So those few sentences I wrote above, ignore them. Well, maybe not ignore, but slightly disregard instead. My recipe for Baked Tarragon Chicken Salad was featured on, just not on the date I thought it would be. The email I was sent, stated it would be shared on 02/11/2015, which didn’t make sense to me because I didn’t even post the recipe until 02/20/2015. After contacting to verify the date, I was informed that my recipe had been shared on 02/24/2015, which means that I missed the entire thing. Sad face. I really need to check my email more often. I’m having a hard time keeping up with six separate email addresses. What happened to the good ol’ days when I only had one to worry about?  Now I have two work email addresses, my one personal email, which I have had since the very beginning of time, an iCloud email, my blog email, and of course Brenna’s email address. Yes, Brenna has her own email address, because she occasionally likes to send emails to her Grandma and a few of the friends that she “likes,” as well as needing one to have a Facebook account. Anyway, don’t let my recipe not being posted today stop you from checking out There’s sure to be something fun, new, and exciting to read.

    Glad it came out better this time around when you had all of the ingredients. So far it’s been my favorite too…I like that it’s not super heavy. I’ll let you know if I make any others that are up snuff!
