Almond Poppy Seed Muffin/Strawberry Smoothie/Meatballs/Homemade Pasta

These muffins were easy and great! I felt semi-healthy because of the almonds included. Will for sure be making again!

I love easy recipes like this because they’re a little confidence booster and make me feel like I sort of know what I’m doing.

This strawberry smoothie was also super easy. Only 3 ingredients!

I loved it because I usually make smoothies with ice. I like the texture and the temperature it helps keep the smoothie.

I used frozen fruit and it was a great substitute for ice. It kept the smoothie cold while giving it the texture I love.

I used frozen bananas and strawberries and it made the smoothie turn out suuuuper bubble gum pink!

My meatballs looked a little sad when they came out of the oven. I didn’t have an onion to add to the dish so there was too much liquid put into the meat.

They were still delicious. I also didn’t have bread crumbs so I toasted some slices really quick and tossed them in. It seemed to work out okay!

Omg y’all. My pasta was an interesting experience to make. I will never, I repeat never, make homemade pasta without a pasta maker again.

The pasta was too sticky and I couldn’t keep it from sticking to itself. I had to cut with a pizza cutter. Every piece was uneven. It was just a mess. You can tell in the picture that the noodles are all different sizes. Whoops!

It wasn’t terrible to eat, however, just terrible to make.

Oh-so-easy Beef Burritos

IMG_0146

Another success!

I’m enjoying this small, seemingly insignificant victories.

This recipe was so stinking easy and simple.

I really only had to cook one thing and that was the beef.

Believe it or not……I’ve never eaten beans before……I know, I know, I’m pathetic. But I’m also pathetically picky! I’m determined to become more of an adult now that I’m in a new phase of my life. One of the first steps is to start eating beans. Baby steps!!

The best thing about this recipe is that it is so versatile. You can put anything you want on the burrito! Swap out chicken for beef, add a little rice, add some salsa (like I did), switch out tomatoes for corn, you name it! I will ABSOLUTELY be cooking this again when I need a quick, easy, go-to meal.

My mind is being blown by these amazing Mexican dishes!
