Product Review: Oscar Mayer Selects Turkey Hot Dogs

Sunday, December 30th, 2012

We picked up some Oscar Mayer Selects Turkey Dogs at the store yesterday, looking for a healthier but still tasty option to satisfy a hot dog craving. We enjoyed some of the other products in the Selects line, and were hopeful for these. We heated some up for lunch and ...

Apple Cranberry Turkey Pasta

Sunday, November 25th, 2012

This very odd sounding pasta was surprisingly good. My husband thought it was outstanding. :-D I'm not sure where the inspiration for this came from; it was just Shaun and me punting in the kitchen and ending up with something interesting and good. The sweet and ...

Homemade Chicken Noodles

Saturday, October 13th, 2012

In celebration of Shaun passing the bar (hurrah! ), we made homemade chicken noodles today. This is something we don't make very often, as it's a huge batch, and not particularly healthy, but it is oh so good, and worthy of celebrating Shaun's accomplishment. We're ...

Teriyaki Glazed Chicken Thighs

Thursday, October 4th, 2012

Last night, I baked up some chicken thighs in a bit of soy sauce then brushed them with my teriyaki sauce for the last 10 minutes or so of cooking to get a nice glaze. I served these with some steamed broccoli, steamed jasmine rice, and stir fried savoy ...

Chicken, Zucchini, and Mushrooms in a White Wine Sauce

Thursday, September 27th, 2012

This is a take on my chicken skillets, which turned out particularly well, so I'm documenting what I did in hopes of being able to repeat it. ;-) I seasoned the chicken with my favorite Santa Maria seasoning and browned it up on both sides in some ...

Skabetti Sauce

Friday, September 21st, 2012

I've blogged this recipe before, but this is a slightly tweaked version, with ground turkey and a smaller batch. It's just about as good, and a delicious not-quite-fall meal. :-) Here's what I said about it before: This hearty recipe is handed down to me from my mother ...

Chicken Burritos

Friday, August 3rd, 2012

I made my usual beef and bean burritos with ground chicken, and it turned out quite well. The lighter meat worked quite nicely with the spices.

Oven Baked Jambalaya

Tuesday, July 3rd, 2012

This recipe is inspired by one my friend Mary makes all the time. It's easy and less finicky than a traditional stovetop jambalaya. This was a great dinner for a drizzly day. :-) Oven Baked Jambalaya Serves 8 4 links chicken Italian sausage, about 12 oz 1 tbsp butter 1 tbsp ...

Orange and Soy Glazed Chicken Thighs

Wednesday, June 6th, 2012

A different take on orange glazed chicken - this one from Fine Cooking. This recipe has an Asian spin, and was much better than last week's attempt at orange glazed chicken. I upped the veggies as always, as well as increasing the orange zest, and served this with some ...

Sticky Orange Glazed Chicken Thighs

Monday, May 28th, 2012

Tonight's dinner came from the brand new June 2012 issue of Everyday Food. We thought this was okay, but probably not worth making again. The ketchup overwhelmed the orange flavor. This might be perfect for you, though, so here it is! Sticky Orange Glazed Chicken Thighs Serves 4 8 bone-in ...
