This newly created 5-Ingredient Fall Pork Chop recipe was a huge hit with all of the Parker clan. The total time to make these chops clocks is under 30 minutes. I served them over Cauliflower Rice with Roasted Asparagus and Steamed Green Beans. The sage in it gives this dish an earthy fall flavor and would be good with a big bowl of my Pumpkin Soup as well.Read More
This week I’m trying to get back to some semblance of normalcy and I know I’m not the only one. There are still so many people trying figure out how to put the pieces back together after Harvey and Irma forged paths of destruction that will forever leave scars and tales of survival.Read More
Have you ever seen “quick and easy” cooking videos show up in your Facebook feed and thought, “I could totally make these!” only to find yourself halfway through the prepping realizing that it’s anything but easy and a whole lot more work than is shown in the 2 minute clips?
It happens to me all the time.
But because I have mad kitchen skills (not really), I’m usually able to find a work-around and turn it into something the family will eat and I would totally make again.Read More
This past weekend I thought I had it all figured out. I knew exactly what I was going to make for dinner and was feeling pretty good about it, especially because I had so much going on(what’s new about that?!). Until...I had to go to the store to pick up one of the main ingredients: zucchini.Read More
I’m a fan of food that can be eaten anytime, for any meal, especially since I skip the traditional breakfast most days. But I really like eggs, and egg dishes, like quiche or egg cups - meals usually served in the morning. So making a keto-friendly frittata, to be served for dinner, seemed only logical... and it was.Read More
I was watching the weather channel over the weekend, trying to get the pool report so I could schedule my Sunday accordingly, when I realized that people were actually still experiencing winter in a vast majority of the country.
I then started to see pictures of snow all over social media.
Snow! At the end of April?!Read More
Here we go... it’s time to start planning for 3-day weekends and summer barbecues. Over the next 6 weeks, I’ll be sharing some of my favorite meals-for-the-masses on the blog, so make sure to check back in when you're in need of a keto-friendly dish!Read More
It’s April (can you believe it?) and Spring has sprung for sure, at least here in Florida!
My favorite part, as with the beginning of each new season, is the excitement of looking around the grocery store to see what seasonal delights Spring has to offer.
Mother Nature did not disappoint.
Today, I’m sharing one of my favorite dishes to incorporate a lot of the veggies you may be seeing in your local stores, Chicken Stir-Fry.Read More
When I became a mom at 24, I knew I needed to do more than just reach the stove or bake cookies. I invested in cookbooks of all kinds. I watched shows like Martha Stewart to get ideas for healthy meals to feed my daughter as she started eating real food.
One of those shows ended up being the inspiration for my Chicken with a Kick recipe.Read More
It’s recipe day and boy, do I have something everyone will love.
Once upon a time, I used to make a casserole with chicken, broccoli, Ritz crackers and cream of chicken soup. It was one of those dishes that I’d serve the family whenever we were in need of some serious comfort food.Read More
It’s time for True Confessions: "Hi, my name is Heather. I got an Instant Pot for Christmas and it scared me."
Don’t get me wrong. I asked for one - the biggest one no less. I just had no idea how intimidating it would be. All of the buttons, gizmos, and instructions for safe-using sent me into shut-down mode. So instead of facing my fear of steam and high pressure cooking, I put all of the gadgets and manuals inside of the pot and proceeded to find a cabinet big enough for it to hide in.Read More
When I start planning my meals for the week, I look at what I’m cooking, the time it takes for the food to cook and whether or not I’m using my stove or oven. Timing food to come out together is a feat unto itself. This is another reason why this meal is a no-brainer. The chops cook on the stove while the broccoli is in the oven. Easy-peasy.Read More
