Chicken and Broccoli Spaghetti

Chicken and Broccoli Spaghetti


Herb was never one of those kids that you had to force to eat his broccoli. For some wonderful reason, he actually really likes vegetables, especially BROCCOLI, which seems to be the nemesis of many children. So it was no surprise to me when he wanted to fix us this recipe, which is full of healthy broccoli! (Sister Spice would NOT eat this!)

Herb here. As you may know, Mrs. Herb and I both really like Mexican food.  I personally cannot EVER get enough guacamole! It is seriously my favorite food. Anyway, in search of another Mexican dish to make, we came across this burrito recipe and loved how adaptable it is and also very easy to make.

Crunchy Orange Chicken

If you haven’t noticed, we’ve been on a bit of an “orange” kick lately! It started with our Baked Coconut Shrimp with Orange Marmalade Dipping Sauce. Then we used some more orange marmalade to make the Orange Marmalade Cookies.

You may have read in my 20 questions post on Monday that I’m still slightly intimidated by seafood. We just never really fixed it at my house growing up, mainly because my mom and Sister Spice don’t really like fish, although they do enjoy shrimp and some seafood. Anyway, I have vowed to learn to make some good seafood and I thought I would start small – with frozen shrimp.

Chicken Parmigiana

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!

For Valentine’s Day, I decided to surprise Mr. Herb with a home-cooked candlelit dinner at home. We actually celebrated a couple of days before Valentine’s Day, because we left immediately after work on February 14th to spend the weekend in Charleston, stopping along the way to visit Mr. Herb’s wonderful sister and brother-in-law!

Pork Chops with Mushroom Gravy

Pork Chops with Mushroom Gravy Recipe


I, Mr. Herb, decided to make dinner one night for my better half and had a small dilemma.  I am not sure about you but sometimes I get tired of chicken every night.  So, for this recipe I turned to the pig – pork chops- that is!

I used to be intimidated by salmon. Or at least cooking salmon myself. I’m not sure why. Perhaps it was just fish in general that I was afraid of. We didn’t eat much fish in our house growing up.

Coconut Pecan Chicken

If you want a healthier alternative to fried chicken, or if you’re just looking for a way to jazz up your ho-hum baked chicken, then this recipe is for you. These yummy chicken tenders are baked, and the coconut pecan crust is crunchy and flavorful!
