Kristina from Love and Zest{Not Your Mama’s} Potato Chip Chicken Casserole

“This recipe for Potato Chip Chicken Casserole has been around for generations. It’s one that my grandma made my mama when she was young and one that my mama prepared on a weeknight to feed our family of six growing up. And now, of course, I’m reinventing their classic Potato Chip Chicken Casserole to give it a face lift and using better-for-you ingredients to fit our healthier lifestyles. Now I can feel good serving this well-loved Potato Chip Chicken Casserole to my family.”

Angie from Eclectic Recipes – Meatball Stuffed Shells with Spinach

“Now that fall is officially here, I’ve been thinking more and more about hearty comfort food recipes. Pasta is by far my favorite comfort food, and you can make it in so many ways. My son’s favorite way is to make stuffed manicotti or shells like I’ve done here.I decided to make these stuffed shells with meatballs and mozzarella. To get this recipe started you need just a few ingredients – Rosina meatballsBirdseye SpinachGalbani Mozzarella, a package of large shells and a jar of your favorite pasta sauce.”

Dawn from CuteFettiPierogi Nachos

“Now that we’re almost in the swing of things with back to school, keeping dinner delicious and exciting has been on my mind. The best meal moments happen when I get a little creative and these Pierogi Nachos were an easy win. With the help of Mrs. T’s Pierogies, this delish addition to dinner can be made in just minutes. Seriously ready in less than 25 minutes and that’s just monumental around here.”

Billy from Chef Billy Parisi – Oven Roasted Whole Curry Chicken with Vegetables and Rice

“Now that school is back in session I’ve been looking to get more creative with simple to prepare meals.  Not that I wasn’t before, it’s just that I had a lot more time during the summer because there was no urgency around exact times to eat dinner.  Now that my daughter is in school I’m all about convenience and bold flavors, which can sometimes be difficult to do.  While most people think simple and delicious should be done in under 30 minutes, I lean more towards an hour or less except of course when it comes to braising things in the oven like this Oven Roasted Whole Curry Chicken with Vegetables and Rice, or cooking in a slow cooker.”
