This Cajun shrimp pizza is just the thing to throw together on busy nights.

This naan bread pizza has simple ingredients that make turns a simple bread into a gourmet meal!

This Cajun Shrimp Pizza is so easy and the blend of flavors is amazing!

My husband asked me the other day how I come up with recipe ideas over and over again.  That's was a good question.  Sometimes I get inspired by meals I've tried at various restaurants or recipes and images I've seen in magazines.  Sometimes I am inspired to make a variation of my recipes, or I try to simplify my mom's Greek recipes.  Occasionally they come without inspiration; they just pop into my head.  My mind is always working.  I think about food all the time.

This Cajun shrimp pizza features spiced up shrimp baked on naan bread! Dinner couldn't be simpler!

There are times where my mind is an absolute blank.  During these times I turn to Pinterest.  This is why I'm thrilled to partner with Kroger to introduce Board to Table,  an iOS app that allows you to turn the ingredients from the recipes you pinned into a ready made shopping list.  Board to Table is a new app currently only available in trial mode.  Only a limited number of customers will be able to download it, so act now!

Shop with Pin List!

The process is so simple.  You will not both the Pinterest and Board to Table apps. The Board to Table app will load all your boards and pins (If you have a lot of Pinterest pins, it might take a few minutes for all of them to load).  From here it only takes minutes to turn the ingredients found on your favorite pins into a grocery list that will appear right on your Kroger app.  Take your Kroger app with your reward card and coupons straight to Kroger.  Shopping for your favorite pinned recipes doesn't get any easier than this!

A Cajun shrimp pizza made a naan bread that takes minutes to make! Serve this as a meal or even as an appetizer!

I used one of my pins for Cajun shrimp to create this simple naan bread pizza.  This shrimp pizza recipe is easy and made with ingredients readily available.  Seasoned shrimp, peppered bacon and, peppers and feta cheese turn simple a basic idea into a pizza worthy of any fancy pizza place!  After you try this Cajun pizza, be sure to try this Cajun Shrimp Quinoa Bowl and this Cajun Shrimp Mac and Cheese!

This Cajun Shrimp Pizza can be served as an appetizer or as a meal, either way your family is going to love it!

Slow Cooker Chicken Chili https://www.lemonsforlulu.com/slow-cooker-chicken-chili/ https://www.lemonsforlulu.com/slow-cooker-chicken-chili/#respond Thu, 23 Feb 2017 11:03:18 +0000 https://www.lemonsforlulu.com/?p=26706 This slow cooker chicken chili is so easy! Let the slow cooker do all the work! This is a family pleasing recipe!

Simple ingredients and a simple cooking method make this slow cooker chicken chili a family favorite!

This slow cooker chicken chili is everything you want in a chili.  It is hearty and satisfying!

I do have to admit, I love a good kitchen gadget.  I had to have a bread machine back in the day when bread machines were all the rage.  I made exactly 6 loaves of bread with my machine before I decided that quick bread recipes were much better.  Then there was a time I wanted only to consume fancy coffee from a French Press.  So I bought one, used it twice moved on to my drip style coffee maker.

This slow cooker chicken chili is so satisfying! Let the slow cooker do all the work for you with this recipe!

Recently I purchased a waffle maker.  I've always loved the idea of making my own Belgian waffles!  And I have made delicious waffles for sure.  I made key lime waffles and browned butter waffles with spiced pears....and then my enthusiasm waned and my waffle maker went to the appliance graveyard also known as the back of my pantry.

Now I've seen Instant Pots advertised all over the place.  I am a bit intrigued.  I've always wanted a rice cooker and a pressure cooker, this little pot does all that and more.  But on the flip side it is another appliance to use and store.   The truth is, the one appliance that I could rely on over and over again has been my slow cooker.  It has always been easy to use and reliable.  It cooked this Slow Cooker Beef and Barley Soup just as well as it cooked this Apple Ginger Slow Cooker Ham.  And it served up this Slow Cooker Chicken Chili exactly the same way!

You are going to love this slow cooker chicken chili! It is so easy and so satisfying!

As with many slow cooker recipes, this chili could not be any simpler.  Chicken breasts, pinto beans, chicken broth, corn, seasoning and salsa is all you need to make a hearty, flavorful, filling chili recipe.  You could vary the beans, veggies and even the salsa because there really isn't any way you can go wrong with this easy recipe.  I was able to use all Kroger brand products in this recipe.  Yep, my slow cooker will around for a very long time!

Chili Favorites:

Creamy White Chicken Chili

Spicy White Chili

Slow Cooked Hatch Pepper Chili

Chicken Enchilada Chili

 

This slow cooker chicken chili is going to become a favorite! It is a crowd pleaser!

