• Instant Pot Pulled Pork Verde

    I am obsessed with this Instant Pot Salsa Verde Pulled Pork… truly OBSESSED!!  LIKE REALLY OBSESSED! Pulled Pork Love! I love me some good pulled pork, but when you add in a little heat from some salsa and green chilies it takes it to a whole new level.  This pork is cooked in a delicious mixture of salsa, chilies, stock and spices.  Once it all cooks down it becomes this amazing concentrated spicy sauce that takes this pork to the next level. Broil it a bit… In the idea of a carnita I pulled the pot from the broth and broiled it for just a bit to give it some…

  • Sweet & Spicy Bacon

    Bacon is always a good thing in my world… but this bacon is AMAZING!!! Bake it Baby! The trick to this bacon is baking it…do you normally bake it?  I started baking mine a while ago…not only does it make perfectly crisp, but still tender & it is so much LESS messy.  There is no grease spattering up to burn you and you can let it bake while you work on something else such as eggs or gravy, making breakfast a breeze and so YUMMY!   Spice it up! For this recipe I sprinkled it with a spice combo that is a little sweet with a little heat making for a perfect piece…

  • Italian Sausage & Brussels Sprouts Skillet

    Italian Sausage & Brussels Sprouts skillet is a must make.  I am getting ready to jump back onto the KETO bandwagon and this will be on my food plan for sure. Skillet Meal in NO Time One of the best things about this one skillet recipe is how quick it comes together…in 30 minutes you can have dinner on the table.  The sausage cooks down and gives you just enough grease to sauté the shaved sprouts in, and it adds a TON of flavor to the dish s well. I purchase my brussels sprouts already shaved which saves a TON of time, if you cannot find them already shaved then…

  • Pork Medallions with Creamy Mushroom Sauce

    I think this is the first time the word mushroom has been in the title of any post I have EVER made.  It was not until a month or so ago that I even started eating them…and now I LOVE THEM, and they are perfect in this dish! Pork & Mushrooms While I was at the store the other day I came across a beautiful pork tenderloin.  Now I am a big pork tenderloin fan, but I wanted to make a one skillet dinner so i decided to cut the tenderloin into medallions.  Not only did it make the cooking time minimal, it also made for super tender little chunks…

  • One Pan Sausage & Veggies

    YES you read that right this is a one pan dinner…yes ONE pan.  Even better it is loaded with veggies and yummy turkey smoked sausage making this dish not only easy but also delicious and not so bad for you too. Season, Season, Season To make this dish really stand out it is all about the seasoning.  To keep it simple though I chose a seasoning mix that brought a ton of flavor but you probably already have everything you need in the pantry.   I mixed together salt, pepper, garlic powder, chili powder and dried parsley.   If you wanted to use your favorite all purpose seasoning you could…
