Holy Cow...I Can Cook?

I started this food blog New Years 2010 to force myself to get in the kitchen and teach myself how to cook. Well it has been a year, and it turns out, cooking isn't so hard after all. I kept the promise I made to myself and cooked healthy yummy meals for my family all year. Once I just got in there, read the recipes, and experimented I found cooking is yet another form of artistic expression. Just like with my art, I let go of the fear of failure and found a new passion.

Chicken and Artichoke Salad

This salad can go on top of English muffins (as pictured) or on top of mixed greens, in a wrap or spread on whole wheat bread. The pecans add a nice crunchy, nutty flavor.

1 can artichokes (chopped)
1/4 cup pecans (toasted & chopped)
1/2 cup fat-free cream cheese (softened)
1 tbsp lemon juice
3 tbsp light mayo
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp ground red pepper
2 cups chicken breast (cooked & shredded)

1. Combine chopped artichokes and chopped pecans in a small bowl.
2. Combine cream cheese, lemon, mayo, salt, and red pepper in large bowl, stir until smooth. Stir in artichoke mixture and shredded chicken.

*Make a batch of this and keep in the fridge for a quick lunch or light dinner! Super easy and really yummy!
