Wild Mushroom Pizza with Caramelized Onions, Garlic, Zucchini and Truffle Oil
Ever since I purchased my Breville Pizzaiola oven, I've been dreaming up new ways to do pizza/flatbread. This Wild Mushroom Pizza with Chicken, Caramelized Onions, Garlic, Zucchini and Truffle Oil pizza was inspired by my absolute favorite pizza, from La Bicyclette in Carmel, California. Theirs is called, "Champignons," and is oh so delicious! If you love mushrooms, this is the pizza for you! I'm sure theirs has a ton of calories, you can just taste them as it's so rich!

Not long ago I came across a bakery with Jalapeño Scones. Why in the world didn't I ever think of that combination before? I have lots of fruit scone recipes, cheddar scones and savory ham and ...

These Mini Chicken Basil Parmesan Pita Appetizers are the first recipe in my wine concert picnic series. I belong to Chateau St. Michelle in Woodinville, Washington.

We spread a blanket on the grass, set up our short beach chairs and table, pour our glasses of wine and the party begins! It's so much fun listening to ...
Healthy Jalapeño Adobo Turkey Sliders
These Healthy Jalapeño Adobo Turkey Sliders are a variation of my Scrumptious Turkey Sliders and use my Chipotle seasoning. They are on the spicy side but not too hot. (You can always adjust the heat by using less chipotle seasoning, jalapeños and chipotle peppers). Serve with my Slider Bun, a dollop of my Jalapeño Cream and a nice salad on the side, all for 2 points! If you have the turkey sliders and buns in the freezer, you can reheat them in a jiffy for a quick lunch or dinner.

Cilantro Chicken Black Bean Wrap with Lime Cream
This Cilantro Chicken Black Bean Wrap with Lime Cream recipe is adapted from one of my tea room recipes, Cilantro and Black Bean Salad. This was such a popular salad at my former tea room, Afternoon to Remember in Newcastle, California. The original salad recipe you can find in my afternoon tea cookbook, Twelve Teas to Remember. Unfortunately it wasn't a very point friendly salad with the mayonnaise and oil in the dressing thus the reason I decided to update it into a healthy wrap. It can be ...
This salsa is great by itself but is an excellent complement to my Pineapple Skillet Fajitas. Basically a pico de gallo with pineapple! My family likes things spicy so I add quite a bit of jalapeño. It balances nicely with the sweetness of the pineapple. Feel free to leave the jalapeños out if you're not a fan of spicy food. It tastes great without the spice as well. I also like to serve the salsa in 1/2 of a hollowed out pineapple shell for a unique presentation.
