Snickerdoodles (for two)

  • In a small bowl, whisk together the room temperature butter and 3 Tbsp granulated sugar. Add the egg yolk and vanilla extract, then whisk again until smooth.
  • Add the flour, salt, and baking powder to the bowl. Stir the ingredients until everything is evenly mixed. Place the cookie dough in the refrigerator for about 15 minutes to chill the dough and make it a little more stiff. Begin to preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • While the dough is chilling, stir together the sugar and cinnamon for the cookie topping in a small bowl. Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper (or foil, but be aware that foil will make the cookies brown more on the bottom).
  • Remove the dough from the refrigerator and divide it into two pieces. Roll each piece of dough into a large ball. Roll each ball in the cinnamon-sugar topping until heavily coated. Place the unbaked cookies at least six inches apart on the baking sheet.
  • Bake the cookies for 16-18 minutes, or until browned around the edges and slightly golden in the middle. Allow the cookies to cool on a wire rack before eating (they will be soft just after baking, but will firm up upon cooling).

The Best Fruit Salad Recipe

 

Ingredients for the Best Fruit Salad Recipe:

  • 1 fresh ripe pineapple
  • 1 fresh ripe cantaloupe
  • 4 fresh ripe mangoes
  • 2 pounds of fresh strawberries
  • 4 cups of seedless green grapes
  • 1 1/2 cups of fresh blueberries
  • 3 to 5 cups powdered sugar

Directions:

Cut the pineapple and the cantaloupe into bite-sized pieces and put them in a large bowl. Peel the mangoes with a potato peeler. Cut the fruit from the mango seeds and cut it into bite-sized pieces, adding it to the bowl. Wash the strawberries, grapes, and blueberries. Cut the strawberries into bite-sized pieces, and add all to the bowl. The amount of powdered sugar you need depends on how much fruit you have, how ripe your fruit is, and personal preference. Start off by adding about 3 cups of powdered sugar to the fruit bowl and stir to combine until the powdered sugar mixes with the juices from the fruits and no longer looks white. Do a taste test and add more powdered sugar if desired.

 

Spinach Stuffed Chicken with Blistered Tomatoes

Spinach Stuffed Chicken with Blistered Tomatoes

Ingredients for Spinach Stuffed Chicken with Blistered Tomatoes

  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 Tbsp light Boursin cheese
  • 3 Tbsp thawed and drained frozen spinach
  • 1 Tbsp dried minced onion
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/4 pint cherry or grape tomatoes, halved
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil, divided
  • 1 Tbsp balsamic vinegar

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Rinse and pat dry your chicken breasts. Following the package directions, thaw the frozen spinach in the microwave and strain to remove as much liquid as you can. In a small bowl add the light Boursin cheese, spinach, minced onion, nutmeg and salt, and pepper. Mix until blended to make your stuffing.
  2. Using a serrated knife, cut a slit in the chicken breasts creating a pocket. Be careful not to cut all the way through to the other side of the breast. Salt and pepper both sides of the chicken. Stuff each breast with 1-2 Tbsp of spinach and cheese mixture.
  3. Place the chicken in a greased baking dish; I used PAM cooking spray. Brush each chicken breast with olive oil, sprinkle a bit more salt and pepper, and then drizzle with balsamic vinegar.
  4. Halve your tomatoes and put them in a small bowl. Drizzle with a little olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Put some foil on a baking sheet and place the tomatoes in a single layer.
  5. Put both the chicken and tomatoes in the oven for about 20 minutes or until the chicken is no longer pink in the thickest part. If the tomatoes aren’t blistered enough you could broil for a couple of minutes. Just cover your chicken with foil to keep it warm.
  6. Top the chicken with the oven-roasted tomatoes and serve immediately! We actually had this as our whole meal because it’s pretty filling. If you serve with sides, I would recommend something on the lighter side. If you don’t have any Boursin light, you could use cream cheese, Alouette, or goat cheese. Any creamy soft cheese should work! Use your imagination.
