I’m on a roll!! I’ve got Family Meal Plan #2 all ready for ya, two weeks in a row after Family Meal Plan #1 last week. My goal is to share this each Sunday, (hoping I can keep it up!) This is what we ate last week at our home.
I haven’t cooked much with pork, and I’ve decided to cycle it into our meals more regularly. Spices make all the difference in a good meal, so I marinated the pork chops with what I had on hand, two of my most favorite flavors: Rosemary and Ginger. Let me introduces a super quick and easy meal, Rosemary Ginger Pork Chops. I love fresh ginger. I didn’t know this until a few years ago, when I… Continue Reading
For a LOOONG time, I’ve been thinking about sharing a meal plan with all of you. I’ve recently gotten into a groove of planning the weekly meals on Sunday afternoon and shopping on Monday morning. The one Pinterest Board that I actively use is my Delicious-Savory Food board, a.k.a. dinner recipes I’ve pinned. I am regularly looking at food blogs for meals that will work for my family, and when I find something new I… Continue Reading
I can’t even tell you how excited my kids were at the deliciousness of this meal! I’m always wanting kid-friendly and quick meals, and this fits into both categories. After my 13 year old (growing, eating me out of house and home) son took a bite of one piece of chicken, he hoarded 5 more pieces onto his plate to ensure he’d get enough. With how active they are with sports and school and everything, I want to make sure they are eating right. Especially on game days, they need a good, hearty meal after exercising. I think I’ve shared before that my husband has been the soccer coach to both of my boys (on the same team). In spring and fall, our Thursday nights are about scarfing a meal, and they run out the door. My girl and I like to cheer all 3 of them on each week on game day, with a family, too. Sports and eating good protein go hand in hand, and this meal has just that. You can use chicken tenders, but I used chicken breasts and cut them into smaller strips. I used 4 large breasts to feed my family of 6. I looked all over online for a recipe using Kellogg’s Corn Flakes and chicken, and found this Crispy Corn Flake Chicken and then this Corn Flakes Tender Strips and used bits of both. Here is how I ended up making my Baked Corn Flake Chicken.
- 4-5 large chicken breasts, sliced to pieces
- 1 tsp. garlic (I use garlic salt)
- salt and pepper
- 3 cups Kellogg’s corn flakes, crushed
- 1 cup flour
- 1 cup buttermilk
- honey mustard or ketchup to dip
- Preheat oven to 350
- Mix garlic, salt, and pepper in a bag/bowl with uncooked chicken and toss.
- Let sit for 10 minutes or more as marinade.
- In another bag/bowl, crush Kellogg’s corn flakes.
- In a shallow bowl mix flour, salt, & pepper.
- In another shallow bowl add buttermilk.
- Dunk the chicken in flour and then in buttermilk.
- Place the chicken in the bag and coat well.
- Bake 30-40 minutes until chicken is cooked through.
- Dip with honey mustard or ketchup if desired.

