Gorgonzola and Medjool date Scones


 Something new to have with wine or a'll thank me!

 These scones are packed with dates and just the right amount of gorgonzola cheese that melds into the flaky, buttery layers.

I made these to give as a gift to a few friends. They have high reviews!

Cheesy Sun dried Tomato Stuffed Chicken Breast


Tender chicken stuffed with cream cheese, mozzarella, sundried tomatoes, and wilted spinach. This was love at first bite! The filling becomes super creamy and cheesy in the oven and it keeps the chicken breast really juicy. This is yummy and very easy to make!

Chicken Cutlets with Sun-Dried Tomato Cream Sauce

Packed with flavor this healthy chicken dish will make a big splash in presentation for guests or for family. I used about 1/2 a jar of sundried tomatoes and refrigerated the remainder for another dinner.

Chicken Cutlets with Sun-Dried Tomato Cream Sauce

1 lb chicken cutlets, or slice up a breast and pound a bit 

1/2 tsp Kosher salt

1/2 tsp. freshly cracked pepper

1/2 cup oil packed Sun dried tomatoes, sliced into slivers

1/2 cup chopped shallots

1/2 cup baby spinach

1/2 cup dry white wine, I used Pic Pol

1/2 cup cream


Add 1 tablespoon of the oil from the Sun dried tomatoes to the saute pan. Saute the cutlets until light brown on both sides and done in the middle. Remove to a platter and season both sides.

Add the shallots and sun dried tomatoes to the pan and cook for about one minute. Add the white wine and cook scraping up brown bits and reducing the wine for about 2 minutes. Add the spinach and stir for one minute. Add the cream and reduce the heat to medium, add 1/4 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp fresh cracked pepper, simmer for about 2 minutes. Place the chicken in the sauce, spooning the sauce over the chicken.

Garnish with additional Spinach leaves.

Serve with basmati rice. Enjoy!
