Slow Cooker Chicken Fajitas Recipe with Step by Step Photos

Slow Cooker Chicken Fajitas

In the past, every time I've made chicken fajitas at home, the chicken always seems to come out dry. Rather than give up a dish I love because I can't cook the chicken right, I turned to my slow cooker. It never fails me when it comes to keeping meats moist. I'd probably cook every meal in the slow cooker if I could ever get up early enough to go to the store. But now that school is back in session, I'm enjoying my lazy, sleep in week … [Read more...]

Mexican Stuffed Peppers Recipe

Mexican Stuffed Peppers Recipe

I am a compensated “Cans Get You Cooking” ambassador. Now that we're finally getting some cooler evenings, I find myself itching to start using the oven again for meals. One of our long-time favorites is stuffed peppers. It's also a go-to recipe now that I've got an abundance of fresh bell peppers in my backyard garden. I don't like the idea of anything I've grown going to waste. We're very much apart of the 73% of Americans that throw away … [Read more...]

Tyson Project A+™ Program and a Skillet Chicken Lasagna Recipe for Back to School

Skillet Chicken Lasagna Recipe

I was compensated by Tyson Foods to produce this post. School started for our kids this week and with all of the usual duties I have as a mom, I'm also asked to volunteer at my child's school. Unfortunately, many of the volunteer opportunities aren't an option for me with our youngest child still at home. That's doesn't mean I can help in other ways. One of my personal favorites is through fundraising efforts. We always work hard to support our … [Read more...]

National Grilling Month Spicy Mustard Chicken Kebabs

Spicy Mustard Chicken Kebabs Recipe

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Pompeian Olive Oil. Did you know July is National Grilling Month? It shouldn't be a surprise since July is typically one of the hottest months of the year making it the best time to cook outside. In fact, we spend most of the summer months cooking our meals outside on the grill. The biggest problem we face is lack of variety. Our grilled meals all seem to rotate between hamburgers, hot … [Read more...]

Margherita Flatout Flatbread Pizza

Margherita Flatbread Pizza

*I was provided with samples and compensation to share my experience with Flatout Flatbread. If I had to pick the busiest part of my day I'd say it happens around 4pm. That's the time the kids have gotten home from school, put away their backpacks and start rummaging through the kitchen for an afternoon snack. It also happens to be the same time I'm usually working on getting the house straightened up and dinner planned. So after a few tugs on … [Read more...]

Smokey Mesquite BBQ Chicken n Bacon Bread with #KraftFreshTake

Smokey Mesquite BBQ Chicken Bread

Last month I shared a quick Smokey Mesquite BBQ Meatball Sliders recipe using Kraft Fresh Takes and this month I got a brand new challenge. This time I was asked to make a meal in under 30 minutes using only 4 ingredients with the Kraft Smokey Mesquite BBQ Fresh Take variety. This was one challenge I had to rack my brain a bit to figure out but after thinking about our usual meals I found a way to turn a family favorite that often takes an … [Read more...]

Slow Cooker Chicken Philly Sandwiches Recipe

Slow Cooker Chicken Philly Sandwich

Whenever the kids drag me out to the mall we always stop at a grilled sub place in the food court. Aside from Auntie Anne's, it's the only place in there that makes the trip worth it for me. They have a grilled Chicken Philly sub that I love! I've even made my own Chicken Philly at home a few times. But this past weekend I knew we were going to be running around and coming home to cook would be the last thing on my mind.   So I got this … [Read more...]

Italian Herb Grilled BLT Sandwich Recipe

Italian Herb Grilled BLT Sandwich Recipe

Last week I took an hour out of my laundry and child chasing duties to sit in on a webinar with the folks at Land O Lakes Kitchen and some wonderful food bloggers. The topic was 2013 Food Trends. As someone that loves being in the kitchen more than anywhere else in the house, this really caught my interest. I love trying new foods, cooking techniques and even putting a twist on old favorites. So it was really interesting to hear from fellow food … [Read more...]
