Pasta with Grilled Chicken and Fresh Peas

From The Farm Girl Gabs. This is what she had to say about her recipe. “This will go far to satisfy your family and more important that man in your life and his cravings. As the saying goes, the quickest way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. I used Campanella pasta. I like the way it is cone-shaped but you can use any shaped pasta or spaghetti you like”

Easy Chicken Stir Fry Recipe

Yum! Easy Chicken Stir Fry Recipe comes from She Saved.  She says “You can cut up the veggies and chicken ahead of time and then put it all together when you’re ready to start cooking.  It’s a good freezer meal too: Bag up the cut up peppers, onions and chicken (chicken separately) and then defrost and cook when you’re ready to eat. Buy these things when they’re on sale and you’ll save money, too!  Plus it’s delicious.  Serve over rice or in a soft taco shell as a fajita. Enjoy!”

Bacon Cheeseburger Bombs

The Exhausted Mom knocked it out of the ball park with these Bacon Cheeseburger Bombs….they are the BOMB!  She says  “They are a great way to get my kids to eat a quick meal before rushing out the door. Not to mention that they are little “packets,” so they are easy to eat on the go. I can make them ahead of time while the kids finish their homework and they can grab a couple on the way out the door. Also, I don’t feel pressured to stop by a drive-thru…double win!”

 4 Ingredient Parmesan Crusted Chicken Recipe

This is what Dawn from Homemaking Hacks said of her recipe “This is one of those recipes I’ll be leaning back on time and again.

Beer Battered Fish & Coleslaw Tacos

My friend Amy from Savvy Saving Couple is a genius in the kitchen. Here’s what she had to say about this dish!  “My crispy fish tacos with fresh coleslaw were such a hit with my two kids! They requested that I must make them again! Think about it, coleslaw is always placed with a fish basket around here.
