Ground Turkey

I am a big fan of ground turkey. I very quickly realized how I can incorporate it into different meals each week. I buy the bulk 6 pack at Costco and it lasts me for at least a month if not longer. I usually start by making tacos and with the seasoned leftovers I create […]


Chicken Tortilla Soup

I love soup especially in the fall/winter time. Last week was chicken, collard and veggie soup and this week was beef stew and chicken tortilla soup. So good! I didn’t use a recipe this time for my chicken tortilla soup, but I still thought I’d write down what I used just in case someone might […]


Chicken Soup with Collard Greens, Carrots and Brown Rice

I received my veggie and fruit mixed box from Farm Fresh To You last Friday and was surprised to find collard greens in the box. I have never cooked collard greens before, but instead of leaving them in the refrigerator, I decided to look up a recipe and go for it. I found a chicken […]


Easy Chicken Enchilada Recipe

I have been wanting to try making enchiladas for a long time now and when Luke brought home a rotisserie chicken it was the first think that popped into my head. I looked online and found an easy chicken enchilada recipe on Taste Of Home. The enchiladas were scrumptious and full of flavor and you […]


Turkey Burgers on the Menu

They were yummy and my husband even liked them and said they had good flavor. Yay for me! You should try them too. Ingredients 1-1/2 pounds ground turkey 2 tablespoons seasoned bread crumbs 2 tablespoons […]


Granola Bar Cookies

I love the recipes I find on Food Gawker and have been especially inspired by all the granola bar recipes I’ve found including this one from This Homemade Life. The kids love them and I can add whatever I have in the cupboard like chocolate chips, nuts, raisins, cranberries, etc. and there are no complaints. […]


Tomato Explosion

I love tomatoes in every form minus V8 juice. That stuff is nasty and makes me want to gag. Actually it reminds me of this awful cabbage diet I tried in high school. It lasted a day. Ha! Anyhoo…I am so happy my tomato plants are exploding with fruit and even Corbin eats them for […]


Choo Choo Your Food

The very next day Luke made the boys lunch while I was out doing errands and one upped me by making the Choo Choo Plater. He couldn’t say no to his son who asked him to make another fun plate of food. There is really no downside except when you are lacking creativity. Its actually […]


Fun with food and getting things done

Sometimes I surprise myself at how much I can accomplish and today was one of those days. Before noon I washed the dishes, washed the car, filled up my car with gas, played with my boys , made blueberry pancakes, a load of laundry done and made a fun lunch for Corbin. I know…if you […]
