Easy Creamy Chicken Salad

I've had a bad day with the arthritis in my hands and the last thing I wanted to do was cook. Honey loves chicken salad so that is what I came up with. A little boiling, chopping and mixing and i have a happy husband once again.

Easy Creamy Chicken Salad

1 can Chunk Chicken Breast
2 eggs, boiled
1 TBS Mayonnaise
1/4 cup Greek Yogurt
2 small green onions, chopped wekk
2 TBLS pickle relish

Drain Chicken and set aside. When eggs are boiled and cool chop them really good and add to chicken. Add chopped up green onion. Mix in Mayonnaise, yogurt and pickle relish.

Pictured here I ate mine as an appetizer on sweet baby peppers. 

You can add any one of these ingredients according to your taste but this was great to us.

Healthy Chocolate Yogurt Fruit Dip

Recently our family got together because some relatives from north Indiana were in town and I volunteered to take a fruit tray and dip. I made a traditional Creamy Fruit Dip that was great but then I wanted something not quiet so sweet so I made this Chocolate Yogurt Dip. Both dips were extremely easy and yummy. Many at the party asked how I made the Chocolate dip so here is the recipe. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did!

1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 Tbsp. milk
Fresh fruit or whatever you desire for dipping

Directions:

Mix all ingredients very well until all sugar has dissolved. At least 3 minutes.

Easy Southern Squash with Onions

I love squash stewed down with onions in butter. I grew up on this dish and of all the ways I eat squash this is my favorite and I might add easiest squash recipe. For years I did not cook with onions because Honey had problems with them, but lately he is doing much better and I have put onions in everything to make up for lost time and just in case I have to quit again!

If you can't have the onions it's still good but there something about adding a big ole onion to this dish that makes it delish!

 Easy Southern Squash with Onions


2 lbs Yellow Crookneck Squash
1/2 stick of butter
1 large onion
salt and pepper to taste

Add butter to a no stick pan and melt on low. While butter is melting wash squash well, cut off ends and chop it into small pieces. Peel and chop onion into small pieces.

Add to pan and mix well so that it is covered in the butter. Cook on medium heat covered until vegetables are tender. Then I like to turn up the heat and brown it real well, that's the reason I suggest a no stick pan.

*To make it just a little less calories I added about 2 tablespoons of olive oil and not so much butter to this recipe.

A great side dish with any meal!

My Own Ranch Salad Dressing

Tonight is Grilled Fish and Salad night. Honey decided this morning that he seriously wants to loose weight so here we go on a new adventure.

I am making homemade Ranch dressing to go on a Wedge salad. Yuumm I'm ready to eat now!

I am starting with Penzeys Buttermilk Ranch Dressing Base, have you ever tried Penzeys spices? If not you must. A few months ago Honey and I was talking about how my cooking seems to get better and better. Later that night I was thinking what makes it better I use the same recipes over and over then it hit me I have been buying Penzys spices for a while now. I use them as I run out of my old spices and yes, they are better! Check out Penzeys spices HERE.

My Own Ranch Salad Dressing

Ingredients: 
1 TBLS Penzeys Butter Milk Ranch Dressing Base
1 TBLS water
1/4 cup mayonaisse
1/4 cup sour cream
1/2 cup skim milk or milk of your choice

Directions:
To begin mix base well in water and let set for five minutes. Wisk this into mayonaisse and sour cream. Add milk and blend well. Store in refrigerator and shake well before using.

To make buttermilk ranch substitute milk for buttermilk.

You may double this recipe if you want. I made it for two people and had rather make fresh each time.
