Butternut Squash, Yam & Chicken Soup

Butternut Squash, Yam and Chicken Soup

Now that fall is here, I think it’s time for a soup recipe.  I had some leftover chicken and fresh thyme from the Roast Chicken recipe I posted recently. There’s always an ample supply of butternut squash and yams this time of year, so I added those ingredients to the soup as well. I threw a few […]

Chicken and Mango Flatbread #Pulocuisine

CHicken and Mango Flatbread

You may recognize this flatbread, because I gave you a glimpse of it in my post about the Get Cooking Challenge, where I mentioned that I got a new toaster oven. This flatbread – or pizza, or whatever you want to call it – was one of the first things I tried in it. Wow, was it ever […]

Asian Chicken Drumsticks

Asian Chicken Drumsticks

I’m a frugal grocery shopper, so when I see chicken drumsticks on sale, I grab a lot of them. They’re much cheaper than most other parts of the chicken, but can be just as tasty. I usually just sprinkle a little seasoning salt on them and bake them, but that gets pretty boring after a while. When I saw a […]

Chicken Caesar Sliders

Chicken Caesar Sliders for an easy summer supper

  Maybe it’s the heat, or the lack of routine, or the exhausting task of keeping the kids occupied all day (or probably a combination of all three!), but whatever the reason, there are a lot of times when I don’t feel like cooking much in the summer.  I either prepare meals earlier in the day while […]

Mexican Chicken and Corn {Lettuce Wraps or Tacos}

Mexican Chicken & Corn. Use it for lettuce wraps or taco filling.

  I hate wasting good leftovers, so I’m always looking for creative ways to turn leftover food into something new and delicious. In my last post, you saw how I made corn on the cob in the oven (yum!).  Now here’s a great recipe idea to use up any leftover corn you may have.  If you also baked […]

Simple Honey Mustard Chicken


Lately I’ve been gravitating towards simple recipes with not too many ingredients. It’s true that you don’t need a long list of ingredients with complicated directions to make a delicious meal that everyone will love. In fact, my family tends to like simple and straightforward meals the best, and this honey mustard chicken is about as uncomplicated as it […]

Chicken Pot Pie {No Condensed Soup}


A few years back I posted a recipe for Lazy Chicken Pot Pie. It was a really simple and tasty dinner, but the one thing that always bugged me about it was that it used condensed cream of mushroom soup. Condensed soups are full of sodium and they’re so easy to substitute “cream of…soup” with […]

Chicken and Spinach Taquitos


As you may have guessed by my lack of blog posts lately, this month has been crazy busy so far.  The boys were both born in September, and now that they’re older and have their own sets of friends, they want their own separate birthday parties. My family also wanted to celebrate their birthdays with […]

Pesto Chicken Kabobs


Kabobs are one of my favourite things to grill on the barbecue. They’re simple to make, they taste delicious, and they look beautiful too. They’re the perfect thing to serve when company comes over on a summer evening. THE WHINE CRITICS Again with the so-so gesture! This time Cole said it was because he liked […]
