Chicken Parmigiana

Chicken Parmigiana Recipe

As you have probably noticed from our blog, the Herb family is very fond of Italian food. I think I could eat Italian food all day, every day! That’s exactly what I had the opportunity to do back in 2007 with Sister Spice and a small group from our college. It was our first international trip and actually my first time ever on an airplane. We had an amazing 3-week trip, visiting Tuscany and the Amalfi Coast. It was wonderful! The food was absolutely fabulous. I’m pretty sure I gained 5 pounds in those 3 weeks!

Saturday – Vacation is Soon!

This is in my near future! Well, something similar, anyway. Mr. Herb and I are going on a cruise at the end of next week!

Are you a pesto fan?  I had never had pesto until I was in college, and I fell in love with it! I’ve had lots of different types of pesto (with pine nuts, without pine nuts, etc) and I typically like it all.  This recipe, adapted from Lisa’s Dinnertime Dish, whips up an easy pesto on top of some chicken and whole wheat pasta for a quick and nutritious meal.

What did you have for Easter dessert? The Herb family enjoyed a Butterscotch Pie made by Sister Spice, as well as Nana Herb’s favorite dessert of all time – Lemon Lush!

Butterscotch Pie with Meringue

Confession:  I literally ate like almost half of the pie pictured above.  No joke.  Butterscotch pie is one of my favorite kind of pies, but this is by far the best recipe that exists.  If you’re from the South, you probably know a cute little old church lady named Pearl, right?  This is “Pearl’s” recipe from my Nana’s Methodist church cookbook, and I’m telling you, you’ll find yourself eating more than one slice!

Mr. Herb here. I’m usually the one photographing any of the recipes posted by Mrs. Herb, but with this particular recipe I actually did the cooking AND the photographing!

Saturday – Tax Day Edition!

Mr. and Mrs. Herb

Mrs. Herb here, and I AM EXCITED! Why, you ask?! Because this is the last Saturday of tax season! You see, when I’m not cooking, baking, and spending time with my wonderful husband and two kitties, I’m working my day job as a tax accountant. So of course, tax season ends this Monday, April 15th, and my life will reach a more slowed, summery pace. And THAT’S why I’m excited!
