What do you get when you baste baked chicken with Auntie Miranda's homemade low sugar carrot cake jam? One DE-lish-ous dinner! Super easy too. In the oven inside 10 minutes. If you skin the chicken, it's also a great diet... Continue reading

Our friends, Jeff and Dee, gave us this recipe a few months ago and, for the first time, I had all the ingredients in the house at the same time. Well, let me be honest, I'd lost the actual recipe... Continue reading

One pound lost this week and having a great week. I took a day of vacation this week so this weekend I'm going to really do some spring cleaning while Gene's slaving away over a hot radio mic. Looking forward... Continue reading

Quesadillas are one of those Tex-Mex restaurant dishes that's just as good, if not better!, made at home. Perfect for a family, they're easily customizable, delicious, and both quick and easy to make. Anyone can make these and I'm talking... Continue reading

I kept seeing "energy balls" or "energy bites" all over Pinterest and wondered what was up with that. Well, now I know! They are 1 ounce bites (which actually means about 3 bites) of sweet and savory deliciousness wrapped around... Continue reading

What's new this week? I've lost another 2 pounds! That makes a total of 28 poundss this time last year. Not fast but livable. It's all about cooking good food at home, avoiding drive thru's and chemicals/preservatives/etc as much as... Continue reading

One of our favorite places to eat, when I'm not cooking at home, is a locally owned restaurant, Arris Pizza on Republic Road. Started in Jefferson City, MO in 1961 by Arris Pardalos, we're lucky to have one his few... Continue reading

So much stuff going on this week, including jumping out of Chris's humongously tall pickup truck (long story) and my right knee saying "Thanks a lot, (W)itch!" So a few days ice/heat treating followed by a cortisone shot at the... Continue reading

Remember when broccoli salad was called Trees N Raisins salad because that's basically all it was, with maybe some sunflower seeds? Me too. This is so much yummier (and even healthier too). And ultimately customizable to what's in your fridge... Continue reading

I could have made this fancier, sound fancier, by making it a Mushroom and Onion Omelet but the truth is rather than cooking the eggs and mushrooms/onions separately and then combining, I actually prefer the taste of the mushrooms and... Continue reading

With our work Biggest Loser official competition underway, I'm definitely paying more attention to eating at home. I've talked a lot about diets over the years on the blog, experimenting with this and that and every other thing but what... Continue reading

Besides healthy, my key themes these days seem to be "quick", "easy", and "adaptable", as in, what's already in my fridge/pantry? But don't forget tasty. Of course the ultimate is, always is: does it taste yummy? This meets all of... Continue reading

Don't know about you guys but this week is going to be a little rushed for me. On the one hand, there's supposed to be a gigantic-ish freezing rain storm on the way this weekend. On the other hand, I... Continue reading

Magic Cheesecake, like all the other "magic" cheesecakes is one that forms its own crust. For those of us who can skip (meaning it's not our favorite part) the graham cracker crust, it's perfect. It forms a slight crust but... Continue reading

I love soup. All kinds of soups, stews, chowders. Soups with veggies only, soups with beans, and soup with everything but the kitchen sink. Let's face it: it's usually easy to make, you can usually use your crockpot, there is... Continue reading