Pistachio Pudding Cake {Texas Sheet Cake} https://www.lemonsforlulu.com/pistachio-pudding-cake-texas-sheet-cake/ https://www.lemonsforlulu.com/pistachio-pudding-cake-texas-sheet-cake/#comments Tue, 21 Feb 2017 11:17:26 +0000 https://www.lemonsforlulu.com/?p=26654 This pistachio pudding cake is simple and amazing! This cake just melts right in your mouth!

This pistachio pudding cake is the moistest cake you've ever tasted!

It is soft and sweet and with an icing to match!

This pistachio pudding cake is so soft, it melts in your mouth! The icing is perfectly dreamy!

Last week, my 8-year old asked me if Leprechauns were real. I know the status of the Easter Bunny, Santa Claus, and the Tooth Fair since I am all of them, but I don't know anything about Leprechauns.  I've always assumed with they were fictitious, but I can't say with any certainty that Leprechauns do not exist.  Regardless, I couldn't have her questioning  Santa Claus, so for now, Leprechauns are totally real.

You are going to love this pistachio pudding cake. The simple vanilla frosting is the perfect compliment!

That discussion got me thinking that it was about time to do some fun St. Patrick's day baking.  Generally, I don't get too into St. Patty's Day. Not that I don't enjoy kicking back a few green beers, but that is the extent of my revelry.  Except when it comes to the food.  Certain green treats and Irish flavors have to be enjoyed!  Hummus Topped Irish Nachos and a Skillet Maple Irish Soda Bread were favorites from last year.  But this time around I was ready for some fun, green food, like this super easy pistachio pudding cake.

Pistachio pudding cake can be a great ending to any meal! This cake is soft, tender and sweet!

This is a Texas sheet cake style cake, meaning it isn't very thick and it is baked on a large cookie sheet.  This simple cake starts with a boxed white cake mix and obtains it's pastel green hue from a box of pistachio pudding mix.  The pudding is responsible for the color as well as the exceptionally tender and soft cake. This cake practically melts right into your mouth. This cake is made dreamier by the creamy frosting that is spread on top.  The frosting isn't any more complicated than the cake.  It is made from butter, powdered sugar, and enough milk to create a spreadable consistency.   Sprinkle pistachios on top to finish it off!

This pistachio pudding cake is the perfect way to celebrate St. Patrick's day or any day you find yourself craving cake!


This pistachio pudding cake is simple and amazing! This cake just melts right in your mouth!

Peanut butter is one of those things you never out grow.  You eat on sandwiches when you are a kid and you eat it on sandwiches as an adult; it never goes out of style.  It is just as much comfort food as is a bowl of chicken noodle soup.  I think this is because peanut butter always invokes some sort of happy memory.  It could be a memory about your old school lunch box or your mom's homemade peanut butter cookies.  No matter what it makes us happy.

This collection is for the peanut butter lovers out there! Know you are not alone, I too am a peanut butter lover!

Bahn Mi Taquito https://www.lemonsforlulu.com/bahn-mi-taquito/ https://www.lemonsforlulu.com/bahn-mi-taquito/#comments Thu, 16 Feb 2017 11:29:22 +0000 https://www.lemonsforlulu.com/?p=26567 Bahn Mi meets taquito in this easy salmon recipe!

 Get all the flavor of a Vietnamese Bahn Mi sandwich but with a minimal amount of effort!  Serve these fusion taquitos as a meal with a light side or as an appetizer!  But don't forget the dipping sauce!

Bahn Mi meets taquito in this easy salmon recipe!

I've partnered with Chicken of the Sea to bring you this original recipe. 

Every once in a while someone will ask me how book sales are going.  I'm always a little taken aback by this question.  For one thing, it takes me a minute to figure out what they are asking,   When I figure it out and remember I published a cookbook,  I have to admit that I have no idea how my book sales are going.  And I don't even care.  The only reason I agreed to write the book was for my kids.  I have something physical, something tangible that I can pass on to them.  Recipes have a way of living on; my kids will always be able to hold a little piece of me.

Bahn Mi Taquito is where east meets west! This simple recipe is fresh tasting and so simple!

My favorite recipe from that sandwich cookbook was my vegetarian Bahn Mi.  Those sandwiches were packed with mushrooms and veggies that were soaked in a rice vinegar mixture.  Jalapenos, cool cucumbers, and a Sriracha mayo were placed on top.  I made that sandwich several times during the testing process, and I have made it countless times since publication.  I often try to experiment with fusion recipes like these fusion Grilled Steak Tacos or this Asian BBQ Pork Taco Boats.  Those experiments, as well as my favorite cookbook sandwich recipe, were the inspiration behind these fusion taquitos!

This Bahn Mi taquito is the perfect way to eat more seafood! The flavor is fresh and delicious!

