Monte Cristo Sandwiches - easy recipe using leftover Easter ham! These sandwiches are the perfect combo of sweet and salty! Great for breakfast, lunch, or dinner!

Happy almost Friday!

Let’s continue our Easter countdown!

I really love Easter. I never list it when talking about my fave holidays (because people always ask what my favorite holidays are…) but every year I go Easter crazy.

I definitely think it has the best candy, the cutest decorations, and, of course, the best food.

I love a big Easter dinner with ham and mashed potatoes and… okay, I really just care about the ham and mashed potatoes.

Anyway.

 I thought I would share a fun way to change up your leftover ham sandwich game today!

Apple Cider Bourbon Glazed Ham

I used the most epic ham ever for these sandwiches. Oh, you thought all hams were created equal?

No.

You are wrong.

CUREMASTER RESERVE™ is a limited edition, small-batch line of hams that are only available online and are delivered right to your door. There are only 2,400 of them and all are hand-crafted and hardwood smoked to perfection.

The cutest Easter cupcakes! Chocolate cupcakes decorated with chocolate frosting and chocolate sprinkles! With candy eggs in the nest!

Guys.

Easter is next weekend.

NEXT WEEKEND.

Are you ready?

I am SO not and I start panicking and then I remember how last Easter we were living in an Army hotel with all 5 of us plus 2 dogs in one room and that we somehow managed to still pull of an awesome Easter. And I feel a little better about being totally not prepared.

One thing, though, that you can always count on me for is desserts. I am fully prepared to make ALL THE EASTER DESSERTS.

Especially because my pantry is always stocked with Pillsbury baking mixes and frosting. Every time I’m in Walmart, I wander down the baking aisle to see what’s new and while I’m there, I grab a few more boxes of my fave Pillsbury mixes and a few cans of frosting. It’s so nice to have them in the pantry for last minute get togethers or just an afternoon treat.

I think instead of dyeing Easter eggs this year, I may make a ton of cupcakes and decorate those instead! Just as much fun and so much tastier!

And can we talk about how cute these Easter Nest Cupcakes are?! They are so easy – I used my favorite Pillsbury Moist Supreme Cake Mix in chocolate and the Pillsbury Creamy Supreme frosting. And then to decorate, I just place some chocolate sprinkles down in a circle shape to look like a nest and then placed some candy eggs in the center.

So cute. My kids loved this idea and were thrilled to help out with them!

Before you head to Walmart for your Pillsbury mixes and frosting, make sure you download the Ibotta app so you can save $.75 on 3 Pillsbury products! And if you need some Easter baking inspiration, check out more ways to #MixUpAMoment on the Pillsbury Pinterest board.

This post is brought to you courtesy of Hillshire Farm® but all the opinions and content are mine. Cajun Tortellini Alfredo - delicious 20 minute dinner recipe! Tortellini and smoked sausage in a delicious cajun alfredo sauce!

Heeeey guys! Today I have a recipe that includes all my favorite things.

Smoked sausage, cheese, and more cheese! And guess what. It’s so easy and will take you no time at all!

I used the Hillshire Farm® Beef Smoked Sausage in this recipe. This smoked sausage is one thing I know my kids will never complain about – I’ve been known to just brown it up and serve it with barbecue sauce when I’m not feeling like cooking and they really love that!

But for this recipe, I browned it up with onions and garlic and then tossed in some Cajun seasoning. I used heavy cream and Parmesan cheese to make the Alfredo part of the recipe and then tossed in some cheese tortellini.

Ultimate comfort food! This is exactly the kind of meal I like this time of year. Plus, it was ready in less than 20 minutes! It’s perfect for a weeknight or a night you just don’t feel like being in the kitchen for an hour.

Happy Monday!

How’s the time change treating you?

Won’t lie, I slept until 9:42 yesterday morning. Can we talk about how awesome it is to have kids that can pour their own cereal and entertain themselves for a little while? I feel for all of you with tiny ones.

It was also really nice to have daylight for so long! It was almost 8 by the time the sun finally faded. You know what that means? Food bloggers are no longer cooking dinner at 2 pm! Yay sunlight!

Like I mentioned this weekend, the kids are officially on Spring Break and I’m officially not leaving the house until it’s over.

(Don’t judge me – you try going anywhere with 3 boys!)

So in an effort to avoid the grocery store, I have breakfast for dinner planned for several nights this week. And these Peanut Butter Banana Pancakes are definitely on the menu! They use ingredients I always have on hang, they take no time at all to cook up, and my kids are obsessed with them.

I mean, what’s not to love about peanut butter and bananas?

Happy Saturday, y’all!

 

It is officially Spring Break here and we have SO MUCH going on.

Just kidding.

I’m not leaving my house again until the kids go back to school.

(Except for dog walks and coffee runs. You know, the important stuff.)

I bought so much yesterday at the grocery store just so I don’t have to go again for 10 days. The goal is to spring clean the house, take lots of naps, and watch all 57 seasons of House of Cards.

I’ve watched the first episode of that show 3 times now and I still go, “Huh?” at the end of it each time. So I’m gonna sit down and watch it without distractions and I’m gonna like it.

This week’s menu plan is going to make staying home really easy. Lots of easy meals plus a couple desserts and a delicious breakfast!
