Chicken & Chile Corn Cakes with Buttery Maple Gravy

Are you a fan of chicken and waffles? I sure am. There is something about those sweet and savory flavors that get me every time! I would gladly eat chicken & waffles for breakfast, lunch or dinner. And, I wouldn’t put it past me to eat chicken & waffles for all three meals in one particular day if I ever had the opportunity. LOL! Is it so wrong? Yeah, probably. But, a girl can dream, right?

Crave-Worthy French Onion Stuffed Shells

The onions are stuffed into large, perfectly cooked pasta shells until they’re practically overflowing. The stuffed shells are then layered on top of toasted, garlicky French bread, topped with an abundant mixture of grated Swiss, and Gruyere cheeses, and popped into the oven, so the cheese melts into a blanket of golden, gooey, goodness…Be still my French onion loving heart!
