Turkey Burgers

This may be the easiest recipe I’ve blogged about.  Ever.  It has three ingredients (a first for me, I’m sure!) and it really was quite delicious.  Many of you may already fix your burgers this way but this was new for me.  I’ve never used Hidden Valley Ranch dressing mix before but I needed one […]

Another Roast Chicken Recipe

Whole Foods had a huge sale on organic whole chickens last week and so I gathered the littles and off we went in search of chickens for $1.69/lb.  Unbelievable price, right?  I was hesitant to buy the ten bird limit (who has that kind of space in their freezer?) so I settled for four birds. […]

Buffalo Chicken Chili

I ran across this recipe when I was perusing a cookbook that I had borrowed from the library. (Cookbooks are my favorite books to borrow from the library!) The book was by Joy Bauer, a nutritionist frequently featured on my favorite morning program, The TODAY Show. This chili is not for the faint of heart. […]

Southern Supper

I don’t make fried chicken very often (I think the last time I made it was over two years ago!). Why? Well, it’s messy, not that healthy and did I mention messy? But sometimes you crave it alongside cheesy mashed potatoes, creamed corn, and green beans (yes, I made all those sides with it…I just […]

Fathers Day Menu

It took me a couple of days to prepare this meal since my 8 week old calls the shots around our house these days but I wanted to be sure to do something special for Fathers Day. I made tequila lime chicken, cilantro lime rice (think Chipotle), black bean and corn salsa with tortilla chips […]

Chicken Tacos

I’ve been accused of having recipes that are too difficult and not easy enough to prepare in a weeknight. Who, moi? Well, you complained and I listened. These chicken tacos have three ingredients and uses a crockpot…it doesn’t get any easier. You can always adjust the spice level by adding chili pepper or some chipotle […]

Arroz con Pollo

Every culture seems to have its own variation on a chicken and rice dish. The Spanish have paella, Indians have biriyani and there is the ever popular chicken and rice casserole with condensed soup and cheese that Americans enjoy (not a fan of that, by the way). I realize this recipe is not authentic to […]

Roast Chicken

This meal requires some preparation but well worth it. Not to mention the smell of roasting chicken is wonderful as it permeates through the kitchen.

Chipotle at Home

Our family loves Chipotle. I would have been devastated if our small town did not have one here…that along with Chick-fil-A, but I digress. Most people do not know that the flour tortillas have 290 calories, the serving of white rice has 130 calories and the chips have 570 calories! Tack on sour cream and […]
