These Slow Cooker Buffalo Ranch Pork Chops are ridiculously good. We made them last weekend to eat while watching football, and we just couldn't get enough of them. We served them over some cheddar ranch grits - OMG! I wanted to lick the plate.

There are only 3 ingredients in this Slow Cooker Buffalo Ranch Pork Chops recipe. That includes the pork chops!!! Just dump everything in the slow cooker and dinner is done! We served the pork chops over grits, but you could also serve them with mashed potatoes or noodles. Whatever you prefer!

Just an FYI - for the buffalo sauce in this recipe, I used a bottle of Frank's Wing Sauce. You could also use just regular Frank's Hot Sauce.

We LOVE quiche in our house. Chicken Legs is always requesting quiche for lunch or dinner. I was in the mood for tacos the other night and decided to make a Taco Quiche. OMG! SO good! Taco meat, cheese, salsa mixed into the quiche mixture. We topped with quiche slices with some sour cream, extra salsa and green onions. We went to chow-town on this quiche! YUM!

This Taco Quiche can be made ahead of time and frozen unbaked until you are ready to serve. I like to double this recipe and bake one and freeze one for later. I almost always have a homemade frozen quiche in the freezer for an easy meal. I love pulling one out for an easy weekend breakfast!

This Taco Quiche was a huge hit in our house. We ate it for lunch and the leftovers for dinner the same day. The quiche only takes a few minutes to make and it was a fun twist to taco night!!

Butterfinger Oatmeal Cookies

Butterfinger Oatmeal Cookies - seriously AMAZING cookies! Crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside. I had zero self-control around these cookies! ZERO!!! I ate WAY too many! Shortening, brown sugar, sugar, egg, water, vanilla, flour, salt, baking soda, quick-cook oats and Butterfinger baking bits. TO-DIE-FOR!! Make these ASAP!

Stop what you are doing and gather up the ingredients to make these Butterfinger Oatmeal Cookies. O-M-G! These are to-die-for delicious! Crispy on the outside, chewy on the inside. I probably ate a dozen of these! They are dangerously delicious!

The original recipe uses butterscotch chips. I am not a big fan of butterscotch chips, but I am a HUGE fan of the new Butterfinger baking bits! I decided to swap the butterscotch for Butterfingers and WOW! New favorite cookie!!

These were so good that I had to get them out of the house. I took them over to some friends and they loved them as well. You can freeze the baked cookies and take some out for a snack. You can also freeze the cookie dough and bake fresh cookies when you need a sweet treat. Scoop the dough into balls and freeze them on a cookie sheet. Once they are frozen, toss them in a freeze bag and pull the dough balls out when you need a cookie!

This recipe uses shortening. NO, I haven't made them with butter. You can certainly try and make them that way, but it will change the texture of the cookie. I LOVED the texture of the cookie and have no intention of trying these with butter. They were just too good with the shortening. I'm not the kitchen police, so you can do what you want in your own kitchen.

I love a good crumb cake and this Chocolate Crumb Cake is a new favorite! It is great for breakfast or dessert! The best part about this cake is that it is super easy to make.

The cake was ready for the oven before the oven was preheated!

We ate this Chocolate Crumb Cake for dessert with some vanilla ice cream. Go big or go home, right? It was SO good!! I shared some of the cake with a friend, and she loved it too! This cake would be great if you have overnight guests or an early morning tailgate! It is a real crowd pleaser!

I've been traveling a ton this year, and we haven't really had a chance to eat at our favorite Italian place in town. I was craving a big bowl of their Italian Sausage in Tomato Cream Sauce, so I decided to make my own version at home. OMG! SO good!! It tasted just as good as our favorite restaurant. The best part about this recipe is that it was ready to eat in about 15 minutes! Can't beat that!!!

Italian Sausage in Tomato Cream Sauce is super simple to make. While the pasta is boiling, make the sauce and then just toss it all together. Feel free to add sautéed mushrooms, onions, or peppers. This is a great base recipe to jazz up to your preferences.

