Herb Baked Chicken

Its been a while, and I've only cooked very little since my last real post. You know how life gets, with the end of the summer rush and wedding planning I can't keep up. My sisters bought me my spice rack for my bridal shower last weekend, and I was dying to make use out of it. I got this spice rack:

So for dinner tonight, I made:

Herb Baked Chicken

2 chicken breasts, defrosted and with the skin dried
1/3 cup olive or canola oil
Lemon Juice (2 fresh lemons or about 1/2 cup juice)
1 tsp thyme
1 tsp parsley
1 tbsp fresh minced garlic

  1. Sprinkle each chicken breast with salt and pepper to taste.
  2. Combine oil through garlic and marinate chicken in mix for 30 minutes (or more).
  3. Bake at 375 for 30 minutes.
  4. Serve with a side, I used Kashi Rice Pilaf, but I recommend the potatoes from

And for desert: Chocolate Chip Cookies and Milk!

OK, so besides cooking, I also love makeup. This is my new favorite product! If you're a little daring with eyemakeup, I highly recommend it. You'll need a few good brushes to use it well.

Shells Florentine

So yeah, I have been super busy. I haven't made many 'new' things over the last few weeks. I made some killer tacos, but you've seen those already.

Tonight I made one of my favorites.

Shells Florentine!
1 15 oz package of ricotta cheese
1/2 cup mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup romano cheese
Appx. 6oz fresh spinach, remove stem and wash well
Italian Seasoning
Salt, Pepper
1 egg

1/2 box jumbo shells

1 jar pasta sauce, or homemade pasta sauce
Cooking spray

  1. Mix the top set of ingredients together (all the cheese) and set aside.
  2. Boil the shells according to the directions on the box, they should be cooked but very al dente to work well.
  3. In an 11x17" baking dish coated with cooking spray, put 1c pasta sauce in the bottom of the dish.
  4. Fill each shell with the cheese mix, line up in the baking dish.
  5. Pour remaining pasta sauce over shells. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes or until warmed all the way though.
  6. Serve with a little extra sauce on top, with a veggie and bread of your choice! ENJOY!
