Your Go To Healthy Chicken Cutlet Recipe


In college I was busier than I am now. I had a job, class and an internship and I would literally be running out the door with no time to cook during the week. For an eater like me, this proposed a challenge. How do I eat quality healthy food on the go?! Also, me being hungry is not good for ANYONE.

This is when I came up with a weekly healthy chicken. I would make this chicken every Sunday and keep it in my fridge for salads, sandwiches or dinners on the go.  I have to say it was one of the best ideas I’ve ever had. This chicken has enough flavors that it isn’t bland and at the same time it doesn’t have an overpowering flavor that makes it difficult to pair other ingredients with it.

This is really the chicken that anyone can make and not mess up.  So for all of you who say “I can’t cook”, trust me, try making this and see for yourself that you CAN cook. (more…)

Braised Whiskey BBQ Short Ribs Recipe


Just thinking about this is making my tummy rumble with excitement. This is one of those things I make and could practically cry from pure love of the dish. It is SOOOOO GOOOD!!!!!

If you work full time, like me, this isn’t something you can make during the week (I know, sad) but it’s a great meal to make on Sunday when you’re hanging out at home because it will take 3-4 hours.

I think I’ve become somewhat of a short rib snob. I hate when you order them at a restaurant and they come out hard and dry. This is not what short ribs are about. Short ribs are slow cooked with juicy flavors and a buttery texture that will make you lick the plate clean. By cooking them slowly and on a low flame you’re allowing the juices to get soaked up in the meat and eventually the meat will be falling off the bone. Now that is a good short rib. (more…)

My First Attempt @ Pad Thai Recipe


Let me start by saying that I have been wanting  to make pad Thai for about 6 months now, but I kept getting scared to try something that I love so much. I was convinced it was going to come out bad and ruin my taste for wanting to cook Thai food. Boy was I wrong!

It actually came out really really tasty! (more…)

3 Meat Meatball


I love Italian food, I mean who doesn’t? Cooking Italian is always great to me and consists of cheese, something I happen to have a love hate relationship with. I tend to make turkey meatballs because they are healthier than the classic meat ones, but I just couldn’t help myself. I was craving a good meatball and I wanted to change it up a bit. Meatballs are a great thing to serve when you have a  group of  people over because it’s always a crowd pleaser and you rarely have to worry about food preferences, unless they are vegetarian or cheese haters- they just shouldn’t come for meatball night.

Peachy Orange BBQ Chicken


When your typical BBQ meal becomes average to the same group of eaters, it’s time to think of something new. BBQ is just so easy when I’m in the mood to cook for others but would love to have it little less mess and the help of a BBQ master J

Usually when I’m grilling for more than just me and someone else I have someone on the grill manning the food so nothing burns, while I handle the kitchen duties.

What I LOVE about this chicken is that is has sweetness along with the little zing of the orange. It’s always great to have something you can grill that isn’t a burger or steak. It’s fun to surprise your guests who think they are coming over for a typical BBQ with something that will make their taste buds say “what’s this new bbq taste I’m experiencing here?”. (more…)

Buttermilk Panko Chicken


Panko (Japanese Breadcrumbs) is a great change-up to the classic Italian breadcrumb. Breaded chicken cutlets are my go to meal, because they never cease to please my eaters. Sometimes though as a cooker you want a little excitement  in your kitchen. When I’m looking to break away from the delicious classic that is breaded chicken cutlets, I’ll make something using panko as my base instead. (more…)

Fail Proof Tomato Sauce


When you serve something with homemade tomato sauce it immediately makes your eaters love the food that much more. Homemade sauce sounds impressive, but it can be really easy. Impressing with ease is always something a cook is looking to do. This sauce barely takes any time, involves a handful of ingredients, one handy dandy tool and is made in the OVEN! (more…)
