Bubble Up Biscuit Pizza

It’s safe to say that a bulk of people enjoy pizza. For when you don’t always have time to whip up a fresh pizza from scratch, this bubble up biscuit pizza makes a perfect fall-back. 

Bubble Up Biscuit Pizza

We are big on pizza in this house. And while I hate to be presumptuous, I assume that most people also enjoy pizza. I’d go so far as to call it my favorite meal, hands down. So any time I see a dish that has the word pizza in it, I’m trying it.

When Kita posted this bubble up skillet pizza, I pinned it for later because pizza = love. And when I eventually made it, I decided that bubble up biscuit pizza is essentially one of my most favorite quick, easy weeknight meals. It has all the flavors of a traditional pizza without any of the annoying hassle of working out the dough. Save that for the professional and give this easy, hassle-free version a try.

Bubble Up Biscuit Pizza

The recipe should be considered guidelines, since pizza is incredibly subjective based on personal tastes. Add pepperoni, some sautéed onions or peppers or – for you weirdos out there who like them – mushrooms. You could get creative and try a Hawaiian pizza or act all sassy and toss a little sriracha on it. Save it for a night when you are lazy or in a rush and try it. You’ll love the ease.

Buffalo Chicken Waffle Chip Nachos

When it comes to Super Bowl eats, there is none more quintessential than buffalo chicken in one form or another. I’m a big lover of buffalo chicken nachos and so, these crispy buffalo chicken waffle chip nachos were born. You do not want to miss out!

Buffalo Chicken Waffle Chip Nachos

Remember when I told you about that red onion jam I had on my honeymoon? It was the most amazing, epic jam ever? Second only to that was the buffalo chicken dip. It was an odd order for us, we never really order dip. See, dip is an easy thing to mess up, since there always seems to be more dip than chips or bread triangles. But this dip was perfect. The right ratio of ingredients, shredded celery on top and instead of tortillas, kettle chips.

Buffalo Chicken Waffle Chip Nachos

When the Daily Meal contacted me about their Tyson’s Chicken sponsored contest, my mind immediately went to those kettle chips and that buffalo chicken dip. But honestly, I still didn’t want dip. Nachos are more my thing and I knew those kettle chips would be so perfect as a nacho base. The recipe in itself is so simplistic, it almost feels like cheating to call it that. Kettle chips (we used a waffle cut variety), buffalo chicken tenders, celery, cheese (of the cheddar and blue variety, naturally) and a sprinkling of green onions. From start to finish, these came together in 25 minutes. The chicken is tender and spicy, cooled by the blue cheese and dressing drizzle. And the chips stay crispy with every bite.

Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 

Serves: 2
 

Ingredients
  • 6 Tyson’s buffalo chicken tenders
  • 2 ½ cups Kettle-style chips (waffle cut is ideal)
  • 1 large celery stalk, diced
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • ½ cup crumbled blue cheese
  • ¼ cup blue cheese dressing
  • 2 Tbsp. buttermilk

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees and line a baking sheet with foil. Place the tenders on the sheet and bake for 20 minutes until crispy.
  2. While the tenders bake, mix the blue cheese dressing with the buttermilk and stir until combined. This is not necessary, but I wanted my dressing to have a thinner, saucy consistency.
  3. Divide the chips between two plates. Once the tenders are finished, remove from oven and slice into chunks.
  4. Sprinkle the chunks evenly between the two plates. Top with celery, cheddar cheese and blue cheese. Sprinkle on green onions, then drizzle with dressing.

 

Whole Wheat Greek Yogurt Pecan Muffins

In the mornings, breakfast is imperative. Whole wheat Greek yogurt pecan muffins are a filling and hearty option that powers you through the day. 

Whole Wheat Greek Yogurt Pecan Muffins

Despite the fact that I just shared a muffin recipe last week, I’m sharing another one this week. And this one here, it’s special.

Now, if you know anything about me, it’s that I am passionate about Disney World. I love Mickey Mouse more than almost anything, I want to live in Disney all the time. As soon as one Disney vacation ends, the planning for the next begins. And one of my favorite parts of a Disney-centric vacation is planning out the food. There are so many great places to eat in the World and choosing only a few is a difficult task. Someone has to do it and I’m glad that someone is me, but man, it is stressful trying to cram it all in.

These muffins come straight from my mom. She’s been talking about them for years, telling me how they had them when we used to go to Disney when I was a kid and how great they were. As a kid, I was content to scarf nothing but chicken fingers and french fries at one of the 10,000 quick service eateries, all serving the same foods. So sure, these muffins probably existed then and they were probably amazing. They just did NOT fall on my radar of important things to think about while on vacation (that was reserved for meeting Mickey Mouse and buying pens with Mickey Mouse on them).

