Lemonade Chicken

Lemonade Chicken

In my family we have a pretty wide range of culinary abilities, and our “family recipes” tend to reflect that.  We have some family recipes that are winners, and some that fall a little short of the mark. It’s not always the recipe’s fault. Take […]

Easy Breakfast Pastries

Easy Breakfast Pastries

Just so you don’t get the wrong idea, we don’t eat breakfasts like this very often. I’m sure my kids wish we did! But I’m too practical to feed my kids dessert for breakfast every morning. It’s really more about self-preservation as a mom, you […]

Pizza Puff Pockets

Pizza Puff Pockets

So, I may, or may not, be on a puff pastry kick here.  I know that admitting it is half the battle, but I’m not sure I’m ready to do that yet.  So until then, you may just have to read through a few posts […]

Ham & Swiss Puff Pockets

Ham & Swiss Puff Pockets

I’m afraid I can’t lay any claim to fame on this one… I’m not even sure I can say that I’ve ever eaten the “original” commercial item that these little hot pockets are based one, so I am entirely unable to tell you whether these […]

So long, and thanks for all the strawberries…

So long, and thanks for all the strawberries…

Sometimes I just can’t help it when a Douglas Adams reference slips into a post on strawberries…it has been that kind of day… Since strawberry season is now coming to a close, I was able to get a good deal on a flat of strawberries this […]

Blueberry Cream Cheese Danish

I am notorious for hating mornings.  Hate!  Sometimes just the thought of getting out of bed is enough to exhaust me and send me back under the covers.  Every once in a while I can be lured out before 8 a.m., but that’s pretty darn […]

Easy Make-Ahead Egg Muffins

Easy Make-Ahead Egg Muffins

Mornings and I are not simpatico – we just don’t get along very well.  I don’t know what it is, but I am NOT a morning person.  On most days, I can’t even remember my own name before at least 10am. Unfortunately, someone, somewhere, thought it […]

Thou Shalt Not Waste…

Thou Shalt Not Waste…

So, if you happened to see my shopping trip from earlier this week, you’ll know I stocked up on peppers and green onions at a great price!  Some of those peppers went into the Oven-Baked Chicken Fajita freezer meals.  But I bought more than necessary for […]

Copycat Cafe Rio Chicken

Copycat Cafe Rio Chicken

I love me some Cafe Rio! Their pulled pork salads…divine!! Or a steak-stuffed burrito smothered in creamy sauce? YES PLEASE!!! Our local Cafe Rio isn’t very far away, but I don’t always have time to go pick up food. And because they are so popular, […]

Oven-Baked Chicken Fajitas

Oven-Baked Chicken Fajitas

This freezer meal recipe is near and dear to my heart…and my stomach! I’ve been eating low-carb for the last eighteen months, in an attempt to lose some extra baggage I’ve been carrying around with me.  I was doing well until I had surgery in […]
