Creamy Spinach and Cheese Green Chile Enchiladas

Lent is here, which means for me and the other Catholic's we are not able to eat meat on Friday's. I'm not going to lie, I'm sick of eating the same Lent food at my house. Tuna Salad, Tuna Casserole, Mac and Cheese. So I went searching for a new recipe. I found these enchiladas & you better believe these will be made outside of lent, they were so delicious!

Sheet Pan Eggs for Breakfast Sandwiches

If you are like me, I hate mornings. I don't have time to make breakfast for myself. So I usually buy breakfast or make breakfast and freeze it to grab and go.

I had some Pillsbury Biscuits that I were about to expire, so I actually decided to bake those and make breakfast sandwiches to freeze and instead of making individual eggs for each sandwich on the stove. I found this great recipe for sheet pan eggs. Let me tell you, when I make bulk breakfast sandwiches, I will also use this recipe. It is so easy to make and you get plenty of sandwiches on it.

There will be 2 recipes...Sheet Pan Eggs and Breakfast Sandwiches.

OLIVE GARDEN COPYCAT ZUPPA TOSCANA

I love Zuppa Toscana, it by far my favorite soup that Olive Garden makes. So I searched and searched for a recipe. The one thing, that I don't like in the soup is the potatoes, so I substitute the potatoes for Cauliflower. It is just as delicious, you definitely don't miss the potatoes. Of course, you like potatoes, please add them. Adding the Cauliflower also makes the soup just a little more healthier.

Zucchini Dill Pancake

I love Summer for the Fresh Vegetables you get to grow. One of my favorite vegetables are Zucchini. One night, I was craving pancakes and so I thought I would create a new pancake recipe. Zucchini Dill Pancakes, they are simple and delicious!

Here is the Recipe:

Ingredients:
2-3 cups of shredded Zucchini 
Your favorite Pancake Batter- I use Heart healthy Bisquick
Salt
1-2 teaspoon of dill
1-2 teaspoon of Onion Powder
Cooking spray
Butter

Instructions:
Clean your zucchini and shred the zucchini to get about 2-3 cups of shredded zucchini. 
Place the shredded zucchini in a colander and sprinkle salt on the zucchini. Place colander in sink and let sit for 20 minutes. The salt helps absorb the liquid.

After 20 minutes, take the zucchini and place in a paper towel and squeeze out the rest of liquid. Once you have squeezed out most of the liquid, place the shredded zucchini in the pancake batter.
Stir the zucchini and pancake batter well. Add the d…
