No ice cream cream maker? No problem. You don’t even need one to make some of the most amazing ice cream you’ve tasted! No-churn ice cream is made using just 5 easy to find ingredients and 10 minutes of prep. The ice cream is rich and creamy, and while the texture is slightly different than regular ice cream, it’s a great way to make a simple frozen dessert. In this post you’ll find my top 15 no-churn ice cream recipes, everything from classic vanilla to strawberry rhubarb, and a bonus recipe for Raspberry Chip! How to Make No-Churn Ice Cream I dedicated a whole chapter in my first cookbook to no-churn ice cream recipes because I love the ease and versatility of this method so much. No-churn ice cream is simply made by folding whipped cream into condensed milk, along with your favorite flavors or mix-in’s, then spreading in a pan and freezing. Besides heavy cream and sweetened condensed milk, you’ll add a bit of salt to cut the sweetness. And I like to add a small amount of cream cheese for it’s tang, to balance the flavors, and keep the ice cream smooth when it’s frozen. Using No-Churn Ice […]

A Couple Cooks – Recipes worth repeating.

This burrito bowl recipe is a lightning fast easy dinner idea! Add veggies and drizzle with creamy chipotle ranch dressing.

Burrito bowl recipe

Here’s a quick dinner idea that’s always satisfying and works for nearly every diet. That’s right, the good old Burrito Bowl! We can thank Chipotle for its widespread popularity, but it really is a killer idea. Throw rice, veggies, and burrito fillings in a bowl and call it meal! Here’s the thing: a good burrito bowl can actually take a while to make at home with all the components. Want a burrito bowl that’s lightening fast to make? We’ve got you. In fact, you can make this one 15 minutes (we timed ourselves).

How to make a burrito bowl… fast!

The longest lead time item in a burrito bowl is the rice. If you want to make a speedy bowl, you’ve got to short cut the rice cook time. There are a few options:

  • Fastest: Use packaged pre-cooked rice! There are a few brands on the market (we used Seeds of Change)
  • Fast: Cook the rice the night before, then reheat it with a splash of water on the stovetop
  • Medium speed: Cook white rice in 20 minutes on the stovetop, or even better make Cilantro Lime Rice
  • Longest: Cook brown rice in 45 minutes on the stovetop (consider doing this in advance)
Black bean and corn salad

Make shortcut black bean salad

The other key to this quick burrito bowl? Our shortcut Black Bean and Corn Salad! We discovered this trick and have been using it ever since. All you have to do is mix together 3 ingredients, and you’ve got a salad that tastes like you spend hours chopping. The keys? Mix together:

  • 1 can black beans
  • 1 can corn
  • 1 cup purchased pico de gallo: you’ll find this packaged in the refrigerated section at your local grocery! It may be labeled pico de gallo or fresh salsa. It’s a total lifesaver and adds a tangy zing to the entire salad.

You can also use the Black Bean and Corn Salad as a shortcut black bean salsa dip for chips, or try it in our Shrimp Bowls.

Whip up the chipotle ranch dressing

When we timed ourselves making this burrito bowl, we used pre-cooked packaged rice for maximum speed. So we had plenty of time to whip up this Chipotle Ranch Dressing! It’s so delicious and easy to put together. Here are the magic ingredients:

  • Yogurt plus mayonnaise: Using yogurt with the mayo helps cut down calories but maintains some of the richness of standard ranch dressing.
  • Adobo sauce: You’ll use adobo sauce from a can of chipotle chilis. It’s typically easy to find this ingredient next to the Mexican ingredients in your grocery. Only use the sauce from the can.

Want a milder version of this sauce, especially for kids? Just use half the adobo sauce (1 tablespoon). It won’t be spicy, but it will still have great smoky flavor!

Burrito bowl recipe variations

The best part about a burrito bowl, in our opinion? You can customize it to any diet. In fact, you can make these bowls for a crowd and provide options for everyone. It’s absolutely our go-to for large gatherings! As is, this burrito bowl is vegetarian and gluten free. Here’s how to modify it for other diets:

Other add ins!

Of course, you can also make this burrito bowl a whole lot fancier. We designed it as a quick weeknight meal. But if you’re hosting a dinner party, here are ways to step it up:

11 Ways to Use Peel & Stick Wallpaper—Not Just on the Walls

Wallpapering nearly broke up my parents’ marriage. Yes, that’s right. Applying wallpaper to their home almost broke up a two-kid, three-home, 20-year marriage, because that’s how miserable a task it is. Peel and stick, though? Much less life or death—or, in this case, marriage-ending... What’s even better? You’re not wedded (pardon the pun) to it—it can be endlessly changed around.

Of course, we’ve all likely seen several rental makeovers put peel & stick wallpaper to good use—bright pops of pattern in small bathrooms, half-papered walls in bedrooms, kitchens rendered totally unrecognizable—but given that peel and stick wallpaper is, in essence, just giant pieces of sticker… there are lots more uses to be found.

Today we’re going over all the goods!

my favorite house salads and dressings!

For years, I’ve had my signature “house” salad here on the blog. While I often proclaim how bored I get with recipes, I love the idea of being known for a signature dish (so many of my family members are, and I’m sure you have the same!) and especially a GOOD salad. One that technically goes with everything, if that is possible.

I adore the idea of a great signature salad for two reasons: first, it’s so easy to throw together once you have the recipe down. Make it a salad where the ingredients are almost always something you have on hand. And second, it’s been a great way for us to easily incorporate vegetables on weeknights, even if we have a certain dish for dinner where they may not be prominent. 

my favorite house salads and dressings!

The first house salad I ever shared was this How Sweet Eats House Salad over five years ago. It is definitely the most made salad in our house. You guys LOVE it. It’s a classic and just works every time. I even have a version of it in Everyday Dinners.

But! 

I do have to say that I feel like it runs ever-so-slightly italian-ish. You know what I mean? Just in terms of cuisine and the meals it is often served before. And for that reason, I have a few other salads that I use as my “signature” depending on the season. I realize that doesn’t make much sense because a signature house salad should just be ONE SALAD. But oh well. Here we are! 

And of course, I mainly share different house salads so YOU can find one that you love and enjoy. Let’s get to the good stuff!

For the classic of all classics:

Go with my How Sweet Eats House Salad with Apple Cider Vinaigrette

This is my OG house salad, my most-made, most-requested, and one I will throw together a few times a week. Or even more! Have you ever had a really great salad with a slice of pizza? That is what this salad is for me. It’s just a great, crisp, refreshing salad that has everything: vegetables, some crunch, cheese and a classic yet perfect dressing made with apple cider vinegar. We eat this ALL THE TIME. It’s my forever house salad. 

For an everyday dinner salad:

Go with my Kale Caesar Crunch Salad.

This salad goes with basically anything and everything. I love it because it’s so easy, there aren’t any add-ins except for parm and the crunchy breadcrumbs. It also LASTS – this is the one salad where you can save a little the next day for lunch because kale is so hearty and chewy. The dressing can be made ahead of time (as can all of these!) and stored in the fridge, and it also makes a delicious dip or spread if needed. 

For a warm weather salad that pleases everyone:

Go with my Blueberry Summer Salad with Creamy Balsamic.

This salad is so surprisingly delicious. It’s refreshing and really great for summer. Has the classic crunch from the almonds, the fruity blueberries, crisp cucumbers and a rather traditional dressing. It’s fabulous for spring and summer. 

I love it for a BBQ-esque cookout or even a big sunday dinner spread when it’s really hot out. Basically, I throw this together all summer long because it can easily be a quick lunch too. Or just a light dinner with some grilled sourdough.  (more…)
