Our favorite hamburger meal.

This hamburger meal is super simple and easy to make. I used to have it multiple times a week, but that was back when I was doing Keto hard core. I’m not really following a meal plan, but this meal is still really good!

The original recipe calls for three cups of noodles (of choice), but we omit the noodles and just have this with meat. Just like any recipe, you can increase/decrease any of the ingredients to your liking.

In a large heavy skillet, cook bacon until crisp. Remove to paper towel or plate, chop into small pieces.

Crumble the ground beef into a skillet, and continue cooking until the beef is no longer pink, stir frequently.

Add chili sauce, tomato paste, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Stir to blend.

Crumble the bacon and add it to the skillet. Add a little bit of water if you like it juicier. That’s it for the recipe! Super easy. You can make more and use it for leftovers which we do quite often. It taste really good reheated too!

Hope you love this meal as much as we do!

Chicken bacon ranch wrap.

This meal is one of our favorites to make because it’s so good and easy!

INGREDIENTS:

  • chicken breast
  • tortilla
  • shredded cheese
  • bacon bits
  • ranch dressing

Cook the chicken to your liking. Sometimes I’ll use bagged chicken, and sometimes I’ll cook the raw chicken and season it to my liking.

We’ve always microwaved the tortillas for about 40-45 seconds, it helps keep all the fixings inside stay together.

After the tortilla is microwaved, pile all the ingredients inside the tortilla.

Close the tortilla, and on either end of the tortilla add a little bit of shredded cheese. It helps to seal the wrap while on the skillet.

Place tortilla on the skillet. Cook it for a few minutes on each side to your liking just so the cheese melts enough. And if you’re lucky, it all stays put together! Quite a few times the wrap falls apart on me.

These chicken bacon ranch wraps are so easy to make, and taste so good! I like anything easy to cook, and these are definitely it!

Chocolate croissants.

Chocolate croissants are the easiest recipe you can make for a quick dessert / sweet treat!

All you need is three easy ingredients! You can use any type of these ingredients that you prefer, it’s that simple!

  • crescent rolls
  • chocolate chips
  • butter

All you do is put however many chocolate chips you prefer in the middle of each croissant roll. You could even put Reese peanut butter cups, Hershey kisses, a dollop of peanut butter, I mean you could do anything pretty much.

Once they are all ready to go, put them on a baking sheet and cover them with a little bit of melted butter. And then pop them in the oven!

Super super simple treat to make!

DIY Skinny Chai Latte.

Have you ever tried to make one of your favorite drinks from Starbuck’s or your favorite coffee shop? I feel like they never really taste just the same, like something is always off. After lots of searching on the internet, I finally found a good recipe for a chai latte!

Ingredients:

  • Tazo chai latte mix
  • Milk of choice
  • Ice

The chai latte mix can be found at your local Target, or even Amazon. I picked the skinny version, but they also have the full versions which I haven’t tried before.

Put ice into the glass, and pour half of the chai latte mix into the glass. Pour the rest of the glass with the milk of your choice. And that my friends, is it! How easy is that? And it’s delicious! You can tell it’s the skinny version, which taste lighter but it’s still taste pretty close to the one I get at Starbucks. I order this with skim milk at Starbucks, so I’m used to it tasting pretty light anyways.

I’m soo glad I figured out how to make this, and how unbelievably simple it is! Now I can save some money on Starbucks drinks!

Happy October! Can’t wait to make more of these for the fall months that are finally here.

Fat Tuesday.

Happy Fat Tuesday! There is so much to this holiday that I just love, and with the lovely pandemic going on it’s a little hard to go out and celebrate it right? I had all these plans to decorate at home, have some little DIY’s to do like make masks, coloring sheets, queen for a day, etc. My husband got called in for overtime, it snowed a lot, and the kiddo had a snow day, so that threw all the cooking plans out the window. But we still sort of celebrated!

For dinner, cajun chicken and cornbread is what was on the menu. Hadley is more on the picky side so she had her own little meal. I looked up Fat Tuesday meal ideas, and here’s one I wanted to try. I had some other things in mind to make, but decided to minimize the amount of food for just myself while my husband worked.

The cajun chicken was so good! I’ll link the recipe down below, but I omitted a lot. Basically I just added the seasonings, and left out the peppers, and the cheese only because I didn’t have provolone. And I haven’t had cornbread in such a long time, it was delicious!

Attempting to make a king cake for the first time was a bit tricky. First of all, I do not own a bundt cake pan which was a little hard. So I used a regular nine inch cake pan, and put a tiny glass jar in the center. It actually worked pretty well! The recipe I made was keto friendly so it called for almond flour instead of regular flour which always makes cake like things a little different. For being only 3 carbs a slice, it wasn’t that bad! For the hidden baby, we used a mini lego man!

I secretly love this holiday, and happy to do a little something to celebrate! What are your favorite Fat Tuesday things to do?
