Chicken Enchilada Casserole

Chicken Enchilada Casserole: Easy, cheesy and delicious!

Fast, easy and cheesy chicken enchilada casserole has all your favorite flavors, but no rolling and stuffing–just stack and bake. It doesn’t get much simpler or much more delicious!

Chicken Enchilada Casserole: Easy, cheesy and delicious!

I never realized my Mexican food obsession was even a thing for most of my life. I live in Arizona. Mexican food is basically just food. Not to mention that most Mexican dishes include my favorite food group: CHEESE!

Chicken Enchilada Casserole: Easy, cheesy and delicious!

Did I ever tell you about in my “before” days I would go out to eat and then when I’d get full, I would pick all of the cheese off of my dish and leave the rest? I’m pretty sure it was something like #20 in this article. PS: I laughed out loud for so long. Maybe my favorite BuzzFeed article ever?

Chicken Enchilada Casserole: Easy, cheesy and delicious!

Anyway, I love enchiladas, but every time I make them, the rolling takes me forevvveeerrrrr, and then they never stay, and I just end up eating a mess of enchilada filling rather than actual enchiladas. So this time I took a different approach and stacked it all up. It stayed together perfectly. I don’t know if I will ever make regular enchiladas again.

Chicken Enchilada Casserole: Easy, cheesy and delicious!

This is like you ordered enchiladas, then mixed your whole plate of enchiladas and beans together making it even more awesome, and with practically no work!

Carrot Cake Cupcakes

Carrot Cake Cupcakes: Perfectly soft and tender with fluffy cream cheese frosting

Ultra soft and tender carrot cake cupcakes with light and fluffy cream cheese frosting are the perfect spring dessert. So delicious no one will know they’re lightened up and gluten-free!

Carrot Cake Cupcakes: Perfectly soft and tender with fluffy cream cheese frosting

Can we just live in a world where anything that has a vegetable is automatically healthy? Like, can these be the side veggie side dish for my grilled chicken? Or zucchini bread. Or I’d even settle for throwing some spinach in my milkshake. That constitutes a green smoothie, right??

Carrot Cake Cupcakes: Perfectly soft and tender with fluffy cream cheese frosting

Okay, so maybe these aren’t quite as healthy as snacking on baby carrots, but sometimes you just need your veggies in the form of a giant, ridiculously good cupcake. And today is one of those days. I’ve been working an absolutely insane amount (which is so worth it because it’s leading to GREAT things that I can’t wait to share!) and pretty much living off canned soup and cheese toast. I am the model of healthy living over here. I miss vegetables, and at the same time I have the overwhelming urge to stress eat about a dozen cupcakes, so I’m pretty sure carrot cake is the perfect solution.

Carrot Cake Cupcakes: Perfectly soft and tender with fluffy cream cheese frosting

I’ve always been a huge fan of carrot cake (except when it has nuts–no thank you), and I’ve tried a couple of times to make carrot cake cupcakes, but they always ended up as a bust. Especially the time I tried to stuff them with whipped coconut cream and they ended up a soggy mess. That was fun. Finally, I decided to stick to a more traditional version, and they ended up being everything I wanted and more! So flavorful, so tender, and better than any carrot cake I have ever tasted. I seriously couldn’t get enough of them, and they are hands down one of my all time favorite desserts.

Okay so don’t think I’m weird because I love maple syrup on my bacon and eggs. My favorite thing is a stack of fluffy pancakes with drippy eggs, crispy bacon and real maple syrup. The sweet and salty together…sooo good.

Breakfast Stuffed Sweet Potatoes: Healthy, delicious and naturally paleo

My other favorite thing? Stuffed sweet potatoes. Obviously. And what better to stuff them with when ya want something a little different than some protein-packed eggs? I love eggs. They are pretty much the cheapest and easiest way to instantly bulk up the protein in any dish.

For this dish, I used more of my Eggland’s Best eggs. I’m super into them. Compared to regular eggs, Eggland’s Best eggs have 25% less saturated fat, 1o x more vitamin E, 4 x more vitamin D and 3 x more vitamin B12. Whoa!

