Chicken-n-Rice Stuffed Peppers

Stuffed Pepper 1

Here’s a little number I made up on the go for a delicious and healthy weeknight supper. So you’ve seen Italian stuffed peppers, well what would an “American” version look like? Something like this. A creamy filling of chicken and rice crowned with a gooey dollop of white American cheese. It’s definitely a different combination of flavors, but they come together beautifully.

Cheez-It Chicken

cheez-it chicken 1

As a southern girl, it is my right – nay, my duty – to use copious amounts of cheese in my cooking. For me, this is not a problem. At all. Not only is my favorite food macaroni and cheese, but I really am a very big fan of cheese all-around, as you can tell from the sheer number of posts on this blog that involve cheese.

Dijonnaise Never Looked So Good

Dijon Pork

This is one of my mom’s best dishes. The Creamy Dijon Sauce compliments the tender, juicy pork perfectly. Pork loins have been on sale a lot lately at the grocery store, so I got the chance to make it for myself this week. Mom usually serves this dish with mashed potatoes – so that we can drizzle some extra dijon sauce on top of them! This leftovers are amazing in a sandwich, too.

Carbonara Pizza

Carbonara Pizza

And yet another recipe from last week’s wine tasting. This tasty little dish was a great appetizer and paired nicely with our Da Vinci Chianti Classico. The topping of this pizza is a re-creating of a carbonara pasta dish – complete with pancetta, eggs, and ricotta!

Bell and Boursin Tenderloin

Bells and Boursin

Chicky-Chicky-Parm, Chicky-Chicky-Parm

Chicken Parm

Have I ever mentioned that my brothers are a little bit silly? Yeah, they used to sing “Chicky-Chicky-Parm, Chicky-Chicky-Parm” whenever my mom would make us Chicken Parmesan. And they always did it with this incredibly catchy but annoying rhythm to it. So now I’m cursed because what I think of every time I have Chicken Parmesan!!

Here is an easy and “lighter” (i.e. not fried) version of this dish that you can make in the crock pot. It even came out pretty crispy on the top. Don’t ya just love it when things are easy AND delicious?!

Beannachtaí lá Fhéile Pádraig Duit, A Sheáin Léitheoirí!

Blessings of St. Patrick’s Day to You, Dear Readers!

As I’ve mentioned a few times now, I have a mostly Irish heritage. So today is a fun and festive day in my family when we celebrate with food and friends! Here is what I put in my crock pot this morning. As opposed to a London Broil, I like to call this a Dublin Boil.

Here is what my crock pot probably looks like right now, bubbling away in my kitchen:

Corned beef dublin boil

I can’t wait to get home and enjoy this overflowing, bountiful Irish feast!

Apple-Cheddar Turkey Burgers

Apple-Cheddar Turkey Burgers 1

Here is another of our favorite turkey burgers that hubby and i love to grill up on a mild spring evening. The idea for the grilled granny smiths was inspired by a Bobby Flay recipe that I came across – but we changed the cheese and added some extra flavor to the burger patties. The ingredients may sound like an odd combination but trust me, dear readers – they come together beautifully!

Mediterranean Turkey Burgers

Mediterranean Turkey Burgers 1

Here is one of our favorite dishes to grill when the weather is nice. There have been a few mild evenings this February here in North Georgia – but tonight was not one of them. So we fired up the George Foreman grill instead!
