Copycat Cafe Rio Sweet Pork

Okay guys, I promise I’m not going to throw yet another stupid 4 ingredient Sweet Pork recipe at you. I mean, don’t get me wrong… 4 ingredient recipes are SO AWESOME, but if you want a legit copycat recipe, a recipe that actually tastes restaurant quality, I can guarantee you that Cafe Rio isn’t in the back of their store popping open a jar of Pace Picante salsa and dumping it over their pork. I know better than anyone that we all need a handful of those recipes in our back p

Thai Meatball Lettuce Wraps

DANG, GINA. These meatball lettuce wraps are no freakin’ joke. They are a ridiculously healthy dinner that comes together in a snap. The longest part is that the meatballs take about 15 minutes to bake in the oven, and while they are baking you can be chopping the fresh veggies like a fruit ninja. Or veggie ninja. Or whatever. I wish I chopped my vegetables and fruits like on fruit ninja. I think people would like cooking more if that was the case. I also think there would be

Pork Carnitas Tacos

It is 3:15 and Baby Girl still hasn’t taken a nap. Send. Help. Seriously, though. If you don’t hear from me in the next 24-48 hours she has probably taken me down in an exhausted fit of rage. She is usually a really sweet happy baby. Until she’s hungry/tired. She gets that from her momma. Speaking of my little sous chef… she wasn’t particularly helpful in the kitchen earlier today. I was baking a cheesecake and needed an ingredient from my pantry. I grabbed it, turned back ar

Teriyaki Pineapple Kebabs

Is it kabob? Or kebab? The world may never really know, I guess. Promise me that you will still like me a little bit after I tell you a little secret. You are all going to gasp in disbelief and utter disgust when I tell you this, but Costco’s already prepared and pre-packaged food is the bomb. Alright, that probably wasn’t a secret, but… GUYS! I’m a food blogger who buys already prepared food. It’s almost shameful. You have to remember that I, like most people these days, w

Parmesan Baked Pork Chops

If you ask me, grilled pork chops are where it’s at, but these make a pretty dang good runner up. I’m not going to lie to you, as a food blogger, this daylight savings springing forward crap is the bee’s knees. As a human, it is the pits. As a human mother, I think I might be dying. Babies absolutely DO NOT care about daylight savings. You wouldn’t think that one hour would make that big of a difference, but oh boy. HOO OOhhh boy… was I wrong, or what? Maybe by the time fa


This recipe. This is a Famous Julie original. Every year for our birthdays my sweet momma gives us the option of choosing what we eat for dinner that night. You know your momma can cook when you are excited to eat at home on your birthday, instead of going to a restaurant. Pretty sure after she whipped these puppies out several years ago every single person in my family requested them for their birthday for years and years. In fact, hey mom? Can you make these for my birthday

Pork Chops

I am fully aware that these are not the size of normal pork chops. That’s why I’m approximately 87.9% sure that these are dinosaur chops. I don’t have any other evidence to suggest that these actually are from dinosaurs besides their sheer size, but that’s good enough for me.
