4 1/2 cups warm water (110 degrees to 115 degrees)
6 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons salt

Chicken Sauteed with Vinegar

I completely forgot to put my chicken in the crock pot this morning before work, so when I got home I had to rush to figure out what to do with it. I googled "quick and easy chicken dinners" and this is the one I chose! It was super easy to make, required few ingredients and tasted delicious!

  • 4 chicken thighs or other bone-in chicken pieces
  • 4-6 Tbs butter and/or olive oil
  • salt and pepper
  • 1/2 cup vinegar (red wine, rice, peach!, whatever)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp dried tarragon
  • 1 tsp dried parsley
Heat the oil and/or most of the butter, saving a bit for the final step. Salt and pepper the chicken while the butter is heating, then brown the chicken on all sides over medium high heat for about 10 minutes. Add 1/4 cup of the vinegar plus the water. Then cover the pan and cook for another 15 minutes or so, until the chicken is done.
Put the chicken on your serving dish and keep warm. Add the garlic and cook a minute or so, until softened and smelling wonderful. Add the rest of the vinegar and cook down a few minutes. Add the last bit of butter, a tablespoon or two (and a tablespoon of tomato paste if you’d like!). Pour the sauce over the chicken and sprinkle with tarragon and parsley.

Yummy Fish Tacos

I don't know about you, but whenever I've had fish tacos in a restaurant, they pretty much brought me a taco shell with a huge chunk of fish, a little sauce, and lettuce. I decided to make them myself at home and came up with this recipe. It is one of my family's favorites, even my kids who don't like much of anything lol. The part I like best about this recipe is that the fish is in small flaky pieces, instead of huge chunks.

*1 pound of fish (I like to use Cod)
*Olive Oil
*Garlic powder
*Corn Tortillas
*Coleslaw Mix (without the sauce!)
*Tartar Sauce

Mix coleslaw with tartar sauce, use enough tartar sauce that it is all covered, but not dripping. Season with about 1/2 teaspoon cumin, mix well and set aside, going back to stir occasionally.
Heat olive oil and add fish fillets, not adding seasonings yet. As it cooks it will start to flake, use your spatula to break it up as it does. As it's breaking into smaller pieces, season with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Keep cooking until cooked through, I like to cook it a bit longer and let some edges of fish brown a bit.
Heat tortillas in the microwave for 20 seconds or so, one or two at a time. Spoon fish onto tortillas (a little goes a long way!). Top with coleslaw mixture and enjoy :-)

*crushed red pepper

Heat oil in a large skillet over low heat. Add garlic and cook, stirring, until fragrant but not colored, about 1 minute.

Add beans, reduce heat to low and simmer, covered, until heated through. Season with salt and pepper.
Meanwhile, cook pasta in the boiling water for 4 minutes. Add broccoli and cook until the pasta is just tender and the broccoli is tender, 4 to 5 minutes more. Reserving 1/2 cup of the cooking liquid, drain the pasta and broccoli and place in a large bowl. Add the tomato mixture and the reserved cooking liquid; toss to coat. The dish should be slightly soupy. Sprinkle each serving with cheese.

Italian Style Pork Chops

I made this recipe for dinner yesterday, and it was sooo tasty!


*Olive Oil
*2 cups sliced mushrooms
*6 pork loin chops
*2 cloves garlic, minced
*1 cup chopped onion
*1 (14.5 ounce) can diced Italian tomatoes, undrained
* 1 tsp. basil
*1/2 tsp oregano
*1/2 tsp salt
*1/4 tsp pepper
*1/2 cup water, if necessary
*1 large green bell pepper, cut into 6 pieces

Heat 1 teaspoon olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in mushrooms; cook and stir until mushrooms are tender, 5 to 7 minutes. Transfer the mushrooms to a bowl and set aside.
Heat the remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil in the skillet over medium heat. Add the pork chops, browning on both sides, 7 to 10 minutes. Place the pork chops in a baking dish, then drain all but 1 tablespoon of drippings from the skillet. Stir in the garlic and onion; cook and stir until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes.
Pour onion mixture and tomatoes over pork chops, then season with basil, oregano, salt and pepper. Bake at 400 degrees until pork chops are tender and no longer pink in the center, about 45 minutes. Add a little water if the liquids dry up. After 45 minutes, place the bell pepper slices on top of the pork chops, then add the reserved mushrooms. Continue to bake until the bell pepper is tender, about 5-10 minutes.
