Chili Cheese Dog Bake

I made twice as much because my family usually eats twice as much as we should, but I had to bake it much longer than expected because the pizza dough was still doughy. But when it was baked, it tasted delicious! I love this dish.


  • 1 can (14 to 15 oz.) chili, heated
  • 1 can Pillsbury™ refrigerated classic pizza crust
  • 4 sticks of cheddar cheese
  • 4 all-beef hot dogs
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon parsley flakes


  1. Heat the oven to 375°F. Spray a 9-square-inch or 11×7-inch (2 quarts) glass baking dish with cooking spray. Pour hot pepper into dish; spread evenly.
  2. Roll out dough; cut into 4 strips. Cut 1 cheese stick in half lengthwise; place 1 half on each side of a hot dog. Wrap pizza dough strip around cheese and hot dog, overlapping slightly in center. Repeat with remaining dough strips, cheese sticks, and hot dogs. Place wrapped hot dogs on top of chili. (The chili should be hot.)
  3. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until lightly browned.
  4. Meanwhile, in a small microwave-safe cup, melt butter on high power. Stir in the garlic powder and parsley.
  5. Remove the baking dish from the oven. Brush the top of each cheese sausage with the butter mixture. Serve immediately.

Saturday, April 30, 2022

Bread has always been one of my favorite foods. Not the hohum loaves you’ll find at most grocery stores, but the soulful, artisan varieties made with love in bakeries and home kitchens.

If I had the time, I would bake bread every single day. Time is something I’ll never have enough of and bread is probably something I shouldn’t be eating every day anyhow 😉

But when you need bread, you need bread. On some occasions there aren’t hours to spare.

Easy Cheese Biscuits

Saturday, December 25, 2021


Hey, I’m back with these Easy Cheese Biscuits. Where have I been? First, I had family in town and life comes first. Then. I had a camera crew come to my house to film six recipes.

Do you know how much prep it takes to film six recipes? I had to have two to three batches of the recipe already done the night before. Basically, I’ve been cooking all day every day.

And then my kitchen had to look like no one ever eats in it. With five kids, that’s impossible. Usually our counter is packed with cans of protein powder, pre-workout, post-workout, nightime shake, amino acids, etc.

Not to mention just to keep my family functioning we have enough bananas, apples, and oranges for a small country and two loaves of bread for school lunches at all time. We are a full on child raising company.

Easy Cheese Biscuits

These Easy Cheese Biscuits are the perfect recipe when you need a quick way to add a special homemade touch to any meal. Perfect with soup, chili, stew and more!

  •  Prep Time : 20 minutes
  •  Cook Time : 15 minutes
  •  Total Time : 35 minutes


  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons baking powder
  • ¾ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 12 tablespoons (1 ½ sticks) salted butter, frozen
  • 1 ¼ cups buttermilk
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) grated sharp cheddar cheese
  • For brushing: 2 tablespoons melted butter


  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Line two baking sheets with parchment and silicone mats. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, sift together flour, baking powder and salt.
  3. Grate the frozen butter into the flour. Stir with a wooden spoon so that the butter is coated in flour and dispersed throughout the mixture. (Tip – if you don’t want to grate the butter, you can just cut in diced, chilled butter with a pastry cutter until the butter is the size of small peas and the mixture resembles coarse meal).
  4. Gradually add the buttermilk to the flour mixture; stir or knead just until a soft dough comes together. Fold in the grated cheese.
  5. Scoop about ¼-cup to ⅓ cup of dough and drop onto the prepared baking sheets. I use an ice cream scoop for this step, which keeps the biscuits the same shape and size.
  6. If the dough becomes warm while you mix and scoop (or if your kitchen is warm), pop the trays of biscuit dough back in the refrigerator or freezer for about 5-10 minutes to chill before baking. You want the dough as cold as possible when it goes into the oven so that the biscuits rise high and don't spread too much.
  7. Bake for about 15 minutes, or until golden brown on top. Brush the tops of the biscuits with melted butter as soon as they come out of the oven. Serve warm.

Living proof, breathtaking broccoli recipes do not must be boring…. Baked broccoli cheese balls are a delicious meat-loose meal or brilliant bite to serve at gatherings. Make it with clean or frozen broccoli, and watch even the pickiest of eaters make amusing of them!

Crispy on the outside with a Panko crumb coating and totally cheesy on the inside with 3 kinds of cheese. The little bits of fresh broccoli are totally coated in gooey, melted cheese.

I add 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes to give them some spice. You can reduce it to 1/4 teaspoon if you like.

You’ll need to go ahead and make the Broccoli Cheese Ball mix a little ahead of time and then shape them into balls. You want to refrigerate them at this point for at least 30 minutes so they hold their shape better.

