I’m super into enchilada sauce this week. I don’t really know why. Everything that’s coming to my brain includes enchilada sauce. I usually make my own enchilada sauce but thought I’d try out El Pato enchilada sauce this time. Holy crap, did you notice how many time I just said enchilada sauce. Gag me. Anywho, I like my version better. Just has more flavor to it. Probably because I add half a gallon of spices to mine. So if you don’t want to be lazy like I was, use this recipe to make your own!!

Omg. I love silicone. Ok, I know what you’re thinking and you’re a perve. But for real. You know those silicone muffin liners I’ve talked about a milli times? Well I was cleaning mine the other day along with my never ending amount of dishes, I got distracted and noticed I needed to turn the garbage disposal on. Well, when the water still didn’t run down after a good 30 seconds, I noticed that there were probably 8 muffin liners missing. Ah balls. So I reached my hands down there and what did I find?! Perfect muffin liners, not a scratch on them from the blades. Silicone is so badass.

I got new New Balance Minimus shoes today!! Woot woot!! I officially have 3 pairs. One I’ve almost ran a hole through, but that’s besides the point. I have THREE pairs! I’m so cool. Sadly, I’m not actually. I had to buy a third pair because both of my other pairs smell like dog poo. No, I didn’t run in dog poo. I think I just have the sweatiest feet ever. And wear these shoes all day, every day. Which leads to shoe odor. Which leads to me not getting dates. Oh wait, me talking about it on my blog leads me to not have dates. Awesome.

Speaking of sweat, if you have a sweating issue, you HAVE to try Certain-Dri. I should seriously be their spokesperson because my armpits have been AWESOME ever since using it. And their commercials are terrible. As you’ve seen from my cooking videos, I’m an incredible actress. That’s a lie. But for reals, that stuff is legit. It burns a little. But it’s cool. Feel the burn, reap the benefits. It’s just science.

    This was delish! My one disappointment was a good sized layer was burned on the bottom. I used cast iron and bacon oil. Maybe I should try coconut oil next time?

    Found this recipe on Pinterest and boy am I glad I did. I don’t like eggs much and this completely hid them. I made lots of changes (used pork and swapped a red bell for one of the sweet potatoes; along with the eggs I added cooked dark leafy greens, thinly sliced raw zucchini and green chilies. Topped with Pepper Jack cheese (it’s low carb, which works for me). I was so worried that the eggs would be overcooked, but no, it was fantastic. I’ll definitely make this again.

    This recipe was ah-mazing! Been looking for paleo breakfast options since i’m a little tired of bacon and eggs and ok, this was perfect!!! Had it for breakfast every frickin day last week until it ran out. Huge fan esp of the soft & chewy double choc cookies…made them and now have my friends addicted to them. Appreciate your hard work!

  7. Jenn says:

    Duddeeee… this is awesome. Easily in the Top 3 recipes of yours that I’ve attempted. Mine browned a lot more than your pics and didn’t necessarily set as much bc of the fat and/or sauce, etc but it’s SO good. Hope it tastes just as good tomorrow. Thank you!

      hahaha sometimes the best food is the ugliest 😉

      1. Jenn says:

        Ok, I’m obsessed with this. I actually jumped out of bed this morning b/c I knew I had this waiting for me in the fridge. Is it healthy to want to eat something that bad? 🙂 Thanks again!
