If you haven’t printed this awesome $0.75/2 participating Ragu Sauces coupon I posted about last week, it isn’t too late!

There are two things I love about couponing 1) saving money on the ingredients of frugal and tasty meals and 2) saving money on necessities like pasta sauce with Ragu coupons! Right now we can save on two jars of Ragu Sauce at Safeway with #SaucesomeSavings! Go HERE to print this manufacturer $0.75/2 participating Ragu Sauces coupon!  This coupon expires 5/16/15.

Then, head to the store to get the ingredients for an easy to make, kid-friendly and tasty meal! You will want to pick up your sauce, two pounds of boneless, skinless chicken breasts and mozzarella cheese. If you don’t have bread crumbs and the required herbs listed in the recipe below, you will want to pick that up as well. (But I know most of you have these in your stockpile! )

Ragu Sauce has quality ingredients like tomatoes, onions and extra virgin olive oil, making it the perfect recipe starter for a long list of delectable meals. We made Oven Baked Chicken Parmesan with our Ragu that we had already saved on with Ragu coupons. The recipe is easy to make and kid friendly!

safeway-ragu

What I love about this recipe is how quickly I was able to prepare this meal. I was also surprised by how far the one egg and the bread crumbs went. Originally I thought I might need to use two eggs and also more bread crumbs. In actuality, there was the perfect amount of each for the two pounds of chicken.

chicken-parmesanBake the chicken in a casserole dish at 400 degrees for 20 minutes. Then, top with Ragu sauce and shredded mozzarella. Bake for another 10 minutes until the cheese is melted and the chicken is cooked through. As this is baking, your house will smell like an Italian restaurant.

Barbecue Chicken Quinoa Salad Recipe

**Pin This Recipe**

Now that springtime is here in full force, we use our grill a lot. And we often have leftover chicken. This is the absolute perfect salad to use your leftover chicken in!

I know that I have said this before but if I could eat quinoa every day of the week, I would (and I have).  :) This recipe  highlights my love for quinoa and beans and my hubby’s love for barbecue chicken. This BBQ Chicken Quinoa Salad recipe highlights summer fresh ingredients and at the same time combines the ease of using leftover or crockpot chicken with cooked quinoa.

Did you know that quinoa is a seed? It is a seed but it cooks like most grains. And, I love quinoa because one serving of quinoa typically has one serving of protein!  To see more Quinoa recipes I’ve posted, go HERE to my Pinterest Page devoted entirely to Quinoa!

For this recipe, you can use shredded rotisserie chicken, leftover shredded chicken, shredded chicken breasts that were boiled or baked or chicken in the crockpot. The chicken used in this picture was made in the crockpot. If you want to use your crockpot, place 4 frozen chicken breasts, 6 oz. of bottled BBQ sauce (our favorite bbq sauce is Sweet Baby Ray’s), 1/3 cup Italian salad dressing, 2 tbsp + 2 tsp of brown sugar, and 2 tbsp + 2 tsp of Worcestershire sauce. Mix all of the ingredients together (in the crockpot) and cook on High for 3-4 hours. (I followed the barbecue chicken recipe on AllRecipes.)

This recipe is gluten-free (Sweet Baby Ray’s barbecue sauce is gluten-free).  If you use a different brand of sauce, make sure you double check that there is no gluten in it.

Mexican Cheese Boat Recipe & Delimex Taquitos and Tacos

When I was given the task to create a game day recipe that goes well with Delimex Taquitos and Tacos, I jumped at it. We love all things Mexican in this house. My son, while he loves food, is picky when it comes to dinner. Fortunately, we’ve found that he shares our love for Mexican food so I always know that I can make a Mexican themed dinner and that he will eat it!

delimex-coupon

Before I headed to Walmart to purchase our Delimex Taquitos and Tacos, I went HERE to print this $1 off on any TWO (2) Delimex® Frozen Taquito products (Excluding Fruit Taquito Products) at Walmart coupon. The coupon is available to print through 4/7 and expires 5/4/15.

delimex-walmartI found the Delimex Taquitos, Tacos and Tamales in the freezers located by the meat department in Walmart.

delimex-boxI purchased the Delimex Chicken & Cheese Taquitos as well as the Delimex Beef & Cheddar Rolled Tacos.

