Chicken Caesar Salad

written by: Don

This is a really simple and "quick and dirty" recipe. Most of the recipes I came across for the dressing inculdes an egg, or just the egg yolk, but they never turned out to be what I was really looking for. This recipe here is without eggs and definitely my favourite caesar salad dressing.

Spaghetti Vongole

written by: Don

This is my absolute favourite pasta dish. I almost always order this when dining out at an Italian restaurant, but it is just as easily made at home.
