Parmesan Zucchini and Corn

Hi everyone.
It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood and there is a good recipe to be had by all.
This recipe is by far one of the best I have had in a long time.
I love corn, love it!
Then there is zucchini, this is one of those veggies mom made you eat when you were younger and you hated it. But as you got older, it became delicious!
Well this recipe has both and let me tell you, it is so good, I would eat it every day!!!


2 tablespoons olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
4 zucchinis, diced
1 cup corn kernels, frozen, canned or roasted
1/4 teaspoon dried basil
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
Juice of 1 lime
2 tablespoons grated Parmesan, or more, to taste
  • Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add garlic to the skillet, and cook, stirring frequently, until fragrant, about 1 minute.
  • Add zucchini, corn, basil, and oregano. Cook, stirring occasionally, until zucchini is tender and cooked through, about 3-4 minutes; season with salt and pepper, to taste. Stir in lime juice.
  • Serve immediately, sprinkled with Parmesan.

Enjoy this dish, I promise you will love it.

Baked Sour Cream Chicken

Baked Sour Cream Chicken

Hi everyone.
The sunny weather has finally arrived here in Rochester, NY.
It took forever to get here.
It's still chilly at night, but that is ok with me, pretty soon it will be hot at night and my body doesn't like that.

So this chicken is delicious but I did make a few additions.

This is a recipe found on

  • 1 Pound of Chicken
  • 1 Teaspoon of Parsley
  • ¼ Cup of Parmesan Cheese
  • ¼ tsp Red Pepper Flakes
  • Pinch of Salt
  • ½ Cup of sour cream, mixed with a little mayo (mayo is an addition)
  • Panko bread crumbs (addition)
  1. Preheat oven to 350
  2. In a bowl combine - sour cream, mayo, parsley, Parmesan cheese, red pepper flakes and salt
  3. Using a kitchen brush - brush the sour cream/mayo mixture all over the chicken - place chicken in a casserole dish
  4. Sprinkle Panko bread crumbs on top of the chicken, to your liking.
  5. Bake for 35 minutes or till cooked ( 20 minutes if you are making chicken tenders)
  6. Enjoy!
Give it a try and let me know what you think. Really easy, throw in the oven recipe.
