This is a basic recipe for chicken on the grill that never disappoints. If you like juicy, well-seasoned chicken, this recipe is for you. It is simple enough to appeal to children, while being classy enough to serve to company. And did I mention that it’s budget-friendly?
A couple of summers ago, I made an important discovery: my neglected slow cooker. Sure, I knew it was great for cooking all those “winter-y” foods (stews, soups, roasts, etc.), but somehow it always got pushed to the back of my cabinet and forgotten during the long, hot months. The very months that I should be using it to keep my kitchen cool.
My husband’s family first introduced me to this easy, economical, and versatile meal. We cook it on the grill, but it can also be cooked over a campfire (or in the oven in colder months). It’s a great way to use garden/seasonal veggies such as green beans, zucchini, onions, peppers, potatoes…and whatever else you want to throw in!

I whipped up some Hawaiian Pizza on Sunday, inspired by this recipe. It was a fantastic success — at least according to my family!
Guest post from Michelle of The Willing Cook Yeast is one of those ingredients that is becoming banned from more and more people’s diet lists, for various health reasons. I recently did some food allergy cooking for a friend who had about 50 items to which she was allergic, yeast being one of them. I wanted […]
Chicken Broccoli Rice Casserole is delicious, filling, frugal, and so freezer-friendly! If you freeze the bags flat, you can store them on their side like filing folders to fit a lot in a small freezer. Did you do any freezer cooking over the past two days? If so, I’d love to see the results of […]
This recipe is so flexible and forgiving; we adapt it based upon what we have on hand and what we get on sale. It’s been a favorite of ours for many years!
Looking for a delicious but super simple chicken recipe? This World’s Easiest Marinated Chicken Recipe is it. I’m pretty sure you can’t beat it in simplicity. Best of all? Since salad dressing is often on sale for less than $1 per bottle, you probably have some of it in your stockpile most of the time. […]
We love lasagna at our house. But I rarely buy lasagna noodles to make it because there aren’t as many sales and coupons available for lasagna noodles as there are for spiral and rotini noodles do.
So, a number of years ago, I re-did our regular lasagna recipe substituting spiral/rotini noodles for lasagna noodles and dubbed it “Lasagna Casserole”. It’s become a staple recipe at our home and it’s one of the first things I consider making when I find marked-down cottage cheese at Dillon’s.
Back when we were first married, we just left the meat out of this recipe, since it wasn’t in our budget. We like it better with meat these days, but it’s still hearty as a meatless casserole.