These taquitos are the express version of a Bahn Mi sandwich!  They are filled with the classic veggies like carrots, daikon radish, and cucumbers.  Since I'm always trying new ways to get more fish into my diet, I also added Chicken of The Sea Sriracha Flavored Salmon Pouch.  The salmon was seasoned perfectly and added the right amount of spice.  Be sure to serve the simple avocado ranch dipping sauce on the side to temper the heat from the salmon!

Bahn Mi’s have so much flavor! This fusion recipe is a great mix of ingredients and they are so easy!

The salmon pouches make serving seafood to your family easy and quick and since dietary guidelines advise Americans to eat 2-3 servings of seafood per week for good health, it makes sense to keep these pouches handy!  Chicken of the Sea is helping fans work towards a healthy lifestyle by providing sustainable seafood products and easy recipes.  Chicken of the Sea makes it easy to Go Fish!

From now until March 15, fans can enter to win $100 Visa gift card and Chicken of the Sea resource deck of cards.  Be sure to check out their Facebook page and comment with your tips recipes, facts, and inspiration to be entered to win!

These Bahn Mi Taquitos are so good! The salmon and the veggies make them irresistable!

Tex Mex Chicken and Dumplings Recipe https://www.lemonsforlulu.com/tex-mex-chicken-dumplings-recipe/ https://www.lemonsforlulu.com/tex-mex-chicken-dumplings-recipe/#comments Tue, 14 Feb 2017 11:11:16 +0000 http://www.lemonsforlulu.com/?p=26552 This chicken and dumplings recipe has comfort written all over it! You are going to love this version!

This chicken and dumplings recipe is anything but ordinary!  This recipe is filled with spices, beans, and chicken that get topped with Tex-Mex homemade dumplings!

This chicken and dumplings recipe has comfort written all over it! You are going to love this version!

Punxsutawney Phil is losing his edge.  He "says" six more weeks of winter but apparently, Mother Nature wasn't privy to the information because each day feels warmer than the last.  We are either extremely lucky for having dodged a wintery bullet or the worst is yet to come.  The warm temps have been lovely, but it's February!  I still want to hide behind my puffy sweatshirts and yoga pants.  Each warm day reminds me that before long I'll be forced to get my body ready for swimsuit season and I'm not mentally ready for swimsuit season.

Chicken and Dumplings get a spicy twist! The dumplings are so easy to make!

Chicken and dumplings recipe get a spiced up kick! This recipe is so easy and so satisfying!

Nevermind the weather I'm still all about comfort food, which is why I made this easy Tex-Mex Chicken and Dumplings recipe.  This is the kind of recipe that makes you feel warm and cozy all over, just like my big puffy sweatshirt.  This soup is a soup that eats like a meal.  It has big, bold, flavorful spices like paprika, cumin, and cayenne pepper that livens up homely black bean, veggies and shredded chicken.  The base is hearty and satisfying, but it's the dumplings that turn this soup into something bigger and better.

Chicken and dumpling recipe get an update! This Tex-Mex version is going to become a favorite!

Homemade dumplings are so easy to make.  All you need is flour, baking powder, milk, butter and any seasoning you see fit. In this case, I seasoned these dumplings very simply with cilantro; a Tex-Mex must.  The trick to adding the dumplings is to add them right after your soup comes to a slow boil.  As it simmers, add dumplings one small spoonful at a time. The batter will make enough dumplings to fill your pot, but not enough to overcrowd your soup!  Add Tex-Mex Hushpuppies and Tex-Mex Spinach and Artichoke Dip to complete your spiced up meal!

Chicken and dumplings get a modern update! This Tex-Mex version has lots of bold flavor!


[mpprecipe-recipe:1444]

This chicken and dumplings recipe gets a Tex-Mex update! You are going to love the bold flavor from the spies and the veggies! This soup satisfies the belly and the soul!

Skillet Meatball Lasagna https://www.lemonsforlulu.com/skillet-meatball-lasagna/ https://www.lemonsforlulu.com/skillet-meatball-lasagna/#comments Fri, 10 Feb 2017 11:37:43 +0000 http://www.lemonsforlulu.com/?p=26521 This easy meatball lasagna is a one to wonder! Your family is going to love this meal and you are going to love how easy it is!

Lasagna is a favorite, but it can take way too long! This easy skillet meatball lasagna is my "lazy man's" version of a family favorite!

This easy meatball lasagna is a one to wonder! Your family is going to love this meal and you are going to love how easy it is!

Lasagna is one of the classic meals that has held up against the test of time. My parents grew up eating lasagna, I grew up eating lasagna and now my kids are growing up with lasagna. It’s one of the recipes that tend to satisfy most people.

This meatball lasagna is the best! I'm not sure what's better the flavor or how easy it is to prepare!

