Slow Cooker Garlic Parmesan Chicken and Potatoes


(My family takes the pictures of dinner on Tuesday and Thursday when I am away. Not quite like when I take the pictures but it gives you an idea of the dish.) School is over. Lessons for cello are off for the next few weeks. We only have dance left until the end of the…

Chicken Carnitas


Looking for a dish that can cook while you are on the beach this summer? This is a simple dish to make using your slow cooker. Prepare your toppings before you leave and store them in little bowls in your refrigerator so that when you come home all you need to do is a few…

Garlic Basil Chicken


I was reading an article in the Boston Globe from 2012 about a study about Life at Home in the 21st century (click for link to article). It was interesting because I wonder in the 5 years since this article was published have things changed? Have we decluttered as we move toward a more minimalistic…

White Barbecue Chicken Sandwich


All this traveling has really thrown me off my menu planning. I had to sit down last night with my calendar and a grocery list. We went through the pantry in the basement to see where we were with our groceries. We have been trying to eat as much as possible out of the pantry…

Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup


So, dinner the other night was at 9:30 pm. Yes, really. The picture above isn’t pretty but this was my bowl of soup at 9:30 pm! My son had play rehearsal until 5:30 pm and needed to be at the high school for his orchestra concert at 6:00 pm. He ate a snack while I…

Parmesan Chicken Bites over Garlic Egg Noodles


As my kids get older there are some definite benefits. We never went to movies when the kids were little, unless they were “Sensory Friendly” movies that certain theaters showed for kids that need the lights up a little, the sound turned down a little and to be in a space where no one cared…

Cheesy Chicken Frito Burrito


Happy Halloween!!! I’m back! I took a four-day break while we were at a double Feis (Irish dance competition) this weekend.  I pretty much post in real-time so I normally would have tried to get a post or two together on the road but I decided to just be with my family and take a…

Creamy Swiss Chicken


So I have finally decided to  start doing something just for me. I joined a handbell choir. I have never played handbells before. It has been interesting. I realized I was being very hard on myself because I had a music degree I should be able to go in and pick this up like nothing….

Grilled Chicken with Garlic Cheese Sauce


Well, our air conditioner is officially dead. We have some people coming towards the end of this week to give us quotes on a new one. We are all still sleeping in one room despite it being a bit cooler during the days. Unfortunately there are no trees around our house for natural cooling. We…

Creamy Chicken Noodle Casserole (No Canned Soup Recipe)


Last night was definitely a comfort food night. Even though summer is just a few weeks away the temperatures have dropped just a bit and there was a slight breeze. It was still nice out but it almost had a fall feel to the day. This was the first night we were all home together…

Slow Cooker Chicken Fajitas


It was a crazy and fun weekend. We were in Milwaukee for three days for a Mommy/Daughter Feis, Irish dance competition, trip. No, I don’t dance, I finance, as they say. She did really well. It was the first time in a long time she could come off stage and say, “I did the best…
