Bon Appetit! The Monogrammed apron was named after my favorite apron. It was given to me by two wonderful women, Robin Polster and Felicia McCoy. I have always loved to cook and grew up in a catering family. As a young child I would sit in the kitchen at Yearly Haven Catering and watch Miss Lucy and Gertie cook up a storm. They taught me many things. I would help do whatever they would let me help

I made this for Memorial Day and it was a hit. The Puffy Muffin in Brentwood, TN serves one like this, except they use mayo instead of cream cheese. I like them both! Also, I prefer it frozen, so I did not let it thaw.

FROZEN STRAWBERRY SALAD

3⁄4 cup sugar
8 ounces light cream cheese, softened
10 ounces frozen sliced strawberries, thawed
20 ounces crushed pineapple
10 ounces Cool Whip, thawed

Directions:

Drain pineapple.
In a large bowl, cream together the sugar and cream cheese.
Add the strawberries and pineapple.
fold in the cool whip.
Freeze in a 9 x 13 pan or in cupcake liners.
To serve: Thaw the 9 x 13 pan for about 20 minutes.
Cut into squares and serve.

Well, it's been a bit since I posted anything on this page, forgive me. Today, I was in my Winter Garden and I have an over abundance of kale, collards and arugula, one human can't eat it all! I decided to make a Quinoa & Kale Salad, so here's the recipe:

2 cups of cooked Quinoa
6 to 8 grape tomatoes diced
1 cucumber peeled and diced
1 cup of coarsely chopped kale
3 tablespoons of Blood Orange Olive oil
3 tablespoons of Cranberry Pear Vinegar

Mix it all together, salt & pepper to taste. You can also add sliced almonds, dried cranberries. However, the cupboard was bare of these items. :)

I am totally addicted to the flavored olive oils and vinegar's. These stores are popping up all over the place. There's one in almost every town I visit for work. I bought the above oils at one called "Olive Tree and Vine" in Cartersville, Ga. However, there is one near my house called, "Olive + Vi", in Roswell, GA. So if you see one of these stores, check it out! I am sure you can find a few online and I think they ship the product.

Enjoy!

Artichoke Pesto, Caper & Sundried Tomato Chicken
What you will need:
4 skinless chicken breast
1 small jar of capers drained
1 jar of Trader Joe’s Artichoke pesto or any other brand
1 /2 cup of sundried tomatoes.
1/2 cup of parmesan cheese optional
EVOO –Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Salt and Pepper
Steps to an impressive dinner success:tender
1. Preheat oven to 375
2. Grease a glass baking dish that will fit all four breasts with EVOO..Extra Virgin Olive Oil
3. Rinse the chicken in cold water and pat dry with a paper towel. Salt and pepper each side and place in the baking dish.
4. Place in the oven for about 30 minutes.
5. While the chicken is cooking mix the artichoke pesto, capers and sundried tomatoes together in a small bowl.
6. Remove the chicken after 30 minutes. It should be tender and about 15 minutes from being completely done. We don’t want to overcook it and this will depend on the thickness of the chicken breast. I usually butterfly mine when they are thick.
7. Spread the Artichoke mixture all over the top of the chicken
8. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and continue baking for 15 minutes.
You can serve this with a salad or your favorite vegetable.
Enjoy!

Cauliflower Rice ready for the freezer. Simply cook a head of cauliflower or two until tender, yet firm. Cut in small pieces and press through the ricer...the silver item in the pictures. Let cool and freeze in single size servings. I use this instead if rice. It's great with Curry or anything else you serve with rice.

What's going to be on your plate for New Year's Day Dinner? If you are a Southerner like myself, it is probably.... collard greens (fortune), black-eyed peas (good luck), and pork (wealth and prosperity), along with a big ole piece of cornbread to get the juices from the beans & collards. A long lived silly traditional meal filled with superstition that most of us continue to consume. Why? because it's dang good and it's what we do in the South to celebrate with friends and family. So, what will be on your plate on New Year's Day? What's your traditional meal? Whatever it is, may you be blessed in many ways in 2016! PS..I do not own this photo....thanks google.

Happy Thanksgiving and many blessings!

Dinner last night is always one of my favorites! Kalua Pig from Nom Nom Paleo. Best part of this recipe is that you can toss it in the slow cooker and it's no fuss! The recipe is in the link below.

You can use the pork for a number of different dishes..Taco's, BBQ, Twice Cooked Pork are just a few. Another great way to serve this is topped with a jar of Salsa Verde!

I like to make Kalua Pork Lettuce Leaf Taco's. I use sweet lettuce leafs, stuff them with the pork, add some salsa of your choice and top with guacamole. This makes a perfect #whole30 or #paleomeal. I purchased the salt through Amazon.

Enjoy!

Today, I honored a dear friend by carrying on her Christmas Tradition. My dear friend Lynne Allen passed away a few months ago and it was unexpected and sudden. Lynne and I worked together at Monet. We were always roommates during market in NYC. Lynne was a jewel. She sparkled and left sparkles wherever she went. Every year she would make turtles for the holidays. I always loved the annual turtle making pictures. Heaven definitely gained an Angel with Lynne. So, today and every year from here on out, I will honor my friend by making her famous Turtles. Here is her recipe and pictures of her and also my first attempt at turtle making! RIP Lynne my dear sweet friend.
