I am trying some new healthier not ridiculously horrible for you meals. This one I came up with because I absolutely LOVE spicy food and blackened anything. And I also love gyros especially for their tzatziki sauce. Usually they have cucumber but i didn’t have any on hand. If you want to shred up half a cucumber and add it to the sauce it will give it more of the greek cucumber sauce taste…..


2 Chicken Thighs, skinned, boneless

Blackening Seasoning (I use cajun seasoning i bought at Marshalls plus some garlic powder, black pepper, salt, paprika)

1 Tbsp Olive Oil



1/4 cup of Sour Cream

2 cloves Garlic pressed

1 Tbsp Cilantro chopped

1 tbsp Lime juice

1 tbsp lemon juice


Pico De Gallo:

Tomato chopped

Red onion Chopped

Jalapeno Chopped (to taste, more seeds for hotness)

Lime Juice to taste

Cilantro to taste


Coat Chicken in Blackening seasoning and saute 2 min on each side in olive oil skillet on medium heat

Place on wire rack in oven at 350 for 20 min

Remove and top with dollop of Tzatziki sauce and Pico De Gallo.


I served with some sweet potato fries for a deliciously easy weeknight meal!


So i experimented tonight and came up with an interesting yet ridiculously unhealthy creation:

3/4 of 16 oz box of penne pasta
1 lb Boneless Chicken Breast cubed
2 cups heavy whipping cream
1 cube Chicken Bouillon
1 cup shredded Gouda Cheese
1/4 cup Grated Fresh Parmesan or Romano
8oz sliced baby bella crimini mushrooms
1/2 white onion chopped

1.) Boil water and cook pasta (Drain when done).
2.) While water is boiling cook chicken in olive oil on medium heat (I seasoned with salt, pepper, adobo and rosemary/garlic spice blend)
3.) After turning chicken add mushroom and onion and continue to cook until meat is cooked through, drain and put in bowl on side.
4.) Take same pan (without cleaning to keep flavors from chicken/spices), add 2 cups Whipping Cream and bring to a simmer (stirring often).
5.) Add Chicken Bouillon and Cheeses and whisk until Cheese melts and is blended smooth and thick enough to your liking.
6.) Add Chicken/Mushroom mixure to sauce and serve over pasta.

This is the first time I have made this and am unsure if I would make any changes. I thought it tasted too much like “cream” however boyfriend said he thought it was very cheesy so who knows. Enjoy!

Coupon Queen

So, I’ve realized I’m a horrible blogger.  I only seem to post every week or two and I really wish I could do more.  I’m going to work on that I swear….

So I’ve gotten into a new coupon craze and started saying to myself “why haven’t i done this sooner?”….I went to Shoprite last week and spent 8.23 on 2 pkg of Pretzel crisps, 2 jars of classico, 4 pkg of solo cups/plates, 2 pkg Ballpark hot dogs, 2 Helluva good dips and 2 pkg hot dog rolls and hamburg rolls.  Aaaand i even got a $4.00 off your next order coupon upon checkout. Most stores automatically double coupons under $1 so if you catch things on sale then you can pretty much get alot of items almost free…..After $.75 ballpark coupon doubled they were $.19 ea, after $.75 solo coupon doubled they were $.50 ea and if you buy 4 you get $4.00 coupon for next order so its like getting money back. The Helluva good also was a $.50 coupon that doubled so each were only $.49.
This week I was able to grab some more pretzel crisps (BOGO free coupon + on sale), Milk Bone Healthy Treats ($1.00 off coupon + on sale), 3 pints of Ben & Jerrys (i know not the healthiest but the tastiest…. for $7.50 and they give you a $1.50 off next order when you buy 3), Chinet plates ($1.00 off coupon + on sale for $1.34 so cost $0.34), 4 more pkg of solo plates with the same deal as last week, 3pk of romaine lettuce, garlic, 8pk Sparkle paper towels, 12pk Angelsoft Bath tissue ($.1.00 coupon + $2.39 on sale so cost 1.39), 3 huge cans of Redpack tomatoes ($1.00 coupon on 3 + 3/$2 on sale so cost $1.00 for 3cans), Olivias greens ($1.00 coupon + on sale for $3.29)…
My total ended up being $22 for all of these items plus i recieved a $4.00 off next order and a $1.50 off next order from the Ben & Jerrys and the Solo purchases.

I’ve realized if you just google for coupons on the things your buying and store match-ups for sales that week you can really save as much as those crazy ladies on the crazy coupon show.  I think I’m going to start posting alot of the good coupons on my blog since I’m sure theres some of you out there that could use them. I found this awesome blog about coupons and you can narrow by which store you want and they show you what coupons to print and use for the best deals….alot of times your items turn out free or you get money back!

Wine of the week…

Martin Codax Albarino

I know, I know the last wine of the week was also an Albarino from Spain but I just had a bottle last night and it reminded me how much I adore it.  It is great with fish and seafood but can hold up to your chicken and pasta dishes as well as sushi or spicy cuisine. 

It retails for around $12 – $16 per bottle depending on location and store. 

Just yesterday they reinstated our Employee Discount Purchasing program (60% of retail!!) at work so I will be able to try most anything I want (in our portfolio that is)!  Tonight I will probably be going with the Mollydooker Maitre’D (Cabernet Sauvignon) to go with our delish steaks on the grill.



After this crazy hectic week that I’ve had just getting back from vacation and the piles of work I’ve tried to catch up on, I have decided to go camping this weekend.  What I was very disappointed to discover was that my poor little pooch can’t come with me 😦

There are only 2 parks in the state of CT that allow pets on the campgrounds and only one of those is open for the 2011 season right now.  We had planned on going to Kent so we will just have to go without her.  I just can’t believe that the state of CT doesn’t make most of their campgrounds pet-friendly.

Have you ever been camping?  What are your favorite areas to camp?
