Watermelon Caprese Salad

This is summer in a bowl. I love caprese. If you’re not familiar with it, it’s a mozzarella, tomato and basil salad. The combo is a classic and is so delicious. However, I’m giving it a little twist today and adding watermelon to the mix. Yup, watermelon, which is another favorite of mine to enjoy in the summer. The sweetness from the watermelon is a wonderful contrast to the savory mozzarella cheese and tomatoes. I have to say that it’s important it be fresh mozzarella for the right texture. If you want a little variety you could try strawberries either …

Tiropita – Greek Cheese Pie

This is the easiest and quickest Greek recipe I’ve made so far. You know, for a Greek recipe. If you asked 10 people how to make cheese pie (or tiropita), I bet you’d get 10 different answers.  I’m sure most, if not all, would be delicious in their own way.  I’ve eaten of variety of them. Since I’m Greek, I suppose that’s to be expected. If you’ve never had it before or don’t know what it is, it’s a savory Greek cheese pie where the filling is a cheese mixture, mostly made of feta cheese. I had never made my …

Chicken Burrito Bowls with Avocado Salsa

If you’re looking for an easy and quick dinner idea then I’ve got your back. Let’s face it, we’re probably always looking for quick dinners. While I can never beat the time it takes to make a bowl of cereal (not that there is anything wrong with that), you can whip up this chicken dinner pretty quickly. And any leftovers taste great the next day, which makes for an even quicker meal (and may actual tie with the timing of a cereal dinner). The chicken and avocado salsa are the stars of this dish. The chicken is seasoned with chili …

Quinoa Salad

What makes the perfect salad? My husband says it definitely doesn’t involve quinoa. Before I answer the question that everyone wants to know the answer to (yes, I’m being dramatic), I’d like to say that it feels good to be back to blogging. I took a few unintentional weeks off because life got in the way. Work was busy. For those of you who don’t know, I am a full time attorney at a corporation. I was feeling uninspired to find or create new recipes worth sharing here. Plus, I felt my usual winter time blues. Something had to give …

Sheet Pan Garlic Parmesan Chicken and Potatoes

I’ve got a quick and easy chicken dinner recipe for you. Bonus, it all cooks on one pan. This chicken is a little different than the ones I’ve been sharing lately. This has a crunchy parmesan and herby coating. It’s so yummy. Let’s not forget those potato wedges, which are also covered in parmesan cheese and herbs. I added some steamed broccoli because I’m trying to be a good monkey and have vegetables with every meal. This honey mustard aioli was a last minute addition to the party, but boy I’m glad I did. As with many dips, it really …
