Chicken and Vegetable Coconut Curry

Quick weeknight meals are a must in our house so I am so excited to partner with Imagine® Organic Culinary Simmer Sauces for this post to show you how a great meal can be made in under 15 minutes. As always, while I may have been compensated for this post, all thoughts and opinions are 100% my own.

Weeknights are crazy in our household. I try to skip take out and limit eating out to once per week so having easy to make dishes that come together quickly are a must. On top of that, they actually need to taste good too so my family will eat them. That can be a tall order unless we want to eat spaghetti every night! This chicken and vegetable coconut curry is perfect for the times when I need something on the table fast that also tastes great.

Chicken and Vegetable Coconut Curry that is ready super fast and is so delicious. I can't wait to try it.

Halloween Snacks: Monster Cookie Dip

SoFab Disclosure

So, Halloween is this week. Eek! Are you like me and still planning out all the details of the day/night? We have our costumes but our annual pre-trick or treat dinner is still really up in the air. We invite a bunch of friends, with their kids, over to enjoy dinner before we go raid the neighborhood collecting candy. I love it but I am seriously stressed this year because my menu hasn’t fully taken shape. Thankfully, I have a few Halloween party food go tos I can rely on like monster cookie dip.

White Cheddar Macaroni and Cheese with Hot Dogs

Hot dogs play a big role at meal time in our household because our kids {especially our son} loves them. So, I am excited to partner with Hillshire Brands™ and the Mom It Forward Blogger Network for this post. As always, while I may have been compensated, all thoughts and opinions are 100% my own.

Kids are funny when it comes to their eating habits. Mine focus on a few specific items and that is all they want to eat for weeks at a time. Then, they don’t like it anymore…at least until they tire of whatever they moved on to. Two thins that never get rejected are hot dogs and macaroni and cheese. To make my life easier, I just typically combine them and make a dish like white cheddar macaroni and cheese with hot dogs. It is always a win!

20 Minute Mummy Pizza

My family loves pizza. So, I am excited to partner with Fleischmann’s Pizza Crust Yeast to bring you this quick, family friendly recipe. As always, while I may have been compensated for this post, all thoughts and opinions are 100% my own.

We used to have bi-weekly pizza nights where we would get together and make homemade pizza with toppings of our choice. Even then, I was always nervous about making the crust so I would buy dough from the store. Of course, that dough requires time to rise and so I always had to make sure I planned ahead. We stay pretty busy right now so that planning ahead part isn’t usually in the cards and we end up with pre-made pizza crust instead. This 20 minutes mummy pizza changed that for good!

Super cute homemade mummy pizza in 20 minutes!

Creamy Baked Avocado Pasta

I am so excited to be partnering with Hass Avocado to share with you my new found love of avocados and all the health benefits they offer. As always, even though this post was compensated, all thoughts and opinions are my own.

As a kid, I ran away from anything that had avocado in it. It was one of those ridiculous situations where I had never really tried an avocado but was convinced I didn’t like it. Thankfully, as an adult, I became a little wiser and fell in love with avocados. I eat them on toast, in salads and, of course, in guacamole. I have also started cooking with avocados more and it all started with this creamy baked avocado pasta.

Orange Cream Monster Bread

I am always so excited when I get to partner with brands my family loves. While this post was sponsored by TruMoo, as always, all thoughts and opinions are my own.

Halloween is just around the corner! I know it is totally crazy to think about it already being mid-October but here we are. We are headed out of town for a few days so I wanted to make sure our Halloween costumes were all set and maybe do a little early Halloween celebrating too with a few baking projects. We did a few but one of my favorites was this orange cream monster bread.

A great Halloween snack that is so easy to make too! This orange cream monster bread is the neatest idea for our Boo bags.

Turkey, Apple and Brie Bites

I am always excited to partner with quality food brands like Hillshire Farm. As always, even though this post was compensated, all thoughts and opinions are my own.

I don’t think I’ve talked much about some of my recent changes in eating. I’ve cut out a lot bread and pasta items that I used to eat all the time. I still enjoy them from time to time but they don’t dominate my meals as much. Instead, I like to combine protein with fruits and vegetables whenever possible. It seems like I am always short on time so being able to have a few items on hand that I can grab on go is key. One of my newest favorite grab and go items are these turkey, apple and brie bites.

Only three ingredients to make a snack that is BIG on flavor. Yum!

Margarita Chicken Rice Bowl

I am so excited to continue my work with Success® Rice by sharing this recipe with you that has become a family favorite of ours. As always, while I was compensated for this post, all opinions and thoughts are my own.

We are big Tex-Mex and Mexican food fans. From burritos to quesadillas, we love the flavors of lime, cilantro combined with a hint of spice. One of my favorite things to get when we go places like Chipotle is a rice bowl. I was at home one evening and really craving one so I decided to make my own version. This margarita chicken rice bowl is so easy to make and ridiculously delicious too. You may never go to Chipotle again because you’ve got something even better that you make at home!

This margarita chicken bowl is so delicious. It is like Chipotle made at home.
