Freezer Staples: Easy Smokey Pulled Pork

Freezer Staples: Easy Smokey Pulled Pork

Do you love smoked meats?!?  I love the deep, rich, earthy flavor that smoking lends.  I have relatives and neighbors who have turned this science into a delicate art. Sadly, I, on the other hand, do not have any meat-smoking genes in my body.  I […]

Mexican Pulled Pork (Carnitas) – Slow Cooker or Pressure Cooker

Mexican Pulled Pork (Carnitas) – Slow Cooker or Pressure Cooker

I love a good kitchen multitasker! I follow Alton Brown’s motto in my kitchen: “No unitaskers allowed!” If an appliance or tool can’t be used for at least two different jobs, then it has no place taking up space in my kitchen. I just don’t […]

Bruschetta Chicken Bake

Bruschetta Chicken Bake

This Bruschetta Chicken Bake is an homage to the great classic Bruschetta Chicken, but in an easy-to-make and easy-to-freeze casserole!  There’s a pretty lively debate as to whether you pronounce it like “brush” or like “brusk”, but I promise you there will be no debate […]

Baked Sausage & Cheese Rigatoni

Baked Sausage & Cheese Rigatoni

My life hurts, people.  Seriously. I was up late last night finishing a job that was due and then couldn’t get to sleep.  I was tossing and turning all night. This morning I got up at the crack of “it’s-way-too-freakin’-early-to-be-awake” to drive middle school carpool. […]

Freezer Staples: Grilled Chicken

Freezer Staples: Grilled Chicken

Up until this week, we’ve been having a bit of a heat wave where I live.  Which is sort of normal, in a strange way, because we have weird weather around here.  Like 90 degrees one day and 50 the next.  Or having the sun […]

Sesame Orange Chicken

Sesame Orange Chicken

Just a quick dish for you today.  This is my Sesame Orange Chicken, or as my 5-yr-old calls it, “Orange Says Me Chicken”! It’s a fast “dump-and-freeze” meal with very little prep.  And it cooks all day in the slow cooker, so it is basically […]

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 […]

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 […]

Cranberry Catalina Chicken
