There is something about the weather getting warmer that makes me want to cook vegetarian meals. I could eat these eggplant Parmesan rounds once a week. It doesn’t even bother me that I have to turn my oven on. It’s much better than frying on the stove and also so much healthier. Make sure to […]

I’ve noticed lately that they are on plenty of restaurant menus and are all the rage in food magazines. A few weeks ago we even ordered them off a happy hour menu.

I play this game every night at about 5 pm.  It’s called “Let’s see what mom can defrost, prepare and cook in twenty minutes.” There are rules to […]
