Herb + Sea Salt Sweet Potato Fries

This post is sponsored by Alexia Foods. All opinions are my own.

With the New Year often comes new resolutions to eat a more balanced diet. Sound familiar? I think I resolve to eat better every January, but often dread the idea of ditching delicious, flavorful snacks. The good news is, delicious snacks can fit into a balanced meal plan (as in this recipe!).

The nice bonus, is that they are also really simple to make. Win-win. Alexia Sweet Potato Fries are all-natural and made with premium ingredients. I jazzed them up a bit but they are also perfect right out of the oven. (more…)

The Perfect Weekend Breakfast Tacos

This is a sponsored post. All opinions are my own.

Confession: I’m a sucker for a great breakfast or brunch recipe. There’s just something exciting about a dish you can eat in the morning that is unusual and delicious (no offense pancakes). These breakfast tacos are the perfect recipe if you’re looking to spice up your weekend morning routine.

This time of year is more like “hibernation season” around this household. Our idea of a great weekend is starting off with a delicious meal and enjoying a family-themed movie marathon. I recently made a platter of these breakfast tacos and they were a huge hit! (more…)

Serve It :: Cranberry Bruschetta Appetizer

Having an impressive (but simple) holiday appetizer recipe in your arsenal is sort of like having a super power. It might not be the same as x-ray vision, but I think it could come in handy just the same.

Tailgating At Home :: Pizza + Pumpkin Shandy

Two things are true this time of year in my household: we watch a lot of football and we always seem to have a house full of family and friends. I love that entertaining on game day has a much more relaxed vibe which means it’s the perfect opportunity to keep things simple. No need to fuss in the kitchen or plan a ton of appetizers. Simply bake your favorite frozen pizzas and serve up a beer cocktail –you’ll make everyone happy!

Last weekend we had a few friends over to watch the game and I served up this pumpkin shandy beer cocktail (recipe below). It was really delicious and easy enough for guests to whip up themselves. This means more relaxing for the hostess and more time to visit with friends while we watched the game. (more…)

Chicken and Waffle (Fries) Sliders

This post is sponsored by Alexia Foods.

We’re a couple weeks into the school year and our house is already buzzing with after-school activities, sports, and jam-packed weekends. This means I have less time to be in the kitchen preparing meals and weekend snack –but that doesn’t mean I still don’t want to serve memorable food. To make it all work, I try to plan quicker meals and get the family to help out in the prep and cooking. This weekend, we all pitched in and made these DELICIOUS chicken and waffle fries sliders!

These two-bite sliders were bursting with flavor and a mini meal that we all enjoyed. We used tomatoes and jalapeños growing in our garden which added a nice fresh flavor. Alexia Seasoned Waffle Cut Fries sandwiched slices of breaded chicken, topped with a maple-mayo (don’t skip this part!), fresh tomato, and a slice of jalapeño (which added just the perfect amount of spice).
