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.

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.

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…
