Cheesy Beef & Broccoli Shells

Day 38 of my #PantryChallenge Quick and easy dinner tonight. Cheesy Beef & Broccoli Shells! It would have been leagues better if I’d had whole milk and fresh broccoli on hand, but what can ya do. It’s really easy, inexpensive and kids love it! Definitely one of my favorite weeknight meals. Cheesy Beef & BroccoliContinue reading “Cheesy Beef & Broccoli Shells”

Black Bean & Chicken Enchiladas

Day 37 of my #PantryChallenge I spent an amazing night with my family yesterday and cooked dinner for them. I brought over most of it from my pantry, but my mom had all the fresh vegetables, cheese (that I forgot at home) and sour cream on hand, so I’m counting it. 😂 My dad saidContinue reading “Black Bean & Chicken Enchiladas”

Cheesy Chicken Sausage Hash Brown Casserole

Day 24 of my 8 week #PantryChallengeI had a Scatter Brain Jane moment yesterday and totally spaced pulling the Pork Half Loin out of my freezer. YAY!!! (sarcasm heavily implied) Sooo, I quickly thawed some chicken sausages and snagged a box of dehydrated Cheesy Hash Browns from my pantry, both of which I got fromContinue reading “Cheesy Chicken Sausage Hash Brown Casserole”

Smoked Tuscan Chicken Alfredo Pasta

Day 15 of my 8 week #PantryChallenge Smoked Tuscan Chicken Pasta made with powdered milk and garlic bread made from the heels of a Italian loaf I had in my freezer. I made a lot so I could stash a couple of portions in my freezer. It freezes really well and it tastes just asContinue reading “Smoked Tuscan Chicken Alfredo Pasta”

Cheesy Broccoli Cauliflower Bake

I had some interest in my Cheesy Broccoli Cauliflower Bake from yesterday. I normally make this dish with cream of mushroom soup, but I didn’t want to open a can and only use half of it. So I used mayo instead and it was amazing and really easy to make! This is enough for 2Continue reading “Cheesy Broccoli Cauliflower Bake”

Bacon Burger Tater Tot Casserole

I made way too much Bacon Cheeseburger Soup last night. So I topped it with tater tots and more cheese. ❤️ Voila, Bacon Burger Tater Tot Casserole. The leftovers freeze pretty well so I’ll have 5 or 6 meals ready to go. 💕   Bacon Burger Tater Tot Casserole Servings: 6 Cooking Time: 1 Hour 3Continue reading “Bacon Burger Tater Tot Casserole”

Green Bean & Corn Casserole Smothered Chicken Breasts

Tightened the belt for dinner tonight. I got a deal on chicken breasts and I was craving my Green Bean and Corn Casserole. Why not bake them together? At $1 per plate (including the rice and Chipotle Roasted Broccoli), I’m really not complaining. Green Bean & Corn Casserole Smothered Chicken Breasts Servings: 7 Cooking Time:Continue reading “Green Bean & Corn Casserole Smothered Chicken Breasts”

Baked Pesto Caprese Chicken

Amidst the doom and gloom, there’s a glimmer of happiness! Look what finally arrived! In celebration, I made one of my favorite dishes from my new book. I didn’t have any fresh basil, so I used homemade Pesto instead. Served with Fondant Potatoes, Garlic Herb Flatbread and a light salad! Pretty sure if I ateContinue reading “Baked Pesto Caprese Chicken”

Cauliflower & Broccoli Cheddar Bake

I don’t normally doctor up my broccoli and cauliflower. I grew up eating it steamed or raw with Ranch Dressing, but I was craving something creamy. Unfortunately I was out of milk so I had to “cheat”. A can of Cream of Mushroom Soup did the trick nicely and it’s a new favorite of mine!Continue reading “Cauliflower & Broccoli Cheddar Bake”

Loaded Mashed Potato Bake

I decided to try something new as a side dish this Labor Day. I was in the middle of baking a Strawberry Rhubarb pie when the idea to create a bacon lattice top for a mashed potato dish would be not only delicious, but also a bit of a show stopper! It really didn’t disappoint.Continue reading “Loaded Mashed Potato Bake”
