One Pan Breakfast Skillet

When I was little, my mom would make pancakes every Saturday morning. I believe this is a big reason for breakfast being my favorite meal. I absolutely love breakfast food, and can get behind breakfast for dinner almost any night of the week. I am lucky enough to married to a man who loves breakfast…

One Pan Chicken “Taco” Bake

I’m sure the quotations around taco raised some eyebrows. They’re there because in no way is this a traditional or even Tex-Mex taco. I grew up and live in the Midwest, I cook a lot of Midwest food, these are Midwest tacos. What is great about this recipe is how simple the base is; you can…

One Pot Chicken and Succotash

You know what I love about things like succotash? It’s easy, colorful, delicious, and there’s so many things you can add to it. This is a great meal for summer. You don’t have to make it in one pot, it’s also fantastic with grilled chicken. Let’s get cooking! You Will Need: Large dutch oven Frozen…

One Pot Chicken Pot Pie Noodles

I have loved chicken pot pie since I was a little girl. It’s one of those great comfort foods that sticks to your ribs all day, and just makes you feel better about the world. (And who couldn’t use some of that right now, eh?) A few years ago, I made chicken pot pies for Thanksgiving….

One Pot Beef and Noodle Soup

We have a great Vietnamese restaurant here in town. I always order the rare flank steak pho, but their entire menu is fantastic! If you’re ever in the area, you have to check out Da Kao. So one night, I was craving some pho but not in the mood to go pick it up, and they…

One Pot Swedish Meatballs with Egg Noodle

The first time I had Swedish meatballs, my dad and stepmom and taken my brother and me up to celebrate Christmas with her family in Minnesota. Being such a picky eater growing up, I’m sure both my dad and stepmom were interested to see what would happen when I was presented something different and no option…

One Pot Pasta Bolognese

One of my favorite comfort foods is pasta in a hearty Bolognese sauce. I love eating it, but I do have a love/hate relationship with the process of making it. It takes forever. While I love that it makes my apartment smell like the rolling hills of Tuscany, and I love being in the kitchen chopping…

One Pot Chicken Alfredo

Welcome to the One Pot series! For the first day of this quickie before summer starts, we have a delicious, gooey, cheesy, chicken alfredo…all done in one pot! I love meals like these mostly because of the short cleanup. One pot means less dishes than I normally have to do when I cook! This particular…

New Series!

I know it’s been a couple days since I posted, but I’ve been thinking I want to do one more short series before getting into the summer series! So this next series will be all about one pot meals, and then we’ll getting into the summer grilling series! (I’m sure that was probably obvious, but…

Slow Cooker #5 Dessert

I promised you I’d have a slow cooker dessert up today, and not only do I have a dessert…but it’s one of the best slow cooker dessert recipes I’ve ever made. Slow Cooker…CHOCOLATE CHEESECAKE LAVA CAKE! Yes, you heard correctly. Chocolate. Cheesecake. Lava. Cake. I originally found the recipe for the Chocolate lava cake on tasteofhome.com and the slow cooker…

Black bean and Kielbasa soup

Welcome to day #4 of the slow cooker series! I took a break yesterday to visit Alex’s grandmother, but I’m back and ready to go! Today we have one of my favorite soups. It’s something that was introduced to me by Alex’s dad, but I’ve tweaked the recipe to make it my own. It freezes…

Chili

Welcome to the 3rd day of the slow cooker series! Today we have slow cooker chili! I love to make chili in my crockpot because I can start it in the morning, and it’s ready by dinner time. (Like all slow cooker meals…duh, April) Also, my apartment smells AMAZING when it’s time to eat. This…
