Mexican Chicken Soup

This is a fantastic, easy chicken tortilla soup. I added zucchini and also added a squeeze of lime juice at the end. You can make it better for you by omitting the tortilla strips and cheese.

Chicken Picatta

I love this recipe. It is the best chicken piccata I have found. I just add 1/2 cup of white wine before the broth and deglaze the pan for a couple of minutes. Other than that, I follow the recipe.

Shrimp Fra Diavolo

This is such a good recipe. I added a bit more red pepper for some heat. You just cook shrimp in a pan, and set aside, then sauté onions. Then, add wine, canned diced tomatoes and garlic and simmer, then add shrimp, and season. Sooooo easy and soooo good!

I made this recipe w/ steamed cauliflower for a low carb side. It was sooo good. I steamed the cauliflower then added the cream, butter, cream cheese, dill, horseradish, salt and pepper. I didn't measure, just added all of the yummy goodness. Then, I pureed it w/ an immersion blender. Delicious!

Simple, spicy, delicious creamed spinach. A perfect side dish.

Really good. I did not put the potatoes back in the skins, but instead just baked them in a dish, and put cheese and bacon on top. I doubled the butter and sour cream. Soooooo yummy! I am from Texas and thought they were a little too spicy for the general public. Next time, I'll use one jalapeño.

Lamb Chops with Salsa Verde

Really good. You mix up a herb olive oil mixture that you add to grilled lamb. I made it in 20 minutes. It was different and very tasty. Definitely recommend!
