Chicken with Tomatoes and fresh Mozzarella

I shop at my farmer's market as often as possible to buy fruits and vegetables. It's the perfect season to eat fresh tomatoes in appetizer, in salad or cooked.

It's a quick and delicious recipe.  My whole family enjoyed this meal :)  La Fourmi Elé a French cooking blog inspired me for this recipe. Simply make sure that the chicken is cooked....

Love Risotto? This traditional Italian risotto is really easy and quick to prepare. This Risotto makes a perfect dinner. My 16 year old son loves it!

Stromboli is my family favorite dinner. I always made it with my 13 y old daughter. It's a perfect meal  that I cook almost every week! You can choose whatever you want to garnish it, ground beef and green or red bell peper, salami and roasted green pepper, ground beef and pepperoni, ham and spinach. It's a good way to finish the leftovers. You can add sliced provolone, grated Parmigiano-Reggiano, mozarella or cheddar cheese... Which ever cheese you prefer. If you've never made a stromboli, you can try it. It's... [Lire la suite]

Baked Chicken in Creamy Tomato Sauce

I just picked up this cookbook : Dinner a Love Story by Jenny Rosenstrach. I couldn't stop reading it. I love this cookbook! I enjoyed discovering her story and her recipes. She has a lot of good ideas for Dinner, even if you do not have enough time to cook! Her Baked Chicken in Creamy Tomato Sauce is so good. I couldn't believe it that I needed 3 tablespoons of mascarapone to make this wonderful recipe. I now understand what is the Creamy Tomato sauce. I have never cooked with mascarpone, it was my first time. I just used mascarpone... [Lire la suite]
