Cashew Chicken II


I love simple and quick meals. Quick to me is anything under 30 minutes. This recipe clocked in at about 35 ish so for me that was good. If I had left out the broccoli it would have been about 25 minutes.  What saves time is having meat and vegetables prepped early. When I freeze…

Parmesan Simple Chicken


Finishing the last day of cleaning out our freezer. We have a turkey and a few bits and pieces that we are pulling to our upstairs freezer to use in the next week or they need to go. I love having a clean freezer to start again. We had a package of chicken left to…

Chicken Caesar Salad Pizza


Not a great picture but this was a yummy pizza. This pizza was created because we had chicken to use up and I am always trying to find new ways to make the dishes we love in new ways. One of my favorite things is to take a meal we love and turn it into…

Copy-Cat KFC Bowls


We were having a bad day and I was going to take my son over to KFC to pick up lunch. The kids had a half day for mid-terms and wanted a hearty lunch. I decided instead to stop at the grocery store to pick up the ingredients for the bowls that he likes so…

Southwest Slow Cooker Chicken Stew


Temperatures for Wednesday are predicted to be -10 to -15 without windchill and about -40 with windchill warming soup and bread sound really good to me. This is one of our favorite soups. You can add bits and pieces of whatever you have left in your vegetable drawer – diced pepper, sliced carrots, or celery….

Chicken and Biscuits


Still waiting for this cold snap to end? We are. Hopefully by the end of February. Well, we live in the Midwest it is the way it supposed to be in the winter. I just miss taking our vacation to somewhere warm during winter break because the school schedule no longer has a winter break….

Middle Eastern Chicken Soup


We had a bit of an ice storm yesterday afternoon. I went to my car about 2 pm and it was enclosed in a nice coating of ice and the sidewalks and roads were smooth ice.  So, I cancelled both of my meetings and we all had a nice night in. I’m so glad my…

Baked Sweet and Sour Chicken


Some nights dinner just seems to work and other nights it seems a chore. This was one of those nights that it actually came together quite nicely! It all worked out that the chicken I had out for dinner was still slightly frozen so that we could cube it easily. I hate cutting raw chicken…

Buffalo Chicken Tacos with Blue Cheese


We have been having several “health” scares in my family lately. My mother’s eyes have suddenly swollen and dilated. She is having an MRI tomorrow to see what is going on. My partner is having some tests next week. We are keeping our fingers crossed and it will probably be fine but it makes it…

Simple Slow Cooker Chicken Stroganoff


We are menu planning for a week or so at a time right now which works for me. I had been doing a month at a time for years but as things change in our life I need to adjust and let it go. My daughter was free so I asked her to put this…

Ranch Chicken Roll-Ups and Finding a New Way to Celebrate


I wrote this piece before we left for Christmas but didn’t even have the heart to post it. Things are getting better. But, this is where we were…. This is our Christmas tree. Notice anything unusual about it? It is prelit and has a rope of ribbon on it. That is all. I am not…

Simple Weekday Chicken Parmigiana


I feel officially old. While picking up my son from high school the last few days I have watched SEVERAL girls try to walk out of school wearing the wedge sneakers above. Now, They are cute but we have had icing over the last several days so everything around town is smooth ice. We live…
