Cheesy Chicken Bacon Breasts

A new year means a new recipes! I'm back and starting my Senior year of college, I can't believe how fast the time has flown. I spent my summer interning with the BUZZ Magazine working Mondays-Fridays from 9-4 so at the end of the day I was too tired to cook up a meal for one and then blog about it. Sleep was much more important. The good news for y'all is I spent a lot of my free time researching all kinds of new delicious and of course cheap recipes to cook and share. I have an collection of cookbooks and websites that I constantly research for ideas. I even get daily emails from sites like with the recipe of the day. I will do my best to post these recipes frequently but I am taking a full course load and working nights as a Intramural Sports Supervisor and working part time at the BUZZ Magazine so take it easy on me if I miss a week or two.

Here is a recipe that I have been dying to share with y'all. If the title wasn't obvious enough, it has chicken, cheese and bacon and let's face it, anything with bacon is sure to be a hit! I hope you enjoy it as much I do!

Cheesy Chicken Bacon Breats

4 Chicken Breasts
8 slices bacon
1 egg, beaten
1 cup bread crumbs
your choice of sliced cheese

Place egg in shallow dish, place bread crumbs in another dish.

Place 2 slices uncooked bacon around each breast. 

Dip each piece of chicken in egg and then in bread crumbs. Lay each piece of chicken in a lightly greased 9x13 baking dish.

Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 40 minutes.

Top each chicken breast with your favorite slice of cheese. I used provolone but any type will taste just a good.

Continue baking another 10-20 minutes or until chicken is brown and cheese is melted. 

For a side dish I whipped of a pot of instant mashed potatoes and added garlic salt to the mix to spice it up. 

Dig in! I know the smell of bacon has been torturing you for the past hour!

Hope you like this as much as I do! Leave me a comment with any questions or comments and don't forget to follow me to stay up to date on what I'm cooking in my kitchen :)

Grilled 50 different ways!

After a very very very long break from blogging...I'M BACKKK! Sorry for keeping everyone waiting. My school life has been hectic lately and as my mother always says "School comes first". The good news for all my viewers though is I have stockpiled a bunch of recipes which means you will be seeing a lot of great things from me over the next few weeks!

Grilled Cheeses can be a college students best friend. They use minimal ingredients (meaning they are super cheap) and are insanely fast and easy to make...I have yet to meet a person who has not been able to make a grilled cheese! Whip one up, make a quick cup of soup and voila! A complete delicious meal!

I was just grocery shopping at my local Publix and while I was checking out, the latest Food Network Magazine grabbed my eye. On the cover was a giant picture of a delicious looking tart topped with an egg, bacon and cheese (YUM) and the title "Easy 122 No-Fuss Recipes". Now that is right up my alley. The eye catching cover combined with the limited time I had to flip through it led me to impulsively buy it. As I sit at home going through it, I found that in the center of the magazine is a bonus recipe booklet full of all the different ways to make grilled cheeses...SCORE!

I cannot hoard all these wonderful recipes for my own enjoyment so I figured I would spend my Saturday evening sharing my wonderful find with all of y'all.

P.S. Sorry there are no pictures included in this post :(

Baked Ziti

I'll be honest, this dish requires more work than my previous posts. It's still easy to make, it just requires more of your time. It is well worth it though. If you're ever trying to impress someone with a good homemmade italian dinner, this will do the trick.

Baked Ziti
1- 16 ounce package of ziti
1 pound ground beef* (or 1/2 pound ground beef and half pound sausage)
1 cup onions, diced
1- 26 ounce jar tomato and basil pasta sauce
1- 14.5 ounce can stewed tomatoes, undrained
1/2 tablespoon basil pesto (I omitted this)
2 cups Italian cheese blend
1- 15 ounce container Ricotta cheese

Cook and drain ziti.

Brown the meat and onions.


Stir in pasta sauce, tomatoes and basil presto. Simmer 5-10 minutes

Combine ricotta and 1 cup cheese and toss with pasta.

Pour pasta into a greased 9x13 dish. Put the meat mixture over the pasta and top with the remaining cheese.

Bake 12-15 minutes at 375 degrees

I paired the baked ziti with some garlic bread. Absolutely delicious :)

Pork Chops and Scalloped Potatoes

I've been a little under the weather lately and every time I get sick I get homesick. Seeing as how I am not able to go home for a couple weeks, I decided to make one of my childhood favorites and bring a little bit of home to me. 

Tonight's dinner is Pork Chops and Scalloped Potatoes. The pork chops are a classic that my mom always makes and the scalloped potatoes was something new I wanted to try. I also made more Green Giant green beans with almonds that aren't pictured until the last photo. Refer to my other posts for information on Green Giant veggies!

As always, this is all easy, inexpensive and doesn't take very long to make!

