Buffalo Blue Baked Potato

Buffalo Blue Baked Potato

I was searching Pinterest for some ideas to use with my cooking classes for kids when I found a recipe for Chicken Cordon Bleu Potatoes. I was curious enough and clicked through to the blog, Will Cook For Smiles, and liked what I saw. The only problem is I didn’t have all the ingredients on … Continue reading

Chicken Cacciatore

Once again it’s cooking class time for me. The month of January has been filled with one class after another. I do enjoy every minute of the classes. Sometimes the prep work of recipe research and shopping can be taxing but it’s all part of what I do. There are ways to make those parts … Continue reading

Around my house we like different combinations of flavors and textures … Continue reading

Bacon Wrapped Chicken Involtini Revisted

Classic Italian Roasted Chicken

I think all cooks should know how to roast a whole chicken. It’s so incredibly easy and much tastier than those little rotisserie chickens you can pick up at the local big box grocery store. Whole roasting chickens usually go on sale for a price that is comparable to the pre-made version but you get … Continue reading

Rosemary and Garlic Chicken

I adapted this recipe from Real Simple’s recipe of the day from Jan. 11, 2011. I made a few minor changes but otherwise kept to the instructions. We loved this!  I decided after reading the amount of vinegar (1/2 cup) that went into the recipe we might be turned off by the flavor and ended … Continue reading
