Stuffed Strawberries

My friend Corinne came over this last Saturday. I hadn't seen her forever, and we had a lot to talk about. But talking is much more fun when you can be making, and eating, something delicious at the same time and Corinne was so nice to bring over ingredients for these cream cheese stuffed strawberries.

Understandably Corinne did most of the talking since I had my mouth full of these delicious little treats.

Creamy Chicken Taquitos

If there is one food that has been on our menu plan weekly for the past month, it is these delectable taquitos. I've always like taquitos; they're yummy, crispy and so portable. I tend to like anything that I can hold in my hand and eat without touching a utensil. But I usually don't like to buy ready-made taquitos. I have issues with other people (or even worse, some machine in a factory) preparing my meat. Not that it wouldn't be tasty but I like to know exactly what kind of meat I'm putting in my mouth.

Yes, I have control issues, but I hate gnawing on fatty meat pieces. I like to be in charge, especially when it comes to my food.

Strawberry Coffee Cake

...or raspberry, or maybe even blueberry coffee cake. In my case it was all three, a very berry coffee cake that stole my heart one Monday night.