Pork Chops
-Shake 'N Bake Original Pork (comes with coating mix and a shaker bags)
-Pork chops (bone-in or boneless...I used bone-in)

Scalloped Potatoes
-Betty Crocker Scalloped Potatoes (comes with potatoes and sauce mix)
-3 tablespoons margarine or butter
-2 2/3 cups of BOILING water
1 1/2 cups milk

The potatoes can be cooked in the oven or over the stove but I used the oven.

Heat the oven to 450 degrees. Stir sauce mix, boiling water, milk and margarine with a whisk in a 2-quart casserole. Stir in potatoes.

Bake uncovered about 32 minutes or until top is golden brown and potatoes are tender (sauce will thicken as it stands). Stir before serving.

Heat oven to 425. Moisten pork chops with water.

Shake the chops, 1 or 2 at a time, in the shaker bag with 1 package of the coating mix.

Bake in ungreased for foil-lined pan for 15 minutes or until done (minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees with the meat thermometer).

So. Good. :)

Spider Cupcakes

I LOVE to bake and I LOVE cupcakes so in the spirit of Halloween I decided to bake Halloween Spider Cupcakes. :)

There are several ways to do this but I choose to use funfetti cake mix Halloween edition and twizzlers (the fruity kind). Make your favorite cupcakes complete with your favorite icing. If you don't want Twizzlers you can use black licorice for the legs.

Spider Cupcakes
-Funfetti cake mix (Halloween edition)
        *1 cup water
        * 1/3 cup oil
        *3 eggs

Make you're favorite cupcakes as normal

 When cool, frost the cupcakes. Use the grape flavored twizzlers for the spider legs.

Cut the twizzler into fourths with scissors. Then cut into thin strips. Top additional cupcakes with sprinkles.

 Put the legs on a frosted cupcakes. Place an oreo on top of the twizzlers (you might want to spread additional icing on the oreo to ensure it sticks).

Mummy Dogs

In the spirit of Halloween I wanted a halloweeny meal so "halloweeny wieners" it was (Ha Ha corny I know..)! Thank you Mrs. Martin for providing the recipes/ideas! Y'all should check out for this and other great inspiring recipes! They have a lot of wonderful holiday food ideas. This is a great Holiday meal that will easily impress family/friends

Mummy Dogs
-1 can (8oz) Pillsbury refrigerated crescent dinner rolls (8 count)
-10 large hot dogs
-2 1/2 slices (2.5oz) American cheese slices, quartered
-cooking spray
-mustard and/or ketchup, if desired

Heat the oven to 375 degrees. Open the can of crescents and unroll the dough. 

Seperate at perforations creating 4 rectangles; press perforations to seal. 

With a knife or kitchen scissors, cut each rectangle lengthwise into 10 pieces, making a total of 40 pieces of dough. Slice cheese into quarters. (I cut 4 squares but it would turn out better if 4 long rectangles were cut)

Wrap 4 pieces of dough around each hot dog and 1/4 slice of cheese to resemble "bandages" stretching dough slightly to completely cover the hot dog. About 1/2 inch from one end of each hot dog, separate "bandages" so hot dogs show through for the "face". Place wrapped hot dogs (cheese side down) on ungreased large cookie sheet; spray dough lightly with cooking spray.

Bake 13 to 17 minutes or until dough is light golden brown and hot dogs are hot.

Draw features on the "face". Mustard works the best, however I used ketchup because I do not like Mustard.

The "mummy dogs" turned out very well and wonderfully delicious. It was a good holiday meal however it did take a little time to do thanks to the tedious details. From start to finish this took me about 45 minutes (including cook time).

Personal Pizza

This is something new I decided to try. Ordering pizzas, although convenient, is pricey. (If you insist on ordering the pizza I have found Dominos pizza often has the best deals. They have a 2x Tuesday deal where you can get 2 large pizzas for the price of one...this only works for carryout though. If you live on campus or close it, there's a dominos on St. Johns Bluff so all in all this doesn't pose as much of an inconveneince.)

I was browsing through Publix's website looking for their weekly cupons and buy 1 get 1 free deals when I came across buy 1 pizza sauce jar, get 1 free. They also happened to have buy 1 package of shredded cheese, get 1 free. Pizza sauce + mozzarella cheese = pizza night!!

There are several options for buy pizza crust. I got the Martha White Pizza Crust Mix package that you just add water and oil to but there are also some that come completely premade or frozen so you only have to heat it up. Just depends on what quality you want and what your price range is.

Personal Pizza
-mozzarella cheese
-pizza sauce
-pizza dough mix package
-1/2 cup HOT water
-1 tsp oil
-favorite toppings

 Preheat the oven to 475 degrees. Spray a 12-14 inch pizza pan with nonstick cooking spray. I however just used a nonstick cookie sheet.

