Poached Chicken & Grape Salad

Poached Chicken & Grape Salad
Today my Hubby and I enjoyed a delicious poached chicken and grape dish. I was in the mood for a kind of Waldorf salad, but didn’t want to go to the store so I used what I had in the kitchen. Trying to keep it light I used less sour cream and mayonnaise and more Greek yogurt. I love getting little bites of cool, crunchy and sweet all in one. We ate them in little Boston Bibb cups but I think a grainy bread would be great too. We will definitely be having this for lunch tomorrow too!  Continue reading

Baked Shrimp With A Lemon & Tarragon Mayonnaise

Baked Shrimp With A Lemon & Tarragon Mayonnaise 1
I like to entertain, but I do try to keep things simple. Baking the shrimp instead of boiling them takes way less time and ends up perfect every time.  Then, instead of the same old cocktail sauce (although I served that too), I made a mayonnaise-based sauce for dipping. My guests went crazy over it and the cocktail sauce was left untouched! The best part was that this time I got to share it first-hand with my Fabulous Fare Sister…Linda…she was there too! If you’re serving shrimp – try this method…and the sauce is better if made a day ahead, which is always nice…  Continue reading

It was time to clean the refrigerator… again! Easter is fast approaching and as you know you have to make room for more food. While I was working on the freezer I pulled out a bag of green peppers I had poached and frozen at the end of our garden season last summer. Time to use the peppers. Then in the refrigerator I had a big container of rice from the Chinese takeout I had gotten for my son the night before… that’s right, My Hubby and I had a date night so my son got take out. He never eats the rice so I just thought…peppers… rice… stuffed pepper soup! I used ground turkey because that’s what I had on hand. It turned out so good and my Hubby went wild for it!
