This has to be one of the fastest and simplest chicken dinners I have ever made. Since we a lot of chicken and turkey, quick fix meals are a blessing. Especially because baseball is right around the corner again! This originally called for regular Minute Rice but I made a few alterations to allow for the ready serve rice. I often judge the yumminess of meals by whether the boys ask for seconds or not! They asked for seconds of this so, success. Read the rest of this entry »
I can’t think of one person that I know who doesn’t love pizza. Seriously, there are not many! I even did a little Facebook poll to see what other people thought. Let us know your answer! to find out! When ever we order it, I tell myself that I am making it “healthier” for us by changing up the normal pie. (Yes, it’s a pie, I was born in Jersey! lol) I order thin crust, light sauce, grilled chicken etc. Now I am sure I am cutting off some calories by ordering it this way but, it is really any healthier?
I was shocked to find out that so many people I know have switched from pork bacon to turkey bacon. I am without a doubt a huge bacon lover so even getting myself to try it was a big ordeal. You can of course taste the difference but it’s really not bad! The boys have actually come to like it too. What I like about it most is knowing there is not all that grease in the pan when it’s done cooking. I know, I know, that’s the best part right?
I am certain this is not an original idea but it was one of those, open the fridge, look in and grab, dinner moments. Really simple and really delicious. I am a big fan of Applegate Naturals bacon for a number of reasons.
It is all natural, no antibiotics used, gluten free, casein free, not preserved, minimally processed, no artificial ingredients and a lot more. I purchase mine at Kroger so there is a very good chance you can find this at your local grocery store. Applegate isn’t just limited to bacon either. They make a wide variety of products from hot dogs to lunch meats! Read the rest of this entry »
Cheesecake is one of my favorite guilty pleasures. I love to make them but I find myself having no control over cutting myself a huge piece and grabbing a tall glass of ice cold milk. I like to make these because not only is it portion control for me but it is also portion control for the boys. These are very easy to make and you can even get the kids involved in this one. We had so much fun making these that we ended up a cookie short because someone ate one. *whistles*
