This is my all time favorite dish! Both my husband and I love it! Be sure to get chipped beef in the packet and use unsweetened condensed milk. Serve over toast (my favorite) or the traditional way — over real mashed potatoes.

Grandma’s Homemade Macaroni and Cheese Recipe


I love macaroni and cheese… but I’m a picky eater. If it’s in a box, it has to be Velveeta. (I mean, yum!) Everything is better homemade, though. And this recipe is amazing! So cheesy, so filling, everyone will love this mac and cheese!

Adventures in the Kitchen – Blogmas Days

After posting my 4 favorite Christmas Cookie Recipes, I knew I needed to make some cookies. We’ve had a bag of chocolate chips sitting in the cupboard for about two weeks.. and I had already broken into them. Sometimes you just need a sweet treat 😉

There was a slight issue with making chocolate chip cookies. I didn’t have any eggs. What’s a chocolate loving gal like myself to do? I knew I couldn’t eat those chocolate chips on their own…

So, I decided to conduct a little experiement. You gotta have a little fun in the kitchen.

I made chocolate chip cookies without eggs… and they turned out to be soooo delicious!

The best part?

I could eat the cookie dough without worrying if I would get sick..


..and yes, I ate one or two (or three) little spoonfuls. I mean, you have to test it out, right? haha!

Simply delicious, egg-free chocolate chip cookies
Don’t those look amazing?

Taco Tuesday with a Twist

Hello friends!

I am starting to feel more like myself. For the past two days, I have been enjoying coffee again and today I eased back in to my fitness routine with a gentle yoga flow.



The weather has been teasing us with 70+ degree days and gorgeous sunshine. Summer is just around the corner and I’m pretty excited about it. 🙂


Taco Tuesday.

As much as I love alliteration, it doesn’t matter what day it is

Tacos are always a good idea.

You can quote me on that. 😉

Now that my appetite has started to return, I decided that Tacos sounded amazing for dinner. But, we have tacos quite often so I wanted to switch it up a bit.  Step outside of the box. Try something a little different, a little new.

I actually saw this idea on Pinterest (surprise, surprise) yesterday. The pin took me to the Old El Paso website. The original recipe, Easy Beef Burrito Skillet, was created by Christy Denney – The Girl Who Ate Everything. It looked pretty tasty.

I had most of the ingredients, swapped out a few, and I switched it up a bit to fit my family’s taste. It turned out to be delicious!

Here is what I used:





-Ground Beef (1-3 lbs. I used about 2.5 lbs.)

-Taco Seasoning

-2 medium sized Flour Tortillas

-Shredded Cheese

-Re-fried Beans


-Sour Cream

-Hot Sauce



  1. Cook hamburger in a skillet over medium heat. Once it is brown, drain the grease.
  2.  Add taco seasoning to hamburger according to package instructions.
  3. Heat re-fried beans in a separate pan.

    4. Cut tortillas into strips.


5. Lay them over the hamburger, allowing them to soften. Stir and add as many more tortilla strips as you desire.




6. Sprinkle cheese on top.


7. Cover with lid, remove from heat, allow cheese to melt. Chop onion.

8. Serve and enjoy!

My son enjoyed his plain, with no toppings. I added onion, extra cheese, and hot sauce to mine. My husband had the re-fried beans, extra cheese, and sour cream.
