Chicken and Stuffing Casserole - Retro and Lovin It!

What can I say?! I love good old fashioned retro comfort food sometimes. Now, it's so semi-homemade that I feel bad blogging about it but this right here is one of the ultimate comfort foods to me... Chicken and Stuffing Casserole. My best friends mom used to make this and I finally got the recipe about 2 years ago... I've since adapted it to my liking by adding cheese. I mean, come on, you can't go wrong with adding a little cheese!!

Chicken and Stuffing Casserole

adapted from Mrs. ECK (of course I'm not gonna put her name...duh!)
Ingredients
4 b/s chicken breasts, pounded to even thickness (I also cubed)
1 can Cream of Celery or Chicken Soup (I use celery)
8 oz. Sour Cream
1 package Stove-Top Chicken and Herb stuffing, cooked per instructions on the box)
(I add 1/2 shredded cheddar cheese)

Directions
- Preheat oven to 350 and spray baking dish with non-stick cooking spray
- Place chicken in bottom of prepared dish
- In a bowl mix soup and sour cream and top on chicken (add cheese if using)
- Top with prepared Stuffing mixture
- (Top with a little extra cheese if you'd like!)
- Bake in 350 degree oven for 30-40 minutes or until chicken is done and casserole is bubbling and golden!
Notes: this is also good when throwing in some frozen vegetables - particularly green beans!

Nutella Cannoli

Nutella is something that I love, but honestly don't really eat or bake with that often, always regretting that fact each time I eat something with Nutella. Well, I am vowing to change my ways - starting with these Cannolis!  They're definitely not a traditional cannoli as the combination of cream cheese and whipped cream make them more like a cheesecake filling, or even mousse, but the cannoli shell makes them easy to grab and eat.  No fork required - my kind of dessert!


Usually I prefer to make mini cannolis because sometimes full ones are just too rich for me, however any recipe could easily be adapted to a regular cannoli shell size (or mini size if the case may be).  The combination of the cream cheese, whipped cream and Nutella definitely made these a rich bite-size dessert, that I think may become one of my go-to recipes when I need to make something quick and impressive.

Key Lime Gooey Butter Cake

I'm from St. Louis.  The home of Gooey Butter Cake.  Many people think it's a Paula Deen creation, and how could you not when you see how much butter is in it, but you can't go in to a restaurant, bakery or grocery store without seeing gooey butter somewhere in St. Louis.  We love it.  What's not to love with butter, cream cheese, powdered sugar, oh my!

But, considering I've made it numerous times, I'm always up for a new variation.  Nutella?  Check!  Cookies?  Don't mind if I do!  Pumpkin?  Well of course!  While talking to my mom about what to bring to a family function, she mentioned she saw a recipe for key lime gooey butter cake.  Sold!  I've never heard of the website she sent over to me, but it looked similar to the basics of every other recipe I've used for Gooey Butter Cake so I knew I wanted to give it a try!

One thing people may not realize is that Gooey Butter Cake is very easy to make.  Just a few ingredients really!  Just mix them, ba…

Exclusive Pumping - why I did it twice, and some tips & tricks

This is a story I've been wanting to share for several years, in fact one of the reasons I decided to make the switch to more of a life blog versus a food blog. So bear with me here!

I have two children. I tried breastfeeding both of them, and was unsuccessful with both, for different reasons. One wouldn't latch. One my supply was too fast and plentiful. I tried a few things because I really really wanted to breastfeed, but it was stressing me out, so I looked in to other options, which is where I learned about exclusive pumping. 

 What is exclusive pumping (or EP)? It's when a mother expresses her milk to feed her child, rather than feeding "straight from the source". Prior to having Tyler, I knew very little about pumping, but I knew that since I planned to breastfeed and planned to work after maternity leave, I would need a pump. But that was about it. I remember the weekend before he was born sitting on my bed playing with the pump and thinking the manual was…
