On Bruschetta Chicken

Can I just say, after now being in my house for 2 full months, it is SUCH a treat to have the kitchen to myself again. To mess up a little bit here and there (like for this recipe, I made an entire box of orzo pasta when only 1/4 of it would have sufficed…still…

Hello Readers! Man oh man, this month is flying by and I’m so very excited that soon we will be moving into our home! March 26th is the move in date, and as a result, I’ve had to put cookie baking on a back burner until we’re all moved in and unpacked. However, April will…

On Enchilada Divorciadas & Instant Pot Shredded Chicken

Since I finally figured out the shredded Mexican chicken recipe with the awesome red sauce, of course, I felt the need to do a rendition of Enchiladas Divorciadas – aka. the best of both worlds if you can’t decide on red or green enchiladas, but I blended it this time and really loved the silky…

On Quick Chicken Makhani (Butter Chicken)

There is a place in Chicago near my office called India House…now, I absolutely LOVE this place beyond words because they have a Chicken Makhani (aka. Creamy Butter Chicken) that is to die for.

On Turkey Greek Meatballs

On Spanish Paella !!!

I have been dying to try Paella for a few months now, but because it was so hot this summer, it was hard to get the motivation to try it out. However, with the weather turning cold, I wanted to make something quick, easy, and filling and decided to try out a new recipe! Plus,…

On Shredded Mexican Chicken

If you know me, or want to know anything about me, you should know that if I have to make a choice between beef tacos or shredded chicken tacos, I will ALWAYS choose chicken. Ever since I was little, back in the 90’s, and my mom would take me to Don Pablo’s and I tried…

On Cooking with Coworkers: Chicken & Veggie Coconut Curry

With everyone sheltering in place, one of the directors in our department at my day job suggested we do a weekly cooking class together, and it has become a highlight of my week! The first week, we made a really quick and easy tomato pasta dish—which you can find the recipe for on my Instagram,…

On Lemon Rice & Chicken Soup (Avgolemono Soup)

There is a place in Evanston that my in-laws particularly enjoy going to called Cross-Rhodes, which is a great little hole in the wall Greek joint that has some AMAZING gyro’s, but my mother-in-law will always, and I do mean always, order a bowl of their Lemon Chicken Soup. And I gotta say, their soup…
