Chicken Florentine is Scott’s favorite dish that I make, at home. I prefer using cooper sharp cheese, as it melts great and gives such a superb flavor to the chicken. Since it already has spinach in it, I just pair it with mashed potatoes or rice. And, the best part is that I make everything in one large frying pan!
Father’s Day is very special to me. I’m fortunate to have a dad that is (and always was) extraordinary, in every way! BUT…like most men, he’s not easy to shop for. So, I scoured the internet and found a bunch of ideas for this Father’s Day Gift Guide! One thing I believe most dads have in common is this: They don’t expect an expensive gift. So, most of these items are under $50 OR on sale!
There are certain foods that taste just as good, when baked over fried! Eggplant parmesan is one of those foods! Unlike lasagna (with the no-boil pasta option, now available), eggplant parmesan is definitely more time consuming. Especially if you choose to fry the eggplant, first. But, in my opinion, baked eggplant parmesan is the way to go. It’s healthier, easier and quicker to make.
Baked Eggplant Parmesan
Have you been watching my food demos on Instagram, yet? If not, you may not know what you’re missing. I try to do a step-by-step tutorial in cooking, at least twice each week! Anyway, I made this yesterday. One eggplant, about ten inches long, was enough to feed Scott and myself at least three dinners worth. What I’m trying to say is that eggplant goes FAR when you’re making eggplant parmesan. I’d suggest one per 3-4 eaters. (That’d be having not much, if anything, left over.)
First things first. Memorial Day is a day to remember all of those who have served (or are currently serving) our country! Don’t forget to wear your red, white, and blue to celebrate this wonderful holiday. Also, if you decide to take advantage of the Memorial Day Sales, I’ve rounded up some of my picks that are great steals. I know these sale weekends can be overwhelming. So, I tried to find the best of the best for you.
Recently, Scott was awarded a trip to the Secrets Resort, in Los Cabos, for being amongst the top ten percent Outside-Sales Reps, for Home Depot. Of course, I was thrilled to be invited and super proud of my hubby for his accomplishments. The Secrets resort, in Los Cabos, is a gorgeous resort with an intertwined gold course and breathtaking views. From the ocean and mountains, to palm trees and cactus! Talk about a great mix. Speaking of mix, I was excited to sport some of my favorite resort wear pieces mainly from Revolve, Amazon, Nordstrom, and Walmart. (I guess you can say that’s another great mix, right there!)
