Rootbeer Float Protein Shake

So being in quarantine for two weeks, I started getting a little creative. I’ve been going through Pinterest to kill some time. I kept seeing protein shakes. The only Rootbeer float one called for premier protein shakes, which I do not have, but I do have Lite protein powder. So figured to experiment a little. Hopefully we won’t all be…

Easy Pork Dumplings

Since being stuck home, I have put my cooking skills to work. I also made my 16 year old son help out as well. He’s doing culinary in school, so I need to make him to a little work. These came out amazing. Definitely a keeper, so I figured I would share the two recipes I used. First, making the…

Air Fryer Chicken Parmesan

admin / January 20, 2020

I love chicken parmesan. Since the weather was cold and nasty, I decided to make some marinara sauce as well. There’s nothing better than your own homemade sauce. I’m going to do another post about the simple marinara sauce I make. It takes a total of 1 and a half hours to make, but on with the meal. I had…

Instant Pot Oreo Cheesecake

admin / December 15, 2019

This was the perfect non guilty cheesecake. It wasn’t heavy and it wasn’t so much that it went to waste. My son loved it. I’m going to need to make it again. Recipe is inspired from Sweet and Savory Meals.

Buffalo Chicken Dip

admin / February 9, 2019

I love buffalo chicken dip, but the majority of recipes I see use canned chicken, which is gross. I tried it one time. So this time I made it, I used real chicken breasts. I cooked it in my slow cooker on high for 6 hours, the breast were frozen. I added chicken broth to it as well.

Instant Pot Chicken Teriyaki Bowls

admin / February 2, 2019

I have made this a couple times, my son loves it. We usually never have leftovers and it’s so easy to make. He helps me cut up the veggies. He needs the practice, since he wants to go to culinary school. If you haven’t gotten yourself an Instant Pot, you should. It’s a lifesaver. I originally found this recipe from: Tastes Better From Scratch.

I absolutely love my Instant Pot. I don’t use it as much as I like to though. Searching through Pinterest, I come across this recipe from: 365 Days of Slow Cooking Figured I’d give it a try, my son is a picky eater. So we tried it tonight and he loved it except for the sun dried tomatoes. Still a keeper. If you haven’t…

Skillet Pork Chops with Garlic Mushroom Sauce

I think I’m obsessed with my cast iron skillet. Everything I have cooked in it, just comes out perfect. It’s not dry, it doesn’t heat up the kitchen and with last weeks heat wave it was a life saver. So I looked to Pinterest for some ideas, I came across this recipe. I don’t like to do a lot of things…

Lemon-Spinach Chicken

My son actually found this recipe for us. It is delicious! Making it in my cast iron skillet made it super moist too. What I also liked was the uncooked cherry tomatoes. I have some serious texture issues. I love tomatoes, but I hate them cooked. Leave a comment below and let me know what you think about it.

Beef and Broccoli Ramen

So I finally went out and bought a cast iron skillet. I have to say it’s the best thing I have every bought. I never thought I would ever say cookware is something I would be proud of. I made this recipe in a skillet and it made it so much better. The broccoli was soft and crunchy. My picky…
