Welcome to the home of BIZZY people where cooking is fun, quick, easy and delicious. Over the years, my taste in food has changed, as have my recipes. This blog will chronicle the changes I continue to make, as I face challenges in healthier eating and in new methods of cooking.

It says, "thai" so I have to like the Thai Chicken San Choy Bau that we are making this week in our Donna Hay Wednesday group. It was a bit spicy and the chopped chicken was a nice change of pace. Kayte selected this recipe from On the Shelf on page 124. I tried it with the greens and it was very good and then I put it on spaghetti and it was spectacular. My toddler granddaughter even liked it. Must have been the hot sauce. I used romaine for the greens and I subbed in red pepper and added some Sirracha to spice it up to make up for the real chilis. Do check out the other cooks' dishes at our Wednesday with Donna Hay site.
Another week, another vegetable for our Power Food group, a bunch of women who strive for healthy eating with the most delicious dishes. Each blog is inspiration .

I am recovering from the Jewish holidays and I am not really back blogging but I did bake this cake from Donna Hay for my company. I took some chocolate nutty candy and put it in the food processor and dropped it in globs on top of the cake. I also added some caramel chips to the batter. I figured this would appeal more to the children than a plain cake. The "Wednesdays with Donna Hay" group baked this, this week and I am taking bets, they found it as easy as I did to make. Peggy selected this and it is from Off the Shelf. Thanks Peg. To see what the others did with this recipe, check out our page .
