Main Dish

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 […]

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 […]

Tandoori Chicken

If you go to any Indian restaurant, you will most likely find this item on the menu. The chicken is cooked in a tandoor oven which is designed to cook meats and Indian flatbreads at a very high temperature. I love this recipe because you can marinate it overnight and fix it on the grill […]

Food Memories

There is something very comforting about having a meal from your childhood. My mother would fix chicken curry at least once a week when we were growing up. I never understood how labor-intensive it was to fix this dish, especially after a full day of work! It was our favorite meal by far, especially for […]

Turkey Meatballs

I like to double the recipe and freeze half of the cooked meatballs so that I have a meal in case we have last minute company or I want to deliver a meal to someone in need. I find baking the meatballs instead of cooking over the stove top is less messy. Turkey Meatballs Recipe […]
