One of my dear friends asks me a while back if I ever had bad days in the kitchen. She said that she loved my cooking and bet I never had a recipe fail. Ha, I just laughed as I recalled a few recipes fails that had happened just the week before we were having lunch together.
Looking back at those fails, some cause me to giggle but oh boy, there are some that make me CRINGE when I think back to them! I won’t subject you guys to all of my recipe bloopers right now, but just to give you an idea of how bad somewhere, just imagine my waffle maker smoking and a mess on my machine that took my husband days to get clean, okay more like a whole week!
But who’s counting…..right?
Yeah, bless him! He is such a sweetheart, he is my biggest supporter, my amazing dishwasher, and the love of my life. He graciously tackles dish detail in our home daily. And trust me here you guys, taking on a food bloggers kitchen is no easy feat.
Some weeks are filled with a bottomless sink of dishes at all times around here! Those days of working on recipes or meal prep for our busy days keeps my poor guy filling that dishwasher several times a day! But he enjoys it when I pay him with the finished plate of food or a special treat, so I try to make sure I have his favorite sweet treats on hand at all times.
Thankfully, this Cheesy Chicken Florentine was a recipe gone wrong, turned out to be something delicious and it quickly became of my family’s favorite casseroles. Back when I first made this casserole, in 2015 for the blog, it was destined for something TOTALLY different. However, when I got halfway through the cooking process I realized that I had forgotten to buy two main ingredients for the recipe I had planned! So that recipe got scratched and this Cheesy Chicken Florentine was created. Don’t you love recipe fails that turn into big wins!
This delicious casserole finds it’s spot in my Simple Supper Series because it only has basic ingredients in it and it is extra easy to put together and bake. With the chicken and the spinach, you get your protein and veggies in the same casserole and one dish meals have always won a spot on my favorites list.
I am a southern girl through and through that loves to laugh, cook, read and spend time with family. My passions outside of home schooling my son are ministering to those in need and creating art in the kitchen! Every day is an adventure in our little house and I wouldn’t trade it or the chance to share here with you for anything!
