I sometimes make this dish for company. It’s easy, delicious, not expensive and an elegant crowd pleaser. This peasant fall of the bone chicken lets you enjoy your guests while it slowly cooks and fills the house with a great aroma. Continue reading
This week Linda and I will be sharing two great salads to help you get healthy for summer! I love a good pasta salad – especially when entertaining – because it’s simple, inexpensive and goes a long way. The great thing about this salad is there is only a little pasta and a lot of rough greens but when you add them to the hot pasta, they soften a little and soak up the vinaigrette. You can add chicken and make it the main coarse. Any way you serve it – it’s a healthy addition to the menu! Continue reading
Baking your fries is so much healthier than frying them…and if you’re going to pile them high with Mexican beef and cheese it only helps to bake the fries!!! This was an indulgent lunch, but one I will not soon forget! Forgive me for sending you to two separate blogs of mine for the total finished product, but I promise it is worth the visits. I had the beef left over and I just wanted to have it this way! Great for game night too!
This was a dish I used to make for my kids when they were hungry teenagers. I will admit that I used to buy my pita bread but it is so easy to make and it’s so much better than the store bought ones that now I make my own, (well sort of, I could make my own pizza dough, but this time I didn’t).
I’ve had versions of this dish in restaurants, but it’s the kind of dish that if you can’t find it and you want it you have to make it. Dipping lobster in butter is one thing, plucking it out of butter and cheese is a whole other experience! If you get the chance, give it a go… It’s worth it! Continue reading
Wow, wow, wow!!! So much flavor, so creamy and so easy. The end result tastes like a creamer version of Chicken Cordon Blue. Continue reading
My son just loves chicken wings!!! As a typical teenager he is always hungry too! So today I made his favorite wings, my favorite wings and a new one for us to try. I always buy the Organic Free Range wings because I know where they are coming from. Once the cheapest part of the chicken it is now the most expensive part…go figure! Baked to perfection and not fried, these little bites are a real treat for game days or for an after school snack. Continue reading
I was watching a travel show about Asian dumplings when I had an epiphany… Make tortellini stuffed with the shrimp and serve it with my scampi sauce!!! Well you know when you think it, you have to make it. For lunch today my Hubby and I were in heaven with this rendition of this classic dish. Continue reading
Another lunch for the office and another big hit! I love that you can make this in advance and serve it at room temperature with a salad…my kind of lunch. My eldest son happened to be visiting and now says I have to make it every time he visits. Yikes!!! Continue reading
