Chicken Parmesan

Chicken parmesan is such a comporting Italian dish. You have the crispy breaded chicken, rich tomato sauce and then beautifully melted cheese. It’s so delicious. With that being said, I’ve never made it myself because of religious dietary restrictions. I eat chicken and cheese but not supposed to eat them together. However, over the past…

Veggie & Pesto Flatbreads

I got a great weekend recipe for you! These are delicious vegetable & pesto flatbreads. I used whole wheat pitas which were the perfect base for this. These would be good to serve to guests or just to have as a lunch for yourself. Don’t get me wrong, I love super cheesy pizza, but sometimes,…

Sheet-pan Salmon Dinner

Looking for an easy sheet-pan dinner? Here’s a delicious salmon and vegetable meal you can make on any weeknight. I used salmon for this meal but you could use chicken thighs or legs instead.

Argentinian Chicken Thighs

I eat a lot of chicken. It’s probably my most consumed protein source and I’ve eaten it so many different ways. Because of that, I’m always looking for new ways to cook/flavour it. I was at the store and I was looking at the seasoning mixes – down the Ethnic/Mexican aisle – and I happened…
