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!
Some recipes are so easy to make, you may wonder why you never have before. I’ve posted a few recipes on here that only require a handful of ingredients. I never even thought about making some of these recipes until I stumbled upon them. This post features another easy recipe. This one contains a few ingredients, most of which you probably have in your pantry. However, it requires only three steps and a crock pot. I’m not lying; only three steps separate you from a delicious side dish!
Normally for Soup Sunday I serve some type of roll or bread. I love dipping crusty bread into creamy soup. It’s my thing. However, sometimes just having bread as a side works well on it’s own, no dipping required. So for the previous Soup Sunday I made biscuits. I have made Four Ingredient Biscuits on here before, but this recipe is for a different type of biscuit. The biscuits in this blog are soft, fluffy, and incredibly light. These biscuits are absolutely perfect.
I have come across a few recipes which stop me in my tracks. This was one such recipe. I was entranced by the cheesy look of this flatbread. Now, this isn’t a traditional flatbread. It is made from puff pastry, so it is incredibly flaky and buttery. It’s also topped with some delicious things. So, if you are searching for a new twist on pizza and flatbread, you have stumbled across the perfect recipe.
Since I starting blogging, I have branched out and tried many new things I never thought I would. The real turn of events is I have liked nearly all of the foods I was sure I would hate. Weird how that works. Please hold the “I told you so’s” until after this blog is finished. Anyway, one of the foods I once hated but now love is cauliflower. I have a few recipes on here featuring this versatile vegetable (Crock Pot Cheesy Buffalo Cauliflower, Creamy Cauliflower Soup, and Cauliflower Buffalo Wings). However, none of these cauliflower recipes are as easy as the one that follows. If you love mashed potatoes, you are in for an amazing treat.
Confession time. I love green beans. Now this may not seem like a confession. However, I must admit I love canned green beans. You know, those soggy, lifeless green beans? Yeah, I love those. I know, they aren’t even really flavorful. So, I wanted to explore the green bean more. I mean, I love canned green beans, so fresh ones had to be even better right? Right. Fresh green beans are 100% more delicious than the canned ones. I know, I know. You can say, “I told you so,” now.
I am all about easy, healthy recipes that anyone can duplicate. I absolutely love recipes that seem too easy to be true but aren’t. This post is exactly that. Who ever heard of bread that doesn’t require any sort of machine to make? Also, there aren’t any weird ingredients needed in this recipe. There are just standard bread ingredients needed in this recipe. I promise you, this bread is insanely easy to make, and it is more delicious than anything you can buy in a store.
Happy Valentine’s Day! Instead of posting a recipe related to something romantic or something Valentine-y, I promised you a post on breadsticks. Now, this may not seem like a post fit for Valentine’s Day. However, these breadsticks are the Crock Pot Pot Pie Soup’s soul mate. These breadsticks are the soup’s one true love. And I love these breadsticks. What could be better than a post based on a love between foods, two foods I happen to love together?
Macaroni and cheese. I am willing to bet that most people recognize those words together. Actually, those are two of my favorite things combined together into one delicious creation. Do you know what makes macaroni and cheese even better? Placing it into a muffin pan and baking it so it is in a portable, cup form. Oh, and adding a buttery, crunchy crust to it takes it over the edge.
One of the best parts of eating at Mexican restaurants is the free chips and salsa. I will never be able to turn down chips and salsa. However, the chips at the restaurants aren’t all that great for you. They are often fried. So, I wanted to implement my oven fried foods idea on the tortilla chip. I have to tell you, these were better than the restaurant tortilla chips and way better than the bagged chips at the store.
