Bacon Chicken and Arugula Sandwich

Smashed Avocado Bacon Breakfast Sandwiches


Well it's all over now, Valentine's day and my birthday. I'm glad! I'm officially one year older, and I'm not going to tell you how old I am. There was a time when I didn't use to care.

Mexican BLT with Guacamole

Not that there's anything wrong with that, I just wanted you to know that I know. Have I confused you yet?

Leftover Turkey with Pistachio Pesto and Arugula Sandwich


Thank God it's the weekend. I actually had to work yesterday. All my fault, really. I left no vacation time at all for the Christmas holidays.

Buffalo Chicken Quesadillas


Quesadillas are one of the foods I usually order when I go to a restaurant. I just love them. Any which way you make them, I just love a good quesadilla.
