Roasted Garlic and Tomato Pasta

This is a pasta recipe I saw on one of the Rachel Ray shows. She used it as a side dish to go along with some steaks but I used it as the main dish. I thought it was awesome, Sam thought it was just okay. He thought it needed some meat. Whats your opinion?

Cheesy Garlic Bread Swirls

Oh my goodness! I had a lot of time on my hands yesterday so I was flipping through my new cook book from the blog "Our Best Bites" and came across these really yummy looking rolls. They turned out amazing! (That last link for the rolls has step by step pictures of what you are doing!)
They have a cheesy filling that melts in your mouth as soon as you bite into them! Or have fun unrolling them and have cheesy deliciousness in every bite!

Mexican Chicken Pizza

I was a little skeptical to try this pizza only for the fact that it didn't have any sauce on it. I'll tell you what though, the crust was soooo yummy. I will definitely use this crust as my "go-to" fast crust.
~Update~ I DO always use this as my go to crust now. Why you may ask...because it doesn't have to wait to rise for very long. Its a lot faster then most other recipes I have found. It isn't your typical bready crust. It is a lot more dense and crunchy, but I love it.

Cream Puffs

I LOVE CREAM PUFFS!!!! I think I could eat an entire batch of these things by myself, easily. :)
They are so versatile to. You can fill them with chicken salad, tuna salad, egg salad, OR turn them into a dessert like I like to do and fill it with different flavors of pudding.

Chicken Merango

I decided to break out some of my older recipes that I haven't made in a while. Some of the classic recipes that my mom would make for me. This was one of those recipes that we would have as a go-to meal because we would normally have all these ingredients on hand. I've really been enjoying making some of these "my mamma used to make me" meals.

Onion Pie

Yes. It is a pie made of onions. AND you know what, I LOVE IT! I almost always end up eating this entire pie myself, which you know what, is FINE by me. If you love onions then you should give this a try. This is a recipe that I grew up with. My mom would make this every time we had meatloaf.

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

We eat a lot of tilapia so this is a new recipe I found. It was sooooo yummy. Sam decided this was his new favorite way to eat tilapia. Which is kinda funny because thats what he said about the last tilapia recipe I found lol.

Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes

I think I could eat these mashed potatoes every day! Course, I am a huge garlic fan so I would just about eat the roasted garlic themselves if Sam wouldn't stop me every time. Mmmm okay just thinking about these is making me almost jump off my soft spot on the couch to make some, even though it is way past dinner time. Adding the roasted garlic to these potatoes gives it such a better flavor then simply boiling the garlic in with the potatoes while they are cooking.

Roasted Chicken Au Jus

I really enjoy trying out the recipes that are on the back of soup cans or soup mixes. So far I don't think I have come across one that I didn't like. I know I have a few from Cambells soup on here so I thought I should share a little Lipton as well :)

Golden Citris Broiled Chicken

As I was digging through my recipe box trying to find some more recipes to put on here (yes I am very bored today) I came across one that I haven't made in a while but I absolutely loved. How could I forget about this recipe?! I guess sometimes I get caught up in finding all these new recipes to try out that I forget about some of my older ones that are really good.

Strawberry Soup

In my bountiful baskets this week I had gotten a bin of strawberries and I was really looking forward to making this soup. Unfortunately, I won't get to experience it as soon as I had thought, because when I went to pull them out of my fridge they were all moldy. Slightly disappointed. But I will share the recipe anyway. This recipe actually came for the Mirage Hotel in Las Vegas. I served it at my wedding reception and it was a hit. Its such a refreshing dessert. Enjoy!

More St. Patricks Day Fun

Here are a couple more last minute St. Patricks Day snack ideas.

Yummy Stuffed Burger with Onion Rings

So i had a lot of mushrooms in my fridge that needed to be used and one of my friends suggested mushroom burgers. YUMMY!!! The first thing I thought of was one of the burgers they have at Red Robin. So here is my thrown together version of their mushroom burger.
(I guess I should have cut my burger open so you could see how yummy it looked with the mushrooms all stuffed in there, but you can use your imagination!!)

Super Easy Chicken and Rice

First of all I am well aware that my picture taking abilities are pretty much amazing and I take pictures of food in such an artistic way. LOL. This is a recipe that one of my friends shared with me while living in California. It is just a basic basic basic recipe for chicken and rice. This is my go to chicken and rice recipe, for the fact that its fast, easy, doesn't cost very much money, and tastes great.

Baked Asparagus with Balsamic Butter Sauce

So I have officially become addicted to baked asparagus. All growing up I had always had boiled asparagus, which is fine, but I wanted to try something different. I love how the flavor of baking your vegetables completely changes how it tastes.

Fun St. Patricks Day Ideas

Shamrock Pretzel Snacks

So I thought this was a really cute idea for some kind of St. Patricks day snack. Definitely something kids would think was fun and they could easily help make it as well.

Spring Shells and Cheese

So this recipe was neither quick nor easy. The prep, took a really long time, but you know what?! The end product is really good. So I would save this for maybe a weekend dinner that you have time to stand in the kitchen for a couple of hours! This is a healthier and jazzed up version of your mac-n-cheese. Healthier in the sense that you have fresh herbs, spinach and fresh cheese...rather then that pre-packaged stuff.
