correct breaker, and cable ?

I was just checking out my breaker box and I noticed that the house outlets and lights are wired with 14/2 cable, into 20 amp breakers. Is this correct ? I thought 20 amp breakers should be run with 12/2 cable ! ?

You are correct in your thinking. Replace those breakers with 15 amps.
