Weekday Italian: Chicken Piccata and Roasted Asparagus

Chicken Piccata with Roasted Parmesan Asparagus

I grew up Italian. Sunday dinners always consisted of pasta with ‘gravy’ and meatballs. Sometimes Lasagne, Chicken Cacciatore and Chicken Piccata were the main event.  Home cooked Italian to me means home and love, so I try to cook my family some of my childhood favorites when I can.  Many people think a good italian meal […]

Semi-Homemade Chicken Fajitas for $10

$10 Chicken Fajitas in less than 20 minutes

We are big Mexican food lovers in this house, but we don’t always like paying the pricey restaurant tab at our local Mexican restaurant.  For the most part we always made our fajitas at home using the powder seasoning you find in the packets at the store.  But those had so much sodium and lacked […]
