Chicken Piccata Pasta Toss

Boneless skinless chicken breast meals can get boring, but they're easy so I am always looking for new ways to use them. I, personally, love the flavors of lemon, white wine and chicken, so any time I see a recipe incorporating those flavors, especially if it's quick and easy for a weeknight meal, I'll plan on trying it.  Sadly, I have to space these recipes out, as Rob isn't a huge fan of lemon :(

I admit that I haven't been on the Food Network website in a LONG time, but I was reunited recently while looking up brunch recipes (more to come later!), and I saw a collection of quick spring family meals.  One of the first recipes was this pasta toss and it was perfect.  Not too much lemon, so Rob won't be able to complain too much.  And quick and easy, which is always a bonus!

I did omit the capers, as I really dislike them, but adding them really will make this more like a chicken piccata dish.

Ingredients:

2 Tablespoons Extra Virgin Oli…

Scalloped Potatoes and Ham

Scalloped potatoes really are an ultimate comfort food that I don't find myself making all too often. I love them and they're always a hit when I make them. Maybe it's the knowledge that they're loaded with lots of calories and fat from the cream and cheese, or maybe it's because I always forget that I have a Mandolin slicer, but regardless I don't make them nearly enough.

Rob and I recently DIY renovated our kitchen, and while the kiddo was at the grandparents and Rob was in the garage and I got to listen to Food Network in the background, and overheard Pioneer Woman talking about this recipe. I looked over the wall between the kitchen and living room to see what this was all about and immediately knew I needed to make this to add a little variety to our menu, and because I had a few potatoes I needed to cook relatively soon!

While this would be a fantastic way to use leftover Easter ham, I did not have leftover ham.I highly recommend if you celebrate this …
