Chicken Teriyaki (pressure cooker)

As a working mom (gosh, sometimes I still don’t feel like I’m mature enough to be able to say that, but other days I feel so old🙃) the pressure cooker is my best friend. Here’s another recipe to share based on one shared by Well Plated blog. You can use any pressure cooker here. I…

BBQ Chicken Grilled Naan Pizza

As you all know, I’m always looking for new, fast, weeknight meals that the whole family loves. The other day, a Fine Cooking subscription showed up in my mailbox (so if you bought it for me, thank you!) One of the recipes in there looked good and my 3 year old pointed to it and…

Spiced Chicken with Pear/Cherry Chutney

You would think that with everything basically closed during COVID-19 Stay-At Home orders, we would have more time to make dinner. That is NOT the case. Basically the kiddos are climbing the walls and take more of our energy than ever… so I am continually looking for recipes that don’t require a lot of babysitting…

Skinny Chicken Parm aka "Pizza Chicken"

Want an easy weeknight dinner that is delicious with very little effort? This is for you! The hardest thing to do is to remember to thaw the chicken breasts the day before so they are ready to go. In this recipe the chicken is baked, not fried, hence, “Skinny”. And, since LV wouldn’t eat anything…

Crockpot Tomato Soup (seriously easy)

I love easy recipes. I love them more when they are delicious. And, I love them even more when I can proudly say that I’ve created the recipe myself after tweaking & refining it many times. This tomato bisque/soup is great for weeknights because the hardest thing you need to do to prep it is…

Bourbon Chicken & Quinoa

While this recipe is not an Instant Pot recipe, I use the Instant Pot to make the rice/quinoa that we eat with it. This is a recipe even my toddler will eat! And she can, because (unfortunately) this does not actually have any bourbon in it. But, after dinner, and bath time, and bed time…

NY Strip Steak – @ home, on a weeknight

I’d been wanting to use the Joule sous vide to make some steaks at home. Making steaks at home is not something we usually do. I can probably count one one hand the number of times I’ve cooked a steak in the last 3 years. Up till now, steak has always been one of those…

Chicken Tikka in the Pressure Cooker

While I was preparing tonight’s dinner I found myself using not one but TWO pressure cookers at the same time! Why does one need two pressure cookers? Well that’s the life of a KitchenGadgetJunkie. I’ve had my Fagor Rapid Express cooker for a while now and I use it pretty frequently. Then I learned of…

Presto! Pesto Chicken Packets

There is nothing I love more than a really quick weeknight dinner that seems like food for company. This recipe is simple, takes about 15 minutes to prep and ends up really “fancy”. (By “fancy” I mean, looks way more complicated than it really is). This is perfect for a BBQ with friends or any…
