What We've Been Eating

It's been a long, long time since I've talked about food here on the blog. I'm happy to say I've been doing a lot of cooking lately now that food tastes good again! I love, love trying new recipes and seeing if they're a hit or miss. There are a few new things we've tried that we loved and will be added to our dinner rotation. Sadly, I've been a bad blogger in the sense that I haven't taken my own pictures, but rest assured these bloggers are much more talented than me in the photography department and make their recipes look much more appealing than if I shared my own photos!

Coconut Crunch Chicken Fingers- I made these last night! The dip is so good, I didn't have mango on hand but it was still delicious. Instead of frying them in vegetable oil I fried them in a skillet with olive oil, so tasty!

Skinny Baked Potato Soup- I love soups once the evenings start to cool off. What I love about this one is that half the soup is actually cauliflower, which you really can't tell. Great way to get a serving of veggies into a picky eater.

Cream Cheese Chicken Enchiladas- I've tried many enchilada recipes and this is one of my favorites. I love that there is cream cheese and sour cream in the mixture, I also like to add whatever veggies I have on hand like peppers or corn, and I always add black beans. I had cilantro to use up and added that to the mix to and it made such a difference, definitely doing that from now on.

Pot Roast- Another favorite when the nights turn cooler- pot roast! I didn't like pot roast for the longest time until I started making it in the crock pot. I used this recipe as a guide, following the directions for searing the meat and veggies and then I pour everything into the crock pot and cook on low for 6-8 hours, depending on the size of your roast. The hubby really liked it and it was even better the next day in as a sandwich (Hawaiian roll with a white cheese, so good).

What have you tried recently that you loved? Or any favorite recipes to share?
