Step into my parlor, if you dare. Continue Reading

This One is About the Sauce! Casserole Chicken with Onions and Olives

I started out to make a chicken dish that one of my aunt’s made when I was a child. I sort of recalled it was alternating layers of chicken and onions cooked in vinegar. I didn’t quite achieve the goal, but I stumbled on a killer sauce. Continue Reading

An Eggplant and Chicken Parmigiana Combo

This is a somewhat lighter, lower calorie version of eggplant parmigiana in that it’s not egged, breaded or fried.  And if you can’t choose between the iconic eggplant- or -chicken parmigiana, why not combine them?  Continue Reading

So Good, Worth Repeating: Turkey Thighs with Pumpkin Stuffing Under the Skin!
