Honey Sesame Chicken

Do you ever fall into the “dinner rut” at your house?  You make and eat the same 5 meals over and over and over again? Yeah…we fall into this rut quite often at our hose. {I bet my 5 meals are similar to your 5 meals.} Well, if you’re in your dinner rut again, try […]

Zesty Yams

Since my last 2 posts have both been about yams, I think it is safe to assume that I am a little “yam crazy” right now. And why not?  They are so delicious, and I love playing with new ways to flavor/season them. This new one is like a complete opposite from the sweet tasting […]

Chicken Cordon Bleu Recipe

I tried this Chicken Cordon Bleu recipe a couple of weeks ago with my own family and with 2 of my clients/friends.  Thumbs up all around!  But really…who doesn’t love melted cheese and ham wrapped in a seasoned breaded chicken? Um. We all do. Serve with rice and a roasted veggie, and you have yourself a winner!

Chicken Corn Chowder

Homemade Tomato Soup and Grilled Cheese

As soon as it turns cold in Utah (which is always sooner than I'm ready for), I declare it tomato soup and grilled cheese sandwich weather! There is nothing better than sitting in front of the fireplace, snuggled in a blanket, [...]

Roasted Garlic Brussels Sprouts

If you would have told me ten years ago that I would be willingly eating AND enjoying brussels sprouts, I would have been peeing my pants from laughing so hard.  Seriously. Roasted Brussels sprouts were one of those foods I said I didn't like when in reality I hadn't even tasted them (anyone else do that?) Well, I am thoroughly enjoying my sprouts, [...]

Turkey Muffins

Recipe inspiration:  Jamie Eason and a recipe from my sweet coach, Sandy. Yes, yes, I know….”turkey” and “muffins” should NOT be used together. I get it. It’s like taco ice cream or meatloaf cookies. Gross. But believe me, these grab-n-go muffins are the real deal!  They are going down as one of my favorite lunches. […]
