Chicken with Creamy Garlic Sauce Bowl


My family has been a bit obsessed by bowls lately. I think it is such a novel idea that they can eat dinner out of a bowl rather than on a plate that they actually are eating more vegetables and grains this way. I didn’t have brown rice mix which is what I REALLY wanted…

Sesame Chicken and Broccoli


We are stuck on chicken right now. Chicken breasts were only $1.59 a pound in bulk at our local grocery store so we have 30 lbs. of chicken in the freezer! Lots of chicken dishes will be appearing this month. We are just finishing up a No Buy January when we clean our cupboards and…

Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Chili


The lower the pantry cupboards and freezer gets the harder it is to come up with quick easy meals. I am scouring the cupboards and freezer trying to put things together that make sense. We have quite a few cans of beans, tomatoes, and corn left from the November canned goods sale at our local…

Teriyaki Chicken Bowl with Roasted Vegetables


How easy is this dish? Both of my children worked on dinner together and there was almost no arguing! Really! My son made the rice and the sauce while my daughter put the vegetables on to roast and cooked the chicken. While my daughter was serving my son put out water and toppings such as…

Hot Chicken Salad Sandwich Sliders (on Hawaiian Rolls)


More of these little sandwiches. They are so versatile you can fill them with almost anything you can think of to get tons of different meals or hearty appetizers for a party. These can also be made with cold chicken salad but with the cold weather it seemed much nicer to me to have a…

Simple Chicken Taco Bowls


I know the few days after Christmas I don’t want to cook, clean, or move. I had a few chicken breasts to cook and just was NOT in the mood to cook. Out comes the slow cooker. My daughter has even gotten in on my love of the slow cooker. Her first question when I…

Chicken Parmigiana Sliders


We are constantly looking for hearty snack foods to serve during football games and parties for the kids. I love these sliders because they are simple to make, taste great, and are filling. They can be served as a main dish during your party or right on the buffet line. I love these little sandwiches…

One Pan Cashew Chicken Plus


We had quite a few vegetables leftover from our event the night before so we decided to use some of them in a Cashew Chicken Plus meal. We love Cashew Chicken but it normally has just a bit of broccoli and a few red pepper strips in it. We decided we were adding carrots, pea…

Chicken with French Onion Soup Gravy and a Plea for Kindness


I had this post all ready to go when something happened. I thought it over for awhile and decided I needed to take a moment to respond. This is my blog. Hence I choose what is appropriate or inappropriate based on my opinions. I like healthy, productive discussions but above all I expect myself and…

Mediterranean Quinoa Bowl with Roasted Vegetables


With my mother’s health problems came a suggestion from her doctor to follow a Mediterranean diet. My mother eats very little other than white toast, pepperoni, and cheese, and drink coffee with a bit of 2% milk. Seriously. She used to be a cook but she never really ate much herself. After chemotherapy and advancing…

Country Sausage and Biscuits


First, I want to thank all of you that took the time to say you were thinking or praying for my family. My mother came home from the hospital and is now getting stronger. Her heart rate seems to be under control, she could not feel it racing up to 160 beats per minute so…
