Initially, I bought the chicken thighs alongside a tray of drumsticks to make Oven Fried Chicken for a pool party over the weekend. But the weather turned out not so great.

Not an Italian kind but Armenian and surely not for vegetarians! … Continue reading A Kind of Pizza!
It is now rather chilly and cool where we are. So, I thought of making something warm, suitably served over the fall-wintery days after a meal to keep us feeling fuzzy!

I simply love mac & cheese but I also know that having that often is not so good. So, I found the following recipe ages ago and decided to make this last night. Having said that, I am not so sure if this is any healthier BUT it surely does not have 5 cups of cheese in my favorite mac & cheese recipe. This dish … Continue reading This Dish Is So Hearty!

I have just returned from my summer holiday and it has been awhile ago since I last met up with my friend, Andrea and her little girl, Ladina.

Since I had … Continue reading Whatever I had in stock!
