One Pan Honey Garlic Chicken

  One pan is music to my ears. Fuss-free and virtually no-clean up. An easy dinner for an easy weeknight! Big taste for my big family! I even have some “me time” while it bakes in the oven. While the honey and garlic coating glazes and caramelizes everything to perfection, I have time to pay bills, clean the microwave, and throw … [Read more…]

Pizza Burgers

Since I’ve confessed about my problem of not letting things go to waste, I have a similar confession today.

Bowtie Chicken Alfredo

  Pasta dishes are our go-to Wednesday meals. I usually gravitate towards spaghetti, because it’s quick and easy.

Everyone in my family loves chicken and combined … [Read more…]

I hope my co-workers didn’t see me drooling … [Read more…]

Ground Turkey Tacos

      I had a friend who told me she never had tacos for dinner while she was growing up.  Her mother always made elegant meals.  You know the kind of meals I’m talking about….with the white napkins, fine china and all the silverware.  While I was envious of the Mrs. Cleaver type, I look back now and realize, sometimes you … [Read more…]
