I was a walking zombie when I was in my late 20s, 30s and early 40s. With finishing my doctorate degree, having kids, a home, family, tons of laundry, shuttling kids here and there, and starting my own business, I was time-starved and brain dead when it came to cooking. How much would I have LOVED to have been able to click on ‘Ally’s Kitchen’ website and get recipe ideas that would be healthy, easy, quick and not the same ol’ thing. Alas, back in the day when I was scrambling to keep my head above water with all these demands, there was not an Internet nor foodies who became our second brain, our food brain.
That’s why I love creating fabulously delicious recipes that use ingredients that you can find just about anywhere and cook something up in no time at all. This ‘Chicken in Onion Wine Sauce with Farm Vegetables’ is something that will fly out of the skillet when you serve it. And, if you have leftovers, it’s going to be better on day two. You’re going to have this dish in your oven in about 10 minutes. Then you just go about your merry way, do some laundry, answer emails, run and pick up the kids at tee ball practice, and when you come home, the house will smell like Grandma’s broken in and is hijacking your kitchen!
My kids now are in their 30s. They’re in the GenX and Millenial category. I hear their stories. Feel their pain of trying to eat healthy and find time to cook. That’s a big reason why I’m creating recipes with just a few ingredients that can be done by someone who knows nothing basically about cooking. All you need to do is following the instructions. And, I guarantee you even if you don’t do everything right, these recipes will be fabulous! Trust your instinct. They’re really no brainers. You’ll think you’re eating in a fine restaurant. You haven’t just fixed a box of mac n’ cheese, you’ve created a meal that’s worth of kudos!
