I have a couple low-brow vs. high-brow chicken dishes to share with you today!

The low-brow is a super easy Chicken Enchilada dish that includes bacon and a creamy ranch sauce. It’s perfect for those ranch fiends in your life (we all have them)! Sean loves an enchilada and he was crazy for this version. It’s savory, a little spicy, cheesy, and so easy. The high-brow is a Slow Cooker Chicken with Apple and Crème Fraîche that includes my favorite cooking booze–calvados. It’s creamy, herbal, hearty, a little sweet, a lot savory, and perfectly autumnal. I’ve made this several times already this fall. The most important thing is that they are equally delicious. Win.

Turkey and Bean Freezer Burritos

Happy (late) Wednesday, frens!

How’s the spookiest week of the year going for you? My mom is in town all week! and we’ve been eating just a ton of delicious things and hanging out with Casper-man. It’s been pretty fun and super nice to have some extra hands and eyes around, especially since Sean has to go take a class in Seattle this week on some sort of “cold-weather-geo-dirt-civil-building-stuff” (technical terms, y’all) so he can snag jobs for his company in Alaska (no we are NOT moving to Alaska)…mostly it’s stuff I don’t 100% understand, except that he’ll be gone for 5 days and we’re totes gonna miss him. On Friday we plan on staying in and hopefully some Trick-or-Treaters will stop by because we are handing out full-size candy bars and I just don’t need that sort of temptation in my face after Halloween.

I’m just popping by to share two recent recipes up on Betty Crocker: Make-Ahead Turkey and Bean Freezer Burritos and Cheesy Brown Rice, Broccoli, and Chicken Casserole. Both are equally delicious in different ways. Sean’s a burrito guy through-and-through, so these were a huge hit in the house for quick lunches. The casserole took some talking up–since he thinks he doesn’t like casserole (he’s wrong, for the record) but the leftovers ended up being devoured within 2 days, so you be the judge.

Dinner-Time Favorites from Betty Crocker

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

It’s no secret that I make a LOT of sweet treats on this blog, but truth-be-told, I make dinner several times a week and sometimes I love it even more than dessert.

Sometimes.

Lately I’ve been cooking up a lot of savory fare for my friends at Betty Crocker and below are just a few of my favorites from the past few months. To all of my recipes for Betty Crocker, visit my Betty Blogger profile!

Beef Stroganoff Cup Pies–these little pies have all the things I love about beef stroganoff in a handy little pie. Sean took these to lunch every day the week I made them!

Lentil and White Bean Sloppy Joes–Anytime I have a craving for some nostalgic comfort food that can be made quickly, these meat-free sloppy joes happen.

Lighter Buffalo Chicken Salads–We love buffalo wings in our house and could eat them any day of the week. This salad combines the spicy goodness of one of our favorite bar-snacks with the fresh crunch of a salad.

Crunchy Italian Salad with Pita Croutons–if the above salad is any indication, we love a loaded-salad in this house. This one hits all the flavor and textural contrasts I look for in a meal: salty and sharp, sweet and tangy, crunchy, savory, crisp, fresh…it has it all!

Cowboy Spaghetti Bake–As a kid, my hands-down favorite meal was spaghetti. This version is decidedly western with chili powder, bacon, jalapenos, and a melty layer of cheddar.

Cheeseburger Skillet Fries–The day I made these skillet fries was a very good day…I mean, it’s everything you love about a burger and fries, but in a skillet.
