I’ve got something very special for you. If you are looking for an entire dinner that will dazzle your dinner guests, look no further.
To begin, a delicious and healthy salad your guests will love. Next, one of the best chicken dishes I’ve ever prepared.
Better yet, you place the chicken on top of a tasty potato dish. Both are then covered with a wonderful white wine sauce.
Your guests will love this dinner.

I realize I haven’t posted in a long time, but there’s been a lot going on in my life. The good news is we have two new beautiful grandsons. Everyone’s doing fine and I couldn’t be happier or love them any more.
O. K., with that said, John and I are now empty nesters for the first time in almost 40 years. It has brought about some grocery shopping and cooking changes for me, so I’ve decided to focus on two-person meals.

If you haven’t read about the recently discovered health benefits of tomatoes, see John’s blog on www.TheBestofOurLives.com . It turns out, in order to get all the antioxidants from the tomatoes, you must first cook them. Here is a simple recipe for a great fresh Marinara Sauce. Simply click here for the recipe.
Going back in time, both my husband John and I began to eat fewer meat dishes. Given that both set of parents had mid-western roots, this was quite a departure from the meals we were used to eating. We had not sworn off red meat, it just turns out we both like chicken and fish more than we do beef.
In this blog I’m sharing two of my current favorite fish recipes. The first is a dish I’ve been making for a few years. It’s “Barbecue Shrimp” that is extra spicy and a real taste treat. I love food that wakes up the senses.
The second dish, “Spicy Sole,” is one I just made recently and was a big hit with everyone. As the name implies, it is spicy and delicious. I think you and your family and guests will love it.

I’ve got three great recipes for you this week. The first one I call “Meatloaf With a Kick.” Of all my recipes, this is the one people ask for the most. I’ve even received emails from people I didn’t know who said they heard about my meatloaf and wanted the recipe. One time I took this meatloaf to a potluck dinner and a woman I didn’t know launched a search for the person who brought the meatloaf. Months later I got an email which began, “I was at a potluck dinner several months ago and had the best meatloaf I’ve ever tasted.” I was very flattered and sent her the recipe. It’s spicy but delicious.
The second recipe goes great with meatloaf, it’s my “Maple-Baked Beans.” The fact is, these beans will be a big hit with your family or guests no matter what else you serve.
Finally, I’ve shared my recipe for the best “Broccoli Cheese Soup” you will ever taste. My aunt Mary Jane gave me this recipe years ago and I’ve never tasted any better. Its easy to make and I guarantee you will love it. Even President George Bush, who didn’t like broccoli, would like this soup.
