Here at Simple Seasonal, Dan and I are super excited to announce that I’m now a contributing writer for the lifestyle blog Simple As That. If you’re someone who embraces simplicity and beauty in everyday life, you’re going to love Simple as That. Be sure to check it out!
To get things started with Simple As That, I thought it would be important to make a good first impression. Have you ever made a bad first impression? It’s the worst! I feel like most of my high school experience was based on a bad first impression. My punishment was a couple of years of sitting with the nerds at the front of the class with feigned interest about all things related to high school. Okay, maybe I was a nerd and I belonged there, but I like to think I had a chance at being considered cool. If only I had just made a better first impression… In college it was a lot cooler to be smart. Now those were the days!
When it comes to food blogging, I figure there are various ways to make a good first impression. I could cook something incredibly challenging and wow everyone with my culinary prowess, but that’s not really my style. I’m all about keeping it nice and simple in the kitchen, after all. So I figured I had three choices: drizzly chocolate, dippy and sticky sauce, or stretchy cheese. I decided to go for the stretchy cheese in this Rustic Italian One-Pot Chicken and Rice. It’s full of whole grain goodness, veggies, and chicken, along with everyone’s favorite Italian flavors and stretchy cheese. Not to mention, clean-up is a breeze! Be sure to head over to Simple As That to read the full article and get this yummy recipe for cooking up in your own cozy kitchen!

LOVE this meal! The chicken, the skillet, the rustic nature – all three of these essential form a trifect in my book and this is exactly the type of dish I love to serve at our little lake cottage in the middle of Nowhere, Wisconsin. Thanks so much for sharing, we look forward to putting this on our menu very soon.
Lol! I’m glad that this made the trifecta. You little lake cottage sounds delightful and perfect! *feeling jealous in my Philadelphia suburban townhome*
Congratulations! And that stretchy cheese impresses me every time!

I love one pot dishes like this, it looks amazing, especially with all that wonderful melted cheese, yum!
Thanks Joy! I’m obsessed with on-pot dishes lately. I guess I’m always looking for a way to have my hands in soapy water less by doing less dishes during the cold, winter months!
Oh wow this looks so good! So cheesy 🙂
