Chicken Cordon Bleu Sliders

Goodness knows I’m not a huge sports fan. I just don’t have the attention span to sit and follow most things on TV. Unless maybe it’s food related, lol! But yanno what I can get behind on game day? The food! There’s just something about the fun party food that shows up around every football party, and these Chicken Cordon Bleu Sliders are the perfect example of fun food.

Autumn Almond Pear Granola

Autumn Almond Pear Granola

Fall. I’m not too excited about it this year. We’ve had days of heavy storm and rains and during one of the storms, a huge willow on the city’s property that butts up to my yard came down, taking about five of my good sized oaks with it. I’m looking forward to things clearing up and those coolish but still warm days when the sun is shining and the leaves crunch underfoot. And I’m looking forward to eating my Autumn Almond Pear Granola.

I wish we all had time to stand in front of the barbecue and have parties on the deck (or by the pool if you’re so lucky) but man, sometimes we’re just busy and need to eat! That’s when this big batch of Honey Barbecue Pulled Chicken is a lifesaver.

Gingerbread Granola

Ya might think that I’d have gotten my share of Gingerbread over the Holidays, but it just didn’t work out. I wanted to find the time to make Gingerbread Men. I really did. I was so psyched about them. I even got the cookie cutters out and everything…

Famous Dave's Cornbread

Famous Dave’s Cornbread

If you want an incredible, moist, fluffy cornbread, you’ve got to try Famous Dave Anderson’s recipe for his Famous Dave’s Cornbread. He claims it’s even better than his corn muffins that are served at his Famous Dave’s restaurants. I agree!

Chicken & Fruit Salad with Raspberry Dressing

I’ve been making this Chicken & Fruit Salad for years, originally culled from Cooking Light. It’s just such a gorgeous salad, full of all kinds of great things and it’s all set off by a creamy raspberry dressing. It’s one of my favorite ways to make sure I get some fruit in my diet along with a few greens. On a hot summer day, there’s nothing better.

Healthier Energy Bars

When my son was a teenager and became interested in working out, he immediately “sparked” to the idea of “energy” bars! He’s not alone; energy bars are a huge industry, many full of heavily processed ingredients. A black mark in my book. That they’re expensive is a double damn. That so many present as healthy when they’re way over the top in calories? Well, that’s a triple damn! Why not just have a piece of cake and be done with it!!
