baked chicken parmesan

Last night, I made Baked Chicken Parmesan and Baked Zucchini Sticks from the website Gina’s WW Recipes. The chicken was delicious and moist! I’m putting this on my company-worthy list.

I found two quotes I like and perused my photos for something to describe them. “I can resist anything except temptation.” Oscar Wilde I took the candy picture last year at Easter time. I love those Snickers Eggs! :-} “Some day you will […]
