Bangers and Mash

That’s right, my British buds; last night’s Green Chef meal was bangers and mash!  My sweet husband cooked it.  As always, I was elated to have a night off from the kitchen! Our last Green Chef menu for the week is a Tuna Melt sandwich and I made Tuna Toasties for lunch today!  Really?  I’ve… Read More Bangers and Mash

Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs

Since my son watched the movie “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs”, he has been obsessed with meatballs.  The first time I took him out to lunch and ordered spaghetti with meatballs, out came a plate of spaghetti with one giant meatball on top.  As soon as it was placed before him, he yelled “MEATBAAAAAALL”!… Read More Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs

How to Make a One-Pot Dinner You Won’t Forget…

This is a recipe that is a bit sentimental to me.  I haven’t seen or tasted it since the first meal Mike made for me.  I have a theory that any man who offers to cook for you will always make spaghetti.  Am I right or am I right, girls?  He didn’t; maybe that contributed to… Read More How to Make a One-Pot Dinner You Won’t Forget…

Funny Story About Pho

Pronounced “fuh”.  Fuhnny, huh?  The first time I ever had it, I wanted to try the full deal.  No Americanizing for me, please.  I want to experience the taste of the Vietnamese!  So, when “Pho” opened on the beach (no need to question what’s being served here), I wanted to order the authentic pho with… Read More Funny Story About Pho

Steaks and Shambles

Here we were at dinner-making hour and all the kids claimed supreme boredom and couldn’t seem to entertain themselves.  I reluctantly suggested a fort. Out came all the blankets in the house, pillows and dining chairs.  Along with the craft project for Mimi’s birthday,  my house was left in shambles and the fun lasted a… Read More Steaks and Shambles

Pick Your Battles…

One of the nicest things anyone did for me after I had Andrew was make my family a meal.  It is so overwhelming to bring a tiny, helpless baby home from the hospital.  I felt like I couldn’t get anything done!  It’s especially difficult when you have other little mouths to feed!! My friend, Heather,… Read More Pick Your Battles…

What’s for Dinner

My friends often ask me what I cook to get ideas for home cooked meals or need ideas for including more vegetables. I’m going to try to post my dinner meals daily so, here’s what’s cooking tonight: Crockpot Lemon Garlic Chicken (I’m using boneless thighs but, chicken breasts are a lighter option and will be… Read More What’s for Dinner
