Kobe Marinade for Chicken on the BBQ

This is absolutely one of our favorite marinades for chicken pieces when we are going to BBQ chicken. We BBQ chicken a lot in the summer & I like a BBQ sauce on the chicken but sometimes, I just want to switch it up a bit!

Schnitzel, Turkey, Chicken or Veal!

There are countless recipes for chicken schnitzel. The main difference I think is the seasoning that is used. I am going to just give you a simple recipe that you can change the seasonings to suit your own taste should you chose.

Vegetarian Burgers with Mushrooms & Black Beans

I saw this recipe on Bon Appetit, it is one of their BA’s Best. There are a lot of ingredients in this recipe & I had most of them at home. I did have to substitute some things. Full of vegetables & black beans, this burger is delicious & even a die-hard meat-eater would like…

Chicken Casserole Topped with Cauliflower

Greek Pasta Salad

I love pasta salad, but the problem is sometimes I find that the pasta is quite tasteless & worse for me is if it is undercooked…or overcooked I suppose!  I realize I don’t love the vegetables in there either…I am not being critical of other peoples pasta salads…I just wanted to make mine a bit different…

Chicken Cacciatore

My friend’s mom gave me a recipe for Chicken Cacciatore years ago. A wonderful cook & lovely woman, she has shared several recipes with me.  I have used her recipe as the inspiration for this one.

Apricot Chicken

There are variations of this recipe everywhere.  I make mine a little bit different then the other recipes I have seen ‘out there” & I think it is because when my sister Edith gave me this recipe, probably 36 years ago when I was first married, I misunderstood the directions!
