Chicken Breasts with Parmesan Pesto


  • 6 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves (about 2 pounds total)
  • Salt
  • Ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan Pesto (see recipe below)
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  3. Heat butter and oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium heat. Add chicken rolls; cook, uncovered, about 20 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink, turning occasionally for even browning. Remove toothpicks.
  4. Transfer to a serving platter. Garnish with basil sprigs, if desired. Makes 6 servings.
  5. Parmesan Pesto: Place 1 cup lightly packed fresh basil leaves, 3/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese, 1/4 cup olive oil, and 1 small clove garlic, halved, in a blender or food processor.

So I’m aware that I have completely fallen off the blogging map but I’m back for the time being seeing as how I actually have free time! My life has been totally crazy but I have managed to fit some books in…so lets get to it!

I just finished reading ‘And Then There Was You’ by Nora Roberts. The book consists of two different stories, each about home. The First is ‘Island of Flowers’ in which the main character, Laine Simmons, goes to Hawaii to find her father. However, when she finds him she also meets her father’s business partner, Dillon O’Brian. Despite being incredibly handsome, Dillon keeps a close and suspicious eye on Laine, and sometimes she doesn’t mind at all…

The second story, ‘Less of a Stranger’ is about Megan Miller and her grandfather, who is the only family she has left. The two of them own and run Joyland Amusement Park but when the gorgeous David Katcherton strolls in and try’s to not only to buy Joyland but win Megans heart…well things get a little complicated.

I personally was more of a fan of ‘Less of a Stranger’ but both were a great and easy read!

Currently I’m reading ‘You Slay Me’ by Katie MacAlister. I just started it today but I’m really enjoying it! Description via Katie MacAlister’s web site: The first book in a sexy, humorous paranormal thriller series featuring Aisling Grey, an apprentice Guardian, and her sometimes boyfriend, sometimes foe Drake Vireo, wyvern (leader) of one of the four dragon septs. Aisling finds her true calling when she travels to Paris to deliver a medieval object that is part of a set sought after for the power it wields. There she meets the handsome Drake, a man who is not at all what he seems. Implicated in the circumstances of two murders, Aisling, the demon she summons for help (and subsequently can’t get rid of) named Jim, and Drake find themselves caught up in a web of lies and confusion that could well result in the demon lords of hell ruling the mortal world.

Up next for me to read is ‘Stray’ by Rachel Vincent. Description via Rachel Vincent’s web site: I look like an all-American grad student. But I am a werecat, a shape-shifter, and I live in two worlds. Despite reservations from my family and my Pride, I escaped the pressure to continue my species and carved out a normal life for myself. Until the night a Stray attacked. This brush with danger was all my Pride needed to summon me back... for my own protection. Yeah, right. But I'm no meek kitty. I'll take on whatever and whoever--I have to in order to find my friends. Watch out, Strays--'cause I got claws, and I'm not afraid to use them...

Its been awhile since I last posted. I’ve been extremely busy with work, school, and personal things as well. Currently I am sitting at my desk, chugging Dunkin’ coffee (medium, cream, eight sugars) Yumm. A couple of days ago I finished the book ‘She’s Gone Country’ by Jane Porter. It was a good read and I enjoyed it until the end however…It was too sudden, the relationship between Shey and Dane took too sharp of a turn in their relationship. Or maybe it was just the book, I feel like more pages needed to be added to show the growth of their time together as a couple. Not just BOOM! Prego! Married! But in any case I’m glad that I read it and despite my feelings about the end, would still recommend this book to others. Currently I am reading ‘Going Too Far’ by Jennifer Echols. So far I like it, its set in a small town (a little like the one I grew up in), and it’s about two people crossing paths who in other circumstances wouldn’t. I’m right in the middle of the book, in the balance between what you think will happen and what actually will; I’ll let ya know how it goes. Also, my next purchase will be ‘The Chosen One’ by Carol Lynn Williams. The book is about a 13-year-old trapped in a polygamist cult – very excited to read.

Veggie Fettuccine Alfredo

Recipes to Help You Get Healthy in a Hurry.


