  I have mentioned before that my children are much more adventerous eaters than I ever was at there age.  In fact they are more adventerous than I am at my age now!  In fact it was my children who introduced me to my first Indian food on one of my trips to Provo, Utah.  We had dinner at the Indian Palace in downtown Provo and it was delicious!  I think I might just like anything if I could wrap it up and eat it in fresh naan bread!!

Teriyaki Chicken Bento Box with Dipping Sauces #HorizonB2S

Jazz up your back to school lunch selection with a teriyaki chicken bento box and 3 different dipping sauces

We’re a little late to the game here in Oregon and school doesn’t start until after Labor Day. My college girl starts school next week too. Back to school means back to fixing school lunches. When I was in school I always took my own lunch to school. It might have had something to do with the fact that I was a very picky eater and through elementary school and junior high I think I took a peanut butter and jelly sandwich for lunch every day! Every day! If I [Continue Reading…]

So when KRAFT asked [Continue Reading…]

Today I’ve got another yummy slow cooker meal for you.  Bless my slow cooker.  My only regret about my slow cooker is that I didn’t use it more when my kids were young.  What was I thinking?  It really is a mom’s best friend when it comes to getting a yummy, hot meal on the table at night. Today we’re playing with some fun flavors.  This is a Mexican inspired dish and uses chipotle chile peppers in adobe sauce and cumin for lots of great flavor.  I love the smoky [Continue Reading…]

Curried Coconut Chicken

Curried Coconut Chicken

We’ve been on a bit of a dairy free/gluten free trial diet at our house to see if it will help with some digestive issues my husband is having.  As you know this is not new territory for us as our daughter Cali is also dairy free/gluten free but we usually only cook that way when she is home for a visit.  For the last few weeks it has been a daily  thing at our house and may become permanent if it makes the difference we are hoping for. I [Continue Reading…]
