If you’ve ever had Tuscan chicken pasta or pizza you might like to try Tuscan Chicken Lasagna. It’s packed with grilled chicken, spinach, sun dried tomatoes, garlic and loads of mozzarella and parmesan cheese. Most Tuscan chicken recipes are made with a cream sauce but I opted for a traditional red sauce instead and it was quite delicious. Instead of making a big pan of lasagna, I made two smaller ones and placed one in the freezer for later. We enjoyed a side salad and fresh sliced bread to make this meal complete. It easily made 4 meals for the two of us.

Mongolian beef is one of my favorite take out dishes. There’s just something about that crispy beef covered in a delectable thick sauce that is packed with flavor and clings to every bite. Asian dishes can sometimes be challenging but since I started following “Woks of Life“, I am learning more about wok cooking and trying new techniques that make Asian food taste so good. This is one of their most popular dishes and I can see why. Ever since they posted instructions on how to prepare beef for stir fry I’ve been anxious to try it out. It cooks up with a crispy texture but so tender it almost melts in your mouth. It’s so good you might think it came from your favorite restaurant. If you love Mongolian Beef, I guarantee you will love this recipe!

Happy Cinco de Mayo! This year Joe and I are sharing a mountain of nachos with all our favorite toppings. These nachos have a little bit of everything to tempt your taste buds, starting with spicy ground beef and green chile cheese sauce. Then there’s the avocado corn pico with pickled jalapenos and a few black olives to top it off. Bring a fork because as you make your way through these nachos it’s like a towering Jenga, you pull out a chip and find the toppings shifting and sometimes topple. Nachos are just fun to eat and Cinco de Mayo is the best excuse to make up a platter. If you double the ground beef, you can make tacos on the side. Win Win!!

Some of you who are close to my age group probably remember when our Mom’s made simple desserts using pudding mixes and cool whip. I’ve noticed on Pinterest that they are still as popular as ever. I can see why everyone would love them, they are so easy to make and require no baking except for a pie crust. Literally you can whip one up in no time! I like to savor every bite unlike Joe who will woof it down in a minute. With the days getting warmer it’s nice to enjoy a cool treat. I added some pecans to the graham cracker crust for a little extra crunch. It tasted so good, it might have been one of my best crusts yet. There’s a layer of sweetened cream cheese on the bottom with dark chocolate pudding in the center topped with cool whip. A few sprinkles of toffee bits are my favorite crunch to top this pie, although chocolate chips or bits of candy make a great topping too. You could always change the pudding flavor to make an entirely different taste. For example you could make a vanilla, banana or butterscotch pie, it’s all up to you! White Chocolate is my next pie, what do you think of an all white pie!!
