    Chicken Divan (Or as we call it, Chicken Divine)

    My first experience with Chicken Divan was when a friend talked me into trying it.  We were having lunch in a restaurant that specialized in a variety of crepe dishes, so my encounter was not the usual presentation.  I was intrigued but still skeptical when my dish arrived, but I had to confess it did look and smell amazing.  Light golden crepes, lightly drizzled with the same creamy Mornay sauce that spilled from the ends, revealed juicy grilled chicken breast […]

    Macaroni & Cheese Recipe with a twist

    Here’s a great Macaroni & Cheese recipe adapted from the Vitamix Whole Foods Cookbook. It’s amazing when you have the right kitchen tools how pleasurable cooking can be. Vitamix makes MidLife simpler. I followed the original recipe with a few exceptions. Instead of making and seasoning the bread crumbs, I used Italian Seasoned Panko bread crumbs mixed with tablespoon of butter. Quick, easy and packed with flavor. I also added a little extra cheese. The cheese sauce looked a little […]

    Smokey Tomato Bisque

    Another Great Recipe from Vicky Akins …. One of the best things about cold weather, is that it fosters our addiction to comfort food.  There’s nothing quite like retreating from the chilly weather, peeling off your frozen gloves, stomping the snow off your boots & being greeted by the delicious smell of homemade soup.  If you don’t live in an area that gets cold, I think you’re missing out. I don’t know too many people who don’t have
