Food For The Whole Family

When I got married at 21, I thought that I'd automatically become a sous chef; instead I ended up with a lot of limp vegetables and tough, chewy chicken. (And me crying in the corner while my husband graciously gnawed through the food that I gave to him.) Things have changed a little since then, and I'm slowly building a list of recipes that even I can master.

So for the ladies (like me) who don't easily find their way around the kitchen, this page is for you! Truly, if I can make these, so can you.

MAIN DISHES:
Baked Mac & Cheese - A delicious, not overly cheesy comfort food

Baked Chicken Nuggets - For the kid in you! A non-greasy and oh-so-tasty version of a childhood favorite!
Grilled Chicken & Veggie Kabobs - A great summer dinner with a crunch!
Turkey Stuffed Bell Peppers - I want to eat this everyday! A healthy, fun dinner option that packs a TON of juicy flavor. I used yellow and red bell peppers and both were delicious.
