Garlicky Asian Chicken Thighs

Most days I have zero ideas what I’m making for dinner.  So I take out a package of chicken and hope for the best.  Some days I get zero complaints.  Which is crazy because I have two picky tiny humans.  One of which likes meat and one of which likes cheese and carbs.  So it’s

Cheesy-Garlicky Baked Meatballs

My son is obsessed with meatballs.  I’d say there never was a meatball he didn’t like.  Which is weird because on the whole, he doesn’t usually like meat.  He’d much prefer cheese and bread.  But meatballs.  Meatballs he loves.  I get a request several times a week for spaghetti and meatballs.  Which I try to

Healthy Chicken and Vegetable Noodle Soup

It’s winter and I’m cold.  And the kids had some “cold” days off school last week.  It truly was #thewinterbreakthatdoesntend.  LOL.  I mean, I love my kids and I love winter break, but it’s not the same as summer break.  It’s not all fun and games and you can’t send them outside to play for

Slow Cooker Beef and Black Bean Chili

I love a good slow cooker chili.  Throw a bunch of stuff into the slow cooker in the am and dinner is ready by the pm.  The best part is, it doesn’t really matter what you put in it.  For me, it kind of depends on what I have on hand.  Usually some kind of

Cheesy Taco Pasta

So maybe taco pasta is a culinary fusion I’d never tried before.  But both my children love tacos (well tacos with just meat and cheese) and both my children love pasta.  So the other day I decided to make a cheesy taco pasta.  I mean why not?   I had all the ingredients for tacos so

Mediterranean Chicken Tacos

I love tacos.  There I said it.  There should be a support group for people like me that love tacos.   We could call it Tacos Anonymous.  Except it wouldn’t really be anonymous.  And we could serve tacos as refreshments.  I mean, if you were to tell me say during the middle of my workout class

Taco Salad

I don’t usually make salad for the fam.  I think it’s because there’s an awful lot of work that goes into making it and usually it’s only KB and me that will eat it.  I mean my kids will eat some of what goes into the salad…except the lettuce.  So there’s that.  BUT I will

Barbecue Chicken Quesadilla

My children went through a phase when they would only eat quesadillas.  It seemed kind of weird to me at the time (to eat the same thing every day), but then again, these are the same children that will eat chicken nuggets for breakfast without a second thought.  Quesadillas are really just like grilled cheese

Hot Dog Grilled Cheese

Who doesn’t love a good grilled cheese?  I know I do!  My children do too.  So does KB.  He’s really into this grilled cheese restaurant that opened a location near us.  The other location is about 30 minutes away but this one is about 7 minutes, which may prove to be dangerous.  I mean it’s

Cheesy Mushroom Toast

I wouldn’t say I’m obsessed with avocado toast.  Trust me I’ve had it and you won’t hear me complaining. There’s something very comforting about toast…the ultimate carbohydrate as a vehicle for deliciousness.  And I always make toast with real butter.  Real, salted, butter.  Absolutely nothing wrong with that.  A crispy piece of bread slathered with
