Closet Cooking has a recipe for BBQ Chicken with Blue Cheese Slaw Wraps. They look really good and it would be a great way to use up leftover chicken. Here is the recipe for Blue Cheese Cole Slaw and BBQ Sauce.

Cookie Madness has a recipe for Bran Muffins that has been scaled down in size to make 8 muffins. It has lots of spices, buttermilk, white whole wheat pastry flour and molasses, so it has lots of fiber and is a healthier choice for a muffin.

Cookin' Canuck has a recipe for Quinoa with Black Beans, Corn, Chipotle Pepper with a Lime and Honey Dressing. This is low fat and vegetarian with plenty of protein. If you like to cook and eat quinoa, you will find several more quinoa recipes listed underneath this one that sound really good.

"Ditch the box and never look back brownies!" Isn't that a great name for Brownies? I couldn't resist putting this recipe here. Thanks to Cooking During Stolen Moments.

This Spicy Sesame Noodles with Roasted Chicken looks like a perfect weeknight dinner. Thanks to For the Love of Cooking.

I found this recipe for Berry Chicken Salad on Taste of Home's post on Facebook. When I saw goat cheese, I knew I had to try it! They also have a link on this page for Berry Chicken Salad for two!

This article is from the New York Times, dated May 16, 2010, regarding Food Allergies. This is what caught my eye, "Just because someone shows sensitivity to a certain food allergen does not mean that person will have an allergic reaction to eating that food." With the increase in food allergies, if you are concerned, this is worth reading.

I was recently reading about Sunspire Natural Chocolate, found their website and ended up buying a few things from them, chocolate of course! I bought some of their chocolate chips for baking, so I am interested to see if their products are as good as the reviews I read.

I couldn't resist these instructions for Bacon Making. This was posted on Facebook by Taste of Home.

How about Homemade Deodorant? This was posted by a friend on Facebook. It looks really interesting. I just might give it a try if I ever run out of things to do.

The following information from Simple Bites shows how to Make Homemade Jam in 30 minutes with no special equipment!

I couldn't resist posting these amazing Miniature Foods created by a French artist. It makes my eyes, neck and back hurt just looking at them. I'm afraid that I would never have the patience to create art that small.

101 Cookbooks posted a recipe for Baked Donuts. This is a recipe you can make the night before and bake them fresh in the morning for a special breakfast/brunch.

If you like Chick-fil-A, you can get one of their new Spicy Chicken Sandwicheg5es between May 31 and June 5th. The catch is that you need to make a reservation starting on May 24th. If you have a Chick-fil-A in your area, you should check this out and reserve your sandwich. This sandwich won't be on their menu until June 7th.

These Baked Creamy Chicken Taquitos from Our Best Bites sound good. The filling can be made ahead. Serve it with salsa and guacamole and you have a fairly easy appetizer or healthier snack.
