Stuffing

Making stuffing is not just fun and delicious around the holidays but good with baked chicken breast or a whole chicken. I like to use Chicken Broth, cooked with butter, chopped celery, onions, chicken liver, mushrooms, walnuts, and breadcrumbs. I don’t know what makes this such a high fat food, other than it being a…

Stuffed Bell Peppers

This is an easy bake meal with a few different variations.  You can choose either green, yellow, orange or red bell peppers.  I prefer a mix of all different colors for variety and taste. You’ll want to wash and cut the bell pepper at the top; using a knife to hallow out the insides.  You…

Shrimp and Sausage Jambalaya

This is an all time favorite Chicken, Shrimp and or Sausage with Rice Dish.  It’s somewhat on the spicy side, but you can control the heat by using less cajun seasoning.  I prefer to just buy a box of Uncle Ben’s Jambalya mix and add Bell Pepper, Chicken, Shrimp, and or Sausage, but you can…

My Bruschetta

I love bruschetta and all the many ways you can serve it. Take a French Roll, cut it into small bread pieces.  You can either spread it with butter or top it with freshly chopped tomatoes, garlic, and a finely chopped basil leaf, a little bit of Parmesan or mozzarella, drizzled with olive oil, baked…

Sauteed Vegetables

Take any vegetable and steam it to your liking; then sautee it in Olive Oil and garlic, basil, thyme, oregano or whatever spice blend you wish.  Change it up by using margarine or butter; mix in some white wine if you want.  Have fun with spices. Cover it with a Cheese Sauce or Sauce made…

The Smoothie!

The smoothie can be made in so many ways; either a sweet desert made with ice cream and fresh fruit; or yogurt for breakfast; or even fresh pureed vegetables mixed with fruit for the right healthy sweet combination.  I don’t add sugar, so they’re made with fresh, raw ingredients for the best health benefits. The…

Fried Chicken and Garlic Mashed Potatoes

I rarely indulge in this because it’s fried, but always satisfying when I do. Fried Chicken is not difficult to make; the only secret is the coating, oil temperature, and the art of covering the chicken while it fries.  The gravy is the secret, and requires your own special touch to come out just right….
