OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

CONTEST OVER! CONGRATS TO Alyce Poalillo #2196!! *I am working with Fisher to share Chef Alex Guarnaschelli’s recipes and create my own original recipe using Fisher Nuts and tools they provided. However, my opinions are entirely my own and I have not been paid to publish positive comments. I love finding new ways to cook food. My kids are super picky eaters and getting them to eat something is quite a chore at times. I have to sneak in healthy veggies, because they don't usually eat as much veggies as they need to be. I was sent a really fun cooking package from Fisher Nuts to create a fun and healthy meal, for my family. I got down to business and created something last night, that my whole family ate and LOVED. They cleaned their plates!!! I was HAPPY. I made a tater tot casserole with sliced almonds from Fisher Nuts! Yep, the almonds were sooo good in this dish! Who would have thought, right?? Recipe Time!! 4.4 from 9 reviews Print Tater Tot Casserole … [Read more...]

Hillshire Farm Grilled Chicken Breast Pasta Recipe (Review)

GrilledChicken_Italian_Style_Chicken_Breast

During the summer I tend to keep cooking to a minimum around here. We have, however, been super lucky with our weather being that it has been sooo rainy, overcast and quite chilly! Our summer has not even started yet and it is July now! I get irritated, but then I look at all you lovelies that live elsewhere in the country, and I think, maybe I should not complain about our weather after all. Those temps scare me!!!! Anyways, getting back to the no cooking during the summer months... I try to make things that are easy and require little or no cooking. Ya, I am a bit lazy during the Summer :) I have tried (many times mind you all..) Hillshire Farm Grilled Chicken Breast and it is a regular ingredient in my pastas, salads and other dishes. Why? Because it is already cooked/prepared and I can then just add it to my meals!! See, no cooking and a yummy meal is born :) One dish that I ABSOLUTELY love (and yes, my mouth is watering as I type this) is my easy pasta dish. Oh my … [Read more...]

Stove Top Everyday Stuffing Mix & Easy Chicken Bake Recipe

Stove Top Stuffing Logo

I know you have tried the Stove Top stuffing, right?  It is really easy to make and really delicious. Growing up my mom always made Stove Top Stuffing with all of our Thanksgiving and  Christmas meals. It was a tradition, in a way.   I now feed Stove Top to my family too. I love how easy it is to mix up and in a few minutes, you have delicious stuffing. You can make it their way or you can step it up a bit and add your own ingredients to make it YOURS. In the past two weeks, since receiving my samples of Stove Top, I have gone through 1 1/2 of the containers I received! I received 3, just so you all know :) I have made delicious whole chickens with the Stove Top and steamed veggies and rice. My family loves homemade meals and adding the Stove Top really fits into the homemade meal theme. Stove Top everyday stuffing mix is available in a convenient resealable canister, which is so nice! Are you tired of the same old potatoes as the side dish for your meals? Ya, me too! The  … [Read more...]
