Just last week my mother-in-law came to visit us. It was more than a pleasure having her stay with us, since she lives so far away. While she did not take a break from helping out any way she could, the only time she relaxed was to enjoy a home cooked meal. That being said, I thought pork ribs would be a fabulous way for her to enjoy the taste of Texas. Although, since she doesn’t have any sort of sweet tooth, I made these ribs deliciously savory.


From time to time, I get these immense cravings for juicy burgers…I mean who doesn’t, they are just soo good. Ordinarily, I would probably stop by a burger joint, in between errands, to satisfy my craving. Although, sometimes burger pitt stops are accompanied by sugary sauces, french fries, and maybe a soda…so I decided to fulfill my needs in my own kitchen.


Growing up, chicken dinners were very popular in our household. My mother’s go-to chicken fix, was a very kid friendly box of Shake-n-Bake. It was simple, you shake it and pop it in the oven, and bam…crispy chicken. While her famous crispy chicken was crispy, the skin always tasted best, and the rest was mediocre, to say the least.



So, lately my posts have been on the hearty/meaty side, well, because time has not been of the essence. I did not want to absolutely neglect blogging, so I decided to capture ‘blog-worthy’ dinners and share them with everyone. In our household, dinner, is incomplete without a  meaty counterpart, my husband would be astray if I tried to feed him solely vegetables.

Chili makes such a warm comforting meal on a cold day. Served steamy hot with the smoky aroma of delicious chili spices, the scrumptious bean medley, all held together in a tomato base, it’s the perfect one pot feast.
