Today, I am sharing a super EASY dinner recipe with you. The words Easy and Dinner just belong in the same sentence, don’t they! I know you agree. Getting dinner on the table in a swift manner is a blessing. Kraft has developed a new line of products, Kraft Recipe Makers, that helps families get d
I love a good rotisserie chicken. They make dinner time so easy! They are by far the most moist, delicious and economical at Costco. I hardly ever go there that I don’t buy one. However, often when I get home I end up scratching my head and thinking “All right, now what am I going to make with that
This is a sponsored post from The Plus Side.
I have partnered with The Plus Side today to bring you three brand new recipes. With the start of football season (and basketball season coming soon!), we thought it might be nice to post a few (super easy) game day recipes that are sure to put a smile
I am having a great time coming up with new 30 Minute Skillet Dinners to share with you! There is just something wonderful about a hearty meal that can be made (mostly!) in one pan and in such a short time. It seems that time is something many of us are in short supply of, dang it. Why is there alwa
Last week I posted a recipe for 30 Minute Skillet Lasagna of Wonder. My family loved it, you guys loved it, I loved it. Who doesn’t love an awesome dinner recipe that only takes 30 minutes to make! Every person walking this planet enjoys a fabulous meal that doesn’t take all day to prepare. At lea
This week I’m featuring a few recipes that I have been experimenting with lately. These Alfredo wraps are made with Newman’s Own Alfredo Sauce. For the dough I used my French Bread recipe, though I’m sure you could make them using Rhodes frozen dough. I opted for dough from scratch. I have this s
Don’t those just look delicious!
Ok….the skewers do seem to be a bit burnt.
Next time I will remember to soak the skewers in water
before I put the chicken on.
You remember too, then we will all be happy campers.
This recipe for Asian Grilled Chicken is going to perk your s
Well guys and gals, we have MyHandsomeHusband to thank for this fine recipe. It is fabulous! I had him write it down several months ago when he was making it. Then just a week or so ago I gave it a whirl. It came together quite quickly, and all of my children like it. That is a win, win I say.
I have a fabulous, succulent recipe to share with you all today. It’s a stunning treasure of a recipe, great to pull out if you are having company for dinner, making a special meal for your valentine, or preparing a take in meal to someone you care about. This chicken is a real crowd pleaser for
Hello dear reader and welcome to you today. I’m excited about the recipe I have brought along to share with you all! (It’s delicious, wonderful and a little outside the box, be warned. Please walk with me to a world outside the typical casserole, won’t you?) Have you noticed as you browse the inter
Chili is such a great fall and winter favorite, am I right?
I have a couple of great chili recipes living and breathing on this site. Triple Bean Chili is loaded with ground beef, three kinds of beans and is packed with classic chili flavor. Creamy White Chicken Chili can be made in the crock p
Dear reader, if I could pass one of these fabulous BBQ Chicken Pinwheels right through the computer screen and into your very presence…I would do it! Plain old hum drum words cannot do them justice, truly! They are simply fantastic. I took my 30 Minute Pizza Crust recipe, rolled it out and added
They like to eat.
(A blessing, and sometimes a curse)
They really like chicken.
And Sweet Baby Rays.
They will even go for chopped cilantro!
(A definite blessing)
They love hot pizza crust,
just out of the oven covered in gooey cheese.
These wonderful Crock Pot BBQ Chicken Sandwiches are quite simple to put together and require minimal ingredients. Not only are they easy to make, but they taste fabulous. My whole family loves them. The shredded chicken has a saucy, slightly zesty, smokey flavor that is ever so tasty. Serve them on
Well my friends, Jamie Cooks It Up! has been under a bit of construction this week!
I have been fiddling, and googling, and researching, and tweaking and rearranging. The goal was to make things a bit more clear! I was shooting for easier to read, easier to search, easier to follow.
I am very
If you are ready for something besides dessert, raise your hand. Alright, maybe I’m the only one raising my hand. But, let’s face it. We really should eat something in December besides sugar, shouldn’t we? I know that my taste buds are sugared out for the moment….I am in need of something fant
I have a blast from the past to share with you today, dear reader. This Beach Street Lemon Chicken has been one of my families favorite recipes for many years and was one of the first recipes I posted some 5 years ago. That original post has some pretty frightening pictures in it. I wanted to give i
