Smoky-Sweet Bacon Wrapped Chicken Breast

Smoky-Sweet Bacon Wrapped Chicken Breast

The secret to keeping these bacon wrapped chicken breasts so moist, tender, and flavorful (besides the bacon wrapping), is to bathe the chicken in a saltwater and sugar brine for 30 minutes before seasoning and wrapping the breasts in bacon. The difference the brine makes is unmistakable and is well worth the extra 30 minutes of basically hands-off time.

I adore mashed potatoes.

I don’t know of anyone who doesn’t. I’ve made regular mashed potatoes, mashed sweet potatoes, mashed Idaho and sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes with celery root, mashed potatoes with pumpkin, plain mashed cauliflower, and now this recipe for cauliflower sweet potato mashers.

This is, by far, my new favorite!

Healthy Sautéed Creamed Spinach with Strawberries

This dish of Sautéed Creamed Spinach & Strawberries came about one night when I was contemplating a side dish to serve with some fish I was cooking.

Since I had strawberries in the fridge that I needed to use before they spoiled, I tossed some into the sauteed creamed spinach I was preparing. The completed dish tasted amazing, and it was a feast for the eyes as well as the taste buds!

Antioxidant Rich Blood Orange Salad with Blueberries & Feta

I have a confession to make, I’d never even tried a blood orange before making this Blood Orange Salad.

Oh sure I’d seen them in the stores often enough, and on other people’s blogs, but since I’m not that fond of eating citrus fruits on their own, I’ve never added them to my shopping cart. However, now I’m in love with them and I’m never looking back!!
