One of the problems is time. I am lucky to have a little more time to prepare dinner several days a week than others I know, but even I have … Continue Reading →

Yummy! I found this recipe on Pinterest and it sounded good and tonight I finally gave it a try. I was surprised at how much it actually does taste like chicken parmesan! The recipe is simple enough and you can use shortcut items as much or as little as you like.
