• Bacon Green Bean Casserole

    Over the years I have come to the conclusion that you are either a fan of green bean casserole or you are not…it’s really that simple.  I have always landed on the not a fan side of this debate but my brother, James, is a HUGE fan and asks for it every holiday…but this year it was time to take it to the next level. Green Bean Casserole like no other  Most of the time my sis-in-laws mom will make it for him, but this time I decided to take on his request but to make it in a way that I (and the other non-lovers) would love as well.…

  • Chicken & Gnocchi Bake

    I have a gnocchi confession… I am secretly obsessed with it!  I like it all sorts of ways, with all sorts of things but this bake is a perfect option for a yummy, comforting weeknight dinner.  A LITTLE CHICKEN TALK I have recently become a BIG, BIG fan of chicken thighs.  I am literally using them every week.  Sometimes I just roast them up and pair them with a quick salad and veggie and sometimes I use them in a  casserole… LIEK THIS ONE! I always sear them in a pan.  This not only adds some great color to the dish but also a TON of flavor.  I also make…

  • Skillet Chicken Enchiladas

    Skillet Chicken Enchiladas are the perfect quick fix dinner and I am all about a quick fix dinner.  After coming home from work I defiantly love the idea of dinner being ready in less than 45 minutes.   One Pan and DONE! Everything for this recipe is all done in one skillet,  yes you read that right ONE SKILLET!  You make the sauce, cook the chicken and finish it all in one skillet.  That means only one skillet to clean and tons of flavor being created.   Make sure you use a high side skillet and not a shallow skillet… it will bubble over once you add in the tortillas…

  • KETO Poblano Chicken Casserole

    Are you a fan of stuffed jalapeños?  I AM and this KETO Poblano Chicken Casserole is everything you love about a stuffed jalapeño and MORE! Starting with Chicken! For the sake of ease I used a rotisserie chicken.  I just love how easy a rotisserie chicken can make dinner.  If you do not have one on hand, or don’t love them like I do you can use 4-5 cooked chicken breasts, and just shred them up.   Oh the sauce! The delicious sauce is a wonderful combo of cream cheese, heavy cream, garlic, chicken stock and some spices.  It is loaded with tons of FLAVOR and is so easy you…

  • Green Chile Tettrazini

    It is NO secret that I love me a good casserole and this casserole does NOT disappoint.  It has everything you love from a traditional rich and creamy tettrazni but with a little extra something. Full disclosure, obviously this is NOT keto…but last week was a rough one for me and some comfort food was much needed and for me a casserole screams comfort. Traditional…Sorta This tettrazini recipe starts like most others.  There is chicken, pasta, cream of something soup, sour cream and cheese.  What makes this recipe different is the addition of green chilies and some extra spices.   To help make it a little easier I used a…

Cauliflower Surprise! To add a little something extra to this pretty traditional taco casserole I started with a cream cheese cauliflower rice layer.  I love the creaminess and richness it adds to each bite while keeping it all super KETO friendly.   Don’t worry though… the cauliflower layer will not add a ton of work.  You can cook it up super fast in a skillet and then stir in the…

    Ok it is official I am a LOVER of Cauliflower.  I love this  Chicken and Cauliflower Casserole and the Mexican Cauliflower Rice  but this loaded casserole is my FAVORITE! Roasting is key There are a ton of loaded cauliflower casseroles on pinterest and they all sound amazing but for me cauliflower is at its best when it is roasted.  I love the little bits of charred cauliflower with the cheese and bacon in this casserole.  The extra step of roasting adds another layer of flavor this already delicious casserole.  Bacon, please A loaded casserole would not be loaded without the addition of bacon.  Right?  I mean the best loaded baked…

  • Bacon Cheeseburger Casserole (KETO/Low Carb)

    Who doesn’t love a good casserole.  I know I do.  They are my comfort food and this Bacon Cheeseburger has everything a good casserole should have, and then some. Bacon, please This casserole all starts with bacon.  I used 1/2 lb of bacon and cut the strips into small pieces and then cooked it all in a large skillet.  If you leftover bacon you can use it, but I love how the bacon flavor becomes the base of the casserole when you cook it in the same skillet as the meat. The bacon adds so much flavor and really elevates this casserole to the next level.  My moms hamburger casserole…

Super Easy To make this…
