Baked Eggplant

Eggplant is one of my favorite flavors as an adult, but certainly not as a child!  This recipe is so easy to make, and I prefer to not pan fry it, or heavily bread it. I also cut the breadcrumbs with Pecorino Romano cheese, or any sort of Parmesan cheese you have on hand.  This…

Peach Balsamic Chicken

If you are having guests over, this dish sounds like you have skills beyond the norm. In actuality, it is simple, quick, and tastes like summer on an Italian vineyard; absolutely bursting with ripe peach and tangy balsamic. Major bonus, if you are trying to eat clean, this is your meal!

Chicken & Peach Quesadilla

It is peach season!  These peaches need a little lime to help their flavor stand up to all that is going on in here.  If your peaches aren’t quite ripe yet, just add a bit of sugar, a teaspoon at a time. The less you cook the veggies the more flavor pop  they have!  Also…

Sweet Potato Gnocci

If you have Peanut Allergies, this works fine…

This recipe is perfect for a busy mom! or a busy dad, or any busy person at all!!!  My daughters absolutely love macaroni and cheese, my son, not so much!  I throw together a side of this with a lot of meals I make. I really did not have a lot of exposure to mac…

Chicken Pot Pie

A little effort goes a long way here.  I use fresh veggies, because the flavors work so well together.  The trick, I have found, is to saute those veggies together with butter, garlic, and thyme before the rest of this meal gets put together.  I used to get all excited about making the crust from…

Sesame Chicken with Take Out Rice

Sesame chicken is exactly what I order for  Take-Out, every time!  I love the crunchy breading, the sweet dark sauce, and that little broccoli to justify it all.  This Version, is gluten-free, but still has a good bit of sugar in it. This recipe is fast and easy. If you don’t want to slice raw…
