    Tiny House Cooking Cookbook:Chicken Cacciatore

    Have you seen those tiny houses that are becoming increasingly popular? HGTV has series on tiny houses too. I think they look really cool and cute, but I could never live in one. I am not a minimalist at all and could never survive in one! A few weeks ago I was gifted a copy of the Tiny House Cooking cookbook. You don’t have to live in a tiny house to use these recipes obviously, but they’re so great because all the recipes use as few cooking utensils and vessels as possible. I believe all the recipes are for 2 people as well so it’s great for if you’re cooking for…

    Italian Chicken – 2 Ways

    I’ve got 3 days of work left to the school year and the stress levels are high with trying to get everything done and packed up. Tonight is graduation for the seniors and with that comes more anxiety as I’m set to host once again this year. Once I’m there and get started with the show I’m usually fine but just the thought of it (mainly speaking into the microphone) always makes me nervous! I’ll be sharing my graduation outfit on here next week! In the meantime, I’ve got a quick food post for you today. Making chicken by marinating it in Italian dressing is nothing new at all. Many…

  • 1-Pot Chicken & Potatoes

    1-Pot Chicken, Olives, & Potatoes

    I really enjoy 1-pot meals because it’s so convenient to create a whole meal using 1 main pot. This 1-Pot Chicken with Olives & Potatoes is a recipe from the Cooking Channel by Tia Mowry. I followed the recipe with no adjustments so I’ll just be posting pictures and not the whole recipe so if you want to check out the recipe then click here! Chicken, olives, and potatoes + yummy spices? You can’t go wrong! Let me know if you try this!

    Dorito Chicken Tenders

    I love to share food/recipes for things I’ve been making for a long time as well as things that are first times for me. Usually I post things that turned out well or at least well enough for a first time. Today I’m sharing Dorito Chicken Tenders which I found multiple posts for on Pinterest. Unfortunately, this was one of those recipes that I’m not sure I’ll make again. It’s not that it tasted bad – it was completely edible and I did eat it. But it didn’t wow me although perhaps if I make it again I would jazz it up some more. In any case, I thought about skipping…

  • Spinach & Mushroom Stuffed Chicken

    Spinach & Mushroom Stuffed Chicken

    How’s everyone’s week going so far? I can’t believe it’s already Thursday! I’m trying to savor this last 1+ week before I go back to work. I have a food post for you all today and I filmed it as well for a short less than 2 minute video! Of course, I also have some pictures for you to walk you through this easy dish. I diced some tomatoes, cut the spinach into smaller pieces, and cooked and cut up the mushrooms ahead of time. Put the ingredients inside the chicken breasts and be careful not to overstuff them because then it will be hard to close them up. Dust…

  • Rustic Chicken

    Rustic Chicken

    Before I get into summer food posts, which will consist of quicker, lightweight, and/or refreshing foods, I have one last hearty food post for you (at least for a little while). This Rustic Chicken is not new to me and it’s inspired from something I saw on the Food Network years ago but I can’t remember now who’s recipe it is! First, I brown the chicken thighs and boil some potatoes. Then, I put the chicken, potatoes that I either half or quarter depending on the size, grape tomatoes, oil, oregano, red wine vinegar, salt and pepper in a roasting pan. Cook in the oven for about 40 mins-1 hour at 375…

    Sriracha Chicken

    Love Sriracha sauce. Love chicken. Put them together and it’s bound to be good right? This recipe is very easy to do and I don’t have measurements for you, but you can find similar recipes all over the Internet or you could just play around with the recipe to make it to your liking. All you need is Sriracha (duh), Chinese Five Spice, lime juice, garlic, and hoisin sauce for the marinade and chicken thighs. Mix the ingredients together and then coat the chicken. Then, I transferred the chicken to a foil lined baking sheet and put it in the oven. Halfway through the cooking time, I flipped the chicken…

    Tuscan Chicken Stew

    A few weeks ago I wrote about breaking out the slow cooker for the chillier weather. That was for my Chicken Tortilla Soup post — this time around, I tried my hand at a Tuscan Chicken Stew. I was looking for slow cooker recipes and came across this one from Sweet Peas & Saffron and it looked pretty straight forward, but I did change the recipe up a little bit. I cut up all the vegetables that had to go into the slow cooker. The recipe calls for baby potatoes, but I used red skin potatoes and cut them in quarters. The original recipe has you put the raw chicken right into the…

    Chicken Tortilla Soup

    Now that it’s getting cooler, it’s time to take out the slow cooker. For my first slow cooker meal of the season, I made chicken tortilla soup. This was my first time making it, but it’s been on my “to-make” list for a while because I love ordering it when I’m out. I love slow cooker recipes, because they are usually fairly straight forward and once you pop all the ingredients in you can leave it for hours (for the most part) while you do other things. The recipe I used was from All Recipes. For the most part, I stuck with the original recipe, but did make a few…