Whole Wheat Greek Yogurt Pecan Muffins

Recently while visiting, she brought up these muffins again. Now as a foodie, lover of all things delicious and nutty, I asked her for the recipe. I can’t say if they rival those of Disney fame, since I was a jerk and didn’t care then. But I can say this: these muffins are awesome. I changed up the original recipe a bit to make them healthier. No butter, just unsweetened applesauce. And no sour cream (originally, these were sour cream pecan muffins). I haven’t used actual sour cream in years, just Greek yogurt. I’d like to think these changes didn’t affect the muffins much, they taste great and have a nice, fluffy texture. The little bits of chopped pecans studded inside add a perfect textural crunch.

If you are an early morning sweet eater, don’t count on this to satisfy you. They are just a little bit sweet, not overly so. Perfect for me in the mornings.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Apple Bites

It feels a bit like cheating, sharing this with you and calling it a recipe. These bites are so simple, I think it’s better to call it guidelines. Regardless, these peanut butter chocolate chip apple bites are a perfect mid-afternoon energizer for any age.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Apple Bites

Finding delicious but healthy snacks that are also filling can sometimes be a struggle around these parts. In a quick hangry rush, grabbing a bowlful of chips or a handful of Chex Mix often takes the cake over a more suitable snack. It’s definitely something I want to remedy. This snack is ideal, since it comes together fast, packs on the protein to keep us full and has just enough chocolate to satisfy my ridiculous sweet tooth. Let’s be honest, that sweet tooth is raging and will never go away. The mini chocolate chips here do just the trick.

I pack these in plastic containers and toss them into lunch boxes in the morning. They last until lunch, when I promptly shovel them into my giant mouth. And then, I go back to work full, satisfied and light instead of weighted down by 50 pounds of potato chips and gobs of delicious but rich and heavy onion dip. Surprisingly, I’ll take the apples over the chips, thank you.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Apple Bites
 

Ingredients
  • 1 apple, cut into wedges
  • peanut butter
  • mini chocolate chips

Instructions
  1. Swipe a spoonful of peanut butter onto the top half of the apple wedges. Take a few chocolate chips and place them into the peanut butter. Serve.

 

Loaded Festive Chocolate Chip Walnut Cookies

Chocolate chip cookies are obviously a holiday classic. But this version, loaded festive chocolate chip walnut cookies, are overloaded with festive and colorful chocolate chips. If we’ve got to eat cookies, they might as well be pretty!

Loaded Festive Chocolate Chip Walnut Cookies

The holiday season means chocolate chip cookies are absolutely imperative. I know Christmas is really overloaded with cookies everywhere. But chocolate chip cookies are the most classic, the most desired, the first to disappear from every plate. You can’t go a holiday season without whipping some up. It’s just fact.

But even the most traditional of cookies and treats can use just a little tweaking now and again. For years, we used the recipe straight from the package of Nestle Tollhouse. It never failed, was always good and was easy enough to accomplish. But lately, we’ve been playing around with some cookie recipes in our house. A well-intentioned science fair project spurned this quest to find the ultimate in chocolate chip cookie ingredients. Batches were tested with cornstarch, baking powder, baking soda and any mixture of the three. It was a hard experiment but someone had to do it.

Loaded Festive Chocolate Chip Walnut Cookies

 What we’ve found is one leavener alone doesn’t do the trick. The baking soda yielded some crispy cookies, perfect for those who love the crunch. But it didn’t stand the test of time. The cookies were hard two days later. Cornstarch alone left our cookies fluffy but a bit dry. Baking powder worked out better than the rest, giving us cookies that were soft and long-lasting. But once we started playing around with the cornstarch/baking powder combo, we were wowed. These cookies were our favorites, by far. Soft and fluffy, a little chewy, perfectly tasty three days later. This is the recipe we’re using now and it doesn’t fail.

Of course, it’s Christmas so we had to go a little nuts with these. We tossed in some chopped walnuts for a great textural difference. And instead of standard chocolate chips, we used festively colored ones in red, green and swirls. But that’s not where the craziness ends. We made sure these cookies were packed to the absolute brim with chocolate chips. It is not the season for moderation, after all. And so we went with two cups of chocolate chips, plus additional swirled chips to stud the tops. Every cookie is filled with a ton of chips, allowing for maximum chocolate. What more could you really ask for at Christmas (well, except a Matthew Mcconaughey Dazed and Confused t-shirt)?
