Sautéed Carrots

If you are looking for a quick and easy vegetable side dish, then this is it. Slice the carrots, sauté them on the stove, add butter and herbs, done. You can’t get much easier than that. These carrots are a great side dish for almost any meal, like turkey, ham, or pork chops. This was the first recipe that I made on Thanksgiving morning because it was a quick one to complete and get checked off my list. Also, you can pop them in the microwave for a bit and they reheat beautifully. Sautéed Carrots Recipe(Makes 6 servings) Ingredients: 2 …

Pumpkin Pie for Two

This Thanksgiving looks different for us. It will be a quiet weekend for two instead of a hectic (but wonderful) weekend visiting families. Even if we can’t be together with our families, we will stay connected through the recipes that came from our loved ones (and of course video chat). I told my husband that I didn’t care what we ate for Thanksgiving dinner. Seriously, mac and cheese and chicken nuggets would do.

Slow Cooker Taco Chicken Chili

Chili season is in full swing and I’ve got a new recipe for you. I don’t use a slow cooker often and by that I mean that we use it for one recipe, pea soup. So I’m trying to use it more for other recipes, which is where this taco chicken chili recipes comes in. The best part about this chili is that you don’t have to touch raw chicken. You put it, along with all of the other ingredients into your slow cooker and let it do the dirty work. I love that this chili option has chicken instead …
