Chicken Imperial


As you know, or at least I hope you know, the Top Chef Masters finale was this past Wednesday.  If you don’t want a spoiler – stop reading now.  You’ve been warned.   You may remember my track record with Top Chef.  Well, lighting struck again and Chris Cosentino WON!!  All I could do is bounce up and down on the couch when announced the win!  Let’s be honest, I

Puke Chicken (Chicken & Rice with Béchamel)

Puke Chicken FEAT

I know half of you probably checked out this post just because of the name.  I promise it’s not as scary as it sounds.   Growing up my favorite dish was Pork Chops, Rice and White Sauce.  My mom made it every year for my birthday.  When I moved in with my dad in high school, my step-mom was awesome and continued to make this dinner for me.  Once I

Carla Hall’s Fried Chicken

Carla Hall's Fried Chicken 1

This month’s Crazy Cooking Challenge is Fried Chicken.  Yum!  The thought of fried chicken takes me back to my childhood.  My grandma was from Tennessee and every Sunday she would make supper for the family.  Fried chicken, white cornbread, mashed potatoes, gravy, corn, biscuits.     I was all a twitter when Tina announced this month’s recipe of choice.  I went hunting, hoping I could find someone who had made

Garlic & Herb Roasted Chicken

Garlic & Herb Roasted Chicken FEAT

Thing 1 has been very into drawing lately.  This week he busted out the Magna Doodle he got for his 2nd birthday.  His favorite thing to “draw”…having me trace his hands and me hand and Dad’s hand and Thing 2’s hand.  You get the idea.  I caught this the other morning before he could erase everything and have me start all over.   {Thing 1 just saw me typing up

Butter Cream Chicken


No small talk today.  We’re cutting to the chase.  I’ve been dying to share this recipe with you.  I’ve been a fan of Jamie’s blog and her recipes for a while now, a good while.  I have yet to make one of her recipe that we didn’t love and add to our standard meal rotation.   This chicken is a different level.  It transported me.  I felt like I was

Chicken Parmesan Pizza

Chicken Parm Pizza 2

This post was originally published as part of my main dish recipe contributions to My Favorite Finds ——————————– At our house, my Chicken Parmesan is the all time most requested recipe.   I always make enough for leftovers so I can cook once and we can eat twice.  This time when we had leftovers, I didn’t want to just do the same old same old reheat and eat routine.  So I made

Seasoned Chicken for Tacos

Chicken Burritos 2

Happy Tuesday everyone!  I hope you’re ready for a little spice today to break through the cold weather.  As much as we love to hit up our local taco shop, some days it’s just easier to set up a taco bar at home.  Everyone can add the toppings they like, and there’s no fussing – especially with my seasoned chicken for tacos.  You could totally make this recipe for burritos,

Skillet Chicken and Ravioli

Skillet Chicken & Ravioli FEAT

Today’s recipe was a guest post I did for Jenny over at The NY Melrose Family.  A few of us were lucky enough to guest post for her right after she had her daughter.  I wanted something easy to whip up, like easy enough Jenny’s husband could throw it together while she naps before dinner.  *hint, hint*     I saw the original recipe for this dish in Food Network

Green Chicken Enchiladas

Green Chicken Enchiladas FEAT

I love making easy food.  Enchiladas are one of my favorites.  I mean, come on, tortillas, chicken, sour cream {my favorite condiment ever} and green sauce…how could that not be good?  Rhetorical question people. 9 times out of 10 when I’m cooking dinner I’m managing the boys too.  I usually have to pause and do the “Mail Time” song and dance from Blue’s Clues for Thing 1 and then “wiggle, wiggle,

Chicken & Cornbread Casserole

Chicken & Cornbread Casserole FEAT

I’ve been obsessed with Miss Mary Bobo’s Boarding House for years.  Mike’s been to Miss Mary Bobo’s twice on trips to the Jack Daniel’s distillery.  Oh, and he’s met Lynne Tolley both times.  Yeah.  He knows I get jealous so each time he goes he brings me a new cookbook from their gift shop. This last time, he texted me pictures of the books they have, just to make sure

Cheesy Adobo Chicken Hash

Cheesy Adobo Chicken Hash FEAT

I’m generally a recipe girl when it comes to cooking.  While I’ll tweak recipes to fit my family’s tastes and switch out ingredients to try different combos, I like having a base to start with.  But some times I go rouge and try new things.  This is one of those times.  And it worked out beautifully.   I had a night where I didn’t know what I wanted to eat

I hope everyone had an excellent Halloween.  I know we did.  We took the boys trick or treating in my mom’s neighborhood.  We had our traditional grilled cheese and tomato soup dinner before going out – seriously the perfect comfort food. The boys had a great time.  There was a big group of my sister’s friends and Otto couldn’t get enough of the big kids.  Are you ready for the

Chicken Breasts Supreme

Chicken Breasts Supreme 1

I can’t even begin to tell you how insanely delicious this dinner is.  Not only does Chicken Breasts Supreme take 15 minutes from start to finish, but it’s made up of simple Southern flavors that are sure to satisfy.  Oh, and this is the best cream sauce I’ve ever tasted in my entire life.  Seriously.  I was eating spoonfuls of it out of the pan after dinner.  Don’t judge.  

Cajun Ranch Chicken Pasta


If you are reading this, you can thank my ability to schedule posts.  My laptop is almost constantly dying on me since the fan stopped working.  Boo. Our amazing friend Kyle is currently working on the computer so I can be back in full blogging mode.  ‘Cause he’s the best and all.  And he’s Mike’s Dr. Pepper obsessed bromance.  But he’s great, seriously.  And I’m not just sucking up, i
