Chicken Taco Salad

Taco Salad, remade.   When I was young,  my mother made taco salad all the time.    Ground beef, lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, pinto beans, Catalina dressing and Doritos.   We had this version of taco salad almost weekly. When I married and became the “cook” I began making the salad too. It’s very kid friendly, it’s …

Chicken Migas

Generally I agree with The Pioneer Woman on most food related issues. To me though, Migas is not Migas without Chorizo. Chorizo is really greasy and fatty though. 😦 A local market, I adore Sprouts Farmer’s Market, sells ground chicken chorizo. I decided to give the chicken a try and boy, howdy I’m glad I …

Slow Cooking Monday, Back to Basics

Back to Basics This week, I want to focus on basic slow cooker uses like cooking frozen meat. Many times I use my slow cooker to make full meals, other times I use my slow cooker to cook frozen chicken. The slow cooker makes cooking frozen meat so easy. I sometimes shop in bulk, I …

Turkey and Gnocchi Soup

One of the great things about Thanksgiving, besides the family time is left-overs….turkey to be specific. What do you do with all that left-over turkey once you’ve eaten a few of the pre-requisite turkey and stuffing sandwiches? I love using the left-over turkey to create new twists on recipes. Olive Garden has this amazing soup. …

Chicken Pot Pie

What could be more comforting or more fall – winter-ey than chicken pot pie? That question was totally rhetorical. In my opinion, no store-bought pot pie will ever come close to the taste of a home-made pot pie. I’ll be totally honest, home-made takes a little more time to make, but it is totally worth …

Easy Chicken Tacos

I had both kiddos home sick yesterday.   So, yesterday was a hectic day.  Did I mention that my husband works from home on Tuesdays and Thursdays?  No?  Well, he does so we had a full house yesterday. Dinner sort of snuck up on me.   Not that I’m saying it tip-toed up behind me and spooked …

My new favorite cooking show….

If you’re like me and you can’t sleep you either end up watching cooking shows or infomercials. Okay, maybe that’s just me. Of course, sometimes I watch crime TV, but I digress. One night last week, I stumbled upon Nadia G and Bitchin-Kitchen. Funny non? I made Nadia’s Bitchin’ Kitchen’s Crispy Medallione (fried ravioli) I …

Mini, but mighty meaty.

I must confess, I make meatloaf using muffin pans.  Is that strange?  Probably.  See, sometimes it’s like Dinner Time Fight Club around here.  Everybody, and I mean everybody wants the crunchy bits.  How can I make everybody happy and support family harmony? Mini meatloaf.  It’s the only why I know how to make sure everyone …

Red Tortilla Soup with Chicken

I love soups…love them…gobble them up. Soups freeze well, they taste better on day two or day three, I love soup. If it’s a Tex-Mex soup….even better. Tex-Mex is one of my true food loves. Maybe it’s because I’m from Texas, maybe it’s just because Tex-Mex is Awesomesauce. If you’re in the northern part of …

Freezer cooking on a small scale…

When I say freezer cooking…you say? Eek! No way! You’re a crazy lady! Okay, maybe not, but I’m sure you’re not giddy. Freezer cooking to some sounds like a whole day, 30 meal affair. It does not have to be….. Don’t be scared, it’s not so bad. Freezer cooking does not have to take up …
