Lemon Garlic Chicken In The Crockpot

Lemon Garlic Chicken Crock Pot Recipe So one of my Christmas presents was an upgraded crock-pot with a programmable timer on it. I feel like I now own the Mercedes of crock-pots. Anyways, I’m really excited for the new crock-pot since I can finally crock-pot during the week while I’m at work. I made the lemon garlic chicken meal over the weekend just to make sure the everything worked properly and it did!  Overview of the meal: I forgot to set the crock-pot on high and it took a lot longer to cook which was unfortunate since I was starving!!!  The positive: It was super easy to put together. I even … Continue reading Lemon Garlic Chicken In The Crockpot

Herbed Pasta with Toasted Breadcrumbs

Happy New Year! To start with can you believe the only resolution from 2012 I accomplished was cooking more? In a little over a year I made over 100 new meals according to my blog. My goal for 2013 is to continue trying new recipes. I want to cook at home more and not eat out as much. With that being said I have to find ways to make that work. I’ve created a meal plan for the month with a few things in mind. They won’t always be healthy. Having a picky eater prevents me from having super healthy … Continue reading Herbed Pasta with Toasted Breadcrumbs

White Chicken Enchiladas

White Chicken Enchiladas So I love enchiladas but I hate the red sauce. It creeps me out but the green sauce is totally fine by me. Weird I realize. I’ve been searching for a recipe for enchiladas that both the husband and I would enjoy. When I came across this version I knew I’d enjoy but wasn’t sure how Chad would. I figured if I loaded it with cheese it would be a hit. My theory only proved to be half correct. Chad thought it was okay at best where I really enjoyed the enchiladas. They were super easy to make … Continue reading White Chicken Enchiladas

Chicken Ranch Pasta

Chicken Ranch Pasta When I found this recipe I knew it had potential. I’m not a huge fan of the ranch scene but since Chad is and he’s picky I knew I could take one for the team and give this recipe a try. It’s super easy to make and I always enjoy making my own sauce which this recipe has you do. Don’t be fooled though it’s super easy it’s literally milk, ranch, butter and flour. The meal came out great and it wasn’t an overload of ranch which I especially appreciated. The only downside is that if you hate washing … Continue reading Chicken Ranch Pasta

Spinach Tomato Orzo Soup

Spinach Tomato Orzo Soup Now that the weather has cooled down here I’ve been wanting to make soup. Last week I was craving a hot bowl of soup. However, I was limited on ingredients.

Luckily, I had all the ingredients and was able to feed my craving. The soup was really easy to make. and it had good flavor. I added a little lemon juice for some … Continue reading Spinach Tomato Orzo Soup

Perfect Chicken

Perfect Chicken When I saw this recipe I thought there was no way this chicken is really perfect. I mean how many things in life are perfect? Not many in my book especially when there is always room for improvement. So I was a skeptic going into this recipe. The chicken was surprisingly good. Well maybe not surprisingly good but we both enjoyed it more than we anticipated. The recipe doesn’t require a lot of ingredients and it’s super easy to make. I didn’t exactly follow the recipe I found online but I came close. I think I perfected the … Continue reading Perfect Chicken

Pepperoni Pasta Bake

Pepperoni Pasta Bake Living with a picky eater sometimes means to my dismay cooking a separate meal for the husband. The night I made the pumpkin ricotta pasta was one of those nights. I thought there was potential for this meal. I feel like if it has the main ingredients of a pizza it will be a hit. Turns out I’m wrong. Chad was not a fan of this meal. However, I feel like if you like vegetables this would spruce up this meal. He thought it was okay but also said I never need to make it again. I guess if … Continue reading Pepperoni Pasta Bake
