Cheesy Garlic Ranch Pull Apart Rolls

Monday, May 25, 2020
I hope you all are still hanging in there amongst the impacts of COVID 19. Depending on the state you're in, you may be noticing that some places are beginning to loosen the rules of social distancing and reopening businesses. Here in SC, some businesses have reopened. However, most places will only allow a few customers at a time. 

Me, on the other hand, my family and I are still easing back into the world. We're still eating primarily at home and only leaving the house for work and necessities. But, I have another simple recipe I think you guys will enjoy!

I found something similar on Tik Tok where the user (can't remember their name) created cinnamon sugar pull-apart rolls. I liked the concept of it and decided that I would try it with my two favorite combos...garlic and ranch.

Cauliflower Mac and Cheese

Wednesday, April 29, 2020
How are we all doing during quarantine? I surely hope you all are staying safe. This has been such a critical time for our world, and I empathize deeply with those that are suffering. All I can say is please stay safe, protect yourself, and protect others.

OK. Now, on to this recipe.

Cauliflower Mac and Cheese

Cauliflower Mac and Cheese

Cauliflower Mac and Cheese

Mac and cheese have been one of those side dishes that I've watched my mother prepare several times, but never really made it for myself. Her mac and cheese is just so amazing I've been too intimidated to make my own. But I feel I have watched her make it enough that I know the gist of what she uses to prepare it.

Mac and cheese is NOT healthy at all. Well, at least not this version of it.

I made this Cauliflower Mac and Cheese in hopes that I could take a break from pasta, but let's be honest...even with the added vegetables this dish still isn't the healthiest. But, it tastes so damn good.

What Did I Use

Basically, I prepared this Cauliflower Mac and Cheese similarly to how I've seen my mother prepare her dish. I used frozen cauliflower (about two bags of 12 oz), shredded cheddar cheese blend, milk, a crap ton of butter, and salt and pepper to taste.

I told you this wasn't healthy.

My mom actually likes to use block cheese, but I opted to use the shredded cheese blend. The shredded cheese blend has three types of cheese (sharp and mild cheddar, and monterey cheese). I liked having the variety of cheese added to this as it gives it a powerful flavor.

You can always add more cheese to this if you like. I personally think having the right balance between cauliflower and cheese really sets the dish. There's just the right amount of cauliflower for crunch and cheese in between.

1. Preheat your oven to 400°F
2. On an oven sheet, roast your cauliflower for approximately 20 minutes to remove the moisture
3. Once cauliflower has roasted move to a baking dish
4. Add in your milk, melted butter, and one cup of cheese
4. Add salt and pepper, and stir everything together until evenly mixed
5. Add to your oven and allow to bake for 30-40 minutes covered

8. Remove from oven and allow to cool before serving

Notes
You can use a plant-based milk if you like
Block cheese works just as fine. I recommend one or two blocks for this dish
If you prefer fresh cauliflower, one head should do the trick

Homemade Strawberry Ice Cream

Sunday, April 5, 2020
When I was in the second grade, I remember my teacher dividing us into sections to make our own chocolate ice cream. I don't remember what all we used to make it. I'm assuming not much because it was done in a classroom, but what I do remember is that it was disgusting.

From that point on I never had an interest in making my own ice cream. I would see several recipes sharing their special ice cream recipe using just a few ingredients and even then, I still wasn't into making my own ice cream.

Well, look at how the tables have turned.

Homemade Strawberry Ice Cream

Homemade Strawberry Ice Cream


As you guys know, I often create my own smoothies. It took some time before realizing that making homemade ice cream isn't all that different from smoothies.

I had a craving for strawberry ice cream and hated the idea of leaving home to get it. So, I used what I had in hand.

What I Used

It's pretty simple. You have your fruit. You have your liquid and sweetener. And bringing everything all together, you have your blender. I opted to use my food processor for this time around, but you can use either of the two and still get great results.

I used about a cup of chopped strawberries, 3 frozen bananas, and about 2/3 cup of milk. I wanted to use as little liquid as possible for this as I wanted to make sure this would have an ice cream consistency.

The frozen bananas gave this some sweetness without having to add extra sugars. But I opted to add in some honey for a little extra sweetness. But honestly, I think it would have been just fine without it.

