Buffalo Chicken Dip


Some nights we have an appetizer dinner. Little bites can be fun and a super simple dinner if you make things “semi-homemade.” This dip can be made with slow cooker chicken, or leftover chicken, or a shredded rotisserie chicken from the grocery store on a busy day. No matter the chicken you use it is…

Buffalo Chicken Macaroni and Cheese


This weekend was super busy so it is time to pull out an old favorite recipe. It’s not pretty but it is oh so good! This recipe was AMAZING!  I knew what I wanted to make but when I saw the recipe for Buffalo-Chicken Macaroni and Cheese on Foodnetwork.com my menu changed quickly. I followed…

Blue Cheese Waffle Fries


I wish this was a better picture but french fries are hard to get into an appetizing picture. I don’t know why we never thought of making Blue Cheese Waffle Fries before. The kids love blue cheese and waffle fries why wouldn’t we put them together. For Christmas Eve we make an appetizer buffet for…

Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Sliders


My family is big on flavor. They like spicy, bold, and even vinegary flavors. It doesn’t matter as long as it has lots of great flavors going on. This meal fit the bill perfectly. As we were shopping for rolls and crumbly blue cheese my daughter picked up two packages of blue cheese. I told her…

Buffalo Beef Stuffed Garlic Bread


My blog is about the game I play with my family. Making a different dinner every week night without repeating the exact same dish. I can use similar recipes with different meats or ingredients but there has to be at least one new dish at each meal. It is not just about the food. It…

Make Your Own Subs – What We Have When We Have No Time for Dinner


My kids say I am cheap. I prefer frugal. Cheap implies scrimping beyond comfort levels that I will not cross. I have read stories of people separating 2 ply toilet paper into two rolls to save money or stuffing their pockets with ketchup, soy packets, salt and pepper when they visit restaurants. No, I will…

Buffalo Shrimp Tostadas


When I first told my kids about this dish I got “the Face.” You know the scrunchy face your kids make when they think something sounds weird or yucky. They both said, “Buffalo sauce on shrimp? That will be disgusting.” They love Buffalo wings and Buffalo sauce and I guaranteed them they would like it,…

Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken with Loaded Tater Tots


Happy Valentine’s Day! From the frying pan into the fire.  We are always busy but on the day after we got home from vacation my daughter had a choir concert.  I needed to have dinner ready to go and be able to serve it to three different people at three different times. We usually don’t…

Baked Buffalo Chicken Wings


Well, this is one more in our junk food bonanza week.  I guess it is just slightly a step up from deep-fried chicken wings. I know this is the time of year everyone starts their resolutions to only eat salads for dinner or eat 7 servings of fruit and vegetables per day but I have…
