Spicy Italian Macaroni and Cheese

I am excited to partner with DairyPure milk to bring you this new recipe. While this post was sponsored, all thoughts and opinions are my own.

We love mac & cheese in our house. I don’t get to make it from scratch as often as I like but I try to make a big batch and then freeze it for later use at least once per month. Since we eat it a lot, I like to try and change it up from time to time and go beyond a basic macaroni and cheese. Recently, I wanted to make some that was geared a little more to the adults in our house and created spicy Italian macaroni and cheese.

Salted Pretzel Ice Cream Bites

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Safeway, Inc.. All opinions are 100% mine.

Do you love ice cream? Who doesn’t, right?! I am a huge ice cream fan and haven’t really met many flavors that I don’t like. Anything with peanut butter in it is a winner for sure. I was trying to decide on a fun ice cream treat to make with my daughter and stumbled upon some Edy’s® Peanut Butter Cup Frozen Custard. Now, I could have eaten it alone but we decided it would be fun to use some salted pretzel snack bars to make salted pretzel ice cream bites.

Tropical Guacamole

I have probably mentioned before that my four year old is totally obsessed with guacamole. If you have met us in person, you know it is quite the spectacle. He will eat guacamole {or more recently just plain avocados} every day if given the change. I love guacamole myself but not quite that much! I’ve been trying to change it up for him from time to time and recently made a tropical guacamole that he absolutely loved!

We’re huge Mexican food fans in our house. Seriously, my kid eats guacamole by the truck load and we have at least one Mexican inspired dish on our menu every week. So, of course, we are super excited about Cinco de Mayo. The only bummer is that it is a Tuesday which means I won’t have time to put together a lot of stuff for our celebration. Thankfully, I know where to get delicious taquitos and tamales. Then, all I have to do is make a few delicious sauces and toppings so my family can make their own taquito platter. One of our favorite sauces is jalapeno kale dip which my kids think is just avocado ranch {and I am not tell them any different since the word kale would instantly get a disgusted face and rejection}.

So, we’ve started adding getting ready for Thanksgiving and Christmas to our busy routine. It isn’t like I had a whole lot of spare time anyways so now we have even less time to get everything done. Of course, with the expenses of the holidays, I am working harder than ever to keep our eating out under control. It is times like these that recipes like this one for mushroom and red wine beef become so important!

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.
