Chicken Parmesan Sandwiches

Yesterday, I bought a rotisserie chicken while grocery shopping and decided to dedicate the next few days to sharing recipes with my friends on dishes you can make quick and easy with the tried and true $5 bird from Walmart. Quick Tip: Shred your rotisserie chicken as soon as you get home from grocery shopping…

What I’ve Made With My Comically Small Tomatoes

Chicken, tomato, and spinach quinoa I used frozen quinoa, olive oil, my Tyson’s shredded frozen chicken (that I’m obsessed with), spinach, and sliced tomatoes. I sautéed the tomatoes first in a large pan with minced garlic and minced onion, and then tossed everything else in. I love this meal because it doesn’t take long to…

My Kitchen Lifesaver for Quick, Tasty Meals

(15 minute chicken noodle soup recipe at the bottom) I’d like to let y’all in on a little cooking secret of mine. Sometimes I don’t feel like making my own chicken. Honestly, it’s boring–and it takes a while. All the fun is in making the rest of the dish, not the chicken. Sometimes I don’t…

Everything but the Kitchen Sink Salad

I’ve been on a real salad kick lately and wanted to share this beautiful lunch I had recently. In my opinion, the darker the greens and the more colorful the salad, the better it is. Ingredients: Spinach and arugula Shredded cabbage Chopped carrots Diced boiled egg Shredded chicken Chopped red onions Sliced strawberries Sliced cucumber…

My Chicken Salad

Another rainy day calls for me watching Gilmore Girls on the balcony while eating chicken salad! I like to buy the pack of two raw chicken breasts at the grocery store and I’ll cook them both and freeze the second. This chicken is the frozen second breast! I make my chicken salad a little differently…

Makeshift Pico de Gallo Pizza

Last night I made tacos for my friends so I had a bit of leftovers that I didn’t want to go to waste. For lunch today, I particularly wanted to include the pico de gallo I made, because it was to die for–and only 4 ingredients to boot! The pico was just half an onion,…

Turns Out Homemade Pasta Sauce is Incredibly Easy and Delicious

If I had known I could make this dish in ten minutes, it would have been a staple dish during busy nights during the school year. It made for great leftovers too. I’ve made this sauce twice so far, once with penne and once with angel hair, and I’ve decided angel hair is my favorite…

I Tried The “Perfect Potato Soup Recipe”

Today was another stormy, icky day in Auburn so I was craving a warm, creamy bowl of potato soup. During the school year, I like to get a cup of Chicken Salad Chick’s loaded baked potato soup on cold or rainy days so I decided to give it a go in my kitchen. Ever since…

I Make The Best Chicken and Dumplings in The South

I’m here to apologize to y’all. And to y’alls mommas and grandmommas. Because I make the best chicken and dumplings in the south. My chicken and dumplings are so good that it’s almost July in Alabama and I still craved it hard enough to make. My chicken and dumplings are so good that one bowl…

Making Shrimp and Grits for the First Time

Shrimp and grits is a restaurant staple for me. Being from the Gulf Coast, I’ve had the pleasure of having it offered at many restaurants. Sometimes it’s amazing (The Fish House of Pensacola, keep doing you please) . . . and sometimes it’s just plain bad (Live Oaks of Auburn, you gotta fix that. Salt….
