Has anyone else been dealing with cooking the same ol’, same ol’, for dinner?

Because, I could definitely say “amen, to that”… As much as I love exploring the world of food, I tend to find myself stuck in making the same thing for dinner every week. Usually because the recipe is easy prep and delicious..I guess that means it’s a keeper if I can’t stop, right?! I think so.

As we continue to kick off 2015 and enter into Spring (thank the LAWD) I’m so excited to share with you some yummy recipes that I love and are great go-to’s that can hopefully break the bondage of repeat dinners. 😉 And the best part about them is they are easy as pie. And pie isn’t even easy to make so they’re even easier than that!
