Eggplant Parmesan

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 […]

Mother nature is just killing me! After 10 days of rain and dreary weather, we had a day and a half of sunshine. It was nice but today mother nature is in a bad mood again. All I can think about is the 90 degree weather and sunshine  I am going to get soon in Florida […]

I grew up eating a lot of fish. My dad was from an island in Croatia so it was not uncommon for him to be grilling whole fish, eyeballs still intact and all. While my friends got to eat fish sticks at their houses, none of that was to be found at mine. Fish sticks […]

Simple Roasted Brussels Sprouts

March 21, 2016

While Brussels sprouts seem more like a fall or winter vegetable, I love eating them all year round. 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.

It’s time to get saucy and make some shrimp and zoodles! What are zoodles may you ask?

Actually, it’s tastes very good but you know exactly what I mean. Instead of a sweets recipe today, I need […]

Gone are the days where I make boxed mac and cheese. I have nothing against making food from a box but I am glad my son realized there is a world outside of “the box “.  My daughter has been a homemade mac and cheese lover for a long time. As a matter of fact, […]