2. Pulse until bananas and strawberries are beginning to break up
3. You may have to take a spoon to help mix everything together
4. Continue blending until a smooth consistency
5. Allow to chill in the freezer for another hour or two before serving

Notes
Try to avoid using as much liquid as possible so that it will have an ice cream texture

Easiest Grab and Go Overnight Oats

Wednesday, April 1, 2020
Overnight oats are one of those recipes you can make the night prior and it's ready to grab the following morning. It's super fast and easy to prepare, which makes it the perfect breakfast option for busy mornings.

I do believe that I've found my favorite way to prepare overnight oats. Ever since I created my first overnight oat recipe (Blueberry Cinnamon Overnight Oats) I haven't deviated too far away from the ingredients I use to make it.

Easiest Grab and Go Overnight Oats

Easiest Grab and Go Overnight Oats

I use rolled oats, almond milk, peanut butter, a little yogurt, and I top with fruit. That's it! I've found that using this combo has allowed me to use whatever topping I choose and it tastes amazing every time.

For this overnight recipe, in particular, I chose to top it off with blackberries and strawberries. You can for sure use whatever fruit toppings you prefer, but I love the sweet bitterness from these berries in particular.

To give some extra sweetness, you can add a little bit of honey, maple or agave syrup. It definitely helps even out the salty, bitter, and sweet tastes in this overnight oat recipe. It kind of reminds me of eating a granola bar with dried fruit in it.

Let me know if you gave this recipe a try.

Creamy Cucumber Tomato Pasta Salad

Tuesday, March 31, 2020
When I first started my food blog, one of the first recipes I shared was my Zesty Italian Pasta Salad. Pasta Salad is one of those recipes that if I had to bring a small dish for a gathering, it's my go-to. I could prepare it the night prior and for little to nothing.

This creamy cucumber tomato pasta salad is very similar to the zesty salad. The major difference is the kind of dressing that I used.

Creamy Cucumber Tomato Pasta Salad

What Did I Use

I sent my husband to the grocery store to grab my usual zesty Italian salad dressing, but with the stores low in stock due to the impacts of COVID-19 and social distancing, my favorite salad dressing wasn't available. 

No worries though. I was able to make a different spin to this salad and it actually turned out great. 

The great part about pasta salad is you can add whatever you like. If you want to get fancy you can include some peas, broccoli, olives, or even carrots to really make this a vegetable loaded pasta salad. For this salad, however, I kept it simple and added tomatoes and cucumbers. When I say that this a cheap dish, I mean that.

I took my penne noodles, cooked them, allowed them to cool, chopped up my veggies, and then mixed everything together. I refrigerated for a few hours and then it was ready to serve.

You can serve this with whatever tickles your fancy. Grilled chicken, meatballs, burgers or whatever sandwich you'd like is what I find this best served with. But to be completely honest, I've also eaten this as a meal in itself.

Lazy Meat-Free Baked Ziti

Sunday, March 22, 2020
Who else is going stir crazy during this time of social distancing due to COVID-19?

I hope that you all are being safe. This has been a scary time for our country as it feels one moment we're receiving an influx of information, but nothing very consistent. The shelves in the stores are empty, people have taken loads of toilet paper (still trying to understand that one), and everyone is advised to work from home if they can. It's been a lot to take in.

I've been making sure I can create simple meals to feed my family now that we're advised to stay home. Although some places are allowing carry-out, I've found it best to prepare our meals at home to avoid going out as much as possible.

I'm not entirely sure I could even call this a recipe because it is so easy. It only took me about 30 minutes to prepare this dish, and we had tons for leftovers; which ultimately served its purpose.

WHAT DO YOU NEED

I haven't shared a pasta dish in quite some time. But this lazy meat-free baked ziti is always delicious. There's literally no way to mess up this meal.

All you'll need is ziti pasta noodles, your favorite marinara sauce, and beefless crumbles. I prefer to use the Gardein Beefless Crumbles brand, but there are several others you can choose from. Or, if you rather avoid the soy, you can opt to leave this piece out.

You can swap the beefless crumbles out for lentils or anything that will give you a "beefy" texture.