Combine the pizza crust mix and the hot water in a medium mixing bowl, stir about 30 strokes with a fork or until well blended. (I found it easier and faster to use my hands). Shape the dough into a ball (if the dough is too sticky add 1-2 tbs of flour). Brush with oil and then cover and let stand for 5 minutes. Then spread out in the pan and prick generously with a fork.

Bake on the lowest oven rack for 5 minutes.

Top the pizza as desired. I added sauce, cheese, and pepperoni. Bake an additional 9-11 minutes or until crust is golden brown and the topings have been throroughly heated. Store leftovers loosly covered in the refridgerator.

This pizza was labeled "Thin and Cripsy" but I didn't spread out the dough as much as I could have therefore it was more of a "Pan" pizza. If spread out it would be slightly bigger and much more crispier.

This is a very good and easy way to make pizzas that everyone can have just the way they like it. Buy a few packets of the crust mix and everyone can have their own personal pizza for a very low price :)

Taco Dip

This may just be my favorite recipe. It is absolutely delicious! Robert and our friends love it so much I have had several people ask for the recipe. Not to mention every UFC fight or football game I make this dip for everyone. It is a easy appetizer, tailgating food or even meal itself. Yummm :)

I must admit I am not a fan of refried beans or sour cream (this dish contains both) but I absolutely love this! With all the flavors and textures combined it is difficult to distinguish one ingredient from another. Everything compliments each other and you don't even realize what you are really eating! Don't knock it 'till you try it.

Hot Ground Beef Mexican Dip A.K.A "Taco Dip"
-1 pound ground beef
-1 16 ounce can refried beans
-1 envelope taco seasoning
-1 cup sour cream
-1 16 ounce jar of salsa
-2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
*optional: jalapenos and/or black olives

Brown the ground beef and drain the grease. Stir in the refried beans and the taco seasoning. Ill admit at this point it doesn't look too appetizing but trust me, it will!

Spoon into a 9x13 baking dish. Combine the sour cream and salsa and then spread over the meat mixture. (I know, I still doesn't look to appetizing...just hang in there!)

 Sprinkle with cheese...

Now bake it at 400 degrees until bubbly; about 30 minutes. Serve it with tortilla chips or "scoops" Frito's. We prefer the Frito's :) You can even put it in a taco shell if you want.

See, it finally looks better doesn't it! You'll definitely have to try this one out for yourselves...its a guaranteed favorite :)

Fish Pasta and Easy Mac 'N Cheese

This fish dish was once again made by Robert. I simply made the mac 'n cheese and the pasta. Robert deserves all the credit for not only making this dinner but for inventing it as well.

I would also like to give thanks to my MaMaw for the beautiful plate pictured below and in the upcoming posts. She thought I should spice up my blog with colorful plates instead of using bland whites ones all the time. They are from Target and contrary to their pottery-like looks, they are plastic and "unbreakable". I put that in quotations because me being me, have been able to break several "unbreakable" plates and bowls so only time will tell if the plate will live up to its name.

This is actually last nights dinner. I was in a rush to get to work and didn't have time to post this beforehand. The dinner is a delicious fish pasta, mac 'n cheese and teriyaki vegetables. Again, Robert deserves the credit and the tilapia used in the pasta is the best fish he has made yet. :)

Fish Pasta
-Tilapia filets (we used 2)
-Knorr Pasta Sides Butter & Herb
-Garlic Salt
-Lemon Juice
-Pam or other nonstick cooking spray

Mac 'N Cheese
-Elbow Macaroni
-Velveeta Cheese

Green Giant Teriyaki Vegetables

This fish is made the exact same way as it was in my first post, so if you need instructions refer to (Robert's) Easy Tilapia.

Cook the fish using the pan, garlic salt, and lemon juice. Meanwhile boil water in 2 3 quart saucepans; one for the maraconi and one for the butter and herb pasta.

Once the water boils add the Knorr side to one of the saucepans and follow the intructions given. In the other pot add the elbow macaroni. Once it is cooked, drain the water and replace the macaroni in the saucepan. 

Meanwhile, chop up the velveeta cheese into cubes. Once the water is drained, reduce the heat to low and add the cheese cubes, constantly stirring until completely melted. 

Chop up the fish in the pan. You can just leave it whole and eat it with the pasta but we chopped it up into fine peices and added it directly into the pasta itself. This allowed us to conserve the fish filets. 

This is what the pasta will look like after the pasta is fully cooked and the fish is added.

Bona petit! It is absolutely delicious and very fulfilling. I hope you enjoy it just as much as we do!

Although we specifically used Knorr Sides, there are many variations you can use. You can just make rotini or speghetti noodles and add the fish to that. You could also add some alfredo sauce to that and make a whole new dish. Let me know if you need or want any ideas! I have plenty :)

If you do decide to use Knorr Sides there is a Butter & Herb Rice dish along with other noodle/rice variations if you would prefer one of those instead.

Also keep in mind there are several store brand names of side pasta/rice items if you would prefer those instead.
