Carne Asada Fries

Yum

I don't need chili cheese fries, I need these Carne Asada Fries in my life!

I don't need chili cheese fries, I need these Carne Asada Fries in my life! #recipe #fries #carneasada #beef

For this recipe, I purchased carne asada style beef and a packet of carne asada seasoning to make my own carne asada. I wanted my cheese to be super melty, so I stuck the fries back in the oven so it'd be all melty and delicious. Then I topped it with the carne asada and cilantro. I am the only one in my family who eats guacamole, so I left that off of everyone else's. I do want to say Nick ate his topped with banana peppers though.

5-Ingredient Mexi Quinoa Stuffed Peppers

Yum

You only need five ingredients for this delicious stuffed pepper recipe!

I had every intention of making these quinoa stuffed peppers exactly how the original recipe stated, however, I had the worst time trying to find black bean crumbles, so I subbed in some chorizo. It still turned out fabulously and I love the easy of just having to use five ingredients to make dinner. It's just fantastic. Seriously.

Spicy Italian Meatloaf

Yum

Regular old meatloaf should move over! This spicy sausage meatloaf blows it out of the water.

Spicy Italian Meatloaf // Regular old meatloaf should move over! This spicy sausage meatloaf blows it out of the water. #recipe #meatloaf #sausage #beef

I love meatloaf, but unfortunately, my family gets a little sick of recipes if I make them over and over again. It kind of works out well that I have so many recipes hoarded that there is always a new one to try out. I purchased the Cravings cookbook after seeing a million and a half food snaps from Chrissy Teigen. I knew the cookbook would be wonderful and I was so right! I was excited to see this particular recipe because I had never made a meatloaf using Italian sausage. And, of course, it did not hurt at all that it was spicy.

Hello and happy Friday! I have a wonderful one skillet meal to share with y'all today. Bonus: it's ready in under 30 minutes. These are my favorite kind of recipes! The sausage and red bells go perfectly with the gnocchi. There is a hint of lemon and parsley to tie the whole meal together. I personally love that the gnocchi gets a little browned to get a nice crunch.

Throwback Thursday No. 33 | Rediscovering Old Favorites in the Recipe Archive

Hello, Thursday! One of my favorite blog posts to make is this TBT post where I get to share some of old favorites :)

I love breakfast foods and both of my shares today are breakfast recipes. I love scrambled eggs and make them often, but what I love more is this recipe for OVEN SCRAMBLED EGGS. It does take a little while, but you can make a ton of scrambled eggs all at once.


And...my holy grail pancake recipe: BEST BUTTERMILK PANCAKES. They are fluffy, moist and so amazing. You must try them!

Heirloom BLT with Fried Eggs and Smoked Gouda #FantasticalFoodFight

Yum

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.


Heirloom BLT with Fried Eggs and Smoked Gouda // Amp up your BLT with a little fried egg, gouda cheese, and chipotle mayo #FantasticalFoodFight #recipe #sandwich #blt #bacon

Did you know April is National BLT Month? I didn't until I was researching a good theme for April's Food Fight. This month, we were challenged to make a BLT. The rules were that it had to be a sandwich that contained bacon, a leafy green, and tomato. I'm curious to see all the new ways to make a BLT because I found plenty of variations that had me sweating trying to narrow it down. In the end, I chose a BLT with fried egg and gouda because I love fried egg sandwiches and gouda goes well on literally all the things. Okay, maybe not all the things, but a lot of them. :)

I chose to slightly modify the original recipe that I found because the bacon is turned into bourbon maple bacon and I do not like maple and I had no bourbon. I also left out the avocado because I am the only one who will eat avocado in my family. I really loved how the gouda and egg and chipotle mayo made this BLT so much better than just a plain BLT!

Outrageous Jalapeno Popper Grilled Cheese

Yum

This grilled cheese is outrageously good with its cream cheese stuffed jalapenos, bacon, and cheese on jalapeno cheese bread.

