Easy Grilled Chicken

This is so easy, I'm not sure it counts as a recipe. Take chicken breasts and poke several times with a fork and put into a large ziploc bag. Then pour zesty Italian dressing in the bag and squeeze the air out of the bag and seal. Marinate chicken overnight in fridge. Then cook on an outdoor grill. The thinner the chicken breast, the more evenly they cook. I cut my chicken breasts horizontally in half to make two thinner pieces. This is best when grilled on an outdoor grill.

The Spice of Life

Just a quick suggestion for organizing all those little spice bottles- lay them flat in a drawer. I love being to see them easily when I pull out my drawer. Bigger jars of spices and cellophane bags are stashed up on my cupboards.

What I Add to Chocolate Chip Cookies

#1 I like soft chocolate chip cookies that are not flat. Adding a approx 1/2 cup of flour to a chocolate chip cookie recipe makes them soft and more of a mound than a flat disk. Bake a couple of trial cookies and if the texture isn't what you want, add a little more flour and bake a couple more til you get what you want.

#2 Cinnamon- oh it's so good. I never would of thought of adding this til I saw in it a recipe. I add about 1/2 tsp to 1 tsp of cinnamon. Gives the cookies a little more umph.
