Steak Hash with Pepperjack Sauce

You'll definitely start your morning off right with this hearty steak hash with a creamy, spicy cheese sauce!

Steak Hash with Pepperjack Sauce #recipe #breakfast #steak #beef #hash

Is there anything better than a savory breakfast? I think hashes are good for lunch or dinner too, but what a wonderful way to start the day. A hearty, filling hash with steak, eggs, potatoes, and a creamy Pepperjack sauce - there really is no beating that! I wanted seconds and thirds of it and I was so happy to have some leftover Pepperjack sauce because it is good on a myriad of things - especially a burger.

Sausage & Pecan Cranberry Stuffing

Dress up (pun intended) that premade stuffing mix with spicy sausage, tart cranberries, and pecans and be a Holiday Hero!

Sausage & Pecan Cranberry Stuffing #recipe #sidedish #holidayrecipe #thanksgiving #christmas #stuffing

I still haven't quite figured out the difference between stuffing and dressing when it comes to holiday food, but I do know that I have always loved Stove Top stuffing. But it seemed like most times when it came to stuffing/dressing on the holiday spread, I wasn't a fan. One of my food aversions is wet bread/crackers. I don't dip breads in anything that will make it soggy. No crackers in my soup. No way.

When I moved to Tennessee, my aunt had made cornbread stuffing for Thanksgiving and I fell in love. It was the perfect texture and tasted amazing. I decided to try my hand at a stuffing recipe for Thanksgiving and could not have been more happy. It has spicy sausage, a sour green apple, pecans, and tart dried cranberries. You can choose what type of stuffing you want to use, but I reached for the cornbread stuffing because it's my favorite and honestly, why wouldn't you pick cornbread stuffing?! I am happy to report that everyone who tried it enjoyed it immensely and it will definitely be a go-to side dish recipe for the holidays.

One Serving Chocolate Chip Cookie

This recipe is perfect for a late-night snack and takes less than 5 minutes to make!

One Serving Chocolate Chip Cookie #recipe #dessert #cookie #oneserving

I was craving chocolate chip cookies one night and I really wanted to avoid making a huge mess really late at night, so I took to trying to find a small batch of cookies, possibly one bowl recipes, if I could find it. I was so pleased to find this one serving cookie recipe - that indeed is a one-bowl recipe. It's not the most perfect cookie I have ever had and I will always prefer a batch of homemade cookies to this. However, this definitely was perfect in a pinch when I had a craving.

Slow Cooker Italian Beef Sandwiches

These Italian beef sandwiches are like Philly cheesesteaks with pepperoncinis - so delish!

Slow Cooker Italian Beef Sandwiches #recipe #sandwich #crockpot #slowcooker #beef

I was immediately drawn to this recipe because it was like a mix between Mississippi pot roast and Philly cheesesteak. There is no way a recipe could be bad if it was that combination! As expected, this was a wonderful recipe. I keep an eye out for sales on pot roast and pork loins and tend to always have one or the other (or both!) in my freezer at any given time. I definitely recommend doing that because it's awesome to save money AND have one of them in the freezer to make a great recipe like this when you want it!

Roasted Broccoli Alfredo

Roasted broccoli elevates this rich alfredo dish - it's easy and fast to make!

Roasted Broccoli Alfredo #recipe #pasta #alfredo #broccoli

I sort of feel a little guilty that I have been sharing tons of meatless recipes that I added meat to, but I am married to someone who would eat steak and only steak for every meal for the rest of his life if he could. He, of course, loves a lot of other food, but he is not a fan of meatless meals...not in the least bit. This recipe would be great meatless or served up with roasted chicken breast, but I thought it would be fantastic to cook up some Italian-seasoned chicken and slice it to serve on top of the pasta. We love broccoli alfredo, but this roasted broccoli alfredo was a whole other level of awesomeness.

Throwback Thursday No. 72

Throwback Thursday No. 72 | Rediscovering Old Favorites in the Recipe Archive

I still have yet to go to the Cheesecake Factory but that hasn't stopped me from enjoying this CHEESECAKE FACTORY PUMPKIN CHEESECAKE recipe. It's one of my all-time favorite cheesecake recipes.

Although grilling time is almost over, these MEXI STEAK KABOBS are definitely something you'll want to have on your meal plan for the summer!
