Baked Boneless Chicken Breast

Recipe for Baked Boneless Chicken Breast makes this favorite chicken dish much lower in fat than it would be if it was fried. Chicken fillets are dipped in melted butter and rolled in dry bread crumbs (I suppose you could use Panko breadcrumbs as well) and then baked in hot oven. Crispy breaded boneless chicken is much healthier and tastier meal for your kids than frozen fried chicken or chicken nuggets made from processed meat. more......more

E!'s Giuliana Rancic Announces Double Mastectomy

This week Giuliana Rancic made an announcement that she'll be undergoing a double mastectomy. Having experienced my own slew of cancer drama, I just want to say how nice it was to have a relatable, inspiring spokesperson for this sort of thing.Recently at MD Anderson, the hospital I attend, I witnessed a vast display of quilts - all made in the name creating ovarian cancer awareness. (My particular disease.) While quilts are nice (I guess?), I really had a hard time feeling connected to them. I mean, they're quilts....more
