Low Fat Middle Eastern Turkey Dogs

Dip these in a little dijon mustard and enjoy!  They are really great!  You can serve them on tortillas or by themselves with a little dijon mustard!  Or, you could make them into patties and have them on pita bread!  YuMMMMYYYY!!!  As side dishes, couscous would work well or some baklava!   Ingredients 1 teaspoon […]

Herb-Roasted Chicken

I just love this recipe!  It’s amazingly simple and tastes spectacular!  You can even prepare the chicken ahead of time and then toss it in the oven when you get home from work or practice.  Although I have to admit I haven’t tried doing it that way.  Be sure and let it rest at least […]

Chicken Pot Pie

 Chief Zoo Keeper has been wanting to have homemade chicken pot pie.  I don’t typically like making things that take forever, but the other day I woke up and decided to be a good wife.  Don’t worry, I probably won’t stick to it!  LOL.  I got up at 5:30 and started making these, (it wasn’t […]

Momma’s Sloppy Joe’s

Sorry I’ve been MIA.  My computer has been evil and refusing to allow me to do anything functional!  Anyway, we are up and running for the moment! So, I promised a dear friend I would post this a while back and kept forgetting!  My Mom has made this recipe for years, and we all love […]

Chicken Tortilla Casserole

Hello All!!! Thanks for checking in on the Zoo!!! In a more organized Zoo, recipes and meals would be well planned out, with much thought put into them! Unfortunately, I can’t seem to get in touch with Zoo Management as they are doing a terrible job of that!!! LOL. When it came time to cook […]

Italian BBQ Pork Chops

Ingredients 3/4 cup balsamic vinegar 1/2 cup ketchup 1/4 cup brown sugar 1 clove garlic, minced 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon […]

Crystal’s Super Simple Homemade Cheesy Mac

I love quick and easy dinners during the week!  Who has time and energy to prepare a four course meal, work, clean house, or whatever all the time, every single day? In the summer, that can be even more important. Our kitchens get way too hot to want to be in there for long, am […]

Emeril’s Spaghetti and Meatballs

First I have to say, this may be the best sauce I’ve ever tasted! (When followed exactly, anyway!) I’ve changed it around and modified it at times, but it is too great when done by the recipe for me to say modifying it much is the best. LOL. I’m not sure if it would be […]

Dutch Oven Herb Pork Loin

I love cooking things that are delicious and simple.  The Dutch Oven Herb Pork Loin was quick and easy which certainly fits the bill of both!!!  It wasn’t much work to get it together and we all enjoyed it so much there were no leftovers!  The best part is that it was so great no […]

Not Your Momma’s Tuna

Power Tuna.  Paleo Auto-Immune Tuna. Low fat. Super Healthy. This is not your Momma’s tuna but it is absolutely delicious.   I recently had a doctor decide that he hates me and wanted me to start the auto-immune diet.  If you haven’t heard of it, it’s like Paleo on life hates you mode.  And I’m […]
