Why can it be so scary to cook fish? I had my moments back-in-the-day where I was quite intimidated by fish. I cooked it so well done that it was as dry as shoe leather and tasted just as bad. After a lot of trial and error, it’s a staple in my menu plan. Fish is good for you and is a lighter dinner then meat, especially during the summer.

Sounds like a dream doesn’t it? t have never tried a meal delivery service before, however there are weeks where I am running back and forth across town or days when I’ve had such a nightmarish day at work that having a convenient recipe on hand would be awesome. So when the folks at Sun Basket contacted me to say that they would love to have me review their products and their meal delivery service, I readily said yes. And was even happier that I did once I looked at the weekly menu. WOW!

Super Bowl is just 10 days away and what are you making for the big game party? You want something that is easy so you don’t miss a single play (or a single commercial) so why not bust out the slow cooker?  My slow cooker gets the most work when I’m feeding a crowd since it frees me up to do other things such as eat and chat with friends and family. This 13-bean turkey chili starts with a soup mix, adds ground turkey, onion and seasoning to make a game day meal everyone will love.

Our past challenges have been super fun to do and this one was no different.

This month the ingredients were: Chickpeas & Honey! Whoa!

We are in the heat of the football playoffs and I am so excited about the Big Game. Although my favorite team didn’t even make the playoffs (in fact, I think they were the bottom of their division), Hubby’s did so we’re cheering them on with all the energy we have. And they won this past weekend… bonus! I love hosting football parties and Red Baron Thin & Crispy Pepperoni and Suprem varieties make it pretty easy to do.
