Chicken Macaroni and Cheese Helper is a super easy to make dinner option sure to please even the most pickiest eaters. This recipe includes an easy gluten free option and is done in 25 minutes.

I needed something quick and easy to make the other night and the kids were in the mood for macaroni and cheese.

We already had things with hamburger in it two nights in a row so I decided to change up my One Skillet Cheeseburger Helper with chicken breast and a few tweaks, let me tell you it was devoured in 2.2 seconds.

Always a sign of a good thing! 


If you have a gluten free household this dish is easily made gluten free using gluten free brown rice noodles. I've made different variations of this dish using traditional pasta and gluten free brown rice noodles and no one can tell the difference.

I love how easy and simple this is to make, some nights the less fuss the better.


It takes only a few more minutes then the boxed stuff and is 10 times tastier plus it's a one skillet dish meaning very few dishes!

White Bean Salami Pasta Salad

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Safeway. All opinions are 100% mine.

A favorite summertime Pasta Salad recipe we love in our house is White Bean Salami Pasta Salad. It's one of a dozen go-to variations we love to make.

It's delicious served cold on a hot day for lunch, dinner or a hearty side. It's better made the day before if time allows because the flavor only improves after being refrigerated. White Bean Salami Pasta Salad is one of those dishes the whole family calls dibs on the leftovers.

White Bean Salami Pasta Salad is loaded with Cannellini Beans, Primo Tagilio® Italian Dry Sliced Salami, Rotini Pasta, Primo Tagilio® Fresh Mozzarella Cheese Ball, Bell Pepper, Cucumber, Grape Tomatoes, Diced Artichoke Hearts, Red Onion, Chopped Spinach, Basil, and drizzled with a fresh herb red wine vinaigrette. I then topped with with Primo Tagilio® Shaved Parmesan Cheese for one more layer of flavor.

We frequently make it for summer picnics at the lake, or to take with us to potlucks, and barbecues. It's one of those dishes that always goes fast, and that everyone loves.

I purchased all the ingredients for this White Bean Salami Pasta Salad from my local Safeway. I used the Drive Up & Go™ Safeway Delivery and Pickup App on my phone to save time so Colt just had to pick up the order I placed on his way home from work.

Whiskey Raspberry Lime Floats

Whiskey Raspberry Lime FloatsI've been dreaming of Whiskey Raspberry Lime Floats since Colt made them last weekend. It's the perfect after dinner adult treat. I absolutely love this cocktail, and think it's a great for summertime or entertaining. It's simple to make, and so flavorful. Whiskey, 7up, and lime are combined, then a float of Raspberry Sorbet on the top for an extra special adult treat.I know the sorbet looks hard in the photos but it melts pretty quickly into the cocktail for a delicious concoction.Whisky Raspberry Lime Floats are a delicious summertime adult treat for a hot day! Cheers!
