Shoyu Chicken

If my children had one “go to” meal that they could eat every week, it would be this one. I am not sure what it is about this chicken, but folks absolutely LOVE it. It has a salty sweetness and the ginger adds a unique savor to the dish. I hope it will become a family favorite of […]

Kung Pao Pork

This is a wonderful, flavorful dish that I love to make. I use a cast iron wok which really helps, but a cast iron or other heavy fry pan will work as well. The combination of vegetables, peanut butter and spice is fantastic! You can substitute chicken for the pork as well.  I hope you […]

Chicken Terrifica

I made this sauce up one day and it was so good that I called it terrific. I mean, it is so amazingly good that I could probably eat it on shoe leather and it would be a treat!  I served it over chicken, but I think you could use steak or pork chops as […]

Chicken Noodle Soup

When the weather turns cold I love to put on a pot of soup. Just the smell of a simmering soup warms the soul and brightens the spirits. One of the easiest and most comforting is good-old chicken noodle! It is really hard to beat. For an added treat, try our Kansas influence and serve […]

Skillet Lasagna

This easy, flavorful dish really moved up on my list of favorite one-pan meals. The sauce, meat and cheeses make a wonderful combination.

Thai Noodles with Chicken 1 lb. […]

Grilled Chicken Fajitas

Sizzling fajitas are so good! Hot off the grill, the aroma is something magical. When you combine the chicken with bell peppers and onions your have a backyard meal that is to die for. Grilled Chicken Fajitas 1/4 c. canola oil 3 T lemon juice (I think next time I’d try lime juice) 2 tsp. […]

Lumberjack Breakfast Sandwiches

I had the opportunity to cut down a 20′ pine tree at my daughter’s home the other day. We cooked some wonderful breakfast sandwiches to give us the energy to get started. They turned out awesome and were so easy, a real “manly” sandwich. Nothing better than breakfast in the back yard! Lumberjack Breakfast Sandwiches […]

This is such an easy and delicious side dish for any outdoor meal. It is so easy to do in a cast iron fry pan on your camp stove. I love the way fresh green beans cook up, they are so good! Steamed Green Beans 4 – 5 slices thick bacon, diced and cooked 1 […]
