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!

Easy Instant Pot Healthy Gourmet Chicken Madeira
This easy, healthy Chicken Madeira made in the Instant Pot is a warm comfort dish with pieces of tender chicken, luscious mushrooms, and fresh asparagus topped with a bit of parmesan and mozzarella cheese. Serve it over rice or zucchini noodles for a lower carb option.
Why did I make over Chicken Madeira into a healthier dish?
One of my loyal readers, Irene, asked me to make over this recipe. To tell you the truth, I hadn't actually made Chicken Madeira before this request. I have ...
Healthy Instant Pot Chicken Soup with Homemade Noodles
Why Homemade Noodles?
I love to put homemade noodles in chicken noodle soup. They remind me of my childhood. My grandmother made the best homemade egg noodles. As a young girl, I remember sitting on the kitchen stool in her tiny kitchen with avocado green appliances watching my Granny roll out the dough, cut the noodles with her big knife (the one pictured below), then carefully shake them out. They were cooked in the broth she had made from baking a roast earlier in the day. She ...
Healthy Stuffed Delicata Squash with Spicy Chicken Sausage and Cranberries
Why do I love this recipe?
This Healthy Stuffed Delicata Squash with Spicy Chicken Sausage and Cranberries recipe is one of my favorite dinners for three reasons:
It is easy and comes together very quickly (under 30 minutes) if you already have the chicken sausage made in the freezer. You can also buy chicken sausage but you may want to add your own seasonings. If you use my chicken sausage recipe, you don't need to add any spices.
It's only 2 Freestyle Smart Points and very filling! ...
Parmesan Crusted Chicken Bruschetta over Zucchini Noodles
This Parmesan Crusted Chicken Bruschetta is definitely a crowd pleaser and is super simple to make. If you have my Quick and Easy Roasted Cherry Tomato Sauce already made in the freezer, it's even faster but don't skimp on the Burrata cheese as it really makes the dish. Serve it over zucchini noodles or pasta.
The secret to the crispiness of the Parmesan Crusted Chicken Bruschetta is to allow the breaded chicken to sit in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes. This is a tip I learned ...
Summer Chicken Salad with Tomatoes, Grilled Peaches and Cumin Lime Vinaigrette
This Summer Chicken Salad with Tomatoes, Grilled Peaches and Cumin Lime Vinaigrette came about because of my love for tomatoes. I can not even tell you how much I love fresh tomatoes. This love affair began when I moved to California until then, I don't think I really knew how good tomatoes could be.
When I moved to Seattle (after living 18 years in California) I was devastated because I couldn't grow tomatoes in the first house we lived in. I even had to start buying cherry tomatoes in the ...
Indian Chicken Cauliflower Wrap with Cilantro Lime Cream
This Indian Chicken Cauliflower Wrap was inspired by my good friend Cheryl. She invited me over to her house this spring and served a fantastic lunch. Everything was amazing from her house, to the table setting to the delicious food! It was a fun afternoon! She told me later she wanted me to experiment with the wrap and create a recipe for the website, so I did! She knows how much I love to play around with food.
Serve this in a wrap or eat it as a side dish or snack
You can serve this as a ...
Mini Chicken Basil Parmesan Pita Appetizers
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. Every summer they put on concerts behind the winery. It's one of my favorite summertime activities. I make various appetizers and pack them away in my picnic basket and cooler. 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 ...
Easy Instant Pot Gourmet Chicken Cordon Bleu
How did this Easy Instant Pot Gourmet Chicken Cordon Bleu come about?
Last week I was in the mood for Chicken Cordon Bleu. I was thinking I might try and make a comfort type dish in my Instant Pot. I had my own Chicken Cordon Bleu recipe in mind to make over but I decided to check out the internet for inspiration and found one that sounded pretty good. In fact the recipe I found was rated high and one person said her family loved it so much - she made it twice in one week! Score!
Crispy Creamy Avocado Chicken Bacon Wrap
This Crispy Creamy Avocado Chicken Bacon Wrap is a twist on Avocado Toast. My guacamole with it's surprise ingredient is what brings it all together. And it also has bacon! Who doesn't love bacon? I'm sure there are a few people out there who don't, but please don't comment! This is a fairly quick recipe to put together if you already have cooked chicken and tortillas on hand. It would be great for lunch or dinner with a side salad. Very filling!
