WINNING COMBO “EASY AND FUN TO MAKE” I liked how easy and fun this Cheesy Caprese Chicken (December 2018, p62) was to make, and with the tomato and cheese combination you just can’t go wrong! I would definitely make it again because it was a winner with my family and makes a great weeknight dinner. Katrina Lahood, via Instagram STACKS ON I made the delicious Cheesy Bacon and Zucchini Fritters (November 2018, p18) for hubby and I for Sunday brunch. The stack looked amazing and they were so tasty and very filling. Hubby was very happy he had leftovers for his lunch on Monday. Thanks Super Food Ideas for another great recipe.
