A lot of you have been asking me when I'll get back to blogging again. And truthfully, I have no idea! Moving is a tricky business! We are lucky enough to be able to stay with in-laws who cook for us while we are between houses. However, I have been able to try out some yummy recipes recently that I would love to share with you. No pictures. No ratings. No week-in-a-day strategies. No cost breakdown. Just straight up good food. Enjoy!

Breakfast
Breakfast Pizza
I used to make these for myself when I worked at Pizza Hut in high school/college. It's a great way to use up your hard-boiled Easter eggs!
Servings: 6
Ingredients:
1 lb. Pizza Dough, store bought
1 cup Alfredo Sauce
6 Hard-boiled eggs, diced
2 cups Shredded Cheese - Pizza Blend
6 slices Bacon, cooked and crumbled
Directions:
Prepare pizza dough according to package instructions. Top with Alfredo sauce, eggs, cheese, and bacon. Bake until cheese is brown and bubbly.

Coconut & Mango Parfaits
Servings: 4
Ingredients:
1 Quart Vanilla Yogurt
2 cups diced mango
8 coconut macaroons, crumbled
Lime zest, optional
Directions:
Layer ingredients in parfait glasses. Sprinkle with lime zest, if desired.

Broccoli Cheese Soup
Don't forget to buy a loaf of sourdough for dipping!

Cranberry, Blue Cheese, and Walnut Salad
The dressing is the key here. Wishbone or Kraft Italian dressings just don't cut it.
Top Spring Mix Lettuce with Craisins, Blue Cheese Crumbles, Chopped Walnuts, and Ken's Steakhouse Italian Dressing & Marinade (Cinci folks can also use LaRosa's Italian dressing)


Dinner
Tuscan Shrimp with White Beans
Make sure to buy some crusty bread to soak up the yummy sauce!

Penne with Sausage and Peppers
I basically just used this recipe for the cooking technique. I used regular Italian sausage and substituted a store-bought spicy marinara sauce.

Bourbon Sauce
I used bourbon instead of Jack Daniels and it turned out really well! We ate it on salmon and burgers. Yum!

Honey Cashew Stir Fry

Jess's Grilled Chicken Marinade
This recipe comes from a great friend and totally brings me back to MD summer barbecues!
Ingredients:
1/2 cup Soy Sauce
1/2 cup Mayo
2 tsp. Lemon Juice
2 tsp. Oregano
3 cloves Garlic, minced

Cheesy Chicken Enchiladas Verde
EASY recipe! You can cut calories by swapping out non-fat plain yogurt for the sour cream and cutting back on some of the cheese on top.
