Burrito Bowl

As I recently mentioned in my Cilantro Lime Rice post, I love Qdoba and Chipotle.  When I go there, I always order the same thing - a Burrito Bowl, or Naked Burrito, consisting of: Rice, Meat and Cheese.  As plain and simple as it is, I cannot get enough of it and often crave it.  Whatever meat I chose all depends on my mood, but it's usually Grilled Chicken or Shredded Beef.  Eventually I will find a shredded beef recipe that I will want to use to make these at home, but until then I stick with a simply marinated grilled chicken - the marinade usually consisting of a little EVOO, Lime Juice, a bit of tequila, some garlic, chili powder and jalapeño... delicious!

While this isn't much of a recipe, I still wanted to post, for anyone that loves burrito bowls like I do.  They're so easy to make at home with your own modifications.  Just because I like mine plain, as you can tell from the picture, doesn't mean you can't go all out!

  2. I love chipotle best and that's always what I order too--except with loads of salsa beans and veggies as well. I need to attempt to make the rice at home so we can just enjoy these from our own kitchen! Thanks for the inspiration :)

The Best Vanilla Cupcake Recipe

A fabulous vanilla cupcake recipe is something everyone needs. EVERY.ONE. Not just bakers. Not just parents that host a lot of kid parties. Everyone. I've tried several, and many have been phenomenal. Then I tried Amy Sedaris's after finding the recipe online, and it was above and beyond the best vanilla cupcake I've ever made. It was an easy batter to make, baked up beautifully, and most importantly - tasted amazing. Regardless if you have never made vanilla cupcakes and need a recipe to start with, or even if you think you have the best - give this one a shot. You will not be disappointed! Vanilla Cupcakes Ingredients: 1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter, room temperature 1 1/2 cups sugar 2 eggs 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder 1/4 teaspoon salt 2 1/2 cups flour 1 1/4 cups milk Directions: - Preheat oven to 375 degrees. - Mix butter at medium speed until smooth. Mix in sugar until well blended. - Add eggs, mixing until fully

Classic Monkey Bread

For a few years I made monkey bread muffins for Christmas morning, and for some reason I got out of that habit. Then we had kids and I thought I'd get back in to it, but I didn't until recently. But I recently made classic loaf Monkey Bread and realized that it's just better than muffins. It's not like a loaf is any less "complicated" to make, or really tastes different, but there is something easier about it. And I haven't had a single loaf bubble over and cause a mess in my oven! I'm so happy to have brought this back in to our lives. Not that it takes long to put together or bake, but this is the perfect lazy weekend (or Christmas morning) breakfast. I have even started the process in advance before, by cutting the biscuits and measuring the sugar and cinnamon in a bag the night before. After all, the biscuit cutting is the most time consuming part. Wake, assemble, and voila! Do you have a big crowd to feed, or kids that devour sweets? Simply

Slow Cooker or Pressure Cooker Beef Chili

I don't experiment much with chili because it rarely goes well for me and my family. I've slowly adapted my chili recipe over the years, but I've still always used canned chili beans, with a flavored sauce. I've been wanting to try regular beans (whether canned or dried, I wasn't discerning, just didn't want the sauce), so off to the Googles I went rather than trying to recreate the spice blend from my normal canned beans. Because I was originally planning to make chili in the Instant Pot, that's where I focused my search. Thankfully the recipe I decided to try was adapted from a Slow Cooker recipe, because life got in my way and I wasn't able to make the chili the night before as planned, and I wouldn't have had time to use the pressure cooker with my schedule that day. What drew me to this recipe was the simplicity of the ingredients. And lack of jalapeno. Because somehow nearly every time I plan chili I forget to buy a jalapeno, even if it
