It's Hopping just around the corner!

Spring is going to pop and Easter is right around the corner.  Do you bring goodies to your family like I do?  I don't do the cooking, I bring something fabulous for dessert.  Try a different type of dessert,  Italian Ricotta Cheese Pie.   A subtle, yet delicious taste of rum in this dessert makes it a real hit among the family.  My mom used to make it all the time at Easter.   Tomorrow we'll have more to offer.

Quick and Easy Supper.

An easy dinner idea for you.  Pizza Roll and salad.  Make your favorite mixed green salad to serve along with a delicious veggie pizza roll.  This is so easy to make you will love it. 

1 package refrigerated pizza dough (rolled)
3 tablespoons tomato sauce
3 mushrooms chopped
1/4 onion,  chopped
1/4 teaspoon dried pizza seasoning.

Unroll the pizza crust, put the tomato sauce spread over the whole thing.  Add the chopped veggies and the seasoning.  Roll it up and bake it at 375 for 25 minutes.  Slice and serve.

My Attempt at Mexican Food!

Chicken and cheese enchiladas made to taste authentic.  Easy to do using tortillas, canned chicken, shredded cheddar cheese, black beans, corn and  a can of enchilada sauce. 
Spanish rice and shredded lettuce, onions and tomatoes topped with avocado slices accompany the enchiladas.  This dinner served 4 people having 2 enchiladas each.  I was very surprised how really good they tasted.  Cooks in 30 minutes 350.  Delicious.....enjoy.

Easy Poached Salmon

This time of year a lot of meals consist of fish.  Salmon is one of my favorites.  It is very healthy containing "good" fats for our body.  Poaching salmon is the easiest way I know to cook it and it will never fail.
All you do is put the fillet of salmon on aluminum foil, top it with thinly sliced lemon, thinly sliced onion, and any other type of veggie you would like.  I made it tonight using green olives, onions and lemon.  I use two tablespoons of  white wine, salt and pepper and that's it.  Fold the foil up to make air tight packages and put in the oven on a cookie sheet at 375 degrees for about 20-25 minutes.  Be careful when you open the packets, as the steam will rise up and give you the best smell of delicious salmon you have ever smelled.  Serve it with fresh veggies and enjoy.
Easy, delicious and healthy meal.
