Crustless Sun-Dried Tomato Quiche

I grew up with big breakfasts. My Dad always liked to make the works on the weekends and he was good at it.  Fried potatoes with onions, a big platter of fried eggs, sausage patties, toast-everything a good breakfast purist would want.  And you wouldn’t believe how perfect my Dad can make…

Breakfast Stackers

When I lived in San Diego, I used to meet up with my friend and fellow Navy wife, Karen, at this bar and grill.  For the life of me, I can NOT remember the name of the place (I think it had something to do with panning for gold…) but the place…

Loaded Roasted Pepper Hummus Sandwich

It is hard for me to convey just how spectacular the combination of these flavors are.  The only thing I have been able to come up with is, thats so good, you will want to eat it even when you are pregnant and so sick the though of a sip of water…

Root Beer BBQ Sauce

Before we get to the amazing recipe pictured above (think ribs, bbq chicken, kabobs, a sauce for burgers…) I wanted to take a second and say thanks! Brittany’s Pantry is all about sharing with you my most successful recipes.  I created this blog so that my friends and family had access to…

Cucumber Stackers & Packing Kitchen Essentials

Yes, I am sharing a recipe of sorts, but that isn’t what this blog post is really about.  This blog post is about two things: The magic of what you can come up with when faced with limited kitchen utensils, and what you should pack so that you at least have those…

Slow Cooker Butter Style Chicken

Branching out of your comfort zone is never easy.  Wether it is trying a new fashion trend (No, not everyone can wear skinny jeans.) or talking to people you don’t know at a party (The weather is a safe topic…) or reading a book from a section you don’t normally pick from…

Chicken W/Sweet & Zesty Raisin Sauce

I have mentioned before that sometimes, you can find fantastic recipes in unusual places.  One of my favorite spots to search and skim for hidden ideas are product websites.  For example, the Land O’Lakes site is loaded with anything and everything you ever wanted to do with butter!  And did you know…

Fettuccini W/Sausage & Bell Peppers

As I look at this picture above, I can’t help but smile. Yes, it is a pile of saucy pasta with spicy sausage and fresh, sweet bell peppers (read: plate full of goodness) but that isn’t the reason for the grin stretching across my face.  Ok.  Fine.  It is a part of…

Mediterranean Quinoa Salad

There are so many things I love about this dish, that I just…like…I can’t even deal. This might sound weird, but the fact that I finished this recipe just in time for summer is really the best part.  Because now I, and of course you, can enjoy it all. season. long.  *sigh*…

Upside-Down Sausage & Mushroom Pizza Casserole

Quite simply, sometimes a recipe will just surprise you.  Much like the skinny jean craze.  I didn’t see that coming. Anyway, I was watching Food Network about a million years ago, and saw Robin Miller make a version of this dish.  What I liked about it was that it used a few shortcuts…

Creamy Tomato Soup

So.  If you are a regular reader of Brittany’s Pantry, you know that I am not the biggest fan of soup.  My husband and kids?  Yes.  Me?  No.  Unless it is ice cream, I would rather eat meals that require a fork.  However, if you know that about me, you also know…

Chicken Tamale Casserole

I never really noticed how unflattering casseroles are until I started photographing them.  Can I have a show of hands please?  Who else has this problem?  Anyone? In spite of that, this recipe is just too good.  I absolutely have to share it with you guys!  In these pictures, it is hard…

My ‘Go To’ Sloppy Joe

One of the reasons I started blogging was because people would regularly ask me to pass along the recipes that I make all the time; recipes that were my ‘go to’ recipes because they were simple, straight-forward, and tasted good.  Well, BEHOLD!  This recipe is just that.  Classic and great using regular…

Creamy Penne W/Shrimp & New Holiday Traditions

Several years ago, when Evelyn was around three, she was sitting with me and watching Giada make this pasta on her Food Network show.  This was not unusual.  She is six now and still watches cooking shows with me; commenting on dishes like a seasoned chef.  But this particular time, she turned…

Open Faced Tuna Melt

Hi all! Just a quick post to clue you in to one of my most favorite comfort foods.  Gaze upon the Open Faced Tuna Melt. Now, for any of you reading this who happen to be my siblings, I realize you may think of this dish as unremarkable.  We did, after all,…
