The King’s Chicken Pesto Sandwich

Hello, from Hershey, Pennsylvania! Land of Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, Kisses, and the Milton S. Hershey Medical Center. I am currently in my first week as a visiting student at the Penn State-affiliated hospital. However, this is not my first time visiting “The Sweetest Place On Earth.” As a child, whenever we flew “back East” (as…

David’s Chicken Paprikash with The Rheinlander’s Spätzle

This is kind of a 2-for-1 recipe post. Chicken paprikash is another dish that David introduced to me early in our relationship. It has quickly become one of my go-to recipes for its ease and amazing flavor. As you might imagine, paprika is the main ingredient in this dish. Paprika originated in Central Mexico and…

Gnocchi with Roasted Red Pepper Sauce

So medical school got a little busy and while I was still cooking a lot and taking pictures of said cooking, I didn’t have time to write posts to share with you all. But, I’m back and ready to provide you with some more delicious recipes. I’m sure you’ve noticed that The King’s Kitchen Blog…

The King’s Chili Chicken Tacos

Tuesdays can be pretty crummy. It’s still the beginning of the week and you have a ways to go until Friday. However, Tuesday is redeemed when it is Taco Tuesday! I first started celebrating Taco Tuesdays when I was living in San Diego. I always looked forward to going to a different taco stand or…

Shrimp Scampi

So in my haste to get some of these posts out, I forgot to mention some vital news! Ok, it’s not really that vital, but for anyone else out there that is also a photography enthusiast, I got a new camera lens! The Nikon AF 50mm f/1.8D to be specific and it has taken some…

Shrimp Fra Diavolo

Back to the blog! School is crazy busy, so it doesn’t leave a lot of time to cook, take pictures and then write a post. I have been stockpiling a lot of pictures of different things that I make so that I can roll them out when I get a chance. So, I’m taking a…

The King’s Butter Chicken

While home from medical school for the holidays, I decided that I wanted to try a new recipe for the family to try. Toward the end of the last semester, some of my classmates and I went out for a night of Indian food, followed by ice cream made with liquid nitrogen. At the Indian…

Tikka Masala Meatballs

Medical school has kept me extremely busy! However, I’m still making time to cook regularly. The last few months have also been huge in making adjustments to my diet and exercise regimen. After losing 30 pounds, I’m back down to my ideal weight and am enjoying a healthy mixture of delicious food and exercise. I finally…

Nani’s Chinese Casserole

Another one of Nani’s standard casseroles from my childhood. Nani’s Chinese Hamburger Casserole was always a staple during our deer and elk hunting trips. Like any good casserole from the ’60’s, it gets its flavor from Campbell’s soup, specifically the Campbell’s Cream of Chicken Soup. It also works well, because it can easily be prepared ahead…

Reading Cheesesteaks

I learned a great deal of my cooking from my mom’s side of the family. However, we have learned a few things from my dad’s side as well. When I was younger, we didn’t get to see my paternal grandmother, Mom Mom, too often. She lived in Reading, PA, so travel was usually limited to…

Nani’s Mouthwatering Meatloaf

Meatloaf always reminds me of childhood dinners at Nani and Papa’s house. Mom was never a big fan of meatloaf, so if she ever worked late at the hospital or was out of town, Nani would usually have us over for meatloaf. This is a quick and easy dinner to make that is also delicious…

Chicken Stuffed Bell Peppers

Wow! Sorry to keep you all hanging for so long! It has been over a year since my last post. A lot has changed since then. I now have an amazing boyfriend who also enjoys cooking and has introduced me to several new recipes. I also recently moved from America’s Finest City. I am happy…
