Island Glazed Pork Tenderloin

I knew it would be good but this tenderloin ended up turnout out 10 times more delicious than I’d anticipated. The glaze is sweet and spicy, the pork is juicy and tender, and the best part is that it only requires about 30 minutes start to finish!


Baked Garlic Parmesan Potato Wedges

Oh heaven, these potato wedges. Turns out the world loves cheese + garlic + potatoes as much as I do because these were easily my most popular recipe of 2015! They are perfect dipped in ranch or blue cheese dressing and because they are baked, they’re healthier than most “fries”!


Slow Cooker Chicken Marsala

Another one of my very very popular recipes this year! So easy to whip up in your crockpot. And if you’re not into mushrooms, feel free to leave them out. My husband isn’t a fan of mushrooms but I leave them in big thick slices and he can easily pick his out.


Banana Bread Pancakes

Probably one of the most beautiful things I ate this year and definitely one of the tastiest breakfasts that happened in my kitchen. Everything you love about moist, sweet banana bread in a pancake!


Mandarin Pasta Spinach Salad with Teriyaki Dressing

This salad… it’s all about that dressing! Use a good thick teriyaki sauce and you will have THE best dressing of your life. It’s a salad that is perfect for mixing things up – not your usual chopped romaine and ranch dressing – with pine nuts, mandarin oranges, dried cranberries, cilantro, bowtie pasta noodles, and that heavenly dressing. It gets RAVE reviews all the time!


Triple Chocolate Zucchini Bread

Heaven almighty THIS BREAD. Triple chocolate pretty much says it all. It’s for the true chocolate lovers and the perfect way to use up all of that summer zucchini!


Slow Cooker Broccoli Beef

I made this slow cooker broccoli beef when my grandparents came to visit last spring. I couldn’t get over how good the sauce was – finger licking good I’m tellin’ ya. When my husband and grandparents tried it and fell in love, I knew it was going to be a huge hit with anyone I shared it with. It has turned out to be one of my most popular recipes EVER on this here blog. A go-to for sure!


Firecracker Shrimp Wonton Tacos

If these little tacos aren’t beautiful enough, they will win you over with their flavor. Absolutely AMAZING! Sweet and spicy shrimp, crunchy romaine, and juicy mango!


Slow Cooker Mozzarella Stuffed Meatballs

Cheese stuffed anything is a winner, am I right?? These have been a huge hit this year and it’s easy to see why!


Frozen Strawberry Cheesecake

I’m fairly certain I ate half of this frozen strawberry cheesecake all by myself. I’m basically obsessed with that crust and it is SO easy to make!


Slow Cooker Jalapeño Popper Chicken Taquitos

I have had so so SO many people tell me that they made these, loved them, and have come back to make them again, and again, and again, and AGAIN! The flavor is incredibly yummy and they are a cinch to make!


Baked Monte Cristo Party Sliders

This is a brand new recipe I’ve already made 3 times in just the two short weeks it has been on the blog – these little handheld cuties are SO yummy and are inspired by the famous Disneyland sandwiches, a must-make!


Honey Sriracha Chicken

For the spicy-food-lovers!!! Sriracha sauce (hot Asian chili sauce) is a new thing in my life and now I put it on e-ver-y-thing. The combination of that and honey make an incredibly sweet and spicy sauce for this Asian chicken dish. Extremely popular with readers and a hit in my house!


Stuffed Pepper Soup

This year I combed through my mother’s old piles of yellow-paged recipe books and came across a recipe for stuffed pepper soup – I made a few little changes and this tasty soup is the end result – I absolutely love the flavors and it is a quick 30-minute meal!


Baja Fish Tacos

It’s no secret that I have a special place in my heart for tacos and FISH tacos are high on my list of favorites! After ordering baja fish tacos in restaurants across the states this year, I made my own 20-minute version and these are BOMBlicious!

I made the Chicken Marsala the other day and it was really fabulous! I had to alter the receipe, using Prosecco instead of Marsala. I started dinner too late to completely cook it in the slow cooker. I sauteed the mushrooms and half the garlic in 1 Tbs. of EVO and 2 Tbs of butter in a grill pan. Setting those aside, I added 5 thin sliced chicken breast halves to the same pan and browned them on both sides. Adding chicken and mushrooms to the slow cooker, I then deglazed the pan using a cup of Prosecco and poured it over the chicken and mushrooms. I cooked on low for two hours. I removed the chicken and finished the sauce in a pan. It was delicious with gorgeous color, great flavor, and texture. I used two cups of mushrooms because they shrink so much when sauteed. With the left over chicken I made delicious sandwiches using herbed baguette, a spicy white cheddar. This is already a family favorite and in my daughter’s cookbook.