We've eaten this Italian Sausage in Tomato Cream Sauce several times over the past few months and just can't seem to get enough of it. Serve this with some garlic bread and a simple salad and you have a restaurant quality meal in 15 minutes!

It also makes a GREAT freezer meal. You can even divide the casserole into two 9-inch pans and bake one and freeze one for later.

I used Italian sausage in this meat sauce. If you aren't a fan of sausage, you can swap it out for ground beef or ground turkey. Either will work great! We topped the casserole with some pepperoni and olives. Feel free to add all of your favorite pizza toppings to the top of the casserole - green peppers, onions, mushrooms. Anything goes!

Perfect for grilling steaks for a crowd! Red wine vinegar, chili sauce, oil, soy sauce, Worcestershire, dry mustard, salt, pepper and garlic. Seriously delicious!!!

As much as I love going to eat at a good steakhouse, I definitely prefer to eat steaks cooked at home on our grill. There is just something about being able to season and grill the steaks on our charcoal grill that really puts them over the top!

Since we love to grill steaks at home, I am always on the hunt for new and flavorful marinades. We have been using this Master Steak Marinade for the past few weeks and we LOVE it! It is seriously delicious.

The best part is that this marinade uses simple ingredients that you probably already have in your pantry. You can whisk up the marinade and refrigerate it until you are ready to cook the steaks. It will keep for several weeks refrigerated in a air-tight container.

I like to let the steaks marinate all day in the refrigerator. I put the steaks in a gallon ziplock bag and pour the marinade over them and pop them in the fridge before breakfast. If you don't have all day, try and let them marinate at least 30 minutes. I subscribe to the "longer the better" philosophy when it comes to marinating meats.

This Master Steak Marinade would be perfect when you fire up the grill for Labor Day or tailgating this fall! Give it a try! I promise you will love it!

I used a rotisserie chicken for the cooked chicken in this Doritos Chicken Taco Salad and it came together in minutes. If you want to make this ahead of time, I would chop everything and then toss in the dressing and Doritos just before serving. This is great for a crowd!

Green beans are a favorite in our house. These Slow Cooker Southern Green Beans are no exception.

This summer we went up to Nashville a couple of times for sporting events. Nashville is our favorite weekend getaway spot. It isn't a far drive and there are SO many great places to eat! I made sure that we tried some new places on each trip. One place was so good, that I made Chicken Legs go back on our most recent trip. We did order different things so I would have lots to show you.

We are going back next month for a football game. I need some recommendations!!! I am thinking about Puckett's for lunch one day. Any fun dinner places we need to check out?!?! Leave me a comment!

This recipe came from my Mom. She found it one of her cookbooks and sent me the recipe. She said that Plain Chicken readers needed this recipe! This Mac & Cheese Pasta Salad starts with a box of Kraft Macaroni and Cheese. I know what you are thinking. I was thinking it too, BUT this is really, really good! We were both shocked at how delicious this Mac & Cheese Pasta Salad tasted.

This Mac & Cheese Pasta Salad is super easy to make and would be great for any upcoming tailgates or Labor Day cookouts. You can make this a day in advance and refrigerate the pasta salad until you are ready to serve. I promise this will be the first thing to go! It is crazy good!!! We ate this with lunch two days in a row. Who knew that a childhood favorite could be transformed into the BEST pasta salad EVER!

This Grilled Tomato Basil Chicken is one of my favorite ways to use up all the fresh basil in my herb garden. We made this several times over the past few months, and we just can't seem to get enough of it. It is packed full of delicious flavor!!! Fresh tomatoes, fresh basil, balsamic vinegar, garlic - YUM!

We made the whole recipe and had some leftover chicken. We ate the leftovers tossed in some pasta and sauce. OMG! It might have tasted better the second time around. I am getting hungry just thinking about this yummy chicken!!

Don't forget to pound your chicken breasts to an even thickness before marinating. Pounding your chicken keeps the chicken from drying out when you grill. We pound the chicken in a ziplock bag and then pour the marinade over it. Use a meat mallet or rolling pin to pound that hump out!

We let the chicken marinate overnight for maximum flavor. If you don't have that long, just let it hang out in the marinade at least an hour.
