Bacon Wrapped Shrimp {& Heinz Ketchup Care Package FLASH Giveaway}

  Let me tell you a story about these barbecue shrimp. Shortly before spring break our junior year at Carroll College, my husband proposed over a picnic with Chinese food in my dorm room (we had a freak snow storm that day so the outdoor picnic he'd planned was a bust, but that's a story for another day). I said yes, I guess you…

Buffalo Chicken Lasagna

  My family loves all things Buffalo Chicken, especially this Buffalo Chicken Lasagna. I have seen chicken wing pasta recipes out there, but they bugged me. Carrots?! Tomato Sauce!? Peppers?! All tasty, but not with buffalo chicken, not so much. I couldn't even bring myself to add celery into the mix, although I did serve it on the…

Stuffed Buffalo Chicken Wing BItes

Buffalo Wing Bites

Recipes for stuffed pizza rolls, like these chicken-bacon ones, seem to be floating around. I don't think I have found a flavor combination that I haven't liked, but I haven't seen one like my Buffalo Wing Bites out there. Buffalo Wing anything is my hubbys favorite (thank goodness no one has put those flavors into dessert yet), and so I…

Chicken Cesar Salad Pizza

Chicken Cesar Salad Pizza

This Chicken Cesar Salad Pizza recipe is one of my favorite summer-time recipes. It's like salad and bread sticks all in one. I first came across a recipe like this at a friends, party when we lived in Helena, Montana and have since recreated the recipe so I could make it at will. The crust tastes amazing and us made from Rhodes' frozen…

Chicken Fried Rice

Let's face it; some days we need meals that are quick and easy to prepare. This is one of those kind of recipes! It is quick, simple, and one of Mister Crazy's favorites! It starts with a rotesserie chicken - the one you pick up from the deli on your way home (although, I supppose any leftover chicken would work). Add a little rice and…

Chili Meat

I have been working on getting this recipe posted for quite some time now. It is my husband's favorite meal, hands down and I have been promising it to a friend for just about forever! This ones for you, Melissa! The problem getting it posted was that in the past, Momma Daisy usually made it, and it was one of those recipes that she just…

Curried Kabobs

Not only are these kabobs one of my very favorite summer recipes, they take me back to childhood summers! Momma Daisy made these and I always thought they were such a treat! Besides being served on a stick (which makes everything a little more yummy), they are made with marinated beef, pineapple, green peppers, red onions, mushrooms, and…

Easy Sweet and Sour Chicken

Chinese food has a special place in my kitchen. It sounds a little bit corny, but just listen. If the Mr. had to choose only one food to live on for the rest of his life, it would be something Chinese. Not only is it his very favorite, he actually proposed over a Chinese picnic. Awwwww, sweet, huh? Now, do you see why it might be so near…

Thanksgiving Sandwiches

Easy Thanksgiving Leftover Sliders

I've got to say I like them even better - and for lots of reasons. Since I use these rolls, it takes only a matter of seconds to start my…

Delicious Grilled Mini Pizzas

Grilled Mini Pizzas

I love pizza and these new grilled mini pizzas are no exception. I'm not sure about you, but we are only entering our third week of summer and there are already some days I try to keep the oven off to keep the house cooler. That's one reason these pizzas are a win - no oven! I can also tell you that while some days I do actually enjoy…

Pineapple Chicken Fajitas

While there is still time to fire up those grills, I thought I might share one of my most requested recipes for Pineapple Chicken Fajitas!!!  This is one of my husband's most favorite meals ever.

Sesame Ginger Beef Skewers

 These beef skewers are one of my family's very favorite meals. My son has been begging for "meat-on-a-stick" as he calls it. Mother Nature broke out the sunshine Saturday, so I promised I would make them on Sunday after I did the shopping~ only to grill in a spring blizzard on Sunday. I share this recipe today with hopes that somewhere…

Slow Cooker Potato Corn Chowder

We love this slow cooker Potato Corn Chowder. Our life gets crazy sometimes, just like I'm betting yours does too. Violin. Basketball. Soccer. Story Time. Tumbling. Board Meetings. Coaching. As most families bounce from activity to activity, mine is doing the same thing and I'm convinced my sole purpose as a mother is really as a taxi…

Slow Cooker Ratatouille

Slow Cooker Ratatouille

I cannot tell you how much I love this Slow Cooker Ratatouille! There is something about it that I find comforting and even nostalgic, somewhat like the scene from Disney's Movie, Ratatouille, where the food critic (Anton Ego) flashes back to his childhood when his mom served him her delectable vegetable stew. My mom also made…
