Ingredients 2 cups of ice 1 cup frozen sliced strawberries 12 ounces non-fat vanilla yogurt 6 ounces of a juice Blend to perfection.

I really enjoy making "homemade" pizza because of the crust. Go to your favorite pizza place and purchase a dough ball for very little money. I paid $2 for mine. Ingredients 2-3 lbs chicken breasts 2 tablespoons olive oil Salt and pepper to taste (about 1/2 teaspoon each) 1-1 1/2 cups pizza sauce (depending on… Continue reading D’s Chicken and Bell Pepper Pizza
I picked up the kale salad recipe from Whole Foods Market's website after I attended a Chef Demo last month. I've never had kale but I must've had 15 sample cups of this stuff. It's really fun to chop, too. It chops like you wish every green would. Ingredients 1 bunch of kale, stemmed and… Continue reading Kale, Carrot, and Avocado Salad
We had Mexican night last night. My cousin's in town and two of my wonderful friends joined us for dinner and drinks. Guacamole, pico de gallo, tacos, margaritas...and Tres Leches cake. I made this cake once before, from scratch but this is with a boxed cake mix and it still turned around really well. Tres… Continue reading Tres Leches
My own version. And no it doesn't taste like PF Changs. No one can touch that. They turned out pretty good and I have to say I patted myself on the back and ate 3 servings of this stuff. A friend of mine told me he was going to eat at Ichiban tonight so that… Continue reading Chicken Lettuce Wraps

I get my inspiration mostly from things I'd like to try to cook...and my cravings. This time around, I was thinking more of "What's cheap and will stretch?". Soup. Just got the most recent Southern Living and found the Baked Potato Soup recipe. They listed using frozen cooked potatoes but I went the long way… Continue reading Baked Potato Soup
Pinterest is my new best friend. The ideas are endlist. A lot of people joke about how Pinterest contributes to hours and hours of mindless surfing without ever really accomplishing anything. I am proud to say...that's not me. My list of "have to try's" is growing longer and longer. Neufchatel cheese is usually found close… Continue reading Sopapilla Cheesecake
I'm cooking this for a friend. But, of course, I need a batch for myself so nevermind the quantites of "stuff" in the pictures. I don't recommend cooking 2 batches at one time. I like this recipe because it's got everything in it. Casserole and bakes are great for that. Cheesy Chicken and Rice Bake (adapted… Continue reading Cheesy Chicken and Rice Bake
I don't know what in the world got me started on guacamole today. Maybe it is because I'm making a cheesy chicken Mexican casserole tomorrow. Maybe it is because my friend Sue was talking about avocadoes. Maybe because I ate a Santa Fe Chicken sandwich (with guacamole) today. I have never made guacamole nor have… Continue reading Quickie Guacamole
I was on Pinterest and ran across this Lemon Yogurt Anything Cake so I mentally went through my cabinets (Do you do that instead of getting up?) and decided all I needed was another tub of Greek yogurt. Originally, this recipe called for a "gentle folding" of blueberries into the batter. Well, I forgot to… Continue reading Lemon-Blueberry Yogurt Bread
A fellow co-worker asked me for a quick chicken recipe to cook for himself and a guest. I've never been much of a recipe creator but rather more of an expert recipe follower. I've just never had the brain cells to throw a few items together and create a Martha Stewart hit. But maybe tonight… Continue reading Cavanaugh Chicken
