MY OTHER RECIPES


This year has flown by in our family. Both of my kids are in middle school, so with advanced homework, sports, and extra curricular activities we have all been extremely busy the last nine months.

We are ready for a break, and definitely ready to celebrate the end of the school year!

Although my kids aren’t graduating high school yet, there are graduation parties happening all around us.

It’s bitter-sweet to watch our friends help their babies get ready for college. And knowing that they are just a couple months away from leaving the house (possibly for good) has to be hard.

Thankfully I have a few more years to keep my babies at home, and I plan to make the very most of it!

    This looks scrumptious and I hope to make it soon! It looks like you put the raw chicken directly into the casserole. Will it pick up enough flavor that way without seasoning directly beforehand? I haven’t made very many casseroles with chicken so I wasn’t sure. Thank you!
