Apple Stuffed Chicken Breasts The components of this meal may seem a bit odd (apples and cheese stuffed inside chicken…come again??) but it is truly delicious. And guess what? It is quick and easy. Basically a good, old-fashioned boneless, skinless chicken breast gets a major makeover by being stuffed with a simple mixture of crisp apples, creamy cheese and a few other helpful ingredients. Browned and simmered in chicken broth until cooked through, the stuffed chicken stays deliciously moist and is complimented by an extremely wonderful and simple sauce. Talking about chicken for dinner leads me to my next question which I’ve been curious about for a while. One Year Ago: Guacamole SaldTwo Years Ago: Simple Orzo PilafThree Years Ago: Raspberry Lime Rickey Apple Stuffed Chicken Breasts Ingredients Directions If the chicken breasts you are using are on the thicker side, slice a pocket in the center of the thickest part to use for stuffing in the apple mixture (similar to this method).

Healthy Chicken Nuggets {Baked} Basically, to reiterate the compliments flying around the dinner table the night I served these, I would simply have to state: Mom rules! McDonald’s drools! {Insert fist pump} A light, crunchy, flavorful breading envelopes tender, juicy pieces of chicken, which are baked not fried. From the children who aspire to live beneath the golden arches (despite their mother’s attempts to brainwash them otherwise), these chicken nuggets were so well-received that I nearly got contracts signed in blood that they will never ask to eat at you-know-where again.

Skinny Baked Mozzarella Sticks Part-skim mozzarella sticks coated with crispy seasoned breadcrumbs and baked until hot and golden. Serve them with my quick marinara sauce and you have yourself an appetizer everyone will love. Hot mozzarella sticks, I can't think of a more popular finger food with both kids and adults alike! Of course, you'll want to serve them hot right out of the oven, because like any cheese, as they cool they harden. It actually took me several attempts to get these perfect. These are freezer friendly, in fact these MUST be frozen before you bake them or you will have one big cheesy mess in your oven!

no-bake energy bites I probably should have poured a nice stiff drink recipe for you all on this loveliest of lovely tax days. Especially for my fellow small business owners who just gave half of their revenue back to the government. Good grief, I won’t even go there. Instead though, I thought I’d offer my idea of a more comforting alternative. Pasta. When life is good, and when life gets crazy, I turn to pasta. And just as it has for years, this one hit the spot.

Homemade Calzone I wanted to make something to take on the road, but the contents of the refrigerator were saying PIZZA. Hmmm... pizza is not so portable. Then I remembered CALZONE! Calzone is basically the same as pizza but with a much prettier appearance. If you want to impress your family, make your regular pizza into a calzone, and watch them "ooh and ahh." Roll pizza dough into a rectangle the length of your baking sheet. Put sauce on the center half of the dough. Just like pizza, add your toppings (our favorites are pepperoni, olives, and mushrooms). Then add cheese. Now comes the special part. This is what it looks like when all the cuts are made. Then "wrap the baby." Here is the calzone ready to bake. Uh oh... don't do what I did. For the second one, I remembered to start with my rectangle of dough ON a baking sheet. By the way, the same dough wrapping technique can be used for sweet fillings too.

Spaghetti with Sauteed Chicken and Grape Tomatoes This recipe was inspired by the abundance of tomatoes and basil in my garden. These grape tomatoes are so sweet and addicting.

Fruit-Filled Puff Pastry Donuts with Lemon Glaze Fruit-Filled Puff Pastry Donuts with Lemon Glaze There seems to be this sudden craze for homemade donuts in the food blogging world, and it’s got me craving them BAD. But since I don’t have any of the fancy equipment needed to bake or fry them properly, I wanted to try to make these decadent little breakfast treats in a different way. These soft, flaky puff pastry donuts with a filling of sugared fresh fruit and a lemon glaze were so good. And since there’s fresh fruit in there, that means they’re good for you, right? Though these donuts don’t require anything more than a baking sheet, the warm and gooey taste still give you the same satisfaction as your everyday donut. Great for feeding hungry guests, or just a small family who wants something different and decadent with their morning coffee, these lemon-glazed fruit donuts will be sure to hit the spot! I used strawberries, bananas and pineapple to fill mine, but feel free to experiment with different berries and fillings. Print Save 1 egg

Cheesy Garlic Sticks All righty. Cheesy Garlic Sticks. I make them all the time. I don't make my own pizza dough. When you get your dough, it may need to be 'proofed', which just means it may need to rise. Next up for me to decide on was the type of cheese. After that, I grabbed a spoon and my jar of minced garlic from the fridge (I know, I know, but I love that stuff), I drizzled just a little bit of the garlic infused oil on the pizza, as well as some of the minced garlic itself. I've also added dried garlic powder to this, in addition to the garlic oil / minced garlic, to make it extra potent. All in all, I thought it tasted fantastic. Cheesy Garlic Sticks Makes 1 pizza Ingredients 1 premade pizza dough from a pizzeriaolive oil for brushing dough1 ball of mozzarella (not the kind in water, the kind that is vacuum sealed), you will use about half of a ball, depending on the size of it1 tablespoon minced garlic, with flavored oilItalian spices DirectionsPrepare the crust: Transfer to a baking pizza pan.

Crispy Southwest Chicken Wraps Update 6/2012: Taken after the model of these delicious wraps, I threw these together for dinner one night nearly three years ago in a frantic attempt to feed my hungry family and use ingredients I already had on hand. And the result was such a smashing success that we’ve continued to enjoy this recipe at least monthly since (and that’s saying a lot coming from the lady who doesn’t repeat many meals). Full of flavor, these wraps are a snap to make. The method turns out a delightfully crunchy tortilla that is filled with rice, chicken, beans, spices and cheese. And they make great leftovers. I just love it when a meal happens to fit all the criteria I love: healthful, fast, delicious. Crispy Southwest Chicken Wraps Note: This is one of the most adaptable recipes on here (reading through the comments will prove that – your variations sound amazing!). Ingredients Directions Mix rice together with chili powder, cumin and garlic salt. Printed from Mel's Kitchen Cafe (