When the big games are on TV, we like to eat finger foods and sit on the couch while we watch. And Delimex Taquitos and Tacos are the perfect finger foods. When you bake them in the oven (it takes a quick 11 minutes), they will come out crispy and really flavorful. I knew these Taquitos and Tacos had lots of flavor so I wanted to create a dip that accented the flavor nicely. I came up with this Mexican Cheese Boat recipe. Why is it called a “boat”? Because you take a fresh loaf of Italian bread and hollow it out making it shaped like a boat. Then you fill it with yummy, cheesy goodness.

mexican-cheese-boat-ingredients

There are not many ingredients in this recipe! Just buy a loaf of fresh Italian bread, and make sure you have cream cheese, salsa, refried beans and of course cheddar cheese!

mexican-cheese-boat-ingredients-1Hollow the loaf of Italian Bread and mix the cheese ingredients together in a separate mixing bowl.

mexican-cheese-boat-ingredients-2

Fill the loaf with the cheese ingredients and top with cheddar cheese! Cover with tin foil. Bake for 35 minutes. Take the tin foil off and bake for an additional 10 minutes or until shredded cheese is melted.

mexican-cheese-boat

The finished product is so yummy. Warm, smooth, flavorful cheese dip just waiting to be dipped into! I made both the Delimex Taquitos and Delimex Tacos and both went perfectly with the dip!

mexican-cheese-boat-delimex

Dip right into your cheese boat or spoon some of the cheese onto a plate.

Parmesan-crusted-chicken

For me, a perfect day would include going to the grocery store, buying fresh produce and meats and then heading home and cooking a lavish meal. I love spending time in the kitchen and everything about it. However, now that I’m a mom who not only parents full-time but works full-time while parenting, I don’t have a lot of free time. And sometimes, cooking meals becomes a chore and not a relaxing time.

Publix and Best Meals Happen At Home remind me that I’m not just making food because I have to; I’m creating a lifetime of family memories at our dinner table. When I signed up to receive the Best Meals Happen at Home free weekly e-newsletter, I not only received high value printable Publix coupons, but the e-newsletter also includes simple and tasty recipes! Go HERE to sign up to receive recipes (and coupons) for brands like Green Giant, Hunt’s, Hellmann’s and Campbell’s products.

When I saw this Parmesan Crusted Chicken recipe, I knew I had to try it. It not only looked easy to make, but it sounded really tasty. And, I’m constantly searching for new chicken recipes because for some reason, my two year old doesn’t care for chicken that much!

Image 1The first thing I noticed about this recipe is that it requires just four ingredients. In fact, I had all four ingredients in my stockpile! (My freezer is stocked with boneless, skinless chicken breasts.) The second thing I noticed is that it only takes 20 minutes to bake this meal. So it is easy to prepare and bakes quickly!

Parmesan-crusted-chicken-1I placed my Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts halves in a baking dish (I sprayed it with cooking oil). Then, using a butter knife, I spread the Hellmann’s Real Mayonnaise and cheese mixture on each breast. Then lastly, I spooned bread crumbs on top of each breast. And that was it. Easy peasy!  (If you notice, I also made two pieces of chicken without the bread crumbs. If you are going without carbs – like me – just spread Hellmann’s Real Mayonnaise on the chicken and then top with herbs! I topped mine with dried oregano and a dried Italian herb blend!

Parmesan-crusted-chicken-2

This was the finished product! How good does this look? The chicken was moist and so flavorful. My husband raved about it. And even my “carbless” version was great! As you can see from the photo below, the meal was a hit with my son! He ate all of his chicken AND asked for seconds. You better believe I will be making this meal again!

3 Ingredient Slow Cooker Salsa Chicken

3 Ingredient Slow Cooker Salsa Chicken

Many of you know that I have an obsession with my slow cooker. I’ve always loved it. But this year, it has become a pivotal part of my life. I got to the point where I was tired of throwing frozen food into my oven every night because I was so tired and did not have enough to to prepare a home cooked meal. So, I’ve made it a habit to use it at least 3 or 4 times a week and find that my dinner prep is so much easier when I’ve already got it cooking in my slow cooker!

