Stir-Fry Veggie Pita Melt

I sometimes get in a 'spur-of-the-moment' type of mood when it comes to food. I see something sitting around (in this case it was a pita) and it just spins into a quick dish. Today I saw that pita and immediately thought: veggie pita. This idea took me back to the days when I used to work at a fast food restaurant where one of the menu items was a veggie pita melt. I considered doing a take on that, but I didn't have all the ingredients needed and if I'm going to duplicate, then it must be spot on. It was one of my favorite things and I just can't do a 'fake' version.

Anyways, that thought sparked another similar pita idea. I did a quick veggie stir-fry with some teriyaki sauce and then I was in pita melt heaven.

Baked Chicken Flautas

My husband loves Mexican food. He actually said he could eat it every day if possible. Well, in this house, that isn't going to happen unless he starts cooking. It's not that I don't like the food, it's just that I can't eat a lot of it. It's not my favorite thing. In moderation though, I'm good.

Crock Pot Chicken Cacciatore - the Healthier Way!

Here's a little secret: I have never made chicken cacciatore before. My dad used to make the dish quite often when I was younger, but it just wasn't one of those things that I'd go running for. It was good, but just not my thing.

Ever since I started whipping up my crock pot meals though, I've found myself trying new things and reinventing some old classics. One of them happens to be this chicken cacciatore. There were a couple tests and versions before I was finally happy with the results, but the last one turned out so well that my quest for an amazing chicken cacciatore is over. I wouldn't change a thing with this one! I don't think I've ever said that before. Scary.
