Roasting a whole chicken is a simple and economical way to prepare a classic, complete meal in just a few steps. I tend to forget about buying a whole bird unless its holidays though tossing one in the oven during the week really Continue reading

Easy Chicken and Rice Turnovers - chicken pot pie pastry puff recipe This Post Brought To You By The UNCLE BEN’S® Brand. I'm pretty lucky to have two little helping hands in the kitchen.

This post brought to you by Sargento Foods, Inc.. All opinions are 100% mine. Classic Sandwich Skewer Recipes | Over the summer Butch and I have been working on being more conscious about our food choices. Since our little guy has a feeding tube, and does not eat, it is quite hard for us to even get excited about sitting down to eat - which, honestly, we do not even take the time to do.
