Skillet Chicken and Garlic Parmesan Rice


Day 9 – Things are still going okay here. We have each had our time of uncertainty and a bit of a melt down about how things are now but thankfully we have each had others around us to lift us up and not let us sink into despair. I hear about so many people…

Chicken and Cheddar Garlic Biscuits


Yes, that is our Christmas tree. It is now a Valentine’s Day tree. Notice the red and white ornaments. Our cat loves sleeping under the tree and we just couldn’t take it away from her. She has her own little tunnel in underneath it and she has move the tree skirt to her liking. She…

Black Pepper Chicken


This is one Chinese dish that I order quite often when we go out to eat. When most people think of Pepper Chicken they think where are the peppers. There are none in this dish. It is celery and onions. My kids were quite confused until I started saying Black Pepper Chicken. Then it made…

Easy Chicken Parmesan


Trying to get back into real life after being away for a week is tough. There are so many emails, phone calls, and things to catch up on for the schools, and kids. I love the peaceful rejuvenated feeling I have when I am away. Now I need to work on keeping it while I…

Slow Cooker Creamy Chicken and Biscuits


This dish wasn’t quite what I meant it to be in the beginning. I put the chicken in the slow cooker and planned on being home about 8 pm from Lansing to make simple Baking Powder Biscuits to go with the meal. When at 9:30 pm we were still searching for book covers for the…

Easy Honey Garlic Chicken


I am finally catching up with life. After the little glitch at the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) on Tuesday (tax day in the US) I had a few returns that needed some attention because they wouldn’t transmit electronically. Got them all straightened out in some form and taken care of. So the additional day of…

Spiedie Chicken


In the Binghamton area of New York Spiedie Chicken is a huge thing. Every festival, family picnic, and barbecue seem to have some form of this on the menu. I love the fresh taste of the chicken. The chicken is usually served on white bread or a hot dog roll, plain. Now, I am a…

Mediterranean Quinoa Bowl with Roasted Vegetables


With my mother’s health problems came a suggestion from her doctor to follow a Mediterranean diet. My mother eats very little other than white toast, pepperoni, and cheese, and drink coffee with a bit of 2% milk. Seriously. She used to be a cook but she never really ate much herself. After chemotherapy and advancing…

Chicken Divan II


One of the new items for my blog this year is going back and re-visiting some of my earlier recipes and making them again to see how the recipes stand up now and if I would change anything about them today. My first Chicken Divan post on July 12, 2014, (click for link to original…

Slow Cooker Chicken Cordon Bleu (with NO Canned Soup)


I first made Slow Cooker Chicken Cordon Bleu in 2012. The Crockpot Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole (click for link to original recipe) was one of my early posts and I was just starting to try to cook without canned soups. My early attempts were good but my later attempts have greatly improved. There is absolutely…

Old Fashioned Butter Chicken


It was a crazy, busy weekend this week so there were no weekend posts like usual. I have only missed posting 6 days in the last 5 weeks. There was a Feis at the Michigan Irish Festival this weekend and on Sunday we went to see the National Touring Company of Wicked. Why have I…
