Honey Soy Baked Chicken


I love boneless, skinless chicken thighs! They are so full of flavor and tend not to dry out as quickly as chicken breasts can. They are a bit more expensive to buy this way but sometimes ease of cooking is worth the cost. But, you can substitute chicken breast or chicken thighs with bones in…

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…

Simple Weekday Chicken Parmigiana


I feel officially old. While picking up my son from high school the last few days I have watched SEVERAL girls try to walk out of school wearing the wedge sneakers above. Now, They are cute but we have had icing over the last several days so everything around town is smooth ice. We live…

Baked Ziti


Still trying to keep up with the simple, easy dinners. Believe me it is really hard right now. I thought as the children got older it would get easier. I think I am busier now than when they were little. At least I had more control over their schedules! We are working VERY hard this…

Simple Chicken Enchilada Verde


Every day is getting 3 to 4 minutes shorter. Night is coming earlier and earlier. You can feel it and smell it in the air. Fall is on its way in. In many ways I don’t want to admit it but as we sit on the bluff and look to the lake at 8:50 we…

Korean Beef Tacos with Pickled Onions and Cucumbers


If you have read my blog over the past year or two you may have noticed my family really likes combinations of Asian spices with touches of something different. Still trying to keep those food costs down one of our favorite meats to go to is ground beef. But, we can only eat so much…

Grilled Reuben


One of the ways we have been battling with what to have for dinner when our life is so busy is to cook a big cut of meat such as a corned beef, ham, even a turkey and then slicing them up for different meals. This cuts down on the time needed to cook a…

Chicken Cordon Bleu Stromboli


So many people are looking for leftover ham recipes. I have so many but one of our favorite is the Chicken Cordon Bleu Stromboli. This is great for using up 2 leftovers. After Easter dinner we don’t want ham again right away so my daughter made chicken tenders for her and her friend. I had…

Making Simple Dinners Look Amazing!


Sometimes you simply want an easy meal. When company is coming in an hour and you still need to pick up or your kids bring home an extra friend or two from school and they ask to stay for dinner and you haven’t even thought about dinner yet? Having that box of pasta, jarred sauce,…

Christmas Dinner


My favorite turkey sandwich on toasted white bread. We actually don’t cook on Christmas Day.  Everything is made on Christmas Eve and we snack through both days on all the food. There is a 20 lb. turkey with stuffing, Pigs in the Blanket (our family German version of Cabbage Rolls), Apple Kuchen, Christmas cookies, and…

Cheesy Bacon Stuffed Chicken Breasts


I am all about easy dinners. This dish was perfect for us. I usually make enough food to have at least two servings of leftovers for lunch the next day. Not all of us will eat leftovers but there are a few dishes we end up fighting over who gets the leftovers this dish was…
