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, […]

Slow Cooker Split Pea Soup

‘Tis the season for leftovers…particularly of the ham and turkey variety. The easiest and fastest way to use up leftover ham is in a hot bowl of split pea soup. Take some veggies, onions and garlic, dried split peas, and any and all leftover ham, drop it in the crockpot with some liquid, and voila, […]

Cheesy Jalapeno Cauliflower Mash

Yep, we did it. We jumped on the mashed cauliflower bandwagon. And honestly, I’m not sure why we waited this long. In a recent effort to refine my carb intake, I’ve been experimenting with substitutes. And I’ll admit, the idea of cauliflower mash was intriguing. I’d heard people promise that it was pretty close to […]

Bacon + Brussels Sprouts = Delicious.

I’ve been making a concerted effort lately to eat more veggies. I’ve been adding spinach to my daily breakfast of scrambled eggs, cooking up frozen broccoli or green beans at lunch, and trying to have one or two vegetables on my plate at dinner. Every now and again, my wife and I like to get […]

Thai-style Beef Stir Fry

If you haven’t noticed a theme with the meals I post here, this is it: simple. While my wife loves to cook and could spend hours in the kitchen on one meal, she doesn’t want to do that every day. And as for me? Well, scrambled eggs tests my patience. So we try to find […]

Roasted Garlic Asparagus

Asparagus is loaded with nutrients across the whole spectrum of the alphabet: Vitamin A, C, E and K, as well as fiber, folate and chromium. All of these are essential in your diet to aid in recovery. My favorite way to prepare asparagus is by roasting them quickly in a high-heat oven. I make broccoli, […]

Roasted Broccoli

Broccoli is one of my favorite veggies. Cruciferous veggies, or broccoli, kale, cabbage and cauliflower, are high in Vitamin C and fiber*, making them a great addition to your diet. They’re filling, and they’ll help you better digest all the meat and protein you consume. This recipe takes less than 5 minutes to prep, then […]

Summer Corn with Bacon

I know, I know, summer is over. And while my wife is stamping her foot that I’m posting this now, I had to share it with you. When she put this on the table, I rolled my eyes. Here’s a secret: I hate tomatoes. But darn that woman, she cooks with them anyway. The rule […]

Super Fast Skillet Steak with Veggies

Beef? Yes. Onions? Yes. Mushrooms? Love ’em. Throw it all together and in minutes you have a meal worthy of a weightlifter. If you have those three ingredients, olive oil, salt and pepper on hand, you’re all set. Not only is this ready quickly, but you can use cheaper cuts of beef and save those […]