I stumbled upon this 3 Ingredient Slow Cooker Salsa Chicken recipe a few weeks ago and I’ve made it 3 times in the past week and a half. In fact, I have it cooking right now. Hubby loves it. And even my son eats all of it (he’s become finicky with chicken lately). I am trying to avoid eating much sugar so I use the chicken to make a Chicken Salsa. Hubby will usually use the chicken to make tacos or burritos. And my friend Amy had the great idea of using this chicken to make Chicken Nachos! Yum.

This 3 Ingredient Slow Cooker Salsa Chicken is SO good. And it is SO easy to prepare.

salsa-chicken-1Lay the boneless, skinless chicken breasts in the slow cooker and pour the jar of salsa on top as well as 1/3 of a pack of the taco seasoning. You can use more taco seasoning if you like. One of my upcoming goals is to make homemade taco seasoning so that I can control the sugar and the sodium. But until then, I use 1/3 of a pack and it gives plenty of flavor.

salsa-chicken-1Cook on low for 8 hours. Be prepared – your house will smell amazing.

salsa-chicken-1Once the chicken has cooked, use two forks to easily shred it. Add the chicken to tacos or burritos or salads. Serve with rice and/or beans. And enjoy.

Homemade Peanut Butter Recipe

**Pin this to Pinterest**

Ever since I started eating super super clean with the Maximized Living Advanced plan, I haven’t eaten any sugar. But I have eaten peanut butter. Next time you look at a jar of peanut butter, notice the amount of sugar in it! So I’ve spent lots of money on peanut butter that doesn’t have any extra ingredients but sugar. One of the ways I’ve insured my peanut butter is nothing but nuts is by making homemade peanut butter!

If you haven’t tried this recipe, you need to! Peanut butter is a staple in our house. My amazing sister-in-law created this Homemade Peanut Butter Recipe.  It is so so easy and involves just one ingredient – peanuts.  This recipe is so easy that my sister-in-law calls this Five Minute Peanut Butter.  You literally need a food processor and five minutes of your time. Love it.

The best thing about this recipe (besides the fact that you just need nuts to make your butter) is that there are no preservatives.  If you look at the back of many store bought peanut butter jars, you will see lots of ingredients.  This recipe just involves one.  You can’t eat much cleaner than this!

Pour your peanuts in the food processor (recipe is below)
5-Minute-Peanut-Butter-3

As you process the nuts, they will start out looking like a dry powder. Keep processing.
5-Minute-Peanut-Butter-2

As you process your nuts more and more, they will change from a dry powder to most butter. Keep processing until your peanut butter is the consistency you like. I like mine extra smooth! 5-Minute-Peanut-Butter-1

CopyCat Chick-Fil-A Sandwich Recipe

CopyCat Chick-Fil-A Sandwich Recipe

When I was in college, my husband introduced me to every fast food restaurant that exists. And he introduced me to all of his favorite entrees and side dishes at each restaurant. On a college budget, he wined and dined me at fast food restaurants. Once we graduated and got married, we stopped going to fast food restaurants. We had decided not to eat at as many fast food restaurants and I finally convinced him that every now and then this girl needs a date night at a nicer restaurant versus being served in a paper bag. (Don’t get me wrong – I love frugal date nights!)

Now we only eat at one fast food restaurant. Chick-Fil-A. The problem is that paying for two adults and one child is not cheap! So we don’t go there very often. So when I found this CopyCat Chick-Fil-A Sandwiches recipe, I was all about it. I wanted to try it and see if it would come close to the original sandwich that we love so much. It is really good!

I made two versions of this sandwich. Fried and baked. Because I used coconut oil with the fried chicken, I found it to have a slight coconut flavor. Next time I may try a different type of oil. The baked version was really tasty. I will make the baked version again for sure!

copycat-chickfila-3My chicken is marinading and everything is prepped and ready to cook!
