Ridiculously Easy Salsa Enchilada Chicken

Ridiculously Easy Salsa Enchilada Chicken

Even though summer is here, I don’t always want to grill. I’m not a huge fan of having the oven on all the time, but with the weather not getting to “crazy-hot” status yet, I’ve continued to use the oven for dinners as of late simply because it’s easier (and because it doesn’t let as […]

Breakfast Omelet Roll

Breakfast Omelet Roll

(I am a compensated Great Day Farms ambassador.) It’s no secret how much I love eggs. I always loved eggs as a child, my mom making me a steamy pile of scrambled egg yumminess for breakfast that I’d devour in 2.4 seconds flat before school or on the weekends. But my true love of eggs […]

We are HUGE fans of barbecue anything, but particularly of barbecue sauce.

Bacon-Wrapped Jalapeño Popper Chicken Recipe

One of my favorite combinations is jalapeño and cheese. (Holla!) Jalapeño poppers are fun little nuggets of awesome, but not particularly a dinner kind-of item. That is, until I decided to wrap it with turkey bacon, stuff it into chicken, and bread it with Panko to make this sumptuous bacon-wrapped jalapeño popper chicken recipe. OH […]

Without hesitation, I responded with a resounding, “YES!” quite excited at the idea of recreating our restaurant […]

Tuesdays for us are always “Taco Tuesdays.” This week we chose to make some scrumdiddlyumptious shredded chicken tacos.

You already know our fascination with spinach and artichoke dip, and turning it into awesome dinner ideas, like with our Crock Pot Spinach and Artichoke Lasagna (oh yes)!

DIY KFC Mashed Potato Bowl

Part of being a mother is realizing that chicken nuggets will always be on the menu. And why not? They’re a lot of fun (and tasty, too)! However, I like to jazz things up sometimes.

Pampered Chef Chicken Broccoli Wreath Recipe

Pampered Chef Chicken Broccoli Wreath Recipe

I used to sell Pampered Chef. I own probably more than half their catalog, as I was quite passionate about it (hence why I began selling it). In fact, the only reason I stopped selling it was because I gave birth and my leave-of-absence hadn’t been put it properly, so I subsequently lost my almost […]

Consider us humongous Tyson-lovers in our household. Tyson has made their chicken nuggets and patties 100% all-natural, and so we gobble ‘em up until we grow feathers. Maybe. I loved working with Tyson before, so of course I didn’t hesitate to work with them again for their new, spectacularly awesome Grilled and Ready™ Frozen and […]

If you’re a friend of mine on Facebook, you may have read about my “accidental dinner experiment” the other night. You see, we meant to make two traditional Chicken Pot Pies for dinner (yes, we make two to feed our family of eight). However, with only one stick of Crisco when the recipe called for […]

With the weather turning cold, it’s time to break out the warm fuzzy recipes. This makes great leftovers you can use in different ways, use your imagination with what’s left!
