Sun-Dried Tomato Chicken Pasta

  The other night, I needed a quick-and-painless, easy dinner to feed my family. I’ve always been a fan of sun-dried tomatoes, but I wasn’t sure how they would go over with the kids.

  If you were to ask my 10-year-old son who his favorite Avenger is, he would not hesitate to say HAWKEYE. In fact, Jeremy Renner is his favorite actor. He has a Hawkeye action figure in his room and he decorated his journal with Hawkeye photos. So when I told him that I would be […]
