Five Ingredient Chicken with Sweet and Spicy Broccoli


I realize it’s been two whole months since I posted a recipe so┬áam way overdue. I made this delicious meal last month, and it’s super easy to put together. I cooked the chicken on top of the stove, but you can definitely use the grill if that’s your preference. Ingredients 2 skinless, boneless chicken breastsContinue reading “Five Ingredient Chicken with Sweet and Spicy Broccoli”

Honey Chipolte BBQ Chicken Sandwich


I hope everyone had a wonderful 4th of July with your family and/or friends, and you got to indulge in some really good eats!

Baked Cod with Basil Chive Yogurt Sauce


Last weekend, I stopped at my neighborhood┬áSmart & Final for just a few things, and decided to pick up some frozen Cod. I typically prefer my fish to be fresh, but when in a pinch (or I’m being lazy), I’ll grab some frozen. I wanted something light, but flavorful so perused a bunch of recipesContinue reading “Baked Cod with Basil Chive Yogurt Sauce”

Pennette Lasagna


A couple of weeks ago, a coworker friend of mine brought me in some of his homemade lasagna and it was incredibly delicious. It took me a few meals to finish it as I like to eat pasta sparingly; however, when it was gone, it left me yearning for more, so I decided to makeContinue reading “Pennette Lasagna”

Creamy, Dreamy Chili Mac & Cheese Casserole


I decided since I was off work today, and it was a long & grueling week due to our fiscal year-end crunch, some comfort food was definitely in order. I was thrilled and honored when I was asked by┬áRag├║┬« earlier this week to create my own spin on their Chili Mac recipe, so┬áI chose toContinue reading “Creamy, Dreamy Chili Mac & Cheese Casserole”

Rigatoni Lasagna Pie


One of the things I truly love about Facebook, aside from being able to stay connected to family & friends both near and far, is the food pictures and/or recipes which inspire me to get into the kitchen and try them out. Most recently, a childhood friend posted a photo of her rigatoni pie, andContinue reading “Rigatoni Lasagna Pie”

Slow Cooker Beef Ribs – Set It & Forget It


I fully realize this is my third recipe for boneless beef ribs, but figure everyone can use another great and easy crock pot recipe, right? This literally takes about ten minutes to throw everything together prior to cooking. The sauce is just slightly different from my other recipes, but equally as delicious. You can useContinue reading “Slow Cooker Beef Ribs – Set It & Forget It”

Lean Crescent Taco Pie


I regularly receive emails from Pillsbury, and after seeing a yummy one for a Crescent Taco Bake, I decided to buy the few (missing) ingredients I needed. I made some modifications, like I normally do, to make this a bit healthier/lighter and added a couple of ingredients I thought would increase the tasty factor; however,Continue reading “Lean Crescent Taco Pie”

Mustard Maple Glazed Chicken With Apples & Leeks


Sorry I haven’t posted in a while… I did a little traveling to South Florida and went on the most amazing adventure trip to Costa Rica with a ginormous group of friends. Truly EPIC! But I’m back now, and have a scrumptious recipe to share (courtesy of my Mom). I was very anxious to seeContinue reading “Mustard Maple Glazed Chicken With Apples & Leeks”
