Herb Grilled Chicken
  • Time: 4-6 hours (depending on marinade time)
  • Complexity: easy

Herb Grilled Chicken

I have to start off this recipe by saying OMG.  I had a sisters weekend to celebrate Michelle's 50th and our friends Dennis and Lisa offered to take us out on their boat for the day.  I made some amazing Herb Marinade from my garden and let the chicken sit for about 5 hours in the refrigerator.  

Glenn grilled them then I thinly sliced and made a large sandwich.  I cut them up into individual portions and everyone just loved them!  Hubby even ate the remaining sandwiches for lunch the next day!

Now to keep the chicken paleo you can enjoy grilled or over a salad or grill up vegetables (zucchini, eggplant and red onion).  That is what my sisters and I did with the left over chicken then I drizzled EVOO and balsamic.  Super delicious.

Go ahead and grill this today!

Here is the recipe to my Herbs and Garlic Marinade!

Enjoy xo

Herbs and Garlic Marinade

Herbs and Garlic Marinade

I love my herb gardens and sometimes they overgrow so we need to use them up.  I love to make pesto and it's easy to freeze in small containers.

I decided to make a marinade by using thyme, rosemary and basil with lots of garlic.  I made this yummy chicken and I am sure you can find so many ways to use this.  Go ahead and make it...

Homemade Ravioli with Pecorino and Truffle

In Germany we spend most of one day at a Farmer's Market.  It was also Oktoberfest so it was very busy and extremely amazing!  We defiantly ate our way through the market and even stopped for a few beers.  I brought home some truffle and knew it would go great with homemade raviolis.  

I like to combine semolina and AP flour for a delicate ravioli.  You can use all AP or even better us OO.

My raviolis are very easy to make and so much better than any store bought! The best part is the bragging rights!  Enjoy...

Homemade Ravioli with Ricotta Cheese and Spinach Filling

  • Complexity: medium

Homemade Ravioli with Ricotta Cheese and Spinach Filling

Since most of our diet is Paleo or Gluten Free. We do not suffer from Celiac but love how we feel eating this lifestyle. When I decide that pasta is on the menu then I go all the way and make it homemade. I love making my own pasta and ravioli's. I have the attachments for my kitchen aid and it works great. As a home chef it is all the equipment I need to make fresh pasta.

This is what I did to create this recipe. I happened to have fresh spinach in the house and decided to use it in the raviolis with ricotta cheese and I even added a little shredded mozzarella since I had about 1/2 cup left in the refrigerator.

I even have one of those cute ravioli to give ridges that made me happy! You can use a knife but I love having fun kitchen gadgets. Enjoy

Individual Beef Wellington

As you may know (if you follow my blog) that we just love to entertain.  I love making it easy for me so I don't have a big mess to clean and prep as mush in advance.  My dishes looked like I spent all day but they don't know but I took a nap before everyone arrived...  Enjoy

Note:If you want to make this dish Paleo just omit the puff pastry and serve the beef with mushroom and roast your favorite vegetables!  Also, if you sear your beef in a really hot pan for just a few minutes to get that nice crust.  Set aside and bake for 15 at 400 and it will be perfect medium rare!

Italian Baked Eggs

My nana and I loved making Italian baked eggs on the weekends. We loved making everyone their own special serving to enjoy. My grandfather always had a very large garden and we would send him to pick fresh tomatoes for us! There is nothing better than a fresh fresh picked tomato! We would use whatever herbs we had handy.

 Nana and I would add green scallions to ours and diced onions to my grandfathers. Everyone had his or her special request.

This little Italian bruschetta appetizer is always a favorite. Sometimes I like to create a bruschetta bar with selections of Italian meats, olives, cheeses or a traditional tomato and basil. You can be extremely creative and everyone will love to bite into these crispy toasts with yummy toppings!

I love to use plum tomatoes for this bruschetta. First of all they remind me of my grandmother and they are hearty and can sit for a while in olive oil and still stay firm and tasty!

Italian Chicken Pot Pie

I hear from a lot of my friends that when they make an entire pot pie (in a pie pan), a lot of it goes to waste. Let’s make individual chicken pot pies. It is so easy!
Prepare these the night before, then when you get home from work, just preheat the oven while you’re getting settled in. Put them in the oven, and in 30 minutes you have a great dinner!
This is also a great recipe if you made a whole chicken the night before and want to use the leftovers.

This traditional recipe from my family is also a perfect Paleo Recipe or Gluten Free if you are following a health diet!

Luckily we have the best seafood market around. If you are in the Hartford area go over and say hello to my friends at City Fish Market in Wethersfield. You will only receive fresh fish and the service is outstanding! Ask for Tully and he will cut the perfect piece of fish just for you…

Italian Eggs baked in a Tomato

In the summer, either from my garden or from the farmers market, i just love the large fresh tomatoes. This is a great brunch to share with your family and friends. Not to mention it makes you look fancy!

Here is my little secret; when my husband travels for business I make this for dinner and enjoy every bite. Sometimes I add in leftover salmon or other vegetables from a past meal.

*CHEFS NOTE* If you are pairing this for Sunday brunch, you can whisk the eggs and other ingredients together the night before and store in a sealed container. You can prepare your tomato and keep in the refrigerator on a platter, lightly seasoned with salt and covered lightly with a clear wrap. When you are ready to bake, just assemble, place in the oven until done and serve

Italian Filled Braciole

  • Complexity: easy

Italian Filled Braciole

Braciole is a popular Italian dish. Using flank steak works the best as it becomes very tender after slow cooking all day.  You can roll the meat with your favorite filling.  I had frozen kale handy along with the other ingredients.  I picked up the flank steak at Joseph's Classic Market.  

Enjoy this Italian specialty!  

PS  If you don't have kitchen twine at home just ask your butcher! They will be more than happy to provide some for you.
