Now on to something I think you will really find yummy! This nice chef found me on Twitter and I'm glad he did! I can't say enough about his recipes! I got his permission to post his recipe to share with all of you. You can also sign up to receive his daily email at this site: www.cheftraveler.com His recipes are PACKED with flavor and are so good for you! His emails also include healthy tidbits of information. It's a great bonus to your day! Here's one of my most favorite recipes of his so far:
Chicken PiccataThis Italian classic is sure to be a hit with the family; you might want to omit the capers and cut back on the lemon juice if you are feeding kids. You can buy the cutlets ready to go out of the package to save time, or pound them out yourself. I give instructions below to pound them out if needed. Butter or cream is usually used to finish off this dish to add richness. This version is light and clean.
Cook time: 25 minutes
1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
4ea. Chicken Breast Cutlets
4ea. sliced Green Onion
2 teaspoons minced Garlic
1 cup Chicken Broth
3 tablespoon Lemon Juice
2 tablespoon Capers
2 tablespoon Parsley, chopped
Heat skillet over medium heat, meanwhile pound the chicken in to thin cutlets between plastic wrap. Add oil and to the skillet, and cook for a few minutes a side, until cooked through, set aside on plate. Add the green onion, and garlic, to the skillet and cook for a few minutes until the onion starts to soften. Add chicken broth and lemon, and bring heat to high and cook for a few more minutes until reduced by 1/2, scraping any bits on the skillet. Add capers, parsley and chicken, and mix to combine.

Seriously, you will NOT be disappointed in this recipe, or anything of his! I serve this one with brown rice and roasted asparagus. My family, which are very picky eaters, have really been enjoying things I've been receiving from him.
And one more nice thing of the day. I found an online quilt shop thru Etsy. This gal is one of the nicest people I've come across. Between Kym and Chef Jeff, it just doesn't get any better than this! If you're looking for amazing customer service, high quality fabric very reasonably priced and extremely reasonable shipping costs, look no further! Just go to: http://www.etsy.com/shop/FabricFascination Trust me, you won't be disappointed!
I'll be posting more about my quilt retreat too, after the play is over. It was such a great time, I just have to blog more about it! I hope this finds you all happy and healthy! Take care!