Outrageous Jalapeno Popper Grilled Cheese // This grilled cheese is outrageously good with its cream cheese stuffed jalapenos, bacon, and cheese on jalapeno cheese bread #recipe #jalapeno #grilledcheese

Are y'all ready for this jalapeno popper goodness? It's outrageous. It truly is.

I'm a little late posting today and didn't realize I needed to get a post up until around lunchtime. Then it was a matter of I wasn't happy with the recipe I was going to post and hummed and hawed over what the new recipe would be. I finally started posting 2016 recipes, so it's not that I don't have any ready to go. I have too many. I have the rest of this calendar year planned out posting-wise, so it was just a matter of picking one of my newer recipes to share today. I posted the jalapeno cheese bread recipe I used in this recipe last Thursday and did not have these grilled cheese sandwiches anywhere in my posting calendar for 2017, so it was definitely fate!

These are not yo momma's jalapeno popper grilled cheese. They are not simply grilled cheese with the flavors of jalapeno poppers. Nope. They have literal cream cheese stuffed roasted jalapenos inside them. Plus more cheese. Plus bacon. Plus...it's all on CHEESY JALAPENO BREAD!!! Come through, Jalapeno Popper Flavor, come through!

No Knead Jalapeno Cheese Bread

Yum

Impress friends and family with this cheesy, spicy bread that, as it turns out, is easy to make, but you don't have to let them know that!

No Knead Jalapeno Cheese Bread // Impress friends and family with this cheesy, spicy bread that, as it turns out, is easy to make, but you don't have to let them know that! #recipe #bread #jalapeno #cheese #castiron

I honestly could not scream favorite enough for this recipe for jalapeno cheese bread. It was my first time making bread in my cast iron Dutch oven and I was incredibly nervous. I did have my recipe come from someone I would call a bread making guru. Karen's blog has a million and a half bread recipes and is such a wealth of knowledge for a bread beginner, so I knew I had a trusted source for a good recipe. It just fell on me to not screw it up!

I was so thankful that I did not screw it up. I followed Karen's instructions very carefully and the result was the best bread I have ever had in my life. We used it to make jalapeno popper grilled cheese sandwiches (recipe coming soon!), like the jalapenos and cheese in the bread weren't enough to begin with! I just cannot describe in words how perfect and delicious this bread was. Y'all have got to try it for yourselves!

Homemade Bean & Bacon Soup

Yum

You can't beat a homemade soup -- especially one that has bacon in it!

Homemade Bean & Bacon Soup // You can't beat a homemade soup -- especially one that has bacon in it! #recipe #copycat #soup #bacon

When I was a kid, I lived for the moments when the canned soup for lunch was bean and bacon soup. It is the only canned soup I have ever liked remotely. I have tried a few bean and bacon recipes and they were wonderful, but did not quite capture the same essence of the canned soup. I know it's probably a weird thing to be hunting for a recipe that tastes like canned soup, but I don't mean that I want it to taste like canned soup. I want it to taste similar enough to it, but obviously much better because it's a homemade recipe!

I want to say my previous attempts at a bean and bacon soup did not contain carrots, which were a welcome addition. I also know for certain that they did not have tomato sauce in them. I saw that on the ingredients list and side eyed it pretty hard, but I've come to trust what recipe creators are doing and went with it. The results were incredible. It is reminiscent of my favorite soup from my childhood, but it's homemade and so the quality is so much better.

Chicken & Bacon Pasta with Spinach & Tomatoes

Yum

Don't underestimate this recipe -- it's incredibly flavorful yet simple to make!

Chicken & Bacon Pasta with Spinach & Tomatoes // Don't underestimate this recipe -- it's incredibly flavorful yet simple to make! #recipe #pasta #chicken #maindish

I love when I make something that doesn't look altogether too impressive, but turns out to be so friggin' delicious that it blows my mind. This pasta recipe is one of those recipes. I adore pasta recipe with tomatoes and spinach. The only thing that makes pasta better, in my opinion, is pesto. Because I have been on the pesto train lately. Also, that is a thing...a pesto train.

