Sweet & Savory Creamy Chicken Salad with Dried Apricots & Macadamia Nuts

I find that a mix of dark and white meat chicken makes the best-tasting chicken salad. Store-bought rotisserie chicken is what I prefer when making a homemade chicken salad recipe.
When using onions in a non-cooked salad, I enjoy a red onion and think it is the sweetest. You can adjust the amount of red onion in the recipe depending on your taste. Chopped shallots may be used in place of the red onion for a slightly milder onion flavor.

German Bee Sting Cake (Bienenstitch) Kudos Kitchen Style #SummerDessertWeek

Before I started baking, I was a little intimidated to tackle this traditional German Bee Sting Cake. Our BFF’s have been to Germany many times over the years, and they’ve spoken so highly of this cake I was afraid I wouldn’t be able to do it justice. Since I was gifting this cake to them for the many thoughtful acts they’ve done for us in the past, I especially wanted this cake to be amazing!

Buttery Gluten Free Macadamia Nut Chicken Thighs Recipe

I’ve been a macadamia nut fiend lately. I can’t seem to get enough of them, but that doesn’t bode too well for my pocketbook. Buttery rich macadamia nuts may be one of the most expensive nuts in the marketplace. That said, in my mind, they’re also the most flavorful! Sorry, pocketbook! 😉

While this dish of Buttery Gluten Free Macadamia Nut Chicken Thighs may not be something you make and serve on a weekly basis, but for a special occasion, or as a dinnertime treat from time to time I hope you’ll add this dish to your recipe repertoire. I trust you’ll love it just as much as we do!

No Bake Peanut Butter & Chocolate Granola Jumbles also are perfect for gift giving. Think Mother’s Day and Father’s Day in particular.

And don’t forget to get the kids busy in the kitchen with you when you’re making these. Since these Peanut Butter & Chocolate Granola Jumbles are basically a “dump” recipe, the kiddos will have a whole lot of fun dumping and mixing all the ingredients!

Best Ever Double Chocolate Graham Cracker Toffee

Sometimes the best recipes (just like inventions) come out of necessity. So it is with this recipe for Double Chocolate Graham Cracker Toffee. Since I’d had extra chocolate graham crackers left over from another recipe I’d completed, I wanted to use them up quickly before they got lost in the back of the pantry, which happens in my Kudos Kitchen more times than I care to admit.

Healthy Nutritious Chicken with Strawberry Satay Sauce #SundaySupper

Since a traditional satay sauce is peanut butter based, I thought I’d do a play on a PB & J by adding in season, plump and juicy Florida strawberries to the satay sauce. The result is a sweet and savory dipping sauce which pairs wonderfully well with grilled chicken. To say the kids will love this dish of Chicken with Strawberry Satay Sauce is an understatement! After all, who wouldn’t love a dipping sauce that tastes like a peanut butter and strawberry jelly sandwich?

Fresh Healthy Broccoli Salad from Valerie’s Home Cooking Cookbook

The majority of the recipes you’ll find here on Kudos Kitchen are my own original creations. However, from time to time because of my blog I’m approached by publishing houses about doing cookbook reviews. This post (and the recipe for Healthy Broccoli Salad) is one such review. All the opinions I share are 100% my own.

Buttery Sweet Pistachio Cranberry Snowball Cookies

I adapted this recipe from one I shared back in 2010 called pecan snowball cookies. I was going to do a recipe re-do where I updated the photos in the original post. However, before I knew it, my brain was adding the festive red and green elements of pistachios and dried cranberries, and omitting the pecans altogether. The result is utterly delicious. I do hope you’ll make these Buttery Sweet Pistachio Cranberry Snowball Cookies. I know you’ll love them just as much as we do!
