Pesto Peach Pasta

This pasta may seem a little random to some but these flavors somehow taste amazing together. One of my moms best friends named Jill gave her this pasta recipe. Every recipe I have ever tried of Jill’s is out of this world. This recipe is just that. During the late summer months peaches are ripe everywhere. I order a large box of peaches from Utah that get shipped here and there are gone very very fast. Usually just plain, with cream, or in desserts. That is why every year I throw in this recipe at least once to have a …

During summer time BBQ’s are in full swing! Swimming parties and potlucks are where it is at! I think potato salad is definitely a staple at any BBQ.

Some leftovers sat in the fridge for a few days (The longer it sits the better it tastes) until …

Cheesy Chicken and Spinach Bundles

When I started to make dinner the other night this is not what I had in mind. It started as just panko crusted chicken parmesan with a side spinach salad. I decided to have a little fun with these chicken bundles and threw in some ham to make it a chicken cordon bleu type of dish and luckily I threw in some spinach for my kids to eat and this dish was perfect! I loved it this way but it would be good with some spaghetti sauce on top too!   Cheesy Chicken and Spinach Bundles ingredients  4-6 small chicken breast, pounded …
