For as long as I can remember I do my normal weekly grocery shops at ShopRite! They have the freshest produce and everything I could ever need to make healthy meals throughout the week. I wanted to highlight something I have been doing lately though instead of going to the grocery store- I have been ordering my groceries through the ShopRite App on my phone and having them delivered or picking them up- it’s super easy. You place your order on the app, pick a time slot for delivery/pickup and thats it! Easy, fast and most importantly it allows me more time at home with my Husband and our pets! My favorite thing!
Over the weekend I made some snacks for us to watch the football games! We had our groceries delivered from ShopRite and then we got to work! We made Wonton Tacos or as I call them “taco cupcakes” together and they were SO good. Basically they are just little taco shells with all the stuff thats in a taco. I listed how to do it and what you need below.
1 package Ground Beef or Turkey
1 package Wonton Wrappers
Olive oil spray (i used Pam)
packet Taco Seasoning
about 2 cups Shredded Cheese (I used cheddar)
Toppings! Whatever you like I used Salsa, Guacamole, Sour cream and Olives
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Brown your ground beef and add in the Taco seasoning. In the meantime, Spray a cupcake tray with your Olive Oil spray.
2. Place the wonton wrappers like you would a cupcake paper in each little well. Once your meat is cooked, place about a tablespoon in each wonton wrapper and top the meat with some shredded cheese. Then repeat this again- top with another wonton wrapper, meat, and cheese and you will basically have two layers. I press each layer down with a spoon too.
3. Bake them in the oven for about 8 minutes. Keep an eye on them they brown fast!
4. Garnish your taco cups. I top mine with some guacamole, Sour cream, fresh salsa and black olives. You can add anything though- taco sauce and green onions are some other ideas!
Who else loves popcorn?! I looove more than anything sitting down to watch a movie and having some popcorn (and wine😂 ) and watching a movie. Movie theatre and pre-made popcorn has so many unnecessary things in it like preservatives and not to mention tons of butter and sodium. I have been making popcorn on my stove for years- or you can get an air popper (linked one that is about $30 HERE) I just never really felt it was necessary but it does make it easier if you would prefer not to use your stove top.
I recently have been obsessed with anything truffle since its sooo flavorful! I found truffle oil and a powder truffle zest on Amazon and have been experimenting with it. I have been using it on veggies and pasta and now popcorn and it is SO good. All I do is pop some popcorn in olive oil (since you need a high eat oil) then I drizzle the truffle oil in place of butter and add some of the powdered zest and some sea salt and you have yourself a delicious snack! I linked everything below!
Okay SO this post has taken me a while to get to BUT I am super excited to finally have it up! Moving into a new house and purchasing furniture takes soo much more time than I thought it would. We have majority of the big items, but there are still so many little things that I am wanting to get. Wall decor is still missing- but my favorite thing to shop for are the little things that bring the room together. I dedicated this post to linking all those items up! In my opinion this part of decorating is always the most fun!
For those of you who are as home decor obsessed as I have been lately I am alllll about the home sales. Mackenzie Childs has some of the cutest stuff for your home! I love the Courtly Check pattern so much!
I have had my eye on the tea kettle for so long and finally ordered! These items are not cheap but you can’t beat the quality. Every single item is hand made and painted. I linked up some of my top picks for your guys!
I remember growing up I used to LOVE when my mom and grandma would make homemade ice pops on a hot summer day. They used to put whatever juice was in the fridge in ice pop trays and my siblings and I would literally go crazy over them. Such a simple thing! I wanted to create some yummy ice pops since its been so hot out here. I wanted something a little sweet though and these came out perfect!
1/2 Cup Nutella (or any chocolate hazelnut spread)
1 1/2 Cup Chocolate Almond Milk
( you can also add in a little greek yogurt to get some added protein!)
Take the half cup of nutella and put in a mixing bowl. Then slowly whisk in the chocolate almond milk. Pour into silicone ice pop trays (I find these work the best) The recipe yields about 4-5 ice pops so I usually will double the recipe to make some extra!
I am a sucker for anything buffalo! My weakness is definitely buffalo chicken dip😅 so I wanted to do a skinny version! And best part is its cooked in a crock pot so you don’t have to dirty dishes OR stand over the stove. You basically just throw everything in and let it cook. SO simple and yummy.
1.) Cook your chicken in the crockpot for about 4 hours on high or 6-7 on low. If you are using precooked rotisserie chicken you just have to shred it. (if you are using precooked rotisserie chicken you dont need the crock pot you can just do the following steps in a pot on the stove)
2.) Once the chicken is cooked, shred it. Empty out the excess water the chicken cooked in. Once emptied, add in the rest of your ingredients. Stir together and let cook together on low for about 30-45 minutes.
3.) Serve with Tortilla chips, carrots, Celery, pita chips, potato wedges or my new favorite is have the buffalo dip in a taco wrap! SO good and makes for a perfect dinner.