  • 2 1/4 cups Panko crumbs, divided
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • Vegetable or Canola oil


  1. Steam broccoli until slightly softened. Let cool.
  2. Finely chop broccoli. You want the pieces to be 1/4-inch or less. Place in a large bowl.
  3. Add cheese, red pepper flakes, 1/4 cup Panko crumbs, and 1 egg to bowl with broccoli. Stir well.
  4. Use your hands to shape mixture into balls using about a rounded tablespoon for each ball. You should get 12-14.
  5. Place balls on a plate and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
  6. Place flour in a bowl.
  7. Place the 2 lightly beaten eggs in a second bowl and mix in 1 tablespoon water.
  8. Place remaining 2 cups Panko crumbs in a third bowl.
  9. Pour about 2 inches of oil in a Dutch oven or heavy pot. Heat oil to 375 degrees. For best results use a thermometer.
  10. Remove broccoli balls from refrigerator, coat in flour, dip in egg mixture, and then coat in Panko crumbs.
  11. Fry about 4 balls at a time cooking until golden brown on all sides.
  12. Drain on a paper towel-lined plate.

Pumpkin Roll Recipe With Cream Cheese Filling

No comments

Friday, August 6, 2021

 This classic pumpkin roll recipe is made with a delicious pumpkin cake and heavenly cream cheese filling ... and it's super easy to make. Watch the video below for a visual of how to assemble your own pumpkin roll!

Happy fall everyone! In honor of the calendar that officially turns into the new season this week, I thought I'd climb my favorite fall dessert recipe to the top of the blog again.

Yep, I'm talking about a good, old-fashioned, delicious classic pumpkin roll. ♡

I've had a tradition of making pumpkin rolls every fall for at least a decade now, and I always look forward to the relaxing, relaxing, and delicious fall vibe they bring. But I have to say that this year, during the first September we live abroad, this little tradition has been particularly nostalgic and comforting.

Although it now requires a special trip across town to one store in Barcelona that sells canned pumpkin puree, plus an extra trip to a different store to buy brick from "Philadelphia" (the name for cream cheese here in Spain, so cute), and some big messing around in the oven. Little Spaniard - The rhythms, feelings, smells and flavors of this ritual sound as familiar as ever. And the second time I cut a lovely round of a perfectly paired pumpkin cake filled with cream cheese filling, it tastes just as delicious as ever and feels the world wonderfully magical and comfortably small for a moment. Feel like a fall.

Anyway, if you also have a craving this season for a classic pumpkin roll, this recipe has been a favorite for years. But has been updated with the method of wrapping the cake in parchment paper, which I found to be simpler and more reliable than the classic towel method. If this is your first time making a pumpkin wrap, fear not - it's a lot easier than it might seem.

Let's make a pumpkin wrap !!

Cheesy Ground Beef Quesadillas

These ground beef quesadillas are jam packed with flavourful beef and lots of cheese. They’re super easy to make and disappear fast!

Looking for super cheesy ground beef quesadillas? You’ve come to the right place! Well seasoned ground beef, lots of ooey gooey cheese and a crispy golden brown exterior make these quesadillas simply irresistible! They’re sure to become a favourite in your home as they are in ours.

Hi friends! If you’re looking for an easy quesadilla recipe, you’ve come to the right place!

If you know me, you know that I’m a huge fan of quesadillas. One of the reasons is, like grilled cheese sandwiches, quesadillas are a method of getting more cheese into my pie hole, LOL.


  • ½ tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 pound ground beef (I use ‘extra lean’)
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon chipotle chili powder
  • ½ teaspoon oregano
  • ½ teaspoon cumin
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper powder (or to taste, optional)
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 2 tablespoon unsalted beef stock/broth
  • 12 ounces shredded cheese blend (about 3 cups (or combination of cheddar, Monterey jack and pizza mozzarella))
  • 6 flour tortillas (mine were about 7 to 8 inches in diameter)
  • Cooking spray or oil (to grease pan)


