There is a horrible misconception going around, and I feel like I have to clear it up with y’all. There are people in this world… I can’t believe I even have to type this out… that think play dates are exclusively for kids. Shhh, don’t tell, but some of us know the real reason play dates exist. Sure, they’re great for kids, don’t get me wrong. I mean, as a homeschool mom, I love for my son to have play dates and get some socialization. But let’s be real.

Play dates are for moms.

Chicken Divine

Looking for a down-home chicken recipe that the whole family will love? This cheesy chicken broccoli lives up to it's name-- Chicken Divine. It's truly divine, and is delicious served over rice or pasta. It's a great weeknight dinner that doesn't require a ton of effort.

I love when a recipe truly lives up to it’s name. Divine…. that’s a lot to live up to, a name like “Chicken Divine.” But I have to tell you, between the melty cheese sauce, the tender chicken, and the perfect pieces of broccoli, this is truly a divine dish. I also love when I can try out a recipe that’s been in the family for awhile. Now, this recipe didn’t originate with our family… my grandfather was given the recipe by a client (he was a hairdresser), who passed it along to him after she’d tried the recipe with much success in her own home. It wasn’t unusual for clients to pass along recipes they’d loved to my grandparents. That made this the first time I’d ever tried making this truly divine chicken for myself, but certainly not the last.

Quick and Easy Beans and Rice

This quick Beans and Rice takes only minutes to make. It's so delicious and easy-- a great side dish for any meal!

I love easy meals. Anyone who has been reading for long knows a quick and easy meal is definitely the way to my heart! When I was fixing dinner the other night, I took a look and… oh no. No sides. I had nothing to pair with the chicken I had already started boiling! So, I took to the pantry to see just what I had inside… and out of my pantry findings, this very flavorful, very easy beans and rice came to be!

You’re going to start with 4 cups of minute rice, a bag of frozen corn, a can of kidney beans (drained), a can of diced tomatoes (also drained), a finely diced bell pepper, a can of chicken broth, and a package of ranch dressing mix. But here’s the best part: if you don’t have one or more of those ingredients, sub them out! These beans and rice are totally flexible!
