Summerrrrrr!  I know you’re out there.  We saw a glimmer of it in May, but lately it’s been cool and drizzly and much more Spring like than summer.  No matter, in this household there is no grilling “season.”  You’ll find my husband next to the grill in the snow, sleet, rain, wind, hurricane, tornado, tsunami, zombie apocalypse… Man loves his grill.  And I love giving him all the things to grill, like this new Grilled Cilantro Lime Chicken!

Crock Pot Chicken and Broccoli

Flavor packed & incredibly easy, this Crock Pot Chicken and Broccoli is perfect for a weeknight dinner. Serve over rice and it’ll taste just like take out!

Flavor packed & incredibly easy, this Crock Pot Chicken and Broccoli is perfect for a weeknight dinner. Serve over rice and it'll taste just like take out!1. Dear Crock Pot, I love you.  2. Sometimes, I look back on our lives about 5 months ago and think about when I said we were “so busy,” and laugh and say, “Ooh you silly silly kids.”  Needless to say, having a baby drastically alters your concept of the word “busy.” In addition to the adorable little human who eats, poops, and drools all of the time, throw in a couple of Daycare plagues (seriously I had no idea what a little cesspool daycare would be…), buying a house, and packing?  Yup, that’s our lives right now.  Busy for sure so exciting! Our new house is quite literally twice the size of our house now, and AND ohmygodohmygod not just one real adult sized refrigerator, but TWO (an extra storage fridge/freezer in the garage)!  I’m so happy I could cry.  But that could also be because I’m so tired, too 😉

Mediterranean Grilled Chicken Breasts

Mediterranean Grilled Chicken Breasts are a super flavorful way to make your weeknight meals even easier!

Super easy Mediterranean Grilled Chicken BreastsWho else loves healthy, simple, fast, and easy dinners?  I knew we weren’t alone.  Cooking from scratch often conjures up images of slaving away in a kitchen for hours on end.  Au contraire, that’s not what it means at all. At least not in this super busy household.  Yes, we have some recipes that are a total labor of love, like our Feta Cheese from scratch, or a from scratch pasta dish, but we both have full time jobs and lives that we need to attend to on a daily basis so for a majority of the time, we’re cooking from scratch dinners like this easy Mediterranean Grilled Chicken.
