Easy Weeknight Dinner: Cheeseburger Burritos

cheeseburger-burritos

No matter the season, I am always on a quest for quick weeknight dinners. Summer recipes have been a little easier since we can use the grill, but that isn’t an option for every night. We were planning to have burgers on the grill one day last week until a storm hit. Instead of grilling in the rain, I came up with this easy weeknight dinner: cheeseburger burritos.

Mac & Cheese Spaghetti Squash

Mac & Cheese Spaghetti Squash Recipe @rachmccarthy7
My love for comfort food {mac and cheese in particular} runs deep. And as much as I love this “not so good for you food” and would be fine eating it most days of the week, that can’t actually happen in reality. Instead, I like to come up with ways to make comfort food not so guilty. I’ve tried cauliflower mac and cheese {recipe HERE} and zucchini mac and cheese {recipe HERE} so I figured it was time to try another vegetable: spaghetti squash.

Easy Crockpot Dinner: Pesto Chicken

Crockpot Pesto Chicken Recipe @rachmccarthy7
Happy Tuesday! Gearing up for a crazy week at my 9-5 job so I thought this quick, weeknight dinner would be a good recipe to share this week. I’m always trying to come up with quick and healthy dinners for the work week and as I have mentioned before, the crockpot is my best friend when it comes to this. I made this a few weeks ago for dinner and we just loved it: only four ingredients for a complete meal, quick and easy and the chicken came out super tender. I’m not the biggest fan of chicken, but it’s tolerable for me in the crockpot. This chicken was delicious and I ate every bite! Totally unusual for me, so this weeknight dinner is highly approved!

After reading through the reader surveys {thank you again for filling those out!} there was definitely a trend when it came to food posts: make ahead lunches and quick dinners were the clear winners. I can’t say that I’m too surprised about this because this is the stuff I’m always trying to come up with too! In this spirit, I came up with a Mexican Chicken Burrito Bowl that is not only a make ahead lunch, but also the perfect crockpot dinner!Read More

Easy Crockpot Dinner: Spinach, Mushroom & Tomato Tortellini Soup

Winter and crockpot dinners are like peanut butter and jelly. Although it may not officially be winter, it sure has been cold recently! I’m always trying to come up with crockpot dinners because they are quick and easy with a busy schedule. And this recipe is one of my new favorites! Last weekend, I combined all these ingredients and cannot believe how flavorful this soup was. Nothing you need to prep, just throw it in the crockpot and let it cook. It’s an ideal weeknight dinner!

Cauliflower Mac & Cheese

I’ve never met a mac and cheese I didn’t like. Actually, it’s probably one of my favorite “not so healthy” foods. And I could probably eat it at least a few times a week if it were socially acceptable to do so! It’s been awhile since I made mac and cheese {since it is so unhealthy} but since making THIS Zoodle Mac and Cheese recipe a few months ago, coming up with another healthy alternative has been on my mind…

Zoodle Mac & Cheese

zoodle mac and cheese
Another Tuesday, another zoodle recipe! You may remember this recipe from a few weeks ago, and since then, I just can’t get zoodles off my mind! Not only are zoodles healthier than pasta, they are so much fun to make. {I used this spiralizer & it’s currently on sale!} I am always on a quest to find healthier versions of some of my favorite comfort foods, and this might be my favorite yet! It’s still the same basic cheese sauce recipe, but by swapping out the pasta for zucchini, it’s much more carb friendly. Check out the recipe below!
