Light and Skinny Slow Cooker Creamy Buffalo Chicken Dip or Salad

Yes I know I am posting yet ANOTHER Buffalo Chicken recipe. I can’t help it. I love all things hot sauce and blue cheese and when I find another twist that I think is absolutely delicious and over the top I MUST SHARE. Especially when it is only 104 calories per serving. A few weeks Continue reading →

Who the heck wants to turn the oven on during sticky humid 80 degree days – not this girl! Chicken salad is one of my favorite sandwich fillings. It is easy to Continue reading →

Bruschetta Baked Chicken

Bruschetta is one of my favorite ways to eat up the abundance of summer tomatoes and basil popping up in gardens and at the farmers markets this time of year. Usually, I am happy just eating it for a snack or appetizer, on a piece of toasted baguette, but this time I was in the Continue reading →
