Jamaican Jerk Chicken Fajitas and Our Menu Plan

Doug’s become quite the fan of marinating for grilling this past Summer and even though the weather is getting chillier he still fires up the grill once or twice a week. He had planned on trying the World Harbors Jamaican Jerk marinade for quite awhile so this weekend Doug grabbed some at the store and […]

General Tso Chicken

We have been planning to share this General Tso Chicken with you for a couple weeks, but the first batch we made disappeared so fast that we didn’t even have time to take photos for you. So we tripled the batch this time to make sure, and ended up having to take a picture quickly […]

Sesame Chicken Satay: On A Stick Cookbook Giveaway

Chicken Lo Mein

Need a quick and easy meal with very little clean up? Stir-Fry is the way to go! I have been fixing stir-fry for years now, but had never tried Lo Mein before. Essentially it’s stir-fry with noodles. I first spotted this recipe in a Kraft Food & Family magazine, and was drawn to it with […]
