Trying to find healthy food that my husband will enjoy is a challenge for me because he’s a really picky eater. Luckily, this Slow Cooker Chicken Teriyaki recipe is one he enjoys.
My goal is to get more chicken into our dinners because eat way too much beef and fried foods. While it’s tasty, it’s not very healthy. Chicken is amazingly low on calories and fat. Continue reading →
Personally, tacos are my favorite food. Well, my second favorite food. Spaghetti with meat sauce is my favorite food, but tacos are way easier to make…at least the Easy Slow Cooker Chicken Taco recipe is…I mean it’s right there in the name!
Anyway, I came up with this idea after eating some really tasty chicken tacos at a holiday party last year. The best part is that they were in a slow cooker! Continue reading →
I’m always looking new recipes to include in my repertoire. My husband is a super picky eater. He doesn’t like mashed potatoes or rice. How can you not like rice? Anyway, you can see how challenging it is to find something we both like, much less is healthy. Continue reading →
When I was a kid, my mom would take me grocery shopping with her during the summertime. The cool air of the grocery store felt good after being out in the heat of a northern California summer day.
While it was fun to browse the aisles, I was also learning about being an adult and how to take care of oneself. Continue reading →
What should I have for lunch? This question plagues us all year long, but summertime lunches should be light and easy to make. I tend to crave salads or sandwiches, so I tracked down some yummy recipes to share. Continue reading →
About 12 years ago, my sister concocted a recipe for chicken salad without mayonnaise. That’s right. For those of us who dislike mayo, there is a better alternative. Maybe this is paleo, maybe this is gluten-free, but Brenda threw together this recipe from things in her pantry before those buzzwords were all over social media and before social media.
What’s the mayonnaise replacement? Avocado. Holy crap this is one great sandwich.

Even before Homer Simpson was a thing, or in LEGO form, I loved donuts. Did you know that there is a National Donut Day? The great thing about being an adult is that Donut Day is whenever I want it to be. Continue reading →
What is chef style?
I’m not talking about your rank in the kitchen, but the manner in which you behave in the kitchen.
Chef style: Cleaning
Do you clean up as you go along or do you make a giant mess and clean it up at the end?
Or maybe you are lucky enough to have a wonderful mate who doesn’t mind cleaning up your giant mess since you create such wonderful culinary delights. Continue reading →
Every Thursday in our home is pizza night. We don’t always order the exact same thing, but we do have some favorite pizza toppings. We mix it up once in a while. My husband, however, is a picky eater, so we don’t get too crazy. We do have the Buffalo Chicken Pizza from Papa John’s once in a while, but mostly we get pepperoni. Continue reading →
Unless you’re from northern California, odds are you have no idea what I’m talking about and that’s sad.
I’m talking about the IT’S-IT ice cream sandwich…well, it’s the best ice cream sandwich,ever.
I’ve driven past the factory in the Bay Area and you can smell the oatmeal cookies baking. Oh the cookies!
Add to that a big old scoop of ice cream. My favorite was chocolate, but that was elusive. Vanilla was the most common and so was mint for some reason. Cappuccino was the back up for the chocolate. Continue reading →
