Hatches are Battened

So apparently there’s a storm a ‘comin to town. And yet, here we are in the city of refuge (Atlanta) and we’re being told to “Batten Down the Hatches.” Some city of refuge. Aside from this, can we discuss why this term is used so much…or at all? That and “Hunkering Down.” Can’t we just […]

Back to School Jitters…Cornflake Crumb Chicken

I’ve been unusually anxious over the past few weeks. You know, your typical can’t eat, eat too much, yell too much, stay away from me or you’ll be in time-out for no reason, and just a general feeling of unease. Didn’t quite know what it was until it hit me while watching a Staples commercial […]

Chicken Burgers and a Tantrum

Chicken Burgers and a Tantrum

If you’re like me, you have no patience. Which means that a tantrum at 5pm is bad news for both you and said tantrum architect. But before you do something you’ll be sorry for later, quickly place junior in a very long time-out and take your aggression out on a nice package of ground chicken. […]

Off the Chain Chicken and Paparadelli Pasta

We had every intention of making a healthy pink salmon dinner for Valentine’s Day but as soon as we saw the package of fresh Paparadelli pasta starting at us longingly from the shelves of Trader Joes, we couldn’t resist. And since Paparadelli goes just OH SO WELL with a gorgeous sauce filled with chicken simmered […]

Paging All Diners…Chicken Lettuce Wraps

The attraction of suburbanites to chain restaurants never ceases to amaze me. It’s like a magnet. What is it about a 1500 calorie oil infused Bloomin’ Onion that is just so damn enticing? Or the magic ingredient in the spinach artichoke dip that keeps people slathering it on bottomless buckets of tortilla chips? Seriously, on […]

Superbowl! Mack Daddy of SNACKS!

Is there really a reason to read this post? No. Why? Because we’re all gearing up for the best SNACK DAY of the entire year. Superbowl. The day where you can wake up and down spinach dip for breakfast, follow it with a swig of beer, chase that beer with some sort of cheese puff […]

Card Me…Sandra’s Superior Grilled Chicken

I’m not a card-carrying member of much but I do carry a lot of cards. Mostly in the form of Nordstrom, American Express, Starbucks and Jersey Mike’s (one more sub and I get a free sandwich!). Flaunting my membership affiliations isn’t something I typically do (save the occasional single school magnet) so I’m always a […]

Nomadic Musings

Being a freelancer is a bit like being a nomad in the desert. You’re always wandering around setting up your tent, working on all kinds of projects with all sorts of interesting (feel free to interpret liberally) people until the job is done, and then you move on. You’re also a bit of a chameleon, […]

Perfectly Logical Meal and Budget Planning

Soup and a Side of Fryes…Chicken Soup

As a non-meal planner, I don’t spend my Sundays writing lists. I’ve never taken one to the grocery store and so I usually forget at least six things when I come home. I stare at those women with the coupons filed neatly in the organizers and I wish I could be like them.  Alas, the […]

Short Order Cook…Chicken Strips with Honey Mustard

I’m not a short order cook. In fact there’s nothing I can’t stand more at mealtime than when my kids tell me they don’t like what I’m making. Because nine times out of ten (only if I’m in a really good mood will I cave) do I make anything other than what we’re having. “Your […]
