Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Cheez-It Sandwiches Recipe

Ok, so I know this recipe sounds crazy, but TRUST ME.  These taste JUST like butterfingers, but without the hard, chewy texture of them. These are soft, yet crunchy, and they give you the sweet and saltiness that everyone craves from time to time. 

The best thing about these... THEY ARE SO DAMN EASY.  Here's how to create these bite-sized pieces of heaven:

(FYI, I used absolutely no form of measurements for the food for these, it's one of those "go with the flow" recipes)


Cheez-It crackers
Creamy peanut butter
1 containter Baker's dipping chocolate (picture shown here>>)
sprinkles for decoration, if desired


-Spread a small amount on a Cheez-it, then place another Cheez-it on top to create a "sandwich".  Repeat to make as many as you'd like.
-Melt the chocolate as directed.  Using a fork, dip each sandwich individually in the chocolate, coating fully.  Place on cooling rack and repeat with all sandwiches, sprinkling the sprinkles on top as you go.
-Put the cooling rack in the fridge for about an hour, or until chocolate has hardened. 

That's it!!

Chicken Caesar Pitas Recipe

I found this recipe on Pinterest and pinned it on my "to do recipes" board, and one night I told my hubby to look through the recipes and make a list of potential dinners he wanted me to make for the week.  This was #1 on his list, and I was ecstatic to make it for dinner- IT WAS SO EASY.  The only work you have to do is grill some chicken, that's it!


2 chicken breasts, marinaded (in Italian dressing for a couple hours) and grilled fully
Pita pockets
1 Caesar salad kit
Extra Caesar dressing, if desired


-Prepare Caesar salad.
-Slice chicken breasts into strips.
-Put a portion of the salad in your pita pockets, put chicken strips in the pitas, and drizzle with more Caesar salad.

Chicken Dinner Bake Recipe

This recipe is HANDS DOWN our new favorite comfort food recipe.  It's got everything all in one dish!  I was trying to think of something to make that had a little bit of everything in it... I wanted chicken, but then I wanted stuffing, but I also wanted mashed potatoes... And I couldn't just make a regular, classic chicken dinner, that's too plain!  I like to take things to the next level, and this recipe did just that.

I can't wait for Thanksgiving leftovers, I think I'll be making a turkey version of this :)


1 lb. chicken, cooked and shredded
1 box chicken stuffing, prepared
1-14.5 oz can chicken gravy
1-10.75 oz can cream of potato
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
salt, pepper, and parsley to taste


-Preheat oven to 375.
-In a large bowl, mix together the shredded chicken, cream of potato, and stuffing.  Spread on the bottom of a casserole dish.
-Drizzle the chicken gravy evenly on top of the chicken layer.
-Spread the mashed potatoes evenly over the top.
-Sprinkle the cheddar cheese over the top.  Season with salt, pepper, and parsley.
-Bake 15-20 minutes or until cheese is melted and slightly browned.
