If you are busy like me, you need supper to be easy. With kids going twelve directions after school, you need super simple meals that use one pan, pot, or skillet. This means less clean-up and more time to spend with family & friends.

101 Stovetop Suppers will show you how to make a pan of Pepperoni Tortellini, Kickin’ Cajun Tilapia or even Honey Chicken & Carrots. Have a bit more time on your hands? Make sure you try the Low Country Shrimp Boil, Buttermilk Fried Chicken or Family-Favorite Pork Tacos. Having a party? There is even an entire chapter dedicated to recipes that make enough to feed a crowd like Mom’s Chicken Riggies, Hunting Cabin Chili or some Seafood Linguini with a Kick. Each chapter has a perfect pair of dessert recipes like ark Chocolate & Hazelnut Blondies, Simple Skillet Peaches and Pineapple Pudding.

Here’s one of the StoveTop Suppers we tried:

Tomato & Chicken Penne
Serves: 6-8
  • ¼ c olive oil
  • 1 tsp garlic, chopped
  • 28 oz can diced tomatoes, drained
  • ½ c fresh basil
  • 2 lbs boneless skinless chicken breast, cooked and cubed
  • 16 oz pkg penne pasta, cooked
  • 8 oz shredded mozzarella cheese
  • salt and pepper to taste
  1. Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat.
  2. Add garlic; saute for one minute.
  3. Stir in tomatoes and basil; continue cooking for 2 minutes.
  4. Add chicken to skillet. Saute for about 5 minutes until heated through.
  5. Transfer chicken mixture to a large serving bowl; toss with pasta and cheese.

Gorton’s #WickedGoodSeafood Giveaway!


Did you know that Gorton’s has been around over 160 years? I know most of you may just know them from the commercials. I know I can’t help but sing the jingle in my head when I think of Gorton’s. Gorton’s sells frozen seafood products through better independent and chain grocery stores across the United States and Canada. I was able to find their products at my local Jewel Store for this review.

Now, we have always been a Gorton’s fan. I’m a huge fan of their skillet shrimp.


Nothing is better than a few of these shrimp and some cocktail sauce except maybe some of their Crispy Battered Fish Fillets!


Now, I personally like my fish fillet on a bun. However, Bill and Will chose to eat these cut up on their plates! It makes an awesome dinner!

As anyone who knows me knows, I love working out and I am a healthy eater most of the time. I look for foods that are low fat, low sodium, and low calorie. This is where NoOodle comes in; pasta without the carbs!

I was skeptical at first. There can’t possibly be a product out there like this-pasta noodles without carbs or fat or calories? These noodles are made from the yam-like root of the Asian konjac plant. Sound strange? Absolutely. However, these noodles are so easy to make and eat that you will quickly get over the strange name. These noodles come in a bag that you must strain in a colander and rinse in cold water for about a minute. There is a strong odor that comes from the mineral lime ingredient. Then you cut the NoOodles to the desired length and place them in a non-stick skillet. Heat the noodles on a medium heat for 2-3 minutes to absorb the excess moisture and top with whatever you choose to complete your meal!

I made the NoOodles with a basic marinara sauce for a low calories lunch and was pleasantly surprised!
Much like my usual spaghetti and marinara it tasted delicious, but the selling point was that it filled me up for the afternoon! I wasn’t back in the kitchen an hour later starving like I am after
my spaghetti dinner.

The NoOodles are all natural, no calories, no fat, no carbs, no soy, no gluten, taste great, and are filling!