A few days ago I was running errands with MyHandsomeHusband. Nothing big and important…just picking up cottage cheese and carrot sticks. Because that’s what I have been craving like mad lately. And you know how carrot stick cravings go. You’ve got to get to the store and get some fast, before yo
Last week my kids and I were out and about town, running errands and making a stop at The Classic Fun Center. That place was brimming with kids roller skating, jumping in the bounce houses and splashing down water slides. Man, was it crowded! Boy was it loud and baby was I seriously beat when we lef
Loaded with spicy flavor, these Buffalo Chicken Quesadillas are a great, quick-fix lunch or dinner for any of you out there who enjoy a nice kick to your food. Which I do. They aren’t so super spicy that you will need to drown yourself in an ice shower, they just have a little bit of a kick to them.
Sometimes it’s the simplest of recipes that are the best. Simple ingredients, simple execution…simply delightful to eat and enjoy. This Butter Cream Chicken fits the description here, my friends. The chicken is lightly breaded in Ritz Crackers, pan fried (not deep fried) and topped w
Happy Monday, friends! I have a great, new pasta recipe for you this morning. This yummy Cajun Chicken Pasta is creamy, has a slightly spicy kick to it and is studded with tender chunks of chicken, sauteed peppers and onions. My family loved it. I thought they might be a little bit turned off by the
I have mentioned to you all a time or two before, that MyHandsomeHusband is a fabulous “sauce” maker. He is the cook behind many recipes on this blog of mine, including the Hearty Spaghetti Sauce, Adam’s Bottled Cranberry Sauce and Asian Lettuce Wraps. The man can cook, I tell you. Which is only on
I am really on a casserole kick as of late. Seriously, they are just the best for days when my family is running around in the afternoon to various activities. I can hear myself saying “dish yourself some of the casserole before you head out the door again, my people” and “there is wonderful sustena
Which means a whole new week is stretching itself right out in front of our very eyes, ladies and gentlemen. That’s kind of how Monday works, just in case you have forgotten, it has been a week since it happened last. I thought I would clarify, for those of you with sh
This fabulous Cheesy Ham, Chicken and Wild Rice Casserole is comfort food at it’s best. It’s packed with flavor, creamy in texture, is super easy to put together and makes great use of leftover ham and chicken (rotisserie chicken would work great).
I have a little question I would like to propose on this very cold January day. What do you suppose Snowboots, Swimsuits and Losers have to do with each other? Hmmm. Think it over now.
Any ideas? Well. I suppose I’ll just have to tell you how all thr
What is it about spring time that is so super crazy! I suppose it has to do with spring sports, end of the year school activities, fresh yard work to be done and that sort of thing, right! On account of the busy-ness that seems to be abundant, I brought along an easy, family pleasing, 30 minute dinn
Loaded with layers of flavor, this Crock Pot Chicken and Dumplings is a comforting meal that is both easy to prepare and wonderful to serve. Tender chunks of chicken are paired with hearty root vegetables and slowly simmered together in a creamy sauce. Biscuit batter is added to the top of the crock
This has been a standard at our house for years. The original recipe came from my Mom but I have tweaked it a bit to make it a bit more healthy. (The original called for an entire stick of melted butter…I like to save my sticks of butter for cookies.) One of the best things about this dish,
This year I am planning on doing a little cleaning up around here. There are some really great recipes lurking way back in my archives that I originally posted in the first few months of this little blogs life.
Back when it was just me, two or three of you…and my mom. 🙂
For all of you gardeners out there with a plethora of Zucchini or Yellow Summer Squash, I have a super easy, darn delicious Chicken and Zucchini Stir Fry recipe (FYI, you can still make this recipe, even if you didn’t plant a garden. Just throwing that out there). This simple stir fry is adorned w
I found this recipe about 10 years ago in a healthy eating cookbook and have been making it ever since. It is one of our favorites. Yes, my kids will eat it. Some of them dish themselves the veggies they like, my girls eat the onions! Who would have thought! Some of my kids like to pick out the
This past Monday was MyHandsomeHusbands birthday. As tradition goes around here, I asked what he would like for his birthday dinner. Homemade Won Tons is what he requested.
“I’ll just roll up the my sleeves,

