Olive Garden Chicken Alfredo

Hello everyone! It feels like it's been so long! Marching band season + full time job feels like two full time jobs sometimes and I was not prepared for the lack of free time I was going to have. Marching band is winding down and I actually had a relaxing, calm weekend last weekend, so I think I'll probably be able to start posting more regularly soon. I definitely have taken a different approach where if I am stressed I don't force myself to have to do things. It was not the end of the world if I didn't post. However, I have been blogging for 11 years and still have plenty of recipes to share (and save for me too).

This one is pretty self explanatory - a copycat Olive Garden alfredo. We love a good chicken alfredo in my household and we definitely loved this recipe. What's super wild to me is seeing the island from the old house in these pictures because I am that far behind on sharing recipes LOL.

Cream Cheese Rippled Pumpkin Bread

This recipe reminds me so much of Starbucks Cheesecake Muffins with its delicious cream cheese layer!

Happy September! Although I've waited until September to post any pumpkin recipes - I've had many pumpkin things and also have plenty of pumpkin things to share. I don't know that I'll get around to sharing them all in the next few months, but I'll try. This is a recipe I've actually made a few times but still don't do a great job getting the cream cheese layer lower down. It still turns out so well and so delicious but isn't as pretty as the original :)

Easy Cheesy Sausage & Pesto Ring

This easy dinner is like a savory monkey bread but less work!

This was one of the first foods I made back when we had moved into our current house. Since it was April 2020, we were still having issues finding some foods especially meats. I got lucky and was able to get sausage to make this recipe. It's very reminiscent of monkey bread but there's no cutting up all the biscuits. It's so much less effort and still turns out incredibly.

Easy Taco Salad with Homemade Cilantro Lime Dressing

Taco salad is classic but this one comes with a homemade cilantro lime dressing with tomatillos!

Hello, readers! I apologize for the lack of regular posting lately - life has been wildly busy. Honestly, just throwing in work for me has eaten up any time I had to do anything at a leisurely pace. Add in also volunteering with the high school marching band on Friday nights and I'm straight exhausted every weekend but also trying to catch up on all the things I have not done during the week. I'll continue to keep posting but it is going to be much more sporadic. At the time, I plan to at least get a post up each Monday. If I'm able, I'll post more (keeping to MWF schedule), but no promises!

Now this recipe - taco salad is taco salad. It's kind of a no brainer really. However, this one sets itself apart with the homemade cilantro lime dressing. It really makes the whole dish. I want this dressing on everything forever.

German Chocolate Cookies

Forget cake, these German Chocolate cookies will absolutely win you over!

This recipe is one of my all-time favorite cookie recipes and they did not last long. No one could stop eating them. The coconut pecan frosting is sooo good. Honestly, you could use the premade kind but I feel like this homemade version is not only better tasting but also holds up a bit better.
