This Spinach Artichoke Chicken recipe is without a doubt one of my favorites for a quick, yet oh so delicious weeknight or weekend recipe for supper. I knew it was one of my favorites, but was so excited to learn that Pinterest named it one of the Top Pinned Recipes for 2013. What a huge honor!


And now, I’m starving!!! Heh!

So, were any of your favorites included? What kinds of recipes would you like to see in 2014? I’d love to know! My family has already started putting in their requests, so you can be sure it will include cookies and cake if Little Buddy has his way and lots of protein if the Mister has his. Now, if I have my way, they’ll all be simple, and oh so delicious!


Much love,

    Your recipes look amazing! Thank you for sharing and I mean this from the bottom of my heart. I love to cook and am always wanting to try something new. I often go on Youtube and am astounding at how many people to not want to share their recipes. Why? If you have a recipe for flancocho that you would be willing to share that would be great. Again, thanks for sharing.