Love me a good crock pot recipe.
Love smelling something hearty and tasty just a simmering away all day while I do really important things like go to the grocery store, wipe sticky messes off my counter (I am a professional counter wiper, don’t you know. It’s really glamorous work) and wrestle
I have a great (simple!) recipe for you all today for Chicken Fajita Nachos that is super delicious. They make fantastic game day food, could work as a hearty lunch or as a simple dinner as well. Lots of possibilities with this one, gang. They come together in about 30 minutes, making them quick a
Last weekend my dear Grandma Barbara passed away. She was one of those ladies a girl feels lucky to have in her life. Not because she was a brilliant scientist, won the Nobel Peace Prize, or invented electricity…or anything like that. 🙂
Oh, I am in love with this hearty sandwich.
Oh, I am in love with the sweet friend who introduced me to it!
A couple of months ago, this sweet friend showed up on my doorstep with a wonderful meal for my family.
This is not a joke.
These kind of lovely people are around us everywhere.
This delicious casserole is comfort food plain and simple. Shredded chicken is mixed in a creamy sauce and then layered over tender white rice. A crispy butter cracker and poppy seed topping is sprinkled over the top that really sends this casserole over the top. The combination is wonderful! My f
With the summer quickly approaching (yipee!) I wanted to hurry and post one last soup recipe before the weather heats up and we start talking about grilling and homemade ice cream and other sunny pleasures.
This Chicken Red Quinoa and Brown Rice soup is a twist on the classic Chicken and Rice Sou
If you need a little something to warm up your spirits today, this is the soup for you. This soup tastes best if the chicken is allowed to simmer slowly for about 2 hours. It smells like heaven while it’s cooking away….it’s a great meal to make on a day you are hanging out at home cleaning ou
If you are looking for a super easy, healthy, loaded with flavor, amazing tender chicken recipe of wonder…this is it, friends. It seriously couldn’t be easier! We love Mexican food around here and I am always on the look out for new recipes to mix things up. This chicken has a wonderful Mexican f
Today I’m sharing a very simple, easy to prepare, dinner recipe that is sure to put a smile on many (if not all) of the faces at your dinner table. Penne pasta and roasted chicken pieces are covered in homemade alfredo sauce and then sprinkled with mozzarella cheese and panko bread crumbs. Pop i
This is a great kid lovin’, adult pleasin’ recipe I got from my dear friend Kristine. I have changed it somewhat to incorporate more of the ingredients I keep on hand. It should only take about 60 minutes from start to finish and is delicious with my
Quick and Easy Breadsticks.
The other day I found myself face to face with MyLittleTwinBoyNate.
I was telling him this-and-that, and some important things about remembering the rules and not arguing so much and being sweet and nice. Which he is, almost all of the time…I would like to point out in this very sentence. He
Well the days of summer are coming to and end.
Coming to end, I am sad to say.
My girls will start school on Monday morning
and when that happens….
I feel a bit of a panic set in.
What causes this?
of those blessed hours between
4 and 7.
You know how it goes.
If you are looking for an EASY recipe that is hearty, comforting and delicious look no further. This creamy chicken dish is just for you! Made in the crock pot, the prep time for this beauty is very minimal. Your looking at a breezy 10 minutes to put it all together. 🙂 That’s something to smile abo
I brought something simple to share with you today, my friends. Because I know you like simple. And I know you are running around town having fun this summer, enjoying all that the season has to offer, which may leave you with less time to tinker around your kitchen. Am I right, or what?
I love a good bowl of White Chicken Chili. There is a recipe for it living my archives (found here) that I’ve made for many years and hold in high regard. But, here’s the thing. You make it with dried beans, which ends up taking a little bit of extra planning and patience (both of which I find mysel
Summertime is upon us, friends and let’s face it…cooking dinner (or lunch!) can be a dilemma. Schedules are loose, it’s hot, there are children everywhere (bless them!) and time spent in the kitchen seems to always be hurried. These yummy Crispy Chicken and Cheese Burritos are my latest quick fix
One of the main ingredients for this recipe (Philadelphia Cooking Cream) has been discontinued, dang it. I have made a new and improved recipe that uses regular cream cheese and basic pantry ingredients as a substitute. You can see the new recipe by clicking HERE. I am leaving this recipe live (
Does this recipe look familiar to you? I originally posted it almost 3 years ago as a sponsored post by Kraft, highlighting their line of Philadelphia Cooking Creams. This recipe has done super well, ranking as my second most popular recipe of all time. Sweet! However, this past year Kraft disco
This amazingly flavorful and easy to put together Crispy Southwest Chicken is fabulous! If you are a long time reader, you may know of the Crispy Cheddar Chicken recipe that is living in my archives. It is, by far, my most viewed recipe of all time. Clic
I love a good Main Course Salad. I feel so healthy and full of vitamins when I feed one to my family for dinner. I swear I can see their eyes shine brighter and their hair get all glossy with every bite. But maybe that’s just my imagination running wild with me. I heard somewhere that healthy vi
Whenever I ask readers what kinds of recipes they would like to see more of on this little ol’ blog of mine, most of them respond with “Easy dinner recipes, please. You can never have enough of those!” And that is the gospel truth, is it not? Even for those of us who adore cooking and
I love to cook with the crock pot during the fall and winter months. There is something wonderful and comforting about having dinner simmering away while the hectic-ness of life ensues. Soup is, of course, particularly enjoyable and Chicken Noodle Soup fits right at the top of the list of comfort f
Creamy Chicken and Rice Soup has become one of my families all time favorite soups. I seem to make it at least once a month. You might be surprised to hear it, but several my kids have confessed to preferring it over the treasured Chicken Noodle that has been a staple around here for ages. This
I love a great throw-it-together Crock Pot recipe, don’t you? It seems I am finding myself in need of them more and more as the years go by. Why is that, I wonder. I suppose it has to do with the household of teenagers I’m living in, and the car I find myself driving in all afternoon during the time
I have a very simple appetizer recipe for you today. Sometimes the simplest of things can make life so much calmer and easier and oh so fabulous. Simple is under-rated, in my book. Especially at this time of year when we all try and pile on 10 times as many activities as we have time for. You do
One of the things I love most about summer is the opportunity I have to spend time with my extended family members. My husband and I both come from big families, lots of brothers and sisters, nieces and nephews a plenty.

