This site was fun while it lasted, but I'm too busy chasing around my four little ones to keep it up any longer (follow our daily adventures here) Thanks for visiting!

We had a book club luncheon at my house recently, and Shelley made the yummiest sandwiches. My favorite were these...
Spread pesto on one side of bread, and toast on a griddle (pesto side down) until lightly toasted. Cut off crusts. To make sandwiches, lightly apply mayo to the inside of the bread and add thinly sliced tomatoes and avocado.
I have been craving these ever since!

For the crepes:
1 c flour
2 Tb sugar
1 Tb veg. oil
In a bowl combine milk, flour eggs, oil, and sugar. Beat until well mixed. Heat a lightly greased skillet over medium heat. Remove from heat. Pour in approx. ¼ C of batter; lift and tilt skillet to spread batter. Return to heat and cook until it starts to bubble then flip it over and cook until lightly browned.

Olive Garden's Fettucini Alfredo
I'm not sure if this is really an Olive Garden original (I got the recipe from my friend Marisa), but whatever it is, it is YUM! I've tried so many different Alfredo recipes and I must say this is my favorite. Simple, bursting with flavor and not shy on the calories, a definite must for alfredo :)
1/2 C real butter
1 tsp fresh garlic
1 dash cayenne pepper
1 pint heavy whipping cream
2/3 cup fresh grated parmesan or romano cheese
salt and pepper to taste
1 lbs pasta
chopped fresh parsley for garnish (opt)
In a saucepan over medium-low heat, melt butter--add cream, garlic, and salt and peppers. Simmer for 20-30 minutes, stirring constantly until thickened. Remove sauce from heat and stir in cheese. Serve over hot pasta and seasoned grilled chicken.

Croissant Chicken Salad Sandwiches
I like it simple. In my opinion grapes, chicken and celery were never meant to share a recipe. I never liked chicken salad sandwiches until I found this recipe and now I can't get enough (and neither can my kids who share my same opinion about grapes mixed into the dinner dish)
3 chicken breasts,
1 10 ounce can artichoke hearts – drained 2 tsp. grated yellow onion or 1/4tsp onion powder
1 Tbl. lemon juice
1 tsp. dill weed (opt.)
1/4 c. mayo (light is fine)
1/4 c. sour cream
cook chicken in crockpot (with butter or broth) then use food chopper to finely shred. Add artichoke to chopper then combine all ingredients and serve on croissants.
