Chicken Teryaki

Slow Cooker Chicken Teryaki

Posted on

The kids have found a new favorite meal at school during “Hot Lunch”, Chicken Teryaki. This isn’t something I’ve ever made before, so I started looking around for a recipe, since they think the school doesn’t serve it often enough. I came across a Freezer Cooking post on Ring Around the Rosies that looked like it contained ingredients the boys love, so I thought I’d give it a try. Of course, I made a few revisions along the way :) Continue reading »

Loaded Roasted Potatoes and Chicken

Loaded Roasted Potatoes and Chicken

Posted on

I don’t generally take pictures the first time I try out a new recipe. Often, I need to make changes to suit my family’s preferences, and sometimes it takes a few times of making a dish to really get it just right. This recipe, inspired by Cook Lisa Cook’s Loaded Potato and Buffalo Chicken Recipe is no exception. I can’t tolerate hot sauce, not even a little, it kills my tummy. So, I knew I wanted to substitute Worcestershire Sauce to see how that worked. I was happy that it turned out beautifully, though still a little spicy for me:) Ranch Dressing on the side, does help, and the boys want plenty of milk. I also eliminated the salt because the Worcestershire has enough sodium in it. Continue reading »

Menu Plan Monday

Posted on

Some of these recipes I have already posted on one blog or another, and have the posts up with pictures. The one from last Friday was actually my first post on this blog, and I just realized last week it had no pictures! I haven’t checked the Sim Card in the camera, but I did photograph each step (and Sat/Sun recipes too) so after I run some errands today I’ll try to get started uploading those. The Sat/Sun recipes should be up later this week. A couple of the recipes are new to us, I *try* to make 1-2 new recipes each week for variety, as our schedule allows. I’ll take some pictures and upload them (with any changes to the recipe that we want to try the next time I make it).

Friday Jan 25 – Chicken Tenderloins and Garlic Pasta – the recipe has been up for a while, I took pictures this time though, so I’ll be updating the post this week :) Continue reading »

New York Style Cherry Cheesecake

Posted on

Nick has been asking me to make a New York Style Cherry Cheesecake for weeks, since I first made a Sopapilla Cheesecake for our friend Sean’s birthday. I don’t know why, but I’ve always been too intimidated to make Cheesecake. I finally gave in and started searching for recipes. The one that sounded best to me was over at  Honey and Butter. It looked easy enough to do, and she said no cracks, no water bath, special wrapping, etc, which I was really trying to avoid. I don’t really care for Graham Crackers (y’all know I am picky), so I thought I’d swap it out for Nilla wafers, because I’ve used those before for pie recipes and it turned out ok. I made my list and headed to the store to get the ingredients. Continue reading »

Eggs R Done

Cream Cheese Scrambled Eggs

Posted on

It’s national egg month, and in honor of that I made Cream Cheese Scrambled Eggs for Brunch today. I may be the pickiest egg eater on the planet, aside from eggs that are included in a recipe, I’ll only eat Scrambled Eggs, and I have to be the one to cook them. I like my eggs dry, and in itty bitty pieces. I have tried to eat them out before, but people look at you weird when you order your eggs dry and burnt, and they are just never done enough for me. So, I just cook my own and eat them at home :) Continue reading »