This pasta salad is full of fabulous fresh veggies, chunks of cheddar cheese, grilled chicken, fresh cilantro and corkscrew pasta. The dressing is made from a Hidden Valley Fiesta Ranch Mix that packs a ton of fabulous creamy sout
This amazing Chicken Pot Pie is a little bit unusual, I have to admit. Instead of calling for a traditional pastry crust, fillo dough (found in the freezer section of your local grocery store) is sliced into thin strips and arranged over the top of the filling. It creates a light, crispy topping tha
This wonderful Garlic Chicken and Vegetable Bowtie Pasta is my latest attempt at getting a tasty meal on the table without a lot of fuss and trouble. You can make it in 30-40 minutes and guys…let me tell you. It’s super good. Tender chunks of warm garlic chicken, sautéed mushrooms, peppers and z

I’ve been on a real quesadilla kick lately, friends. There are so many different flavor combinations available and they come together so quickly! These Grilled Chicken and Pepper Quesadillas are my latest favorite. I can’t get enough of them! I use premade grilled chicken breasts (see picture below)
I could eat this Grilled Chicken Caesar Wrap everyday for the rest of my life and be a very happy woman. The ingredients are simple, but packed with flavor. A warm grilled chicken breast is sliced and nestled in a spinach wrap surro

This post is not a baked good.
We’ve gotten a little baked-good-heavy

If the truth were to be known….I could benefit from a good solid month of cooking nothing but vegetables.
You could too?
A couple of weeks ago I was chatting with my dear friend Katherine. (She has given me many recipes in the past, that I’ve shared with you all. Like this fabulous Hawaiian Pineapple Chicken and this tasty Cinnamon Bear Popcorn. Both a delight! Kind of like Katherine, who is darn delight, herself!)
Man, do I have a couple of delicious recipes to share with you today. My sister-in-law Mary has been making these fabulous Grilled Greek Chicken Kabobs with Tzaziki Sauce for me and my family over the past couple of months when we get together.

