Maybe it was due to my personality during … Continue reading

Chicken Scampi and a funny story

Last night my hubby had to work late so I wanted to make a dish that could be reheated easily and still taste good. I chose a dish that is very popular here in my home-chicken scampi. I don’t think this is a true, authentic version but it’s very good. And everyone here loves it.  … Continue reading
