to this blog that I have been away from so very long. I thought I would combine it with my country living blog, however, I still love to have my own cookbook in a way. To get started is a wondeful recipe that I have previously posted on my country living blog, but feel it deserves a place here. Enjoy!
I ran across a recipe titled Italian Chicken Sticks. I decided to give this a try with my homemade pasta. Oh, let me tell you!.............................just wonderful! Now, in my cooking, I will never take those tiny, grainy bread crumbs for granted ever again! I have made them to be a constant in my pantry. If you are tired of chicken fried, baked, and roasted,..............give this tasty and( may I add, quick and easy), recipe a try. You'll be glad you did! Enjoy!