Have you ever tried making foil packets for dinner? I would imagine many of you have made them to send off with your sons and husbands as they head off to scout camp. However, I’m not talking about the kind of foil packets you throw into a camp fire. At least, not this time around. (Click here for
Have you noticed how popular “bowls” are getting. Now, I am not referring to the actual ceramic container that contains your sustenance. 🙂 Rather, I am making reference to all of the yummy combinations of meat/grain/veggie/sauce that are being served in one bowl all together. I’ve seen people maki
Loaded with sweet and tangy teriyaki flavor, this Grilled Teriyaki Chicken is my families new favorite way to enjoy grilling in the summertime. Everyone of my kids gobbled it up like it was sweet dream pie. Or sweet dream chicken, actually. Which is what it is, my friends. Sweet Dream Chicken. Tend
Holy, cow. I hope you make this sandwich. It is out of this world scrumptious…that is, if you are in to things like juicy chicken, caramelized onions, grilled pineapple and melted cheese all covered in a knock your socks off teriyaki sauce.
Happy Saturday to you all! Welcome to another slim it

I love chicken salad, but have always been bummed about the high fat content. I have played around with many chicken salad recipes trying to make them more healthified. Just changing out regular mayo for the light stuff l
I’m always on the lookout for new recipes to share with you all. I read all kinds of cookbooks and magazines, watch the Food Network and hit my family and friends up for their best recipes. My very favorite are “Something From Nothing” recipes. You know the kind. They don’t have a lot of fancy
If I could do anything in my earthly power to convince you to try this scrumptious chicken, I would! It is so delightful I had to restrain myself from eating it all before my family came home and joined me for dinner. Seriously. The chicken is lightly
I love making skillet fajitas. They are so easy and quick. I often use a packaged fajita mix, and keep a large stash of them in my food storage. However, for the past few months my stash has been depleted and for some reason (lady with five kids here, diminishing brain cells is part of the experien
I love the simple deliciousness of this easy recipe. The flavor combination of the lemon, honey and and fresh ginger is wonderful! The cooking method, super simple, my friends. Chicken chunks are cooked in a large skillet while a heavenly sauce is mixed up and cooked in a sauce pan. Add them togeth
It is no secret, we eat a lot of chicken around here. In fact Chicken is the second largest category in my recipe file. You knew Dessert was first, didn’t you? Sigh…dessert is just so wonderful and fun, a person like me is compelled to dwell on it more than I should, I suppose. But chicken! Well i
Wow, do I have an amazingly easy, wonderful, one-pan, skillet dinner recipe for you all today. I love the ease of making dinner using only one pan, don’t you? Pretty sure I’m not alone in this. I suppose there might be some of you out there who love to wash extra pans and dishes, but I would wager

I have a super healthy, super yummy recipe to share with you all today. It’s Halloween Week, as you know and chocolate candy bars are lurking around every corner of my life, and most likely yours as well. What can be done to counteract this kind of situation. I ask you? What. Can be done.
I can NOT say enough wonderful things about this salad. It was created to taste like one of the Rumbi Island Grill salads. Shandra who created My Food Storage Deals and Deals to Meals is the brains behind this beauty. She has a real knack for making fabulous knock off recipes. Her sister is a frie
This Sausage and Potato Skillet Dinner is packed with hearty flavor and goodness. It comes together in under 30 minutes making it an easy weeknight dinner solution.

