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.

Broccoli Chicken Casserole

This casserole is cheesy with yummy broccoli and chicken - sure to be a family favorite.

We tend to eat a lot of broccoli in our household because it's one vegetable we all really like a ton. Casseroles are something I think a lot of Americans - especially in the Midwest - grew up eating, so they are very much a comfort food for me. This one has homemade sauce and a good amount of cheese. Super easy to make and really yummy. The original recipe had mushrooms (that you saute with the onions) but Cami is the only one who eats mushrooms so they usually get omitted.

Crockpot Fiesta Ranch Cream Cheese Chicken

A great and versatile recipe for tacos, enchiladas, burritos, etc.

This is another one of those recipes that just does not photograph well, but it tastes amazing. It's super versatile and you can use it in tacos, burritos, enchiladas, etc. We did tacos/burritos and used tomato, lettuce, cheese, and I did avocado ranch dressing too. It makes a good amount so it's great for a crowd or for meal prepping.
