Lobster Rolls

 

Lobster Rolls are one of my favorite things to eat while on the east coast. It’s heaven in a bun. The lobster roll was originated at a restaurant named Perry's, in Milford, Connecticut, as early as 1929.

Oven-Fried Chicken

Fried chicken is a mess to make. After watching an episode of the Barefoot Contessa, I decided to try it. It’s called Oven Fried Chicken, which you fry in the beginning and then finish it in the oven. It’s not nearly as messy as the full fried version. It's crispy and moist and goes really well with mashed potatoes.

Super Easy Mac & Cheese

Super Easy Mac & Cheese is perfect to get your kids involved in dinner. One of the things I am passionate about is getting kids interested in cooking. Over the years, I have taught many kids how to make simple meals. They can learn math skills, practice fine-motor coordination, make choices about nutrition, and practice basic cooking techniques. They can learn about different countries and traditions by making foods from around the world. It's also a great way to get families together in the kitchen. If you get kids cooking at an early age, chances are they will continue this good habit as they grow. I happen to collect Macaroni & Cheese recipes. I ran across this one and thought it would be perfect for kids to make. Just make sure you are there to help or supervise the pasta boiling part!

This Smashed Pea & Barley Soup is my friend's favorite soup from the California Pizza Kitchen. I found the recipe and made it. I really don't like pea soup in general, but this one was very good. It's completely vegetarian as well!
