I'm really excited to share this week's recipes with you. They were all so easy to make and they didn't take long at all. Scott and I both enjoyed them. Plus, most of the recipes made enough for leftovers which was great! Enjoy!
Oh, and if you decide to try any of them, let me and/or the person supplying the recipe know how you like it. If you have to choose me or them, choose them--they supplied these tasty recipes!

Without the Parmesan or All of the Work
I found this recipe at Grace Full Life. I love chicken Parmesan but, honestly, I've never made it because it seems like it would take a long time to make (I know, lame excuse). But, when I saw Kari's recipe title, especially the "without the Parmesan or all of the work" part, I knew I had to try it. Along with that, there were only 4 ingredients! When I made this for dinner, I added a little more seasoning (like oregano), and I also cooked some whole wheat penne pasta to accompany the chicken. It was delicious! I'm keeping this on my go-to list for easy dinners that don't take much time or effort to prepare! Thanks, Kari!
Beef Taco Bake
While exploring the world wide web of blogs last week, I came across this recipe over at Hello Yum! Kristen has all sorts of amazing recipes that she shares and, if I weren't trying to find 100 unique blogs with recipes to try, I would spend a lot more time trying some of hers. This was another easy and really tasty recipe that my husband and I really enjoyed. It took 3 steps total--does it get any easier than that?? It's funny how the pictures make it look like a lasagna. I guess, in a way, it was like a taco lasagna. Thanks so much, Kristen!
Pan Seared Garlic Chicken Thighs
My blog friend, Marilyn, from The Artsy Girl Connection sent me this recipe via email when she saw I was doing this series (which is highly encouraged, by the way). This was a recipe that I just couldn't believe I made on my own. Yes, it was that good. There was so much flavor and it, too, was an easy dish to put together. She walks you through the process and it makes everything so less daunting--especially for someone, like me, who has never pan seared chicken thighs. I'll be using this again soon, perhaps, for a dinner party. Thank you, Marilyn!
Healthy Phyllo Rolls
This recipe came from Good Food Recipes. Wow, with a blog name like that, it's no wonder I have to force myself to look at other blogs to stop drooling over the recipes that are posted. There were so many recipes to choose from, it was really hard to decide. I ended up choosing this recipe because I had extra phyllo sheets from a dish I shared last week. I used red cabbage in my rolls, which is why the filling looks a little darker. DD said they could be served with tomato sauce or ketchup but that it's also great to eat them without sauce. We decided to try them with some sweet and sour sauce and without anything; they were great both ways! Thank you, DD!
Cheesy Chicken and Rice Bake
This recipe came from Cindy at This And That. And, boy, was this tasty. In her instructions, Cindy warned that this would make a lot of food, and it did! But that was alright with us--we love leftovers. The recipe called for 4 cups of cooked brown rice, but I reduced that to 2 cups and I think that worked out well. Cindy gives some tips about what you can do before making this meal to make it a little easier and much quicker to prepare. Thanks so much, Cindy!
Blueberry Dump Cake
The first time I ever tried this dessert was when a friend made it for me while I was stationed in Kansas. It was so good, I thought it must've taken her all day to prepare. When she told me how to make it, I was floored--there's no way something that tastes so good could be that easy. But it was, and it is. Actually, the name says it all, you literally dump all of the ingredients in there! This is my go-to dessert recipe when we have company and I don't have a ton of time to throw an intricate dessert together. The best part is, you can use all sorts of pie fillings for this. I used blueberry this time, but I've used cherry and apple before. I also like to eat mine warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream!
- 1 16 oz. can crushed pineapple
- 1 20 oz.can blueberry (or any type) pie filling
- 1 pkg. yellow cake mix
- 1 stick of butter (sometimes I use less)
- Grease a 9 x 13 inch pan.
- Dump in the pineapple and juice & spreading evenly.
- Pour cherry pie filling over the pineapple & spreading evenly.
- Add dry cake mix evenly over the fruit.
- Slice butter and lay across the top. Do not mix!
- Bake in a 350 degree oven for 1 hour.
