Hello from the Hunt Kitchen!

I was told I have lots of good recipes and that I should start a recipe blog, so here ya go! My fondest memories of home were sitting around to the table each evening with my family to eat a good home-cooked meal and I desire to keep that tradition going in my own home. I work hard to make sure my family has a good and balanced meal each day. I have tried each of these recipes and give them my approval.

I'm going to post my weekly menus as well, so feel free to mooch if you like. I do all my grocery shopping on Saturdays, so I plan my menus from Saturday to Friday. Friday is always Pizza Day; Saturday is usually open to either leftovers or some sort of burger. Wednesdays are usually leftovers as well - most of the recipes make more than enough for dinner for our family of 5, so we always have food to eat on Wednesdays without having to fix something new.

Please leave your comments on any recipe you try - even if it didn't work out! Bon Appetit!!

Chicken Parmesan

1/4 cup plain dry bread crumbs
1 Tbs. grated Parmesan cheese
1 egg
2 chicken cutlets
1 tsp olive oil
1 cup thick tomato sauce
4 thin slices mozzeralla

Mix bread crumbs and parmesan cheese on a plate. In a shallow bowl, whisk egg with one teaspoon cold water. Coat each cutlet in egg mixture and then in bread crumbs. In a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, heat the oil. Brown chicken until golden brown, about 2 minutes a side. Pour tomato sauce over chicken in skillet. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer covered, occasionally spooning sauce over chicken, about 10 minutes. Arrange mozzerella over chicken; cooked covered, until cheese melts. Garnish with chopped fresh parsley, if desired.

Makes 2 servings.

Note: I love to serve this with fetticini alfredo (I just cook spaghetti noodles and mix them with bottled alfredo sauce). So good!! Also, you can use spaghetti sauce in place of the tomato sauce, if desired.
