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!
The texture of this baked steel cut oatmeal is truly incredible. I love the heartiness that each spoonful transports to my waiting taste buds and hungry tummy knowing that both will be happy, and satisfied!
Plus, as a bonus, there will be no more of that pesky growling and grumbling from my stomach until lunchtime.
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!
I also double dog dare you to take the Gluten Free Tropical Banana Bread challenge. After your first bite, if you’re not convinced that this is the best banana bread you’ve ever eaten, you can bring it to my house and I’ll take it off your hands and eat it for you! LOL
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.
