Simple Dinner Recipes for March

It’s been crockpot central in my new apartment! Between the ribs we loved last month and the recipes I have to share this month, it seems like that’s all we’ve been doing! 

But seriously, crock pot meals are just so simple! Most take 15 minutes or less to prep and then they cook while you work, do your errands, clean the house, etc. I love it! 

I have two recipes to share this month that were very easy but with delicious results. Check them out and let me know what you think!

Easy Crockpot Carnitas – Or as my boyfriend calls them “real tacos”. (Apparently to him, ground beef doesn’t constitute real tacos. Pshaw). But I will say these were so yummy! A nice citrus flavor that’s filling and refreshing. There were no good avocados at the store so we swapped it out for corn and shredded cheese. I’d also suggest squeezing a little extra lime juice when assembling your taco – a great kick of flavor! 

Cider Soaked Pulled Chicken – We’ve been on a cider kick lately so I was really excited when I found a recipe that incorporates the delicious crisp flavor. We used a more watery BBQ sauce than recommended so ours came out a little soggy, but we’re excited to try it again with a little less sauce! 

What recipes have you all tried lately? I’ll be sharing one of my own soon! 🙂 


Favorite Recipe Sites

As I mentioned earlier this week, we’ve been cooking at home a lot lately. One thing I’ve been having lots of fun doing is looking up new and interesting recipes to try. I’m not the bravest when it comes to trying new things, but there are so many free recipes available that there’s something for everyone!

Here are a few of my favorites:


AllRecipes has lots of great ideas, most of which have been reviewed by users. The comments are a great way to find twists and changes to the recipes that might make it more appealing to you.

Cooking Light has long been a favorite of my mom’s. While they do have a magazine you can purchase, there are also lots of free recipes on their site.

Taste of Home is a user based website, which is great because the recipes come from people like you and me. None of that fancy chef talk you don’t understand!

Pinterest is a favorite of mine, as always. I love the ease of searching the boards and the visuals are always great. Plus they have suggestions to fine tune your search and help you find exactly what you’re looking for!

What are some of your favorite recipe sites? There are so many out there. I can’t wait to try more!
