Pineapple Barbeque Chicken Wings


It’s almost tailgating season.  Ahhh…fall.  Football.  Grilling in a field. Cool air, hoodies, and…football.  Did I say football already?  Yes. Football. For a girl, I am all about game day.  College football, though – I’m not really into the NFL.  Except for my baby, Colt McCoy.  Sweet little thing, all grown up now.  I hope […]

Hawaiian Islands Chicken Pasta…and a Giveaway!


I am a creature of habit.  Change?  I say I love it…and I kind of do.  But it’s also just not something I am very good at implementing myself. Even with pasta. As an ambassador for Dreamfields Pasta, I am often challenged with a new recipe to create using pasta. You’d think that’s easy, but, […]

Buffalo Chicken Pizza Crescent Rolls


I can not fathom that it is almost Christmas.  Can. Not. I swear, Seven just went back to school.  Right?  And here we are, putting up the tree, hanging stockings, juggling Christmas parties.  It’s…well, it’s just plain overwhelming is what it is. Although I am freaking out a bit about it, I do have a […]

Fajita Grilled Chicken Stuffed Tacos

OEP - grilled-chicken-taco

I do fun things sometimes.  Like, get paid to make tacos.  No joke.  Old El Paso paid me to make tacos. I like that. You know why?  Because tacos made at home  you can put whatever you like into.  Lots of chicken, or lots of cheese, or lots of pico.  Or for me, lots of […]

Raisin Walnut Chicken Salad


I am a huge fan of chicken salad, especially on a croissant.  The buttery, flaky bread paired with the creamy chicken salad? Die.  Add in some crunch, from walnuts and celery, and some chew, from raisins? Winning combination. A few months ago I went to a local bakery where they make an incredible chicken salad, […]

Ranch Chicken Wings with Buffalo Dipping Sauce


I love chicken wings. All kinds of chicken wings, really, but I prefer the ones that aren’t all goopy.  You know – goopy.  The kind that get you ridiculously messy just by picking one up.  Sure, I’ll still eat that kind of wing – they’re delicious – but I’d really prefer the drier variety.  And […]

Southwest Stuffed Tortilla Lime Chicken Breast


Stuffed Chicken Breast. Why do I not do this more often?  Why don’t I just stop, and think, and remember…stuffed chicken breast is easy, it’s quick, it’s delicious. I always seems to forget those facts. It took being contacted by Old El Paso to make me put on my thinking cap, and come up with […]

Greek Chicken Pasta Salad with Feta and Herbs, from Liz at The Lemon Bowl

Greek Chicken Pasta Salad

I’m thrilled to be guest posting for Susan today. We had the opportunity to meet face-to-face last year during the Ohio Dairy Adventure. Let me tell you –it doesn’t get more intimate that milking cows at 5AM with your fellow bloggers! We had a blast and it was great to finally meet the spunky lady […]

BBQ Chicken Legs and Roasted Potatoes {And a Giveaway!}


It’s rare that I talk about grilling and meat here.  Sorry about that.  I still consider grilling to be a man’s job.  Very sexist of me, I know. It’s just the way I grew up. But, the secret is, men love to grill. And I love to eat.  So, give the man some chicken, a […]
