Fish and Veggies

I Threw it Together Dinner of Fish and Veggies I had 20 minutes and soccer to content with. I opened the freezer and began the treasure hunt. I spotted frozen flounder. Score. I placed it under cold running water for two minutes. Then I had to figure out what to put with it. I came up with tomatoes, red onions, orange peppers, and garlic infused cheese. I served it on a bed of polenta. Voila! The adults topped it with salsa. The kids just ate it topped with the alouette cheese spread and … [Read more...]

Polenta Recipe

I try each week to tackle motherhood, working, co-owning a business and trying to be creative in the kitchen. I have come a long way from thinking you boil the water for 7 minutes then you add the pasta sauce. We all have our strengths and weaknesses. I would have a super picture for you of this great meal but I didn't have the card in my camera as I snapped away.  Yes, I am embarrassed to admit that but I got the family fed. This recipe was submitted by Heather.  This was super yummy and … [Read more...]

  I guess I should share my recipe that my husband insists that I should send into the food network. He says watching all those shows have really improved my technique. I think he just wants me to cook a real meal every night.  I do try something new every week that is a start right? Here is what I did this week. I stole the recipe off the Bag of Frozen Salmon Fillets from Kroger and I made it my own. I look for inspiration everywhere. Set your oven to 400 degrees on … [Read more...]

  I love my slow cooker. I am on the search for great recipes that are easy. I try to read a magazine or two a week. One of my favorites is Family Circle. I decided for my Wednesday cooking adventure I would try their recipe for slow cooker crab and corn chowder. It was super. I would change a couple of things to make my life  easier the next time I make it. I would use frozen corn and I would double the batch. It made enough for two  dinners and one lunch.

What’s for Dinner Wednesday: Once-A-Month cooking saves my sanity

Once –A- Month cooking saves the day! Well in fact it saved the day  twice this week once with Mexican Chili and the other night with Mexican Spicy Salads. They were both hits. I am a crazy person lately and at 4:00 PM I realize soon it will be 5:00 and my nice children will turn into complaining and shrieking messes because they are hungry. It is my job to feed them and save myself from the 5:00 PM freak out. I walked over to the freezer and pulled out 3 bean Mexican Chili. I threw it in a pan … [Read more...]