  • 3/4 cup vegetable broth or reduced-sodium chicken broth (see Tips for Two)
  • 4 large cloves garlic, peeled
  • 4 ounces whole-wheat fettuccine
  • 1 small zucchini, cut into matchsticks
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch, mixed with 1 tablespoon water
  • 2 tablespoons reduced-fat sour cream
  • Pinch of freshly grated nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground pepper, or to taste
  • 3/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese, divided
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley


  1. Bring a large saucepan of water to a boil. Combine broth and garlic cloves in a small saucepan; bring to a boil over high heat. Cover, reduce heat to a simmer and cook until the garlic cloves are soft, about 15 minutes.
  2. After the garlic has simmered about 10 minutes, cook fettuccine in the boiling water, stirring often, for 8 minutes. Drop in zucchini and cook until the fettuccine is just tender, about 1 minute more.
  3. Meanwhile, transfer the garlic and broth to a blender. Process until the mixture is smooth, about 1 minute. (Use caution when blending hot liquids; see Tip.) Return the mixture to the pot and bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Add cornstarch mixture; whisk it until slightly thickened, about 15 seconds. Remove from the heat and whisk in sour cream, nutmeg and pepper. Return the pot to very low heat to keep the sauce warm. (Do not boil.)
  4. Drain the pasta and place in a large bowl. Add the sauce and 1/2 cup Parmesan; toss to coat well. Sprinkle with parsley and serve immediately, passing the remaining 1/4 cup Parmesan separately.
  5. Tips for Two: Leftover canned broth keeps up to 5 days in the refrigerator or up to 3 months in your freezer. Leftover broth in aseptic packages keep for up to 1 week in the refrigerator. Add to soups, sauces, stews; use for cooking rice and grains; add a little when reheating leftovers to prevent them from drying out. Pureeing hot liquids: Hot liquids can splatter out of a blender when it’s turned on. To avoid this, remove the center piece of the lid. Loosely cover the hole with a folded kitchen towel and turn the blender on. Better airflow will keep the contents from spewing all over the kitchen—and yourself.

Chocolate Caramel Apples

Servings: 8

Take caramel apples to new heights with these dark chocolate-dipped, pecan-studded delights. You'll never go back to plain old caramel apples again. Be sure to let the caramel firm up before dipping the apples in the chocolate glaze. Serve this decadent treat at Halloween parties or give them away as a stunning holiday gift. Using nice, tart apples such as Granny Smith will give the apples a sophisticated slant that will appeal to grown up tastes.

  • 2 14-ounce packages vanilla caramels, unwrapped
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 8 to 10 medium apples
  • 8 to 10 wooden craft sticks
  • 2-1/2 cups semisweet chocolate pieces (15 ounces)
  • 1 tablespoon shortening
  • 1-1/2 cups chopped pecans, toasted, and/or coarsely chopped peanuts


  1. Butter a piece of foil; place on a baking sheet. Set aside. In a medium saucepan combine caramels and water. Cook over medium-low heat until caramels are melted and smooth, stirring frequently. Turn heat to low.
  2. Wash and dry apples. Insert stick into stem end of each apple. Dip apples into hot caramel mixture, spooning caramel over apples to coat entirely. Allow excess caramel to drip off. Place on prepared foil; let stand about 30 minutes or until firm.
  3. In a small saucepan melt chocolate pieces and shortening over low heat, stirring constantly. Dip bottom halves of apples in chocolate, allowing excess to drip off. Sprinkle with nuts. Place on a piece of unbuttered foil or waxed paper set on a baking sheet. Let stand about 30 minutes or until set. Makes 8 to 10 servings.
  4. Although most apple varieties will work for Chocolate Caramel Apples, youngsters may prefer sweeter ones, such as Gala, Delicious, or Crispin. Many adults, however, will delight in the contrast of sweet caramel with tart apples, such as Granny Smith, Braeburn, or Jonathan

Thrilling Thursdays

Need a dose of thrill in your life? Well, since it is getting closer to Halloween, there’s a thrilling and scary place I’d like to tell ya about! So as I’ve mention before I live in Pennsylvania and there is a lovely little place called the Eastern State Penitentiary on
Fairmount Avenue
in Philadelphia. The Eastern State Penitentiary is and old prison that was opened in 1829 and held some 75,000 inmates including the gangster Al Capone. In 1971 the penitentiary was closed and in 1994 it was opened as a historical site. Today you can visit the Eastern State Penitentiary and tour the prison during the day. BUT around Halloween time ‘Terror Behind the Walls’ opens up at this lovely prison for all as a massive haunted house. So if you are looking for a thrill I highly recommend you visit the Eastern State Penitentiary! For more information visit their website by clicking HERE

