Grilled Greek Chicken

4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
1 cup Greek Vinaigrette salad dressing
1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
1/4 cup sliced black olives

In resealable plastic bag, place chicken and salad dressing.  Seal.  Marinade in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours; turning halfway through.
Preheat your grill to 450 degrees.  Place chicken on grill.  Discard used salad dressing.  Grill for 4 minutes on each side, flipping twice to make the criss cross marks, for a total cooking time of 8 minutes. 
Remove from grill. Sprinkle feta cheese and sliced olives over top and serve.
This easy recipe has become one of our favorites!  Marinading the chicken makes it so juicy when it is cooked and we love the Greek flavors.

Sweet Corn Butter

1 cup butter
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt

In small saucepan, combine all ingredients.  Heat over low heat until butter is melted.  Dip cooked corn cob in butter and serve.

We had a party at my sister's house on Memorial Day.  Her and her husband fixed everything; all I had to do was show up and eat! 

This is her recipe and everyone loved it!  You can't taste the sugar, but there is something about the combination of ingredients that made everyone go back for seconds.

Buffalo Turkey Burgers


1 pound ground turkey
1 stalk of celery, finely chopped
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 cup buffalo wing sauce, divided
4 to 6 tablespoons blue cheese dressing or ranch dressing
4 hamburger buns

In large bowl, combine turkey, celery, garlic salt, pepper, and 1/4 cup buffalo wing sauce.


Mix well. divide the meat mixture into 4 sections.  


Make 4 turkey patties.  


Grill over medium high heat until cooked through.  
Basting with the buffalo wing sauce while it is cooking. 


You may want to grill them on a sheet of aluminum foil sprayed with non stick cooking spray if they are too soft to place straight on the grill.


Place the patties on hamburger buns.  I like to toast mine first.  


Spread dressing on top of burgers.  Makes 4 servings.


I broke one on the most important steps when you make a recipe!  I found the recipe on Gingerlock's Kitchen several weeks ago and I couldn't wait to try it.  Instead of going back and rereading the recipe, I tried to make it from memory.  I always tell people to be sure and read the recipe before you, make it and I broke that rule!

I added the celery to the turkey meat.  On Jordan's blog Gingerlock's Kitchen, she puts it on top of the burger along with the dressing.  My husband is not a big celery fan and would never had but them on the burger, so by mixing it in, I tricked him into eating it.  The celery also made the burgers really juicy.  So I guess it was a good mistake to make.

Thanks Jordan for the recipe!  We loved it and will be making it again and again!



My new cookbook is available at schools, businesses, hospitals, and book fairs in cities across the United States.  Be sure to pick up a copy or two, when you see them.  They make great gifts!

Baked Rosemary Chicken


4 pounds whole chicken
2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon fresh rosemary, minced, or 1 teaspoon dried rosemary
1/4 teaspoon garlic salt

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

In a small bowl, combine 1 tablespoon olive oil, lemon juice, rosemary and garlic salt.  Mix well.  Set aside.

Place the lemon that you juiced for the 1 tablespoon of lemon juice in the cavity of the chicken.  If you are using fresh rosemary, add a few sprigs to the cavity also.

 Place chicken in a roasting pan and rub 1 tablespoon olive oil over chicken.
Bake chicken for 1 hour.  Remove from oven.  Brush the rosemary mixture over chicken.

Bake an additional 15 minutes.


Have you ever purchased a roasted chicken from the grocery store, get it home, and have to scape the herbs off of the top of the chicken, because the herbs were burnt and bitter?  By brushing the rosemary mixture over the chicken and baking it for only 15 minutes, you add flavor to your chicken, and keep the herbs tasting fresh and delicious.
