 Every week when I buy groceries, one item that always ends up in my cart is boneless skinless chicken breasts. While they're the perfect starting point and you can pretty much cook them a million ways, finding new and delicious ways to present the same ol', same ol',...

Yesterday, I was scrolling down through my Facebook feed and I came across this quick little video demonstrating chicken breasts stuffed with spinach and ricotta, seasoned with salt, pepper and paprika, sprinkled with chicken and baked. It looked amazing! I didn't have...

 This past Saturday, we moved into our new home. No matter how organized you are, moving day is always a stressful day. Packing up everything from one house, transporting it to another, and then trying to unpack and place things in the most appropriate place in your ne...
