Slow Cooker Chicken Salsa Soup

Slow Cooker Chicken Salsa Soup is a simple and delicious recipe perfect for those busy over scheduled days when you still want to enjoy a home cooked meal!

This Chicken Salsa Soup is about as easy as recipes come.  I love this soup as an alternative to Taco Tuesdays.  My kids like doing Mexican themed food on Tuesdays, but a girl can only take so many tacos!  It's also great because you get it going in the morning and by dinner time it's ready to be served up with almost no fuss.

We like to use a medium heat salsa which gives the soup a great flavor, but no real heat.  You could totally amp it up with a spicier salsa or some chili pepper if you prefer though!

Pumpkin Spice Ice Cream (No Churn)

This easy No Churn Pumpkin Spice Ice Cream recipe is perfect for those of us craving Fall when it's still hot out!

What do you do when the calendar says "Back to School Season" but the weather report says "Heat Index of 105 with Tropical Storm brewing" --- you think I kid, but this is really my life. (Yes, it's okay to feel bad for me).  Rather than mourn the fact that boots and sweater weather is months off (if it shows up at all), I did the next best thing and celebrated the season Florida style with a quick No-Churn Pumpkin Spice Ice Cream.

This Pumpkin Spice Ice Cream is so easy to make and tastes like a creamy, light and fluffy pumpkin pie filling in ice cream form.  I topped mine with a few sprinkles and some caramel magic shell and was in Autumn heaven.  Some folks may suggest you simplify this recipe further by using pre-mixed pumpkin pie spice (and I won't come physically stop you), but I'm saying it now, this combination of spices much better.  So, do what you will.  So long as it's my way.  (See what I did there?)

Crab Po'boy Recipe

The thing I've learned about traveling around the country and eating foods of the same name in a dozen different restaurants, is that pretty much all French onion soups are the same.  And every po'boy is different.  I'm not sure what it is about the po'boy that makes chefs and cooks alike get creative in the kitchen, but it's become a bit of a game when we go somewhere new to see what's passing for a Po'boy in any given town.  

Most recently we visited New Orleans, home of the po'boy, and even there it seems no one could decide on any given formula!  We found shrimp, crab, lobster - even chicken.  Some were fried and drizzled with sauce while others were steamed and drenched.  A few were topped with lettuce and tomato, but the best ones were just piled high with meat.  Today I've put together my favorite components of all the po'boys we've encountered so far and if I do say so myself, it was incredible.

Apologies, apologies, for the lack of pictures!  I know it is so completely unlike me (maybe refreshingly), but we made this Sweet Sriracha Grilled Chicken dish for dinner tonight and it was so delicious that I just had to quickly snap a picture of my plate so I could get it up and to you as soon as possible!  We just couldn't get enough of this chicken.  It's lightly sweet with a hint of spice and a buttery finish.  Yum, yum, yum

Let's be real.  I don't like working out or going to the gym.  It's *totes* torture.  I am always glad when I do go, and am also super excited our local Y just got all new equipment (yay for virtual running scenes!), but that doesn't mean I love sweating it out.  Nope, sure don't.  This is in stark contrast to my husband who considers his afternoon gym trip the highlight of his day.  Who is this man I married?!

But if I must go (and yes, I must), then at least I can add a little silver lining of my own by enjoying a delicious (and healthy!) tropical smoothie after working out.  This Vanilla Mango Tropical Smoothie may only be three ingredients, but it's thick and smooth and sweetly satisfying.  Also: yum.

Are you looking at this beautiful picture of zucchini bread and thinking - what is going on? April doesn't bake...  did you just scan the recipe ingredient list with your jaw aslack wondering where all the cake mix and bisquick is???  Not to worry, the sky isn't falling and I haven't all the sudden taken up baking (although, one day I would love to try!).
