Chicken Bacon Ranch Pasta Recipe

Chicken, bacon, ranch, and pasta? Yes, please! This bubbling beauty is everything you want in a creamy, cheesy casserole and a dazzling dinner dish! One of my favorite restaurant sides (though it makes a great lunch too) is an obscene baked potato, so covered with bacon, and cheese, and ranch dressing you can’t even see the potato any more.   Imagine, if you will, tossing all those creamy, crispy toppings into a casserole dish with perfectly cooked penne and even MORE cheese. That is my Chicken Bacon Ranch Pasta in all its carbo-licious glory! Chicken bacon ranch recipes are plentiful on the foodie web, including a chicken bacon ranch pasta Facebook has whole pages devoted to and hundreds (thousands?) of chicken bacon ranch pasta Pinterest pins. There are lots of variations as well, and I’ve chosen the best ingredients to make a truly epic dish. My Chicken Bacon Ranch Pasta (not to be confused with the chicken bacon ranch pasta salad that’s served cold and missing several of these creamy, cheesy ingredients) has big chunks of chewy pasta, crispy crumbles of salty, smoky bacon, and tender pieces of chicken, all draped in a rich, velvety sauce spiked with the herby, garlicky goodness of our favorite salad dressing, sour cream and cream, plus three types of cheese. Just a little time at the stove top to boil the pasta and...

Why spend precious time at the counter pondering the age-old question of “chocolate or vanilla” when you can have both? “Both” (or “one of everything”) is,  after all, my dining philosophy, and it’s one of the reasons I love to make this Chocoflan. In one unassuming Bundt pan, you’ll construct the...

You’ll be setting the table for a beautiful, beefy pie molded into a perfect pie crust without having to touch a rolling pin!

Cosmic Brownies

Rich, fudgy Brownies topped with a wonderfully thick, chocoate ganache frosting. These are an amazing homemade copycat version of Little Debbies Cosmic Brownies!   Take a trip down memory lane with me: you are in elementary school, sitting in a big cafeteria. In front of you sits your lunch box, decorated with whatever cartoon character you happened to be in to at the time. As you open the box, you see a sandwich, an apple, maybe a bag of chips, and – yes! – a delicious little treat. You may see a different treat than me in that box,...
