Okay, I have to admit that I love baked parmesan pretzel chicken because it is healthy and the possibilities are endless! Add the chicken strips to a salad with croutons, and you have a healthy salad. You can serve it with pasta and tomato sauce, and you have a lovely Italian dish.
Also, you can serve the chicken strips along with your favorite dipping sauce and fries on the side.
For this dish, I used dairy-free parmesan cheese and gluten-free pretzels. But of course, you can use regular cheese and pretzels.
The back of our woods belongs to bears that hibernate and start poking around for food and adventure during the Spring. I wanted to set up some new trail cameras to catch some of the action. I gathered up my hiking equipment and had a fun yet, grueling two-hour hike through the woods behind our cabin. The trail was once a logging road…I’m guessing back in the 1800s. Now it is overgrown with trees and mountain laurel. It winds through steep rolling hills. I wore my sturdiest boots since snake season had just arrived. The woods are mature, but you can still see signs of an old farm including rusty strands of barbed wire and the remnants of a shed.
We researched and decided on the Visionner 4.0 WiFi 830 Trail Camera, though there are many other excellent trail cameras out there. The camera has a function that captures high-quality images and videos with night vision. The images can download directly to an app on your cellphone if you are within 60 feet of the camera.

The trees in this area are covered in a blanket of moss. It was challenging to find the right tree with the correct thickness to hold the cameras steady. Trail cameras need to wrap securely around the tree trunk with velcro straps. We encountered a small brown snake and an adorable ‘spiny lizard.’
Here is a delicious, tangy and sweet recipe for all the shrimp lovers out there. Honey Lemon Shrimp with Garlic can be served with any rice dish, salad, grits, or artisan bread. I use white rice for this shrimp dish so the rich flavors can permeate the entire dish.

Saute for 1-2 mins. until the shrimps turn slightly brown.
Add honey, lemon, chili powder, salt and pepper.
Stir frequently until the shrimps are opaque and the honey lemon sauce thickens.
Add parsley and serve immediately.
Also, here is my favorite movie scene about shrimp. 🍤