Breakfast Stuffed Sweet Potatoes: Healthy, delicious and naturally paleo

I usually eat this as breakfast for dinner, but it totally works as a super filling breakfast–especially  if you roast the sweet potatoes and cook your bacon ahead of time. With just a handful of ingredients, it’s naturally paleo, gluten-free and dairy-free. And the perfect bite of sweet and salty deliciousness.

Whether it's breakfast for dinner or dinner for breakfast, these perfectly roasted breakfast stuffed sweet potatoes filled with drippy eggs, crispy bacon and a drizzle of maple syrup are sure to impress!
Ingredients
  • 2 small sweet potatoes
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • coarse sea salt
  • 3 slices center cut bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 4 eggs, cooked to your liking (I did over medium)

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400. Use a fork to poke several holes into sweet potatoes. Brush each sweet potato with approx ½ tablespoon of olive oil and sprinkle to coat lightly with sea salt. Roast until fork tender (meaning a fork easily slides right into the sweet potato), about 45-60 minutes depending on size of your potatoes.
  2. Once your potatoes have cooked, cook up your eggs. Slice cooked sweet potatoes down the middle leaving about an inch uncut. Stuff each potato with 2 eggs and a generous pinch of crumbled bacon. Drizzle with maple syrup of desired (you only need a small amount) and serve immediately

Cinnamon Streusel Muffins

Ultra soft cinnamon streusel muffins are packed with cinnamon and brown sugar flavor with the perfect, tender crumb and delicious cinnamon oat streusel topping. Vegan & gluten-free.

Cinnamon Streusel Muffins: Ultra soft and tender, but secretly healthy, vegan and gluten-free!

These little gems. Aren’t they adorable? Little 2-3 bite cinnamon goodness that I am totally, ridiculously obsessed with. So obsessed that I moved them to the front of the line, past all of the recipes I made before them because I just couldn’t wait to share them with you.

Cinnamon Streusel Muffins: Ultra soft and tender, but secretly healthy, vegan and gluten-free!

I’ve had my mind on these babies for a long time. Cinnamon sugar muffins with coconut oil. So simple. So necessary.

Cinnamon Streusel Muffins: Ultra soft and tender, but secretly healthy, vegan and gluten-free!

Most cinnamon sugar muffins are coated with butter then dipped in cinnamon sugar after baking, but I went with this streusel because that seemed like more fun. And I’m sure it probably isn’t, but it just seemed healthier than dipping them in butter. Let’s forget about the 3 tablespoons of oil in the streusel topping…

Cinnamon Streusel Muffins: Ultra soft and tender, but secretly healthy, vegan and gluten-free!

In the batter I used half coconut oil and half applesauce to keep them ultra soft, but still cut down a little on calories. I used almond milk and a tiny bit of apple cider vinegar to be my make-shift buttermilk. I looooove buttermilk muffins, but I rarely keep it on hand, so this is the perfect option, plus it keeps it vegan/dairy-free, if that’s important to you. If not, you can totally use buttermilk, or do the same trick with whatever milk you have on hand.

Cinnamon Streusel Muffins: Ultra soft and tender, but secretly healthy, vegan and gluten-free!

These little guys are so ridiculously tender with a perfectly soft crumb, I promise you will never have a clue they are lightened up. In fact, I brought them to a party over the weekend, and as I was leaving, my running coach told me that she was giving everyone else the food they brought to take the leftovers home, but only 4 muffins were left and she was keeping them! I also had someone ask me for the recipe before I even left. They are pretty special. :)

Crockpot Raspberry Chipotle Chicken: Perfectly tender and juicy shredded chicken with a sweet and spicy kick!

One of my favorite meal prep options is crockpot shredded chicken. Almost every week I make some variety of chicken in the crockpot to bring for lunches, and somehow I’m still not sick of it. Probably because I’m always changing it up and trying new things, but I have to tell you this was one of my favorites.

One of my favorite lunch spots is Costa Vita because they have this amaaaaazing raspberry chipotle chicken salad. I love the sweet and spicy combination and raspberry and chipotle just go together like pb&j.

