Slow-Cooker Turkey Mole Street Tacos

Slow-Cooker Turkey Mole Street Tacos

I love street tacos. Actually, I love all tacos. Fish tacos. Beef tacos. Chicken tacos. Hard tacos. Soft tacos. Chocotacos. Tacos are where it’s at. But back to street tacos. Truthfully, I don’t know what the technical definition of a “street taco” is (I don’t know if there even is one), but I’ve taken it to describe a simple taco served in a warm corn tortilla. If that’s right, then I think I can safely call this recipe a street taco. If it’s not, then I’m going to dangerously call it a street taco….

Mini Turkey Pot Pies

Mini Turkey Pot Pies

This post was originally published in January of 2012. We’ve re-photographed it and re-published it from the archives for you to enjoy with your leftovers from this Thanksgiving!

On Christmas Eve, Josh and I brined a turkey, and it was the most amazing turkey I have ever tasted. I was thrilled when we had turkey meat leftovers – and I knew just wanted I wanted to make with them. A Turkey Pot Pie, but not just any pot pie – a pot pie made in my cute ramekins. Ramekins are such an incredibly smart invention. So cute and tiny – but full of power. Power to create meals that will have you oohing and awing as if it were a newborn baby! Okay, maybe that’s a bit extreme…but, if we’re being honest here…the oohing and awing was exactly what I did when my little minis popped out of the oven! Yes, I’m ridiculous!…

Cooking with Gracie: Caramel Shortbread

It’s been over a month since my last Cooking with Gracie post. We skipped doing a recipe in October due to my surgery, recovery, and the start of school. All of that is behind us now (thank goodness), which means we can move onto more fun adventures – like cooking and baking. For those of…

Nutella Swirled Sweet Potato Pie

Nutella Swirled Sweet Potato Pie

As a family, we love to watch cooking shows on the Food Network channel. Primarily, the competition-based ones, though occasionally on a Saturday morning (if I’m awake early enough) you can find me watching The Pioneer Woman or Giada. But usually on Sunday evenings or the occasional weeknight, we’ll have a laid back dinner at…

Pomegranate Molasses Glazed Turkey

Thanksgiving turkey is something we have experimented with just a little bit. It’s kind of scary. If you mess up an omelet, you’re out two eggs and a bit of milk, and you start again, right? A pie is worse – some flour and a decent amount of work out the window. A steak is…

Apple & Onion Stuffing

Apple & Onion Stuffing

Believe it or not, I’ve never made stuffing from scratch. Believe it or not, I actually like the stuffing from the box. *Gasp* I’ve always wanted to make my own stuffing, and I seriously considered making some last year when we hosted Thanksgiving at our house, but not enough time to experiment and so many coupons…

Tuesday’s Tidings!

1. This weekend, we took Grace to get a new coat. I had originally planned on going to Kohls and possibly Old Navy before hitting up the mall if we hadn’t found anything in those stores, and because I had stuff I wanted to look at there. But, on a whim to get Starbucks, we hit…

Weekly Menu 11/17-11/23

Only 10 days until Thanksgiving! We went grocery shopping yesterday and boy was the store crowded! People are already beginning their Thanksgiving “stock up” and I think next Sunday will be even worse. Josh is already trying to persuade me to go grocery shopping the following Monday instead of Sunday, but I think it will…
