How to Make American Flag Heart Decorated Sugar Cookies

There was a time, not all that long ago, when I used to bake a decorate sugar cookies almost every day. That was about 10 years ago when I ran a small home based cookie business called Kudos Kookies. Notice anything familiar about the name? 😉

Now I only bake and decorate sugar cookies when I’m really in the mood, and when there is a special occasion. For me, Memorial Day and the 4th of July are just the types of special occasions which call for patriotic cookies. Especially when they’re these fun American Flag Heart Decorated Sugar Cookies.

Easy Chicken and Rice Pot Pie

This chicken pot pie recipe came out of a need to use up the leftover rice I had in my fridge, so I purchased a store-bought rotisserie chicken and whipped up an easy white sauce.

The result is this delicious and easy chicken recipe that nobody would ever guess came from leftovers. Especially if you take a minute to add those fun little carrot and pea cut-outs to adorn the top pie crust. Adorable!!

Turkey Taco Stuffed Avocados

If you’re a taco Tuesday type of gal, then you may want to switch things up just a wee little bit by serving these Healthy Turkey Taco Stuffed Avocados.

If, by chance, you don’t think these are your style because you’d be missing the crunch from a traditional taco shell, then why not crunch a few chips over the top to garnish? This way you still have the crunch you desire, but you’ll still be cutting back on a few of the carbs as well.

Breaded Baked Italian Chicken Legs

This is my updated riff on the old favorite of Shake ‘n Bake chicken from when I was growing up.

This recipe for Baked Italian Chicken Legs actually has nothing at all to do with the flavors of  Shake ‘n Bake (which was far too salty for my taste). It’s only the preparation method that is the same. The ingredients are put into a bag, the chicken is added, and then it’s time to shake…and bake. What could be easier?
