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”

Cheesy Chicken Sausage Hash Brown Casserole

Day 24 of my 8 week #PantryChallengeI had a Scatter Brain Jane moment yesterday and totally spaced pulling the Pork Half Loin out of my freezer. YAY!!! (sarcasm heavily implied) Sooo, I quickly thawed some chicken sausages and snagged a box of dehydrated Cheesy Hash Browns from my pantry, both of which I got fromContinue reading “Cheesy Chicken Sausage Hash Brown Casserole”

Fried Cornmeal Mush

Day 8 of the 8 week #PantryChallenge Breakfast for dinner! I wanted something a little lighter because I know I’m going to double in mass tomorrow.

Day 20 of my 8 week #PantryChallenge Tonight’s dinner is the most simplified version I could make of the only thing that my brain and stomach seem to agree on at the moment. Beefy Fritos Burritos!

Smoked Tuscan Chicken Alfredo Pasta

Day 15 of my 8 week #PantryChallenge Smoked Tuscan Chicken Pasta made with powdered milk and garlic bread made from the heels of a Italian loaf I had in my freezer. I made a lot so I could stash a couple of portions in my freezer. It freezes really well and it tastes just asContinue reading “Smoked Tuscan Chicken Alfredo Pasta”

Cheesy Broccoli Cauliflower Bake

I had some interest in my Cheesy Broccoli Cauliflower Bake from yesterday. I normally make this dish with cream of mushroom soup, but I didn’t want to open a can and only use half of it. So I used mayo instead and it was amazing and really easy to make! This is enough for 2Continue reading “Cheesy Broccoli Cauliflower Bake”

Sausage Egg and Bacon Breakfast Melts

So much cheesy goodness! Sausage Egg and Bacon Breakfast Melts, one for dinner tonight and the other for breakfast tomorrow. Honestly, I could only finish half of the sandwich. They were 5” tall before I squished them with another pan! I also made some Cheesy Pepper Hash Browns to go with it. Sausage Egg andContinue reading “Sausage Egg and Bacon Breakfast Melts”

Blueberry Banana Pancakes

I love this recipe. It doesn’t require any eggs and instead uses banana! ❤️ It has way more flavor and it’s a great way to use up old bananas. I serve them with fried eggs, Maple Pepper Hash Browns, sautéed mushrooms, baked bacon and maple sausage patties. Blueberry Banana Pancakes Servings: 4 Cooking Time: 30Continue reading “Blueberry Banana Pancakes”
