Chicken Piccata Meatballs

April 19, 2024

"A delicious new spin on a classic recipe.  Perfect for weeknights because it's so damn easy to make, especially if you purchase your meat pre-ground. I'm talking 40 minutes; tops.  But, you could also wow your guests at your next dinner party.  I'll never tell that you didn't have to work that hard.  "

White Clam Sauce

March 2, 2022

"This sauce is super easy and very satisfying.  There's lots of fresh flavor without overwhelming the delicate clams. "

Roasted Orange Chicken

January 22, 2022

"A one dish chicken extravaganza that's suitable for company and super easy, but you don't have to tell them that. "

Quick Vinaigrette

January 3, 2022

"I needed a simple vinaigrette to dress the greens, one that wouldn't upstage the chicken salad, so this is what I came up with.  The result was excellent.  Perfectly balanced and not too tart.  "

Mediterranean Shrimp with Lentils

December 1, 2020

"We can't travel to the Mediterranean right now, but we can still enjoy the flavors of the region.  "

Knife & Fork Burger

August 22, 2020

"Go ahead and have that burger, just skip the bun entirely.  But, it won't be the same, you say?  You are right.  It will be even better.  Trust me.  "

Chickpea Flatbreads

August 11, 2020

"A super easy gluten free bread that is a treat to make and eat.  This pairs very well with stews and salads but I especially love it with Indian food."

Mediterranean Chicken & Lentils

August 10, 2020

"I used to make this lentil and tomato sauce served over pasta.  It was delicious, but, thanks to the quarantine I need to loose about 25 pounds.  Bummer.  I've re-worked the recipe with an aim toward lean protein with lots of flavor.  The Middle Eastern seasonings are snappy and far from boring."

Athena’s Dream

August 10, 2020

"This herb filled vinaigrette is packed with the flavors of Greece.  With minimal effort you can create this delicious dressing that will boost any salad to the top of Mount Olympus. "

Grilled Pork & Peaches

July 14, 2020

"Hot Damn!  This is freakin good! I inhaled mine. I would have had seconds, if there were any. Next time I'll make more. A Lot More. "
