{bay bakes // chocolate chip cookie bars}

Sweet. Salty. Chocolaty. Shall I keep going?

If you’re working on your quarantine bod too, I got a good one for you. Really, Bay has a good one for you!

In the last week or so there is one thing I’ve become very good at, taste testing! Ha! And these bars get my stamp of delicious approval.

Is it possible that baking cookies into the form of bars actually makes them taste better? I think Bay might be on to something here!

{pf chang’s lettuce wraps}

Happy Hump Day friends! I’m trying my best to be peppy AF, but to be honest – I’m not feeling it. Politics. Coronavirus. Nashville. It’s just kinda sad, you know what I mean? And I gave up beer + wine, so I can’t even self medicate (my favorite way) at the end of the day.

Since I don’t have much to say – let’s keep it short + sweet! How about a bomb ass recipe?

If you had to choose between being skinny or eating tacos. Would you choose crunchy or soft tacos 🌮🤔

Or Taco Bell 😆 I’m telling you a Taco Bell on the beach is good for the soul 🌊 add it to you summer to-do list!

It’s been a while since I shared a good ol Taco Tuesday recipe. I’ve kinda switched gears and Tuesday have become a regular Target sharing day. But, I tried out a new recipe last week and….

HIT it straight out of the ballpark. With help of the ever so talented, Half Baked Harvest. This recipe was adapted from her oven baked tacos. I just switched it up a bit to make them a little more xoxo stacyb….and a lot less ingredients!

{valentine’s day snack board}

In case you haven’t heard – snack boards are all the rage right now. And for good reason! They are so fun for kids and grown ups, VERY easy to throw together and allow you to offer something for everyone to snack on.

I really try to focus on healthy-ish recipes, but the Holiday Whore in me just can’t help it this time of year.

{pioneer woman pasta bake}

Company casserole. Hot dish (as Stover would call it). Pasta bake. Mom’s spaghetti pie. You name it – every family has their version of this recipe. Using the same basic ingredients in each. Except we jazz it up a bit. You know know I roll.

This recipe was adapted from on on Pioneer Woman’s classics. With my own little spin on it.

Whenever there is a meal train, someone has a baby, or you just feel like taking a homie something delish. This is the recipe! Promise. It’s a crowd pleaser. It’s one of those just good for the soul meals. Ya know what I mean?
