Spicy Jalapeno Meatballs and Waffles

Are you still looking for things to serve on Game Day? Look no further.  You’ve found what you are looking for. Waffles are so IN right now.  Not just for breakfast, you know – but for dinners and lunches and snacks as well. From the classic diner to the top gastropub to the finest restaurant, […]

Pineapple and Peppers Sausage and Rice

I love dinners that take only a few minutes to make. That’s right…a few minutes. Sure, there are days when I want to drag our Julia Child’s Mastering the Art of French Cooking and set out on a roasted chicken endeavor, but those days are hard to come by.  Four hours to make dinner? Yeah, […]

Take and Bake Pizza…Papa Murphy’s

“Dear Susan, would you care to go have a pizza on us?” Pardon? Papa Murphy’s offered ME a night off from cooking, and wondered if I would be interested? Umm, yes? You see, I met the folks of Papa Murphy’s back in April, at a conference on the Pacific Coast.  Before moving to Texas, I […]

Pineapple Barbeque Chicken Wings

Dear Parents, I know you may be hunkered down in your master bedroom closet, the door locked and no light on, save for the tiny glow of your cell phone. I promise, I will not make that phone chirp, so bear with me.  We have a few minutes until your child finally finds you. Here’s […]

Spinach and Almond Topped Chicken

I love when recipes just come together, are so, so easy, and turn out to be the kind of delicious that requires you to add said recipe to your go-to repertoire. Good stuff. Take, for example, this chicken recipe I created for Dole. Spinach and Almond Topped Chicken. Healthy, full of great flavors, and incredibly […]

Easy Buffalo Chicken Salad

This recipe name may have you thinking it’s going to be complicated.  Having to make a sauce, and cook, and chop, and well, spend time in a kitchen. But that’s where you are wrong. This salad couldn’t be simpler, thanks to Al Fresco, a company that asked me if I’d like to test out a […]

Strawberry and Rosemary Chicken and Waffles

I am a chicken and waffles freak.  Seriously…I can’t take it.  If I see it on a menu, it’s mine.  I’ve had just about every variety – many of which were in Las Vegas – and every version excites me. For this recipe I created for Krusteaz, I combined a couple of my favorite chicken […]

Low Carb Buffalo Chicken Pizza

Don’t run off, y’all.  Low Carb does not mean Low Delicious.  This pizza…it’s fantastic.  I wish I could call it No Carb, as it practically is, but I wanted to be honest.  The very few grams of carbs come from the ranch dressing – which are null once spread out across the entire recipe, and […]

Buffalo Chicken Soup…Low Carb

I could have called this Low Carb Buffalo Chicken Soup, but, I went with Buffalo Chicken Soup, and added the little disclaimer of it being a Low Carb recipe. Why? Well, I know ME.  And had I been on the search for a great chicken soup recipe once upon a time and was confronted with […]
