Rustic Tuscan Garlic Chicken Sheet Pan Dinner

Who doesn’t love a sheet pan dinner? It makes cooking for a family easy with minimal clean-up. I’m definitely on board with that. Even though I have a small family … just my husband, our daughter and me, I don’t mind an easy and quick solution for dinner some nights. I had some things in…

Black and Blue Chicken

Last night, I hosted my Thursday night book club. I love book club so much … I actually belong to 3 of them. My Thursday night book club consists of friends I’ve met through our daughters playing softball together. We’ve known each other since our girls were about 7 or 8 years old. Sandy and…

Chicken Thighs with Green Olives

Dennis and I were at Barnes & Noble yesterday when he stopped to look at an issue of Men’s Health magazine. He was looking through the recipes and saw a recipe for chicken with green olives and mandarin oranges and asked if I could make something like that for dinner. I said, absolutely, but don’t…

Cherry Balsamic Rosemary Chicken Thighs

Was it the pepper mixed with the cherry balsamic dressing that smelled so good? Or was it the fresh rosemary added to the mix that made the smells really came to life? I think both. I started out sprinkling kosher salt and fresh ground pepper on my boneless, skinless chicken thighs. Next I added one…
