Mexican Shredded Chicken Stuffed Peppers

I’m food crushing on my Mexican Shredded Chicken Stuffed Peppers! I’ve decided they’re like the perfect dish for this time of year when it’s not quite but almost fall weather and we’re alternating between hot, sunny days and cool crisp ones with a good amount of cold, drizzly wet and gloomy days sprinkled in here and there. Actually, I think there was one day where I started out with the heat on (mostly to dry the house out and take off that chill) and ended up turning on the air! It’s been that crazy.

Ok – we’ve had a couple of cooler days here in Minnesota, and I recently made a lot of my Grilled Blackened Cajun Chicken Breasts so I could use them to spin off several easy peasy meals that would be perfect for hot summer days. And I made a few but then I deviated! I couldn’t resist making these gorgeous Creamy Cajun Stuffed Shells with that final bit of chicken. I’m so excited about them I couldn’t hold off for a more appropriate season – these are probably going down as one of my most fave recipes ever on my site!

Sensational Cajun Chicken Salad

What actually makes this Sensational Cajun Chicken Salad Cajun? It’s the Grilled Blackened Cajun Chicken Breasts but beyond that, I’ve used the kind of old-fashioned but always good Sensational Salad Dressing (it has Romano cheese in it) that hails from Baton Rouge, Louisiana. While a salad like this isn’t the traditional way to use the dressing, that dressing does make this salad sensational!

Lemon Pepper Vegetable Saute

Sometimes you need just a drop-dead simple side, and especially this time of year (August) why not take advantage of all the summer veggies to be had at their freshest (and cheapest) and in abundance? That’s where this Lemon Pepper Vegetable Saute comes into play. I know sheet pan veggies are all the rage these days, but I chose to use a skillet- fast, easy and sometimes, you just don’t want to heat up that oven.

So how about it guys, do you read magazines any longer? I get so much information online that they sometimes seem obsolete. And yet I manage to subscribe to a couple of food magazines because they are just so inexpensive. And they inspire me – when I manage to get them open and actually read them! That’s how I fell in love with the idea of this Moqueca Brazilian Seafood Stew – I saw it in Food & Wine Magazine.
