Mississippi Pot Roast Cheesesteaks

Cheesesteaks have never tasted so good!


Mississippi Pot Roast is a recipe that has definitely secured its place in a little viral recipe history. It is everywhere I go and there is absolutely a reason for that: it is THE best pot roast ever. We refer to it as "THE pot roast" now because it's pretty much the only one I make. I saw someone post on reddit that they had turned THE pot roast into cheesesteaks and decided that we definitely had to do that too. It's a wonderful way to enjoy the buttery, spicy roast!

Menu Plan Monday for May 20, 2019 // What I'm making this week #menuplanmonday #mealplan

This week I'm going to try and duplicate Marion's Pizza again. It's sausage, banana peppers, and bacon on a thinner crust. If you're from the Dayton, OH area, you may have had it before. I spent nearly 12 years hearing about it from my husband and his family before getting my own and it was hyped for a reason! I don't have a link for the coffee cake because the website is down for maintenance. I will update as soon as I can.

Monday - Cajun Chicken Alfredo
Tuesday - Loaded Nachos
Wednesday - Omelets // One Pot White Chicken Lasagna Soup
Thursday - Perfect Steak with Herbed Butter
Friday - Copycat Marion's Pizza
Weekend - Creamy Spinach Artichoke Chicken // Raspberry Cream Cheese Coffee Cake // Strawberry Lemon Snack Cake

Sheet Pan Parmesan Pesto Chicken & Vegetables

One bowl and one pan bring a full dinner with loads of veggies and wonderful pesto flavor to the table in a little over 30 minutes.

Sheet Pan Parmesan Pesto Chicken & Veggies #recipe #chicken #maindish

As much as I love one pot meals, I think one pan/sheet meals are just as spiffy. This recipe has pesto, which is my life blood, and all kinds of other goodies that the pesto makes immensely more delicious: chicken, potatoes, carrots, and broccoli. It's got everything you need for a good meal and it's easy with little clean up!

Grilled Butter Burgers #FantasticalFoodFight

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.

This month's Fantastical Food Fight theme is BURGERS. It's perfect timing to start sharing all the grilling recipes because summer is upon us! May is National Hamburger Month and I thought burgers were really the best route for a theme for May.


Today I have these fabulous grilled butter burgers to share with y'all. I didn't realize how much difference a pat of garlic herb butter would make in a burger but I can't imagine them any other way now! I am really particular with my burgers nowadays. I don't like multiple meat or crazy seasonings. I just like 80/20 beef and salt and pepper. I let the toppings do the work. These burgers were a huge hit in my household and made the favorite list for everyone (except for Mason who doesn't eat non-beige foods really -_-).

Bloomin' Cinnamon Rolls

A fun way to make your cinnamon rolls look a little cuter for a special occasion!


I modified this Bloomin' Cinnamon Rolls recipe to fit refrigerated cinnamon rolls. For the life of me, I couldn't find frozen ones (which incidentally were a staple in my household as a child). None of this is necessary by any means, but it is fun and turns out really adorable and would be great when you're going for that kind of aesthetic, like for a breakfast in bed for your partner or a flower themed sleepover for one of your kids, etc. You do get added butter, sugar, cinnamon, and a little bit of caramel on top, so that's definitely a win.

Creamy Spinach & Sausage Pasta

This simple pasta recipe is ready in under 20 minutes and not only does it have spinach and sausage, but a little kick to it too!

Creamy Spinach and Sausage Pasta #recipe #maindish #pasta #sausage #quickrecipe #easyrecipe #onepotrecipe #onepotmeal

I'm always so impressed with the Monday pasta recipes I make. I can't remember the last time I didn't like a recipe that was a Monday dish. If you've caught on to my pattern for meal plans, I go back and forth between red meat and chicken (fairly consistent with it), I have one free day/leftover day, and there are some themes for each day of the week. Mondays are pasta recipes because they are quick. For those interested, Tuesdays are Mexican food, Wednesdays are soup/stew/chili recipes, Thursdays are throwbacks or Asian food, Fridays alternate pizza and burgers, and weekends are recipes that take a little longer to make.

This pasta recipe is simple and has a kick. I can't believe as a kid I refused to eat kielbasa or smoked sausage because it's one of my favorite proteins as an adult. I love it!

Strawberries & Cream Layer Cake

This beautiful layer cake is perfect for summer with fresh strawberries and light whipped cream!

Strawberries & Cream Layer Cake #recipe #dessert #cake #strawberry
Strawberries & Cream Layer Cake #recipe #dessert #cake #strawberry

Last October, we had another wedding in the family and I was asked to do the cake. I was tasked to find a strawberries & cream recipe for the bride and a marble cake recipe for the groom. I was really lucky and found the perfect recipe on the first try and bonus: the groom loved it too. I didn't use the whipped topping on wedding day but man alive, it was so wonderful. It's the perfect cake for summertime and it's really really pretty.