For spices, I love using Italian seasoning and garlic powder. I feel you can't use enough of this stuff. It always adds some extra zing to this dish that my family loves. If you've been following me for a while, then you already know that I don't use a ton of salt for seasoning. However, you can always add as much or as little as you'd like in this dish.

This meal is so customizable to your liking.

And oh my!!! How could I forget about cheese!!!! 

The cheese brought this dish all together. I used a fiesta blend sold at Walmart, but you can use whichever cheese you prefer.

Lazy Meat-Free Baked Ziti

Lazy Meat-Free Baked Ziti

WHAT DO I DO

I like to break this part down into four easy steps. Cook noodles, add in beefless crumbles with marinara sauce, mix in together, put it in the oven. 

That's it. 

This is probably the simplest dish anyone could ever make. But I think it's nice to find a simple meal that takes a spin on being meat-free. 

This Baked Ziti is the perfect family dinner with all of the craziness going on. My small family of three was able to eat from this dish multiple times. It's one of those meals that regardless of how many times you eat it, you can't get tired from it. 

Add in your favorite spices and voila! You just fed your family the best dinner ever.

Vegetable Fried Rice

Monday, March 9, 2020
Recently, my husband and I have been craving takeout food. But, we're trying very hard to cut back on how often we're eating out. I'm a sucker for pizza, burgers, and hibachi but this vegetable fried rice is the perfect fix to kick that craving.

Vegetable Fried Rice


WHAT DO I NEED

I used to wonder what made fried rice taste so good. What's the special sauce? What do they use to give it that extra zing? But honestly, fried rice is probably the simplest and inexpensive meal you can make.

All I used was cooked rice, a bag of frozen mixed vegetables, eggs, and the special sauce: soy sauce.

You can add a ton more vegetables to this if you like. I kept it simple and used the green peas and carrots combination. I've seen some recipes that have added onions, broccoli, and even spring onions. It's what you make it.

WHAT DO I DO

I've found that this recipe works best with day-old cooked rice, but you can also use cooked rice the same day.

Creating this dish is pretty simple. You're adding the cooked rice to your skillet or wok, throwing in your veggies, pour on your soy sauce, and there you have. Vegetable Fried Rice!

The one thing I wish I did differently with this recipe was fried the egg first. I mixed the egg into the rice too soon, and I believe the rice lacked that extra texture because of this. What I would recommend is cooking the eggs in a separate pan beforehand and then adding in later.

This way, you'll get more egg texture. But nonetheless, it still turned out really good despite doing it the other way as well.

If you want to get real fancy with this, you can purchase white sauce from your grocery store. Or, if you have a great recipe, you can create your own.

4. Add in your cooked rice, stirring until everything is mixed
5. Add in your cooked scrambled eggs stirring everything together

Best Vegetarian Chili

Sunday, February 23, 2020
Can you believe we're closing out of February and entering into March? Time flies. I'm sure you all have noticed a change in the recipe posts. Well, we had to do a bit of transitioning the site over to a new platform; giving it a new look and new feel.

I've been back and forth on the best way to deliver recipes for you all and decided that the site worked best when it was simple. But nonetheless, thank you guys for keeping up with the blog and sticking around as we made some adjustments.

Now on to this chili.

I've been sitting on this one for a while. I created this recipe a couple months ago, but while we were transitioning the site over I figured it would be best to save this gem for a better time.

Best Vegetarian Chili


This vegetarian chili is the best I've ever had. I went to a gathering a couple months back and they offered a meat-free chili. I was happy to see that there was an alternative, but let's just say the chili wasn't great. First, it was sweet. Second, it lacked spice. I mean, isn't that the point of a chili.

I like a chili that has some spice, a lot of beans, and a tad of sweetness from the corn. Anything outside of that is just a no for me.

For me, I like to include the beefless crumbles from Gardein to give this chili a bit more texture. Of course, you can always opt-out of adding the crumbles. However, I would suggest adding more variety of beans (pinto beans, kidney beans,) or even lentils to thicken this chili up if the meat substitute isn't your thing.

It doesn't require a ton of ingredients. Chili is one of those meals that you can literally make it whatever you want to.

Loaded Bomb Biscuits

Sunday, January 19, 2020
I've said it several times before, breakfast food is my favorite meal of the day. Looking back on the recipes I've shared over time I noticed that I share a lot of breakfast recipes. There's just something about starting your day with a good ass meal. And you can't go wrong with these Loaded Bomb Biscuits.

