Irene's Birthday Party

Birthday Party!

With my stepmother’s birthday coming back around, she requested the same dishes that I made for her 60th birthday a few years ago.

Lemon Chicken

Greek Lemon Chicken and Potatoes

The recipe made a ton! Really good, probably would add more lemon next time. ( I like things super lemony!)

Another Blue Apron night. Sunchoke Kale Casserole with Mornay Sauce The servings so far have been bigger than expected. This casserole was easily 3 servings, same with the chicken enchiladas.

Chicken Enchiladas

Cheesy Chicken Enchiladas

Trying out Blue Apron! Glenn’s sister gifted us a week, this is Cheesy Chicken Enchiladas. I really liked the filling, but it was hard to roll them and keep them in the pan. It was also a lot of food! Not complaining really, but this was probably easily 3 portions, instead of the 2 it […]

Mushroom Lasagna

Creamy Vegan Mushroom Lasagna

I have a friend that’s allergic to dairy, so I’m always looking out for vegan recipes that sound like they’re really good. I also have friends and family that are vegetarian, so I can look to these recipes for when they’ll be at a party or get-together. This recipe sounded like a winner because of […]

Spiced Nuts a la Marcella

My step-father’s family Christmas wasn’t complete without these sweet little treats my step-father’s mother would spend hours toiling over. She’d make spiced nuts and walnut creams.