This is a great meal prep option because you can use it so many different ways–you don’t just eat the same thing day after day. I suggest making sandwiches, a taco-type salad, and maybe even stuffing a spaghetti squash! Although, I have to admit, I ate the majority with just a fork. ;)

Okay, so I am a huge egg fan. Pretty much any way you can prepare them, and for any meal of the day, I’m game. They are such a great, inexpensive and healthy way to get protein, so when I got the opportunity to work with Eggland’s Best, I was immediately on board!

I was super excited to find out they sell hardboiled eggs cooked and peeled. It made making this egg salad so easy. I often hard boil several eggs at once to keep them on hand, but when I’m in a time crunch, it’s great to have the option of having all of that done for me. Plus, boiling eggs is one of those simple things that I always manage to mess up.

Egg Salad with Bacon: Lightened up, protein packed egg salad with crispy center cut bacon--easy and delicious!

To add even more protein to this egg salad (and cut some of the fat), I swapped most of the mayo with nonfat plain Greek yogurt. You can always use all Greek yogurt, but I find that the tiny bit of light mayo really does add to the flavor and makes it taste more like traditional egg salad.

Egg Salad with Bacon: Lightened up, protein packed egg salad with crispy center cut bacon--easy and delicious!

A few weeks ago, I happened to have some left over cooked bacon lying around so I threw some on my egg salad sandwich. It.Was.Awesome. Like, I never want to eat my egg salad without it again. It’s one of those amazing secrets I almost wish I didn’t know, but now I know and there is no going back.

I also add a little Spike seasoning. My mom always put it in our egg salad growing up, and it’s an other one of those things that I just can’t do without. I literally use it on everything, but it is mandatory in my egg salad. Of course, you can replace it with whatever spices you like to keep on hand, but I recommend going with the Spike–you will thank me for sure! :)

Boozy Red Velvet Hot Chocolate: Rich and decadent with white & dark chocolate + cream cheese melted in!

You guys, you guys, you guys, youuuu guuuuyyyysss! I am so excited I’m about to burst! Today we’re throwing a virtual baby shower for my BBFF (best blog friend forever…yup, we’re nerdy) Nicole from The Marvelous Misadventures of a Foodie. I cannot believe that within the next month Nicole will have a tiny human, and I will have to stop referring to him/her as White Baby. I’m a little sad about that.

Boozy Red Velvet Hot Chocolate: Rich and decadent with white & dark chocolate + cream cheese melted in!

Surrrrprise Nicole! It’s your party! Whenever I think of Nicole’s blog and her favorite foods, I think about pizza, brownies and drinks. So today all of the recipes will be just that–pizza, brownies and booze! I had grand plans for this super amazing infusion I wanted to create, but I couldn’t find all the ingredients I needed, so I went with plan B, and I can’t say I’m disappointed. ;)

Boozy Red Velvet Hot Chocolate: Rich and decadent with white & dark chocolate + cream cheese melted in!

This hot chocolate is totally over the top rich and creamy thanks to the cream cheese. I used a combination of white and dark chocolate chips to get the traditional vanilla and chocolate flavor of red velvet. If you have any buttermilk on hand, you can also add a tablespoon or two, but I didn’t and I didn’t want to get a whole container just for a few tablespoons, ya know?

Boozy Red Velvet Hot Chocolate: Rich and decadent with white & dark chocolate + cream cheese melted in!

So make sure as you sip on your boozy red velvet hot chocolate, that you head over and give Nicole some love and congratulations for growing a whole human! Also, I put together a little list of my 5 favorite recipes that I’ve tasted from her. It was so freaking hard because I seriously love everything she makes, but I’d start with her Bacon Infused Bourbon, DIY Pumpkin Pie Vodka, Mexican Chocolate Chunk Cookies, Ultimate Candy Bar Brownies, and Red Velvet Ice Cream.

