There Is A First Time For Everything!


I don’t normally talk about recipes on my blog, in fact I am not sure that I have ever done a post on a recipe.

I am stepping out of my box because I have found two really great and easy recipes to share with you.

I found them on Pinterest , of course. If you visit my boards you will see three boards dedicated to food. One Healthy food-Healthy living, Food and Appetizers!

The first recipe falls in the Food category. I think is is so easy and good enough to possibly impress company!! I am all about easy, good tasting and impressive all wrapped up in a recipe and by wrapped up, this one literally is wrapped up!!

Kaytucky Chicken

It is a chicken breast stuffed with cream cheese filling and wrapped in puffed pastry. I kid you not, this recipe was sooo easy to make and full of flavor.

I tweaked it just a tad: It calls for Spring onions (green onions,) I just received my farm fresh produce box, and it had fresh organic leeks so I used those chopped.

I also used real, not fake bacon bits instead of the type of bacon she used.

Here is how it looks before it is wrapped up and cooked….

To go to the site where the recipe originated just click Here!  You can thank me later, trust me on this one. If you need a recipe for chicken this will be the one for you.

Don’t go away yet, I have one more that takes a few more steps but also well worth the effort.

You will find this recipe pinned in my Healthy Lifestyle-Healthy Food pin board……

Chicken Rollitini

The only suggestion I have on this recipe is to have all ingredients chopped, and lined up before proceeding. I found it to be much easier that way. I have made this twice and both times  ♥♥♥ it!

A chicken breast stuffed with zucchini, mozzarella and Romano cheese, covered in bread crumbs, and baked until crisp.

Best part one serving is 171 calories. For a main dish, you can not beat that one!!

To go to the original site for the recipe just click HERE!

My very first cooking post!!! I love good food, and I will do what it takes to make it taste good with-in reason, but I am not a gourmet cook. I have always said I would rather set a pretty table than cook the meal.

Since this is a design blog I have to leave you with a few pretty pictures of dining rooms, and table settings!!

I found this room to look so inviting for a family dinner. Love the rustic touches with the elegance of the mirror. The full bank of windows doesn’t hurt either. I do love lots of light!!

I could just see the above table with a table setting like this one……. ( I personally might use a few less elements, but the general look and feel go with the above dining room, IMHO)

This next dining space had me from the get-go! I could move right into this whole house. This house was featured on Cote De Texas and I fell in love with it. If you would like to see the whole house just click on the link below the picture.

Another long table with a bank of windows and light filled! I am beginning to see a pattern here. I can see this table set like this one below………

Now you not only have two new recipes for the weekend, but two table setting ideas!!
