Skillet Cheesy Chicken & Rice {Foodie Friday}

What is funny about this recipe is that I found this recipe in an ad for Cream of Chicken Soup. I make my own, so I just stole the recipe ;) We made a couple of tweaks to the original version, but this is a fast one skillet dinner. Less dishes makes this taste even better.

Cream of Chicken Condensed Soup {Foodie Friday}

I don’t know exactly how it happened, but I have suddenly become a DIYer. Even though my mom cooked a lot while we were growing up, we still ate a lot of processed foods. Cream of Chicken Soup is something that I have made a couple of times on my own for use in recipes (i.e. mom’s beef stroganoff), but I thought it was time to make it official. I think you will agree that it’s easy to make and takes a whole lot better than the stuff out of the can.

Pumpkin Cheesecake Crumble Bars {Foodie Friday}

You know why fall is my favorite season, right? It’s because I get to make all the pumpkin goodies I want.

Creamy Fettuccine with Ham and Peas {Foodie Friday}

Photo Updated 4.22.14
For the longest time we had alfredo out of a jar. As you can imagine, it was never very good. I tried a couple of different recipes, some regular, others claiming to be on the lighter side, but I was never satisfied. I wanted good Fettuccine alfredo, rich, creamy and decadent. Well, folks, I finally found it! This recipe has ham and peas, but the base is the same, add chicken or broccoli. Whatever your heart desires.

Pasta with Chickpeas and Broccoli {Foodie Friday}

In love. That is how I would describe my relationship with this dish. Easy to make, decently healthy and super yummy. My sister would make a dish like this with chicken instead of chickpeas. If you like garlic, I would suggest adding a touch more, otherwise, STUPENDOUS!!

Caroline is TWO Sweet

Well they say better late than never, so I hope you agree. Now that you are all in a sugar coma from Halloween, I know all you want to do is look at some more yummy goodness!!

Caroline's birthday party was in January, and I am just getting around to posting. Geez. It's basically time to start the planning for the next party. Can you believe she is going to be 3 in 2 months already! Dang!
And I thought I knew exactly what I was going to do for her party until I ended up pregnant with twins. Now I am thinking I will be too miserable to want to deal with it in January. Anyway, back to the party.

The theme was "Two Sweet" and we had it at my MIL's house.
It's the perfect theme since her name is Caroline and she is pretty darn sweet.
