One Pot Philly Cheesesteak Pasta

A wonderful one pot pasta recipe with all the best parts of a Philly cheesesteak!

I'm testing out a new print feature and I hope it works out alright. I was using Google sites but the new version doesn't format correctly nor does it automatically bring up the print window like the classic version did. So I'll have to work on that here and there and it will probably take an eternity. 10 years of recipes will have to be converted over - AAH. Anyways, here's another lifesaving one pot recipe that is perfect for when you have to do time-consuming, repetitive, mind numbing blog work :P

All kidding aside, I do love one pot meals. It took me a bit to get used to the right amount of stirring and ensuring the pasta gets cooked properly and doesn't stick to the bottom of the pan, but once you master that, these are the best kind of recipes for really busy nights. Love having all the classic flavors of Philly cheesesteaks in pasta form!

Salted Caramel Muffins

Sweet dense little muffins with a salted dulce de leche swirl and caramel bits on top!

This is one of the breakfast recipes I had on my monthly meal plan for years. I know that sounds crazy but I really hate making breakfast recipes and so I stopped trying to do three a week. I tried 2 a week and it still wasn't working. Now I only plan one a week and most weeks, I don't make it *awkward shrug* I am not a morning person and sometimes I get too wrapped up in things to make a breakfast recipe for the next day. I like muffins because they are quick to throw together and if I manage to not make too much of a mess in the muffin tin, fairly easily clean up versus making pancakes or waffles or donuts. I loved the salty caramel in this SO much.

Creamy Spinach Artichoke Chicken

Have your dip and eat it too with this Creamy Spinach Artichoke Chicken!

Today is my blog's 10th birthday! I cannot believe I have blogged for 10 years. 10 years worth of recipes. What's funny to me is that this is the first time I will add the label for artichokes as an ingredient. In 10 years of blogging, I've never posted a recipe with artichokes!

I've been on a spinach artichoke streak lately where it's what I'm craving and so I've tried out a few recipes that are not specifically spinach artichoke dip because that's basically the only way I've ever eaten it. I have been trying to eat less red meat (still) and I'm trying to find new chicken recipes that don't involve pasta. I really enjoyed this recipe. I would love to try my hand at handling a fresh artichoke soon!

Butterbeer Cupcakes

To celebrate the birthday of the Boy Who Lived (despite the author), these cupcakes are full of butterscotch flavor!

Oof. A hard post to get to write after some of the behavior of the alleged author of the Harry Potter series, but I am not condoning or agreeing with any of her stances. They are wrong. She is wrong. I wanted to post this recipe today because it is Harry's birthday. I have yet to have butterbeer from Universal and don't know if I'll ever get around to it to be honest. Especially not in the near future.

These are fantastic little butterscotch cupcakes. The cupcakes base is cream soda/vanilla flavored and then you have a butterscotch filling that goes into the cupcakes and into the frosting AND drizzled on top. You don't have to be a Potterhead to enjoy these sweet little cupcakes!
