This recipe is an old favorite, and has made the rounds on Pinterest and in magazines for years. It’s the perfect go-to recipe to keep in your back pocket, because it uses just a few pantry staples and fresh chicken breasts. The chicken bakes quickly at a high temp, so it remains juicy inside while […]
I’m kinda in love with this recipe for Lemon Rosemary Chicken. It never fails to impress, and it’s so quick that it does double duty as a simple weeknight meal or a dish that’s good enough for company. But because even the best recipes can get a little tired, I like to switch it up […]
This was originally published last Mardi Gras, but I’m in a bit of a Cajun mood today–plus I am trying to kick a head cold and there’s no better cure than spicy food! I’m making an extra-hot batch of gumbo and hoping it cures what ails me! Stay tuned for another Nawlins favorite next weeks: […]
Today I’m sharing a recipe from my friend and fellow Colorado blogger, Catherine of Evolving Motherhood. I met Catherine this past fall in a cab on the way to a blog conference, and it turned out we were on the same flight and didn’t even realize it! Catherine shares my passion for clean, healthy eating […]
Isn’t soup season just the best? There is nothing easier than throwing a few ingredients into a big pot, adding some broth, and letting it simmer. Not to mention thrifty, since you can stretch small amounts of meat into many servings. Just add some fresh baked bread, rolls, cornbread or muffins and you’ve got a […]
It’s hard to believe with the lovely sunny days we’ve had lately, but pretty soon it will be what my husband and I call “Soup Weather”…that wet, foggy, cold, dark-by-5pm winter weather that just chills you to the bone. And there is nothing quite as warming to the body and soul, as a nice big […]
We’re normally year-round grillers, but with the high winds and bitter cold lately, we’ve held off for a few months. So this sunny, mild weather made me want to clear the cobwebs out of the grill and fire it up! One of my favorite things to grill is chicken drumsticks. They’re cheap, fairly quick to […]
“Milanese” refers to a style of cooking meat cutlets by pounding them thin, dredging them in a crunchy coating, and frying. It is so much faster than fried chicken, and because the cutlets are very thin they cook quickly, which means less time to absorb oil. You can use this technique with any boneless meats […]
I don’t really get into the habit of making resolutions for New Year’s, but one thing I definitely need to work on this year is meal planning. I’ve been in such a rut lately, with a lot of ad-hoc trips to the grocery store and take out meals. Which takes a toll on my wallet […]
You know those nights where you’ve pretty much run out of ideas, time, and ingredients? Yeah, that was me the other night. OK, lots of nights. Luckily I have a few absolutely fail-safe recipes that the whole family loves, and the ingredients are part of my “stash” that I always keep on hand. […]
Oh my heavens, I love me some gnoochi! I’m glad that the kids and hubby love it as well, or they would have at least one night a week where they had to fend for themselves. I make gnocchi a lot! I love the blog “How to Cook Like Your Grandmother“. They have a great […]
We’ve all been there, bare bones in the fridge, time to grocery shop, but you want to stretch it out just one more day. This is a recipe that I whipped up with what I had on hand and the family loved it! I hope you do too.
Normally our recipes are on Tuesdays now but I was digging though some files in my office and found one from my pops recipe book. Crock Pot Chicken Tortilla Soup. I’m going to make this in my slow cooker for tonight! I’ll post pictures soon.
This was soooooo good! It’s rare I find a recipe that everyone likes. Both the older boys, the hubby and I really loved this. I piled all the mushrooms on DH’s plate as the rest of us are anti-fungi, but it was delish! I served with a side of steamed peas. I also used low […]
I’m starting my health kick and wanted to share some great healthy recipes I’m finding, tweaking and creating! This one is from the Mayo Clinic and I cannot wait to make it for dinner! (Nutrition Information included below recipe)
This recipe scared me a bit with the use of salad dressing, but it is sooooo good and super easy!
Another great recipe from a member of our forums! This one comes to us from Mandi! She says she makes this all the time and it’s a hit with the family! She said you can even make 2 meals out of one!
This recipe was submitted by our own “Mommy the Maid”! Lissa has amazing recipes on her website. She also has great tips and shares her craftiness! I have seen many versions of No Peek Chicken. I have seen them in old cookbooks, new cookbooks, my grandmother’s recipe box, and my mother-in-law’s recipe box. Everyone has […]
It’s a windy and cold day here so I think I’ll try this recipe posted in our forums by one of our long time members Mommy The Maid. Such a simple recipe and one I bet my family is going to LOVE!
Another great recipe from my Dad and Grandma. My favorite thing about this one? It uses wine! Looks, sounds, smells like a 5 star restaurants meal, but it is easy to make and surprisingly kid friendly. Bon Appétit!
