One Pot Italian Chicken Pasta
One Pot meals have become quite the sensation on the web these days. I have fallen in love with them myself. I’ve been making this meal for a while now and my family loves it. All the ingredients go into the pot at once and dinner is ready in about 20 minutes. I doesn’t get much better than that!
The beauty of these meals is how easy and versatile they are. If you need to feed more people, you just add more pasta and broth. If you don’t like an ingredient, just swap it out for one you do.
This Italian Turkey Meatloaf is so flavorful and moist. A wonderful blend of turkey, spinach, Mozzarella cheese and Italian spices. The homemade marinara sauce that tops it really makes the whole thing sing.
The first time I ate Thai Chicken Pizza was at my friend Barbara’s house. She made it for a big group of hungry teenagers. They devoured it! Our family has declared it a favorite meal. I have to admit it has become my favorite pizza ever.
You can purchase a premade pizza crust or make your own. I personally like the pizza dough recipe found here on Mel’s Kitchen Cafe.
It does take a few extra steps, but oh it is so worth it! I like to bake the chicken and cut up the veggies up to a day ahead to save time when making this pizza.
Try it…you will like it.
Butter Cream Frosting
This Butter Cream Frosting really helps top off my favorite Cinnamon Rolls. It’s a great base recipe too. You can easily add a few extra ingredients to make chocolate, lemon, orange, or even peanut butter. I like to use the real vanilla extract. It really gives it a lovely flavor.
I love these cute memory storage boxes. They are so convenient to hide things away and organize. I love all the fun colors and designs they come in. There are plain ones too if you want a look of clean uniformity.
I already store pencils, book covers, and photos in them.
I went into my Michael’s craft looking for a storage solution for my scrabble tiles. I found these on a one day sale (Today is Thursday July 17, 2014) priced at just 6 boxes for $10. That only makes them $1.67 a piece!! I bought six and may be headed back for more.
I love sharing good deals!
Cafe Rio Taco Salad
Cafe Rio Taco Salad……Oh so good!
My good friend Janelle gave me this recipe a while ago and I kept forgetting to take a picture so I could share it with you. It is one of our all time favorites.
Do you love the taste of S’mores, but not the hassle of the campfire?
You will love these cookies!
Chicken Salad Sandwiches. It’s time for light lunches and nicer weather.
Winter has held on far too long this year.
We served these on mini-croissants at a Women’s Conference at our church recently. About 150 women attended. We had a great time together and enjoyed munching on these lovely sandwiches.
Chicken Salad Sandwiches with a Hint of Lime
These are easy to put together and look so nice. My boys like them made on Hawaiian rolls too. The recipe makes 5 cups of chicken salad. The size of roll you serve it on with determine how many servings you will get.
Today has been Organizing the Games day at my house.
Do you ever have one of those days where you start cleaning one area and putting things away leads you to another area that consumes at least an hour of your time? That is what happened to me today. I started clearing off the dining table and ended up completely reorganizing the games. It wasn’t on my list, but I just had to finish it.
I decided to add it to my list just so I could cross it off 🙂 .
Our family enjoys playing board games. Every Christmas we get one or two new ones. Dominion and Tsuro are new to us this year. While it is great to have so many to choose from, organizing and storing them all is a bit of a challenge.
I had them all organized when I made this Game Organizing post. We’ve added a few since then, and I decided I would rather store them out of view.
Organizing Board Games
Greetings from the long lost blogger 🙂
It has been REALLY cold here in Michigan. Last week we were down to -25 with the wind chill. It’s been a really strange Fall and Winter so far. We had a wind storm that whipped through the area leaving hundreds of downed trees and power lines. We lost power for 3 days, but thankfully didn’t have any structural damage. We’ve had a LOT of snow and ice. The kids have had school cancelled more times than has been allotted for the whole year.
Today, however it is a balmy 33 degrees!
We’ve eaten a lot of our favorite recipes lately without much experimenting with new ones. The one I have to share with you today has become an instant favorite with the whole family. It is easy to make and uses ingredients I always have on hand. Give it a try and come back to let me know what you think!
I love the little orzo pasta. In this recipe it makes a delicious side dish. It can also be used in soups, casseroles, etc. It cooks up fast and is a great alternative to rice.