This recipe didn't need pesto by any means. The paprika and Italian seasoning worked very well for minimal seasoning but maximum flavor (that was dorky, sorry). We have tomato and spinach and BACON. It's such a flavorful dish.

Bacon Cheeseburger Gnocchi Skillet

Yum

When your day has been rough, this one pot skillet meal with all the flavors of a bacon cheeseburger is ready in under 30 minutes.

Bacon Cheeseburger Gnocchi Skillet // When your day has been rough, this one pot skillet meal with all the flavors of a bacon cheeseburger is ready in under 30 minutes. #recipe #bacon #maindish #onepot #skilletmeal

One pots have become my lifeline lately and usually they are pasta-based, so I was excited to test out  this recipe that has gnocchi and tastes like a burger! I mean who doesn't like bacon cheeseburgers and it's certainly nice to try a dish that has most of the elements of bacon cheeseburgers. This one pot meal is also ready in under 30 minutes. Winner winner, cheeseburger skillet dinner!

This week has been so confusing for me. On Monday, I thought it was Thursday and was convinced on Tuesday it was actually Wednesday. Needless to say, it's been a long week! On weeks like this, I just want simple meals. I love cooking -- don't get me wrong, but when I'm exhausted mentally and physically, I like to throw something together with little effort and be done with it. So I'm glad to have recipes like this in my archives to be able to whip together on hard days/weeks.

Throwback Thursday No. 32 | Rediscovering Old Favorites in the Recipe Archive

Hello, hello! Thursday is here and it's time for a throwback :)

First up is a tried-and-true banana bread recipe for SOUR CREAM BANANA BREAD. I adore adding sour cream to dessert bread-y type recipes. It's excellent in bread and in cake.

And then one of my all-time favorite dips...favorite appetizers...favorite jalapeno popper recipes: JALAPENO POPPER DIP. So so so good. Nick wasn't happy to find out after he devoured it that it had mayonnaise in it, but you honestly can't taste it if mayo isn't your thing.

One Pot Ham & Pasta Skillet // A perfectly simple spring dish that can be enjoyed all year round - and in a flash, ready in under 30 minutes. #recipe #onepot #maindish #ham #spring

Hello, spring! Hello, seasonal allergies! LOL

I am back with a simple, wonderful one pot skillet dish. This one features some very spring ingredients. I dig any type of recipe that is made in one pot or skillet or pan and especially if that one dish recipe is made in under 30 minutes with very little prep. This recipe you only have to chop the onions and that's the only prep there is. Every other ingredient is already prepped and you just have to measure and dump it in. So that's a winner winner ham dinner in my book.

Double Chocolate Chip Muffins

Yum

When in doubt, double the chocolate and serve it for breakfast!

Double Chocolate Chip Muffins // When in doubt, double the chocolate and serve it for breakfast! #recipe #breakfast #muffins #chocolate

As a kid, my mom made the pouch muffins all the time. I'm not going to lie...those pouch chocolate chip muffins are still, to this day, one of my very favorite breakfasts. However, I'm always worried about any packaged goodies being discontinued and finding copycat recipes that would take the place of them is pretty important to me. This is not a copycat recipe, but I do like to try plenty of muffin recipes so I can have a good little treasure trove of wonderful muffin recipes to make. Instead of a vanilla based muffin with chocolate chips, this recipe is double the chocolate. And there is nothing wrong with double the chocolate! The chocolate muffin with chocolate chips is just fabulous.

Yum

Classic caprese flavors in a wonderful chicken and quinoa casserole

Cheesy Chicken Caprese Pesto and Quinoa Casserole // Classic caprese flavors in a wonderful chicken and quinoa casserole #recipe #maindish #chicken #caprese #pesto #tomato #SundaySupper

Hello, everyone! I am back for another Sunday Supper Movement event. Today's event is hosted by Rini of Healing Tomato and the theme is RECIPES USING FRESH TOMATOES. I immediately thought of this dish because it is one of my more recent favorites. I initially made it without pesto, but I feel the pesto really adds a depth of flavor it was missing prior to. Plus I have been on a very big pesto kick lately. It honestly doesn't matter what I'm trying to eat...a sandwich, pasta, pizza, etc., I've probably put pesto in or on it. I personally think this casserole would also be great with ground turkey or beef or even Italian sausage.


