My husband and I love a good flatbread - what's better than buttery naan topped with your favorite ingredients? Nothing! My husband and I have been experimenting with lots of topping combinations, but we kept coming back to this BBQ version. The best part? It's a great way to enjoy summery barbeque flavors without having to bear the cold to man the grill 😉

Slow Cooker Broccoli Cheddar Mac & Cheese
If you've ever had Panera's Broccoli Cheddar Soup or Mac and Cheese, you were probably just as excited as I was when they came out with Broccoli Cheddar Mac & Cheese - I don't think there has ever been a more perfect combination in the history comfort foods. After trying Panera's new combination, I decided to try my hand at making my own version. I won't call it a copy-cat, because it's not the same as Panera's version, but it is definitely just as tasty!
“Fried” Ravioli with Basil Tomato Dipping Sauce
I've mentioned before that there is nothing better than grilled cheese & soup - it's my go-to lazy day comfort food for SURE! I also love pasta, and was cooking some easy cheese ravioli for dinner while thinking of ways to use up my large fresh basil supply when this idea was born: why not combine two of my favorite things to create an easy snack/appetizer. These crispy ravioli with basil tomato dipping sauce are the perfect finger food version of your favorite childhood meal, they are SO easy and SO good! They're the perfect appetizer, football snack, or even an easy dinner that sure to please kids and adults alike! Give this fun grilled cheese & tomato soup twist a try, I promise you'll love it!
Beef Shakshuka with Feta & Naan
Shakshuka is a Mediterranean dish consisting of eggs poached in a herby tomato sauce. I originally discovered a "beefed up" version of this dish through a meal delivery service, but my husband and I loved it so much, I kept tweaking it until we created this dish that has become a staple in our household. It's comforting, filling, but the herbs and spices make it feel fresh. We tend to make this more often in the colder months, but it's a great meal to serve year round for dinner, lunch or even breakfast!
Instant Pot Buffalo Chicken Chili
As the weather gets cooler, I tend to make lots of chili, soup and stew - I just love comfort foods in the fall and winter, even if my waistline does not! This chili mixes it up by incorporating flavors you'd normally find with wings, with less mess, and it comes together with very little prep. This is a great dish to make for a quick and easy weeknight meal, Sunday football, meal prep, or as an easy dish to serve to a crowd. I've also included slow cooker directions in the recipe notes.
