Baked Penne with Chicken and Kale

How do you get a 2-year old and a slightly-reformed veggie hater to eat leafy greens? You add pasta. It never fails. We’ve set a couple of goals this year, one of the big ones – and probably the most difficult one – is to eat more plants. There’s a direct correlation between the size [...]

Texas Tortilla Soup

Amanda chose this week’s Project Pastry Queen challenge: Texas Tortilla Soup. I was super happy to put this on the menu this week. One, our oven is broken (waaah!) and that has really messed with my mind. And our menu. Second, I’ve posted the soup before and it was in dire need of a new [...]

Today’s recipe is an oldie, but a goodie. It’s also easy to make! After getting the recipe from a friend, I used to make it all the time – it was one of my favorite lunches to take to work. I could make it on Sunday and have lunch and snacks taken care of for [...]

40 Chicken Recipes

Or tomorrow. Or next Thursday. Sometimes there’s nothing that sucks the creativity out of me faster than hearing the word, “chicken.” I don’t know what it is.

Chicken, peach, and sweet potato skewers

Are you tired of grilled foods? Me, neither The 30-day streak of 100+ degree weather, now that’s a different story. But not the foods that come along with it.
