Homemade Chicken Baby Food

Every doctor is different and will say it's okay to start your babies on poultry as early as 4 months. Our doctor gave us the thumbs up at 6 months. We get creative with our homemade baby food. I usually prep a few different veggies, a potato, a fruit, and a meat on Sunday's so that we can combine different things each day giving us many options...Read More

Lime Chicken Tacos

I was looking for a simple flavorful chicken for soft tacos and I found it in this dish. I found this recipe on Alllrecipes website and it has 4.5 stars with 1,586 reviews. “A lime chicken filling with vinegar, sugar, green onion, oregano and light seasoning makes these soft tacos citrusy-good and super easy to make!” You can use the chicken to make tacos, burritos, nachos, chicken salad, or lettuce wraps.

Grilled Chicken Prosciutto Melt


We had leftover imported prosciutto from a party and I wanted to come up with something creative to make with it. I made a crispy prosciutto and chicken pasta and then I thought about doing a grilled sandwich or Panini. My husband loves Chick-fil-A so I found one of his savory sauces in his special sauce drawer and thought it would be a perfect addition to this sandwich...

Growing up I would visit my best friend in the whole wide world at her house in La Verne. Around the holidays I remember her family working endless hours in the kitchen making tamales. I have never attempted to make them myself so Jen and I asked her Aunt Cathy and her mom if they would show us some of their tricks. Here are some helpful hints to making perfect tamales.

Alice Springs Chicken

I used to work at Outback Steakhouse and guests would always order the Alice Springs Chicken. “Grilled chicken breast and bacon smothered in mushrooms, melted Monterey Jack and Cheddar cheeses, with honey mustard sauce.” This never appealed to me but marrying a man who loves chicken and bacon, I knew he would enjoy this dish.
Honey Mustard Marinade:

1/2 cup Grey Poupon Dijon mustard

1/2 cup h...

Paleo Honey Mustard Crusted Chicken

If you don’t want Paleo-styled chicken, you can dredge the chicken in Italian bread crumbs or Panko Crumbs. I tried all 3 ways to see which one my husband liked better. I loved the paleo style best and he liked panko 1st and paleo-styled 2nd best.
4 (4-ounce) boneless, skinless chicken breast halves (remove fat)
3 tablespoons of whole grain Dijon mustard – Trader Joe’s

P.F. Chang’s Chicken Lettuce Wraps

While dining at our local P.F. Chang’s my mother in law wanted to get the chicken lettuce wraps for an appetizer. We both dove into them and nearly licked the plate clean. She wondered how we could get the recipe so I immediately went home to start the research. The very next day I was at Super King Market and Albertson’s stocking up on some ingredients that I didn’t have in my cupboard...

Milanesa Beef Chicken or Veal

My husband loves Milanesa. I have made this twice. Once with chicken and once with flat steak. They both came out fantastic. I have not tried it with the pasta and sauce but I’m sure it’s just as good. You can also use veal instead of chicken or beef. For vegetarians, maybe try eggplant. If you live in Southern California you can find something similar at Inka Trails in Claremont, CA or Coco Palm in Pomona, CA...
