Hey everyone! I hope you all had an amazing Thanksgiving. I know some of you may be tired of the sight of food right now from eating so much during Thanksgiving, but if your'e like me (who is a true foodie lol) you will enjoy this blog. Below are some of my top FAVORITE recipes. You may also notice I substitute beef for ground turkey in some of the recipes because I'm striving to eat a little better.
Honey Garlic Chicken
I really love this recipe because its only 5 ingredients! It's super easy and quick to make especially for those busy school nights. My husband andI daughters love this recipe as well. You can either use chicken thighs which is recommended since dark meat has the most flavor or you can use chicken breast. I love to pair this meal with rice(or mac and cheese for the kids) and broccoli. I usually make enough that will last for 2 days. I don't like cooking everyday lol! Check out the recipe and tell me how you like it. Honey Garlic Chicken recipe
BROCCOLI CHEDDAR BAKED POTATOES
I love this recipe because you can add anything to it such as bacon bits and grilled chicken. The only thing I did differently with this recipe was instead of pouring the broccoli cheese sauce over the open baked potato I scooped the potato out the skin and put it in a bowl then poured the cheese sauce over it (less mess). It's a simple meal to make it takes about an hour to cook everything. I got full from just eating 1 1/2 baked potatoes. So a little goes along way, the cheese and potatoes itself feels you up.

Ground Turkey Salisbury Steak
A savory comfort meal. If you've never tried ground turkey you're really missing out. It's a great substitution for ground beef and its healthier. I also substituted the Campbell's Soups for Easy Cooking Savory Portabella Mushroom for the McCormick's Turkey Gravy packets (I was too lazy to make homemade gravy).The sides I usually make with this meal is buttery mashed potatoes and green beans. Everyone in the house loves it and like with most meals I make enough for it to last 2 days. Check out this recipe you will be surprised how flavorful it is Ground Turkey Salisbury Steak .
EASY OVEN BAKED SPICY CHICKEN TACOS
A great weekend or family night meal that everyone will enjoy. Easy to make and you can add any toppings you want. It only takes about 30 minutes to make! My kids like soft tacos better than the hard shell so for them I substitute the hard ones for the soft ones. I still bake them in the oven as directly though. I like to pair the tacos with some type of Spanish rice. Try it out: BAKED SPICY CHICKEN TACOS
Million Dollar Spaghetti
Baked spaghetti is my favorite dish its cheesy, rich and a hearty comfort meal. So this is my go-to spaghetti casserole. This past year I have been using ground turkey in my spaghetti rather than ground beef. I honestly can't tell a big difference in the taste. If you have never tried million dollar spaghetti you are really missing out. Imagine a combination of baked spaghetti and lasagna. The casserole is enough to feed 6-8 people so its perfect for a crowd or leftovers. Try this recipe and tell me how you like it Million Dollar Spaghetti
Chicken Penne with Bacon and Spinach in Creamy Tomato Sauce
Flavorful and fulfilling. All the flavors compliment each other and the creamy tomato sauce is amazing. The dish can feed 4 people but like always I make extra just so the meal can last 2 days. I love meals that require pasta because it feels me up quicker. Also pastas such as penne holds a lot of sauce. The spinach adds extra nutrition so its great for the kids as well. You can substitute different things with this recipe such as taking out the bacon or using canned tomatoes instead of fresh tomatoes ( all depends on what you have in your fridge and pantry).
