Easy Chicken Pozole Soup

Easy Chicken Pozole Soup

Pozole, which means hominy, is an amazing soup from Mexico. Pronounced pa-sol-eh. This is not an authentic recipe, but rather my version of an easy homemade pozole. I’m not Mexican, but I love the flavors of Mexican foods so much and I love soup so I had been wanting to make this for quite some time. I have seen pozole made on cooking shows over the years and it always … Continue Reading →

Nutty Blueberry Quinoa Oatmeal Recipe – Delicious and Packed with Protein!

How good does Nutty Blueberry Quinoa Oatmeal sound? A perfect breakfast for those cool mornings headed our way. Just imagine holding on to that warm bowl of creamy oatmeal and the comforting, rich scent of cinnamon plus with the burst of brightness from the blueberries and the extra crunch of nutty pecans. Mixing in quinoa with the oatmeal only changes the texture a bit so even the pickiest of eaters … Continue Reading →
Buffalo Chicken Pasta Bake

Buffalo Chicken Pasta Bake

Last week I created my version of a Buffalo Chicken Pasta Bake. Moore’s Marinades sent me a bottle of Moore’s Original Buffalo Wing Sauce and I wanted to do something other than just wings. I was thinking of Caitlan, D and the twins when I decided to make this recipe. The twins are not always good about eating their veggies so I wanted to get some extra vegetables in the … Continue Reading →
A Healthier Casserole – Cheesy Chicken Broccoli Quinoa

A Healthier Casserole – Cheesy Chicken Broccoli Quinoa

Many of us are tryig to eat healthier in the new year. Chicken can be a very lean meat for us but it is important to realize all the extras you put into it, especially in casseroles (or hot dish). I’ve been working with #SandersonFarms for  few months now and currently we are focusing on healthier eating. (Disclosure: I am compensated via OM Media on behalf of Sanderson Farms for … Continue Reading →
Classic Beef Pot Roast in Under an Hour in Power Pressure Cooker

Classic Beef Pot Roast in Under an Hour in Power Pressure Cooker

Recently I received a Power Pressure Cooker to review. I have never used a pressure cooker before so this was all totally new to me. Hubby has more of an old fashioned pressure cooker that he uses for canning, but I don’t mess with that one at all. Honestly, I was a bit skeptical that the Power Pressure Cooker could cook food as fast as it says – but I … Continue Reading →
Coq au Vin – A Classic Chicken Recipe

Coq au Vin – A Classic Chicken Recipe

Coq au Vin is a classic chicken dish. Actually it was a way to cook old roosters way back when. The French name translates to rooster in wine. These days most of us only have access to regular chickens at the store but this still makes a great dish. It is time consuming but has such a wonderful flavor. I made this for the first time myself tonight for dinner … Continue Reading →
Baked Mostaccioli in Copper Chef

Baked Mostaccioli in Copper Chef

Who doesn’t love oven baked pasta with lots of ooey gooey cheese on top? This is one of Hubby and T’s (he still isn’t here, but he loves it) favorite meals. What was great about making it this time is that I only used two pots. One was to boil the pasta, everything else I did right in the Copper Chef pan that was sent to me. (disclosure: I was … Continue Reading →
Bacon Cheeseburger Soup in the Slow Cooker

Bacon Cheeseburger Soup in the Slow Cooker

Hubby found a recipe for bacon cheeseburger soup last week and sent it to me on Facebook. It is rare for him to send me recipes and so even though I wasn’t sure if I would like this bacon cheeseburger soup I decided to make it for him. I’m really glad I did because it is delicious! Also, I adore soup and could eat it every day, even in the … Continue Reading →
Chicken Tortilla Soup Recipe

Chicken Tortilla Soup Recipe

Tonight’s dinner was one of the best tasting soups I have ever made, Chicken Tortilla Soup! YUM YUM YUM! The original recipe I saw on Sara Moulton’s Weeknight Meals show on PBS for Charred Tomato, Chicken and Tortilla Soup. I adjusted it a bit, of course, but wow was this good! If you have never watched her show, you should. I have tried many of her recipes and love them … Continue Reading →

National Soup Month and National Slow Cooker Month [Infographic]

January is both National Soup Month and National Slow Cooker Month! I love soup always and I love the ease of using my slow cooker (I actually call it a Crock Pot still). For this week’s infographic I found this fun one that is all about making your own homemade soup in your slow cooker. Yes! One note about adding pasta though to the slow cooker is that it can … Continue Reading →
