This is legit the best sweet n sour chicken recipe! It was put on this blog many years ago and I've made it countless times all these years. My husband requests it often and my kids gobble it all down. I know you will feel the same. The sauce is perfect, not too sweet and not to tangy. Pepper and onions add the most delicious flavors with the sweet pineapple. Top it on rice and it's very filling and satisfying. The best part is its simple and fast. Weeknights become so busy! We are always . . .
When Des and I went to Disneyland last month one of our FAVORITE things we ate were the skewers at Bengal BBQ. Bengal BBQ is located right across from the Tiki Room and they serve the most delicious and fresh food. Let me tell you, it is such a welcomed treat after eating churros, corn dogs, and ice cream cones. I knew right away that I needed to re-create this at home. At the park we ordered Chieftain Chicken Skewer and the Safari Skewer. The Chieftan Chicken Skewer is a simple . . .

Hi there! Today we have an oldie but a goodie made new! For sheet pan week, we wanted to share a few fast and easy ideas to pull dinner off on busy nights. One of our favorites is open-faced sandwiches like this Grilled Chicken Pesto Sandwich. These come together with minimal prep and has the potential to make a lot for large families or groups.

I don't want to toot my own horn, but this recipe is GOOD. Each time I make it, every crumb is devoured. This burrito bowl has been my go-to meal prep meal as of late. It has been a lunch I have looked forward to, and I don't feel guilty about eating. BURRITO BOWLS FOR THE SOUL I want to tell you how this recipe came to be. About four months back, my then-2-year-old son was diagnosed with cancer. It was and has been a very trying time for my family. My little boy, Graham, has been in . . .
I was standing in my Grandmas kitchen when she said "Oh Desi, you gotta try this new recipe I got. You use RITZ CRACKERS and it's so good." She then went on to describe how to make this dinner in detail and so... Ritz Chicken was born. My grandma came from the generation that cooked, really cooked. I was always surprised when we would visit and be busy shopping, playing, exhausting ourselves! We'd come home and she would start cooking a big, hearty (delicious) meal for us! I remember . . .
Rumbi Island Grill was one of my favorite places to go in college. They made this amazing teriyaki rice bowl that I loved to get. Half steak, half grilled chicken, lots of fresh veggies, ride and beans. They had a teriyaki sauce that knocked it all out of the park. We don't lived by any of these restaurants anymore, so we often recreate this amazing teriyaki rice bowl at home. How to Make Teriyaki Rice Bowls I start by preparing my rice- it takes the longest to cook.After you have started . . .

Have you ever heard of Apricot Chicken?! It's amazing and you are going to want to give it a try. A few Sunday's ago I entertained my in-laws for dinner. It's always nice to have company over and give the nice dinnerware some use! I served this apricot chicken with veggies, fresh fruit and a few other small sides. The dinner turned out great. I doubled the recipe and cooked about 4 cups of rice. We had 6 adults and 4 children eating with plenty to go around. If we would have wanted seconds- . . .
Chicken Cacciatore is a dish that is perfect for a post farmer's market visit with all of it's fresh veggies and herbs. The dish is also fancy enough for company or a Sunday dinner, without all of the work! This meal is done from start to finish in about 60 minutes.
