{top 10 xoxostacyb recipes}


How is Christmas 2 frickin weeks away?  I’m not sure what the hell is going on in my world, but I’m wayyy behind.  Like, I’ve never been more unprepared than I am now.

Shit – I still don’t have a single ornament on my damn tree….ha!  Stockings are still in the Christmas tub, along with everything else.  And that’s the least of my worries.

I still have to pick up a gift for just about every person on my list.  And most of them, I don’t even have a clue what to even buy for them.

Anyone else struggling this year too?

So let’s chat about something else today, like…..food!!!

Everyone has that go-to recipe they straight up kill it on every time.  A crowd pleaser.  That recipe you always get asked to bring to every party.

It’s kind like your magic power, you know?

So, I’m sharing my Top Recipes.  The one’s I’ve made over and over again.  If you’ve ever had dinner at my house, chances are you’ve sank your teeth into one of these dishes before.  The food, not the dish.  Ha.  I crack myself up.

If you’ve stuck in a dinner rut, save this post.  You can “Pin” it to your pinterest page.  Print it.


Okay enough rambling…here they are:


{Hawaiian Grilled Chicken}

My Mom gave me this one.  It’s a total crowd pleaser.  Whenever I can’t think of anything to make, this is my go-to.  It’s best if you leave the chicken in the marinade overnight.  And you HAVE to use chicken thighs.  Tried chicken breasts and it just wasn’t the same!



{thai coconut curry shrimp}

This one is quick + easy + healthy + packed with flavor.  I’d have to take off my shoes and use my toes to count how many times this recipe has been served in my house.



{slow cooker salsa chicken}

The most versatile chicken recipe.  Throw frozen chicken breasts + a jar of salsa in the slow cooker.  Done!  Then use the chicken for the week….in tacos + over salads + enchilada filling.  You name it.  This is the recipe I use on a crazy busy week.  When I want to eat healthy, but have zero time.



{steak roll-ups with balsamic glaze}

Save this one for a weekend when you have more time to prep.  But, please promise me you’ll try this recipe.  It’s a great way to get all kinds of veggies on your kids plate.  Serve over mashed potatoes….BOMB!


{spinach orzo pasta salad}

Pulling up old recipes is fun and cringey.  I will be re-making this salad ASAP and updating with new photos.  The photo here does this recipe NO justice.  This is hands-down my more requested salad of all time.



{Mom’s Famous Chicken Tortilla Casserole}

100% the most requested recipe from my mom.  Not naming any names, but we’ve got some picky eaters in our family.  But, I don’t know anyone who wont unbutton their jeans for a second helping of this casserole.



{grilled salmon + avocado salsa}

Once again, terrible photo.  Great recipe.  And this was only 1 damn year ago.  I bet my My Dad would tell you this is his favorite salmon recipe.  Healthy + easy weeknight dinner.  I love it served over delicata squash.



{mom’s famous thai pasta salad}

I’m noticing a trend…most of these recipes originated from my Mom.  I learned from the best!  This salad is always a hit.  Make it the night before.  That way the noodles have lots of time to soak up the sauce.  Damn, my mouth is watering just thinking about these noodles.  Yum!



{sheet pan sausage + veggies}

Not going to lie, I make this almost weekly.  It’s the perfect way to use up all the veggies in the fridge.  You can switch it up using all kinds of different ingredients.  And I can promise the end result will always be so good.  Bay loves it too.  Makes for great leftovers too!  You can make it as clean or dirty as you like 🙂




{10 minute salsa}

Last but certainty not least, my 10 minute salsa.  It’s a throw everything in the food processor.  Pulse.  Done.  Great flavor + consistency.  What’s your go-to snack?  Our’s will forever be chips + salsa.  We live off this shit year round.




Don’t forget you can always “pin” for later.  But, more importantly….Pretty PLEASE let me know if you try one of these recipes.  Text me.  Tag me.  Call me.  I love this shit!!


Happy eating!
