Turkey Kielbasa Skillet

I am so excited to be partnering with Jennie-O to bring you this post for a healthy  school year.  Jennie-O creates quality, affordable products and I hope you will join me in supporting the brands that help Blonde Girl Cravings operate!

It’s almost that time again. Back to school time. I would be lying if I said I was looking forward to it. I love the lazy days of summer, the lack of schedules. I work outside the home, so I am not home all day with the kids like some parents are, so I can see why some are chomping at the bit for their little bundles of joy to go back to school!

Regardless if you are a work outside the home parent or not, we can all use an easy dinner idea now and again.  Some nights we don’t have time for a from scratch meal, we need a few ingredients and dinner on the table in a flash. Jennie-O has us covered! Their Turkey Kielbasa and Smoked Sausage are two of my favorite products. They are so versatile! I have been making this recipe from Taste of Home for years. It’s a way to get veggies into those kids, they will eat anything covered in cheese!

    Food trends are so interesting to me. One person comes up with a great idea, and they next thing you know, the internet is blowing up with a million versions of that recipe.

    Skillet cookies seem to be super popular on Pinterest lately, and I can see why. They are delicious! So much more fun than individual cookies, and if not over baked stay perfectly gooey in the middle, perfect for topping with ice cream.

    This red velvet version is perfect for sharing with your sweetie on Valentine’s Day. Lots of white and semi-sweet chocolate chips, a drizzle of hot fudge and melty ice cream atop a gooey red velvet cookie? It’s enough to make anyone swoon!
