Grilled Chicken with Strawberry Salad

This salad is perfect for summertime!

Hello, fellow internet people. So apparently the big thing now that everyone is noticing (and hating) is that food bloggers like to write stories in their posts. Fun fact: this is for Search Engine Optimization reasons. Also fun fact: I am awful at it. Sometimes I have trouble even describing the food with words other than variations of good (thanks, Thesaurus) or delicious. I say cut the food bloggers some slack with the stories and just scroll for the recipe. However, I think we can all agree that in-post ads AND pop-ups for subscribing to mailing lists/social media page follows are HORRIBLE.'s today's recipe: SALAD! :)

Mississippi Pot Roast Cheesesteaks

Cheesesteaks have never tasted so good!

Mississippi Pot Roast is a recipe that has definitely secured its place in a little viral recipe history. It is everywhere I go and there is absolutely a reason for that: it is THE best pot roast ever. We refer to it as "THE pot roast" now because it's pretty much the only one I make. I saw someone post on reddit that they had turned THE pot roast into cheesesteaks and decided that we definitely had to do that too. It's a wonderful way to enjoy the buttery, spicy roast!

Menu Plan Monday - May 20, 2019

Menu Plan Monday for May 20, 2019 // What I'm making this week #menuplanmonday #mealplan

This week I'm going to try and duplicate Marion's Pizza again. It's sausage, banana peppers, and bacon on a thinner crust. If you're from the Dayton, OH area, you may have had it before. I spent nearly 12 years hearing about it from my husband and his family before getting my own and it was hyped for a reason! I don't have a link for the coffee cake because the website is down for maintenance. I will update as soon as I can.

Monday - Cajun Chicken Alfredo
Tuesday - Loaded Nachos
Wednesday - Omelets // One Pot White Chicken Lasagna Soup
Thursday - Perfect Steak with Herbed Butter
Friday - Copycat Marion's Pizza
Weekend - Creamy Spinach Artichoke Chicken // Raspberry Cream Cheese Coffee Cake // Strawberry Lemon Snack Cake

What are you having for dinner this week?
Feel free to leave a link to the recipe in the comments!

Sheet Pan Parmesan Pesto Chicken & Vegetables

One bowl and one pan bring a full dinner with loads of veggies and wonderful pesto flavor to the table in a little over 30 minutes.

Sheet Pan Parmesan Pesto Chicken & Veggies #recipe #chicken #maindish

As much as I love one pot meals, I think one pan/sheet meals are just as spiffy. This recipe has pesto, which is my life blood, and all kinds of other goodies that the pesto makes immensely more delicious: chicken, potatoes, carrots, and broccoli. It's got everything you need for a good meal and it's easy with little clean up!

Grilled Butter Burgers #FantasticalFoodFight

Welcome to another Food Fight! Fantastical Food Fight is a group of food bloggers who will get a theme or ingredient each month and make some sort of variation for it. It could be traditional or nontraditional and can be found in a cookbook, on a blog, or be a blogger's own creation! For more details, check out this page.

This month's Fantastical Food Fight theme is BURGERS. It's perfect timing to start sharing all the grilling recipes because summer is upon us! May is National Hamburger Month and I thought burgers were really the best route for a theme for May.

Today I have these fabulous grilled butter burgers to share with y'all. I didn't realize how much difference a pat of garlic herb butter would make in a burger but I can't imagine them any other way now! I am really particular with my burgers nowadays. I don't like multiple meat or crazy seasonings. I just like 80/20 beef and salt and pepper. I let the toppings do the work. These burgers were a huge hit in my household and made the favorite list for everyone (except for Mason who doesn't eat non-beige foods really -_-).
