Fried onion baked chicken
Fried onion baked chicken

I found this fancy pants recipe from Iron Chef Geoffrey Zakarian…it’s his finest dish that he creates. Please insert the laughing, squinty-eyed emoji here because this is so far from the truth.  Where’s a buzzer sound when you need one?! Some of you may be saying, “who the heck is Geoff Zakarian?” Or “what is an Iron Chef?!” Well the reason I can reference GZ is because I love to watch cooking shows! Why?! No clue because I don’t think I’m going to bake one of their dishes…ever. It takes them 5 minutes to cook […]

Quick breakfast option just for you!
Quick breakfast option just for you!

Yes, yes, yes, we’ve all heard it before…”breakfast is the most important meal of the day,” (please imagine me saying this in a very nerdy voice).  Let’s be honest…sometimes I don’t have time to sit down and eat breakfast, so I sure as heck don’t have time to go in and MAKE breakfast.  Now that I’m on quite a few medications that have to be taken as soon as I get going in the morning and they require food to be taken with them, then I can’t escape breakfast.  I needed an option!  I have […]

Fancy pants dinner!
Fancy pants dinner!

Look, me and the kitchen are not besties.  I do my best, and I have drastically improved; truthfully I just don’t really enjoy it.  I wish I did!  If I could create something amazeballs in a reasonably quick amount of time and not have a massive mess to clean afterwards, then maybe I’d be more friendly with cooking.  It drives me crazy when I spend an hour plus on a meal, I make a big mess, it takes us 10 minutes to eat it, and it takes me another hour to clean it up.  Uhh…I’ll […]

Mommy’s Sippy Cup
Mommy’s Sippy Cup

Yes, I’m posting this in the middle of the day.  No, I’m not drinking in the middle of the day…at least not today.  No judgement here if you are lushing it up by the pool; if anything I’m jealous!  A drink now and then is good for us, and we all need a sippy cup for that drink!  I like to fill mine with wine…or Jesus juice as the RHOD lovingly refer to it.  I prefer a good white wine that’s either a pinot grigio, riesling, or moscato.  I recently discovered a California white white by […]

Asian Coleslaw- E.A.S.Y.
Asian Coleslaw- E.A.S.Y.

I am very aware that I am not the best person for you to take cooking advice from, BUT I do know that I have a few dishes that are so easy and so good.  I feel obligated to share them with you because it’s nice to have a simple, go-to dish.  I make this almost anytime we host a party or need a “green” side dish.  It’s also really good as leftovers, and this is coming from a gal that doesn’t eat leftovers.  I’m not even sure that this picture does this justice, but […]

I’m feeling good, so I’m cooking dinner!
I’m feeling good, so I’m cooking dinner!

What?!  Cooking?!  Truth be known that this is something that has been coming off of my “Must Do” list lately.  When I am on my chemo meds, I am not interested in cooking because I’m not really interested in eating.  I eat because I have to eat with my meds, but nothing particularly tastes good. Beforehand, I got pretty good about making dinner consistently on nights that Mike and I would both be home…then the whole news that “cancer is back” came, and I was fine with taking cooking of my To Do list.  I […]

Slicin’ a Melon…literally!
Slicin’ a Melon…literally!

Okay, so I am not a natural in the kitchen.  In college, I messed up Easy Mac in our sorority house kitchen.  Sad, but true.  I was very upfront with Mike when we were dating and told him that I didn’t cook or clean.  I have willingly improved in the kitchen, but stick happily being terrible at cleaning.  My boys like watermelon (usually…I’m not sure why some weeks they love it and then a switch flips and they won’t touch it, but that may be a kid thing), but watermelons are so big and juicy and […]