Last night I finished the beautiful book ‘Matched’ by Ally Condie. Cassia lives in a controlled and safe world, or at least that’s what she thinks until after her Matching ceremony. The Society chooses everything for you; your food, your job, your spouse…and no one questions it. This system is created for a perfect life, a happy life, a safe life. But, when Cassia sees Ky Markham's face on her screen instead of her existent match, Xander; she begins to question the world she lives in. Cassia is taken on an exciting journey in ‘Matched’ and I for one can’t wait until the sequel! This book shows us what it means to follow your heart; no matter who’s telling you its wrong. Mrs. Condie makes you think about what our lives could really turn into…is this possible? Is this what we will become?-- An exceptional read! I recommended this book to anyone in hopes that it will become one of your favorite books, I know its become one of mine.

A Black Tie Affair & Breakfast in Bed

I’ve been a bit behind with my posts lately but as my mom always says; “school come first!” My schedule is crazy busy right now and sleep is on the top of my list. However, I have finished two books; ‘A Black Tie Affair’ by Sherrill Bodine and ‘Breakfast in Bed’ by Robin Kaye.

‘A Black Tie Affair’ was good with a little mystery, forbidden love, and fashion. This romance, set in Chicago, is about the determined Athena Smith and Drew, the one who got away. A robbery of vintage dresses Athena is examining occurs right after she is drugged with a truth serum that the same dresses are covered in. The mystery of the dresses brings Drew and Athena together to deal with not only the problem at hand but with questions from the past. This was a very cute story, simple but it still gives you the warm fuzzies!

“Breakfast in Bed’ was so good! I loved this story; this is something that I would want to happen to me! Ugh, why can’t I have my own real life romance novel? Is that too much to ask? Anywho, the lovely and talented Becca Larsen moves from Philadelphia to New York in the hope of getting away from the family name. To her dismay, the move takes her right into the apartment of Rich Ronaldi, her best friend’s brother. The mix up of their living situation causes the two to become roommates and eventually Becca’s job as ‘Domestic God’ coach to Rich so he can get his girlfriend back. However, this new ‘Domestic God’ may be too good for Becca to let go of…I read this book in one day and for me, lately, that’s surprising! But I just couldn’t put it down! A must read!

I AM SO EXCITED!! Seriously, I am so thrilled right now because I just came home from classes and found that I had a package in the mail. First of all I have to say that anytime I get something besides bills in the mail I'm excited, however, I was extra excited to see that it was from Nely, who has the fabulous book blog, All About {N}. When I got up to my apartment I almost had a Glee moment in which I sing while opening the envelope to reveal three books that I have been wanting to read since seeing them on Nely's blog, yes, that excited. However, instead of traumatizing my cats with my horrible voice, I calmly yet quickly sat down on my futon and pulled out my goodies from the envelope. Revealed: 'Breakfast in Bed' by Robin Kaye...'A Black Tie Affair' by Sherrill Bodine...and 'Matched' by Ally Condie. I feel like Emeril Lagasse is the sense that I want to yell "BAM!" right now because I now have these fantastic books thanks to Nely!! All About {N}

So, I'm pretty sure I'm going to start with 'A Black Tie Affair' by Sherrill Bodine. This book is about Athena, a fashion curator, who gets the job of her dreams. But, something goes horribly wrong and Athena joins her ex, Drew, to solve the mystery at hand. Along the way feelings, old and new, emerge as the two work together...Can't wait to read!!

The Nanny Diaries

Last night I finally finished 'The Nanny Diaries' by Emma McLaughlin & Nicola Kraus and it was pretty darn good! Surprisingly, the movie goes pretty well with the story line of the novel and I really liked that. Also, I think my favorite parts in this book was when Nanny, the main character, had inner dialogues that only the reader knew about. Almost making you wish that what she was thinking she would say out loud, because lets face it; most of us wish we could in our everyday lives. I would recommend anyone read this if your looking for a simple but entertaining book! Also, if you haven't seen the movie yet I would check it out, its cute and heartwarming; just like the book.

Mindless Mondays

Well folks I have come across some pretty important headlines that I would like to share with you on this lovely Mindless Monday…let’s dive right in shall we?

