Low Calorie Monkey Bread

monkey bread 001

Sometimes Cooking Light magazine makes me wonder. I thought it was weird they wanted me to add in warm orange juice to a dough mixture. I've never seen those directions  in a recipe before. The recipe also said to add in some melted butter to the dough. I  left out the butter and used that with the cinnamon sugar mixture. Sometimes, with their recipes you can make them even lighter if you wanted too. I've noticed that with some of their baking recipes anyways. Most monkey bread recipes use c ...

Chipotle Cheesy Gravy Fries


I tried melting some Laughing Cow cheese in the microwave to make these fries. Let's just say, I probably won't be melting that kind of cheese again. The cheese didn't stay melted long and you have to pour them over the fries pretty quickly. I think the cheese sauce would have been better if I had  made the laughing cow alfredo recipe for this. If you haven't tried that recipe it's pretty darn good. The fries were still very tasty. It's fun to experiment with food and different recipes and ...

Strawbery Frozen Yogurt Recipe

frozen gurt 003

I have fallen in love with frozen yogurt, ever since I went to Tutti Frutti. It's a new frozen yogurt store here in town and they have all sorts of different flavors. Mango, Lychee, Taro Bly (my favorite), coconut, acai, etc... So good. In honor of our new kitchen, I decided to make us frozen yogurt for a treat. Strawberry that is. I tried making frozen yogurt in my food processor, and I think my blade didn't like it, because it ended up breaking. This tastes much better made in an ice cream ...

We've been fine dining on a lot of tv dinners lately and going out to eat at places like Subway and Little Ceasar's. I'm getting really tired of it too, and have many other recipes that I want to try making ...

Braised Mexican Chicken

chicken creation 012

Earlier this week, I asked my facebook fans to list 4 random ingredients. Why? Because I thought that would be a cool way to come up with some of my own recipes and because I like the show Chopped on Food Network.  One of the 4 lists of ingredients  included chicken, onions, peppers, and tomatoes. That was pretty easy, I thought. So... what I did was brown some bacon in my dutch oven. Took the bacon out, and browned some chicken thighs and breasts. Took those out of the pot. Then, I browned some ...

Chicken Cordon Bleu


I've been randomly going through my blog and updating recipes with Nutrition Info.  Somebody informed me on my facebook page that it was National Nutrion Info month.  It is also National Pancake Day, but today, you're getting Chicken Cordon Bleu. Is the correct way Blue or Bleu? Or does it really matter? Chicken Cordon Bleu is one of the first things Tyler Florence learned how to make when he was in culinary school. I remember him saying that in his show when he made this.  If you're afraid to ...
