Million Dollar Mac Bake

This lit­tle recipe needs to be tucked away for that moment din­ner­time has snuck up on you. A semi-stocked pantry and fridge should have just about every­thing you need to get this yum­my, sat­is­fy­ing meal on the table in under an hour — AND with just the effort of boil­ing some pas­ta, mix­ing in a few ingre­di­ents and bak­ing to bub­bly, gooey per­fec­tion.

Ten Herb Grilled Chicken — ’tis the season

It’s start­ing to get hot out­side, the days are grow­ing longer & all sorts of green things are leaf­ing out in my gar­dens. All three of those facts com­bine to form the per­fect oppor­tu­ni­ty to grill 10 herb mar­i­nat­ed chick­en. Are you won­der­ing if I real­ly used ten dif­fer­ent herbs? Con­tin­ue read­ing

BEST NYC Sweets, 6 Bakeries in 4 Days

While vis­it­ing NYC (for the first time ever) last week, I checked out a list of bak­eries.

(It was only there 3½ days peo­ple — isn’t that crim­i­nal?!) Con­tin­ue read­ing

An Okie Girl’s Take on Chicken Marsala

I am torn between 2 names for this recipe, the one list­ed above and “Busy Momma’s Chick­en Marsala”. This recipe real­ly is a blend of both. You see, this Okie girl has received no for­mal cook­ing train­ing. Most of my recipes are a mix of what I have on hand and what I think food should taste like. So when I have “an Okie girl’s take” in the title you can be sure I know the food pro­fes­sion­als would prob­a­bly spank me for dar­ing to attempt such refined, clas­sic, inter­na­tion­al dish­es.

Devil’s Pool Granola ((A Big Cedar Recipe))

I am so excit­ed to share the recipe for the best gra­nola I have ever tast­ed. Last August, the fam­i­ly & I trav­eled to Bran­son for a fun “last hoorah” before the start of the school year. While there, Big Cedar break­fast was one of our main attrac­tions. Oh my — the best break­fast. So very good!! Con­tin­ue read­ing

Jalapeño Lime Grilled Chicken ((my Mother’s Day Favorite!))

Every year, on Mother’s Day, hub­by & the herd treat me to a home-cooked meal of my choice. I always choose the same thing :: Jalapeño Hon­ey Soy Grilled Chick­en. I came across this recipe’s inspi­ra­tion close to 15 years ago when I was work­ing to shed that dread­ed “hon­ey­moon weight”. You know what I mean right?? Con­tin­ue read­ing
