Chicken and Pasta


I shared a couple of dessert recipes last week, so I thought I should shake things up and share a main dish recipe today. This one is not the most beautiful of entrees, but it sure is tasty. For lack of a better description, I call it Chicken and Pasta. I adapted the recipe from […]

Black Bean Salsa Chicken


A couple summer ago my parents had a bountiful tomato crop, which they very kindly shared with us. I proceeded to make jars and jars of bottled salsa. But alas, no one will eat the salsa. You see, I’d never bottled salsa before. This was before the days of Pinterest, so I according to “experts”, […]

Chicken Pillows

It has been a ca-razy week at our house. Between track meets, piano lessons, basketball practice, scouts, and baseball games, we have been running around like crazy. Dinner was sandwiches not once, but twice this week. And they were eaten on the run. Yikes! As I was driving to and fro doing the mom thing, […]

Do you ever have days that you wake up totally organized, totally motivated, and ready to tackle all a few of the projects on your list. . .  Only to have life interfere with your amazing plans? Today was one of those days for me. Miracle of miracles, I actually sat down yesterday and planned […]

Grilled Chicken Marinade


Summer is in full blast around here. And that means lots of grilling. I’m not a huge fan of red meat, so grilled chicken is always my preference. I got this chicken marinade recipe from my friend Suzanne. She used fresh ginger, and that is awesome. I don’t usually have it on hand, so I […]

Lemon Chicken Pasta


Pasta is a favorite at our house, so I am always looking for new recipes. I found this Lemon Chicken Pasta recipe over at Mel’s Kitchen Cafe and knew I had to give it a try. Melanie said that it is packed with delicious flavor, and I will have to agree. I’ve never used cajun […]