Boozy Red Velvet Hot Chocolate

Cook time: 

Total time: 

Serves: 3

Rich, creamy and boozy red velvet hot chocolate made with cream cheese and almond milk for an ultra creamy texture combined with white and dark chocolate chips and cake flavored vodka.
Ingredients
  • 3 cups unsweetened vanilla almond milk (or milk of choice)
  • 2 ounces reduced fat cream cheese, at room temperature
  • ⅓ cup white chocolate chips
  • ⅓ cup dark chocolate chips
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • ½ teaspoon red food coloring
  • 3-4 shots cake flavored vodka (depending how strong you want it)
  • whipped cream for topping
Instructions
  1. Heat almond milk, cream cheese, and white and dark chocolate chips in a medium sauce pan over medium heat whisking constantly until all ingredients are melted and mostly combined. The cream cheese may separate a little bit--the next step will fix this.
  2. Transfer liquid to a blender and blend until frothy and combined. Pour back into sauce pan and over low heat, whisk in vanilla, food coloring and vodka. Serve immediately topped with whipped cream.
Notes
*If you'd like, add 1-2 tablespoons buttermilk. This will give you even more of the red velvet flavor, but it is not required if you don't have it on hand.
**A cake vodka whipped cream or a cream cheese whipped cream take this to the next level!

Browned Butter Funfetti Cookies

Browned Butter Funfetti Cookies: Crunchy on the outside, soft and chewy on the inside bakery-style cookies with fluffy cream cheese frosting

Rich, nutty, bakery-style browned butter funfetti cookies are everything you could dream of in a cookie–crunchy outside with a soft and chewy inside. 

Browned Butter Funfetti Cookies: Crunchy on the outside, soft and chewy on the inside bakery-style cookies with fluffy cream cheese frosting

Guessssss what??? IT’S MY BIRTHDAY! And a big one. The big 3-0 or, as I like to call it, 20-10. And we’re celebrating with my favorite cookies. Yes. My very favorite cookies I have ever made, tasted, smelled, etc. They are absolute heaven, and I knew I had to save them for a special occasion to share with you because they are totally, unapologetically indulgent.

Browned Butter Funfetti Cookies: Crunchy on the outside, soft and chewy on the inside bakery-style cookies with fluffy cream cheese frosting

After I got home from New York in November, I wanted to make myself a special marathon treat, and I had been craving a perfect funfetti cookie since trying the one from Schmackary’s. Word has it, Obama sends his secret service men to Schmakary’s to get him cookies when he’s in the city. Fancy.

Browned Butter Funfetti Cookies: Crunchy on the outside, soft and chewy on the inside bakery-style cookies with fluffy cream cheese frosting

Well, I have a confession. I promise, as much as I love attention, I really do hate to toot my own horn. I actually consider myself a fairly modest person, and I always have a hard time telling you how delicious my recipes are because I feel kind of like a tool–like when you talk about how good the food you made was during dinner? It’s, like, the most uncomfortable thing. But THESE COOKIES. I will shout it from the rooftops. I liked them better thank Schmakary’s. I’m sorry. No, I’m not. Those are great, but this is better.

Browned Butter Funfetti Cookies: Crunchy on the outside, soft and chewy on the inside bakery-style cookies with fluffy cream cheese frosting

Apparently birthday week means browned butter week? These were my first time baking (or even tasting!) browned butter, but like I said about the browned butter spaghetti squash–it was sooooo worth the hype! That rich, nutty flavor is uncanny and canNOT be recreated with any substitutes. Every once in a while, it’s just worth having a real, full fat, indulgent cookie. And this was one of those times.

Browned Butter Funfetti Cookies: Crunchy on the outside, soft and chewy on the inside bakery-style cookies with fluffy cream cheese frosting

They came out just like I imagined them–perfectly crunchy outsides with ultra soft, chewy insides. Steve even agreed that he’s rather have mine than the one from Schmakary’s and this one is gluten-free, although you’d never know it. Of course, if you eat gluten, feel free to use white whole wheat flour, or even (gasp) all purpose. I haven’t bought that stuff in years, but these babies are meant for full enjoyment, so have at it! And if you’re so inclined, top ‘em off with some light and fluffy cream cheese frosting. It’s also worth it.

