Dump-and-Bake Chicken Alfredo Casserole

No slaving over the oven for this casserole, just put it in your baking dish and let your oven do the work!

Happy Friday, everyone! I hope you had a wonderful week. Today, I'm bringing y'all this wonderful, easy casserole that is on my rotation when I need a recipe with chicken in it. What I love about this recipe in particular is there is no cooking the pasta before it goes in the casserole. The pasta cooks in it! If you have rotisserie chicken, you literally just mix it all in the baking dish and let your oven do all the work.

Texas Roadhouse Steak Rub

Give your steak a bit of Texas Roadhouse flavor with this copycat rub.

My family doesn't go out to eat very often - partly because feeding 5 people with a tip is a bit on the pricey side. I do a ton of copycat recipes all the time, as I'm sure those of you who have been followers for a while have seen. I decided to test out this copycat Texas Roadhouse recipe because we love Texas Roadhouse. It's one of the very few sit-down restaurants we frequent (this and Applebee's) because Nick loves steak. Their green beans are also bomb. I have been making a load of copycat seasoning mixes at home and this one was definitely a keeper.

Butter Pecan Cheesecake

If you love butter pecan ice cream, this beautiful cheesecake will be right up your alley.

Butter Pecan Cheesecake #recipe #dessert #cheesecake #butterpecan

When I was really young, my favorite ice cream was Rocky Road or Cherry Nut. As I got into my preteens, I discovered Pralines & Cream and Butter Pecan, which have remained two of my favorite ice cream flavors into adulthood. I have been making loads of cheesecake lately and I thought this butter pecan cheesecake would be the perfect treat. I ended up serving it topped with some butterscotch caramel sauce and whipped cream (although I have no pictures of that due to losing my pictures in the hard drive crash last summer).

Pesto Chicken Caprese Pasta

This pestolicious recipe has all the classic caprese elements and that means seconds are a must!

I have made plenty of caprese recipes and shared them on the blog. The reason behind this is basically that I love pesto (it is my life blood, y'all) and I adore pairing it with tomatoes. I didn't fix the balsamic glaze because I'd be the only one to eat it, but I highly recommend doing so because caprese needs balsamic. What I particularly love about this recipe is that the chicken is marinaded in pesto and you add pesto to the pasta. Then you have these lovely little pearls of mozzarella that get all melty and gooey but still maintain their shape. It's just the best little surprise when you get a bite with a pearl.
