Paleo & GF Pizza Casserole

This recipe.  *sigh* I tell ya… This recipe is a supahstar! (Said in my best Molly Shannon voice from SNL.) If you have never tried spaghetti squash before, this is your recipe!  Read on! Truthfully, I have never been a big fan of spaghetti squash. I have only tried it a few…

Grilled Tomato & Bacon Bruschetta

Living in South Carolina means lots of sunshine and an abundance of outdoor living spaces. My family and I, along with any guests that stop by, are most often on the porch enjoying the breezes, so whenever I have the opportunity to make meals outside and not heat up the house, I…

College Pasta

Have you ever noticed that the dishes that grace your table are such a representation of your life that it is almost like a culinary scrapbook.  Let me explain… Years ago when I was in college (go figure), I lived in an old, yellow house just off campus.  The floor was so…

Weeknight Marinara: How To Make Store-Bought Sauce Taste Like Homemade

If you could smell what I smell right now, you would swear I had spent hours in the kitchen chopping, dicing, mincing, and stirring my way to the awesome sauce you see above.  If you could taste what is in this picture, you just might start searching my house for the Italian…

Carnita Nachos W/Chipotle-Lime Crema

So.  There is this big game coming up.  Maybe you have heard of it.  Its called the Super Bowl. I only mention it because I happened to be visiting some hardcore football fans the weekend the competing teams were selected and I actually witnessed the games.   Not being a huge sports…

Carolina Cobb Salad

Well hello! For those of you who are noticing that this is the second salad recipe I have posted in a week, I would like to reply with, yes, I realize that too.  And I will not apologize for it, dang it!! You can never have too many fresh, flavor-filled salads in…

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*…
