Chocolate Pudding Pie with Pretzel Crust and Peanut Butter Whipped Cream

Ok, I missed Pi day last week but it’s not too late to make pie, right? This pie is a life-changer. The salty-sweet crunchy pretzel crust is the base of a chocolate pudding pie topped with homemade light and fluffy peanut butter whipped cream.  The idea for this pie came to me in a dream (I know…ridiculous..) and I have a feeling I’ll be dreaming about it a lot more now that I’ve actually made and eaten it!

Roasted Lemon-Herb Chicken Thighs

This chicken is heavenly. It’s somehow both rich and light and full of flavor. My husband said that this chicken made him “reevaluate his life”.  I’m not entirely sure what he meant, but I’m 99% sure it was a good thing. Crispy brown skin, tons of lemony juice, and tenderly moist meat make this one of my favorite (and super easy) weeknight meals.

Mixed Berry Oat Muffins with Lemon Sugar

 

These muffins are packed full of berries—a berry in every bite!  The flour used for these is comprised entirely of gluten-free oats.  You would think they would be dense, but they come out of the oven nice and fluffy. The sweet and tart lemon sugar topping pairs perfectly with the sweet and tart berries inside. These are a great weekend morning welcome into spring!

Whipped Vanilla Honey Butter

 

I’m sorry for this post. This butter is about to become your new favorite addiction (it’s definitely mine!) We can all blame my friend Olivia, who evilly introduced me to this at the party we threw for our friend’s birthday last month. I’m pretty sure I saw some people eating it straight out of their spoons. She found it at Costco, but I had all of the ingredients in my kitchen, so I figured “why not?”

Chicken Taco Sweet Potato Skins

 These potato skins are packed full of flavor and still manage to be pretty healthy.  They combine lots of ingredients you would expect to find in a taco with the heavenly warmth of baked sweet potatoes.  The tomatoes with green chiles and salsa verde really pack a tasty punch. Also, anything I’m allowed to top with sour cream and cheese is okay by me. After just a few bites in, they were already becoming one of my favorite weeknight meals!

Bacon Ranch Green Chile Dip

 

This is one of the best dips I have ever had.  And it is SUPER easy.  Sour cream, a ranch mix packet, some bacon, pepper jack cheese, and a small can of diced green chiles  are all you need.  It’s perfect if you haven’t had time to think of something to bring to your Super Bowl parties this Sunday.  It’s also perfect if you already have everything planned out, because you NEED this dip in your life.

Greek Yogurt Egg Salad

 

Yeah, egg salad is kind of boring, but this one is the best! So good you can have it a couple times a week, like my husband does.  And it’s made with Greek yogurt instead of mayonnaise, which makes it a little bit lighter-tasting and healthier than your regular ol’ egg salad.  And it’s more tangy, too, which I think pairs perfectly with the mustard (and you know how much I love mustard). I may be a bit biased though, because…
