Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Bars:

If you’ve been to my site before then you would know just how much my family loooooves DESSERTS. It’s by far, our favorite thing to make. We all love trying out new recipe, bringing them to family functions and then getting everyone’s opinions on them. If we love it, then we are sure to add […]

Lemon Lime Poke Cake

My tastes buds are changing on me, and I couldn’t be happier about it!! That’s because I’m starting to like more and more things that I never had an interest in when I was younger. I’m realizing I’m missing out, and have been having a blast experimenting and trying new recipes. One of those happens […]

Cilantro Lime Rice

Earlier this week, I shared a recipe for Cafe Rio Shredded Chicken. It obviously comes from one of our favorite restaurants, Cafe Rio, and is such a delicious chicken recipe perfect for burritos, chimichangas and tacos. Today, I’m sharing another recipe from this place (just because we love it so much) for their Cilantro Lime […]

Homemade Salsa

Who doesn’t love Salsa? I grew up on the stuff (remember – I’m half Mexican!) I’ve always loved a great Homemade Salsa recipe and have tried so many different kinds growing up. I’ve also tried many recipes myself and have enjoyed them all but think I finally found the easiest and yummiest way to make […]

Lemon Sheet Cake

Helloooooooooooo! It’s me, Lily again! Did you miss me? I know… it seems like a long time since the last time I posted. 😉 So, how did your Spring break go? Mine was so fun! My friend, Raylee, came into town and we did so many cool things. My favorite thing that we did was […]

Crispy Cheddar Chicken recipe

Do you gather with family for Easter? Now that we are back in Arizona, we do, and we always have a HUGE Easter dinner. We gather with the whole Luna clan and my mom and sisters get together for lunch weeks before to figure out the menu (similar to what they do for Thanksgiving). I […]

Baked Cheddar Eggs & Potatoes

Breakfast is my favorite meal, but we hardly have it for breakfast. Yes, we are usually the oatmeal and cold cereal type of people, but if we had our way we’d have plenty of time in the morning to make a nice, hearty breakfast. Unfortunately, with 5 (almost 6) kids it’s hard and we find […]

Garlic Lemon Double Stuffed Chicken

Hi everyone!! Hope your day is fantastic! If not, I’ve got a great recipe for you that might just change that. I don’t know about you, but chicken is one of those foods that we always have on hand. It can get old though, if you do the same boring recipe over and over. Fortunately, […]

Homemade Fried Rice

Oh man, I love Asian food! I’ve blogged about this love before, and I’m grateful that most of my family loves it as well. Back in Arizona, we would have Asian food ALL. THE. TIME! I loved it! Having said that, I have also blogged before about how my hubby isn’t a huge fan of […]

BEST Snickerdoodles Recipe

I LOVE Snickerdoodles! My family searched for the best Snickerdoodles Recipe for a long time, and we finally found THE ONE. We’ve been using it for as long as I can remember now. I wish my mom could remember where she found it, but she thinks it’s from an old family friend. What’s great about […]

Rice-a-Roni Chicken Salad

This is a recipe my family has been making for a realllly long time. We couldn’t remember where we got the recipe but only know that everyone loves it. For my family, the hubby loves it, I love it and ALL the kiddos love it, which means it’s a keeper!! We especially love to make […]

Homemade Gak

With it being Summer here in AZ, things are getting pretty HOT, and the kids aren’t as excited to play outside, so I thought it would be fun to make Homemade Gak – aka Slime (It’s something I made all the time with my cousin growing up!) The recipe that was most similar to the […]

Summer Corn Salad

Have you ever been invited to a BBQ or get together and were asked to bring a side salad to share?? This has happened to me on countless occasions, and for some reason I always get stumped as to which recipe to bring. I love regular green salads but feel like they get soggy fast, […]

Decorating Ideas for Kids’ Rooms + Girls Room Makeover

I’m so excited to FINALLY be sharing the girls’ room makeover we did. We’ve been in the house since last summer, and although you’d think it was plenty of time to get one of the kids’ bedrooms done, we’ve been so busy with other things. The main other thing was getting the downstairs looking nice, […]

Pasta Carbonara

You can never go wrong with pasta! Am I right?? Pasta recipes are always well received with my family. And in fact, pasta is one of a few dishes that my entire family will eat without any complaints. Because of that, we are always on the look out for delicious pasta dishes. I had seen a […]

Chicken and Dumplings Soup

I may be living under a rock because it wasn’t until just a few months ago that I tried Chicken and Dumplings Soup for the first time. Call me crazy, I know but it’s just one of those recipes my mom never made growing up and one I wasn’t familiar with. To be honest, the […]

Garlic Red Mashed Potatoes

Why do potatoes have to be so stinkin’ delicious?! I admit I’m slightly addicted to the veggie and would love to have them in every recipe, but alas – they’re not that great for you so I try to limit them. Having said that, when making a nice meal for our family (like Sunday dinner […]

Crockpot Meatballs

Who here loves MEATBALLS? My husband’s family has always loved meatballs considering they are from Sweden and Swedish Meatballs are a staple for many of their family get togethers and holidays. I’m not proud to admit this, but I have never tried their meatballs as of yet (we haven’t been back to Arizona for a […]

Grilled Huli Huli Chicken

Have you ever tried Huli Huli Chicken before?? I first tried it years ago at a Hawaiian restaurant not realizing what it was, exactly. I just knew it was a very delicious, juicy chicken that I thought was amazing. Fast forward several years to our time in Houston, Texas and we had some friends from […]

DIY Sprinkler Relay

Who here loves summertime? I DO!! I know things are definitely more crazy having all the kids home from school, but I actually prefer having them home and love spending the time with them. We are always trying to find fun things to do and are so glad that dad is mighty handy. Last summer […]

Crock Pot Green Chile Enchilada Soup

I LOVE SOUPS!!! Seriously, there is something about warm, delicious soup recipes and the holidays that make me so incredibly giddy! I think more than anything soup reminds me of the cooler weather which usually means the holidays are close by and that truly brings a smile to my face. There are just so many […]
