Chicken with Sautéed Zucchini Peppers and Mushrooms

This week Sunday Supper is gathering our favorite time saving Back to School Dinners. Hectic schedules don’t mean meals need to suffer. You can cook healthy meals in a short amount of time.
Here’s a few tips:

  • Make double servings of dishes like lasagna and freeze extra for an easy meal.
  • Stock up on pantry staples like chicken stock, canned tomatoes, rice, canned beans and pasta. Add canned tuna or pre-cooked beef or chicken for extra protein.
  • Make extra sauces and can or freeze them to have on hand.
  • Make a beef roast or whole chicken and use leftovers for soup or casseroles.
  • Keep frozen pizza dough or pizza shells on hand. Add sauce and toppings. No need to wait for delivery or pick up.
  • Garden bounty like zucchini and peppers can last a week or two refrigerated. Fresh, reasonably priced zucchini extends well into fall. Barring an early frost, you can get a few at the farmer’s market to tide you over.

Indulge in Italian Chocolate and Strawberry Spreads #review #ad

Blueberry Nocciolata Puff Pastry

I recently received a jar of Nocciolata, chocolate hazelnut spread and Fiordirutta, Strawberries and Wild Strawberries fruit spread by Rigoni di Asiago to review. I received no further compensation for my review, recipe or post. Opinions are my own.

Nothing beats fresh fruit. For cookies I sometimes like the convenience of a good preserve. For these cookies I used Rigoni di Asiago Fiordirutta a jam made with fresh and wild strawberries. A bit tart. A bit sweet. A good offset for a sweet brown sugar based blondie.

From the website.

Fiordifrutta is produced using only top quality organic fruit, selected from the best areas of origin, picked only when perfectly ripened, sweetened with apple juice and with the addition of natural fruit pectin. It is processed at room temperature to preserve at bets the taste and fragrance of freshly-picked fruit. It contains no added sugar, artificial aromas and colors. Fiordifrutta comes in 26 different flavors!

Blueberry Nocciolata Pastry Puffs

Blueberry Nocciolata Puff Pastry

Nocciolata chocolate hazelnut spread is USDA certified organic, gluten free product.

From the website:

“It’s actually quite simple. Quality ingredients produce superior taste. Only certified organic ingredients go into each jar of creamy, dreamy Nocciolata. That means no chemicals, no artificial flavors, no GMOs and absolutely zero palm oil. Nocciolata is still made following the Rigoni’s exclusive family recipe. It is a slow process that uses only carefully selected ingredients like dark chocolate from the Antillean Islands, Italian hazelnuts (16%), brown sugar, skim milk and Bourbon vanilla extract.”

You can use it as a spread for toast, muffins or even pancakes.
Nocciolata pairs well with fruit. It’s chocolate right? :)

I feel both these spreads would work wonderfully in desserts like jelly rolls and filled doughnuts. Imagine biting into one! Yum!

20 Tantalizing Iced Teas to Tame Summer Heat

20 Tantalizing Iced Teas to Tame Summer Heat

20 tea

tea roundup1Drinking tea goes back thousands of years and is a mainstay in so many cultures. At one time, tea trade ruled the world as a basis for the economy. Business was discussed over tea. Social affairs and tea time became a fashion staple.

Brewed tea leaves, green tea, sun tea, white tea, all terms people use to describe these tasty leaves.

Iced tea goes hand in hand with summer by satisfying summer thirst. I don’t find soda makes the mark. Water is best but sometimes I need a bit of pizzazz.
Refreshing iced tea comes in all kinds of flavors. Some are fruity. Some are sweet. Some are spicy and others spiked. This round up truly has something for everyone!
Thanks again to all the great bloggers that contributed to quenching our thirst!
