    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…
