Grilled Chicken Taco

Yes, we grill even in winter. The temperatures have moderated into the 30s with no snow and wind so it is perfect to grill. Last year’s year of grilling has slowed down and I am still trying to figure where I am headed with this year. I am thinking next year will be the year…

Chicken Scallopini

Can we be honest here? I am struggling with dinners. I don’t want to make them. My standbys are even too difficult to think of making. I was chatting with a friend who told me she gave her kids bowls of cereal the other night and I thought it was perfect. We had popcorn the…

Jacques Pepin Chicken with Garlic and Parsley (Persillade)

At about 2 am last night I was watching Jacques Pepin cooking videos on Facebook. I enjoy watching him because he makes it seem so easy to make meal and that is what I love. When I saw him make this dish I knew what was for dinner! Watching him make it in less than…

Simple Chicken Pad Thai

About once every three months we order Pad Thai out. We love it. And like most dishes we order out we stop and think why don’t we make this more often because we can make it just as good or better and have it more often. Pad Thai is fairly easy to make but just…

Asian Chicken Lettuce Cups

Several times over the past few years we have ordered Asian Lettuce Cups while out to eat as an appetizer. Every time we think we should make these at home. They are fairly simple to make and we made them back in 2017 based off a recipe on Food. com (click for link to original…

Sweet and Spicy Chicken

Simple Chicken Caesar Salad with Homemade Dressing

I am a huge proponent of meal planning and not having lots of food waste. I read the other day that on average Americans throw away 219 pounds per person in a year. That is money each of us are throwing away. There are people going hungry in the world and country and a family…

Slow Cooker Southwest Chicken Soup and Google Analytics

So, I learned something new this week. I often look at other recipe/lifestyle blogs to see what they do as far layouts, pictures, etc. I know most blogs are not like mine which talk about what we are doing and eating. I notice that many blogs have tons of pictures and lengthy writing before you…

Southwest Eggrolls

We are continuing our appetizer recipes. These tasty eggrolls have a delicious slightly spicy taste. They are the thing my kids will seek out at parties and for meals if they see them. Anything wrapped in an eggroll wrapper and fried or baked some how seems more fun, doesn’t it? Verdict: These are so easy…

Simple Sour Cream Chicken

This meal started out as an accident. I wasn’t feeling well and I kept telling my family I wanted to make a Cream Cheese Chicken with Mushrooms. They thought I was saying sour cream chicken. So, they made a sour cream chicken similar to what I was thinking but not quite. Notice no mushrooms or…
