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!

If you try this recipe or any other recipe, I would love to hear how you enjoyed it! Review and comment below and let me know your thoughts. Also share your pictures on instagram #asimplepalate - I love seeing your recipe creations! You can also follow me on PINTEREST, INSTAGRAM, and FACEBOOK.
