Simple Breaded Chicken

.     This meal is a childhood favorite of mine.  I can still remember helping my mom dip the chicken into the egg and flour. Back then we flattened the chicken and cooked it in butter.  I now choose olive oil and skip the flattening unless the chicken is really thick. What You Need: […]


Ham and Broccoli Mac and Cheese

.   Mac and cheese is one of my all time favorites.  Jalapeño and Bacon Mac, Buffalo Chicken Mac, Kielbasa and Smoked Gouda are just a few of my favorites.  This version is a great way to use up that leftover Easter ham. I mean there are only so many ham sandwiches that a person […]

Side Dish

Roasted Broccoli

.   Broccoli is such a great side dish for so many meals.  I usually try and make enough so there are leftovers that I can use with my eggs in the morning. What You Need: 1 Head of Broccoli Garlic Salt Olive Oil Pepper What To Do: Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.  Cut […]

Dinner, Side Dish

Oven Roasted Vegetables

.   Oven roasted vegetables are a great, healthy way to add vegetables to any meal.  The different combinations are limitless.  My only suggestions is to place vegetables with the same cooking time together on the tray. The zucchini finished in 15 minutes. They could have stayed in the oven the whole time but they […]


Butternut Squash

. Butternut squash is an easy vegetable to prepare , not to mention it is delicious. I served this squash with green beans and mushrooms. Another easy dish to throw together. Simple toss the veggies with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Throw them in the oven and you have another great side […]


Spicy Olive Crostini

.   The other day we had surprise guests.  I ran into the kitchen to see what I could serve with the lovely bottle of wine that they had brought.  Luckily, I had some left over toasts on had. I whipped up these olive crostini in minutes and they were a hit! I used a […]


Chicken and Artichokes with Orzo

.   One of the best meals I ever had was chicken with artichokes at this great little Italian restaurant in town. Then one day, they changed chefs and shortly after that they closed.  I have dreamt of that meal for years.  I have read about and made, many  versions of this meal but to […]


Parmesan Halibut

.     This is a really delicious fish dish that comes together very quickly. What You Need: 4-6 oz. Halibut Fillets Salt and Pepper Lemon Juice 1/4 Cup Butter 1/4 Cup Mayo 1/2 Cup Parmesan Cheese 4-6 Garlic Cloves A Dash of Tabasco   What To Do: Preheat  oven to 450 degrees. Place the […]


Cajun Salmon

      This recipe works well with any type of fish.  The cooking times will depend on the thickness of the fish.  If you choose to use a fish that is less flavorful than salmon, I would suggest using a little less seasoning. What You Need: 6 – 6oz Salmon 1 Tablespoon Salt 3 Tablespoons […]


Pork Chops and Vegetables

    This is a great way to cook pork.  If you have never brined anything before you really need to try this.  I promise the pork will not be salty.  The brine tenderized and helps keep the pork juicy, even if you slightly overcook it.  Don’t brine meat this way!  It will be SALTY!!!  But, it […]


Thai Chicken

    This is a great chicken meal that is super easy to put together.   What You Need: 4 Chicken Thighs For the Marinade: 1/3 Cup Rice Wine Vinegar 1/4 Cup Soy Sauce 3 Tablespoons Honey 2 Tablespoons Sesame Oil 1 1/2 Tablespoons Chili Paste 10 Minced Garlic Cloves What To Do: Mix all […]
