My Salad Kick

Ok so when I get on a kick , I kinda stay on it for awhile. "I made what my mom calls poached ‪#‎chicken‬. I had a craving for chicken ‪#‎salad‬ so this is what I did... I made a ‪#‎spicy‬ ‪#‎guacamole‬ mayo with raw yellow ‪#‎onions‬ in it. I put corn, banana peppers, tomatoes, LF cheese, corn chips, the guac and my usual tomato bacon salad dressing on it and wow it was good." That was a post from 12/11/15 from https://www.facebook.com/CookingWithMommy/.  Yesterday I made a Spicy BBQ Chicken Salad and it was pretty much the same thing except with Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ Sauce on it.


12/11/15 My salad prior to adding my sauces!

Spicy guac and Tomato Bacon dressing added

Yesterday to use up the last up of the Spicy guac mayo, I cooked the chicken and coated it with the mayo then added the chicken to the salad.

The Lil Chef decided to add a pretzel to my salad to make it "Gourmet"...

These salads are so big and filling all you need is one for like the day...ok half the day! I ate this at 2pm and I don't need dinner.

Hough Bakery - butter cookies

Hough Bakery By Gail Greenberg&Diane Rolfe Hough Bakery was an integral part of me and my family's lives, (most people in Cleveland for that matter) I was heartbroken when they closed. I have always remembered the cookies and doughnuts from this magical bakery. Their products were like nothing I had ever had before (and it was extra magical because I was so little/young) I have been searching for about 30 years for something similar - no luck... but, thank goodness there are a few recipes floating around the internet! Unfortunately even with Archie's being open, my food afflictions will not allow me to enjoy those old time favorites. Luckily, converting is what I do and that's what this site is about so I will switch some things around and see how it turns out! The recipe below is just ONE of my all time favorites, please enjoy! Memories of a signature blue-and-white, string-tied cake box filled with a streusel coffee cake, hot cross buns, sticky pecan rolls, coconut cho…
