to-do list.

Oven Roasted Potatoes When I heard this month’s Kitchen Bootcamp Challenge was potatoes, I was pumped. Originally, I had great plans for the sweet potatoes still in my basement from last fall, but after researching and chatting with the hubby, I decided to go with Yukon Gold potatoes instead. My husband isn’t a huge fan of sweet potatoes and I wanted to make something he would enjoy too, so that’s how I settled on this oven roasted potato recipe. Yukon Golds are our favorite potato to grow in the garden and they absolutely melt in your mouth when freshly dug from the garden. But oddly enough, I’ve never actually roasted them in the oven.

Bruschetta Burgers As our moving date gets closer, we are getting busier with packing and seeing friends before we leave. This means fast dishes are essential, especially at lunch time. These burgers served up a fantastic quick meal the other day when we had only a moment to spare and grab a bite to eat. To help quicken the pace, I bought the meat already shaped into patties, and it didn’t hurt that they were on sale. After all ingredients were factored in, the burgers totaled less than $1.00 each! And, trust me, you can’t find a Bruschetta Burger on any of those fast food restaurants’ value menus for $1.00!
