I am always looking for ways to make dinner easy, but still delicious and healthy. This week I had the chance to sample Tyson Foods new marinated chicken breasts. These products will be available in Walmart starting next week, but I was sent some packages early for my family and I to try out! I […]
I love to use fruit in main dishes, because it is any easy way to make a dish more exciting and more kid friendly, since most kids love fruit, like in this Banana-Pineapple Chutney to serve over pork chops.
Lent is coming early this year, so it is time to start thinking about fish dishes. Growing up my mom always served tuna fish sandwiches on Fridays in Lent, which was not a very interesting meal. We eat try to eat seafood regularly year round, since it is healthy, and salmon is always popular. This […]
One of my New Year’s resolutions is to eat better. I am sure I am not alone, that is probably one of the most common resolutions around. One of the biggest challenges for me is to find ways to make healthy meals that my kids will actually eat. I could make something very healthy like […]
The idea behind World Foods sauces is to provide a range of easy to use, economical sauces to make putting together a fantastic taste dinner quick and easy. My family loves Asian foods, but I don’t always have the Asian spices on hand to create authentic dishes. Sure, I could make a special stop at […]
When I was growing up one of my favorite meals that my mom made was baked chicken, cooked on top of rice mixed with cream of mushroom soup.Â But I donâ€™t like to cook with cream soups, because they have so much fat and sodium.Â So this is a healthier version of that meal, using […]
This is a nice chicken stew type recipe using tomatillos.Â Around here we only see tomatillos in the stores for a few weeks, so it is nice to make something using them when they are available.Â I got this recipe from my mom, although she usually makes it with pork and I like it with […]
This is a quick pasta recipe with a little bit different taste. The tomatoes are roasted instead of sauted, which gives the dish a deeper flavor. I also like this recipe because it is easy to keep the sausage separate until the last minute, so I can keep it vegetarian for my daughter.
A few days ago I posted a recipe for Buitonis Chicken Marsala Ravioli, and today I have another Buitoni pasta recipe, this time using Roasted Butternut Squash Agnolotti. This recipe is even easier than the first one! When using these kinds of gourmet filled pasta I don’t like to make a sauce that is too […]
Recently Buitoni sent me some of their new filled pasta to try out! They make all kinds of yummy refrigerated pasta that is available in many grocery stores. I like that their pasta is more exotic than standard boring pasta. Cheese ravioli is good, but there is nothing special aboutÂ a dinner of cheese ravioli […]
Corn is one of the most delicious vegetables around! I tried to grow it in my garden last year, but the local groundhogs and rabbits ate my plants, so I didn’t end up with homegrown corn. Luckily there are lots of other places I can get fresh sweet corn. It used to be that we […]
My family always enjoys grilling food outside this time of year. We have a long winter around here, so once the snow is gone and we can break out the grill we can hardly wait! Kebobs are one of my favorite things to grill because they have both meat and vegetables, so it is an […]
Last week I got a kohlrabi and the grocery store, and had to figure out a recipe to use it in. It is used frequently in Indian cooking, so I decided to use it in a curry. I basically made a standard potato curry and added the kohlrabi, and it turned out pretty well. The […]
Beef Stew with Shiitake Mushrooms and Baby Vegetables,
I enjoy cooking, my children’s schedule this year is making it harder for me to find the time to make complicated meals. Between dance and basketball it seems like there is usually something going on at dinner time that requires me to drive someone somewhere. So quick simple meals are a necessity for me right […]
I love chili, especially this time of year. Chili is the perfect wintertime food, because it is warm and filling and spicy. Plus there are so many recipes and variations I rarely make it the same way twice. Sometimes I make Cincinnati Chili, sometimes I make Texas Chili, sometimes I make White Chicken Chili, and […]
