Chicken Soup with Orzo
Chicken Soup with Orzo
If you’re like me, you keep your eye out for crock-pot recipes that can be thrown together in a hurry. There are plenty that I’d like to try, but my busy schedule doesn’t always allow me to do a lot of preparation. I’m often tossing ingredients into a crock pot before bedtime to cook the next day or I’m hurriedly throwing things together before I walk out the door in the morning. For me, browning meat is an additional step that takes time and effort. It’s much easier for me to prepare recipes that are simply “load and go,” no precooking necessary.
  • Enjoy a barbecue — burgers, salad and s’mores
    Nothing says summer like a backyard barbecue. Summer staples like burgers, cucumber salad and s’mores taste even better when enjoyed from the comforts of home. 
  • Some comfort dishes go with fond memories of home
    Growing up we had a screened-in, three-season porch in my childhood home on Terrace Drive in Carroll. This porch was used for many things. My mom used to sit and read while I watched the old black and white TV or played with my dolls and stuffed animals. I even hosted a few slumber parties on that porch. 
  • One-pot pasta: Easy-to-make, complete meals
    At the end of a hectic day, the last thing you want to do is haul out a bunch of pots and pans, cook a complicated meal and still have to wash a pile of dishes and put them away. 
  • Busy time calls for quick, easy recipes
    Let the busy season begin! From ball games, to music concerts to end-of-the-year activities, spring is a busy time. I have been busy at my school in the evenings helping with our first school musical, fine-arts night and our music program and have had less and less time to get dinner on the table. 
  • Raising the bar for sweet treats
    Bars are simple to make and easy to take with you on the go. They are the perfect dessert to celebrate any occasion or anytime you need a treat. 
  • Southwestern suppers —  easy to make, sure to be a hit
    When you ring the dinner bell, your family will come running if you serve up a Southwestern supper. Why not make it easy on yourself with just a few simple steps? 
  • Add new flavors to your poke-cake recipes
    As summer approaches, a poke cake is a perfect dessert to beat the heat. Instead of the usual strawberry poke cake branch out with a new flavor or two. Citrus flavors are all the rage in drinks and desserts as they’re tart, yet refreshing. 
  • Cake and pudding —  an unbeatable team
    When the kids ask you, “What’s for dessert?” they will be ecstatic when you respond, “Cake AND pudding!” Whether it’s cake or pudding for dessert, it’s always a winner. If you combine the two, you’re sure to have plenty of happy campers. 
  • These easy recipes really take the cake
    The popularity of poke cakes is undeniable. They are simple to prepare and big on flavor. Poke cakes come in any imaginable flavor and can be filled with pudding, sweetened condensed milk, and gelatin, to name a few. Strawberry poke cake with whipped cream on top is certainly one of the most common variations. 
  • Go garlic — for flavor, health benefits
    Garlic is a common ingredient in many different foods. The next time you prepare dinner, instead of reaching for the garlic powder, roast your own garlic cloves. Roasted garlic has a distinctive flavor and has many health benefits. 
  • Sweet ways to top off St. Patrick’s Day
    What better way to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day than with a festive and eye-catching dessert? Top off your Irish stew or corned beef and cabbage with a treat that will leave Irish eyes smiling. 
  • Fill up on energy — hearty stew
    Warmer weather is here, which means we will be on the move. Fill up with a hearty stew to give you energy to keep you going. 
  • Chicken cordon bleu: Elegant and classic
    What is there not to love about chicken cordon bleu? A breaded cutlet of chicken filled with ham and Swiss cheese is an elegant and classic dish. Its origins; however, do not go back as far as you might guess. 
  • Hop to it, prepare Easter treats
    The Easter Bunny will be hopping through town in less than a week. This year plan a scrumptious Easter feast your family will enjoy and also plan a little bit of springtime fun for the kids. 
  • Spicy soups: Warm comfort during winter’s big chill
    With spring still 25 days away and temperatures below freezing, we are all feeling a bit chilled on the inside. Turn up the heat with a pot of spicy soup to warm you from the inside out.
