Thai Chicken Pizza

The first time I ate Thai Chicken Pizza was at my friend Barbara’s house.  She made it for a big group of hungry teenagers.  They devoured it!  Our family has declared it a favorite meal.   I have to admit it has become my favorite pizza ever.

You can purchase a premade pizza crust or make your own.  I personally like the pizza dough recipe found here on Mel’s Kitchen Cafe.

It does take a few extra steps, but oh it is so worth it!  I like to bake the chicken and cut up the veggies up to a day ahead to save time when making this pizza.

Try it…you will like it.

Chicken Salad Sandwiches with a Hint of Lime

Posted on

Chicken Salad Sandwiches.  It’s time for light lunches and nicer weather.
Winter has held on far too long this year.

We served these on mini-croissants at a Women’s Conference at our church recently.  About 150 women attended.  We had a great time together and enjoyed munching on these lovely sandwiches.

These are easy to put together and look so nice.  My boys like them made on Hawaiian rolls too.  The recipe makes 5 cups of chicken salad.  The size of roll you serve it on with determine how many servings you will get.

Savory Orzo

Greetings from the long lost blogger 🙂

It has been REALLY cold here in Michigan.  Last week we were down to -25 with the wind chill.  It’s been a really strange Fall and Winter so far.  We had a wind storm that whipped through the area leaving hundreds of downed trees and power lines.  We lost power for 3 days, but thankfully didn’t have any structural damage.  We’ve had a LOT of snow and ice.  The kids have had school cancelled more times than has been allotted for the whole year.
Today, however it is a balmy 33 degrees!

We’ve eaten a lot of our favorite recipes lately without much experimenting with new ones.  The one I have to share with you today has become an instant favorite with the whole family.  It is easy to make and uses ingredients I always have on hand.  Give it a try and come back to let me know what you think!

I love the little orzo pasta.  In this recipe it makes a delicious side dish.  It can also be used in soups, casseroles, etc.  It cooks up fast and is a great alternative to rice.

Somehow I always think that Summer will bring me more time to catch up on things and relax a little.  I am finding however, that every summer my life seems to get busier.
So now I am telling myself that when school starts and we are on a schedule, I will have more time.
I’m in denial, I know 🙂

Now onto a new recipe!!!!

I really, really LOVE Guacamole.  I order a side of it whenever we go out for Mexican food.  There are a ton of different variations to be found.  I looked at several recipes online and began adding ingredients I thought my family would like.  We were headed to an impromptu potluck with friends and this was my offering.  It was a HIT and soon the bowl was completely empty!  I am very happy with how it turned out.
I have halved this recipe for my boys and I.  Believe me…I could eat the whole batch all by myself, but I am trying to be good 🙂
Avocados are good for you, right?!

Sweet Curried Chicken

My family really enjoys a sweet curry I have made from a box mix.  I did not love it so much.  When I came across a recipe to make my own, I decided to give it a try.  The results?  5 stars from all of us!  I like that I can vary the curry flavor to my own taste and we all loved the curry-citrus sauce.  I adapted it to make it easier and to suite my families tastes.  I hope you like it too!

Sweet Baked Chicken

I just got back from a two week trip to visit family and to take my daughter to get her wisdom teeth removed.  It was a busy trip and I am happy to be home again.  While I was there, I ate some leftover baked chicken my mom had made the night before.  It was really good, slightly sweet and nice and moist.  I couldn’t determine what she had used for the flavor, so I asked her.  She smiled a little sheepishly and said “Well, I was out of corn flakes so I used Frosted Flakes.”  I decided to try it out on my family last night and it was a hit!   This recipe is super easy and tastes great!
