Cajun Shrimp Jalapeno Poppers

Experimenting with some new Game Day dishes. Bacon Wrapped Cajun Shrimp Jalapeño Poppers. They were so delicious! If you’d like a hotter popper, you can keep the seeds in. For a sweeter option, try it with bell peppers.

Buffalo Ranch Roasted Cauliflower

Hopping back on the Pantry Challenge for a hot minute. I have a bunch of ingredients I need to use up. Buffalo Wings sounded so good, but I didn’t have any on hand. I know Buffalo Cauliflower is a thing, though I’ve never tried it. Well, today’s the day! It was ridiculously good and itContinue reading “Buffalo Ranch Roasted Cauliflower”

Smoky Bacon Chicken & Waffles Sandwich

I’ve never had legitimate Chicken and Waffles before. I tried it once with frozen chicken tenders and pre-mixed waffle batter and wasn’t impressed. Making it from scratch is definitely the way to go! The smoked paprika and maple syrup went really well together! Smoky Bacon Chicken & Waffles Sandwich Servings: 2 Cooking Time: 45 MinutesContinue reading “Smoky Bacon Chicken & Waffles Sandwich”

Copycat Panda Express Cream Cheese Rangoons

I love Panda Express’ Crab Rangoons and they’re so easy to make! Oddly enough, they don’t use crab or imitation crab in their original recipe. Feel free to add some though, it’s delicious! My local Panda Express offers 3 for $2.35. Buying the ingredients myself, I have enough to make 50 Rangoons for just shyContinue reading “Copycat Panda Express Cream Cheese Rangoons”

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”

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”
