Chicken Soup with Orzo
Chicken Soup with Orzo
If you’re like me, you keep your eye out for crock-pot recipes that can be thrown together in a hurry. There are plenty that I’d like to try, but my busy schedule doesn’t always allow me to do a lot of preparation. I’m often tossing ingredients into a crock pot before bedtime to cook the next day or I’m hurriedly throwing things together before I walk out the door in the morning. For me, browning meat is an additional step that takes time and effort. It’s much easier for me to prepare recipes that are simply “load and go,” no precooking necessary.

    Life in the same spot can be comforting, but maybe not as adventurous as you’d like. If you’re in the midst of saving for your dream vacation, go ahead and let your taste buds do the traveling for you. They may just lead you to your next destination. 
  • Fall favorites: Pumpkin spice and caramel apples
    Cooler mornings and evenings mean grabbing a sweater or jacket on the way out the door. It also means our tastes change. My two favorite flavors of fall include pumpkin spice and caramel apples. If I could, I would drink a warm pumpkin spice latte each morning of autumn. 
  • Soda-pop dishes: So delicious
    There’s nothing easier than opening up your fridge, pulling out a can of soda pop and popping open the tab as you’re preparing your favorite dishes. Add some unexpected flavor, a little fizz and maybe even a little color to your dishes in the near future.

    If you want to tantalize your taste buds, pair up something sweet and salty for a delightful dessert. Chewy caramel and crunchy pretzels are a unique, mouthwatering combination.

    The key to great spaghetti is a delicious sauce that's been allowed to simmer for hours as layers of flavor meld together.

  • Hurray for summer: Gak, slime, pizza, kabobs
    Summer has arrived, and that means kids need things to do. My boys are thoroughly enjoying summertime, and so am I. I don't miss the hurried schedule of the school year and my hectic commute. Instead we are able to relax and make our own schedule each day.
