Easy Chicken Cordon Bleu

Let’s face it, chicken breast is bland. Even if perfectly baked. Chicken cordon bleu is a classic recipe that improves the taste of chicken breast by filling it with ham and cheese, then dredging it in breadcrumbs and frying in butter.

The classic chicken cordon bleu is excellent, but a bit too involved for a lazy cook like myself. So I decided to simplify things by baking the chicken breasts as I normally do, then topping them with Dijon mustard, ham and cheese, and returning to the hot oven for just a few seconds, until the cheese melts. We loved the result! Easy enough to make on a weeknight, adult-and-kid-friendly, and very tasty. Click for the recipe

Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

Dinner doesn’t get any easier than slow cooker pulled pork. Quickly mix the barbecue sauce, pour over the pork, set and forget.

Breakfast Stuffed Bell Peppers

It’s the perfect low carb brunch – sausage and eggs baked inside bell peppers. Delicious and very pretty! I usually use ground pork and spices, but you can make this even easier by using store-bought, clean-ingredients sausage. Click for the recipe
