Pinterest never seems to fail me y’all. 

Of course I’ve personally had some pinterest fails, but Tuesday night I totally nailed it.

Around noon I realized I had nothing in the house for dinner,

so of course I went to pinterest to find out if I could make something with the things I already had.

Then I stumbled across the EASIEST recipe ever 

[and later found out that it was freaking delicious as well]

This recipe can make tacos, nachos, really whatever your heart desires,

and mine was really desiring nachos!

For the original recipe click here.

Or just keep reading to see the step by step instructions by yours truly!

Shredded Chick Nachos

What you’ll need:

Frozen Chicken Breasts (I used 3 and we still had plenty left over)

Jar of Salsa (I just used a traditional mild salsa)

1 Can of Rotel

1 packet of taco seasoning

1 can refried beans 

Shredded cheese

Your favorite tortilla chips (we LOVE on the border tortilla chips)

And any other additional toppings you might want!!

What you’ll do:

1. Place frozen chicken breasts, jar of salsa, can of rotel, & taco seasoning in crock pot.

2. Cook on high for about 4-5 hours, then cook on low until chicken looks ready and shreds easily.

3. Heat up your refried beans

4. Then start putting your nachos together!!


I was a little nervous that Kyle wouldn’t love this recipe because he is more of a beef person,

WRONG. We both had 2 full plates and then shared another plate!

These are SO good and SO addicting. 

If you’re on a diet I don’t recommend them because

 it’s kind of impossible to stop yourself from eating them lol

But seriously y’all this is one of the easiest recipes I have ever made.

This would be REALLY great if you have company over to watch a game or something! 

Let me know if you decide to try out the recipe!!

On a completely different note…

I need a little hair help!

As you all can clearly see I’m a HUGE fan of the wand, and my hair is almost always curled.

However, my hair is naturally board straight and I have a hard time getting it to hold

the curl for a long amount of time.

I use Garnier Fructis hair spray every now and then but don’t feel like it does much..

So, do any of you have some magic product you’ve found that really helps to hold your curls?!

I hate most hair sprays because I can’t stand when my hair feels stiff, so keep that in mind!

I am just desperateeeeee for something to help hold me waves/curls longer!

Happy Hump Day Ladies!

Last night I made Baked Potato Soup in the crock pot.

Holy YUM!

I was a little nervous about it but it turned out super good.

Thanks mom for hooking me up with this recipe! <3

It’s honestly the easiest recipe ever.

So here it is…

[how good does that look?]

1 30oz. bag of frozen diced hash browns
1 32 oz box of chicken broth
1 can of cream of chicken soup (10 oz)
1 pkg. cream cheese (8 oz, not fat free)
3 oz bacon bits
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
salt and pepper to taste

Put the potatoes in the crockpot. Add in the chicken broth, cream of chicken soup and half of the bacon bits. Add a pinch of salt and pepper.
Cook on low for 8 hours or until potatoes are tender.
An hour before serving, cut the cream cheese into small cubes. Place the cubes in the crock pot. Mix a few times throughout the hour before serving.
Once the cream cheese is completely mixed in, it’s ready to serve.
Top with cheddar cheese and some additional bacon bits

Y’all, this stuff was GOOD.

I made some garlic bread to go along with it and it was perfect.

Husband approved, puppy approved, and I definitely approved.

Make this tonight for your family and tell me what you think!

The week is almost over!

Have a wonderful Wednesday pretty girls.

xoxo, Monica

If you know me at all…you will know that I HATE cooking.

It literally gives me anxiety, and I have no common sense when it comes to cooking, whatsoever.

I NEED a detailed, specific recipe to go by, 

and even if I follow it step by step something always goes wrong.


But guess what?!

I’m kind of getting the hang of things!

[kind of]

So for all of my fellow clueless cooking ladies, I bring you my favorite go to recipes!
Most of these recipes are from pinterest, but it’s always nice to know
that someone (with little cooking skill) has actually cooked them,
and they turned out great!

First: Chicken Avocado salad

This is the EASIEST thing you will ever “make” in your entire life.

I am an avocado ADDICT. like for real.

I stumbled across this recipe on pinterest but I actually left out some ingredients.

Go to the store and buy yourself one of those delicious rotisserie chickens,

a few avocados and some limes.

The recipe also calls for cilantro and chopped green onions but I didn’t have those

at the house so I skipped them.

Here’s what you do:

Cut up your rotisserie chicken into small pieces until you have about 2 cups full 

then take 2 avocados and slice those babies.

Mix the chicken and avocado together in a bowl and throw some salt on there,

and cut up a lime and squeeze the juice into the bowl.

and voila…SO easy and SO delicious and SO simple!

Kyle and I have eaten it 3 times this past week.

If you love avocados this might become your new favorite meal,

because I crave it every day now…no joke ladies.
