Loaded Baked Potato and Buffalo Chicken Casserole

Asiago Mashed Potatoes and Broccoli Asiago Mashed Potatoes and Broccoli My husband has been away on a business trip for nine days, and while I surrendered early on to the fact that peanut butter sandwiches and cereal would be my new meals, that’s not been the case at all. I’ve had dinner with neighbors, gone out with friends, and cooked plenty for myself. One thing that I’ve made sure to do, though, has been comfort myself with a warm homemade meal. This delicious side dish is about as versatile as it gets, and is also a great way to get kids to scarf down some veggies! Print Save Ingredients: 2 medium potatoes, peeled if you prefer 1 cup broccoli florets, fresh or frozen 2 Tbsp. butter 1/4 cup heavy cream 1/2 tsp. salt 1/4 tsp. pepper 1/4 tsp. garlic powder 1/4 cup freshly grated asiago Directions: Bring slightly salted water to a boil in a medium pot. Peel potatoes or leave skins on, and cut into 1/2-inch chunks. Add asiago cheese. Enjoy!

Simple Deep Dish Pizza Pie, pie, I made you a pie. A pie on the fly. Without any ryyyeee! Sorry. I have never really been a deep dish kind of girl. However, after recently getting the urge to go deep dish on you guys, I did a quick Facebook survey to see if you’d prefer something savory or sweet. Most deep dish pies involve some super buttery, complicated crust that I honestly don’t have the time or energy or desire to make. I like my crust to taste like crust, not a buttery dinner roll. Once you get past the complicated part of a deep dish pizza, namely the crust, it’s quite simple. You get a round pan or cast iron, and rub it with olive oil. Boom. This pie was SO SO good! Despite being butter free it tasted absolutely decadent thanks to the layers of cheese, sauce and roasted veggies. I could’ve eaten the whole thing, probably, except that my belly could only hold two small pieces. With a crust prepared ahead of time (or snagging a quality store-bought) this pie comes together in about 45 minutes. Serves: 4

Hash Brown Wrapped Eggs It's been hard for me to switch gears from the whole "Stuffed" concept. It's too late to get this guy into the book, so here it is, Stuffed DVD special features! This is a play on a scotch egg, but also a Peruvian dish called papas rellenas. Roast the potatoes until tender. Mix with some flour, salt, herbs, and spices. Soft boil some eggs using this method. The potato mixture is mashed and ready. With well floured hands and surface, spread out some potato and roll it around your egg. Perfect. Fry em up until browned all around. Just another potato... With a suprise inside! Wait for it... Pop a little sriracha on this thing and it will be the best breakfast you have had in months! Baked Buffalo Chicken Pasta Can you keep a secret? Last night I went to a karate slash pilates slash bootcamp-ish slash heart attack class. I know. Your face? Your expression you are wearing right now? Anyway. All I could think of during this class was cheese. After flinging myself through the front door following my uncoordinated attempt at unarmed combat and eating four handfuls of peanut butter stuffed pretzels (I hear they are excellent for muscle recovery. write that down.), it dawned on me that peanut butter pretzels do not a dinner make. Then I remembered the buffalo chicken mac sitting in the fridge and decided it qualified as a post-workout recovery meal. Uh… wait a minute. This is sort of like mac and cheese. But guess what? I don’t care what you call it. Baked Buffalo Chicken Pasta serves 4-6 1 pound pasta (I used whole wheat orecchiette) 3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cooked and cut into chunks 1 tablespoon butter 1 tablespoon flour 1 1/2 cups milk 1/3 cup buffalo wing sauce 1/3 cup panko bread crumbs

Green Mac and Cheese Mac and cheese is the ultimate comfort meal for Mandi and me. We make it when it has been a rough day, or on a Sunday night to relax. It is very easy to make, super addicting when you eat it, and the best thing is there are always leftovers to bring in to work for lunch. We wanted to make some a few days ago so I looked at the site to see what Mac and cheeses I have done on here to make sure we made something different I would be able to post. I was surprised to find only 2 (full) mac and cheese recipes! Pretty basil flower. We are using the tops of broccoli in this meal, but don't toss out that beautiful stalk! This is some sausage I had in the freezer. A food processor would be better, but I was able to blend this up well after a few times of shutting it off and pressing everything down. Everything ready to go. Recently I had truffle mac and cheese as an appetizer at a restaurant and it was really tasty. Onions, Broc-stalk, salt, pepper, cayenne. Meanwhile, Mandi made some breadcrumbs.
