Welcome to Tried & True Recipes. A one stop for easy, elegant recipes you can make any day of the week. Whether you’re looking for vegetarian or plant-based recipes or you’re looking for a simple chicken dinner recipe, there’s probably something in the recipe box for you.

My name is Kylie Perrotti, and I’m passionate about creating simple recipes you can make any day of the week. I love helping readers take simple ingredients and use them in creative ways.

My recipes are food-first. You won’t hear too much about my life story before the recipe, but I will help you find ingredient substitutions, suggestions for increasing your efficiency in the kitchen, and methods for transforming the recipe to suit your personal tastes. There’s always a jump to recipe button, so if you’re ready to just start cooking and don’t want to hear me blab, just zoom on down to the recipe.

Don’t hesitate to reach out to me for questions about a recipe and please remember to rate the recipe and follow me on Instagram. Tag your favorite tried and true recipes for a chance to be featured on my feed!

An homage to my favorite Peruvian dinner recipes, this Peruvian chicken bowl with potatoes is a flavorful experience of contrasting textures.

This Peruvian chicken bowl takes a little while to prepare but fortunately, you will have some down time. While the chicken is marinating, prepare the potatoes. While the potatoes are par-boiling, prepare the avocado salsa. Roast the chicken and potatoes at the same time and prepare the rice at the same time.
