Fast Healthy Chicken

Honey Balsamic Chicken

I feel like one thing you can’t ever have enough of are good chicken recipes. Chicken is my go-to protein: it’s lean, it’s cheap, and it can be prepared a myriad of ways. But sometimes, it gets boring. This recipe will change chicken forever. Well………..maybe not forever. But you’ll dig it. It’s a pretty quick […]

Easy Alfredo Chicken in a Skillet

Alfredo Skillet Chicken

In my old college days, Olive Garden’s “Never-Ending Pasta Bowl” was one of my favorite times of the year. The waitresses would take one look at my football player/shotputter frame and order me doubles of the refills. I’d easily put away 3-4x what anyone else at my table would…and I usually got the alfredo sauce, […]

BBQ Pork & Pineapple Pizza

We used gluten-free pre-made crust (see why I cook gluten-free here), and used leftover pork from this recipe. If you want to get really gourmet, you could […]

Hot Wings Made Easy

If you take me to a pizza place, odds are I’m ordering a huge side of hot wings as part of my meal. Buffalo, teriyaki, garlic parmesan, BBQ — I love any sauce you throw on there. A few years back, while planning for a Superbowl party, my wife found this recipe. Recently, we resurrected […]
