I have really been on a kick lately to try new recipes and I found this blog called Picky Palate via Kristen's blog. Speaking of Kristen, if you have a strong stomach check out her nursing school experiences at her other blog, Kristen's Daily Dose. She is a strong person, that's all I'll say about it here. Okay, so I was first "introduced" to Jenny Flake on a Food Network Challenge in the fall and then Kristen had her blog listed, lo and behold it was the lady with the "uncooked chicken". (Man, I felt so bad for her!) Since then, I have made several of her recipes. She and I seem to have very similar tastes in food. Pretty much 99% of the stuff she blogs about I want to make. So, 2 nights ago for dinner I made the "Crispy Southwest Chicken Wontons". Typical me, I cannot make a recipe without changing something. I added a can of drained black beans, 1 cup of corn, substituted my own cooked/chopped chicken for the canned and omitted the ranch dressing . It turned out so yummy! Similiar to Claim Jumpers Southwest Eggroll Appetizer. Now if I could get the recipe to their dipping sauce ........ Here's the picture from her blog:
A few of Jenny's other recipes that I have tried are:
Chicken Peanut Thai Noodles
Cheesy Stufffed Baked Ziti
Creamy Chicken Italiano
There are so many more I want to try! She also has great pictures of every recipe and for me this is a must since I like to know what it's going to look like at the end. So go to her blog. Pick a recipe. Make it. Eat it up. Go back and tell her how great it is.
