My Complete Profile

Email Me

Kayla, my oldest. She is 4 1/2 and is a sweet, loving and silly little girl. She took us 2 ½ years and 3 IVF’s to conceive. Kayla is allergic to dairy. We manage her allergy and work to balance her safety with giving her a normal childhood. Kayla loves to read books and play games - she amazes me every day.

Alysa, my youngest. She is 3 years old and is a silly little spitfire. She’s our monkey and loves to climb on everything. She was a “natural” baby, but it was only b/c of my wonderful doctors that we were able to stop an impending miscarriage. Alysa suffers from Acid Reflux Disease and sleep apnea. She may be little, but she has a big personality. She adores her big sister and is so much fun to be around. She keeps me laughing every day.

One of My Favorites
So in keeping up in the partying mood, I thought I'd share one of my favorite dishes. I'd love to actually make it for all of you, but I can't even make it for myself with Kayla's dairy allergy. So it's one of those recipes gone, but not forgotten in this house. And I hope to be able to make it again one day.

Chicken Breast Parmesan
1/3 c dry seasoned bread crumbs
1/2 c grated parmesan cheese
1/2 tsp paprika
4 skinless boneless chicken breast halves (I cut them in half)
1/8 tsp salt
1/8 tsp black pepper
1/2 c flour (all purpose or wheat)
2 tbsp margarine or butter, melted

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Coat baking sheet or dish with spray. In one dish put flour, in next dish, put butter and in last dish mix cheese and bread crumbs.

Sprinkle the chicken with salt and pepper. Dip first in flour, then in butter, then roll in the bread mixture. Transfer to the dish. Bake uncovered for 15-20 minutes or until fully cooked.

They are delicious and tender and freeze really well also. I always at least double the recipe so I have left-overs. They reheat just as yummy. For those who can, Enjoy!

Ooh, not sure this was a good one to post, as I'm now craving them.

And for those that don't know, my mortgage company made a big oops when we refinanced in December and messed up our escrow account. They expected me to pay a huge additional amount to them monthly to make up for their error. But I'm happy to say that as of this past Friday, we are escrow-free. I have deleted my escrow account so now J and I are free to pay our taxes and insurance all on our own. This is a huge load off for me, b/c I have never been a fan of escrow accounts. I've been meaning to do this for a while, and they just gave me the push to make the calls. And now I don't have the stress of being in the "hole" with the escrow account. Yay!

I have had Spring fever in full force these past few days as it's been very warm in the 50's. The girls have been thrilled to get outside and the exercise of our walks is good for me too. :) But now, it's snowing here (flurrying), so it's putting a damper on my Spring Fever. I'm so ready for spring!

Thanks for the chicken recipe. It sound yummy! Good for you on the escrow account! I'm glad you have that monkey off your back. And as for spring fever. I've visited the 4 very lovely greenhouses near our house and have my landscaping planned to a "T" this summer (not sure we can afford it though) and it's snowing like the dickens here today. I NEED SPRING! Or a trip somewhere warm :)
