Getting in Shape for Summer with Tyson Grilled & Ready: Grilled Chicken & Berry Salad

As I’ve mentioned in the past, one of my biggest struggles as a mom is planning a weekly menu that’s healthy, easy AND affordable. Finding meals that fit all three of those criteria is a challenge, but it’s one of those challenges I kind of enjoy. (Plus it gives me a good excuse to surf […]

My Menu Needs a Fresh Take: Jalapeño Popper Chicken Recipe

When we had grilled cheese and soup the other night for the fourth time in as many weeks, I knew it was time to rethink our long-term dinner menu. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t mind grilled cheese and tomato soup, it’s just that I prefer a little more variety in my meals. The only […]

Skinny Sweet & Sour Chicken Recipe

When I cook I like to make recipes as simple as possible. With a rambunctious 2-year-old, a slobbery dog and an always hungry husband, I’m one busy momma. I don’t have time to cook gourmet meals that include a lot of steps. But I also want those meals to be healthy – two requirements that […]

Meals shipped right to your door? A girl could get used to that!

As any busy mom will tell you, planning a weekly menu that’s A) varied, B) simple and C) relatively healthy is – for lack of a better word – a pain in the ass. If only there were a way to have pre-measured, fresh dinner ingredients shipped to my house with handy little recipe cards […]

Chicken Pizzaiola Recipe #CookClassico

Like I said before, I am a quasi-clean eater and a stickler for healthy ingredients. This Valentine’s Day was no different. Challenged to come up with a delicious Valentine’s Day dinner – one that would please everyone and yet wouldn’t have me slaving in the kitchen for hours – this Chicken Pizzaiola recipe was the […]

Healthy & Easy Chicken Pot Pie Recipe

I’ve been trying to make a healthier, low-calorie chicken pot pie recipe for a while. This one is perfect! There’s no butter or canned  “cream of anything” soup. Plus I used whole wheat flour and 2% milk to make it even lighter. The chicken is incredibly juicy, the vegetables are perfectly tender and the light […]

Healthy Bean and Cheese Burrito Recipe

There isn’t any food I love more than Mexican food (except maybe pizza). I grew up on it, so it’s a huge comfort food for me. Apparently, though, my taco recipe is a lot different than most. I make tacos like my mom and my grandma – no spices. Just refried beans and hamburger. Fry […]

Heat Up Your Valentine’s Day with Spicy Chicken Tacos

I’m not a chef, not by any means. For this reason, I rely heavily on my slower cooker to turn a few ingredients into a tasty meal without setting off any smoke alarms. I simply throw the stuff in at lunch and let it do its thing. So simple. There are three rules that recipes […]

Giving Thanks for I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter!

Here I am in my late twenties (okay fine, early thirties) and I have yet to cook a Thanksgiving dinner. So far, that duty has always been proudly claimed by my mother. When will the turkey torch be passed to me? I’m not sure, but for now I’m perfectly happy with my “dessert and a […]

Chicken in Mustard Sauce

Chicken is such a versatile ingredient and it’s so healthy, which is why a lot of my recipes include it. This chicken in mustard sauce recipe in particular is so delicious, tangy and juicy. I don’t usually make sauces for meats and vegetables because they’re often loaded with calories, but this one is relatively healthy. […]
