Garlic and Herb Roasted Chicken

If you read my post a long, long time ago about cornish game hens, this is pretty much the exact same recipe, except with a regular sized chicken.  I made three of these puppies for our Mother’s Day celebration this year, and everyone just loved it!  The chicken really absorbs the flavors of the garlic, […]

Tomato Soup with Pesto Grilled Cheese Croutons

Happy 2013!  I’d love to give some beautiful philosophical  discourse, ticking off all of the memorable events of 2012 and wishing everyone all the happiness and success they desire in 2013, but I’m just not good at that stuff.  I’ll just say that though 2012 had its ups and downs, all in all we feel […]

Cheesy Chicken in Poblano Sauce

I saw this recipe, as you might have guessed, on Rachael Ray.  I originally saved it for my husband because he loves peppers and spicy food.  Well, it actually wasn’t that spicy – I was totally able to tolerate the heat level.  We both absolutely loved this and will definitely be making it again.  I […]

Rice with an Attitude

The other day, I planned to make Spicy Tilapia with Pineapple Salsa.  I asked Tim what he wanted to go with it, and he said rice.  I didn’t want to use a preflavored box of rice because it’s so easy to make your own, and that way you can control the ingredients and flavor, so […]

Whole Grain Cous Cous with Spring Vegetables

I love cous cous as a side dish.  It’s something different from rice or potatoes, and it’s super easy to make.  It’s also very versatile.  You can flavor it many different ways by adding in different herbs, spices, and veggies.  I like to buy plain cous cous, whole grain or wheat if available, cook it in […]

Everything But the Kitchen Sink Vegetable Soup

It’s soup time again!  I told you I’ve been obsessed with soup this year.  In my previous Salsa Stoup post, I mentioned a soup chock full of vegetables with pesto in it.  Well, wait no more.  As promised, here is the veggie soup recipe.  It’s extremely healthy because it’s basically all veggies with some herbs […]
