My Creamy Chicken Spread will be a great addition to your Super Bowl Party Food! Or make this spread for a fun anytime snack whenever you feel like it.

My Creamy Chicken Spread is excellent for snacking! This recipe is a little different than the majority of my recipes. This fun little spread is definitely savory as a chicken spread should be,  not sweet.

The thing I find interesting about this recipe is that it’s the type of food that keeps you coming back for more. Every time I have this spread I do the same thing.

I spread some on 2 or 3 crackers, then I walk away. But after a few minutes I find myself going back for more. My Creamy Chicken Spread is just one of those things you will probably enjoy eating, just a little at a time!

This Creamy Chicken Spread could also be used as a sandwich spread, if you like. :)

I absolutely LOVE the Swanson brand chunk canned chicken! So that’s what I used in this recipe. This White Premium Chunk Chicken Breast is a great source of low-fat protein  and it’s certified by the American Heart Association!

No, I am not associated with them in any way. I just really like that there are no preservatives! Of course if you have leftover rotisserie chicken that would be great too.

Freshly chopped green onions on top always add a nice touch. But if you don’t like them, leave them off!

This Creamy Chicken Spread is great with any cracker, but a few of my favorites with this spread are Ritz crackers and Triscuits.

1. Place all ingredients in a food processor, process until celery is coarsely chopped. Or once cream cheese has softened, stir ingredients together by with a heavy spoon.

Creamy Pasta with Ham & Peas

2015-01-06_4140

My Creamy Pasta with Ham & Peas makes dinner hassle-free and delicious any night of the week! 2015-01-06 Creamy Pasta with Ham & Peas 4148 Pasta always makes a great weeknight dinner. You can do just about anything with pasta. If your house is anything like mine you probably see happy faces when you serve pasta for dinner. My guys love pasta! I mean they love, love, love a good hearty pasta dish. That’s why I am constantly playing with different pasta combinations just to keep things fresh.

Today I share with you my own version of Creamy Pasta with Ham & Peas.  Unlike many sauces out there this one does NOT start with two cups of heavy whipping cream. This dish is incredibly easy to whip together and is full of easy ingredients.

Basically, I took a few of our favorite ingredients, pasta, ham (great way to use up leftovers), peas, and of course a nice flavorful creamy sauce. Okay you got me, my youngest is not a pea enthusiast, but with the Pipe Rigate (large shells) some of the peas ended up in the pasta. You mean some of the peas end up in the pasta and can’t be seen, huh? :)

Hope you really enjoy this one!   [Read more…]

So if it’s a frozen pie why does it look a little soft? Glad you asked! :)

Because that’s the way everyone in my family loves to eat it, myself included. Just being honest.

This pie is one of those pies that might seem vaguely familiar because we’ve all seen many recipes for various cream pies all over the place.

I assure you this one is my own combo, and every single time I make it the kids devour it! Okay, everyone does.

Sometimes I even make it with a chocolate crust, also very good. For some reason this seems to taste so much better in the Summer.

Easy Creamy Chocolatey Pie – so simple, so good!

Okay, let me show you how to put this pie together.