It’s the perfect time of year to stop and take a minute to count your many blessings. We gathered some friends together for a gratitude blog hop because we wanted to let our families know just how much we love and appreciate them. I’m sharing my Chicken Curry Broccoli recipe because it’s the favorite dish of the people I’m the most grateful for–my family! After you check out the recipe, visit my friends (and see their cute… Continue Reading
This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of McCormick & Company for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine. Family dinner time is sacred around our home. We sit up to dinner every single night together. Sometimes it’s rushed, rarely it’s out to eat, on the occasional Friday we make a picnic with pizza for our movie night. Around the dinner table is the only set time that we have to be together… Continue Reading
It’s finally cooled off a bit here in Texas. Though it may not last, I’ll take it! I can now pull out all the soups and recipes to warm me up inside, and one of my favorites is chili. Have you ever heard of Chocolate Chili? At first, I thought it sounded pretty strange, but when I heard it was a recipe that won chili cook-off’s, I had to give it a try! I thought… Continue Reading
I’m very excited to share this delicious Creamy Pest Gnocchi with Sausage. It’s a unique, hearty, and easy meal that’s a crowd pleaser in my home. I was asked by World Market to come up with a recipe for their Gourmet Getaway campaign, and was compensated for this post, all opinions are 100% my own. I’d never even heard of gnocchi until I was 19, and my brother returned home from a mission to Brazil.… Continue Reading
Pillsbury Crescent Rolls have been around for ages. I remember eating them fresh out of the oven when I was a kid. They were just served on the side with a meal, but now they are included as part of the meal in so many fabulous recipes. I made this Parmesan Ham and Swiss Crescent Roll recipe for my family the other day, and they gobbled them down quickly! I’ll admit, I ate quite a few… Continue Reading
I LOVE the dill flavor. I don’t necessarily love dill pickles by itself, but the dill seasoning is delicious to me. I was searching for some recipes with dill, and thought I’d share something delicious for those of you dill lovers out there like me. Crab Cakes with Yogurt Dill Sauce by Food, Wine, Thyme
In the past month since I’ve been sharing quick/kid friendly recipes for the local challenge, I thought I needed to share some of our families favorite dinner recipes with all of you. I’m always searching for new recipes to change things up around here, so why not share our tried and true? This Quick and Easy Enchilada Recipe is a meal my mom made for us kids when we were younger, and she still makes… Continue Reading
How about a little Satay Chicken with Peanut Sauce for dinner? My sister in law Kim loves Thai Food. Her mom lived in Thailand as a missionary before she was born, and she was raised on delicious Thai recipes. She’s cooked us several meals, and taken us to a few restaurants, and though I can’t say I’ve fully embraced all things Thai (not a slimy noodle fan) I do LOVE anything with peanut sauce… Continue Reading
I’ve got another recipe to share in the H-E-B Meal Maker Challenge with ConAgra Foods. I’d seen a similar recipe from the Our Best Bites cookbook (one of my faves), but I changed up the insides to add some red and green peppers and hash browns. You can make this as simple as just eggs, or however you standardly make an omelet, but they are great to freeze and eat on-the-go as well! I used… Continue Reading
It’s week 3 of the Meal Maker Challenge with my local grocery store, H-E-B and ConAgra Foods. I’m excited to share this recipe with you another Kid Friendly Family Dinner in Under 30 minutes, Chicken Parmesan with Vegetable Pasta! The veggie pasta is fairly new (to me), and pairs nicely with the chicken! This recipe is so easy to make, my daughter helped me!
- 6 H-E-B Natural Chicken Breast (boneless/skinless)
- 4 large eggs
- 1/3 cup Italian flavored breadcrumbs
- 1 8 oz. package vegetable pasta
- 1 15 oz. can Hunts tomato sauce
- 6 slices mozzerella cheese
- Crack eggs into a shallow bowl, whisk
- Dip each chicken breast into the egg mixture
- Dip each “egged” chicken breast into the breadcrumb mixture
- Spray skillet with PAM cooking spray, and cook each chicken breast on both sides (5-7 min. each) until fully cooked.
- Meanwhile, set a pot of water to boil.
- Heat up tomato sauce
- Cook pasta noodles until al dente (7 min.)
- After each chicken breast is fully cooked, place a slice of mozzerella cheese on each and broil for 2-3 minutes til melted
- Serve Parmesan chicken with vegetable pasta on the side.
- Serves a family of 6 in under 30 minutes.
Here is how to make it–make a little line, dip the chicken in the eggs, coat it with the bread mixture, and cook it up! You can see from the picture below, that H-E-B makes their own pasta that is infused with 2 servings of veggies–LOVE that! It adds a nice little flavor to the pasta, and kids don’t even realize it’s veggies–woohoo!

It’s week 2 of the H-E-B Meal Maker Challenge with ConAgra Foods where I’ve been asked to share Kid Friendly Family Meals to make in under 30 minutes. In total, 5 recipes with 5 different ingredients to start with. This week our ingredient to use was Hunt’s Diced Tomato’s, and I thought of a family favorite. This Chicken Tortilla Soup recipe is so quick and easy to make, and the texture with the crunchy tortilla strips is… Continue Reading
