Good Morning! Potato & Egg Breakfast Skillet

Did someone say breakfast?! Breakfast is my fianc├ęs favorite meal of the day so I try my best to fill his mornings with yummy food and plenty of coffee. While he absolutely adores cereal and milk, sometimes I surprise him by actually cooking. I am definitely not a morning person but making food for loved ones always makes me happy!

Balsamic Red Onion Chicken with Black Beans

Two of my favorite things! Chicken and Black Beans! I eat this at least twice a week. It's great right outta the pan but put this mixture in a tortilla with some lettuce and sour cream and Oh My Goodness! I've actually eaten a whole pan of this by myself. (Shhh! Don't tell my family!) I usually make this in a large non-stick skillet but recently I got a cast-iron skillet and I liked it so much that I don't think ill ever make it in anything else.

Gooey Brownie Sundae

This recipe has two parts, a fudgy brownie and a delicious frosting that goes along with it! This is a cast-iron skillet recipe but you could certainly make this in a 10 inch baking dish. The frosting recipe is also multi-purpose. Along with brownies it can also be used on cakes, cupcakes, ice cream, cinnamon rolls and fruit. I used it like a dipping sauce once at a dinner party and paired it with fresh fruit and sweet breads. It was a big hit!

Refreshing Strawberry Tea

Spring is on the way! I moved to Florida about two years ago and it gets HOT in the springtime! Rainy season comes and it stays muggy outside so when the skies finally clear I like to go out on my porch and enjoy my favorite warm weather drink. Strawberries, water and Splenda are all you need to make your day delicious!

Ziti Al Forno

This is another one of the recipes that I use for big gatherings. This is honestly the best Ziti I have ever had. Zesty tomato sauce, bell peppers and cheese all wrapped around perfectly cooked pasta!! I like to serve it with an olive platter, garlic bread and red wine. Delizioso!
