Busy Saturday!

Lots of errands today! So, I haven’t spent much time in the kitchen. Right now I am planning out my meals for next week, and go to the grocery store later. One thing I am excited about making for dinner tomorrow is a Mexican soup called Pozole. Has anyone made it before? It’s kind of…

Pork chops and easy rice dish

When I got home from work, the only kind of meat I had in the fridge was a 2.5 pound pork tenderloin….and it was almost 6 o’clock. No time to roast that baby, so I decided I would cut it into pork chops and cook them that way so it would go faster. Here it…

Kreativ Blogger award!

I have to thank Kristi for bestowing this award to me! Thanks Kristi! If you haven’t been over to her site, she also has healthy dishes, with nutritional value/weight watchers points! So, now I have to tell you 7 things you may not know about me: 1. I make jewelry. I started taking beading classes…

Turkey Kielbasa vegetable stew

Thanks to Jessie and Michael of Chef Fresco, I tried a new recipe they made using sausage and veggies. I love trying new recipes. Usually when I make something new, I just wait and see if my family says anything. Sometimes they do, sometimes they don’t. BUT, I always know they like it when they…

Home made rolls/quiche in a bread bowl!

Thanks to Dave at Year on the Grill and Cathy at Noble pig, I tried out both of their recipes. Cathy posted a recipe for an egg that was cooked in a bread bowl. Dave went one step further by making his own rolls! The rolls turned out great! And they were super easy. They…

Batter-Fried Chicken

While re-reading a Cook’s Country Magazine from last summer, I came across a recipe for battered fried chicken. Now, I know what you are thinking…how is that healthy? Well, it’s not! About once every other month I will deep fry something, and that frying happens to be my home made tenders. I am still weary…

Hope for Haiti

Did anyone watch the show last night with George Clooney raising money for Haiti? I had to get a tissue, it’s so sad to see so many people without a place to live. And the thousands of kids who don’t even know if their parents are alive… If you didn’t get a chance to see…

My lunchtime dilemma this week…..

For some reason, I have not brought a lunch to work all week. Which, for me, is unheard of. I LOVE spending time the night before making healthy food, planning things out. But, I just haven’t done it this week. Which is kind of like going to work naked for me. So, that’s put me…

Banana chocolate chip muffins

Every month at my office, we celebrate birthdays/anniversary’s. I almost always bake something, and even though I’ve made banana chocolate chip muffins I wanted to make a different version. So I googled “banana muffins” and this recipe was the first one to pop up and it sounded great, so I went with it! It’s from…

My favorite baked potato soup ever!!!

Before I get into this recipe, I wanted to mention that it turned out the Special K package I got in the mail, they wanted to give the same thing to one of my readers! So, I picked a number from one of the comments left that day and Shelley won!! Congrats Shelley!!! I love…
