Creamy Cajun Stuffed Shells

Creamy Cajun Stuffed Shells

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!

Mushroom Ricotta Flatbread Pizza

Mushroom Ricotta Flatbread Pizza

Yanno what’s shocking sometimes? The amount of money that restaurants command on their appetizer or lunch (and sometimes dinner) flatbreads! I’ve seen them from $9.99 on up to $14.99, and I think it’s cray cray! I started making pizzas a long time ago (one of my faves is on my site) and love to make pizza as a way to use up a few leftovers. And often I’ll make extra of something just so I can make pizza. And the same goes for making flatbreads. That’s how this Mushroom Ricotta Flatbread Pizza came about.

Smoked Salmon Cheesecake – this is 1/2 recipe made in a baby cheesecake pan.
