Soft Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls

Happy Wednesday! August flew by and I couldn’t be more excited to start a new month. September means we’re getting closer and closer to cooler weather. You may already be there, but we’re still melting here in AZ which means I CANNOT wait for Fall. It’s my favorite season! In my opinion, nothing screams Fall more […]

Chicken Chili

Would you believe it warmed back up again here in Houston this past week?! Pretty sad!! The funny thing is, my mom has told me how cool (and sometimes cold) it’s been back in Arizona the past month. Pretty ironic for me to think since we always sweated a bit on Halloween in Arizona. Looks […]

Pecan Pie Bars

Hi guys! Hope you are all having an awesome day. If not, I’m about to make it awesome with this crazy amazing recipe. You know I’m a freak about chocolate desserts. Well, every once in a while we’ll come across a non chocolaty treat that is just worthy enough to fall under the “Non chocolate, […]

French Bread recipe

I’ve mentioned before that I’m not much of a yeast-user when it comes to bread. Yes, I know it’s easier than you think and you have to actually try using yeast to get better at it, but it’s something I’ve always let me mom handle (lol!) My mom is the expert when it comes to […]

Copycat Panda Express Orange Chicken

Hey guys! I’m back with that second AWESOME recipe I mentioned last week. Our family has always been fans of Panda Express and we recently saw a copycat recipe for their Orange Chicken on Brown Thumb Mama. We knew we had to give it a try since it’s our favorite chicken from the chain. We really […]

7 Layer Bean Dip

Hey guys! Last week I wrote a little bit about our family enchilada recipes. They’re all so yummy. I’m sure Kristyn has told you about how much we love to get together and eat all foods, but Mexican food is our favorite. With those main dishes like Enchiladas and Beef Empanadas, we always have some […]

Fajita Chicken Chili Soup

My family is obsessed with soup. What can I say? The second the weather cools down, we bust out the crock pot and rely on delicious soup recipes to feed us during the cooler months. I think the soups also remind us of the season and the holidays, and we think of them in a […]

BEST Macaroni and Cheese

Hi everyone! Me again with another recipe to add to your favorite Tried and True series 🙂 We’re really revving up the recipes for you, so you have plenty of options come Holiday time. Before I get crazy with all that is involved with the Fall season, the hubs and I are heading out of […]

Beef Stroganoff recipe

There are several recipes that I remember having ALL.THE.TIME as a kid. One of those happens to be this Beef Stroganoff recipe pictured above. It’s a recipe that we had all the time as a child and was changed up depending on the meat my mom used. Sometimes she used chuck roast, hamburger or steak. […]

Homemade Macaroni and Cheese

I can’t remember the first time I had this recipe, but it was years ago and my one sister, Tara, made for one of our Sunday dinners. It quickly became a favorite Homemade Macaroni and Cheese recipe. I don’t know if it’s the white sauce or the chunks of ham, but the recipe is PHENOMENAL […]

Pasta Primavera

Hey everyone! Kellyn here, with another Tried and True Pasta dish that you’re sure to love. You can find several pasta recipes here on Lil Luna and NONE of them disappoint. This one is no different! With so many great, fresh, ingredients, this pasta explodes with flavor. Because we used this as a family meal, […]

Favorite Potato Salad Recipe

My hubby LOVES my mom’s cooking. There is one thing in particular though that he loves above all else…. her famous Potato Salad Recipe. He craves it fortnightly and would always secretly hope she made it as a side any time we had a BBQ. The entire family loves it but everyone knows that you […]

Perfect Pumpkin Bread Recipe

I may have mentioned I wouldn’t be doing any more Pumpkin recipes, but I may have fibbed. I have one more I wanted to try this week, and the next one is from my mom. She has always been known for her bread. It always turns out SOOO good, and so soft, and she usually gets […]

Orange Chicken and Asparagus

Hi there! Hope you are all having a fantastic week. Wednesdays are usually a little nutty over here because my kiddos have a half day. And its the day my 3 year old skips her nap. So, our house can get wild. But its also the night that my husband has church meetings, so I […]

Spinach Puffs

Did everyone have a great Christmas?! I sure hope so! I’m going to be honest… I was a little worried that we wouldn’t enjoy Christmas as much this year being away from family, but we were able to spend it with new and old friends which made it wonderful! Not sure if I’ve mentioned it […]

Strawberry Shortcake Bars

Is your family like us in that we never need an excuse to make dessert? 😉 It might be a little worrisome, but it’s pretty upsetting to the kids if there isn’t a dessert after dinner. And I’m not talking about OUR kids. I’m talking about my parents’ kids… The ADULTS! It’s no secret that we have […]

Magic Potion Drink recipe

This may sound silly, but my kids absolutely LOVE it when I take an extra minute or two to make them special to eat or drink. Even if it’s adding food coloring to the pancake mix – they LOVE it! We do this a ton for holidays and special occasions, but sometimes it’s fun to […]

Cheesy Spinach Artichoke French Bread

Good morning! I hope you have all had a very magical December thus far. As we approach the new year, I know everyone starts thinking of new years resolutions. Did you know that 45% of Americans make goals for the new year? Loosing weight is typically the #1 resolution made. For me, that usually means kicking […]

Cheesy Alfredo Potatoes

Hello my favorite blog readers! It’s Wednesday and that means I’m bringing you an AWESOME tried and true recipe. Today’s yumminess really had me regretting my first 2 years of marriage (not really!). For all of you newly weds or singles, living the high life, do you ever struggle with cooking for 2? My husband […]

Lemon Chicken with Veggies

Happy Wednesday! I have another Tried and True recipe here to start off your morning. I bet you’re wondering what you should do for dinner. Well, wonder no more. This Lemon Chicken with Veggies dish is just begging for you to make it. It seems like there are millions of different ways to make chicken. […]

Creamy Garlic Penne Pasta

I LOVE pasta! I mean, who doesn’t?! It can be made into so many different recipes – from salads to main courses, and is always delicious!! I mean, yes, they have carbs, but this girl needs them in her life because I cook with them ALL the time. In fact, now that I think about […]

Salsa Verde + Gift Idea

I LOVE Salsa!! Ever since I moved to Texas I haven’t been able to find a Salsa I really like (insert sad face here). Back home we would always get El Sol Salsa found at Sam’s Club, which is made by some family friends. We LOVE it!! Since I haven’t been able to find any […]

Cream Cheese and Parmesan Asparagus

I don’t know about you but I’m always on the hunt for easy and delicious side dishes. I’m always leaning towards potatoes or corn because that is what I have on hand, but when Asparagus is on sale I am always sure to stock up. Typically I would just lightly drizzle some olive oil and […]

Greek Pasta Salad

Guys, where did February go??? I know its two/three days shorter than the other months, but it seriously FLEW by! My daughter is one of the lucky ones born on leap day. We always have a hard time deciding when to celebrate her birthday. I say March 1st, because that is the day it would […]
