Has anyone else noticed that bloggers you have followed suddenly gone? My following list has dropped some people off and I just noticed that some of you I have followed for years are missing. If you see I am not following you anymore let me know! I will be happy to follow you again. Sorry,…

Tuscan Chicken (Marry Me Chicken)


My son made this dish on his own with my just giving him a few guidelines. He learned a lot from this dish. Like to have your spices ready to go before you turn the pan on so the olive oil doesn’t burn. Yes, he started over again. But, in the end he did a…

Orzo, Goat Cheese, and Craisin Salad


Back to school time is tough not only for me but for my kids. They both start feeling a bit anxious before school starts. Thought they have been through this many times now it always surprises us when they start to get moody and acting out a bit two – four weeks before school starts….

Grilled Chicken Cordon Bleu


We have found that grilling for us really cuts down on the amount of time it takes to get dinner on the table. I try to have the meat pounded down and marinating (if necessary) early in the morning so that by the time we are all home for dinner it is putting together a…

Cheesy Chicken Enchiladas Verde


This is a great use for leftover chicken. I would recommend doubling the chicken when you are cooking it one night to have leftovers for this meal. I love to cook meat once and have 2 meals!  Also, several of the recipes I have in my stash contain canned cream of … soup. I try…

Cheesy Chicken and Rice


As we were coming to the end of the month I was digging into the bottom of the freezer (remember we do one big grocery shop a month) and we found more chicken breasts. I was feeling in the mood for comfort food (it is getting chilly at night again and I can see one…

Grilled Lemon Chicken


Still giving our grill a workout this summer. My kids both LOVE lemon chicken and we have had lots of chicken as it has been on sale at least once a month so we are buying 20-25 pounds at a time. We had a small bunch of asparagus so we grilled that too with butter,…

BBQ Chicken on Texas Toast


This was one of the days that it was almost 110 outside with the heat index. Even grilling seemed difficult because you had to stand outside in the heat. Dinner was made in our slow cooker. It could cook all day and barely raised the heat in the kitchen. Add to that homemade bread in…

Honey Garlic Chicken Stir Fry


It seems March Madness for us has to do with our schedules. Between dance for St. Patrick’s Day (the life of an Irish dance mom), a play, festival for Orchestra, work (I am still doing taxes), and just general life we are super busy. Still looking to keep dinners simple and yet still tasty. I…

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 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….
