Baked Ranch Chicken

This is a really simple, tasty meal. I did add more ranch seasoning. This is a good weekend dinner since it does take some time to cook.

Italian Wedding Soup

admin / February 8, 2021

This is one of our go to soup recipes. I use a meatloaf mix, which is just equal parts beef, pork and veal. If find it better than just doing 8 ounces of beef and pork. Also my son added in around 1/4 cup of red wine, you don’t need to do it, but it gives it a nice taste.…

Easy Pork Dumplings

Since being stuck home, I have put my cooking skills to work. I also made my 16 year old son help out as well. He’s doing culinary in school, so I need to make him to a little work. These came out amazing. Definitely a keeper, so I figured I would share the two recipes I used. First, making the…

Air Fryer Chicken Parmesan

admin / January 20, 2020

I love chicken parmesan. Since the weather was cold and nasty, I decided to make some marinara sauce as well. There’s nothing better than your own homemade sauce. I’m going to do another post about the simple marinara sauce I make. It takes a total of 1 and a half hours to make, but on with the meal. I had…

Instant Pot Chicken Teriyaki Bowls

admin / February 2, 2019

I have made this a couple times, my son loves it. We usually never have leftovers and it’s so easy to make. He helps me cut up the veggies. He needs the practice, since he wants to go to culinary school. If you haven’t gotten yourself an Instant Pot, you should. It’s a lifesaver. I originally found this recipe from: Tastes Better From Scratch.

Instant Pot Tuscan Chicken Pasta

I absolutely love my Instant Pot. I don’t use it as much as I like to though. Searching through Pinterest, I come across this recipe from: 365 Days of Slow Cooking Figured I’d give it a try, my son is a picky eater. So we tried it tonight and he loved it except for the sun dried tomatoes. Still a keeper. If you haven’t…

Skillet Pork Chops with Garlic Mushroom Sauce

I think I’m obsessed with my cast iron skillet. Everything I have cooked in it, just comes out perfect. It’s not dry, it doesn’t heat up the kitchen and with last weeks heat wave it was a life saver. So I looked to Pinterest for some ideas, I came across this recipe. I don’t like to do a lot of things…

Lemon-Spinach Chicken

My son actually found this recipe for us. It is delicious! Making it in my cast iron skillet made it super moist too. What I also liked was the uncooked cherry tomatoes. I have some serious texture issues. I love tomatoes, but I hate them cooked. Leave a comment below and let me know what you think about it.

Beef and Broccoli Ramen

So I finally went out and bought a cast iron skillet. I have to say it’s the best thing I have every bought. I never thought I would ever say cookware is something I would be proud of. I made this recipe in a skillet and it made it so much better. The broccoli was soft and crunchy. My picky…

Crock Pot Smothered Pork Chops

admin / November 8, 2017

Since school sports are starting, crockpot meals are a life saver. This recipe has a really good taste, but I will never use bone-in pork chops again. The bone fell right off the pork chops and ended up with little shards in the gravy. So no leftovers.  Next time I’ll either do a boneless pork chop or a pork shoulder.…
