Garlic gravy and chicken


I have moments when I want to cook so much. Then there’s other moments when I drag my feet so much that cooking is out of the question.  Tonight, I wanted to cook.  I wanted something easy and this popped into my mind. I wanted something good. Unfortunately, I had an unwanted visitor from my past which totally ruined my appetite. I never understand people. It’s so weird. Enough about that though, it doesn’t even deserve acknowledgement.

I like this recipe, because it’s so simple. It makes it where I can multi task and it takes very little time. I used thin cut chicken breasts. It literally took 15 minutes and dinner was served. If you give this a try- let me know! I’d be interested to see how you like it. Coop LOVED it!

2 tablespoons canola oil

chicken pieces

salt and pepper

2 tablespoons chopped garlic

2 tablespoons all purpose flour

3/4 cups white wine

1 cup chicken broth

3/4 teaspoons dried thyme

2 tablespoons butter

Put oil in a dutch oven. Salt and pepper the chicken. Place in dutch oven and brown. Once browned remove from pan and place in a plate. Put garlic in pan until browned. Mix in the flour and stir. Put in the chicken broth. Once thickened, add back the chicken and pour juices into pan. Cover and cook until chicken is done all the way through. Add white wine and cook until thickened. Add thyme and butter. Serve.

Christmas Punch


Christmas Eve was so fun. We had my mom and dad, siblings, and their families over. I decided to try this punch recipe. It originally calls for Lime sherbet. Did yall know that if you don’t purchase this in advance it sells out like crazy during the holidays?? I did not. Next time, I’ll know. I ended up getting rainbow sherbet. It still tasted great. My mom and I liked it the most.

I was really impressed by how hubby participated. I didn’t expect him to do much though. He wanted to show his son that he could do anything though. I admire that about him. Like I revolve myself around them, he revolves his world around us. I just love him so much. He’s an amazing man. I’m so proud of everything he does and what he fights through.

I halved this recipe.

2- 2 liters ginger ale

46 oz pineapple juice

2 pints of sherbet


maraschino cherries

lime slices

lemon slices

Mix all together. Serve.




Rerun: Alfredo and Ham Tortellini


I recently bought tortellini from Schwan’s. I stuck it in the freezer. Later I bought some deli ham, because we were having a major snow storm and we had no idea if we’d have any electricity. We ended up not even needing the ham, so I made omelets and this pasta with it instead. I made this pasta a while back with a different kind of ham. When I used this deli ham, I couldn’t tell much difference in the taste. I also thought man if I threw some peas in this, or carrots…maybe both, it’d taste pretty good too. Next time I’m going to give it a try.

I wanted to give a little update….In Jan, we have another follow up appointment. We’ve noticed the open wound on his wrist is really healing up, but it’s still an open wound. We’re trying to be super careful, but we’re hoping we wont need to have a surgery again. If it is, it’ll be a tiny skin graft. We’d probably get to come home the same day, it’s that minor. I’d say the area to cover is maybe 1/4 inch x 1/4 inch…maybe even smaller than that now. He’s moved into new splints on his hands. This contraption is complicated to get off and on and if I don’t get it just right it really hurts his skin. It makes me feel upset when I do hurt him. I hate it. I also learned over Christmas just how delicate his skin really is. He was accidently hit with a fingernail during a Christmas Eve party and it cut him and we ended up needing wound care. I’m really trying to make things good though!

Ground Beef Noodle Bake — Frugal Hausfrau — My Meals are on Wheels

I always find myself day dreaming when I read the stuff My Meals are on Wheels shares or posts. I’ve had to officially add this to my too make list. When I make it I’ll post my own pictures! Yum Yum!

I’m not sure what made me think of this old-fashioned recipe…I’d call it comfort food. I don’t think I grew up on it, but it was always around at someone’s house. I remember making way back when I was a young Mom. I always called it Ground Beef Noodle Bake. I suspect it has roots… via […]

Review: Kraft

48387666_2404983346181918_8556751962433912832_n.jpgSweet teriyaki….sounds and looks so good. However, it wasn’t my favorite. Kraft should stick to just the BBQ portion of the sauce business. I just wasn’t incredibly impressed. Luckily it wasn’t horrible. Some people may love it, but the taste was just so off from what I know teriyaki sauce to be, that I just couldn’t get accustomed to it.

Have you tried this?


Rerun: Turkey


Ya’ll…I got a new turkey pan. I was so excited. It’s a cheap one, but it’s nice. It’s a T-fal pan. I bought it at Wal-mart while in a pinch. It was like 12 bucks. I have another roaster that I bought too, but I don’t have myself a rack for it yet. I can’t find on except or on Amazon. I’ll get me one of those soon. They don’t cost too much.

This turkey is a rerun turkey. Honestly, I make it pretty much every year. It’s a recipe by Alton Brown. I just love it. We’ve tried other turkey recipes and none of them are as good as this one. Everyone who eats it thinks it’s amazing. I made this for Thanksgiving. I know it’s super late getting this out here to you guys, but I’ve been really busy lately. For Christmas, we bought a smoked turkey and it just wasn’t the same. It was drier and tasty, but everyone was grumpy because they wanted this turkey instead. Have you tried it?