  1. Preheat oven to 200 degree Fahrenheit (to keep quesadillas warm while cooking batches).
  2. Heat olive oil in a pan (I used non-stick pan) over medium heat.
  3. Once oil is hot, add ground beef, chili powder, chipotle powder, oregano, cumin, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, pepper and cayenne pepper powder (if using). Heat until cooked through, breaking into crumbles with a wooden spoon, about 8 to 10 minutes or so. Stir in tomato paste and stock/broth and cook 1 to 2 minutes more.
  4. Remove beef from pan into a bowl. If there is any excess grease drain/remove.
  5. Distribute about 8 ounces (or 2 cups) of cheese among all tortillas (on one side of them).
  6. Note: Reserve the remaining 4 ounces (or 1 cup of cheese).
  7. Also, if your tortillas are smaller or larger than the size I used, the quantity you yield may vary.
  8. Distribute ground beef on top of cheese. Then, sprinkle remaining 1 cup (or 4 ounces) of cheese on top of ground beef. Fold tortilla over so you have a half moon shape.
  9. Working in batches (about 2 quesadillas per batch), spray cooking spray into pan and cook quesadillas (over medium-low heat) for about 2 minutes per side until golden brown and cheese is melted (carefully turning and watching to ensure they don’t burn). While continuing batches, place cooked quesadillas on a baking sheet in preheated oven to keep warm.
  10. Cut each half moon (quesadilla) in half. Serve with salsa, guacamole and/or sour cream. Enjoy!
  11. Note: If you have any leftovers, properly store in an airtight container in the refrigerator and use within 2 to 4 days, reheating when ready to enjoy.

Philly steak cheese fries

Philly steak cheese fries

 A savory steak, pepper, & onion mixture coated in a creamy, cheesy sauce all resting on a mound of crispy crinkle-cut fries. Philly Cheesesteak Fries can be shared with friends at your Super Bowl gathering or, if you’re like me, you just make them for dinner.



  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • 2 cups milk, warmed
  • 8 ounces white american cheese, cubed
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground pepper (white or black)


  • 1 bag frozen crinkle-cut fries
  • 1 pound ribeye steak (see note)
  • 2 tablespoons oil, divided
  • 1 medium green bell pepper, sliced 1/8″ thick
  • 1 medium onion, sliced 1/8″ thick
  • 1 recipe Cheese Sauce


Place steak in freezer for about 45 minutes. Once firm, slice into thin 1/8″ strips, the thinner the better, really. Coat in 1 tablespoon oil and set aside.

Cook fries per package instructions; keep warm.


Melt butter in medium saucepan.

Once bubbling has subsided add flour and cook for 1-2 minutes until light brown.

Slowly add warm milk to butter-flour mixture, stirring constantly. Cook 4-5 minutes until thickened.

Remove from heat and slowly mix in cubed cheese until melted.

Cover and cook on the lowest heat possible until it fully incorporates, stirring periodically. Keep warm.


Preheat large saute pan over high heat.

Add meat to pan and cook, over high heat, until no longer red.

Remove from pan and set aside.

Return pan to heat, add additional oil (if necessary), and add the peppers and onions.

Cook, stirring often, until peppers are softened and onions are browned.

Return meat to pan, stirring into the pepper and onion mixture.

Cook until meat, peppers, & onions are caramelized. Remove from heat.


Place cooked fries on a platter or sheet pan (see note).

Scoop meat mixture over fries.

Pour half of cheese sauce over fries and meat.

Serve remaining sauce on the side.


Since the meat and vegetables are cooked over high heat, I recommend having everything prepped and ready to go before you heat your saute pan. This will reduce the chances of accidentally overcooking any of the components.

I prefer ribeye steak, but you could substitute sirloin, top round, or even ground beef for the ribeye.

I cook the fries on a parchment paper-lined sheet pan and serve the whole thing directly from the pan.

I’ve combined my favorite velvety cheese sauce with a combination of broccoli & rice and baked it until bubbly. The result is a side (or a quick meatless meal that my whole family loves)!

How Do You Make Broccoli Rice Casserole

Don’t let the homemade sauce scare you away from giving this recipe a try, this from scratch cheese sauce tastes amazing (much better than just adding in a can of soup)!

  1. The sauce for this recipe starts with a roux (which is just butter and flour cooked and milk added). Let the butter and flour cook for a few minutes before adding milk for the best flavor.
  2. Slowly stir in milk a bit at a time while whisking and cook until thick and bubbly. Add cheeses and stir until melted and creamy.
  3. Toss cheese sauce with broccoli and rice and bake in a casserole dish.


  • 6 cups fresh broccoli cut into bite sized pieces
  • 2 cups cooked white rice
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 3/4 cup onion diced (about 1 small)
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon each garlic & black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • salt to taste
  • 3 tablespoons cream cheese
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese divided


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Cook onion and butter on medium-low heat until softened and translucent. Stir in flour, garlic powder and pepper. Cook an additional 2 minutes.
  3. Gradually pour in milk while whisking. Continue whisking over medium heat until thick and bubbly. Remove from heat and add dry mustard, paprika, cream cheese and 1 1/2 cups cheddar cheese. Stir until melted.
  4. Place broccoli in boiling water for about 2 minutes. You still want it slightly crisp as it cooks more in the oven.
  5. Stir together rice, broccoli and cheese sauce. Place in a greased 2 qt casserole dish. Top with remaining cheese and bake 35 minutes or until bubbly and cheese lightly browned.
