Recipes I’ve Tried Lately

Standard

1st up is a Chicken Bacon Ranch Bake from Easy Peasy Pleasin. This is by far the best recipe I’ve ever tried from Pinterest so I definitely didn’t get tired of the leftovers. I used a rotisserie chicken so it was easier to make.


I used the other half of the rotisserie chicken to make Italian Tortellini Pasta Salad. I accidentally grabbed spinach and ricotta filled ravioli but it was still delicious!!!!



I don’t have a picture of the next recipe I tried, which was onion and mayo porkchops. The recipe said to bake them for 25 min but I used bone in porkchops, which apparently makes a difference. I had to cook mine longer because they weren’t quite done at 25 min but it was very good.


Last but not least I tried Healthy Protein Waffles from Damn Delicious. I was skeptical on how good these were going to be with cottage cheese in them but they were really good! It made plenty so I had breakfast for the whole week, which is definitely a great thing! They definitely kept me full until lunch time. I topped mine with some Mississippi made pure cane syrup 😋

Mexican Beef Tator Tot Casserole & Adult Root Beer Float

Standard

The Mexican Beef Tator Tot Recipe is definitely going to be a new staple for me! It was super easy and super delicious! Next time I’m going to cut the red bell pepper into smaller pieces. I added guacamole and sour cream as my toppings.


My cousin told me about making an adult root beer float using Not Your Father’s Root Beer so I had to try it! I kept sipping on the root beer and I finally had to pour it over the vanilla ice cream before there wasn’t any left ha. It tastes exactly like root beer and I actually couldn’t taste the alcohol flavor until I mixed it with the ice cream. Definitely going to make more of these as well.

Tuna Noodle Casserole

I didn’t save the recipe and I’ve deleted the recipe on my Pinterest Board because I didn’t care for it. The penne was hard because you had to bake it and the tuna overpowered the sauce.IMG_4744

Beefy Cheesy Tortellini Bake

This was really good and I will definitely make this recipe again.

 

Next I made Pesto Alfredo Tortellini with smoked sausage….I’ve been on a tortellini kick. The recipe is from Belle of the Kitchen’s Pinterest page.

I tried a Philly Cheesesteak Casserole in the crockpot and it was ok.

The latest recipe I tried was Crockpot Fajitas and it was delicious! I added sour cream and guacamole to mine. I got it from Family Fresh Meal’s Pinterest Page and it was really easy!

Recipes I’ve tried lately

Standard


Chili Cheese Hotdog Caserole!

It’s very good and bad for you at the same time especially if you add more carbs as a side, which I did.

Recipe:

Ham and Cheese Tortellini 


This was ok. The ham flavor wasn’t strong and the cheese seemed to clump in certain spots.


Chicken Crescent Roll Casserole


This was delicious, easy, and I’ll definitely make it again.

I used rotisserie chicken and the recipe calls for crescent rolls, can of cream of chicken soup and shredded cheddar.

Weekly Recap #7

Standard

I needed to use my Petco rewards before they expired and they had double points on Leaps & Bounds toys so Phoebe got a Park Ranger Moose 🙂 I love their whole camping woodland creatures theme!! I wanted to get her the s’mores toy but it was about as big as she is so that was a no go. 

  
 

hanging out with her toys


My friend, her husband, and I finally tried the new Manola Fajita Factory. It was good but I can’t say the same for the margaritas. 
 

Pineapple Fajita


   

 Phoebe was lacking motivation and so was I.

     My little guard dog was growling and barking at an unknown intruder lol.

   
A wren family has taken up residency in my bird house

Another bird made a nest behind my light  

I’m so happy my wisteria has bloomed and for my pug model.  

Sunday morning was a beautiful  morning to have coffee outside.

My friends and I went to the new Cuban place and oh my gosh do they give you a lot of food!

I wanted to get a Cubano sandwich but I felt that was playing it too safe so I went with the Chicken Milanese, which is their version of Chicken Parmesan. It came with black rice and plantains neither of which I have ever had. I normally hate rice but I actually liked the black rice and the plantains.

My friends got Imperial Rice that serves 2 but actually could serve 4!! It has yellow rice, sweet peas, ham, mayonnaise and a cheese top. I tried a few bites and this was delicious as well! I’ll definitely go back!

  
For dinner I made Cheesy Sausage Tortellini, garlic bread, and crescent rolls filled with Cadbury caramel eggs!

   
 
I found out after I had already started making the crescent rolls that I was supposed to use the regular caramel eggs but I used the minis. They were good but there was more crescent roll then chocolate and caramel. Next time I’ll use the correct ones lol.
