Deep Dish Garlic Lover’s Pizza!!!

Whenever we order pizza from our favorite local pizza joint, 9 times out of 10 we order their garlic lover’s pizza. Since that’s the case, back in 2011, I posted my version of the garlic lover’s pizza we love so much!

Today I’m updating the same post with all new photos and text, but the recipe remains unchanged except for the fact that this time I made my favorite deep dish garlic lover’s pizza in a cast iron skillet.

Sweet & Savory Creamy Chicken Salad with Dried Apricots & Macadamia Nuts

I find that a mix of dark and white meat chicken makes the best-tasting chicken salad. Store-bought rotisserie chicken is what I prefer when making a homemade chicken salad recipe.
When using onions in a non-cooked salad, I enjoy a red onion and think it is the sweetest. You can adjust the amount of red onion in the recipe depending on your taste. Chopped shallots may be used in place of the red onion for a slightly milder onion flavor.

Spicy Smoky Tex-Mex Stuffed Sweet Potatoes with Ground Beef & Beans

You may say to yourself after reading the ingredient list “Hey!” “What in the world is ground cinnamon and cocoa powder doing in a savory recipe like this?” “And what about the butter and lime juice?” “She has really gone off the deep end with this recipe!” “Has Renee lost her mind?!!”

And my answer would be…Well. Maybe. But not about this recipe.

Authentic German Spaetzle Casserole with Cheese & Crispy Onions

This dish for Authentic German Spaetzle Casserole was inspired by a recent trip to Germany my husband, and I was lucky enough to take onboard a Vantage River cruise ship (The River Voyager) down the Rhine River, on one of their culinary excursions. When I tell you it was a dream-trip come true, I am 100% NOT exaggerating!!

Extra Cheesy Spaghetti Stuffed Meatloaf for #SundaySupper

I came up with the idea for this Cheesy Spaghetti Stuffed Meatloaf to go along with this week’s #SundaySupper theme of “Cheesy Family Dinners.” I wanted to make something that was a little unexpected, and something that was topped with a thick layer of melted cheese. The result is this very large family-friendly meatloaf that will feed the masses when everyone is gathered around the #SundaySupper table.
