If I was the only one choosing...I would only buy chicken as the main protein for our meals...but, these boys around here aren't thrilled with that idea. So, to keep us all happy I do sometimes stay from chicken recipes - and thankfully I can turn to the Dishing It Up bloggers when I am in need of a new to me CHICKEN recipe. (Bwahahahahaa!)

In honor of Cinco de Mayo, these great chefs have put together enough great recipes to help you throw your own Fiesta. Translated, Cinco de Mayo literally means the fifth of May. Although many people believe that Cinco de Mayo is a Mexican Independence celebration day, it actually isn't. It's really a day of celebration for Mexican heritage and pride. Although your town may not have a large Hispanic population, there are more than 150 cities nationwide that host parades, dances, concerts, and other cultural events in honor of Cinco de Mayo.
Interested in bringing a little more of Cinco de Mayo into your home or classroom? Check out the many activities on the EnchantedLearning.com website. There are many free resources ready to print and use for your elementary age children. Want to learn a little Spanish for the fiesta? Check out the website MS Do created for her students to use when she was teaching Elementary Spanish classes. On MS Do's site, you will find TONS of Spanish activities ready for your family to use or enhance the own knowledge of the Spanish Language.
There are plenty of tasty recipes below to provide a full meal that will leave them coming back for more.

Into the crock-pot, on LOW for 6 hours:
- 1 white onion, chopped
- 2-3 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken thighs
- 1 TBS sesame oil
- 3/4 cup Hoisin sauce
- 1 TBS soy sauce
- 1 TBS honey
- 2 tsp rice vinegar
- 1/4 tsp ground ginger
- salt & pepper to taste
- fajita size flour tortillas, warm
- shredded napa cabbage (1/2 cup per person)

HINT: We couldn't find any napa cabbage so I used regular cabbage sliced very thin. Slivered almonds would be a good additional topping to these wraps, make sure you have extra Hoisin sauce on hand for dipping...enjoy!!

This week, these great chefs have put together a great list of Gluten Free Recipes to share with you. If you’ve looked for Gluten Free recipes, then quit looking, because is the place for you. At least half of these sites post Gluten Free recipes on a regular basis to meet their own dietary needs or those of their families.
Unfamiliar with Gluten or Gluten Free recipes? Gluten is a protein in many grains such as wheat, barley, and rye. While Gluten Free diets have become trendy, there is no real benefit to those without Celiac disease, gluten sensitivity, or intolerance. People can react differently from stomach issues to skin irritations when their bodies don’t tolerate gluten.
Many parents have reported success with a gluten free diet for their children with behavior disorders and special needs such as autism. The popular belief and research behind this success is that gluten may actually act as a poison within the body, leading to these problems.
Gluten free products are often expensive, especially packaged products. Another common complaint associated with gluten free products is the lack of variety and bland flavors. I’m sure that you will agree that there is nothing boring or bland with the variety of recipes provided by these fantastic cooks. Learn some tips, tricks, and possible ways to save when preparing gluten free dishes for yourself or others.
