Since we moved to Texas, I’ve been feeling as if I need to up my ante when it comes to sauce recipes.  We’ve been busy familiarizing ourselves with our community and the local businesses, many of which happen to be taco restaurants.  I think in a 5-mile radius of our home there is one on every other corner (okay, I may be exaggerating a bit..but not much!).  The pickiest taste-buds this side of Jupiter live in my home though so I need to do a bit of improvising.  I’d love to make dishes that incorporate a sauce that has a ‘Tex-Mex’ flavor, but my family hears ‘Tex-Mex’ and runs for cover.

Bacon Wrapped Brown Sugar Glazed Chicken

Bacon Wrapped Brown Sugar Glazed ChickenBecause of my family’s picky palates, I tend to alter a lot of recipes.  It’s rare that I make something ingredient for ingredient in a recipe but every once in a while I find one that I KNOW is going to be a winner just as it’s written.  This is one of those recipes.

It comes from the book Everyday Confetti, that I reviewed in January.  Folks I’m telling you, it’s full of recipes that will become favorites just like this one.  PLUS it has tons of ideas on how to make an ordinary day… something worth celebrating.

Leftovers Pot Pie

We had so many leftovers from the holidays that I was getting desperate for new ways to fix them.  I found a wonderful Pot Pie recipe in a book I’ll be reviewing here on the blog in a few days called Everyday Confetti.

The nice thing about the recipe is that it has great bones to it.  The pie crust is about the only thing you really won’t change – but the insides you can make all your own.

Dinner, Naturally – Chicken Broccoli Spaghetti

Going grocery shopping can often be overwhelming.  There are so many choices and so many brands.  What’s so great about living where we do is that from boxed goods to dairy and frozen foods to meat, we as consumers have the ability to choose what is best for our families when buying ingredients for meals.

It’s refreshing to see companies, like NatureRaised Farms® brand, committing to “Doing What’s Right, Right from the Start.”
