Creamy Tuscan Chicken

Creamy Tuscan Chicken

Posted by Anthony on June 30, 2017 in Entree


Serves: 4

Time: 30 min

Difficulty: Easy

As mentioned in the recipe for Bacon Asparagus Pastry Twists, my family and I were hosting guests a few nights ago, and I was in the mood for some new recipes. I found a Three Course Tuscan Dinner article and decided to try my hand at the appetizer and main course. The appetizer was delicious, and this Creamy Tuscan Chicken was, in my humble opinion, even better. It is creamy and very flavorful, and paired wonderfully with whole wheat spaghetti with a side salad. If you’re looking for a new chicken/pasta recipe, I highly recommend this one. You won’t be disappointed!

Ratatouille with Garden Risotto

Ratatouille with Garden Risotto

Posted by Anthony on April 25, 2016 in Entree


Serves: 4-6

Time: 30 min (active); 45 min (inactive)

Difficulty: Medium

This past weekend, after seeing a post on Facebook for DIY: Create Remy’s Ratatouille, I was inspired to make myself some homemade Ratatouille, and because I’m a bit of a food and movie geek, I decided to pair it with a screening of the Pixar movie Ratatouille. Luckily, my wife indulged me in this potentially silly “Ratatouille Night”.

The dish itself is simple enough, consisting of baking sliced veggies along with some tomato sauce. To add a bit more substance to the meal, I decided to serve the Ratatouille atop my favorite homemade Garden Risotto recipe from Food Network’s Ellie Krieger. The end result was healthy, flavorful, and outright delicious — and a perfect pairing for watching the movie!

Sweet Potato Pizza

Difficulty: Medium

One of my favorite kinds of pizza is my Sweet Potato Pizza. It’s not your stereotypical pizza, as most Americans envision. It doesn’t use any marinara sauce, doesn’t have any of the standard toppings, yet is delightfully flavorful and unique in its own right. The sweetness of the cheese paired with the savory richness of the caramelized onion and oven-roasted sweet potatoes makes for an absolutely delicious end product that’s sure to please!

Pork Tenderloin Chop Suey

Pork Tenderloin Chop Suey

Serves: 6

Time: 45 min

Difficulty: Easy

Tonight, my parents were in town visiting after they hosted us for Thanksgiving, and my mom and I teamed up to tackle a new recipe for my 50 in 15 Challenge. And after listening to my dad’s Thanksgiving sermon on Wednesday night, in which he reminisced about his late mother who would’ve been 98 years old this Thanksgiving, I was inspired to make one of her famous dishes — Chop Suey. But there was a catch: No one has the actual recipe. She had it in her head, and just made it from memory. So up front, I knew there was no way to replicate it to give my dad a completely accurate representation of one of his favorite childhood meals. But after some recipe searching and brainstorming with my mom, we came up with a recipe that was at least darn close to what they remember from grandma. The end result was a delicious, healthy, and comforting dish. And more importantly, it got a thumbs-up from my dad, who was delighted with our nod to his mother.
