Strawberry - Cream Cheese Muffins

Fresh summer strawberries mixed into a muffin batter perfect for breakfast, snack, dessert or packed in school lunches. 🍓 
One of the best things about summer is the abundance of fresh berries. Blueberries, blackberries, raspberries and strawberries, I love them all! There's nothing better than fresh, homegrown or farmers market strawberries, especially for snacking and baking.  

Blueberry Muffins are my family's favorite muffin, but on a whim, I decided to use some leftover strawberries that I had on hand instead of blueberries and the results were fabulous. Besides strawberries I also added some cream cheese and just like that, my blueberry muffins transformed into the tastiest Strawberry- Cream Cheese Muffins!

Cauliflower Rice Greek Salad + A Birds Eye Giveaway!

A pasta style Greek salad bursting with flavor featuring Birds Eye® Veggie Made Riced Cauliflower. 

Today I have a deliciously easy salad recipe to share with you and a little giveaway at the end of this post. I've been wanting to jump on the riced cauliflower train for quite some time, especially since it's a great low-carb rice substitute, but the idea of making my own riced cauliflower seems like a lot of work. 

When I saw that Birds Eye® Veggie Made™  started making frozen riced cauliflower, I knew it was time to try it, so I picked up a few bags at my local grocery store. I had a couple summer salad recipes that I've been wanting to make that called for rice or pasta, but I thought the riced cauliflower would be a healthier option.

Quick Lemon Chicken - Rachael Ray's Recipe

Lightly battered crispy chicken pieces, coated with a sweet and tangy lemon sauce. 
Happy Monday everyone! Today I have a delicious chicken recipe to share with you. Back in June I shared a recipe video on my Facebook page for Rachael Ray's Quick Lemon Chicken made with lemon curd. I was pretty excited to make this recipe, because I had yet to find a good Lemon Chicken recipe that wasn't too tart. 

I read through all the comments and reviews of the recipe and I was so glad I did, because several readers, were stating the lemon sauce was way too sweet. So as I was preparing this recipe I made a few changes and I think I came up with the perfect combination of sweet and tart.
