Breaded Zucchini, Mushrooms & Onions – An Experiment

I can never make things easy for myself without doing something at the same time that makes it harder. When I decided to make my Marinated Slow Cooker Chuck Roast because it was hot and I was tired I should have stopped. But I decided to also make breaded vegetables. And, being me, I thought I should try something different. So here it is; Breaded Zucchini, Mushrooms & Onions – An Experiment.

Marinated Slow Cooker Chuck Roast

It was hot yesterday. The actual temperature was 91 degrees Fahrenheit. That’s 32.7778 Celsius for those of you who measure that way. I didn’t want to grill outside. Standing over a flame held zero appeal. And I didn’t want to turn on the oven either. So I decided to pull out my slow cooker and make Marinated Slow Cooker Chuck Roast.

Herbed Shrimp with Lemon Orzo and Peas

After Jami and John’s wedding I had a really tough time getting out of bed. Even my nails and teeth felt swollen. For a couple of days we survived on what I call fast food; Hamburger Helper and frozen pizza. But we needed a real meal before long so I made something simple but really tasty – Herbed Shrimp with Lemon Orzo and Peas.

Cheddar Lake Biscuits

The delicious Cheddar Bay biscuits served at Red Lobster® restaurants are one of my favorite biscuits of all time. When I found they were being sold in stores I thought it was wonderful. But I like things homemade so I decided to change up the recipe a bit and make them myself. Living in Michigan, surrounded by the Great Lakes made the name an easy choice. I call them Cheddar Lake Biscuits!

Custard Bathed Berries

One of the best things about summer is the fruit. I love eating fruit from my garden, the trees, and the bushes. But when I want fruit served in a decadent fashion I make Custard Bathed Berries. One of Pete’s friends calls it “Sex in Tupperware.” Kids.

Hasselback Mexi-ranch Chicken

Lately I’ve seen a lot of recipes for Hasselback potatoes around the Internet. They intrigued me, not because the ingredients are so unusual but because of the way the potatoes are sliced. I struggle with presentation and those potatoes look really cool. But I didn’t want to do potatoes. I wanted to start with something different. So I came up with Hasselback Mexi-ranch Chicken!

BLT Chicken Cordon Bleu

Recently I made my Simple Woman’s Chicken Cordon Bleu. This seems to have made Mr. Comfortable start thinking and he requested I come up with a BLT version of the dish. I’m not going to tell him but creating BLT Chicken Cordon Bleu was an easy task!
