This oven “fried” mustard chicken and summer slaw is a fresh and healthy playful twist on your classic fried chicken and coleslaw. It allows you to enjoy that favorite summer dish, without all the guilt. This is a play off of the Barefoot Contessa’s (aka Ina Garten, aka today’s Julia Child, aka my hero) mustard …

If you are in Florida right now, I don’t have to tell you that it’s been raining for about 37 days straight. If you aren’t in Florida, don’t come here. It’s been raining for 37 days straight. For that reason, I have been craving a good hearty chicken soup, with a lemony summer twang to …

I ran into my gorgeous friend, Cari at the grocery store tonight. She and I were discussing options for chicken dinners and when I told her I was making roast chicken, she admitted that she is completely baffled by roast chicken.

For this recipe, I did meatballs with tomato sauce over zoodles.  But, you can use any sauce or any base. This recipe makes A LOT. You can easily have leftovers …

My fabulous co-worker, and fellow foodie, Save-the-Day-Renee, picked me up some fresh and delicious Chinese dumpling wrappers at a local Asian food market that she frequents. I have had a serious hankering for pan friend dumplings recently, and Renee, as usual, saved the day when she brought me delicate and flaky dumpling skins. If you …

This is a delicious and healthy alternative to chicken salad. The goat cheese and Greek yogurt give the pesto a tangy lift and add so much flavor to the chicken. This is so easy to make, and the leftovers are perfect over a salad! Nom. Nom. Nom. Ingredients: 2 chicken breasts, cooked and shredded (I used …

This meatloaf is a serious, I mean serious, crowd pleaser, and one of The Cheese’s FAVE meals. He will eat this all week and then ask for it again on Sunday. Oh, Cheese. For this recipe, I supplement the ground turkey breast with some chicken or turkey sausage in order to give it some extra …