Don't forget to check out the recipes at the bottom of the post from my fellow Sunday Supper Movement blogger friends!

Fantastical Friday

Yum

I figured today would be as good as any to just do a simple update. I've been working pretty hard to post on time and regularly. I've been working at regularly updating my Instagram and Facebook page to share my favorite food finds from my fellow bloggers. I do try and share my new posts there too, but it doesn't always happen.

It has been so chaotic in my household lately. My oldest, Matthew, started soccer, so we have soccer practices and games now. Plus Girl Scouts. I think Cami is going to be switching from GS to something new in the fall. But anyways...I thought this was too funny:


Hope y'all have had a wonderful week and hope your weekend is even better!

For Super Bowl 2016, I decided I wanted to make something similar to Petro's (I'll link that recipe at the end of the post!) or Frito chili pies because we weren't having a get together or anything like that. I still wanted some type of a game dayesque food. I chose to try this recipe from Amy's blog and went with her garden chili recipe to top it. The chili is quite fabulous. It has red wine in it and the wine gives it such a bold, rich flavor to it. Plus tatortots and hot dogs! That's good grub!

Although not my first recipe I've made with leeks, they are still a pretty new-to-me food. I am fairly certain I like them and really want to use them more. I know it sounds weird, but this soup tastes so fresh and simple and it's truly wonderful. I prefer soups like this for days where it is a little warmer. Of course, bacon is just the icing on the cake here!

Burgers with Thyme Caramelized Onions // These burgers have thyme caramelized onions sealed between two pieces of cheese and are smothered in garlic mayo...nothing better than that! #recipe #burgers #beef #maindish

We have burgers every other Friday (for the most part) and I love to try new recipes every now and then. I tend to stick to very traditional burgers because I am pretty particular with burgers. I like them seasoned with only salt and pepper and then the toppings add extra flavor. I'm not a fan of garlic or Worcestershire sauce in burgers even though I am a garlic-aholic. But I do make an exception on occasion. These yummy burgers do have Worcestershire in them, but a majority of the "oomph" in flavor comes from the caramelized onions and very very delicious garlic mayo. It does take a little bit of time to make because of the process of caramelizing the onions, however, it is all worth it in the end!

I slightly adapted the method of building the burger and sealed the caramelized onions in between two slices of cheese to keep them from sliding off the burger while eating. I also added bacon to ours...because bacon :)

I am back again for another Sunday Supper event and today's event is CITRUS RECIPES THAT WILL MAKE YOU SMILE hosted by Lisa of Jersey Girl Eats. I chose to share this lovely one pan recipe because not only does it fit the "citrus" bill, but it's also got the yummy springtime veggie, asparagus. Since spring has sprung, I had to share a spring recipe!

This lovely one pan dish has crispy, crunchy lemon garlic chicken and roasted asparagus with lemon garlic seasoning. All of it has Parmesan cheese in it. And then it's topped with a honey lemon "sauce", so-to-speak. It's so bright and lovely and I can't help but just love this recipe.

Chicken Potato Chip Club Sandwiches

Chicken Potato Chip Club Sandwiches // This club sandwich has herbed lemony chicken and crunchy potato chips that make it way better than just a regular old club sandwich. #recipe #chicken #clubsandwich #sandwich #bacon #potatochips

Potato chips belong on sandwiches as much as they belong on a plate next to a sandwich! This club sandwich is actually pretty quick to throw together and it has a ton of flavor. It's not just a bland plain old regular sandwich. The lemon and fresh herbs go a long way to really amp up this sandwich. You can use any kind of leafy green - it doesn't have to be lettuce. You can also switch up the fresh herbs, but I went with basil because basil is my lifeblood. Hope you all try this sandwich out...bacon, chicken, lemon, greens, and potato chips are all wonderful together.
