These Ham and Swiss Cheese Savory Crêpes will melt in your mouth. I used Alpine Lace® Swiss Cheese, which… Continue Reading

Baked Parmesan Tilapia {Fast & Easy way to cook fish}

Baked Parmesan Tilapia

I’ll admit it. I’ve had a fear of cooking fish. I know it’s good for me, that I should feed it to my family at least once a week, but I’ve been scared. I don’t hate fish, but I don’t love it either. I’m kind of indifferent. I’ll get salmon sometimes at restaurants, and even shared this Grilled Salmon, but I don’t even make that as often as I should. I’ve been worried that my… Continue Reading

Rosemary Ginger Pork Chops

Rosemary Ginger Pork Chops

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

Family Meal Plan #1

Family Meal Plan #1

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

Baked Corn Flake Chicken

Baked Corn Flake Chicken

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.   Baked Corn Flake Chicken 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.

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.

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
