If you are looking for a quick and delicious meal you can make in 30 minutes…well, my friends…this is it! I have tons of other things to blog about but this just leaped over all those! I am almost ashamed to tell you the backstory on this dish but here it is: About a million years ago, one of Gabe’s co-workers gave him a recipe for Rotel Chicken. Gabe surprised me by making it for dinner one night. He may have made it one other time as well. It was a great meal and we both liked it a lot, but for some reason, we just forgot about it. I did not make it to the grocery store this weekend so we have been pantry eating all week. Yesterday I was brainstorming like crazy to come up with a meal for tonight when this recipe came to mind. I knew I had all the ingredients on hand. There was one problem, though. Since Gabe made it, he could not remember the recipe, so here is my own personal version of Rotel!
I don’t make many casseroles. I have a few that I really like, and that’s about it. I have just never been a huge fan. I know, I know for a busy mom, like me, I should be making one at least once a week. I have to be honest I am just not a fan of cream of whatever soup. Yes, I have and will use them on occasion but I just don’t like to use them very often. I try really hard to eliminate as many processed food as I possibly can I am no saint but I can say I do make a very conscience effort! I stumbled upon this recipe on Pink Parsley’s blog while looking for the chicken tortilla soup recipe I made a few weeks ago and I knew I had to try it! I am so glad I did because it is delicious! I used the same ingredients but I changed up the prep a little to suite my busy day! I hope you try this recipe soon!
This week has been particularly busy for us. We are prepping for our first family vacation to the beach! Plus, work is just over the top at the moment, which will make me enjoy this trip that much more! Needless to say, I have had absolutely no time to dedicate to my blog which makes me very sad. I have tons of things to share with you, so please hang in there! With such a busy schedule this week, I have not had a lot of time to cook so this recipe was perfect! It is so easy to make, and it is also very delicious! I hope you enjoy it!
Did you know that National Cheeseburger Day is this Wednesday, September 18th? I actually didn’t know either until a few weeks ago. When I decided to start this blog I looked up all the national food days so that I could honor a few of them. Let me tell you there are tons! I was so amazed that so many foods are recognized! There are some that I am super excited about and this is most certainly one of them! We usually have cheeseburgers of some sort at least once a week, once every other week when I’m slippin! Right now cheeseburgers are at an all time high on the popularity charts. They are being transformed into so much more than just meat and cheese. If there is a dish you like you can bet there is a cheeseburger version of it out there somewhere. This is one fad that I just can’t get on board with. Sure I can change a few things about how I make my usual cheeseburger (I did just that with this recipe) but I am not going to mess with a good thing! Here’s a look at how I created my cheeseburger make-over. I will be posting these homemade burger buns later in the week so stay tuned!
There are times in the heat of summer when it is just to darn hot to grill. Maybe it’s the middle of winter and all you can think about is a big juicy steak but your grill is covered with snow. Well I have the solution! Do you ever wonder how restaurants get their steaks so juicy? They pan sear the steak to keep the juices in. It’s a technique I have been using for a few years now and to be honest I prefer my steaks to be cooked this way rather than grilled! You must try this technique the next time you are cooking steak. I finish the steak with a slice of herb compound butter. Enjoy!
Here it is the recipe you have all been waiting for! Let me just say this pizza is the bomb! We have had it twice within 4 days if that tells you anything! Jacob had 3 pieces tonight and still wanted more. Through my short time as a blogger I am still learning all about food photography and everything that goes along with it. I am quickly learning that if the sun is not cooperating then you are…how do I say this…screwed. I worked so hard to get this pizza ready before the sun went down and I almost made it almost;) This picture is not everything I want it to be but it’s not as bad as some of my others so it will do for now. I hope you like this pizza as much as we do! Enjoy!
