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…

Ground Beef Ramen


My daughter loves Ramen noodle packages for lunch. They are cheap and easy for her to make in a hurry.  We always have a few packages of these in the pantry and we decided to use them in a pinch for dinner. They were perfect! They cook in no time and adding a handful of…

Peruvian Steak and Potato Stir-Fry – Loma Saltado


One last dinner from our archives. Tomorrow I will be back with daily dinner posts. Catching up from vacation is tough! Have a great day friends and enjoy Fat Tuesday! For us to eat steak for dinner is a rare occurrence. I try to keep dinners rather inexpensive.  My kids say cheap but I prefer…

Pork Stir Fry with Chow Mein Noodles


I served this dinner earlier in the week but left it to post today knowing that Thanksgiving Day would throw my schedule off a bit. Hope you enjoy! In cleaning out the freezer I found 4 boneless pork chops that needed to be used as soon as possible. The other night was one of our…

Stir Fry with Asian Brown Garlic Sauce


A few weeks ago I hurt my knee. Nothing big but it takes 6-8 weeks of resting it to heal. If it does not heal after that then we start talking surgery. It will heal! I am trying to stay off it as much as possible which is difficult. In and out of the car,…

Teriyaki Stir Fry with Chinese Noodles


I am still trying to get my family (and myself) to eat more vegetables.  I am serving larger salads with more ingredients than lettuce, tomato, spinach and onion.  I am putting them in just about every entrée I can and serving 1-2 vegetable sides per meal. The other night I decided to just stir fry…

Chicken and Cabbage Stir Fry


It’s almost Christmas and I am still trying to keep our food budget from breaking the bank this month.  I am trying to save money to use towards nice Christmas Eve and Christmas Day brunch and dinners. I still need to buy wine and meat for those meals and don’t want to dip into the…

Chicken Stir Fry


Another simple way to add lots of veggies to my dinners is with Asian inspired dishes.  I love that I can mix up the recipe I found for Chicken Stir Fry from Hoosier Family Love.com and have it ready fairly quickly.  The most strenuous part of the recipe is chopping the vegetables.  For my heartier…

Easy Beef and Broccoli


My son had a friend over for dinner who, to say the least, is a VERY picky eater.  I decided to treat him like one of my own children and just make dinner as usual.  He told me he didn’t like steak or broccoli when I served this but, he asked for seconds. This was…

Chicken, Broccoli and Pineapple Stir-Fry


I do not have a picture of tonight’s dinner.  It was one of those nights that we made dinner and dashed out of the door to go to meetings and events.   But, the dinner itself was amazing and my children loved it even though they were not too sure about the cooked pineapple in a…