Loaded Bomb Biscuits

These are so simple I'm not even sure I should call it a recipe (OK, I say that a lot too). Sometimes I get a little bored with the usual go-to meals so I try to put a spin on them. I had a batch of those Pillsbury Biscuits and decided I wanted to do something a little different with them. That's right. These are not your mama's regular old boring biscuits.

WHAT DID I USE

To keep these pretty simple, I went with the basics. I added eggs, cheese, and bell peppers. You can always put your own spin to this and add whatever else it is that you'd like. You can get away with adding mushrooms, onions, or even jalapenos if you're looking for an extra kick.

I used 4 eggs. However, I think 4 eggs was a bit much as not all of the filling would fit into the biscuits while cooking. I'd recommend going with three. Pillsbury has several biscuit options you can choose from. Whether the honey butter, buttermilk, or the flaky layers it all works the same.

Preparing this is rather simple as well. You would cook your eggs first while your oven preheats. Once eggs are cooked, you would just need to cut a small slit on the side of your biscuits and fill it on up. Add the biscuits to your oven and allow them to cook through until they are a flaky golden brown.

You guys know I like to keep it simple. Breakfast is ready and you have more to go back for seconds.

Super Fast Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Saturday, January 11, 2020
I had a list of recipes I planned to share on the blog for this month and I have to tell you all, this wasn't one of them. Creating this Oatmeal Raisin Cookie was random AF. I wanted an evening treat. Something that was sweet, but not ridiculously sweet. I checked out my pantry and this is what I came up with.

4 Amazing Breakfast Toast Ideas

Sunday, January 5, 2020
I like toast, but toast has never been my fave go to breakfast option. I usually eat it when I'm sitting at Waffle House or if it automatically comes with a breakfast meal I ordered. Sometimes I'll even toast my bread if I want a banging club sandwich.

But for breakfast, toast hasn't been one of those key options for me. Then I started to realize that toast can be much more than just bread, jelly, or some type of flavored cream cheese. You can add so much more on top of your toast, and that's what really makes it a bomb breakfast. 

Since I found that I can jazz up my toast so many different ways, I decided to ask for a toaster for Christmas (thank you awesome husband). He got me a Stainless Steel Four Slice Toaster. Unfortunately I can't find a link to the one he purchased, but this toaster is pretty similar to what he got for me. 

Let's just say we've been some good old toast these last few days! I decided to compile my favorite toast options (since I'm a pro to this now) and share with you.

4 Amazing Breakfast Toast Ideas


4 Amazing Breakfast Toast Ideas


Loaded Avocado and Egg Toast

This style of toast is myfavorite, hence why I listed it first. It's your classic avocado toast with a little extra on top. I like to add in scrambled eggs with cheese, bacon bits, and some chili red flakes on top. This may not be the most original combination, but it's always a plus for me.

What I use:
1/2 avocado
sprinkle of bacon bits
sprinkle of red chili flakes
1 scrambled egg with a sprinkle of shredded cheese

Classic Peanut Butter and Strawberry Toast

I bet you though I would say peanut butter and banana. Now don't get me wrong. Peanut butter and banana is a great combo, but you HAVE to try it with strawberries! And to top it off I added some chia seeds, which is a major superfood with so much nutritional value.

What I Used:
Peanut Butter
Strawberries
Chia Seeds
Honey Wheat Bread

Avocado, Eggs, and Tomato Toast

An oldie, but a goodie. This may not be the most original combination, but it's always a plus for me. I actually like to scramble my eggs with cheese to give iut an extra kick, but you can certainly leave the cheese out if you like.

What I Used:
1/2 avocado
1 scramble egg with a sprinkle of shredded cheese
3-4 grape tomatoes
Honey Wheat Bread

Bananas and Greek Yogurt Toast

This may sound like an odd combination, but it works pretty well if you have the right kind of yogurt. I found that using Greek yogurt makes all the difference when adding to toast. Although I'm sure any kind of yogury would work, I highly recommend a strawberry or vanilla flavored Greek yogurt. 

What I Used:
1 tsp of Strawberry Greek Yogurt
Banana
Honey Wheat Toast
