Smokey Cajun Shrimp Pasta

My baby brother wanted shrimp and I wanted pasta. I’ve seen Cajun Shrimp Pasta before and figured you can’t go wrong with cajun spices, smoked shrimp, pasta and a cream sauce. ❤️ So, here’s my take. Naturally it has bacon and smoked paprika. 😂  Smokey Cajun Shrimp Pasta Servings: 5 Cooking Time: 45 Minutes Pasta:Continue reading “Smokey Cajun Shrimp Pasta”

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”

Baked Bean Burgers

Day 13 of my 8 week #PantryChallenge I had to run errands on my lunch/dinner so I couldn’t get home to eat. Finally home and whipped up a few quick burgers. As a kid I used my burger to scoop up the beans, but now I just pile it right on top. 😂 Served withContinue reading “Baked Bean Burgers”

Chicken & Broccoli Alfredo Bake

Day 3 of my 8 week #PantryChallenge. Chicken & Broccoli Alfredo Bake with Garlic Bread. I wasn’t allowed to drink milk growing up, so I rarely have it in the fridge. Powdered milk to the rescue!

Jerk Chicken Skewers

I made enough of the spice mixture to fill the mason jar, it was that good! I prepped all the skewers last night, then just threw them on my griddle for lunch.

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”

Seared Pesto T-Bone Steak

I bought these steaks to be my birthday dinner over a month ago, but then the whole covid thing happened so I tucked them away in my freezer. Well, tonight’s the night! 😂 My sense of taste is still a bit wonky, but it was good! ❤️  Seared Pesto T-Bone Steak, Cinnamon Butter Baked SweetContinue reading “Seared Pesto T-Bone Steak”

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. Green Bean & Corn Casserole Smothered Chicken Breasts Servings: 7 Cooking Time:Continue reading “Green Bean & Corn Casserole Smothered Chicken Breasts”

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 go-to potluck recipe! It comes togetherContinue reading “Hawaiian Mac Salad”
