Apple Barbecue Grilled Chicken

The end of summer means back to school, cooler nights (and hopefully cooler days), and transitioning to fall foods. To celebrate the unofficial end of summer I grilled chicken and topped it with a chunky apple barbecue sauce to welcome fall. Inspired by a dish that a chain restaurant used to serve in the fall […]

In fact, with sales and coupons at Earth Fare recently, grilled lobster tails have almost became common place at our house 😉 I must admit that I wasn’t sure […]

Cheesy Herb Grilled Potatoes

Foil pouches have been a favorite of mine for many years now. I expect that the first complete meal I ever cooked was the first time I made “turtles” in Girl Scouts. While I still love “turtles,” I now like to cook many other dishes in foil pouches. My favorite may be potatoes. Besides the […]

Sauerbraten (ish) Meatloaf

Motivated by a desire to have sauerbraten, I created this recipe after debating between making meatloaf or sweet-and-sour meatballs. The gingersnaps, brown sugar and vinegar in the meatball sauce seemed like a similar flavor profile to sauerbraten, thus the birth of my new favorite dish. I love this meatloaf. It is easier and less time […]

What image comes to mind when you hear the words “Chicken and Dumplings?” Well, my image looks something like this: Your image of chicken and dumplings may be very different.

Cheesy Chicken Enchilada Casserole

Inspired by my sister, I decided to make chicken enchiladas one day. I found a great sale on bone-in chicken breasts at the store earlier in the week and had cooked most of them in my pressure cooker to use later. Although I had froze most of the cooked meat, I still had a couple […]

Braised Lamb Shanks, a Crock Pot Version

Although I am more of a pressure cooker kind of person, I do occasionally plan far enough in advance to use my crock pot for a slow cooked dish or meal. Braising a lesser cut of meat is an excellent use of a crock pot. It is amazing to me that you can take a […]

Baked Pork Chops with Rice

My mom would often bake pork chops smothered in canned cream of mushroom soup to keep them moist. Sometimes she would serve them with rice. Although I had not even thought about mom’s mushroom soup pork chops in quite a while, I started craving them. If I made them for my family, my husband would […]
