Lasagna Pasta

Lasagna Pasta 014

I've noticed a couple of things about the romance novels I've been reading lately.... 1. Most of the books I've read so far, involve 2 guys fighting over a girl. I always feel sorry for the guy who ends up not getting the girl. Can't they both just get a long? 2. The people on the book cover look totally older than the age they are in the book. The ones on the cover look like they're in their mid 30's and the ages in the book mentioned are always 18 or 17 years old. 3. The guy who ...

I'm sorry I haven't been posting a lot lately. Next week I'm going on vacation for a whole week and my goal is to post a new recipe each day for you.

Just cook some chicken breasts in a pan. Remove the chicken after it is cooked and sautee the garlic and ginger mixture. To save some time, I always buy the ...

Crock Pot Teriyaki Chicken

teriyaki 004

It's a snow day here! I've been super lazy too.... With snow days comes lazy meals. Lazy as in crock pot meals. If you were really lazy like me, you could just buy a whole bottle of teriyaki sauce at the grocery store and just dump that into the crock pot with some chicken. I almost wish I would have done that too. This sauce wasn't very thick when the chicken broth was added. It cooked down in the crock pot a little but not to the consistency I would have liked it. If I make this again ...

Chipotle inspired Rice Bowls

candybarcheesecake 003

  I was finally able to make it to Chipotle after I've heard my brother talking about it for years. After I told him that I went there, he said to me "Welcome to the real world." The real world is obviously a restaurant where you stuff your face with burritos about the side of your head. It was really good and everything, but I didn't care for the portion sizes. I liked the flavor combinations of everything, it was just too much for me to eat. I made my own Chipotle inspired meal and ...

Weight Watchers – Chicken Ranch Pasta

lounging 014

I love rotisserie chickens! There's a grocery store where I live, and you can get 2 of them for only $10.00. I think that's a steal. I like using them to make easy recipes like this Chicken Ranch Pasta. The chicken is already cooked, so all I had to do was make the sauce and boil the noodles. Super simple. I was really tempted to put this pasta in a casserole dish and make it into a mac and cheese casserole, but the sauce was super yummy I didn't want to wait any longer to eat it. I tried ...

Baked Pasta with Sausage

If you've been experiencing really slow loading times at my website, I apologize. Found out my host limits my bandwith usage since I've been getting so many visitors lately. I tried doing everything they told me, but I think I'm just going to end up switching hosts. I was originally going to make some Italian Sausage Hoagies tonight but I wasn't in the mood for that. I decided to make this Baked pasta recipe from Skinny Taste since we have had some lean chicken sausage in the freezer forever. ...

Chicken Gyros

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

We had Greek food for dinner tonight, which we normally don't have. This brought me back to my pita pizza making days, when I was a Cook's helper at the dining center. That was my first experience ever cooking, when I was in college. I had to help prep a lot of meals in large scale sizes and I'd make tons of pita pizzas. One of the ones I had to make was a Greek  pita pizza. It had chicken, cheese, and a salad mix of red onions, tomatoes, etc on it.  Think, I might try re-making that again. : ...

Tasteless Chicken stock, yet tasty soup

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I made some pretty tasteless chicken stock today. I figured, if there's chicken in soup, I mine as well make some chicken stock to go along with it, right?  The recipe called for no salt, which I think was the main problem. I seasoned everything else in the soup but we thought there was something missing. Maybe it was the parmesan rind? That could have done it. But yes, if you decided to make this chicken stock, add in some salt too it. Maybe one or two teaspoons. The soup was ...
