My husband Kevin and I recently tried brussel sprouts for the first time on Christmas day. The typical recipes from my family call for salt, pepper and olive oil - bake…

Crab & Pea Risotto (with secret ingredient)

Crab & Pea Risotto (with secret ingredient) by Kimberly

On Father's Day I went out to dinner with mom, dad and husband. We visited a place called Touch of Venice in Cutchogue, NY. On the specials, it listed crab risotto (with peas, and a light tomato sauce) so you know I had to order it. It was so darn good, I couldn't wait to get home and try my own version in the upcoming weeks. I knew I…

Double Dippin' Cutlets

Double Dippin' Cutlets by Kimberly

It's always told to never double dip, but in this case it is a must! No one loves chicken cutlets more than my husband. It is the first meal I have ever cooked for him, and still today, it is number 1 "go to" meal. Kevin mentioned wanting to try a double dipped version of my thin chicken cutlets. This allows for a thicker, crunchier,…
