  This weekend I felt the need to be creative. In a food sense. Maybe I am nesting, or feeling the need to nourish my people. Whatever the impetus, I was in the kitchen. A lot. And loving it.

I made a pumpkin spice cake on Friday, with cream cheese frosting. Then on Saturday I made a double batch of chocolate chip cookie dough. White and dark chocolate chips, my own recipe. 

Then today, I baked the cookies, made dinner rolls from scratch, and made crunchy baked chicken for dinner. Here is my chicken recipe:

Crunchy Chicken

4 chicken breasts, cut into strips or nuggets or left whole

2 eggs
1/4 cup light Mayo
1 cup seasoned bread crumbs
1 cup crushed saltines

Beat eggs and mayo together 
Mix bread and cracker crumbs together in another bowl
Dip chicken into egg mixture then roll in crumbs to coat
Place on foil lined pan

Bake at 375F 15-20 min.
Serve with light Ranch dressing for dipping

Can I come live with you? I like cookies, little boys, small dogs, most teenagers, and I don't take up much room.....

Congratulations on the new little Texan!

Sounds yummy. I always like to cook some homemade comfort food when I am feeling out of sorts. Actually I love to cook up some good food anytime and wish I had more time to do so. I am going to have to try your chicken recipe. I've been dieting and it is made with light mayo and chicken so it shouldn't be too bad.
I can't imagine how hard it must be worrying about PBJ. I am keeping her in my prayers.
