Taco Casserole

Taco Salad is one of those recipes that I can remember eating since I was a little girl. I always enjoyed it but never realized why I remembered it so well being a staple dinner in our home. Now that I’m a mom myself and realize just how yummy and easy it is, I know why […]

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. […]

Steak Marinade Recipe

One of the best and nostalgic things about the summer is BBQs!! Who’s with me?! Have you ever gone out for a walk or drive and catch a “whiff” of the heavenly smell of someone barbecuing. That smell makes my mouth water. You see, my family barbecues a lot back home and now we’re not […]

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 […]

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 […]

Cheesy Beef Goulash

Gou-lash: A mixture of many different elements; a hodgepodge. Sometimes, I feel like my brain is Goulash! Do you ever feel that way? Too many things to think about and worry about, and sometimes it can feel like one big hodgepodge! And my life is pretty average compared to most. I guess we all have our […]

Sweet and Sour Meatballs

Hey guys! You know how, as a child, you’re super picky and wont eat anything that’s not “normal,”but as you grow up, your taste buds change and you start liking new things? Well, mine pulled a Peter Pan and decided they never wanted to grow up… except for a FEW things – like meatballs! Did […]

Buffet Meatballs

I’ve mentioned this before, I know, but I love MEATBALLS. For some reason, I didn’t think I liked them, and I’m not sure why I felt this way, but when I finally tried some at a friend’s house for New Years I realized I had been missing out. Meatballs are amazing, and they’re great for […]

Beef & Tomato Macaroni Soup

Good morning blog land! I cannot tell you how excited I was to wake up this morning to a crisp cool feeling in the air. Granted it was still in the high 70’s (ok, lets be honest, low 80’s). But even still, there is always a special feeling as the temperatures start to drop. Its […]

Barbecue Pineapple Meatballs

Don’t miss a thing – Sign up for the Lil’ Luna Newsletter today! You guys know how much I love food, right?! As much I love to eat, there are certain foods I haven’t enjoyed. One of those recipes is for meatballs. Crazy, right?! Fortunately, I’ve grown out of these childish, picky ways and have […]

Beef and Broccoli

Hey friends! I have to say… it brings me such joy to hear when someone successfully makes a recipe from the blog and it becomes a family favorite. We (my mom mostly) works really hard to find good recipes for us to try so that we can help bring something truly simple and yummy for […]

Caprese Kabobs

I can’t remember the first time I had Caprese Salad, but I feel like it was in the last few years. Not sure why it took me so long to try the delicious combo of fresh mozzarella, basil and tomatoes, but it’s definitely a FAVORITE!! Now, I can’t get enough of this awesome flavor combo […]

Slow Cooker Beef Stew

Hey guys! Kellyn here, with another mouth watering Tried and True recipe. Today’s delicious-ness is warm and chunky and super duper simple! This is one of those recipes that we got from the sister of a friend of a friend of a friend years ago (my mom has been making this since we were little). […]

Dr. Pepper Ribs

Hello my fellow Lil Luna obsessers! This is Kellyn, Kristyn’s younger, but taller sister 🙂 Even though Kristyn abandoned us for Texas, we’ve found it very easy to stay connected from Arizona. Food of course has always brought us together and continues to do so as we make and try new recipes to share with […]

Crock Pot Mongolian Beef

Who loves a good Crock Pot recipe?! I DO!! Slow cooker recipes are great any day of the week, but they’re definitely my best friend on Sundays. With church and attempting to take the day to rest, I really rely on those Slow Cooker recipes and love that they usually require little work and are […]

Lunch Kabobs

If you saw Lily’s post on Saturday and today’s post you’d think we’re a little bit on a Kabob kick, and we are! They’re just so fun and simple and a great way to change things up. In fact, I think it’s safe to say that my kids are more willing to eat things when they’re […]

Beef Empanadas

We make Mexican food a TON at our home. It’s something I grew up having coming from a hispanic family, and it’s something we all love. Yes, I know I don’t look like I’m half Mexican, but I am, and I’m so grateful I have learned to make so many Mexican dishes over the years. Of […]

Steak Fajita Pizza

Weeknights can be soooo busy, especially in the summertime  so I’m all about the quick and easy meals. This pizza is a fantastic lunch or dinner option and comes together in less than 30 minutes if you use store-bought pizza crust. I really like the Pillsbury artisan or soft and fluffy variations. And Tyson makes […]

Steak and Tortellini Salad

Is it getting warm where you’re at these days? Fortunately, things haven’t been too bad here in Houston but they are starting to warm up and I’m starting to crave veggies and fruits ALL the time. I love cool foods this time of year and am especially obsessed with salads. They are just so stinking […]

Pot Roast Recipe

Being here in Texas has been a huge adjustment. Back home in Arizona we would take turns going to my parents and to the hubby’s parents EVERY Sunday. And I’m not exaggerating when I say that I can’t remember a Sunday where we stayed at home. We love hanging out at grandma and grandpa’s, the […]
