Morning Dunkin” Toast

There is nothing easier than this delicious dunkin” toast to use in Milk, Coffee, Tea. I make a spice seasoning of one tablespoon cinnamon, one teaspoon granulated sugar, one teaspoon nutmeg, 1/2 teaspoon clove, mix well. I also love thick sourdough bread (use your favorite bread), butter one side and add spice mix, place under broiler just a few minutes (watch it!).

Dunk away!

Fun and easy!


Chicken Fajitas

These are such a fun and easy meal to put together. I use 2 whole Chicken breasts either baked or grilled, cooled then shredded. 1/2 red bell pepper, 1/2 green pepper, one white onion sliced, one minced clove of garlic, dash of chili powder, dash of salt and black pepper.

Saute the peppers and onions with minced garlic, chili powder, S & P, until softened. Add shredded chicken and stir gently cook 6 minutes. You can warm the flour tortillas in the microwave, if desired.

Fill the flour tortillas full and roll closed. A side of rice and beans goes well with these fajitas.

Stove-Top Mac ‘n Cheese


Using three cheeses (your choice), 1 cup milk, 1/2 cream, black pepper, large elbow noodles. This Mac ‘n Cheese is so creamy and such a complete comfort food. My gang makes a meal of it with a side salad.

Boil elbow noodles (as per box instructions) drain, add butter and salt and toss, in a saucepan on low heat add milk, cream and slowly add you favorite cheeses until creamy and melted. Add cooked large elbow noodles, toss and serve, garnish with fresh cracked black pepper.

Oh my so yummy!

Ham & Pineapple Cheese Pizza


Pizza is always a great comfort food. We love the varieties to make at home. Using refrigerated pizza dough, I had Ham leftover from our Christmas Dinner, I used provolone and mozzarella cheeses, pineapple small tidbit chunks, baked for 14 minutes and it was so good.

I made a green mixed garden salad on the side.

Perfect for lunch or a light supper.