Parmesan Garlic Brown Butter Spaghetti Squash

Parmesan Garlic Brown Butter Spaghetti Squash: The ultimate healthy comfort side dish!

Bold, rich, nutty parmesan garlic brown butter spaghetti squash is the perfect comforting side dish. Tons of nutty, garlic-y flavor, low carb, gluten-free, and just 4 ingredients (+ salt and pepper)!

Parmesan Garlic Brown Butter Spaghetti Squash: The ultimate healthy comfort side dish!

Welcome to the last week of my twenties. So I’m totally that person that is obsessed with my birthday. Like, on my whiteboard at school, there has been a countdown for about two weeks. I love to be celebrated, and I shamelessly love to be the center of attention. I feel like as long as I don’t become one of those people that needs any kind of attention (you know, the poor me, I’ll act crazy so people notice me types?), I refuse to become someone who feels ashamed of loving attention. Why do you think I majored in musical theatre? ;)

Parmesan Garlic Brown Butter Spaghetti Squash: The ultimate healthy comfort side dish!

But have I mentioned how I’m spending the day of the big 3-0? Oh, you know, waking up at 3:30 am to leave on a 4am bus to a musical theatre competition in California with my students. I know. Luckily I love them, and I know it will be a fun trip, but I’d rather be drinking multiple old fashioneds with Steve and having a super sentimental birthday dinner at my favorite restaurant.

Parmesan Garlic Brown Butter Spaghetti Squash: The ultimate healthy comfort side dish!

Ooooh, orrrrrr eating a big steak (Steve is the grill master) and a huge pile of this spaghetti squash at home. Because this dish is so freaking good, it is definitely  birthday dinner worthy. In fact, it was totally fight over the leftovers worthy, and goes down in history as a tie for my favorite thing I have ever made with spaghetti squash.

Parmesan Garlic Brown Butter Spaghetti Squash: The ultimate healthy comfort side dish!

I know, I know, with butter in the title and shots of literally pouring butter onto the food, this hardly seems like a healthy recipe, but honestly for the amount of butter per serving, it’s really not too shabby, and it is so, so, so worth it. The flavor of browned butter is so bold that a little bit goes a long way. It doesn’t hurt that the garlic is cooked in the browned butter. I diiiiie.

Parmesan Garlic Brown Butter Spaghetti Squash: The ultimate healthy comfort side dish!

This was my first time using browned butter in a savory recipe. Actually, I just used it for the first time, like at all, a couple of months ago and, well, now I get it. As a recovering butter hater, let me just say: It’s totally worth it.

Parmesan Garlic Brown Butter Spaghetti Squash: The ultimate healthy comfort side dish!

So dive in. Embrace the browned butter. It comes with a vegetable. ;)

Cook time: 

Total time: 

Serves: 8

Bold, rich, nutty parmesan garlic brown butter spaghetti squash is the perfect comforting side dish. Tons of nutty, garlic-y flavor, low carb, gluten-free, and just 4 ingredients (+ salt and pepper)!
Ingredients
  • 1 extra large (or 2 small) spaghetti squash, halved, seeded and scraped
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 stick (1/2 cup) unsalted butter
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • ½ cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400. Rub spaghetti squash with olive oil and season with a generous pinch of salt and pepper. Roast until fork tender--the spaghetti squash should easily come out when scraped with a fork, about 40-60 minutes, depending on size.
  2. To brown the butter melt in a medium pan over medium heat. Once butter is melted add garlic. Whisk constantly. The butter will start to foam first, then develop golden brown specs. Once you see the brown specs, turn off the heat and continue to whisk for an other 30 seconds, until butter is a nice amber color. Place on a cool surface to avoid continuing to cook and burning. The butter can burn very easily.
  3. Once spaghetti squash has finished cooking, remove the inner flesh (the spaghetti-like part) and place in a large bowl. Toss with browned butter (I recommend not adding it all at once--you may not need it all), and a generous pinch of salt and pepper. Serve topped with freshly grated parmesan cheese. Leftovers may be refrigerated in an airtight container for up to one week.

