You may have noticed that I haven’t been around as much over the past few months. A lot has changed in my life at that time. My husband I separated permanently and I moved back into my home. My divorce was finalized at the end of January and I took back my maiden name. I also got a full-time job as a blogger and social media manager for a great company out of California. Working full time has prevented me from being as active here as I would like, but now that I’ve learned the ropes at my new job, I am hoping to post more regularly!
I realized that sometimes as difficult as change can be, it can also be good.
I have grown so much over the past few months and have really learned a lot about who I am and what I want my life to be. And for me, it’s all about living life to the fullest….living a rich, yummy, luscious life! That includes amazing real food and holistic ways of living that make me feel good about who I am!
This year for Valentine’s Day, I made this stuffed chicken breast based on one that I have bought before at a local meat market. I first made it a few months ago for the first time. No recipe, just inspiration….and it turned out so much better than I expected. In fact, I loved it so much that I will definitely be making it often….it’s just way too good not to!
This recipe is fairly simple to make, but it will give any restaurant chicken a run for its money. It is a little more time-consuming to prepare than some of my other recipes but SO worth it!
I’ve made it both gluten and grain-free.
Pair this with some homemade garlic mashed potatoes or rosemary roasted potatoes and some green beans for an amazing dinner!
