Recipe Round Up: September 2019

I absolutely love to cook (and eat!), but sometimes I get in a recipe funk. I want to try new things, but everything looks too complicated or boring or just plain gross. I think we all feel like this from time to time! This past month I challenged myself to try some new recipes — and bring out some of my old favorties — and I have been so happy with the results! And B and Bryant haven’t complained either : )

Today I decided to share some of the new recipes I’ve tried this month just in case YOU and your family are in a similar funk! Hope you all enjoy!


Oven Baked

Chicken & Potatoes

This was an easy one pan meal! I used chicken thighs instead of drumsticks and it was so delicious! I served these with a simple salad on the side.

This was a big hit in our house and will definitely be on repeat all season…


Tomato Glazed

We love meatloaf around the Harpe household, and I love trying new variations. This recipe make little mini-loaves which I thought were so cute!

I served these with mashed potatoes and asparagus. So good!


Mac & Cheese

This soup literally tasted like macaroni and cheese in soup form. This was a great option for “Meatless Monday” and I loved that it had hidden veggies (butternut squash) in the cheese sauce. You seriously couldn’t taste them at all! But it felt good to know they were in there with all the cheese :)


Chicken & White Bean

This is an oldie but a goodie! I have made this recipe for years and it is my absolute favorite enchilada recipe.

I make Mexican food every Tuesday for Taco Tuesday, but it’s not always tacos! I love enchiladas, fajitas,and burritos too. These are sooo good and I think kids would even love them!


Creamy Tomato Soup
with Tortellini

This soup gets all the heart eyes from me!

It’s still 95 degrees here in Georgia, but I am protesting and still making soup. This was so creamy and just like a hug in a bowl.


Sweet ‘n Spicy
Asian Glazed

This is a good recipe if you are looking for something different! This was similar to barbecue sauce, but had just a hint of an Asian flair to it!


Balsamic Roast
Pork Tenderloins

I have used this recipe FOR YEARS.

It is a go-to when we have friends over for dinner and it’s so easy, but tastes like it cooked all day!

I usually serve this with mashed potatoes and asparagus! So good.


One-Pot Spaghetti
& Meat Sauce

I love anything that is one pot; Less dishes!

This is so simple and easy. The noodles cook right in the sauce, so no boiling and draining noodles!

I usually serve this with a basic Caesar salad and it’s a crowed pleaser!
