Unbelievably Cheesy Pepperoni Pizza Macaroni & Cheese

The thing I like most about this recipe (other than all the CHEESE), is how easy it is to make this recipe on a busy weeknight. By cooking the pasta while the vegetables are sauteing and the cheese sauce thickens, this Pepperoni Pizza Macaroni & Cheese can be on the dinner table in less time than it takes to order from your favorite take-out place.

Sweetly Fragrant Garlic Lovers Pork Chops

This recipe for Garlic Lovers Pork Chops was completely inspired by a trip I’d taken to our local warehouse superstore (aka Costco). During that trip, and on a whim that I picked up one of those mega-sized bags of whole, peeled garlic cloves and tossed it into my cart. While I wasn’t quite sure what I would do with so many peeled garlic cloves (there must have been at least 500 or more cloves of garlic in that bag), my mind was excitedly thinking of all the delicious possibilities!

Shortcut Raspberry Spice Monkey Bread

One of my very favorite convenience foods in the grocery store are the tube biscuits you find in the refrigerated section. You know the ones. They’re the little devils that, even though you know the “pop” is coming when the seal on the tube is released, somehow you’re still startled when it does. It happens to me every single time. LOL
