We’re Getting Hitched Yall!



I’ve been a little MIA lately, but for good reason. Back in December WE GOT ENGAGED! After almost 3 years of dating & 2 years of living together, we’re finally getting married! We could not be more excited! The date is set for October 12, 2013! Now I know the pictures say October 19, but that’s because we had originally set our date for the 19th and then they accidentally double booked our venue so we had to change the date! It was so stressful that we had to change the date and I was really upset about it, but it turned out to be fine! I only have a few pictures to share with you right now, but I promise I will post a ton of pictures from the wedding!

Beef Enchiladas

These are my special enchiladas. Why are they special? Because they’re not your ordinary beef enchiladas. I add 1 special ingredient that really puts them on the map & it’s so simple I’m really not sure why everybody doesn’t do it.


You Will Need:

-1lb ground beef

-1 can original rotel

-1/2 package velveeta cheese

-1 can red enchilada sauce

-1 package Mexican blend shredded cheese

-1 package large tortillas



*Cheese Dip*

-Cut a block of velveeta cheese in half

-Cut the half of cheese into small cubes

-In a medium bowl mix together cheese cubes and the rotel

-Heat in the microwave until cheese is melted


-Preheat oven to 375

-Brown beef and drain

-Pour half the can of red enchilada sauce into the beef

-Heat tortillas in microwave for 20 seconds

-Into each tortilla spoon in beef mixture, cheese dip, & a sprinkling of shredded cheese

-Roll up the tortillas and place them seam side down in a baking dish

-Cover tortillas with the rest of the red enchilada sauce & shredded cheese

-Bake for 20 minutes.


Mr. Rorie’s Soup

I feel kind of funny even titling this post “Mr. Rorie’s Soup”, but that’s exactly what this stuff is, and it’s good! I didn’t exactly know Mr. Rorie. He was a middle school math teacher that lived behind my Nanny most of my life, but he wasn’t my math teacher, and I just really didn’t know him. This is his recipe and my Nanny made it all the time for us kids. Even now that I’m grown and she’s no longer living, I still make “Mr. Rorie’s soup” and I still call it just that. Basically this is an amped up version of Minestrone soup.

You Will Need:

-1lb ground beef

-1 can original rotel

-1 can ranch style beans

-2 cans minestrone soup

-1-2 cans of water


-Mix all the ingredients together & heat to boiling.

-Reduce heat and simmer at least 20 minutes.


-Mix all ingredients together in a crock pot & heat on low all day!

Crock Pot Roast

I thought pot roast in the crock pot was something that every woman knew how to do, but I was surprised to get a phone call from my recently married bff who needed to know how to make it. Then I got to thinking, maybe everyone’s mom didn’t religiously make roast in the crock pot like mine did? Who would have thought? So here I am to share the extremely simple way to make pot roast in the crock pot. Seriously, simple.


You Will Need:

-1 pot roast

-1 package of McCormick slow cookers savory pot roast seasoning.

-1 package of fresh baby carrots

-Potatoes, cut into cubes. We really like potatoes so I use a whole lot, but however many you feel necessary is fine.

-1 cup water



-Place roast in slow cooker with carrots and potatoes

-In a small bowl mix together the cup of water and McCormick’s seasoning packet

-Pour mixture over roast.

-Heat on HIGH for 4 hours of LOW for 8 hours.
