Lately, I have been on the look out for healthy meals for my family that are DIFFERENT from some combination of chicken and vegetables. We’ve done chicken salads, chicken roll ups, chicken casseroles, but at the end of the day, its still chicken and vegetables. Not that there is anything wrong with that, it just… Read More


Cilantro Lime Rice

Here is the Cilantro Lime Rice I promised you. I served this up with the Sweet Pork Barbacoa and it was a great compliment. There are so many directions you can take this combination. A burritto, a salad bowl, or just the pork over rice. The interesting thing about this recipe is that it calls… Read More


Crispy Southwest Chicken Wraps

I am always on the lookout for fast, fresh-tasting food, and found this recipe from Mel’s Kitchen Cafe. This recipe is completely responsible for my picky 4-year old choosing to eat tortillas (finally!!) for the first time. The crispy outside and delicious filling were so good that she was willing to set aside her dislike of… Read More


Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole

If you love Chicken Cordon Bleu and tend to like richer flavors, you will love this recipe! For a couple of years I have had the vision of a chicken cordon bleu casserole bouncing around my head, but never bothered making it. I finally decided I had enough of buying frozen cordon bleu (yes, I… Read More


Steak & Amazing BBQ Sauce

If you would have been walking through my neighborhood tonight, you would have been drooling. My husband made the most amazing steaks with even more amazing barbeque sauce. I had never had barbeque sauce like this before. I kept snitching it by the spoonful before the steaks we’re ready to be smothered in it. Sorry… Read More


Macaroni and Cheese is hands down my favorite food. I like to joke that anything a 5 year-old would eat, I prefer as well since I’m quite a picky eater. This is a recipe my mom made for us growing up and just tastes like heaven to me. It is simple, but such a comfort… Read More


One of the best things about the summer is grilling. I do not enjoy using my oven much during the summer because it is just too hot. When a friend made this chicken for my husband and I, I knew I had to have the recipe and add it to my summer repertoire. Here are… Read More


This recipe is perfect to teach kids who are heading off to college, or for a quick and easy dinner. Actually, I had a roommate who made this (or something similar) to share with me in college. It is all “pantry foods”, but still has a fresh taste to it. Two disclaimers: 1) This is… Read More


Let me first say that I do not really like vegetables. I never have. I am trying to be a good, responsible human and eat more of them, especially now that I have a 2 year-old that I want to eat them. I went to my book club last month and the hostess made this… Read More


I wanted to do a quick post today about a SUPER easy way to shred chicken…..or any other meat for that matter. I used to avoid recipes that called for shredded anything because I really can’t stand shredding meat. It is painful to me. Or I would have my husband do it. I found this… Read More
