Easy Stir Fry Sesame Chicken

Stir Fry Sesame Chicken

This recipe was just what I hoped it would be...easy and delicious! This tasted just like a meal I would get from my local Chinese restaurant...but made with simple ingredients from the grocery store. I found this recipe on the McCormick spice website. I tweaked it slightly to give it more sesame I doubled it to make 4 healthy sized portions. I served it over white rice. This yummy meal was done in less than an hour from prep to plate. I'll be making this often!

Kielbasa and Sauerkraut

Kielbasa and Kraut

This is a meal my Mom would occasionally make. I come from very old fashioned, right off the boat, Italian as you can guess, this is not a typical dinner from my childhood. My Mom would sometimes experiment with different ethnic cuisines and I loved it. I guess that's where a get my adventurous side from, when it comes to food. This recipe is so very quick and easy to make and so delicious to eat! I like to serve it with homemade cheddar cheese biscuits to soak up the broth. Even the biscuits are easy to make! I'll include that recipe also...

Low Fat and Fast Chicken and Broccoli Alfredo!

I found this recipe on and I tweaked it slightly. I've been making this recipe for many years!
This is a meal I love to make when I don't have much time to cook! This only takes about 30 minutes to make! And it's so creamy, delicious and filling! The fact that it's low fat is just an extra bonus! You can use any pasta shape you like! I like to use bow ties because my kids like that shape!

Scattered Chicken Tortilla Casserole!

Scattered Chicken Tortilla Casserole!

We love Mexican food in our house, but sometimes I just don't feel like assembling a dozen tacos or burritos! That's why I decided to try this easier way! It tastes just as good but is so much quicker to make and less messy to eat!

Smothered Pork Chops with Onions and Cheddar Grits...and some Bacon Wrapped Potatoes!

I found this recipe on My and drooled over the sound of the title! I love everything about it...pork chops smothered with onions and served with cheddar grits?!?! The ingredients were so simple and this was so easy to make! The only change I made was to cook the onions til they were very dark and caramelized! I also added chopped,  jarred,  jalapeno to the grits! I served this with some bacon wrapped oven roasted potatoes too! Yes, I'm a carbaholic and loved every single bite of this delicious meal!

Perfect Hawaiian Chicken

Perfect Hawaiian Chicken

The first time I ever tried Hawaiian Chicken was at a catered party many, many years ago. It was love at first bite! Since then I was on a journey to find that same delicious meal in restaurants. I would order Hawaiian Chicken whenever I saw it on the menu...but most times I ended up disappointed. The meal was either too sour or too tangy or too sweet. I finally stopped wasting my money on bad Hawaiian Chicken.

Moroccan Chicken Stew

I've been wanting to try a Moroccan recipe since I first received a bottle of 'McCormick Moroccan Seasoning' from the McCormick Company. Well, I finally found this recipe...Moroccan Chicken on After reading some of the comments on that recipe I decided that I would add fresh garlic and a veggie. But then during the cooking process I realized I needed to tweak the technique also.

Crockpot Chicken and Kraut

Crockpot Chicken and Sauerkraut Dinner

This is just so simple to make and so delicious! The chicken and sauerkraut melt in your mouth. The sauerkraut becomes sweet from the dressing but still has a nice tanginess. The juices are perfect for dipping with bread. This is a 'must try' recipe!

Zucchini Alfredo

Zucchini Alfredo
I just love this recipe for so many reasons! It's low fat, creamy, healthy, easy and my kids eat it because they don't realize that there is zucchini in it! This recipe is shredded zucchini in a creamy parmesan/basil sauce!

Chicken Capricciosa

Chicken Capricciosa

This is one of my favorite chicken dishes to order from my local Italian restaurant. Capricciosa means 'fickle' or 'whimsical'...which explains this dish because the breaded and baked chicken cutlet is served warm, but the bruschetta/mozzarella topping is cold. I love that contrast!

Apple and Feta Pan Fried Pizzas

Apple and Feta Pan Fried Pizzas

Eating healthy is part of my assignment this month in the Allrecipes Allstar Brand Ambassador Program. The ambassadors were asked to choose recipes from the My Plate healthy eating recipe collection. That's exactly where I found this pizza recipe! There are so many other recipes to choose from but this one stood out to me because of the combination of ingredients! It sounded so unique and flavorful! And that's exactly what is was! Plus I never thought to pan fry pizza dough! I think I'll be doing that more often!

A Pioneer Woman Recipe!

I found this recipe on the Pioneer Woman's cooking site. I knew I would love it as soon as I saw the title!  Then I tried it and I was right...I loved it! Very easy to make! I tweaked it slightly to make it less fattening and to make the sauce thicker. And I used white wine instead of brandy. I also added parsley for color. I think I'll try it with the brandy next time...and there will be MANY next times...YUM! Using the white wine made it taste VERY similar to chicken picatta, but more creamy and tangy. I'm posting the recipe with my tweaks.

Sweet and Tangy Grilled Chicken

Sweet and Tangy Grilled Chicken
I know it's very cold outside in most places this time of year. As I write this post, here in New York, we actually have over a foot of snow on the ground from the last storm that rolled through. But this recipe is so worth digging out the barbecue and braving the frigid low temps. Yes, I've done that many times for great grilled food!

Look at the bright golden color of this grilled chicken cutlet! That color comes from the

Chili Stroganoff

Chili Stroganoff

I enjoy making other peoples recipes more than trying to create my own! Although sometimes I end up tweaking someone's recipe so much that it becomes a totally different recipe! I call that a 'Super Tweak'...sounds like 'Super Freak' doesn't it? Now try to get that song out of your head!
