Weeknight Dinner Rolls


I am not a big bread maker.  It takes too long to make homemade bread, and I just don't have hours to wait during the week. I stumbled across this recipe on Pinterest for quick yeast rolls and decided to give it a shot.

Wow!  These were a huge hit.  Chicken Legs was amazed at how quick and easy these rolls were.   He tells everyone about them - seriously!  Not only are they super quick and easy, they taste great!  They are especially tasty slathered with honey butter. Give them a try tonight; I promise you won't be disappointed.

Chocolate Toffee Cake


This cake is uh-mazing!  It is basically a chocolate version of our favorite Butterfinger Cake.  Just like the Butterfinger Cake, this Chocolate Toffee Cake is simple to make and is super delicious.  I made this over the weekend and had to take the leftovers to work so we didn't eat it all ourselves.  It was gone in no time.  This cake is a real crowd pleaser!

Meatball and Ricotta Pizza



If you follow my blog, you know that pizza is one of my all-time favorite foods.  I could eat it every day and never get tired of it  This pizza was inspired by our recent trip to Vegas.  I saw this on the menu at one of the places we ate lunch and made a note to whip it up when we got home.

OMG - delicious!!  I absolutely loved this pizza - especially the creamy ricotta on top.  I used my favorite weeknight pizza dough recipe and some frozen meatballs because I was out of homemade meatballs.  This is a new favorite!

Crescent Taco Bake


Mexican casseroles are one of our favorite weeknight meals.  This recipe uses crescent rolls and Velveeta cheese - YUM!  It was super easy to make and tasted fantastic.  I especially loved all the ooey gooey cheese.  We topped our taco bake with some sour cream, salsa and jalapeños for a little extra kick.  The only change I might make next time is to mix the Velveeta into the meat mixture and add some black beans.

Lasagna Biscuit Cups


Lasagna is one of my all-time favorite foods, but it isn't an easy weeknight meal.  My homemade lasagna is usually an all-day process, so I came up with this quick alternative.  These lasagna biscuit cups have all the flavor of lasagna without all the work.  I used cottage cheese in this dish, but you can substitute ricotta cheese if you aren't a cottage cheese fan.  We both absolutely loved this dish.  I could have eaten the whole batch by myself.  They were also good reheated for lunch the next day.

Ham & Gruyere Quiche


Believe it or not, Chicken Legs is a huge quiche fan.  I haven't made one in a while, so I thought this was the perfect way to use up the last bit of our Easter ham.  This quiche was amazing!  It was light and fluffy and wonderfully creamy.  Chicken Legs said he could have eaten the whole thing himself.  Don't worry - he didn't.  We had some leftover for lunch the next day and it was even better! Chicken Legs has requested that I make two quiches next time so we have plenty of leftovers.

Dijon Balsamic Grilled Chicken


This is another Tasty Kitchen find.  It was so good that we had it twice in one week. You can taste the dijon mustard, so if you aren't a fan, you might want to cut the mustard in half.  This marinade was very simple to make.  I had everything in the pantry to make it - no special trip to the grocery store required!  The recipe below makes enough for 10-12 chicken breasts.  We used this marinade on chicken, but we will be trying it on a pork tenderloin next time.

Mushroom Swiss Burgers


We had some leftover baby swiss cheese from the Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole, and I decided to make these mushroom swiss burgers.  I sautéed the mushrooms while Chicken Legs grilled the burgers.  We used the same burger recipe from our Cadillac Burger and they tasted delicious!  Chicken Legs loves mushrooms and he especially loved them on this burger.  We always keep some frozen hamburger patties in the freezer for a quick weeknight meal.

Creamy No-Boil Macaroni and Cheese


Mac and cheese is one of my favorite side dishes.  I believe we actually consider it to be a vegetable in the South.  I found this recipe on the New York Times website.  It caught my eye because it uses cottage cheese and it doesn't require the noodles to be precooked.  I mixed up the cheese mixture the night before and just added the noodles right before I baked it.  It was so simple to make and it tasted delicious!  It tasted just like Southern macaroni and cheese is suppose to taste.  Don't worry if you don't like cottage cheese; I couldn't taste it.  It just added a really nice creaminess to the whole dish.

Oreo Pudding Chocolate Chip Cookies


Chocolate chip cookies are a staple in our house.  We both love them.  I have several favorite recipes, one of which is made with vanilla pudding.  I decided to switch up the pudding flavor and try Oreo pudding.  They were delicious!  Firm on the outside and soft on the inside; or as I like to say - perfect!  I used chocolate chips, but I think next time I will use a mixture of white and chocolate chips to keep with the Oreo theme.