Bonus: this cake freezes REALLY well. I made it about a month in advanced and just made sure to wrap, wrap, wrap, and seal the layers. They defrosted pretty quickly and tasted just as amazing as the fresh cake did!

Chili Lime Chicken

This chicken is great on its own but even better in other dishes - like salad or pasta!

Chili Lime Chicken #recipe #chicken #chililime

I have been using this Chili Lime Chicken recipe for a while for different recipes, especially for salad nights if they fall on Taco Tuesday. If you are wondering what the heck is going on with that red watery food with chunks of tomato in it is...I attempted cauliflower Spanish "rice" and it didn't work at all. Anyway..this chicken is a perfect base recipe to use for a Southwest style salad, but also great on their own. Lots of flavor packed in during the marinating time!!

Stir frys are such great quick meals on busy nights. I was looking forward to trying another stir fry with cashews. This one was quick and really flavorful too. Not much else to say about it :)

Make Ahead Breakfast Scrambles

Easy prep and room for so much variety with these scrambles that are ready to cook in the morning!

Make Ahead Breakfast Scrambles #recipe #breakfast #egg #ham #jalapeno #bacon #cheese #mealprep

I have never really gotten into meal prep except for the period of time where Nick was doing the keto diet and we found this recipe for breakfast scrambles. They don't take long at all to prep, are relatively inexpensive, and they don't take long to cook either. I made two different varieties: jalapeno popper and Denver omelet. You can make any variety with different vegetables, meats, and seasonings.

I have been craving all the mediterranean food lately and by that I mean anything with tomato, cucumber, and tzatziki. Yes, please. This week, I will be attempting eggs benedict again and I'm terrified, but I think I can do it. If I made macarons, I can make hollandaise. Not that they have anything to do with one another but I feel like macarons are supposed to be way harder AND I live in an extremely humid environment.

Monday - Mediterranean Chicken Pasta
Tuesday - Slow Cooker Cheesy Enchilada Quinoa
Wednesday - Eggs Benedict // Colcannon Soup
Thursday - Perfect Grilled Steak with Herb Butter
Friday - The Ultimate Stuffed Crust Pizza
Saturday - Stuffed Chicken Cordon Blue

Taco Quesadillas

Turn those tacos into quesadillas for something a little different on Taco Tuesday!

Taco Quesadillas #recipe #quesadillas #beef #corntortillas

I am not a huge fan of corn tortillas. I love my flour tortillas. However, I do try to be a little adventurous and try things I "don't like" because I may find that I actually do like those foods. I really enjoyed these quesadillas made with corn tortillas - and they weren't even crispy crunchy all the way through (like I prefer corn tortillas to be). It's a wonderful and fairly easy variation for taco night.

Turtle Cheeseball #FantasticalFoodFight

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.

This month's Fantastical Food Fight theme is CHEESEBALLS. No, not the little bright orange snacky treats. But the appetizer composed of cheese - usually cream cheese and other cheeses, but not always. Why cheeseballs? Why today is National Cheeseball Day! So Happy National Cheeseball Day! I hope you all enjoy the treats we have to share with you today. They truly are wonderful appetizers for family/friends gatherings or holiday get-togethers.

Turtle Cheeseball #recipe #appetizer #dessert #turtle #chocolate #caramel #pecans #apples

My cheeseball went the sweet route and it is probably my favorite cheeseball of all-time. This Turtle Cheeseball has the classic elements that make up turtle desserts: caramel, chocolate, and pecans. You can use basically whatever dippers you want, but I highly highly recommend apples. I have trouble finding caramel bits, although you can order them off of Amazon, so I used caramel squares cut into quarters.

Italian Noodle Casserole

This casserole is like baked ziti with lighter Greek yogurt and zucchini in it!

Italian Noodle Casserole #recipe #beef #pasta #Greekyogurt #zucchini #maindish

I have made this recipe two or three times now trying to get a good picture and it's just not going to happen. It ALWAYS photographs orange. Don't let that deter you from how absolutely delicious this recipe is. It reminds me a lot of baked ziti but lighter. You use Greek yogurt instead of sour cream or ricotta and there is zucchini in it. Any pasta recipe with zucchini ends up being on my favorites list. I'm sure that's merely a coincidence but all the pasta with zucchini recipes are always so great!

Blueberry Nut Bread

This beautiful blueberry nut bread is the perfect spring breakfast or snack.

Blueberry Nut Bread #recipe #blueberry #bread

I used to make banana bread all the time years ago and fell out of that habit. I saved lots of fruit bread recipes back then because I adore banana bread so much and felt that other fruits had to be pretty dang good too. I was really excited about this blueberry nut bread and a little intrigued by the maple syrup aspect of it. It wasn't strongly maple flavored, which I did like, but it did have a hint of maple enough to remind me of blueberry pancakes and that made me so happy.

Cilantro Lime Turkey Quinoa Stuffed Peppers

Simple ingredients combined to make a mouth-watering stuffed pepper that you will want to eat every day for forever.

