    Really Easy Oven Roast Chicken

    Really Easy Oven Roast Chicken Chicken is a staple in our house. We eat it in so many things and so many ways that we always have it on hand. I usually have boneless skinless breasts and thighs as well as bone in thighs in my freezer along with bags of cooked shredded chicken. I’ll let you in on a little secret, I get my chicken through Zaycon when they deliver to our community. It is excellent quality and you can’t beat the price. *Unfortunately Zaycon is no longer an option for Chicken.

    Healthy Buffalo Cauliflower Bites

    Two Southern Sweeties Healthy Buffalo Cauliflower Bites Have y’all seen how Cauliflower has become the new go to for healthy eating? There are recipes for everything cauliflower… Honey Garlic Baked, Parmesan Roasted, General Tso’s, Riced, Mashed and of course Buffalo.

    Southwest Stuffed Spaghetti Squash

    Southwest Stuffed Spaghetti Squash A good friend of mine, Eileen, rarely eats meat. She started this way of eating after her daughter became a Pescatarian. Someone who is a Pescatarian does not eat meant but does eat fish. Well anyways, she is a huge “foodie” just as I am. We are always looking for new recipes and trying them out. Do you have any idea how hard it is to do that with someone that doesn’t eat meat? Ha Ha!! I found a recipe recently that sounded really good and reminded me of both Eileen and her daughter. I figured I would give it a try as Tom is always…

    This easy baked brown rice is a staple that everyone should have in your refrigerator. Ok, I admit it, I am a carb fanatic!!! I have been trying to eat a bit healthier and these past several years, I just haven’t been able to wrap my tongue around “brown rice” …UNTIL NOW!!! This is very flavorful and almost tastes like white rice. It works well with everything, including eating it plain right out of a bowl (one of my favorite ways, truth be told. When you keep a pan of this in the fridge you can easily add it to a soup or a stew. It is also great to warm…

Well yesterday morning I came across a BIG ham bone in the freezer and a large bag of pinto beans in the pantry. I don’t know about you, but that was seemed like a sign from someone that I was supposed to make a big pot…

    Rockin Red Beans and Rice

    Red beans and rice, originated in Louisiana and in the old South, was typically made on Monday’s. This is because on Sunday there was usually a big supper after church and it usually included ham or beef which gave left over bones and a bit of meat. Monday was typically wash day. Of course, back then they didn’t have washing machines so washing clothes took a great deal of time between using a washboard and tub, then ringing the clothes and finally hanging them. Supper needed to be something that didn’t take a great deal of attention, hence, Red Beans & Rice! I know these days we don’t have to…
