Chocolate Fudge Pie

I enjoy dabbling with different recipes in my kitchen. Over the last few months of my blogging experience, I’ve had a lot of fun trying new things. One of the foods I’ve enjoyed focusing recipes around is tofu. Granted, I’ve only posted one other recipe with tofu in it, Chocolate Silken Mousse. This was one of the first recipes I ever posted on my blog. In the spirit of that recipe, I made a new recipe involving tofu and chocolate.

You may have noticed by now that I love pasta dishes. Pasta itself can be higher in calories. I definitely don’t advocate high calorie dishes on my blog. So, I like to pair pasta with lower calorie sauces. It is so easy to make low calorie sauces that are rich in flavors. This way you have a hearty pasta and a flavorful, low calorie sauce that doesn’t make you feel guilty for eating a hearty dish.

Tomato, Cheddar, & Quinoa Soup | jollycrumbs.com

I haven’t posted a recipe from Soup Sunday in quite a while. So, it’s about that time to share another delicious and easy recipe for a soup I love. Now, I’ve posted a couple other soups that may seem similar to this one. However, I promise this soup is really different. I have made a couple tomato soups before, and both were great successes. This soup combines a wonderful tomato flavor with the interesting texture of quinoa.

Answer: really not that difficult at all. I stuck to making easy candy treats that could be easily made for any occasion. So, I present you with candy number one- the Oreo truffle.

One Pot Lasagna


One Pot Lasagna | jollycrumbs.com

It’s no secret I love one pot meals. I’ve made quite a few on this blog because they are just too easy. It’s really easy to take traditional favorites and re-make them into one pot dishes. This post is no exception to that. Lasagna is one of my favorite Italian dishes. I’ve even made one on this blog. However, sometimes I don’t like layering the ingredients because I get lazy. This one pot lasagna fixes that challenge.

Garlic Cheese Sauce

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: sometimes foods just need a sauce. Sauces enhance flavors that you may not have even picked up on before. I said this back in February about my Greek Yogurt Ranch Sauce. So I wanted to add another sauce to the Jolly Crumbs repertoire. This sauce combines two of my favorite ingredients: garlic and cheese.

I love sweet breads. I’m not talking about the meat sweet breads, but actual breads that are sweet. I just felt I needed to clarify this. Anyway, I have made two sweet breads before on this blog. I made a Banana Bread and Pumpkin Bread. Both of these breads were a hit. I wanted to add another sweet bread to this collection. You can never have too many breads that are perfect for breakfast and dessert.

Breakfast Casserole

Easy, cheap meals are very important in my life. Sometimes I can make the more involved recipes. Other times I don’t have longer than to throw something in the oven or into a skillet. So, I like to have a variety of recipes that fit different situations and occasions. Once again I channeled my love for brinner into this recipe. However, this made delicious leftovers for breakfast, and it can easily be made quickly in the mornings.

Sometimes I just want a no-fuss, easy side dish for meals. I love cooking, but sometimes I get lazy. So, for “Mexican night,” I needed a simple side dish. I’m a huge fan of Mexican rice, so that seemed to be a perfect side dish. I have made a Mexican Rice Casserole before, but it requires slightly more work than I wanted to do. So, I decided to make a simplified Mexican rice side dish. This is so easy you only need one pot!

Butternut Squash & Black Bean Enchiladas


Butternut Squash & Black Bean Enchiladas | jollycrumbs.com

Sometimes I have to admit that I get bored with very simple recipes. I’m not saying they aren’t delicious in their own right, but occasionally I get bored and feel the need to jazz up my recipes. So, you may know I love Mexican food, in particular enchiladas. I usually order cheese enchiladas from any Mexican restaurant I go to. I also have a recipe on here for Skinny Cheese Enchiladas. Don’t get me wrong, I love cheese enchiladas. But even Samuel and I agree that sometimes those get boring.