Cilantro Lime Turkey Quinoa Stuffed Peppers #recipe #maindish #peppers #turkey #quinoa

I adore stuffed peppers and try to make them at least once a month. I've also started to really enjoy cilantro and lime together and you'll probably see more and more cilantro lime recipes on the blog. These peppers are probably my all-time favorite stuffed peppers and that was a really hard place for this recipe to unseat. I had one recipe that was my favorite for many many years. The filling itself is so addictive! The pepperjack cheese is a perfect match for the cilantro lime too.

Korean BBQ Steak Bowls

A wonderful bowl filled with marinated steak, pickled carrot and cucumber salad, garlic scented rice, eggs, and topped with homemade sriracha mayo!

Korean BBQ Steak Bowls #recipe #steak #beef #koreanbbq #rice #sriracha

I feel like I've been waiting for an eternity to share this recipe and I'm so glad it's finally time. We went through a spurt of trying Asian-type bowl recipes and this was one that really surprised me. It is the very first recipe in the nearly 10 years on my blog that features pear as an ingredient - isn't that crazy?! This bowl features garlic-scented rice, pickled honey carrot and cucumber salad, and sriracha mayo with delicious marinated beef and a fried egg to boot. You really can serve it with whatever style of egg you like and really any toppings you'd like, but we went this route!

Pizza Meatloaf

Meatloaf and pizza come together in this delicious dinner recipe with pepperoni inside and cheese and pizza sauce on top!

Pizza Meatloaf #recipe #meatloaf #beef #pizza #maindish

I found two recipes for pizza meatloaf and made both with varying levels of success - aka the consistency and baking time weren't always the most accurate. I messed with the recipes until I reached one that really worked for me. I have had horrible luck with stuffing my meatloaf with cheese, so cheese is on top. Instead of using whole pepperonis and chopping them, I opted for mini pepperonis. They are way less of a headache. One of the recipes called for 4 eggs and sauce in the meatloaf mixture, I went with 2 eggs and no sauce in the mixture. The final result was definitely a keeper and the whole family truly loves this variation on meatloaf. All the elements of pizza are there and who wouldn't love meatloaf that tastes like pizza!

Mimi's Cafe Carrot Cake Muffins

A spring dessert turned into muffins for breakfast - have your carrot cake and eat it too!

Mimi's Cafe Carrot Cake Muffins #recipe #muffins #breakfast #carrot #carrotcake

I adore carrot cake and I am not particular how it comes - it can have pineapple, coconut, raisins, walnuts, pecans, or whatever. I think it's fantastic. I love having dessert-like treats for breakfast and knew these carrot cake muffins would be awesome! They do have pineapple, raisins, and walnuts in them and they aren't as sweet as carrot cake, so they make for the perfect spring breakfast.

Asparagus Casserole #FantasticalFoodFight

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.

This month's Fantastical Food Fight theme is ASPARAGUS. We are almost in prime season for asparagus and what better way to bring in the new season of food than with sharing tons of asparagus recipes. We have been having asparagus with Easter dinner over the last few years and one of our go-to recipes is this Asparagus Casserole. Think green bean casserole but with asparagus.


I would ask for this over green bean casserole any day of the week even though I love green beans. I adore asparagus and in this casserole, it's so addictive! I did switch up a few things from the original recipe to include omitting mushrooms because we're not huge fans of mushrooms (Cami loves them, but the rest of us, nope!). None of us really care for Swiss cheese so I subbed in Gruyere which turned out so very well. It's a wonderful side dish with a baked ham. I cannot wait to see what other asparagus recipes my blogging pals have to share today!

Perfect French Fries

These french fries are homemade with lots of love and deserve the title "perfect"

Perfect French Fries #recipe #fries #potato #sidedish

I've been trying to find the right way to do homemade fries for a long time. I love to use my deep fryer because I like my fries to have some crunch to them. Homemade fries for me are often not crunchy at all. I decided to try out this method from Bobby Flay's cookbook, Burgers, Fries, & Shakes, and see if it was what I was looking for. What I like about this recipe is that you don't have to peel the potatoes. I love potato skins and that's also less work in the long run. It is, however, a process. A lengthy process that requires making a mess. I think in the end it is worth it though because these fries are definitely the best homemade fries I've ever had.

Argentinean Burgers

These hearty burgers are topped with sharp cheese and fresh, homemade chimichurri sauce!

Argentinean Burgers #recipe #burgers #beef #chimchurri

We are relatively new to chimichurri but it's definitely up there with pesto for sauces we love. Chimichurri is a parsley-based sauce that originated in Argentina and Uruguay. I was definitely drawn to this burger in the Bobby Flay cookbook I have because it's a very simple burger, but the homemade chimichurri is on top and I knew that would make this a killer recipe. I was unable to find Manchego cheese but any sharp white cheese will work well as a substitute.
