Heartburn Free with Nexium

So often on this blog, I share recipes I’ve made for my family, and if you stick around here long enough, you’ll find that we are no stranger to hot and spicy foods.  We love everything from hot wings to Mexican, and Chinese food!  It’s all very delicious, but as you can imagine, it often means a little digestive comfort, and for that reason we go to the Purple Pill for Nexium Level Protection!

Other members of my family took Nexium for years, and like a lot of people, our whole family was happy when we learned we’d finally be able to pick up this medicine over the counter! [Read more…]

Chipotle Chicken

With the hot summer weather, comes summer grilling!  Like many households, here at Simply Sweet Home, my husband is the Grill King!  Not only does he do a great job of cooking up meats to perfection, but he is also a master when it comes to creating custom sauces and marinades.

Just like our Southern summers, when it comes to sauces, we like it hot!  Over the weekend my hubby grilled up some delicious chicken, featuring a hot, bold, and savory sauce that doubles as both a marinade and a dipping sauce for entrees and appetizers!

5 Kitchen Tips from my Hubby

Each day my husband and I are pressed with one big question: What are we going to eat?  

Sometimes getting all our meal fixed is one of the biggest challenges of the day, but I have a few things I do to make it less challenging. First of all, I have a husband who loves being in the kitchen and is happy.  Secondly, my family loves convenience foods, so a few nights a week I get to just heat up pre-cooked items from the freezer.  Stouffer’s is one of my go-to brands for this!

Friday Favorites – Week 270 – with Comfort Food

Hello all!  Welcome to this week’s Friday Favorites party.  I generally associate the term “comfort food” with the fall and winter months.  I think of soups, stews, casseroles, meat & potatoes, etc.  But today I have a few comfort items that are definitely for all seasons, including summer.  Take a look!

And speaking of comfort food, the other day I shared a recipe for Chicken Cordon Bleu Pasta, which also includes a $15 Paypal Giveaway.  It’s a low entry giveaway with only a couple of days to go, so go over and enter! [Read more…]

Chicken Cordon Bleu Pasta

Panko Bread Crumbs

Lately I’ve been in a mood to branch out and try new recipes.  I haven’t really made anything new in a while because Noah isn’t a “try new things” kind of kid, so making something new often means making the new recipe, plus making something else for him. (And who has the time for that?) But now that school is out, that gives me a little more time to cook….in the past week I’ve had a chance to make 3 new things!  One thing I made this week was Chicken Cordon Bleu Pasta.  I basically used my very popular Alfredo Recipe and added a few key ingredients like Swiss cheese, ham, and Progresso Panko Crispy Bread Crumbs.

Noah heard the name of the recipe and basically refused to try it.  (I’ve never made my Chicken Cordon Bleu for him.)  But we convinced him to try a bite, and he actually liked it.  Yay! [Read more…]

Make Every Night a Date Night with Tony’s Pizza

This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and TONY’S® Pizza, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #BigPizzeriaTaste http://my-disclosur.es/OBsstV

Date Night with Tonys Pizza

I love going out, but sometimes there are a lot of road blocks to having a night out:  there’s no time, you’re tired or busy, there’s no money in the budget, etc.  Last month my husband was actually in the hospital, and shortly after his return home, he was diagnosed with neuropathy.  With this, there has been a lot to adjust to, and quite frankly we haven’t really been in the mood to go out.  Luckily the two of us have always been able to have a great time, just hanging out together at home.  As long as we’re together, we can make every night a date night.  One of our favorite activities is watching a little television and having a great meal, and quite often that meal is pizza!  We recently went to Walmart picked up TONY’S® Pizza, and it made a for a delicious meal and fun date night.   [Read more…]

Game Day Fiestas with Delimex

This week our television seems to be fixed on basketball! At our house, it can be very hard to pry people away from the television or the computer to eat a meal, and if a ball game is on, you can just forget about it!  For this reason, I always like to have plenty of appetizers and snacks, I can whip up at a moment’s notice.  This way I can skip the cooking, and they can enjoy the game!  A couple of days ago, I made some Delimex.

Delicious Ideas for National Sloppy Joe Day and Manwich Mondays

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Manwich. All opinions are 100% mine.


At my house we often plan our meals around work and school activities.  A long day of work, followed by late pick up from school due to band practice or other after school activities means I need a quick dinner option.

One of my “go-to” meals for days like this is sloppy joes made with Manwich. Manwich is a great meal time option, because the whole family loves it.  (Believe me, it wouldn’t be a regular go-to meal if it didn’t have my stepson’s seal of approval!)

It also comes in three great varieties: Manwich Original, Manwich Bold and Manwich Thick & Chunky.

My favorite variety is Manwich Bold. It’s great for my favorite Manwich Melts.  (Just add your favorite cheese and sandwich toppings.  I like mine with mayo and dill pickles!)

Another thing I like to make with Manwich sauce is meatloaf and mini meatloaf cups.

National Sloppy Joe Day is coming up March 18. You can celebrate the occasion by serving up some yummy Manwich sandwiches, or make something else with Manwich’s yummy sloppy joe sauce!

  • Spoon Manwich meat in to a casserole dish and top with mashed potatoes for delicious and saucy Shepherds Pie.
  • Pour over Fritos and add cheese for a yummy Manwich Pie.
  • Add Manwich to hard or soft shell tortillas for Manwich Tacos.
  • Add cooked pasta to your Manwich meat for a yummy skillet meal.

The Manwich website is also filled with Manwich Mondays Recipes and other great ideas for how you can think outside the bun and use Manwich sauce to make great weeknight meals for your family.  You can also subscribe to the ReadySetEat enewsletter for great ideas in your inbox!

Salsa Chili

Salsa Chili

 I love good comfort food, especially hot soups and chilis.  As the weather’s been colder here the last few weeks, it’s definitely put me even more in the mood for something warm and hearty.  A while back my husband and I collaborated on this Salsa Chili.  It’s the perfect chili recipe, as the tomatoes, onions, and peppers are right in the salsa, which means no peeling, chopping or dicing is required! And best of all, it’s delicious! [Read more…]
