Pesto Chicken Sandwich

Pesto Chicken Sandwich

Yesterday I shared with you how to make fresh basil pesto- you really need to take a few minutes to make it.  It is so good in so many things, but I'm most excited to use it for this pesto chicken sandwich.  I think this is one of my new favorites- it is so amazingly fresh tasting and so fast to put together.  All you need is a little rotisserie chicken, Greek yogurt and pesto-  totally fresh and healthy -  perfect to pack for lunch or even for a light summer supper.

Pimento Cheese Dip/Spread

Pimento Cheese


Are you thinking a healthy veggies tray with an awesome dip would be a fabulous addition to your Super Bowl Spread?  Great idea.  This homemade Pimento Cheese Dip is so fresh and so, so  good – perfect with some crunchy veggies or crackers.  Beware- you’ll find it somewhat addictive!

My most vivid memory of Pimento Cheese is an orange spread that came in cute little jars which you then spread into celery sticks at Thanksgiving.  Don’t you remember that iconic appetizer? Read More

Sloppy Tacos

If one of your goals this New Year  is to pull up to the dinner table more often than the drive through – have I got a great menu choice for you!  These sloppy tacos are the best of two worlds:  Tacos and Sloppy Joes.  Two great family favorites on their own, but combined they make for a family meal that will bring everyone home.

A few months ago this recipe from the Off-Site Kitchen in Dallas appeared in Bon Appetit.  My sister made the tacos and really liked them, and asked if I’d ever been there- I’d had never
