I am a lover of my husband, adorable children, and last but not least food. I first started baking when I was just a little girl. My mom always had an amazing home-cooked meal on the table and she always encouraged me to help. Much of what I know has come from watching her in the kitchen. I used to love to pretend I owned a restaurant and cook things up for my siblings and their friends. Not much has changed :) Now my sweet husband and kids get to be my taste testers. I love exploring new ingredients and am always looking for the best of the best when it comes to recipes. I hope you enjoy the site as much as I do. Through this blog I will share just a few of my favorite things- my passion for child development, my wonderful family, and my love for food :) Happy blogging!

Company Chicken-Artichoke Bake

-I first tried this while I was out nannying in Virginia a few years back. When the family was busy I would search through the mom's AMAZING cookbooks. I don't own the cookbook so it took me a while to relocate the recipe. Here it is! My husband and I LOVE this meal. The chicken is so tender and yummy! Enjoy!


-1/4 c. butter
-6 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
-1 c. chopped onion
-1 clove garlic, minced
-3 T. flour
-1/4 tsp. salt
-1 1/4 c. dry white wine
-1 c. chicken broth
-1 (3 oz) pkg cream cheese
-1 (14 oz) can artichoke hearts, drained and halved
-1/2 c. sliced almonds


Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add chicken, and cook 5 minutes on each side or until browned. Remove chicken from skillet, reserving pan drippings; place chicken in a 2-quart casserole. Set aside. Saute onion and garlic in reserved pan drippings until tender. Add flour and salt, stirring until smooth. Cook 1 minute, stirring constantly. Gradually add wine and broth; cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture is thickened and bubbly. add cream cheese, stirring until cheese melts. Remove from heat; set aside. Arrange halved artichoke hearts over chicken. Spoon cream cheese mixture over chicken and artichokes. Top with almonds. Bake, covered, at 350 degrees for 45 to 50 minutes or until bubbly.

  1. I LOVE this dinner! I have made it a few times now. For my husband and I it made a lot so it was nice to have leftovers. The second time I made this I put it over white rice, which I think I will do everytime now! My husband loved it too :)
