This sticky and delicious grilled Grilled Turkey Leg Recipe is reminiscent of the infamous turkey legs at state fairs – perfect for Fathers Day! The last time I was at Disney World, I noticed people walking around with these gigantic “Jumbo Turkey Legs.” Evidently it’s a thing. I don’t usually enjoy eating meat off the bone, but I do...

Baked Lemon Chicken Recipe

A few years ago, we gave up cable in an effort to trim some monthly expenses from our budget. There are only two channels we really miss. My husband and son miss ESPN terribly. Me? I miss the Food Network. When we had cable, there were several shows I had set to record every day, but...

Thai Chicken Lettuce Wraps

My latest culinary discovery is the Thai Chicken Lettuce Wrap. Actually, it’s not a new discovery. I’ve been ordering this dish at The Cheesecake Factory for years, but I never tried to make it until a few weeks ago. I’ve been receiving the chicken share from our CSA for the past few months, and most of the cuts...

Caribbean Jerk Chicken Rice Stir

We are huge fans of rice in my family, especially since I started eating gluten-free a few years ago. We like all kinds of rice — white, brown, basmati, jasmine . . . You name it, we eat it.

Leftover Turkey Soup Recipe with Lemon & Pasta

A few days ago all we could think about was getting our hands on some turkey. Then we feasted, and now we can’t wait to get at the leftovers.  I know some people who cook their own turkey even if they are going to someone else’s house just so they can have leftover turkey at...

Tuscan Lemon Chicken #RealFoodRecipes

Tuscan Lemon Chicken is a recipe from Ina Garten that our family has loved for years. Ina uses a whole chicken, which she splits and flattens. I’m so not about hacking into a whole chicken, so I adapted the recipe for boneless skinless chicken breasts, thankyouverymuch. It is still moist and flavorful and delicious, and I...

Paleo Recipes: Chicken Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

I’ve said time and time again that I’m trying to adopt a more paleo-friendly way of eating, and it never seems to stick. Our eating habits really get ingrained in us, don’t they!!!? Moving to more of a real food diet wasn’t a big stretch for me. Even though I’d gotten into some bad eating...

Crockpot Chicken Curry

I got this recipe from Liz at The Lemon Bowl. I’ve never been big on curry and Indian style foods, but for some reason this sounded like the perfect weeknight meal. We’ve had it twice, and my husband and I love it. We would eat it once a week. The kids are mixed. My son...

Tequila Lime Chicken: A Summer Grilling Recipe

The weather is getting cooler, but there’s still plenty of grilling time left. I don’t know about you, but I tend to grill out until it drops below freezing. This Tequila Lime Chicken recipe is another Ina Garten favorite. I swear, that woman couldn’t steer you wrong if she tried. I have never had a recipe...
