Day 75–Crock Pot Whole Chicken

By: | 0 Comments | On: September 14, 2014 | Category: 3 Star Meal, Blog

Wow, what a disappointment tonight! It wasn’t that this was a bad dish. It was ok, which is why it gets 3 stars. You know the chicken you get from Kroger in the little bags that you can tell when it sits out too long because it is all dried... more

Day 64–Fettuccine Alfredo

By: | 0 Comments | On: September 3, 2014 | Category: 3 Star Meal, Blog

Oh, why does everyone in this house hate lemons? Well, not everyone… This was a special request from Emily, who adores fettuccine alfredo. She was so happy it was on the menu tonight. Well, sorry to report that this recipe fell short for her, because of the lemon taste. I... more

Happy Labor Day! I enjoyed spending time with Todd and the kids today, just relaxing and not having to do anything at all. Except for having to go to Kroger to get ingredients for the next few night’s meals, of course! I had to buy 2 different types of cheese... more

By: | 0 Comments | On: August 16, 2014 | Category: 3 Star Meal, Blog

I had such high hopes for this recipe. According to all the people on the food network page who rated this recipe, it had rave reviews. A few moderate ones here and there, but the majority couldn’t stop fawning over this recipe. I just wish I had the same reaction!!... more

Day 40–Perfect Potato Soup

By: | 0 Comments | On: August 11, 2014 | Category: 3 Star Meal, Blog

I was hoping this recipe would be my new go-to for potato soup, but unfortunately, this time the title was misleading. There was, however, a silver lining…I was able to use my new kitchen gadget to slice the potatoes!!   So, I bought this handy potato cutter on Amazon a... more

Day 37–Zucchini Chips

By: | 0 Comments | On: August 8, 2014 | Category: 3 Star Meal, Blog

Happy National Zucchini Day! Tonight we had a new way to eat this green cucumber-looking veggie. I think next Zucchini day I will pick another recipe. This one kinda fell flat to me. We had Zucchini chips, and I made some hamburgers to go with these. The thing is, the... more

Day 31–Tilapia with Escarole and Lemon Pepper Oil

By: | 0 Comments | On: August 2, 2014 | Category: 3 Star Meal, Blog

Oh boy…if it could go wrong, I think it did with this meal! I cooked this in 2 separate cast iron skillets because I needed to double the recipe to feed 7 tonight. What I ended up with is some of the little potatoes blackened and “unflavorful” fish. Do you... more

Day 26–Balsamic Glazed Salmon

By: | 0 Comments | On: July 28, 2014 | Category: 3 Star Meal, Blog

Well, this certainly won’t be served again in the Hukill household. I think I am the only person who actually likes Balsamic vinegar-based dishes. I know a dish must be bad if Todd takes a bite and says “Honey, I don’t like this.” I can count on one hand the... more

Day 24–Chicago Style Pan Pizza

This dish sure polarized the family! If you like meat lovers pizza, you would like this. For me, it had great flavor, but I felt like I was not actually eating pizza. We had to eat it with a fork! I’ve never been to Chicago, so I don’t know if... more

If you like lemons, you will like this recipe. Boy oh boy, this was lemony! First off, if you are like me, you have never heard of the word “meuniere”. I looked on Wikipedia, and found that the word refers to both a sauce and a method of cooking fish.... more
