I have a new family of Cast Iron skillets that I am so excited to use! This was my first experiment: Chicken Parmesan. I started with Smitten Kitchen's Milanese recipe and went from there.

From the Cake Bible. I added crumbled brownie dirt to the recipe.

Scrimps! One of the best meals I've had: Basmati rice cooked with chicken stock and onion, shrimp steamed lightly on top, served with sliced tomatoes soaked in balsamic vinegar sprinkled with salt. I don't know why it was so delicious together, but it WAS.
