Crispy Chicken Fingers

I am addicted to a few things I find it ok to be addicted to. First is Pinterest and Etsy. Love both sites, because both give me great ideas. I am also addicted to Twitter and all of my Twitter buddies. I can get addicted to Facebook sometimes for the games, but also love it for the great recipe post I see in my news feed. I love to cook! I love to make good memories with my family and I love to start new family traditions. Traditions help make memories. Memories help children grow. Good memories help them grow up right. This I have always been taught since I was a child and believe it to be very much true. Another thing I am addicted to is trying to find healthy alternatives to the unhealthy favorites in our diet. That way I can enjoy the goodies just as much. Well today on my daily Pinterest browsing I found a recipe for Crispy Chicken Fingers. Talk about looking yummy! See for yourself!!