So, everyone knows Will Smith, you know; tall dark and handsome. His adorable daughter Willow Smith has come out with a single ladies and gents! What is this masterpiece called you ask? ‘Whip My Hair’. I have to confess that my roommate and I actually like this song, and soon there will be a video coming!! Pumped? I sure as hell am! However, my question is what will this do to her later? Ms. Smith I only 9 years old and I have to wonder if she will be just another star pop-singer who falls of the map? Yes, both of her parents are talented and have big names for themselves but is this young lady coming into the media spotlight too soon?

Lindsay Lohan. Oh Christ…really? So according to zimbio.com Lindsay along with her mom and sister went to the Dream Center, a mission and outreach program, which houses teen girls. The trio handed out purses as gifts and in my opinion probably some brilliant words of advice and encouragement…give me a damn break. Send this girl to a padded cell and throw away the keys I’m so done hearing about her is anyone else with me?

...You can all thank me later for updating you on these very important stories, I know your lives are better for having this tid bit of information. Happy Mindless Monday's everyone!

Sleepy Sundays

It is a beautiful Sunday here in Philadelphia, PA and I am feeling extremely lazy today and the only activity I could think of is to head over to Rittenhouse Square with a blanket, and plop down down with a good book. Rittenhouse is a really pretty park in Philly with tons of great people watching, adorable dogs, and a perfect place to read, have a catch with some friends, or simply sit down on a bench and watch your surroundings. So on this Sleep Sunday head over to your nearest park and relax, that's what Sunday's are for after all right?

So, I’ve been noticing that quite a few bloggers do themes for days of the week. They have a catchy title with the day of the week in it and have a certain topic or subject matter that they talk about on that day. Well, I want to try it out! This is what I was thinking…

Monday’s would be “Mindless Mondays” – I would talk about the things happening in the current social media. I feel as though we get so much information through TV, internet, radio, news, even word of mouth that we become mindless with all of this information we’re getting about famous celebrities (information that we really don’t need in order to get through our day). So, “Mindless Monday” would be a gathering of meaningless happenings that the general public is obsessed with.

Tuesday’s would be “Tasty Tuesdays” – I don’t know about all of you but I L-O-V-E food, especially the tasty kind! So Tuesdays I would have a couple of recipe idea’s maybe even breakfast, lunch, and dinner options.

Thursday’s would be “Thrilling Thursdays” – Every Thursday I would have a thrilling activity, place to go, etc... That I would talk about.

Sunday’s would be “Sleepy Sundays” – I believe Sunday’s are for sleep, or lazy things. So, this is when I would talk about relaxing things to do, go, buy, etc…

AND OF COURSE I’m still going to talk about books! I’m definitely not heading away from that so don’t worry!

What are your thoughts? Ideas? Opinions? Let me know!

Yesterday afternoon I went to my second home, also known as Borders, to find a book. Well I had some luck and ran across ‘The Nanny Diaries’ by Emma McLaughlin & Nicola Kraus. As some of you may know this book was made into a movie in 2007 staring Scarlett Johansson. I loved it! It was a very sweet and heartwarming movie. Surprisingly, I had no idea this had been a book. Can you say clueless? Anyways, I excitedly bought the book and started reading it last night. So far I’m loving it! The banter the main character, Nanny, has going on in her own head, describing how a job interview goes to be a care giver to a child of wealthy parents is fantastic! I even had one of those moments in which I laughed out loud, realized it, and slowly lifted my eyes to see if anyone heard me…Can’t wait to keep reading!

Hello Monday! I hope everyone had a fantastic and relaxing weekend! I was definitely busy however; I got to finish two great books! In my last post I mentioned that I started to read ‘Halfway to the Grave’ by Jeaniene Frost and that I wasn’t too impressed. Now, I am the type of person to hate admitting when they’re wrong BUT in this case I have no problem whatsoever saying that in fact “I WAS WRONG” because I thoroughly enjoyed reading not only ‘Halfway to the Grave’ but the second book in the series as well; ‘One Foot in the Grave’.

This series is about half vampire, half mortal; Cat Crawfield and the dangerously sexy Bones. Cat has vowed to rid the world of vampires; those nasty bloodsuckers that kill every living human in their path (or so she thinks). However, her mind is reluctantly changed after a run in with a “vicious parasite” vampire named Bones. These books are about their difficult journey into trust, love, and danger. And in my opinion, an excellent read!

I can't wait to read the rest of this series in which there are five books with two on the way but I'm going to venture off and read something else...what my next book will be I'm not sure so Borders...HERE I COME!
