I have to say, we have had some delicious meals around here lately! One reason could be that I've just been in the mood to cook. One could be my obsession with Pinterest. Whatever the reason, the meals have been great! I thought I would share a few.

This chicken was amazing! I took chicken out of the freezer not knowing what I would do with it. I thought we might just grill it. Jon is burned out on grilled chicken so we tried to come up with another option. Jon thought we could stuff it, but I had already fileted it, so it was too thin to stuff. I came up with the idea to marinate the chicken in a spicy chipotle marinade, pound it thin, put cheddar cheese and sliced jalapenos on it, roll it up and grill it. Jon quickly agreed that that is what we needed to do! Oh. my. goodness. It was delicious!

Another meal we had that was amazing was a copycat from McAlister's. I saw this sandwich advertised and knew that I would be re-creating it at home! It was a southwest turkey sandwich. Turkey, pepper jack cheese, bacon, guacamole and a southwest chipotle dressing. (You could add lettuce, tomatoes and onions if you want.) One word: AMAZING!! We all LOVED these sandwiches! (Well, except for Luke, of course. He doesn't like anything!)

Here are some things you have to try. I found all of them on Pinterest! :)

Slow-Cooker Shredded Beef Tacos

The Absolute Best Crockpot Beef Stroganoff

Jalapeno Ranch Dip
This is WAY better the next day! It was a great dip for so many things!

Peanut Butter Cup Brownies

Oven Baked Ham & Cheese Sliders
I made these with and without the mustard. I liked them both ways, but Jon preferred them without.

Easy Potato and Bacon Breakfast Casserole

Cheesy Bacon Pull-Apart Bread

I love to cook (when I have the time), but had gotten completely sick of all of the same old recipes. It has become fun again since finding a great place to find new recipes or come up with some on our own! Have you tried anything delicious lately? Please share!!
