This is definitely a meal you can make on a busy weeknight. Cooking the chicken is what takes the longest, and you can get that done pretty quickly, especially if your chicken breasts are thin. I actually recommend that you buy thinly sliced boneless chicken breasts for this recipe, or if you don’t buy those, [...]
This is our drink of the summer. The boys LOVE it! It’s perfect on a hot summer afternoon. The only problem I have with it is it gives me the ice cream headache (scientifically known as sphenopalatine ganglioneuralgia) almost immediately. It’s crazy. Clearly I’m drinking it too quickly.
I use bottled lemon juice when I make it. [...]
I made these muffins for breakfast recently when we had a house full of guests. They disappeared in no time. Who can turn down a fresh, warm, lemon muffin other than one of my sons? I love anything lemon, and these muffins are no exception. The original recipe calls for poppy seeds, but I knew [...]
Are you looking for something new to make for breakfast? I always am. Are you a lemon fan? If so, these waffles are for you. They’re a nice change from your standard buttermilk waffles. The lemon and the ricotta give them a delicate flavor and a nice texture. I loved them. The kids? Not so [...]
This is my new favorite way to make cauliflower. I wouldn’t say it’s a summer dish because you have to heat your oven to 500 degrees F, which can make your kitchen warm in the summer heat, but it’s a perfect fall dish when the weather gets nippy.
Don’t be fooled by the directions, you do [...]
I love orangeade. I have always liked it more than lemonade. It reminds me of a trip that our family took to Florida when I was in third grade. I’m guessing that’s the first time I ever had it.
Orangeade is simply a mixture of freshly squeezed orange juice, water, sugar and a little lemon or [...]
In January/February, I always see a box of Meyer Lemons at Costco and I feel compelled to put them in my cart. I don’t ever have a recipe in mind when I see them, but I love citrus so much, that I always find something to do with them. This time it was gelato. This [...]
I made these for a school function the other day and I thought they were fantastic. I am a big citrus fan and the orange is really wonderful in these cupcakes. The fresh vanilla beans add some nice flavor as well. Every now and then it’s nice to make something other than a chocolate or [...]
These are a great dessert for a holiday table. I am told that they taste just like the cranberry bars that Starbucks sells at Christmas time. They are festive and they taste incredible.
Bars are a favorite of mine because you get a lot of bang for your buck. Bars are relatively easy to put together, [...]
I love finding good apple recipes in the fall. We take the boys apple picking once a year and end up with many more apples than we can eat. I always make several batches of this apple sauce, but we still have extra apples. If you’re in the same boat, and you don’t want to [...]
