Honey Ginger Chicken Thighs

Over the weekend, I was asking Dennis what he’d like for dinner this week. One of his requests was to have chicken thighs with an Asian flavor. While at Trader Joe’s doing my weekly grocery shopping, I bought a package of fresh ginger and figured out what I’d do with it once I got home….

Sweet Italian Chicken Sausage and Vegetable Sheet Pan Dinner

The colors in tonight’s dinner are so vibrant! This meal just yelled out “healthy” to me. I had Sweet Italian chicken sausages in the freezer that I wanted to make this week, but didn’t want them in a bun or as part of a pasta dish. I’ve seen so many one pan dinners that I…

Sicilian Seasoned and Prosciutto Wrapped, Breaded Chicken Breasts

This may just be my favorite chicken recipe that I’ve come up with! I actually came up with this recipe while chatting with my sister on the phone. We were chatting and laughing, having a great time. I love the phone calls with my sister! It seems they mostly happen on a Sunday late afternoon,…

Balsamic Chicken over Mini Heirloom Tomato Caprese Salad

It’s almost the end of summer, but it is still summer. School is starting up soon, if it hasn’t already for some kids. I keep hearing on t.v., “summer is almost over”, and I think to myself “where did the time go”. This year, summer seemed to fly by. I think in part, for me,…

Pesto Chicken

This pesto had such great color. It looked so fresh, which also made it look so healthy to me as well. I made a batch of pesto to pour over chicken for tonight’s dinner. I made my pesto using 3-1/2 cups of fresh basil, 1 entire head of garlic, 3/4 cup of walnuts, grated parmesan,…

Chicken, Mango and Black Bean Burritos

Last night, my lovely nieces, Madeline and Olivia were at our house for a sleepover. Maddie and Olivia are also our Goddaughters. Their older sister, Alexis, was at work so was unable to join us for the evening. It was so much fun listening to Kylie, Maddie and Olivia chat and laugh. The sound of…

Chicken Thighs in a Balsamic Mustard Sage Marinade

Last night’s dinner reminded me of a simple, comfort supper that is great for any weeknight, but also works for impressing your guests. I simply sprinkled kosher salt and pepper on chicken thighs and poured over a mixture of olive oil, dijon mustard, balsamic vinegar, minced garlic, and dried sage. I let the chicken sit…

Salsa Verde Chicken

As I was grocery shopping the other day, I noticed Trader Joe’s had a new salad I hadn’t seen before … southwest chopped salad. It is a salad kit, like others they offer.  In it you will find green cabbage, romaine, cotija cheese, roasted pepitas, tortilla strips, green onion, cilantro and spicy avocado dressing.  This…

Cinco de Mayo Nachos

Last night for Cinco de Mayo, I decided to make a big cast iron skillet of chicken nachos for Dennis and myself for dinner. Kylie was out with her friend, so it was just the two of us hanging out in front of the t.v. watching a movie. I started by seasoning and roasting two…

Rosemary Parmesan Crusted Chicken

It has been quite a few weeks since I lasted posted. I was visiting Wisconsin to celebrate my sister’s 50th birthday. We had so much fun, it was a wonderful trip! I had a great time with my Mom, we really had a blast. Our week started out with my Mom getting a new car….
