Don’t Miss the Instant Pot

I’m not a Black Friday shopper. I prefer to avoid chaos in every circumstance.

I’ll make an exception for online shopping because I can to that while I sip coffee in my pajamas.

I’m done with my shopping for today but I wanted to share a few deals I ran across.

Instant Pot

I can’t recommend the Instant Pot enough. We use it multiple times per week. It counters the chaos in our lives by helping us create healthy meals with very little time and effort.


Right now it’s on Amazon for $78.50! This is the same one I have and I love it! They will probably run out so buy it now! If you aren’t sure check out my post 10 Reasons to Buy an Instant Pot!

I hope you got it because that deal is done! They now have the Smart bluetooth-enabled version is a deal of the day for about 7 more hours. I don’t have this version but it is the newest, fanciest version out and it is a great price.


Go ahead and a Blendtec blender to your Christmas list! They have a wide range of prices, I highly recommend the refurbished. They come with an excellent warranty and are jut over $200. They have a Black Friday Coupon Code listed on their site.

My friends are buying tablets like crazy because they have a lot of Black Friday Deals.

I hope you had a great Thanksgiving!

Enjoy your weekend!

5 Tips to Save Thanksgiving and Your Sanity

Are you stressed out about Thanksgiving? I’m not. Don’t hate me but it’s Monday, there is plenty of time left to prepare and ROCK Thanksgiving!

It’s all about preparation. I’m a planning guru, especially when it comes to events. Thanksgiving is an event.

That means I won’t be cooking a lot of dinners this week so I can reserve plenty of room in the fridge for Thanksgiving food.

5 Tips to Save Thanksgiving and your sanity

I’m skipping the meal plan, instead giving you some Thanksgiving tips so you can stop stressing too. [Read more…]

Chickpea Nuggets

I love dipping foods. Whether it’s apples in SoyNut Butter or carrots in hummus I’m a dipper. One of my tips to get kids to eat healthier is to provide a dip.

These Chickpea Nuggets are so good you won’t even need a dip but I’m partial to my Barbecue Sauce.

Chickpea Nuggets are vegan, gluten-free, and a fun kid food. They are easy to make and delicious.

You may be thinking, Holly, we are plant-based or we have food allergies, we aren’t going near mystery nuggets. Let me stop you right there and share that these nuggets are healthy, allergy-friendly and my family LOVED them. I should probably also mention that they were easy.  [Read more…]

Enchilada Casserole

Have you ever had the privilege of eating homemade enchiladas?

My husband taught me how to make them just after we were married. They taste a lot different than what you get in most Mexican restaurants and take a long time to make, especially when you make the enchilada sauce (we just call it chili) from scratch.

This recipe isn’t exactly from scratch. It’s more of a cheater vegan enchilada casserole BUT it is soooo good you won’t even care.

Sometimes a girl just needs some enchiladas! Unfortunately I don’t have hours to make one meal. Our old family recipe was extremely unhealthy, the healthiest part was the corn tortilla before you dip it in oil. I know I shutter at the thought.

Enchilada Casserole is a fast, easy and healthier version of regular enchiladas. This recipe is vegan (plant-based), gluten-free dairy-free and made from pantry staples for a delicious family friendly meal.

This recipe is easy, pretty fast, healthy and most of all delicious.

I had to come up with a veggie enchilada recipe but I’m old-school Tex-Mex and can’t handle veggies like broccoli and carrots in my enchiladas so don’t even try. I wanted to cut down on the time it takes to make them too so this recipe layers the ingredients instead of rolling individual enchiladas.

This recipe uses pantry items and you can get fancy with the Faux Cheese Sauce if you want to go that route but it is wonderful without it.

Enchilada Casserole


  • 1 pkg soft corn tortillas
  • 2 cans refried beans (or 3 cups of your own, try this recipe)
  • 1 can of diced tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup thinly diced, fresh onions
  • 1 cup corn (canned or freezer)
  • jarred jalapenos to taste
  • 1 can red enchilada sauce (15 oz can or bigger)
  • 1/4 cup Southern Homestyle Tortilla Crumbs (or Corn Crumbs)
  • Double recipe of Faux Cheese Sauce if you want a cheesy top.


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Spread about an ounce of enchilada sauce in the bottom of a 9×13 inch casserole dish.
  3. Cover the sauce with soft corn tortillas. Tear tortillas into smaller pieces when necessary.
  4. Gently spread cooked/canned beans over tortillas.
  5. Top with half of the tomatoes, half the corn, half the onions and jalapenos if desired.
  6. Cover with 6 ounces (about half) the remaining enchilada sauce.
  7. Repeat steps 2 through 6. TIP: Cover the soft corn tortillas in beans before you lay them in the casserole dish.
  8. Add the tortilla crumbs if you aren’t making the cheese sauce. If you are wait until later. Bake the casserole for 20 minutes.
  9. If making the cheese sauce follow the recipe but double it. Once done, pour it over the casserole and sprinkle tortilla crumbs on top. Then bake for 10 more minutes.
  10. Allow to cool slightly before serving.

This recipe is perfect for your vegan or gluten-free friends! It is potluck worthy and you can easily adapt it based on your preferences. So if you like broccoli and carrots in your enchiladas go ahead, unless you are bringing me some. You’ll notice on the process photos that you can adapt for preferences. I use corn on half and jalapenos on the other half to keep my family happy.

Enchilada Casserole that is plant-based and gluten-free. Easy to make with mostly pantry staples and completely healthy. No meat, no dairy, no gluten!

The Tortilla Crumbs are gluten-free and give it an extra little crunch on top. I didn’t want to try to top it with corn tortillas because they would have become dried out and hard, you know this if you’ve ever skimped on enchilada sauce when making homemade enchiladas.

The Tortilla Crumbs totally solve that problem with a light dusting of Mexican flavor. You can find Tortilla Crumbs in grocery stores and online (or on Amazon).