Boy do I have a quick and easy, seriously tasty recipe for you today. If you love a great, deep, tangy-sweet balsamic flavor then you are going to love this chicken. As a bonus, the veggies and chicken are cooked on the same pan (less to clean up!) and the sauce is made with only 5 ingredients. Did
Have you noticed the abundance of sheet pan dinners floating around the online food world lately? Boy, I have. They’ve definitely caught my interest and I’ve been dying to try my hand at making one or two or twenty. I love the idea of making an entire meal, complete with protein and veggies all on o
If you have read this little old blog of mine for the past year or so, you know I’m in love with Sheet Pan Dinners. There are so many great factors involved when making one. Top on the list is the ease of cooking veggies and protein side by side in one pan large sheet pan (make that 2 large sheet p

Skillet Chicken Fajitas make a wonderful, fast meal that my whole family loves. (Minus one small boy who doesn’t care for bell peppers, the crazy kid). This recipe makes use of the Homemade Fajita Seasoning Mix I posted yesterday. The recipe for the mix will make enough for 10 batches of fajitas. Gr
We love main course salads around here. Rumbi’s Mango Chicken Salad as well as the fabulous Kneaders Turkey Cranberry Salad surface on my menu plan pretty regularly. A couple of my kids grumble about eating salad for dinner, but I try to politely remind them that we can’t eat Lasagna with Garlic Che
Layered with hearty potatoes, tender chunks of chicken, cheese and a smoky cream sauce this casserole is both delicious and satisfying. The crispy topping makes it all the more wonderful. You can assemble it in about 15 minutes time, then it bakes in the oven for 45 minutes. That’s a pretty easy way
Ok….allrighty then. Who has piles and piles of chocolate candy bars lurking around every corner……just waiting, hoping to have the chance to add themselves to your hips. I know I do and after all the sampling I did yesterday (everyone should get to sample some great treats on Halloween,

Ladies and Gentlemen, I feel like I’ve been living in a Halloween induced Chocolate Candy Bar/Homemade Doughnut coma. How about you?! Sugar and I have had our fill of each other. If I never see another chocolate bar for the next…say…well, really long time. Like 45 minutes, it will be nothing sho
Hold onto your hats, my friends. I have a fantastic, great (fast!) and delicious way for you to get dinner on the table. This recipe is finger licking good, I’m not kidding. Chicken Drumsticks are browned and then cooked in a sauce that is slightly spicy, a little bit sweet and full of savory goo
This is a recipe I make at least once a month. The kids really enjoy it….and my husband adores it. So, it gets put on the menu a lot. It’s great to make this time of year, as Stove Top Stuffing is usually on sale. I like to purchase a whole slew of boxes and keep them in my food storage. This c

I am always looking for new recipes for grilled chicken. Our family favorite is the Grilled Chicken Marinade I posted a couple of years ago (you can see it here). It calls for coke. Gotta love a recipe with a little coke in it!

This is the kind of recipe every home cook can appreciate. Especially on a busy day when a person finds him or herself face to face with a to-do list so long it could wrap its self all the way up to the moon and back. You know the kind of day I’m talking about, don’t you. The kind where you find you
Hello to all of you Easter loving, spring hopping, candy stashing readers. I hope the holiday weekend was all you hoped it would be. My family and I spent a very muddy and snowy weekend at Bear Lake. We had one egg hunt indoors, and one in the snow and mud! Who forgot to tell the weather man

I have a simple and tasty recipe for you today, the second day of my “Kid Friendly Recipe Week”.This is the standard tin foil dinner I make for my son Mark each and every month when he heads off to camp with his scout troop. It is a hearty, simple meal made up of pan fried chicken and potatoes that
Well guys and gals, it’s a stormy day along the Wasatch Front. I’d say a rather chilly day. A great day to make a batch of chili! This original recipe came from my great friend Tricia. I have changed it somewhat, using dried great northern beans instead of canned, and 1% milk instead of whipping
I love a good chicken fajita. Smokey grilled chicken, sauteed sweet bell peppers and onions all nestled into a soft flour tortilla. Top it all with a bit of sour cream, cheese and guacamole and life is a beautiful thing, ladies and gentlemen. If you have fresh garden tomatoes to toss in…well then,
