“OMG Chicken” and Creamy Skillet Corn

OMG ChickenI stumbled across a pin titled OMG Chicken on pinterest and it sounded too easy not to try.  It had a broken link and I couldn’t find the dish on the website it was pinned from; fortunately the directions were in the pin description.  I cut it in half for a quick and easy dinner for two…well, I’m a vegetarian so it’s dinner + lunch for my husband.  He loved it, though!  And with how easy it was to prepare, I can definitely see myself making this again.  I served it with a creamy skillet corn that was amazing and  just might be is definitely my new favorite way to serve corn!OMG Chicken

Easy Creamy Italian Pasta

pasta2This was such an easy dish to prepare and tasted awesome – great for a rushed lunch or dinner!  My nieces and husband loved it, and I was definitely impressed with how good it tasted.  You could even make the Italian dressing mix yourself with a copycat recipe (there’s one here).  I found the recipe on pinterest, but the link had been removed; fortunately the caption had all of the instructions.  I didn’t have heavy cream on hand, so I upped the butter and used milk instead (the recipe called for 1/2 cup butter and 1/2 cup cream).
