Orzo in the making…

Soup is a comfort food for The Hubby and I try to have it for him as often as possible…but in Half Baked Land it is already getting warm outside so I am not in much of a soup mood, until I remembered a recipe I have been waiting to …

chicken chili? yes, please

The Hubby LOVES chili.  He loves it so much the very first party we ever had as a married couple (over 10 years ago) he made chili for 30 people with all the toppings…and everyone loved it.  Ever since then we have been making chili for lots of get togethers …

cute, mini & skinny meatloaf

I have been craving comfort food lately.  You know what I am talking about a cheesy hamburger macaroni bake, or maybe some loaded mashed potatoes  or even better how about a salisbury steak with a rich gravy…boy oh boy I could get myself in trouble with all those for sure.  As …

fajita skewers please…

Who is ready for grilling season…I AM!!  There is just something so great about getting outside and cooking over an open fire (or having The Hubby do it) and experiencing the great flavors that come with it.    It just seems to make everything taste better, even the stuff that …

Some of my most favorite dinners are those from my childhood and chicken tetrazzini is one for sure.  There is just something so good about pasta, chicken and a creamy sauce all cooked together in a casserole.  To be honest I am not sure if it was the actual dish …

takin’ it slow with pork chops

Happy Monday and Happy (day after) Valentines Day.  I hope your weekend was something to remember.  We had a busy one here in…my uncle came in for my Mammaw’s 89th birthday, we had a birthday party for her (recipes from the party will be coming soon), we played her favorite …

a memory remade for my love from veracruz

Do you and your love go out to eat on Valentines Day or do you stay home and enjoy a quite night without all the crowds.  The Hubby and I have done both, and we both agree staying home is really nice.  You can fix exactly what you want (like …

chicken parm on the skinny

Eating healthy doesn’t have to mean only salads and steamed veggies….casseroles can be a part of the menu as well, and this chicken parm casserole is a skinny but delicious dinner that everyone is sure to love.   I have made several chicken parmesans over the years, it is The …
