Hi Todd!
Here's an awesome recipe I found.  I added my tweaks too:
Chicken Francese for 2 people:


  2 skinless, boneless, chicken breasts, pounded thin (pound thin, very important)

  salt and lots of freshly ground black pepper to taste

  2 beaten eggs

  1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil

  1/2 large lemon, with rind, cut in thin rounds

  1/4 cup dry white wine, such as Pinot Grigio (any Pinot will do, get what you like to drink to go with dinner!)

  1/2 cup chicken broth

  1/2 large lemon, juiced

  2 tablespoons butter


Heat oil in pan. Meanwhile, dredge pounded chicken breasts in flour and then eggs. Add chicken to pan. Cook for about 3 minutes over medium-high heat and turn and cook 3 minutes on other side. Remove chicken and drain pan. Then to same pan, add butter over medium heat, return chicken to pan. Add white wine.

Then broth and then lemon juice. Add a nice pinch of flour to thicken the sauce and stir around 2 minutes till sauce is thick and no lumps. Season with salt, pepper and lemon rounds.  Serve with whatever side you'd like.  The side I like to use is this The sauce from the chicken mixes nice with it and you should have a good amount of sauce left from the recipe you can pour over the chicken and the pasta.  YUMMY!

Hope you like it!  I owe you Wednesday pets.  I have 2 beautiful siberian huskies, but when I try taking a picture of them they attack me with kisses...its like they KNOW I'm takin a picture...

They new site is great by the way, I'm a long time fan...and laid off since August, part of the wall street meltdown :-(  Thank god for unemployment!

Good vibes to ya!

Can't get rid of recipes! so here we go!

Drunken Cheesy Bread
This is a huge hit every time I make it and usually is just made with the stuff you've let sit around too long to be much good for anything else!

One old baguette rock hard
Some white wine, doesn't have to be good
Something meaty, deli ham, bacon, pancetta
Swiss cheese

Take the baguette and cut it into cubes (try not to hurt yourself)
cut up your ham or bacon or pancetta (if you're using bacon or pancetta cook it first please) and toss  it in over the cubed bread.
Grate yourself a bunch of swiss cheese and throw it on top of the other stuff.
Douse it in White Wine

Stick the whole shebang in the oven at 450 and cook it until the cheese is brown and bubbly and there's a fantastic smell coming from your oven. Lift it out into plates, warn your friends not to burn their tongues and be prepared to receive looks of adoration.




Hi Todd,
I made this one early Saturday morning (It was storming so bad on Friday, I was scared to turn the blender on) .  I made everything else yesterday.
Chocolate and yellow cake made with Splenda and sugar.  Sugar-Free cinnamon cream cheese filling and sugar free white chocolate cream icing. 
I'm tweaking a recipe for a wedding cake.
Mini yellow cupcakes with chocolate fudge icing and chocolate lips. 
These are made with lemon zest and sour cream.  I think they needed more lemon zest.  Some of them didn't taste very lemony.
I was just kind of messing around with amounts of sour cream and lemon.

Side note.  Someone gave me a dishwasher yesterday.  Now all I need is a dryer and I can stop going to the laundrymat.  A man asked me for some of my soap yesterday because the machine didn't have the kind he wanted.  I told him no and he said that if I don't give him any, I wasn't going to receive a blessing that day.  I think I'll risk it.  I'm sure God has other things to worry about besides laundry day.
Here is a picture of my mom with the dishwasher.  Later when we got it to my house,  we were trying to unload it and it crashed into the burgalar bar door and tore a hole in the screen.
