Mommy's Dinner Helper

I found a new line of products in the store that can be a busy girl's best friend in the kitchen... McCormick Recipe Inspirations spice mixes. These things are very cool! It's basically a recipe with the pre-measured spices that you'd need and all you do is add the protein & veggies... and presto dinner!

We're having Rosemary Roasted Chicken with Potatoes tonight for dinner - and I literally had it in the oven in 5 minutes... it just took me long enough to cut the potatoes up and the chicken... mix and put it in the oven. Can't get any better than that!


They've got lots of other flavors that you can look for as well...
  • Apple & Sage Pork Chops
  • Asian Sesame Salmon
  • Caribbean Grilled Steak
  • Chicken Marsala
  • Chicken Cacciatore
  • Chicken Tikka Masala
  • Garlic Lime Fajitas
  • Quesadilla Casserole
  • Shrimp & Pasta Primavera
  • Spanish Chicken Skillet
  • Tuscan Chicken Stew
I also bought the Chicken Cacciatore one as well - which I think I'd make and serve over rice or pasta... but it looks equally as easy to prepare - I just need to have mushrooms on hand. I just thought these were very cool, and the back of the package is a recipe card that you can keep to make the meal again with your own spices.

I had to share something that might make your lives easier in the evenings... no matter what else you have going on - we ALL could use a few more minutes to relax with the ones we love!
