Steak with Garlic Shrimp Cream Sauce Recipe

Steak with Garlic Shrimp Cream Sauce Recipe

Yesterday was Valentine’s Day and I cooked dinner for Hubby and I. Many go out to eat on Valentine’s Day but I prefer to stay at home. I can cook, even a bit fancier meal, for less than it costs to go out and we don’t have all the crowds and waiting in line as if we go out. Hubby is a meat and potatoes kind of guy so that … Continue Reading →

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).

(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. Many are calling these hot pots (hotpots) right now, but it is still a pressure cooking. 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 … 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 →

Chicken Piccata – Recipe

Yummy! I love classic dishes and Chicken Piccata (or Veal Piccata) is one of them. There is a bit of variation, but tonight I used thin sliced Sanderson Farms chicken breasts (disclosure: I am being compensated by Sanderson Farms, opinions are my own) and the pan sauce has chicken stock (or you could use white wine), lemon, a bit of butter, and capers. It is so unctuous and flavorful but so … Continue Reading →
Grilled Beer Can Chicken – The Juiciest Chicken Ever!

Grilled Beer Can Chicken – The Juiciest Chicken Ever!

Hubby has been making beer can chicken for several years now out on the grill and it is truly my favorite grilled chicken recipes. It is the most moist and tasty chicken every single time. I grew up with my dad grilling all the time, but never did any of his chicken taste this good or was this moist (sorry Dad). The beer can chicken is consistently amazing! Graciously, Hubby … Continue Reading →
