Chicken Broccoli Potato Soup

I came up with this concoction on a cold day when money was tight.  I started off using a whole chicken, cooking it up and using the carcass to create a nice chicken broth, adding onions, and removing the remaining chicken from the bone. Ingredients: Fresh Garlic Chicken (Whole using the carcass or a cooked…

Stuffed Bell Peppers

This is an easy bake meal with a few different variations.  You can choose either green, yellow, orange or red bell peppers.  I prefer a mix of all different colors for variety and taste. You’ll want to wash and cut the bell pepper at the top; using a knife to hallow out the insides.  You…

Roasted Chicken and Potatoes

It’s so easy to cook up a whole chicken with potatoes and broccoli or whatever your chosen vegetable is.  The only downside to this vs. a Rotisserie Chicken is that the baked whole chicken sits in the grease as it cooks, leaving a lot of fat behind, but you can baste out the chicken fats…

Strawberry Jello & Pudding Desert

Oh my what a delicious looking and tasting desert with Whip Cream, Fresh Strawberries, pudding or yogurt for a breakfast treat. You can add a brownie, ice cream, or add the ingredients to a gram cracker pie crust to enjoy as a pie.

Sauteed Vegetables

Take any vegetable and steam it to your liking; then sautee it in Olive Oil and garlic, basil, thyme, oregano or whatever spice blend you wish.  Change it up by using margarine or butter; mix in some white wine if you want.  Have fun with spices. Cover it with a Cheese Sauce or Sauce made…

Favorite Omelets

Omlets are so simple to make!  I sometimes struggle with filling it with the right amount of mixture and flipping it over at just the right time, so it seals up all the delicious ingredients, but the taste is always a pleaser! The Meat Lovers Omelet include Eggs, mushrooms, tomatoes, onions, cheese, and sausage or…

Grilled Chicken Salad

So healthy and easy to make, I wonder why I don’t have it atleast once a week!  It’s as simple as using left over chicken or baking some chicken breast, cooling it, and adding it to a nice mixture of green leafy lettuce with chopped fresh vegetables. I like to use tomatoes, onion, cucumbers, olives,…

Chicken Soup

Such a hearty meal simmering in the crock pot!  I use a leftover whole chicken after a baked chicken night and boil it until it falls off the bone.  Separating the chicken from the bone is the hardest part, but after that, it’s just a matter of adding your favorite chopped vegetables, some chicken stock,…

Baked Potatoes

Baked potatoes are a delicious side dish that can be cooked in quite a few different ways and can be used more than just a baked potato with a cut of meat.  The most easiest and basic way is to poke some wholes in it and pop it in the microwave or the oven, covering…

Mini Deserts

Almost any desert can be made into a mini decadent treat, as long as you have the right baking tools, which is really just a cup-cake pan and maybe a cake decorator. It just requires a little creativity, some cake mix, pudding, whip cream, frosting, fruit and maybe chocolate syrup. It’s simple and easy to…

Baked Salmon and Cream Sauce

Salmon or any kind of fish is a healthy yummy meal as long as it’s cooked right, de-boned, and even better with some sort of sauce. My brother taught me how to use Heavy Whipping Cream to make up a Cilantro or Jalapeno Sauce, or anything really; it works as a nice base when you…

Soft Tacos – Shrimp or Beef

My soft tacos are super easy, tasty, and always a hit. Often times I will just buy a Mexican Seasoning packet, but sometimes I will get creative with a jalapeno, garlic, and onion, maybe chili powder when creating my mixture.  I try to use lean beef or ground turkey; mixing either the mexican seasoning packet…
