Hello friends, I hope all is well in your world.
For the past several weeks, Route 495 in Wilmington has been shutdown and this has added an additional 30 minutes to my daily commute. Now that I am getting home later, I’m trying to come up with fast and easy dinner recipes.
I found one online for a Chicken Tamale Skillet Pie, but changed it up a bit to use what I already had in the kitchen.
What I Used:
1 package of Ground Turkey
1 can of cream style corn
1 can Ro*Tel Diced Tomatoes
1 Can of Crescent Rolls
1/2 tsp ground cumin
Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees. In a cast-iron skillet brown the ground turkey on medium high heat for 10 minutes or until brown. Add a can of Cream Style Corn, a can of Ro*Tel tomatoes and ground cumin.
Cook for 3 minutes or until thoroughly heated, remove from heat, add a few sweet peppers then top with cheese.
Cover with crescent rolls and put into oven to bake for approximately 20 minutes or until dough is golden brown.
Remove from oven and let sit for 5 minutes before serving.
This was a great meal and my men loved it, the next time I am going to use shredded chicken.
Do you have any quick and easy dinner recipes that you can share?

Hello Friends and Happy Slow Cooker Saturday!
This was my first attempt at making chili using chicken instead of ground beef or ground turkey, and using white beans instead of red kidney or black beans…the verdict is FAIL!
Personally, I like my foods spicy especially chili, but this recipe although was good, was too bland for even my men. I added hot sauce but it still didn’t jazz it up, so if you like chili with no kick, this one is for you!
- 4 medium frozen chicken breasts
- 1/2 bag small white beans
- 1 large can of diced tomatoes
- 1 package Chili Seasoning
- 1 cup of water
Rinse the beans under cold water and drain, mix Chili Seasoning into a cup of water.
Coat Crock Pot with Cooking Spray
Add frozen chicken breasts and beans
Pour in Chili Seasoning Mix
I added more water to cover the beans so they wouldn’t burn. This may have watered down the seasoning causing it to taste bland. I should have used two packages of Chili Seasoning.
Pour in diced tomatoes
Cover and cook on low for 8 hours
It looked better than it tasted…but hey, I tried!
Have you ever made White Chicken Chili, how did you make it?

Hello Friends and Happy FRI-YAY!
This week’s Foodie Feature has a few more than 4 ingredients but took less than 40 minutes to prepare. It was an easy breezy mid-week meal that my men really enjoyed and got me out of the kitchen in record time!
Try it and let me know if you added a twist to make it better.
- Ground Turkey
- Ortega Fiesta Flats, Taco Seasoning, Taco Sauce
- 1 cup Water
- Diced Onion
- Diced Tomato
- Shredded Cheese
- Shredded Lettuce
- Sour Cream
Brown ground turkey, drain liquid then and add 1 cup of water and the Ortega Taco Seasoning Mix. Heat until thickened, stirring often.
While ground turkey is cooking, dice tomatoes and onions
Warm Ortega Fiesta Flats in a preheated oven 350~, for 3-4 minutes
Fill Fiesta Flats with ingredients
“Use what you got to make what you want“ was the inspiration for this mid-week meal.
I usually buy Ground Turkey but this week purchased Perdue Ground Chicken, and using ingredients that I already had on hand I jazzed up an ordinary loaf.
Mixed Ground Chicken, an egg, leftover salsa, Taco Seasoning and bread crumbs to form loaf
Top with slices of onion and peppers (cheddar cheese optional)
Placed in loaf pan and baked for 40 minutes @ 350~
Served with Tortilla Strips and mild pepper rings.
Another easy breezy recipe- leftovers can be used to make a Taco Salad when added to lettuce, tomatoes, Avocado and dressing.
I stopped at Save aLot to pick up a few items and was a bit disappointed that the lines were long and there weren’t any cashiers at the registers. It was overheard that they can’t afford to bring in cashiers so are using store managers to ring up purchases. Not sure if this is what they mean by “SAVE A LOT” – so sad!

On Friday, my son and I went to Save A Lot, a grocery store that I pass everyday on the way home but have never stopped. They had some good bargains especially in the produce department. Tayair thought it was weird that we had to pay a quarter to get a shopping cart, but understood the concept when we returned the cart and got the quarter back. This is not a fancy store nor is it “ghetto” as some people posted on Foursquare but the price is right for certain items as shown below:
