Sweet Chile Sriracha Chicken Drumsticks

I love chicken drumsticks! They’re easy to cook, affordable and make a great canvas for a variety of spices. I may or may not have forgotten that I pulled out 5 lbs a few days ago and needed to cook them tonight. Prep took all of 5 minutes, which was so awesome! Plus, I onlyContinue reading “Sweet Chile Sriracha Chicken Drumsticks”

Not-So Traditional Cottage Pie

I had some leftover beef from last night’s BBQ Bacon Sliders, so some Cottage/Shepherd’s Pie it is! Good thing too because some of my red potatoes were sprouting. Be sure to drain the beef! 😂 It’s a mess if you forget. Not-So Traditional Cottage Pie Servings: 5 Cooking Time: 1 Hour Beef Filling: 2 lbs GroundContinue reading “Not-So Traditional Cottage Pie”

Homemade Hamburger Buns

I had a bunch of requests for the bun recipe from my last night’s sliders. I’m definitely not a baker, but I really like how they turned out. You can use milk instead of powdered milk, I just never have any on hand.  Homemade Hamburger Buns Servings: 4 Cooking Time: 2 hours 1 1/4 cupContinue reading “Homemade Hamburger Buns”

BBQ Bacon Beef Sliders

Finally! The BBQ bacon sliders! 😂 I was going to make them yesterday, but got home from work around midnight and was too exhausted to eat. So today’s the day! I only needed 1 pound of bacon, so naturally I baked 5 pounds. Because…bacon. Duh. 😆 BBQ Bacon Beef Sliders Servings: 4 Cooking Time: 40Continue reading “BBQ Bacon Beef Sliders”

Pesto Sausage Stuffed Acorn Squash

I was all set to make my BBQ Bacon Burgers last night, but I remembered last minute that it was my niece’s 12th birthday. Time to script the flip! We did Pesto Sausage Stuffed Acorn Squash instead because…reasons. So the burgers are dinner tomorrow and I promise to post the hamburger bun recipe. Pesto SausageContinue reading “Pesto Sausage Stuffed Acorn Squash”

Smothered Southwestern Chicken Skillet

I had some leftover corn, homemade black beans and Mexican rice from the other night, so I tossed them all together. 😂 Cooking it all in one skillet means less dishes to clean which is just fine by me. ❤️ It would have been better with cream cheese, but all of mine is frozen. What’sContinue reading “Smothered Southwestern Chicken Skillet”

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”

Teriyaki Chicken & Broccoli

Day 29 of my #PantryChallenge The last 2 days have been pretty ick, so it was broth and sleep for me. But, I finally felt up to cooking! I got winded easily and had to take a seat more than I care to admit, but it got done. Very rustic Teriyaki Chicken & Broccoli withContinue reading “Teriyaki Chicken & Broccoli”
