I have a confession: I kind of cheated. I did Crock Pot Wednesday on Monday this week because I was just too freakin’ pooped already. This week has been a doozie trying to catch-up on laundry, dishes, cooking, shopping, etc. from being gone last week. Side note – how can being gone ONE week feel

These. Burgers. Will. Blow. Your. Mind. First off… I mean how friggin’ cute can a burger get I ask you? One reason they’re one of my faves is because you can do basically everything minus the grilling ahead of time. The red onions can be made up to a week ahead [and go great with

Zesty Coconut Rice

The ChewΒ did it again! This coconut rice was immediately a must-try the second I saw Michael Symon whip it together. I’ve tried a few other recipes for this side, but they ended up wayyyyyy too coconuty or were way too difficult. This one is PERFECT! The lime zest takes this over.the.edge y’all. It’s amazing what
