Bruschetta Chicken

I pulled chicken out yesterday because I knew it’s what I wanted, but I wasn’t sure how I wanted to prepare it. So I pulled out a cookbook I love (one from my aunt’s church group) and looked through the chicken recipes. Though I don’t like tomatoes, the recipe for Bruschetta Chicken just sounded awesome. I didn’t follow the recipe, but instead made up my own. I remembered buying cans of Aylmer Garlic and Olive Oil diced tomatoes and thought…

Kick Your Cold With Magical Healing Soup

As requested on facebook – Magical Healing Soup! From Alicia  Silverstone’s book – The Kind Diet this soup is perfect for those days you are feeling a little under the weather. Like I am today – and have been since Thursday night. I woke up Friday knowing I shouldn’t eat anything BUT this soup – so after a great veggie filled shopping trip I did just that. It’s different each time I make it, so there really isn’t a *recipe*…

Yellow Pepper Salsa

I have posted this recipe before but after looking through my old post I realized it was not great, so I’ve deleted that post and I’m doing it again. This recipe is intended to be cooked and canned, but I love it fresh as well, which as a former tomato hater is HUGE!    Yellow Pepper Salsa {Recipe came from a friend, so I can’t even take credit!} 2 cups chopped yellow peppers 2 cups chopped peeled tomatoes {no need to…

Feeding the Captain #thesearethedays #makeyummyfood

Usually when the kids and I go away without the Captain, I like to leave prepared meals for him in the fridge. So while we are here enjoying the condo, I left meals for him as usual, but also some food in the freezer for his next rotation ~ Here’s what I made: 1. Lasagna  ~ I don’t have a recipe or a photo, but I should get both. It doesn’t seem to matter how many lasagna’s I try, this one remains my favorite.…

Feeding Our Dogs Raw #thesearethedays #dogsgoraw

It all started with THIS ~ hundreds of complaints from the last 4 months of people whose pets either got sick or even died as a result of their food….the same brand of food our dogs are on. WERE on, but I’ll get to that. I do honestly believe it was more than likely a bad batch, but it was enough for me to reconsider what we’ve been feeding our dogs. So, being halfway through our last bag of dog food,…

Take Away Meals #thesearethedays #makeyummyfood #pinterestsuccess

I haven’t really mentioned it before, so only those who know me in real life know, but the Captain has a new job that often takes him away. I won’t say for how long at a time nor will you see me posting online about him being gone, because let’s be honest ~ The internet world can be a scary place.  But, one thing I will talk about is the  yummy food that I send with him. He works long…

Catching the Bento Fever #thesearethedays #bentofever

For a few years now I have been telling Brent I want to pack Brooklyn better lunches. More than just the typical {and boring} sandwich, and something with more variety and healthier items. Not to mention, cutting down on the amount of ziploc baggies used. Don’t get me wrong – ziploc bags are necessary and something we use often – but I hated the idea that we were filling our own landfill with her lunches alone. So last  year I…
