With all this cold weather (and likely a little nesting going on), I’ve been in the kitchen making a lot of yummy dishes that I’ve pinned from Pinterest. Below are a few I’ve tried recently and would definitely recommend, covering everything from lunches and dinners to sweet treats and desserts!
One Pot Wonder: Chicken Lo Mein
So easy, so flavorful and bonus…minimal dishes!
Cheddar Ranch Chicken Burgers
A tasty, flavor-packed alternative to ground beef! I served mine with homemade sweet potato fries. YUM!
Buffalo Chicken Dip
A fan favorite, perfect for football season! (I only add a quarter of the hot sauce it calls for…) My cousin Kelly found this recipe and once I tasted it, I knew I had to make it myself!
Tomato Soup with Parmesan Croutons
Super delicious tomato soup that almost tastes more like a bisque. And the parmesan croutons?! Heavenly! (I added some garlic powder for extra flavor, too.) The soup/croutons can also be frozen for a quick weeknight meal on the fly.
And on the dessert front:
Homemade Wendy’s Frosty
I’ve experimented with several copycat Frosty recipes, and this one is LEGIT! I used just three ingredients (1/2 gal lowfat chocolate milk, 1 can fat free sweetened condensed milk and 1 tub fat free Cool Whip) and combined and added to my ice cream maker for about 15 minutes. It makes a ton and tastes exactly like a Frosty!
Chocolate Chip Candy Cane Cheesecake
Have a hankering for cheesecake but don’t want all the calories? Try this healthy version from Hungry Girl. I added a store-bought graham cracker crust, which was a nice addition, but you don’t need it. (Or, you could buy the individual mini pie crusts and make single serving cheesecakes!)
The Only Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe You’ll Ever Need
The tastiest chocolate chip cookies EVER. Props to fellow blogger Kelly for creating these bad boys! (I think the secret is in the pudding mix…makes for a fluffy, chewy cookie.) I try to double the recipe and freeze the cookie dough for on-demand cookies whenever the craving strikes!

Right now I am cooking off my Pinterest soup and Crock Board– I’m freezing batches of soups for the after the baby and stocking my garage freezer. That one pot meal looks awesome!!
I’ll have to check your board out! I plan to do more of that too…I’ve also heard of “Freezer Parties” where you have a few girlfriends over and each person brings all the ingredients for a freezer friendly meal and you all cook your meals together and go home with several different meals– genius!
Ooo! I have tried a different one pot wonder recipe and we all loved it! I am definitely going to try that one! I love the clean up part of one pot dishes the best! ;)
Oooh can you share that one?! I LOVE less dishes! The Chicken Lo Mein was SO tasty (but I’d recommend using a little less than an entire box of pasta- my Dutch oven got so full that some of the noodles didn’t cook all the way through because I used the whole box. Words of advice!)
I tried this one:
and this one:
They are both similar flavors, but one has sausage. Both super tasty though!
YUM!! Pinning now :-) Thanks for sharing!

I LOVE one pot meals! Have you tried the spinach and artichoke one? So delish!
No, but that sounds delicious! Can you share the link when you get a chance?
