Sleek Twisted Bun | Quick and Simple Hair

With as busy as life gets, many of us don’t have a lot of time to dedicate to our hair. However, when I have done my hair, I feel SO much better about myself. It is worth taking the time to do my hair, but the time is always there. That is why I am excited to bring you the second hairstyle in my Quick and Simple Hair series! If you missed the Quick and Simple Hair series kickoff hairstyle, braided cross-over ponytail, definitely check it out as well! Today’s hairstyle is a simple twisted bun that is sleek and is easily my favorite hairstyle to do when my hair is wet.

Instagram Christmas Ornament UNDER $2!

It is probably no surprise to you that I am a huge fan of Instagram. It quickly became my favorite form of social media and is still my very favorite! I love the gorgeous photos people put on their feed. I also enjoy finding new, interesting people to follow as well. I am also a sucker of hashtags when it comes to Instagram. I use them in their proper form so that my photos will be categorized, but I am also a fan of the “tongue in cheek” hashtags that happen within the Instagram culture. That’s why I knew that I needed an Instagram Christmas ornament for my tree this year!

Pulled Back Fishtail Braid

I have naturally curly hair, but wear it straightened out most of the time. When I straighten my hair out, I am basically committing that I am not going to wash my hair for a few days because straightening my entire head everyday is so bad on my hair. It is good for me to have a few hairstyles that I know would look good on my 2nd or 3rd day after straightening my hair, without getting out the curling wand or flat iron again. I love the look of fishtail braids, but don’t necessarily love the look on me when all of my hair is pulled back into one. I decided to have the best of both worlds by keeping my hair down and doing a fishtail braid as well! It takes about five minutes and adds some sass to a boring hair day.

Easy 5 Minute Navajo Taco Recipe

I will admit it. I am a lazy cook. I don’t love cooking. In fact, some days I flat out hate it. Some days, I want to look at my family and say, “Find something to feed yourself” but since I have a two year old who would literally sit down and eat nothing but marshmallows and chocolate milk if I told her that, I have to cook for my family. Sigh… such is the life of a mom, right? Thankfully, I have a few recipes tucked away for such occasions as these (sometimes that is every freaking day). One of those recipes is my 5 minute Navajo Taco recipe. Yep, I said FIVE minute Navajo Taco recipe. It is easy, delicious, and you won’t even have to stop watching Netflix on your iPad while you make it. Please tell me I’m not the only one who does this. I watch Netflix all. day. long. While I am doing household chores of course!

Easy Five Minute Navajo Taco Recipe on

Anyways, on with the Navajo Tacos. When we were first married, I had no idea what to make for our dinners. I asked Dave what some of his favorite meals were and on the top of his list? Navajo Tacos. I had never had a Navajo Taco before in my entire life. The only place I had ever even seen them was at the fair. I did a quick Google search to see what was typically on a Navajo Taco and I created my own version. Now, before we get deep into the recipe, keep in mind that this meal does in fact only take 5 minutes to cook, but you will have to take the dough out of the freezer to thaw earlier on in the day. Make sure to take the dough out in the morning or around lunchtime so it has plenty of time to thaw. If you don’t think about it, it isn’t the end of the world. If you forget to take the dough out of the freezer early enough in the day, you can put the dough in the microwave and microwave it in 30 second increments until the dough is thawed out.

Easy 5 Minute Navajo Taco Recipe
Author: McKenzie at Girl Loves Glam
Serves: 4
  • 1 can of chili
  • 8 frozen dough balls for rolls (I use Rhodes) that have been thawed out
  • 1 tomato, diced
  • Vegetable oil
  • Lettuce for topping
  • Sour cream for topping
  • Shredded cheese for topping
  1. Pour enough vegetable oil to cover the bottom of a pan and put on medium heat.
  2. Open can of chili and heat it up over medium heat.
  3. Once oil has heated up, smash together two of the roll dough balls together and smash them flat. Put it in the oil and let it cook on one side, then turn it over to cook on the other side.
  4. *Be so careful when you are cooking the scones! Hot oil can be very dangerous to work with!*
  5. Lay the fried bread on a paper towel and wipe oil off.
  6. Repeat step 3 and 4 until all 10 of the dough balls are used up and you now have 4 scones for the bottom of your tacos.
  7. Layer chili, cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, and sour cream on the scone and enjoy!

I hope that you love this recipe as much as we do! My husband has even given me the compliment of saying that these Navajo Tacos are just as good as the ones he gets at his grandpa’s restaurant. I guarantee they spend more than 5 minutes on theirs!

Ya know when you are sitting around on Sunday trying to figure out what to make for dinners for the week? Ya know when you ask your husband for his opinion and he just says something generic like, “I like whatever you cook” that leads you nowhere? Well that was me. Sometimes it still is. BUT now that my husband has tried these steak stuffed bell peppers, this is usually his answer when I ask him what he wants for dinner. He loves these! In fact, the entire family loves these! They are delicious, healthy, filling, and easy to make! What more could you ask for?

Healthy Steak Stuffed Bell Pepper Recipe

I love the combination of flavors that happens in these peppers. The steak mixes well with the onions, almonds, and cheese to create something really special.

Steak Stuffed Bell Pepper Recipe
Prep time:
Cook time:
Total time:
Serves: 6
  • 1 lb Steak cut into strips (I buy the kind already cut for stir fry)
  • 3/4 package of sliced almonds (2.25 oz package)
  • 6 Bell Peppers
  • 8 oz sliced provolone cheese, cut into thin strips
  • 1/2 onion finely diced
  • 1 T steak seasoning
  1. Cook meat on medium heat. Once meat is almost fully cooked, add onions to the pan and cook together until meat is fully cooked and onions are soft.
  2. Cut the top of the bell peppers off and hollow them out. Set the tops of the peppers aside for later.
  3. In a bowl, mix almonds, cheese, and steak seasoning together. Add meat and onions to the bowl and mix all together.
  4. Use a spoon to fill the bell peppers with the stuffing mixture. Fill them to the top. Place the tops of the peppers on them like a lid.
  5. Place filled peppers on a baking sheet and bake at 375 degrees for about 10 minutes.
  6. Let the peppers cool down a little, remove the tops of them and enjoy! We usually cut them in half and eat them that way. They are delicious!

Yummy steak stuffed bell peppers that your whole family will love! Healthy, easy, and oh so good! #recipe #food #healthy
