TOP 5 y'all. This is going down as one of the best things I've ever made! So simple and versatile! For the barbacoa recipe click here. You'll just need to bake your potatoes at 375 for 50 minutes. I added a few Idaho potatoes for the kiddos which is a great idea for those who aren't sweet potato fans! Also, you can cook this in a slow cooker or an instant pot by simply using recommended times! Vegan? Vegetarian? Use jackfruit instead of beef. Top with as many toppings that will fit!!! Avocados, onions, jalapeno, sour cream/greek yogurt, shredded cheese, pepper flakes... just a few of my favorites. 

Roasted Chicken and Veggie Sheet Pan Dinner

If you are looking for a quick healthy dinner that requires verrrry little clean up, this ones for you! This is great for meal prep or serving to a family of 4! If you have a big family, you can easily double the recipe by making two pans. This one will definitely be on repeat at the Gravois house. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do...

White Bean Chicken & Kale Soup

This soup was inspired by one of my favorite bloggers recent dinner posts, @LivingwithLandyn. She's fun, down to earth and always has some really great ideas for healthy dinners. It's also very similar to the white chicken chili soup that I love SO much that we eat it at least once a month! 

We have been incredibly busy this month. We recently sold our home in Baton Rouge (Thank GOODNESS) and we spent this past weekend getting our stuff from the house into storage in Birmingham. One step closer to getting into a new house here in the Ham! Please be praying that we find the perfect (imperfect is fine too...) house. This feels like such a refreshing new chapter in our lives. I could not be more thankful to be back in our favorite city. 

Back to the soup! I know, I know... you are probably thinking "WHY SOUP IN THIS HEAT!?" Well, because I love soup and I am preeeetty sure you'll understand after you give this one a shot. Now the secret ingredient is the GREEN DRAGON HOT SAUCE from Trader Joe's. If you do not have access to a Trader Joe's, no problem, I've linked the sauce on my SHOP tab!! I keep a lot of links to my most recently used things over there so don't forget to check that out.

Slow Cooker Barbacoa Tacos

All I want to do is eat tacos with YOU... (or without you, I'm just here for the tacos!)

The first time I ever had barbacoa tacos I thought they were the worst things ever. They were bland and topped with RAW onions!!! The seven year old inside of me was already gagging. I remember ordering bean burritos with NO onions from Taco Bell as a kid and every now and then I would get a crunchy onion in there and GAG there went everything. Lunch over. But yeah back to the good stuff. This recipe is quite honestly one of the best things I have ever made. Seriously, red onions and all! 

Real quick I want to add that I am SO excited to finally get to share all of my recipes with you guys. This website will grow with time, I have big plans for it! I am so passionate about helping people find balance and hopefully creating a community where you can be encouraged. 

If you notice, there is a shop tab above. That tab will not only show you a picture of a lot of the most recent ingredients and kitchen tools I use but they are all links so with one click you can purchase them if you need to! If there is ANYTHING I can help you with please leave a comment below or message me on my instagram! 

Now for the recipe...
