Honey Mustard Bacon Chicken Thighs

honey mustard chicken thighs 010

Warning: The chicken thighs are cooked in a pan in the oven. Be careful when taking the pan out, so you don't burn yourself like I did! I used an oven mit first, but when I went to take a picture of it, I forgot the oven mit. Ouch that kind of hurt somewhat, but only for a couple of seconds. Hot pan, hot pan! These chicken thighs are flavored with every persons favorite dippin sauce: honey mustard, and then topped with bacon. No need to dip the chicken in any sauce here. Unless you can find a ...

Thanksgiving Leftovers: Turkey and Cranberry Paninis

black friday sandwich 072

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! On Thursday I ran the Huffin and Stuffin 5 k to burn a couple calories before the Thanksgiving meal. It was -13 below out and I was dressed in 3 layers of clothing. I've never ran in the Winter before and I ended up finishing in exactly 50 minutes. I walked for the most part but tried to run as much as I could. I'm going to be running outside in the Winter a lot this year.  Thank goodness for no wind that day. That would have been awful. We were ...

Spicy Huevos Rancheros

huevos rancheros 012

This was a nice change, rather than my usual hash brown, eggs, and bacon stacks. A crisp corn tortilla, sprayed and baked in the oven instead of frying. Black beans with cumin, and chili powder and then the whole shebang is topped off with a fried egg. Super yummy with some tomato, avocado, and cilantro on top. Ben didn't have the egg with it. Instead, he made tacos with beans, tomatoes and avocado. Men, I tell you. He didn't want to make another fried egg cause the other one was contaminated ...

Lightened Up Beef Stroganoff

lightened beef stragnoff 012

            Beef stroganoff is a child hood favorite dish of mine. My Dad would always make it for us. I don't really remember having too many favorite child hood dishes besides this one and Chicken Cheese Hotdish. He would always use ground beef and often times I see this recipe with cubed beef and mushrooms. Bleh! Mushrooms and me don't get a long, although I do like them in cream of mushroom soup. Probably cause the mushrooms are cut up into tiny little fine pieces an ...

Appled, Bacon, and Gouda Grilled Cheese

applegoudagrilledcheese 020

I've been a Gouda virgin up until today. I can't believe I waited this long to try this cheese! Where have you been all my life?! Gouda cheese was kind of expensive. 6.99 a pound at my grocery store, but I'm glad I bought it.  The cheese harmonizes well with bacon and apple and now I want to try it in mac and cheese. Gouda and  bacon and mac in mac and  cheese. Oh my!   This week, I tried to make my own ham sandwich. On top of that sandwich, I put ham, low fat swiss cheese, a tomato, spi ...

Weight Watcher’s Spaghetti Carbonara

spaghetti carbonara 021

I've been eating a lot of eggs lately with an English muffin. I was getting kind of bored of that, so I changed it up a bit. I can't get enough of English muffins with the nooks and crannies and then a little melted butter on that. Yummmmmm.....   Sometimes, I'll add some bacon on top and cheese to make a breakfast sandwich. Spaghetti Carbonara is almost like a deconstructed version of that sandwich. The noodles are the English muffins that the cheese and egg sticks too, and then the bacon. If ...

Have you ever cooked just a bunch of chicken in a crock pot before? If you haven't done that yet, you should do it one time. The chicken can then be made into ANYTHING like these white chicken enchiladas. I like to shred the chicken but my husband prefers to have it whole. We split it down the middle.
