Monday - Crockpot Carnitas Rice Bowls. We've gotten a carnitas roast from Aldi a few times before and it is SO good and so easy. You just toss it all in the crockpot and cook like a normal roast. I'll make rice and a side of black beans when I get home from school and … Continue reading Meal Plan This Week.
Is it brown butter or is it browned butter? My research has brought back answers for both. Whichever way you want to say it - I do believe it may be God’s greatest gift to man, much as I love my children. And around this time of year I can’t get enough of it. The … Continue reading Applesauce Cake with Brown Butter Frosting.

Tuesday - Chicken Enchiladas. We don’t really follow a recipe for this one. Put the chicken in the crock pot in … Continue reading Meal Plan This Week.

A few months ago, I put a little question box on Instagram and asked for cookbook suggestions from you guys. I'd like to build up my little cookbook collection, but I'd rather not have cookbooks sitting on my shelf that I don't use. I knew you guys would have the best suggestions, and wow. You … Continue reading Your Favorite Cookbooks.
Something about the school year starting just turns me into this kitchen monster. It’s like I have to spend time in the kitchen. I think it’s being out of the house all day, and the fact that our kitchen is one of my favorite places on earth and cooking and baking is one way that … Continue reading Meal Plan This Week.
Way back in April, I started planning out my May bakes. I’ve talked about my monthly planning process before, but if you missed it - I usually plan the entire month of bakes all at once.
