easy {weeknight} cooking

you lovely readers know that i love to cook.
i love to bake, i love to eat,
i love it all.

unfortunately, my new, hectic schedule leaves little time
for playing and experimenting in the kitchen.
so, i have tried to come up with quick, creative takes
on some of our favorite simple dinners.

spinach and brie stuffed chicken:
*you could really use any cheese you wish; mozzarella, parmesan, ricotta

i drained a package of frozen spinach,
mixed in my cheese of choice,
and added a dash of bread crumbs to help it stick.

cut a pocket into a thick chicken breast using a paring knife,
and stuff away!
bake at 375 for about 20-25 minutes
or until done.

pseudo-eggplant parmesan:
*i used a mix of eggplant and zucchini since my eggplant was small

cut the eggplant in to large strips,
and roast in the oven at 350 for about 15 minutes.

remove and top with:
chunky marinara sauce
pesto (if you wish)
thick strips of fresh mozzarella
sprinkle of parmesan

roast again at 350 for about another 15 minutes,
remove, cool, and enjoy!
