• Instant Pot Cheesy Cauliflower Potato Soup

    From start to finish in under one hour, this potato soup has a delicious and creamy sauce, soft chunks of potato, and a secret ingredient. I guess if it’s in the name it’s not that secret. On Saturday while we were waiting for the winter storm, I was craving homemade soup. I tried this recipe with the thought that if it doesn’t flop maybe I would share it on the blog. Not only did it not flop, but I couldn’t stop eating it. This soup is the stuff my chunky potato soup dreams are made of!     Chunky vs. Creamy Most of the potato soups I’ve had and loved…

  • Baked Chicken Chimichangas [with Instant Pot Salsa Chicken]

    Baked Chicken Chimichangas [with Instant Pot Salsa Chicken]

    One of my all-time favorite things to order at Mexican restaurants is a Chimichanga. They are filled with a cheesy chicken mixture, fried, and then smothered in queso. Oh man, I haven’t had a good, fried chimichanga in a very long time!     These days while I try to stay away from most fried foods, I don’t stay away from recreating my favorite restaurant dishes at home. When I saw the post that inspired today’s recipe I knew I had to try them (and put my own spin on it, of course).   Today’s recipe calls for pre-cooked chicken and I’ve included the recipe for my Instant Pot Salsa…

  • Skillet Chicken and Spinach Gnocchi | Sam's Dish

    Skillet Chicken and Spinach Gnocchi

    Do you ever have one of those nights where you realize it’s time to sit down for dinner and you still don’t know what you’re going to make?! Please tell me I’m not the only one this happens to.     This recipe came from one of those nights. On this night I took a quick inventory of my kitchen and here’s what I found: Pantry: 1 package of gnocchi Fridge: Leftover cooked chicken Freezer: 1 bag frozen spinach     I thought to myself, I should be able to make these ingredients into a delicious meal and I just needed a quick sauce to pull it all together. I…

  • Chicken and Broccoli Alfredo Stuffed Shells

    I’ve always loved stuffed shells and decided it was past time to make a chicken and broccoli alfredo version. These stuffed shells are filled with tasty chicken, fresh broccoli, and lots of cheesy goodness. And just when you think it couldn’t get any better, it’s covered in a deliciously creamy homemade garlic alfredo sauce. Let’s just call this comfort food.     I love homemade alfredo sauce and today’s recipe comes together in less time than it takes to bring a large pot of water to boil to cook the shells. But if the thought of making homemade sauce intimidates you, go ahead and grab a jar at the grocery…

  • Crunchwrap Supreme

    Today we are talking about a homemade version of a fast food favorite, the Taco Bell Crunchwrap.     Now I think I should start with a confession… I’ve never actually had a “real” crunchwrap. I know, I know. But I have had this homemade version several times and it is delicious!     There are no fancy ingredients here today. Just a flour tortilla layered with ground beef taco meat, which you could definitely sub with ground turkey if you wanted it to be a little lighter, and next comes a layer of shredded cheese, sour cream, AND if you’re feeling adventurous queso. Then comes the magical crunchy layer,…

  • Easy Lasagna Casserole

    I don’t know about you, but I love…LOVE lasagna. And my least favorite part is definitely the time-consuming layering. While today’s recipe isn’t your traditional lasagna (no layering needed) it deserves a place at your dinner table. And let’s just look past the fact that I just professed my love for a cheesy pasta dish. Don’t worry, Mr. Sam, I still think you’re cute and I’ll share my lasagna with you!     When I was growing up my mom found this recipe in a Taste of Home magazine and this casserole found its way to our dinner table often. While the original recipe called for jarred marinara sauce, I…

  • Greek Chicken Marinade

    A couple of months ago I professed my love for these Greek tacos, I still love them, that hasn’t changed. In fact, I’ve been on a complete Greek kick and today we’re talking about a Greek chicken marinade.     One of the things I love about this recipe is that with just a few minutes of prep the night before (or the morning of) and come dinner time you have the foundation for a healthy and delicious meal! I think this chicken would be fabulous grilled, but we haven’t pulled out the grill yet this year. I’ve included directions for baking the chicken on a sheet pan. Which works…

  • Instant Pot Beef Stroganoff

      I’m so excited about the next couple of recipes I have to share with you! I actually had another recipe planned for today, but on Monday when I made this recipe again, I knew it was finally ready for the blog and I couldn’t wait to share it! Let’s start with a little background, I got the Instant Pot Duo 6 Qt on Black Friday – that was 4 months ago. 4 months. I’m sorry it’s taken so long to get an Instant Pot recipe up here on the blog. The truth is, I’m not in love with my Instant Pot. There, I said it. BUT this recipe might…

  • Sheet Pan Garlic Butter Tilapia and Vegetables

    Are sheet pan meals still a thing? Please, please say yes.     Not only does today’s meal qualify as a one pan meal, it is also a 30-minute meal! #score   We try to switch things up and eat fish for dinner every once in a while. But I don’t like fish that tastes fishy or that’s bland and dry. This Sheet Pan Garlic Butter Tilapia is not overly fishy, is full of flavor, and is definitely not dry.   You start with placing your thawed tilapia filets and frozen vegetables on a sheet pan, then you drizzle them with melted butter with minced garlic and grated parmesan.  …
