Pesto Chicken Rollatini with Lemon Scented Fusilli

Pesto, like hummus, is something I haven’t ever made myself for some reason. I always just buy it. It seems easy enough to make it, and in doing so I could customize it to exactly the taste I want, but it just hasn’t happened yet. Fortunately, I found a store-bought brand that I just love. […]

Chicken Noodle Soup

Well, it’s cold and flu season, and I was a victim of it this past week. I had a nasty cold that lasted about a week, and ended with me being pretty miserable over the weekend. The good thing was that I didn’t have too much to do, so I could just laze around and […]

Garlicky Pasta with Green Beans and Tomatoes

Chicken Cordon Bleu

This was in a 5-ingredient magazine (by Taste of Home), but I decided to add a few more to make it more tasty. If you use low-fat cheese, this recipe is actually pretty healthy, and packed with protein.  I served mine with peas, roasted sweet potato, and brown rice with Craisins. Yum! Chicken Cordon Bleu […]
