{tiktok baked feta pasta}

The pasta that went viral. I’m sure you’ve all seen it by now, right? Baked feta pasta. It’s a low effort recipe for pasta with tomatoes and cheese…I mean, what’s not to love, right?

But, you know I couldn’t follow the Gen Z way of making it. According to these punks – side parts + skinny jeans are old. Ha! So, I had to put my own little xoxo stacyb spin on the recipe that EVERYONE is making + loving!

{slow cooker queso}

I legit debated for at least 30 minutes now about whether or not I should be sharing this recipe today.

Here’s the deal – It’s not that this queso is not delicious – because let’s keep it really real. It is DELICIOUS!!! It’s just that I have been trying really hard to clean up my act, food-wise.

And now that I’ve edited photos + thought about it, I accidentally added all the items to my target drive-up order. FML!

I went back and forth on this issue for waaay to long, but then I decided you all need a little queso in your lives too! Ha!

It’s just the right thing to do.

{breakfast croissant strata}

Nothing screams HOLIDAYS more than a breakfast casserole. We grew up on Christmas morning breakfast casserole. My Mom still makes the exact same breakfast to this very day. The nostalgia, ya know?

Well, I picked up the Half Baked Harvest new cookbook Super Simple. Flipped through it for a bit and stumbled on the most beautiful image. A breakfast casserole. With a more sophisticated name: Buttery Croissant Strata. I may have drooled.

Buttery croissants. Melty cheese. Crispy prosciutto. All baked to a warm goodness.

{the perfect pot roast}

Wish the weather was on track with my comfort food cravings lately.  The season changed, but the California weather – not so much.

I emailed Cory this recipe on Monday, just a reminder. Since we haven’t made it since last winter. And his response: Making it tonight.

SCORE!

Cory started making this Pioneer Women Pot Roast back in 2015. {weekend notes} It’s still one of our ultimate favorite fall/winter recipes ever. It’s easy AF. Delish AF. And easy clean-up.

{sheet pan salmon}

You guys – I wrote in my Intentions for the week to share a recipe. And here ya go. Holding myself to it. Last night I made my famous (not really lol) {sheet pan sausage + veggies}. I’m a BIG fan of sheet pan meals.

The clean up is key for week nights. And they’re typically pretty healthy recipes….protein + veggies.

Did I mention, I no longer have a dishwasher? I AM the dishwasher. Ha! Our little old 1950’s house has no dishwasher. We plan to do a kitchen renovation in about 6 months….fingers crossed. And a dishwasher is at the tip-pity top of my “must have” list.

I was always one to store my dirty dishes in the dishwasher. Until it was full, then run it. Anyone else?

And I made my sheet pan sausage + veggies last night, it reminded me of this salmon dish I made a few weeks ago. I snapped photos and planned to share it the next day. Then I probably decided to blog about Target or something.
