Sticky Barbecue Lime Chicken Tenders


I have seen this recipe all over Facebook and Pinterest. Of course that means I need to try it to see what all the hype is about. Of course I don’t follow the recipe exactly (like I expect you to change it too!). My family likes lots of flavor but not heavy citrus, especially lime,…

Monterey Chicken Skillet Bites


I am always looking for simple dinner ideas. Now, I am a bit picky about my simple dinners. I prefer they not have canned soups, packaged spice mixes and can be made with minimal pans and dishes. I do make exceptions for each of these on occasion but for the most part I try stick…

Barbecue Chicken Pasta Skillet


Well, Spring break is finally over. It was definitely a weird week weather wise. All week we had snow on and off and temperatures hovering in the 30s. Saturday on a trip to Grand Rapids we actually drove through a white-out. April 9th and I am driving in a white-out. Thankfully, we made it there…

Cowboy Meatloaf with Cheesy Mashed Potato Casserole


I am contemplating buying my first glue gun. I have never been really big into crafts. Oh, I have all the different things I bought to try new crafty projects such as knitting, scrap booking and jewelry making. But, I never actually purchased a glue gun. To me that was for the people who wore…

Grilled Cheese with Pulled Pork


I have one child that is all about creativity, dance and emotion. I have a child who is a concrete thinker driven by facts, logic and little emotion. I am trying to help each child find the balance to their strengths. It is difficult at times. We don’t like to do things that are difficult…

Barbecue Chicken Pizza with Caramelized Onions


We are all about the easy around our house. I knew there were going to be a few nights of quick meals so I bought several pizza crusts to have on hand. I can make pizza crusts but they never seem to turn out like the pizzeria type that I want. I have tried everything…

Barbecue Bacon Cheeseburger Handpies


I bought a bunch of canned rolls and biscuits on sale a few weeks ago. I knew time would be tight over the next few weeks and the sale was really great so I thought why not try to incorporate them into some meals. It would save some time and sanity to have easy go…

Cheesy Barbecue Chicken and Biscuit Casserole


I am always looking for easy, tasty ways to get dinner on the table as quickly as possible. I try not to use prepared items in my cooking for the most part. I have found simple exchanges for canned soups, canned biscuits and bottled sauces. But, sometimes a mom has to do what a mom…

Boneless Barbecue Pork Ribs


I am all about saving money on my food bills.  Pork and chicken tend to be the cheaper cuts of meat right now in our area.  So, we eat lots of pork and chicken.  I try to cook it a bit differently each time so my family does not realize they are eating the same…

Barbecue Chicken French Bread Pizza


I love making French Bread Pizzas because they are so simple to make and can be on the table in 30-45 minutes.  If you have leftover meat, some cheese, a sauce and a few spices you can make a number of different French Bread Pizzas. I chose to make a Barbecue Chicken French Bread Pizza….

Slow Cooker Sweet and Spicy Pork


Back to the slow cooker!  I love recipes that I can just dump some ingredients in my slow cooker in the morning and at dinner time have dinner 90% done before I even walk in the door. A few people have asked about my slow cooker.  I use a 6 qt.  Set it & Forget…

Barbecue Cowboy Casserole


After a doctor appointment we needed to decide if my daughter was going to dance class last night.  She had just been seen by our pediatrician who diagnosed her with problems in her Flexor from overuse.  The pediatrician recommended physical therapy and to cut back a bit on dance class.  The doctor told her that…