Healthy Tuna Salad {Without Mayo}

Healthy Tuna Salad: NO mayo, low carb, and super easy!

Healthy, protein packed tuna salad is the perfect light lunch option. Made with creamy Greek yogurt, sweet relish, and crunchy celery–you’ll never miss the mayo!Healthy Tuna Salad: NO mayo, low carb, and super easy!

It’s almost the end of January (ummm what?) which means two things: 1. That I only have two weeks left in my twenties (oyyyyy) and 2. That most of the world has already gotten preoccupied and forgotten about all of those lofty goals and resolutions they set on December 31st.

Easy, healthy & delicious one pan Honey Sriracha Skillet Pork Chops

One of the biggest traps I fall into is being too lazy/forgetful to pack my lunch and ending up going out to eat 4x per week. It’s not the healthiest, and it’s even worse for my checking account. Morning are super busy–they are my time to get my work out in, hopefully get some blog work in before going to work-work, and coffee. So.Much.Coffee. What I mean is…I don’t have time to put together anything that takes me more than about 4 minutes.

Healthy Tuna Salad: NO mayo, low carb, and super easy!

Tuna salad is such an obvious option, but it’s one of those things I always forget how much I love it. Also, I’m not super into globs of mayo. I mean, I’ve always loved traditional tuna salad, but it’s generally not the healthiest option. Like, at all.

Healthy Tuna Salad: NO mayo, low carb, and super easy!

Tuna on it’s own is super healthy: packed with protein, and very low in calories, so when you trade in the mayo for some heart healthy Greek yogurt, you get a lunch with practically zero fat, and tons of protein and flavor!

With this tuna salad, you’ll be making and bringing your lunch all the time! It’s perfect for a quick lunch at home, to take to work, on a picnic, or however you’d like to enjoy it!

So when I discover something I like, I get on this kick where I have to do that same thing in, like, every single way imaginable. I like mac and cheese, so clearly it is my goal in life to develop every type of mac and cheese that could ever be even remotely delicious. Ever.

Honey Sriracha Skillet Pork Chops Recipe

That’s how it is with me and the cast iron lately. Specifically with really, super, ridiculously easy meat dishes that start on the stove top to get that perfect sear, then transfer to the oven to keep cooking without drying out. It’s just so perfect, and it’s only one dish! It’s basically my favorite. Well, the crockpot is up there too. ;)

Ever since I made this chicken, I’ve been a woman obsessed, and that cast iron has gotten more use than ever before. It is so easy to create delicious, flavorful food because the cast iron has magical powers where it locks in all the flavor, and makes everything better.

These pork chops are cooked super simply–just coconut oil, honey, Sriracha and pepper. Yes, that’s 5 ingredients including pepper. And the perfect combination of sweet and spicy.

I just love the way spicy foods add so much flavor to a dish, and keep healthy eating exciting! That’s why I was so stoked when this month’s theme of The Recipe ReDux was all about spice. These pork chops deliver the perfect punch, with minimal effort. Win, win.

Sweet and spicy honey sriracha skillet pork chops are so easy and flavorful with only a handful of ingredients, and one pan. Get rid of the idea that healthy food has to be bland or complicated--this dinner is so easy and delicious, you will make it over and over again!
Ingredients
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil (enough to coat the pan--more or less is fine)
  • 4 large pork loin chops
  • generous pinch black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon good quality honey
  • 1 tablespoon Sriracha
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350. Heat coconut oil over medium heat in an oven-proof skillet, preferably cast iron. Season chops with pepper only (I found that salting them made the entire dish taste like salt) and brown in your skillet, about 3-5 minutes per side. You will know pork is ready to be turned when it easily releases from the pan. If you're having trouble, let it continue to cook. It will release when it's browned and ready. Add honey and Sriracha.
  2. Transfer skillet to the oven and bake until pork is cooked through and juices run clear, about 15 minutes. Stir around the juices on the bottom of the pan to mix the pork renderings, coconut oil, honey and Sriracha all together. Serve immediately. I suggest spooning a little bit of the extra liquid on top. Leftovers may be refrigerated in an airtight container for 5-7 days.
