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.

Air Fried Greek Home Fries

The Greek Home Fries I made with yesterday’s Egg Salad Sandwiches. They’re so easy and delicious and go great with Tzatziki Sauce!

Hawaiian Mac Salad

When I was vacationing with my family in Maui years back everything was served with this amazing Macaroni Salad, locally referred to simply as Mac Salad. It varies from its mainland cousin with its lack of mustard and minimal vinegar. It’s a simple, and amazing recipe that is my new go-to potluck recipe! It comesContinue reading “Hawaiian Mac Salad”

Traditional Gyros

I spent the day processing cookbook orders and the time got away from me. Dinner is finally served! I decided to use the flatbread I made yesterday for Gyros. I highly recommend making your Tzatziki sauce! It makes all the difference. There were 4, but one didn’t make it past the stove. Traditional Gyros Servings:Continue reading “Traditional Gyros”

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”

Crispy Grilled Elk Tacos

These delicious little tacos really hit the spot! I normally double up my tortillas, but they held up brilliantly when frying and didn’t need any extra structural support. 😂 The marinade is key to perfectly tender elk meat, as this was an old bull and his meat was a bit on the tough side. CrispyContinue reading “Crispy Grilled Elk Tacos”

Bloomin’ Onion Deviled Eggs

I decided to go mad scientist and create Bloomin’ Onion Deviled Eggs. They were delicious and have a nice kick!

Sweet Heat Cornbread Muffins

I love making this cornbread recipe. The combination of sweet and heat can’t be beat! It’s slightly cake-like on the inside with a wonderfully crunchy crust. If you aren’t a fan of hot foods, substituting the jalapeños for bell peppers is a great option. They go great with the honey! I love serving them warmContinue reading “Sweet Heat Cornbread Muffins”
