Reign in the kitchen

Much to everyone’s shock and surprise, my husband has held the bragging rights in our home for being a two-time CFCW Recipe of the Morning contest winner. But, alas, he now has to share that claim to fame with me, as I had yet another recipe featured on CFCW's morning show today.

We first sampled this gem at my sister's house in Florida earlier this year, and I've been salivating over it ever since. Enjoy!

July 25 - Salsa Chicken

Boneless, skinless chicken breasts (as many as you need)
Salsa (whatever kind you like)
1/2 cup brown sugar
Parmesan cheese

Place the chicken breasts in a baking pan and cover completely with salsa and brown sugar. Sprinkle the top with parmesan cheese and cover with tin foil. Bake at 350 covered for about 30 to 40 minutes until the chicken is done.

Winehouse silenced

It finally happened.

I remember reading a newspaper article back in the fall of 2007 about Amy Winehouse and the fact that someone had started accepting predictions as to when the troubled singer would die. Their unfortunately-named website -- -- was offering a free iPod to the person who correctly predicted the day of Winehouse’s death. It seemed like only a matter of time back then, simply because her lifestyle consisted mainly of drugs, alcohol, eating disorders, and domestic abuse.

Nearly four years after first reading about that site, it looks like someone has now won that coveted iPod.

Yes, Amy Winehouse was found dead in her London home today, and the saddest part of all is that we all saw it coming, though many of us figured it would have happened long ago.
