Spicy Black Bean Burgers

Tay is always wanting me to make vegetarian food. Lately she has really wanted black bean burgers. When I started thinking of how to make them I decided that I wanted them to be SPICY. I have been waiting to make these for weeks now and finally had the time. One thing I really love about these burgers is you could easily double the recipe and have them in the freezer ready to go! Quick and easy dinner for the weeknights.

Easy Refrigerator Pickled Veggies

I will eat pickled A N Y T H I N G. Okay, okay... maybe not anything, but just about any vegetable. I personally love love love pickled cauliflower, but you can NEVER find just pickled cauliflower. So what started off as a journey to pickle some cauliflower ended with me pickling the whole produce department. It made for some super awesome snacks.

Slow Cooker Spicy Beans

My FAVORITE meal as a kid was rice and beans. I loved it so much that I made special requests on my birthdays. Weird?  Probably. I was interesting.  Regardless, my mom made the best beans. I started out on a mission to re-create them, but ended up making something all of my own. Not ONLY did they turn out amazing... they were incredibly easy. See for yourself...

Easy Meat and Cheese Lasagna

Why is it that lasagna seems so difficult to make? In reality... a simple lasagna is crazy easy. I even made the sauce. The other really awesome thing about lasagna... you can freeze it if you want to bake it for another day. I am a HUGE fan of freezer meals. I love coming home from work and being able to just throw something in the oven. Home cooked meals that are easy as 1, 2, 3... SIGN ME UP!!!