This is what I love about lasagna: 1. It is such a hearty dish.   The layers of meat, cheese, and all that sauce make this a stick-to-your-ribs sort of meal. 2. This is the meal to make when you need to serve a crowd. Every lasagna recipe I have tried makes enough to feed a small army. And since it is so filling, you can serve up smaller squares. 3. The leftovers taste just as good as the day it was served and finally 4. You can make so many variations of traditional lasagna. You can use ground beef or ground turkey, pepperoni or Italian sausage. You could change the pasta and make this baked spaghetti lasagna.  You can add spinach or other veggies and you can vary the cheese. You could even make a white sauce and use chicken like I did in this Skillet White Chicken Lasagna. It would certainly appear as though lasagna is the perfect meal.

This easy meatball lasagna recipe is going to be your new favorite meal! The best part is it is made in one skillet!

This is what I do not like about lasagna. It is NOT a quick recipe. You need to plan ahead if you are going to make lasagna. You have to prep the meat, work on each layer and then allow time for the lasagna to bake. 2. This dish is not the best for small families. Even if you like leftovers, you’ll be eating lasagna for days. 3. Lasagna is not an ideal dish for those who are lactose intolerant or who just don’t care for cheese (like my own kids). So I’ve decided to make a lasagna recipe that takes what I love about lasagna and eliminates what I don’t like.

This skillet meatball lasagna recipe is so simple and quick, your family will love it! You will love all the extra time you will have on your hands!

This skillet lasagna recipe is made in less than 30 minutes and in only one pot! This recipe only requires a handful of ingredients and I’ll bet you have them in your kitchen already! Sprinkle cheese on top and broil until bubbly if desired or just serve as in. This skillet meal is going to be added to my gyro skillet and my meatball skillet meal as one of my favorites! It is family-pleasing and easy for busy nights!

This meatball lasagna recipe is all made in one skillet! It's simple, delicious and leaves only one pot to clean!

This recipe can be found on Food Fanatic.

While you are there, check out these skillet meals!

Greek Gyro Skillet Recipe

*NOTE* I used Farm Rich Frozen Italian Meatballs for this recipe.  I thought they were the perfect flavor and size for this dish.

This meatball lasagna is the perfect recipe for those busy days! Simple ingredients make this meal a breeze without sacrificing any flavor!

Salted Caramel No Bake Eclair Cake https://www.lemonsforlulu.com/salted-caramel-no-bake-eclair-cake/ https://www.lemonsforlulu.com/salted-caramel-no-bake-eclair-cake/#comments Thu, 09 Feb 2017 11:03:54 +0000 http://www.lemonsforlulu.com/?p=26505 This no bake eclair cake is the best! The luscious caramel flavor will have you coming back for seconds!

Layered desserts can be amazing, especially when they are as easy as this no bake eclair cake!

Graham crackers, caramel flavored pudding, and chocolate frosting make this dessert loved by all who try it!

This no bake eclair cake is the best! The luscious caramel flavor will have you coming back for seconds!

 For years and years and years I refused to eat pudding.  In fact, I would hardly even look at a box of pudding, that's how much of a hater I was.   The worst part was I turned my kids into haters too!  Anytime they found out they were served something made with pudding, they'd turn up their noses and turn away.  In essence, I created food snobs, shame on me.  A few years ago I added pudding to the batter of these Cherry Coke Cupcakes and these pistachio pudding cookies.  After tasting each of those, I conceded that maybe pudding wasn't as evil as I thought,  I mean, at least it's good for baked goods.  Even the kids agreed (they ate a lot of those cookies).  So I added pudding to more and more desserts.  Each dessert seemed better than the last.

This no bake eclair cake could not be simpler! It only takes a hand full of ingredients and it tastes incredible!

Now I have a line up of pudding filled desserts that have since stolen my heart.  I realized that it wasn't so much that I hated pudding for pudding's sake, it was that I hated plain pudding.  There's a huge difference.  This no bake eclair cake highlights all the different ways to love pudding.

This no bake eclair cake is the best! It takes minutes to prepare, but the taste will have you coming back again and again!

One thing I love about this dessert is the simplicity and the accessibility.  This dessert starts with humble graham crackers as the "cake" layer.  I used vanilla pudding as my filling to which I added caramel and a good pinch of sea salt.   A sweet layer of chocolate frosting officially turns this creamy dessert into cake!  Each ingredient can be found easily in any grocery store (in fact, I used Kroger store brand graham crackers, pudding and whipped topping).  The bonus?  This dessert is incredibly simple to make.  So yes, turns out pudding is an important ingredient that has every right to stand tall in my pantry!

You are going to love this no bake eclair cake! The salted caramel flavor shines in each bite!
