Individual Microwave Apple Crisp

microwave apple crisp 006

    Individual Microwave Apple Crisp is ready in less than 10 minutes and tastes just like the apple crisp you would bake for hours on end in the oven! I have absolutely fallen in love with this idea for a couple of reasons. 1. I don't have to bake a whole 9X13 casserole dish full of apple crisp. It would be a lot to eat for just one person. 2. The flavors are pretty amazing, tastes just like apple crisp and it's only for one person. 3. I could eat this apple crisp for b ...

Creamy Alfredo with Bacon and Peas

creamy alfredo with bacon and peas 011

Bacon, peas, and pasta in a hot tub full of creamy bacon-y alfredo sauce. That's whats for dinner tonight folks. Drop your dinner plans today, go to the grocery store, and get all the ingredients to make this now. Or.... you could always just go tomorrow and get the ingredients. It's almost 7pm here, and by now I would assume most people would have eaten already. This is one of the most amazing alfredo sauces I've had in awhile. Why? Because the alfredo sauce is cooked in leftover bacon that ...

Lasagna Pasta

Lasagna Pasta 014

  Picture re-taken on 5/16/15 I've noticed a couple of things about the romance novels I've been reading lately.... 1. Most of the books I've read so far, involve 2 guys fighting over a girl. I always feel sorry for the guy who ends up not getting the girl. Can't they both just get a long? 2. The people on the book cover look totally older than the age they are in the book. The ones on the cover look like they're in their mid 30's and the ages in the book mentioned are always 18 ...

Crock Pot Teriyaki Chicken

teriyaki 004

It's a snow day here! I've been super lazy too.... With snow days comes lazy meals. Lazy as in crock pot meals. If you were really lazy like me, you could just buy a whole bottle of teriyaki sauce at the grocery store and just dump that into the crock pot with some chicken. I almost wish I would have done that too. This sauce wasn't very thick when the chicken broth was added. It cooked down in the crock pot a little but not to the consistency I would have liked it. If I make this again ...

Chipotle inspired Rice Bowls

candybarcheesecake 003

  I was finally able to make it to Chipotle after I've heard my brother talking about it for years. After I told him that I went there, he said to me "Welcome to the real world." The real world is obviously a restaurant where you stuff your face with burritos about the side of your head. It was really good and everything, but I didn't care for the portion sizes. I liked the flavor combinations of everything, it was just too much for me to eat. I made my own Chipotle inspired meal and ...

Weight Watchers – Chicken Ranch Pasta

lounging 014

I love rotisserie chickens! There's a grocery store where I live, and you can get 2 of them for only $10.00. I think that's a steal. I like using them to make easy recipes like this Chicken Ranch Pasta. The chicken is already cooked, so all I had to do was make the sauce and boil the noodles. Super simple. I was really tempted to put this pasta in a casserole dish and make it into a mac and cheese casserole, but the sauce was super yummy I didn't want to wait any longer to eat it. I tried ...
