Loaded Turkey & Veggie Chili

A little bit of a cheat since beans really aren’t part of my diet plan, but I need them in my chili. I made some cheese crisps to use as chips and topped the chili with sour cream, cheese and avocado. So delicious! 2 lbs Ground Turkey 1 cup Zucchini; cored & chopped ½ cupContinue reading “Loaded Turkey & Veggie Chili”

I also made a light salad to go with it.   1 lb Italian Sausage Links 2 cup Bell Pepper; sliced 2Continue reading “Sausage & Pepper Bake”

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’s a girlContinue reading “Smothered Southwestern Chicken Skillet”

Hamburger Sausage & Veggie Soup

Day 26 of my Pantry Challenge. ❤️  I told myself to only make 4 servings. But if I taste something and it needs another flavor I toss it in. Next thing I know, the soup’s doubled. Hamburger Sausage & Veggie Soup anyone?! I didn’t have any beef broth, so I used the stock from theContinue reading “Hamburger Sausage & Veggie Soup”

Cheesy Chicken Sausage Hash Brown Casserole

Day 24 of my 8 week #PantryChallenge I had a Scatter Brain Jane moment yesterday and totally spaced pulling the Pork Half Loin out of my freezer. YAY!!!

I’m glad I had everything I needed in my fridge and pantry. 2 large Chicken Breasts; sliced 1 teaspoon Sesame Oil 1 large Mango; cubed 2 large Oranges; juiced and zested 1 Green Onion;Continue reading “Orange Mango Chicken”

Classic Beef Stroganoff

My goodness! I totally forgot how much I love Beef Stroganoff! My apartment smells divine! I opted for a more traditional recipe this time. Served with some Beef Pirozhkis. As always, it’s not traditional because I love tinkering with recipes too much. 3 lb Chuck Roast; cubed 1/4 cup Dijon Mustard 1/4 cup Vinegar 2 Tablespoons WorcestershireContinue reading “Classic Beef Stroganoff”
