One Pan Garlic Parmesan Pasta

One Pan Garlic Parmesan PastaThis One Pan Garlic Parmesan Pasta is a delicious dinner and it’s an easy recipe. I love that you place all the ingredients into a pot after you saute the garlic, and then you let it simmer for 20 minutes until done. Serve it with some bread and a side of vegetables and dinner is on the table.  To change up the recipe, you could also add cooked chicken to the top to make it a garlic Parmesan chicken pasta dish. Here is how to make the recipe:

Caramel Cheesecake Bars

Caramel Cheesecake BarsThese Caramel Cheesecake Bars have a yummy gooey caramel topping, a delicious cheesecake filling and a sweet graham cracker crust. I took the caramel cheesecake bars to a luncheon get together and everyone who tried it said it tasted delicious. The caramel kept dripping off each bar of cheesecake as I took it from the pan and placed it onto a plate. It was quite the challenge to get good pictures of the bars because of the gooey caramel, but it was worth making this sweet treat. I ate more bars than I should have because they were so good. This is a recipe you’ll want to make, so be sure to save it and pin it for later!

Caramel Cheesecake Bars

One kitchen item I wish I would have had while I was making the caramel was a candy thermometer. Because then I would have known exactly when the caramel reached the temperature of 225 degrees F. But since I didn’t have a candy thermometer, once I thought the caramel had boiled long enough I would drop a small amount of it in cool water to see if it would form a ball. The caramel still turned out being delicious.

Chicken Enchilada Tortilla Chip Casserole

Chicken Enchilada Tortilla Chip CasseroleI made this Chicken Enchilada Tortilla Chip Casserole on a day when I needed an easy dish to put into the oven quickly. I took already cooked shredded chicken from the freezer and thawed it in the microwave while I mixed together ingredients to create a sauce. Once the chicken was thawed, I added it to the sauce mixture and then poured it over the tortilla chips that had been placed in a casserole dish. After sprinkling the top with cheese, it was ready to place in the oven to bake. It only took about 10 minutes to prep! Below is the recipe for the Chicken Enchilada Tortilla Chip Casserole:

Homemade Apple Pie Filling

Homemade Apple Pie Filling Bottled I love the smell of a fresh apple pie cooking in the oven when the weather is turning cooler outside. And I especially love making this homemade Apple Pie Filling because once it’s completed it’s so easy to put an apple pie in the oven within minutes.

When making this recipe, I used to peel, core and cut all of my apples using a knife, but I finally invested in a Johnny Apple Peeler. I wish I would have purchased it years ago because it would have saved me so much time! It peels, cores and slices the apples and really makes the process of adding the apples to the jars so much faster. And my little ones love helping me use the apple peeler. It’s a good product you’ll want to look into having if you plan to make homemade apple pie every year.

Easy Crock Pot Glazed Sweet Rolls

Easy Crock Pot Glazed Sweet RollsThis past week I was in the mood for some sweet rolls, and so I made these easy Crock Pot Glazed Sweet Rolls. I placed them in the crock pot in the early afternoon so they would be ready for my girls to eat when they came home from school. They really loved this warm treat as part of their afternoon snack. These Glazed Sweet Rolls are so easy to make. I had them in the crock pot in less than 10 minutes. Plus they tasted good too!

 

Glazed Sweet Rolls in Crock Pot

After lining a crock pot with parchment paper, take refrigerated buttermilk biscuits and dip each one in butter and then in a brown sugar and cinnamon mixture. Then place them in the crock pot. Place a paper towel over the top of the crock pot before putting the lid on. This will help keep moisture from falling onto the rolls.

I ate a few more sandwiches than I probably should have, but they just tasted delicious.

The pasta sauce used as a dipping sauce added to the flavors of the sandwich. If you need a quick dinner idea for the family, this is a great meal to make. It took about ten minutes to prep and 16 minutes to bake.
