On Mediterranean Chicken (Cooking with Alex)

HAPPY TUESDAY!!! I hope that everyone had a love Labor Day weekend!! I know I spent part of it with mon Tuggers (we went to a corgi brunch on Sunday, which was DELIGHTFUL) and spent a good portion of it with Franklin just enjoying a slow weekend of relaxing (plus the new Tony Hawk for…

On Mini Big Macs

Once again, on a weekend where rain is pouring down, our need for fast food without the risk of exposure came upon us again. And while, yes, a normal burger would be just fine, the hubby was craving a Big Mac, and I was looking to avoid overeating, so we compromised and made them MINI!!!…

On Salmon & Soba Noodles

Similar to last week’s post, this recipe was inspired by some of the additional filets that we took home from our Charter excursion in Buffalo! The recipe that was used for the base was incredibly boring to say the least (which is why I’m going to refrain from mentioning it by name because that’s not…

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: Lobster & Green Pea Risotto

Welcome back to another edition of Cooking with Coworkers! This week, as I mentioned last week, was a risotto dish that I adjusted for the tastes of my familia (salmon is not a fave for most). But that’s the beautiful thing about risotto isn’t it? It’s basically a blank canvas once you get the foundation…

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…

On Prosciutto Wrapped Stuffed Chicken

Hi all, I hope you’re all doing well and staying safe! These are definitely weird, hard, and crazy times that constantly remind me how important it is to find moments of comfort, moments of family no matter how close or far they are. At the beginning of this month, I braced the quarantine and drove…

On Cilantro Lime Shrimp

Dear Readers, Let’s just say I’m starting to finally come up for air. It’s been a busy couple of months, but now, with a couple large events almost behind me, I can start to resurface and spend a little more time on writing something more than, “New Recipe! Enjoy!” That’s not really helpful to those…

On Chicken Satay & Cucumber Salads

I finally had a weekend to myself and I thought, why don’t I go ahead and make something different? Lo and behold, I had been hankering for some chicken satay, and happened to have a FANTASTIC recipe for chicken satay by one of my go to’s: Recipe Tin Eats! I have been eyeing her recipe…
