I’m baaaack! I’ve been away for a hot second due to travel and schoolwork, but I’m finally back. And I’m celebrating my return by teaming up with Diet Coke® to share one of my all-time favorite easy weeknight dinner recipes with y’all!
If you haven’t hit up your local Kroger recently, you probably haven’t seen the brand-new designs for Diet Coke… or any of the new flavors! You can still get classic Diet Coke (the original flavor, my personal fave), but now they’ve also launched flavors like Diet Coke® Feisty Cherry, Diet Coke® Ginger Lime, Diet Coke® Twisted Mango, and Diet Coke® Zesty Blood Orange. Each is available in 8-packs or in single cans for on-the go. You can find the flavor that best fits you and your personality here! For this post, I decided to feature classic Diet Coke – a longtime staple in my fridge – alongside my recipe for crockpot turkey chili (aka the perfect easy weeknight dinner!).
It has been a hot second since I last posted a recipe (see my last one here). However, after all of the comments and DMs after I posted this lil crab pasta salad dish on Instagram earlier this month, I knew I had to share this recipe with y’all!
Before we kick off, I used a Texas-shaped pasta to make this dish (you can buy some here). BUT you can obviously make it with a variety of pasta types. I’d recommend using shells, orzo, rotini, or penne… but totally up to you!
I’m baaaaack! Sorry for the radio silence, kiddies. Sunday night I was like “Monday’s a holiday… no post” and then Monday night I was like “I’m a deep-fried lobster who did nothing but lounge around looking at attractive men all day but somehow that’s all super exhausting so I’m going to sleep instead of writing Tuesday’s post”.
And now y’all know what my thoughts sound like… and why I choose not to voice like 88% of them. Yep, I know, you’re thanking me for that.
So now for today’s recipe: orzo with peas. Y’all. This is one of my all-time favorite recipes. I make it all of the time for dinners with friends, or I’ll make a giant vat of it on Sunday and eat it throughout the entire week. It’s always a huge hit… plus this orzo with peas recipe is super delicious hot or cold! Keep reading for the full recipe (and there’s an AMAZING giveaway at the bottom of this post!)
May the Fourth be with you and Happy Star Wars day, y’all!
In case you don’t know how a calendar works, tomorrow is Cinco de Mayo. That means that chips and queso, margaritas and palomas, and lots and lots of tacos – including these fish tacos – are absolutely necessary. Don’t know yet what you’ll be eating during your celebrations? Might I suggest these fish tacos? They’re so easy to make and are the perfect crowd-pleaser. Keep reading for the full recipe!
Did you catch my wonton soup on my Instagram over the weekend? I holed up all afternoon on Sunday with my friend to watch House of Cards and make this super yummy dish.
This wonton soup is fairly time-intensive to make, but a) it’s so stinkin’ worth it and b) 90% of the recipe is really mindless so you can totally zone out (and watch House of Cards, for example) while making the wontons. The perfect dish to make on Sunday afternoon!
If, however, you want to eat this dish on a school night, I would recommend making the wontons ahead of time. You can place them in a plastic container and freeze them after making them. That way, when you want to make your soup, all you have to do is boil the wontons and make the broth and you’re ready to go. Sounds complicated, I know. But seriously – it’s only like 10 minutes. Perfect quick dish for a weeknight!
