Chicken Salad Pizza

chicken salad pizza

We eat a lot of homemade pizza. Weekly, sometimes more, Joe throws a few ingredients into my big stand mixer, and he whips up a pizza crust. Joe’s pizza crusts are amazing. They are thick and chewy, but the outside and edges get a little crispy and crunchy. They brown perfectly. I’m salivating even thinking about his homemade pizza. The one we had this week was especially tasty because it was not a typical pizza. Lettuce, ranch dressing, and shredded chicken topped his fabulous crust this time. Last week, I we got a new couch. Behind the old couch, we … Read more

Quick & Easy Chicken Curry with Cilantro Couscous

How to make the best quick & easy chicken curry with cilantro couscous - This simple Indian recipe is perfect for weeknight dinners.

Joe and I have started a new adventure, inspired by our friend, Joanne. Joanne, who normally cooks very little, has made it her mission to cook a new recipe every week.

We were inspired. We’ve decided to do the same. This was our first experiment. It was delicious.   Adapted from a Pampered Chef recipe A Final Note (or two) I think this would be … Read more

Chicken Tetrazzini

Quick & easy chicken tetrazzini casserole recipes - This simple and healthy 15 minute meal is "baked" in the microwave oven using boneless chicken, asparagus, mushrooms, pasta, and a creamy sauce.

Joe made this pasta dish this week, and (after it was prepared), he informed me that I would not like it. He said it was bland and lacked spices. Terrific, Dear! I never had any tetrazzini before, so I didn’t know what to expect. After his proclamation, I considered going out to eat. By myself. At a restaurant with jazz music and dim lights and no children’s menu. Imagine the peace and quiet of a meal alone! Bliss! I didn’t go. I stayed home and took my chances with the tetrazzini. I’m glad I did; it was delicious. The casserole … Read more

Broccoli, Chicken, Cheese, and Rice Casserole

The best broccoli, cheese & rice main dish casserole recipe - This simple and easy recipe uses Velveeta and shredded chicken to make a rich and creamy casserole. Use fresh or frozen broccoli and bake.

  Originally posted on March 21, 2009. I’ve changed the recipe a bit since then. I do not know where this recipe came from. I got it from a friend, who got it from a friend, who’d also gotten it from a friend. It’s like a chain letter, only you’ll love it. Broccoli, Cheese, and Rice Casserole is supposed to be a side dish. It’s delicious and flavorful. We never eat it as a side dish any more. When we make this, we open a can of shredded chicken and call it a meal. This is equally good with frozen … Read more

Chicken and Cheese Stuffed Zucchini

chicken and cheese stuffed zucchini

The last time we went to the beach, we came home to a dead garden. It had been quite hot during the week we were gone, and the plants simply baked. We wanted to keep our fledgling garden alive when we went to the beach this year, especially in light of the dozens of tomato and squash blossoms emerging in the days before we left.  It wasn’t an easy task, but Joe installed a sprinkler and a timer set for 6:30 am every day. It wasn’t easy because the water hook-up on the outside of the house leaks, and Joe … Read more
