Chili Lime Roasted Corn

I can walk into any grocery store and immediately I’m reminded that it’s summer.  All I see is charcoal, watermelon, and mustard as I pass the first few end caps and displays.  Heading over to the produce section, I am hit with all fresh fruits and veggies that are available only when it’s the peak…

Roasted Lemon Thyme Chicken and Vegetables

Growing up I was a picky child, but like any kid, I was expected to eat anything that was put in front of me.  I often didn’t care for whatever the meal was but I put on my big girl pants and ate it all up, thankful that we had food on our plates.  One…

Foil Pack Rosemary Chicken

As the summer starts to wind down, fall is just around the corner.  That means less barbecuing and more time in the kitchen with the oven and Crock Pots.  That also means kids are going back to school and time is precious between getting home and bed time.  Learning to balance your time in the…

Baked Spaghetti Squash

A few months ago I decided that I was going to take the scary leap into learning how to bake this new fandangled thing called a spaghetti squash.  It has been around for a few years and while I know that Zach doesn’t like squash, I wanted to finally give it a try.  (Post recipe…

Baked Taco Salad Shells

If anyone has EVER read this blog, you should all know how much I love Mexican food!  And let me tell you, taco salads are no exception!  (although I make mine more on the unhealthy side versus a REAL taco SALAD.)  It essentially turns into a huuuuuuuuge tostada!  Anywho, to make them a touch healthier,…

Mom’s Texas Sheet Cake

My mother told me the story of how we came into the possession of this recipe.  It’s pretty neat actually.  A lady called up my grandmother and asked if it would be okay to bring a cake to my parent’s reception.  My grandmother agreed and so this kind lady brought a Texas sheet cake to…

It’s Friday afternoon and I’m racing through Fry’s Grocery in Scottsdale, AZ.  I waited until the very last minute to buy everything for the camping trip I had planned.  As I ogle the massive veggie section of this Fry’s, I start to run down the list of items I need to feed everyone for the…
