Chicken & Peach Quesadilla

It is peach season!  These peaches need a little lime to help their flavor stand up to all that is going on in here.  If your peaches aren’t quite ripe yet, just add a bit of sugar, a teaspoon at a time. The less you cook the veggies the more flavor pop  they have!  Also…

Pretzel Bombs- No Wait Time!

Snickerdoodles

Tender crunch on the outside, gooey soft middle inside, this little cinnamon gem is addictive. The cream of tarter stabilizes the egg whites and creates the crunch.

Copy Cat Chick-fil-A Chicken Sandwich

Chick-fil-A has been a big part of my life in the South, It is delicious and it is convenient when you have practices, upon practices.  Somehow I always felt it was healthier….but maybe not?    I have seen several recipes that have the taste pretty spot on.

Chicken Pot Pie

A little effort goes a long way here.  I use fresh veggies, because the flavors work so well together.  The trick, I have found, is to saute those veggies together with butter, garlic, and thyme before the rest of this meal gets put together.  I used to get all excited about making the crust from…

Crepes with cream cheese and fresh fruit

We make these most years in class, but I tried these with my own teenagers over break, on our big snow day! My youngest has made these almost everyday since. Since I leave long before they get up most days, this is a recipe that works!  They are fast, protein filled, and perfectly filling. They…
