  • 2-2 1/2 cups of “cooked” chicken.  I used left over rotisserie and chopped into bite size pieces.
  • 6-8 slices of cooked bacon…I lean towards LOTS of BACON
  • Assorted veggies that were in the fridge that I needed to use up..Brussel Sprouts, sliced, assorted colorful peppers, chopped, broccoli, chopped..you can use spinach, kale, onions you name it…and I sautéed them all together in a pan with bacon grease because you need to cook the veggies
  • 1 tbs of mince garlic that I added to the sautéed veggies along with some of my favorite seasonings…your choice!
  • 1 1/2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese…or you can use whatever you have on hand! I saved 1/2 of cheese to put on top
  • 1 cup of Guacamole Salsa that was staring me in the face but the recipe from “Wholesome Yum” suggested a ranch dressing…to time consuming to make and I cut it with 1/4 c of sour cream to make is less spicy (tho if it were just for me, I would not have cut it) and saved about 1/4 c to put on top along with the cheese.




  1. PREHEAT OVER TO 375 degrees
  2. Mix ALL the ingredients into a large bowl and mix **reserving 1/2 cup of cheese & 1/4 c of salsa
  3. Transfer to an 8×8 greased baking dish…
  4. Top with extra salsa and cheese and in the oven it goes, uncovered
  5. Should be ready to eat in about 20 minutes, when cheese is melted and it is bubbly!

THANK YOU Wholesome Yum for your recipe!!! It was delicious and this fed 4 people



Tiramisu that is Easy


This is a recipe that I learned while cooking at the “Fontana de Papa” in Tolfa, Italy!!! What an experience we had there!  Assuntina & Claudio and Matilde were the best!!! This is one of our favorites! Now mind you, in Europe they measure in grams…so I did some “approximations” in cups etc…it’ll be just fine…TRUST ME!!!!

*****NOW….go get everything….measure it, chop it have the coffee made & cooled, and get 3 bowls.*****  THEN, let’s get started!!!



  • 1 c cocoa powder (Hershey’s is just fine)
  • 3 eggs separated
  • 5TBS sugar
  • 2  cups whipping cream OR 2 8oz containers of cool whip (lots easier)
  • 2 cups “cooled” espresso or regular coffee
  • 2 pkgs LU le petit Beurre (butter biscuits)
  • 4 oz dark chocolate bar chopped to chunky pieces (Nestles’, Ghiradelli…etc)
  • 8×11 or 9×13 pan

Have 3 bowls.  (1) egg white (1) egg yolks (1) whipping cream

  • whip egg whites with hand mixer until peaked( largest bowl)
  • whip egg yolks with 5 TBS of sugar
  • fold egg yolks and egg whites together
  • now whip the cream in the 3rd bowl and then fold into egg mixture (***OR use the 2 containers of cool whip)
  • once this is folded together take some and coat the bottom of the 8×11 pan (thin coat)
  • now dip the biscuits into the coffee and then lay it on top of the cream mixture in the pan.  do this until the whole pan is covered (approx 12-15 biscuits)
  • then put another layer or cream just covering the biscuits
  • take a handful of cocoa and sprinkle it around
  • follow with a handful or two of the dark choc and do this for 3 layers with the last layer being biscuit, cream, cocoa & dark chocolate.  once it is done, cover it and refrigerate! It’s like making a lasagna with the layering!

I added more to the ingredients here than I did in the video…I ran out and had to improvise!! It turned out great, by the way!! hahaha
