One Skillet Lemon Chicken with Rice

Posted by on Dec 27, 2019 in blog | Comments Off on One Skillet Lemon Chicken with Rice

It’s been a crazy week. Not only because of the holidays but with Christmas being on a Wednesday, I feel like my schedule is getting thrown off for two and a half weeks! Today is a Friday, but it feels like a Monday because I spent yesterday cooking for the week, which I usually do on Sunday… The good news about spending yesterday cooking for the week, though, is I get to bring you this delicious one-skillet dinner: Lemon Chicken and Rice. This has actually been a go-to recipe of mine for a while, but I have been refining it (more lemon, subbing olive oil for the butter, and adding spinach). Today, I finally feel like it has been refined enough to share it with...

Mini Spaghetti Nests

Posted by on Dec 19, 2019 in blog | Comments Off on Mini Spaghetti Nests

One of my favorite childhood memories from the holidays was helping my mom bake and cook. From cookies for our neighbors to dinner on Christmas Eve, I was able to get my hands dirty and create something delicious. It was such a special time that led to my passion for cooking and baking later. Today I have brought you a recipe that is fun to make with your kids this holiday season (or whenever!), and even more fun for your kids to eat. It’s like a mini dinner packed into a muffin shape. Enjoy these spaghetti nests with a dash of Mama Jess Garden Organic Pasta Sauce. Mini Spaghetti Nests 2019-12-19 12:05:12 Yields 24 Write a...

Crockpot Sweet Potato Chili

Posted by on Dec 12, 2019 in blog, Uncategorized | Comments Off on Crockpot Sweet Potato Chili

Winter is coming…and we are prepared! The goal: to bring you an easy crockpot recipe to keep you warm during these cold, cold evenings. This recipe is straight from Courtney at @ALifeFromScratch (follow her on Instagram for more amazing recipes!) and it is our new favorite way to enjoy healthy, comfort food at the dinner table. We love this recipe because, while it is vegetarian, it doesn’t mean that you have to miss out on the traditional flavor and heartiness of chili. If you’re looking to add a bit more protein, I recommend browning some ground beef and adding it to the crockpot. We will definitely be enjoying this one again!  Xoxo, Claire and...

Chicken Parmesan Roll-Ups

Posted by on Dec 4, 2019 in blog, Uncategorized | Comments Off on Chicken Parmesan Roll-Ups

Some of the best things are made by accident. The Post-It Note. The Microwave Oven. Even Chocolate Chip Cookies. Yes, I looked these up to make myself feel like I am in better company because today’s recipe was an accident…a delicious accident.  It was supposed to be a Pizza Stuffed Chicken Breast. But then I didn’t realize that I bought chicken tender cutlets instead of chicken breast. At this point, they were going to be Chicken Pizza Roll-Ups. Then I forgot to add on the pepperoni. So, here we have Chicken Parmesan Roll-Ups. And let me tell you, they will stay on the menu. But to be honest, anything that includes Mama Jess Sauce is delicious, accident and...
