Gluten Free Chicken Pot Pie

I was just going through all my photos and realized that I have made so much these last few weeks that I haven’t shared with you all. So be prepared, I may be bombarding you with recipes – good and bad ones.

This is one that’s been in the work for quite sometime. Once I wrapped my head around it there was nothing to it. The crust was super simple and the filling was delicious. In fact, I made so much filling that we were just eating out of the pan while the pie was in the oven.

There are a few things I would probably change on this one. The crust was probably a little too done! So I would reduce the baking time. Keep an eye on it in the oven and when the crust begins to turn gold brown go ahead and take it out. Really, all you are doing is cooking the crust. Everything else is already cooked through.

Again, this is one of those recipes that you can take and make your own. Add some different herbs and spices.

I used my Instant Pot to cook the chicken breasts in. I love the Instant Pot because I throw the chicken in along with some herbs and chicken stock turn it on for 12 minutes and forget about it. Come back and it’s done. Read More


Comfort Food – Chicken Alfredo

Seriously, when I think comfort food I think chicken alfredo or just fettuccine alfredo! Alfredo sauce is the most warming and inviting sauce there is. It’s smooth creamy texture and the flavors…..who can resist those flavors. I will be honest. It’s been awhile since I have fixed chicken alfredo for my family. We love it, but for whatever reason, I just haven’t thought to fix it lately.

Last night when I was contemplating what to fix for dinner, well I guess late afternoon, and no I am not a meal planner, I’ve tried that and it doesn’t work for me!! Anyway, it was either General Taso’s Chicken or Chicken Alfredo! My husband looked at me as though I was insane, how could I be contemplating anything, when you are thinking of fixing chicken alfredo you just fix chicken alfredo! There’s no question, I guess. I should say though, tonight’s dinner is General Taso’s Chicken. I will let you know how that turns out. Back to alfredo!  Read More


Late Night Dinners and Christmas Decor

Lately, things have been incredibly busy. My kids seem to have something going on every night, and I have totally failed in planning ahead on dinner making!

I have had a hard time lately keeping up with laundry, cleaning, and everything else, including sleep. So my dinner planning has gone out the door. I believe the girls are tired of my saying “You can eat whatever you can find and put together yourself!”

I am hoping though things will slow down and get back to normal. The Christmas decorations are up, somewhat. I say somewhat because I feel like I am lacking in decor this year. I don’t know if I’m tired of the Christmas decor I have or what, but I am feeling the need to visit my favorite antique store and see what they might have to spruce up the place a bit. I love antiques and I love visiting my favorite antique store!!! So I am thinking of popping in there this week and seeing what I can find!  Read More
