Chicken Parm Lasagna


Okay, so this was NOT the prettiest meal I have ever made but it was good! We had some extra time where everyone was home for one evening so I wanted to have a special meal. This takes a bit of preparation but I was also able to prep some meals for later while making…

Slow Cooker Chicken Pot Pie Soup


Breathe. Breathe. This is the mantra I keep repeating to myself all day. We are trying to keep things super simple right now. It seems that every year the schools, lessons, and classes try to pack more and more into May and the first week in June. Every class seems to have a recital or…

Creamy Firecracker Chicken Pasta (revisited)


I am revisiting a few of our favorite dishes on the weekends to see if the recipes still hold up. I first posted this recipe for Creamy Firecracker Chicken Pasta in April 2016 (click for link to original post). This dish is a great week day meal as it takes about 25-30 minutes to have…

Chicken Quinoa Bowl with Roasted Italian Red Pepper Sauce


So even though I am trying to keep meals simple I am still trying to get vegetables and good foods into my family. The great part is that you can make the sauce for this bowl a day or so ahead of time when you have free time AND it will taste even better because…

Barbecue Chicken and Potato Skillet Dinner


I am still trying super simple dinners most nights of the week right now. I keep telling myself things will slow down and I know things are going to come to an abrupt stop very soon but until then I will enjoy the ride of senior year with my daughter and finishing freshman year with…

Chicken, Green Bean, and Stuffing Casserole


When we are stuck at home with a foot of snow falling outside and more expected over the next few days I want comfort food. Warm, stick to your ribs, casseroles. This was the first one that came to mind as I was looking through the pantry for ingredients. I usually make Chicken, Green Bean,…

Chicken with Creamy Garlic Sauce Bowl


My family has been a bit obsessed by bowls lately. I think it is such a novel idea that they can eat dinner out of a bowl rather than on a plate that they actually are eating more vegetables and grains this way. I didn’t have brown rice mix which is what I REALLY wanted…

Sesame Chicken and Broccoli


We are stuck on chicken right now. Chicken breasts were only $1.59 a pound in bulk at our local grocery store so we have 30 lbs. of chicken in the freezer! Lots of chicken dishes will be appearing this month. We are just finishing up a No Buy January when we clean our cupboards and…

Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Chili


The lower the pantry cupboards and freezer gets the harder it is to come up with quick easy meals. I am scouring the cupboards and freezer trying to put things together that make sense. We have quite a few cans of beans, tomatoes, and corn left from the November canned goods sale at our local…

Teriyaki Chicken Bowl with Roasted Vegetables


How easy is this dish? Both of my children worked on dinner together and there was almost no arguing! Really! My son made the rice and the sauce while my daughter put the vegetables on to roast and cooked the chicken. While my daughter was serving my son put out water and toppings such as…

Hot Chicken Salad Sandwich Sliders (on Hawaiian Rolls)


More of these little sandwiches. They are so versatile you can fill them with almost anything you can think of to get tons of different meals or hearty appetizers for a party. These can also be made with cold chicken salad but with the cold weather it seemed much nicer to me to have a…

Teriyaki Slow Cooker Pork Loin


The picture above says Slow Cooker Chicken Teriyaki, it is not. It is a pork loin. I was thinking about how I could also use this on chicken lost my mind and wrote chicken on the picture. In the meantime I was talking and accidentally erased the original picture so I only have this copy…
