Balsamic Cream Chicken with Mushrooms and Onions

[This recipe was originally posted in conjunction with the Meijer ad week of 1/27/13 - 2/2/13]

I pin a lot of recipes, and I even try some of them!  This recipe is one of the few that have been repinned to my "Made and Loved" board.  Not every recipe makes the cut, but this one was so good that I wanted to make it again the following week!  My sad photography skills do NOT do this chicken any favors.  But just trust me on this one.  (Or you can check out a better picture at the site of the original recipe.) The chicken was tender, and the sauce was full of delicious in, upscale-Italian-restaurant-delicious-flavor!

Oven-Roasted Italian Redskin Potatoes

[This recipe was originally posted in conjunction with the Meijer ad week of 1/27/13 - 2/2/13]

This potato dish is ridiculously easy, and the results are ridiculously delicious.  Slow-roasting the potatoes means that the Italian flavor is perfectly crisped onto the outside of each bite, and the center is perfectly cooked without any hint of mushiness.  These potatoes hog the oven for awhile, so they're best served alongside any meat that is grilled or cooked on the stovetop or in the crockpot.

Nothing new

No new recipe or Round-up this weekend.  I haven't even looked at the Meijer ad yet, sorry!

Have a good weekend,

One Year

I logged into my blog today, thinking "I think it's pretty close to a year ago that I started this thing."  I checked the date of my first post, and found that it was, in fact, exactly one year ago today.

Slow Cooker Beef Enchiladas

[This recipe was originally posted in conjunction with the Meijer ad week of 1/13/13 - 1/19/13]

We love (mild) Mexican dishes, and recently I decided to try out a slow cooker version.  I loosely based my recipe on this one I found on the Taste of Home website.  It's completely customizable according to your family's tastes.  My kids (and sometimes myself!) prefer a more mild flavor, but you can kick up the heat by adding and changing up ingredients, as you'll see below.  Spend a few minutes layering this in the morning, and you won't have to think about dinner again until it's time to sit down!

Recipe Round-up (Meijer Ad 1/6/13 - 1/12/13)

Ready to start off the new year with some menu-planning?  Here's what you can make with what's on sale at Meijer this week:

(and yes, I'm still using the "I'm in a hurry" of these weeks I'll have time to type out all the sale ingredients again!)

Pesto-Stuffed Tomato Bites

(This recipe was originally posted in conjunction with the Meijer Ad week of 1/6/13 - 1/12/13)

These appetizers pack a lot of flavor into a single bite!  I'm not gonna lie, they take awhile to put together...but the recipe makes a lot of tomato bites, and their amazing taste makes them worth the effort.
