This Thai chicken buddha bowl makes a great weeknight dinner. Or you can grill the chicken ahead and serve it cold. Makes a great lunch. The spicy miso grilled chicken adds a bit of Korean spice to the mix. The bright Thai flavours from the sauce bring it all together. It’s well balanced. Sweet, salty, spicy, sour. All the southeast Asian flavours are represented. It’s just tasty.
Fettuccine with andouille creole cream sauce. Big cajun flavour. Sometimes you just don’t have time to cook. 20 minutes to get dinner on the table. It doesn’t have to suck. Restaurants cook your dinner quickly. You can too.

Skillet chicken with mozzarella and tomato. It’s a recipe mash up. Roast chicken meets pizza Margherita. It’s not on a menu anywhere but it should be. It’s that good. Chicken. Tomato. Cheese. What’s not to love?
