I’m in Chicago this week for a conference staying at the Radisson Blu Aqua. It’s an absolutely wonderful hotel with top notch food and service. The conference has been held here for the past three years. The hotel staff knows us by name and caters to our every need. If you’re ever looking for a beautiful hotel in downtown Chicago, check out the Blu!
So while I’m here helping run this conference for work, I’ve been also working behind the scenes on my new website! I’ve officially migrated from Blogger over to WordPress with the help of two lovely ladies, Ellie Petrov, owner of Creative Geekery, and Janine Huldie, owner of J9 Designs and Confessions of a Mommyaholic. I could have NEVER done it without the two of them! Janine seamlessly moved my blog over to WordPress in a matter of a few days – it would have probably been even quicker if I wasn’t so preoccupied this week and out of town! She responded to my emails day and night and never laughed once at all of the silly questions I had. I’m pretty certain she received no less than a few hundred emails from me.
Regardless, I love my new site and I hope you do, too! I would love feedback from my readers on the design and on future content they would like to see from Bitz & Giggles. It’s so funny how once you get on WordPress you just feel more “official.” Between the conference and my website this week has already been a bit exhausting. It’s a good thing I have someone else to cook for me this week!
Although I’m loving the lovely prepared meals and perfect desserts, at the end of the week, when I return home, I’m just going to want some good ole’ home cookin’ like these Italian Parmesan Chicken breasts.
This recipe transforms chicken breast halves into something wonderful, very simply. The chicken is dressed with garlic powder, Italian dressing mix and Parmesan cheese then baked in the oven for about 30 minutes. The flavorful and crispy coating surrounds a moist, tender piece of chicken that just about melts in your mouth. So easy, so quick – SOOOO what I’m going to need when I return home.
