Asiago Cream Sauce Pasta with Chicken, Broccoli, and Mushroom

May 20, 2013 Main Meals

Asiago Cream Sauce. Sounds decadent, right? Indecently fattening. Unhealthy to the max. I mean…it’s cream sauce. Fear not. While I may go overboard occasionally on a truly decadent dessert, I like to keep it healthy at the main meal. There are just so many delicious and healthy ways to cook! And it’s a shame to invite powerhouse veggies […]

Southwestern Chicken Chili - Juggling With Julia

Sometimes I struggle over how to name a recipe. I actually waste precious energy worrying that the title won’t capture exactly what it is. No more. KISS all the way (that’s Keep It Simple, Stupid for you newbies). Yes, this is chili. There are southwestern flavors, beans, and green chilies. But there is also rice. Why? Because A) […]

Indian Grilled Chicken

June 8, 2012 General

Looks like I’ve found my new fave grilled chicken recipe! Move over, Crazy Lime Chicken , there’s a new dish in town!  Aromatic, savory, tender, and so, so tasty — it smells divine from the second you put together the marinade. Don’t be daunted by the long list of ingredients. Most are everyday spices and the rest is unexotic stuff […]

Lemon Feta Chicken

November 9, 2011 Quick and Easy Meals

I am always on the lookout for good chicken recipes that don’t use the grill, since ours is snowed in for a few months every year.  I find that many stove top and oven recipes leave the chicken dry. That is why one of my all-time favorite recipes is Chicken and Wine, because it is always flavorful […]

Creamy Potato and Chicken Soup

October 14, 2011 Chili/Soup/Stew

The downside to a great vacation is the equally un-great return to Life As We Know It. Wednesday morning came far too soon, especially since we were still on California time.  Looming ahead of me was the usual post-vacation stuff — luggage to unpack, laundry to do, a cat to sedate (honestly, she was so happy to see us I […]

Gotta Have It Salad

June 2, 2011 Poultry

I was a die-hard sandwich fan for a long time.  It was my go-to lunch every day, and I thought I’d never waver.  Big surprise, my tastes have changed.  What sandwiches were to me in my twenties and thirties is what a salad is now that I’m in my forties.  I crave them like crazy, and can’t go more than a […]

Southwestern Chicken Soup

May 18, 2011 Chili/Soup/Stew

I am fairly certain that Noah had a cook on his Ark, and that the guy’s specialty was soup.  How else could they have survived 40 days of this nasty weather, divine intervention or not?  I do not know what is going on in New England lately, but I sure didn’t expect to be wrapped in […]

Rainy Soup Day

May 6, 2011 Chili/Soup/Stew

So far May is living up to its reputation. On Wednesday, the showers came down in three separate downpours, soaking the landscape. Even still, the grass and trees got greener by the moment. And, you could practically hear the flowers go “Boing!” as they pushed their way up. With a croupy, feverish kid on the […]

Terrible Tuesdays

May 4, 2011 Main Meals

Tuesday has been called a lot of names: Black Tuesday, Super Tuesday, Fat Tuesday. Since September, for me, it has been Terrible Tuesday. It usually starts out just fine, with a great workout, a bit of laundry, and some lunch and playtime with my youngest after preschool. But, as the clock stikes 3:00 pm, it […]
