Domestic Diva Tip #3

Natural Remedy for MIGRAINE HEADACHES:
A number of studies have found that eating feverfew leaves can decrease the frequency and severity of migraine headaches. Buy this plant at a farmers' market, or grow it yourself. Eat one leaf daily. If symptoms don't improve after a week, you can take a maximum of two leaves. Some people develop mild mouth sores, but they're harmless; just stop chewing the leaves for a few days. Don't take feverfew if you're pregnant.

What's Cookin'?


Heather Shadle

6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (or less if you want)

2 T butter

1/2 cup parmesan cheese (I use the already grated)

1/4 cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs

Combine parmesan cheese and bread crumbs. Melt butter. Dip chicken in

butter. Then coat with bread crumb-parmesan mixture. Bake at 400 degrees

for 25 minutes.

Hint: Cut the breasts into strips or use chicken tenders. They are smaller

pieces so you can get more breadcrumb mixture covering the chicken. For

two people you can use 2 chicken breast halves and only about half or a third

of the mixture, then save the crumb mixture for another time. This is very

tasty and very easy.

Domestic Diva Tip #2

I'm choosing this tip because we happened to have spaghetti for dinner tonight and I wish I would have read this first:
"When I make spaghetti for my three young children, instead of cutting up the pasta with a knife and fork, I run a pizza cutter across each plate a few times. It neatly cuts the pasta into bite-size pieces."

Domestic Diva Tip #1

"Last weekend, I burned some food onto the bottom of a frying pan and couldn't scrub away the dark stain no matter how hard I tried. Remembering a tip I once read, I dampened the pan, sprinkled it with baking soda and let it sit overnight. To my complete amazement and delight, the spot came off the next morning with practically no scrubbing." (Unfortunately, you can't use this trick on aluminun pans.)

What's Cookin'?


Rebekah Teel

Crescent Roll dough (it now comes as a flat sheet also)

Cooked and chopped chicken breasts

Cream cheese

Green onion (optional)

Shredded Cheddar (or other cheese)

All the amounts are to your taste. If you like it cheesy add more,

if you want less meat do that, it’s very forgiving.

Combine everything except the dough and mix thoroughly.

Press the dough flat and cut into triangles or squares.

Spoon filling in, fold up edges, and pinch closed.

Cook at temp on the package until golden.
