Sunday Night Roast Chicken

Roast Chicken

Over the last few months I’ve been making a roast chicken every other week for Sunday dinner. Roaster chickens are very affordable (around $5) and even with my family of five I’m able to get enough leftover chicken to use in another meal later in the week.

I started out making Ina Garten’s roast chicken, but I’ve kind of strayed away from that and changed it to what we like. Read More

Tangy Pork Chops on Rice

(This is another dish that just doesn’t take a very good picture, but it does taste amazing!)

While this isn’t a quick meal to whip up — the pork chops need to cook for about 45 minutes — it’s very easy to put together. Read More


Make Your Own Frosty Paws Dog Treats

Homemade Frosty Paws Dog Treats

Dogs like the occasional cool treat just as much as we do, so why not treat them to a homemade ice cream made just for them?

While dairy isn’t terribly good for dogs, yogurt contains much less lactase than regular milk and the live cultures are great for your dog’s digestive system. As with human treats, all things in moderation!

Frosty Paws Dog Ice Cream

32 oz vanilla yogurt
1 mashed banana or one large jar of banana baby food
2 T peanut butter
2 T honey

Blend all together and freeze in paper cups. Peel away the cups & place in your pets dish to serve. These can also be made in a non-salt automatic ice cream maker and served like regular ice cream in a dish.

DO NOT freeze in ice cube trays as your dog is likely to eat them so fast he’ll choke.
