Baked Chicken Parmesan

The husband requested a pasta dish for dinner and Chicken Parm with spaghetti sounded perfect! It’s a great weeknight meal, but the deep fried nature of the dish can be a bit unhealthy. We wanted a lighter option for dinners and this delivered! 3 large Chicken Breasts 2 cups Flour 2 cups Panko Breadcrumbs 1Continue reading “Baked Chicken Parmesan”

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”

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”

Baked Buffalo Chicken Drumsticks

Day 4 of my 8 week #pantrychallenge I really wanted Buffalo Wings, but the rules of the challenge and my wallet say no. I did have some chicken drumsticks in my freezer, though! They turned out crispy and delicious! Half Buffalo Drums, half BBQ. I also made some Onion Rings to go with them. IContinue reading “Baked Buffalo Chicken Drumsticks”

Herb Rubbed Pork Loin

Simple dinner before work! I normally sear the pork before roasting, but didn’t have enough time. I was so happy that the fat rendered perfectly! Served with Garlic Rosemary Mashed Carrots and a Mixed Green Salad. 3 pound Pork Half Loin 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil 2 Tablespoons Italian Herbs 2 teaspoons Salt 1 teaspoon BlackContinue reading “Herb Rubbed Pork Loin”

Bolognese Baked Ziti

Dinner tonight was Baked Ziti using the marinara I made the other day and I ate entirely too much of it. I know traditional baked ziti doesn’t usually have meat or veggies in it, but what can I say, I’m a meat eater! 16 oz. Penne Pasta 6 cups Marinara Sauce 1 lb Ground BeefContinue reading “Bolognese Baked Ziti”

Sloppy Joe Biscuit Cups

These little cuties take the sloppy out of Sloppy Joes! They were a HUGE hit! You can use homemade biscuit dough or the store-bought stuff. I’ve switched to using my Air Fryer because the oven makes my apartment unbearably hot. I’ll include cooking temps for both air frying and baking. Served with homemade BBQ ChipsContinue reading “Sloppy Joe Biscuit Cups”

Quick Marinara Sauce

This sauce is so versatile! It’s amazing in Steak Pizzaoila, Chicken Parmesan, Spaghetti or Baked Ziti! While it may not be a traditional Italian recipe, its still delicious! This is the quick version of my from scratch version that takes upwards of 5 hours to make and uses fresh Roma tomatoes. But weeknights can beContinue reading “Quick Marinara Sauce”

Strawberry Banana Sheet Pancake

All of the pancake-y deliciousness and none of the babysitting! You can substitute the gluten free flours with 3 cups of baking or A/P flour. I, unfortunately, cranked the heat up too high and it cracked. Bummer! I altered the recipe below with the proper baking temperature and time. 1/2 cup White Rice Flour 1/2Continue reading “Strawberry Banana Sheet Pancake”
