Rex’s mom Robyn tells us about her lasagna recipe:

For many years, my sons would come home from football practice with a huge appetite and often times, with friends in tow.  My hearty lasagna, paired with salad and garlic bread, was a household favorite that helped refuel their caloric needs!

The foundation of this recipe was brought over to the United States in the early 1900s when my grandmother, Emma Schwab, immigrated from Germany.  My mother has since added her flavor to the recipe and it serves as the centerpiece to all cookouts and Schwab family gatherings.

After a two year stint in the NFL with the Miami Dolphins, Baltimore Ravens, and Philadelphia Eagles, I decided it was time to leave the game of football behind. As the opportunity to play professionally was still an option, it was a personal decision to walk away from the game. After facing injury which required a spine surgery, I moved to California and began using my education earlier than anticipated.

Developing a youth development and team building company was my first endeavor, before taking a position at the historic Los Angeles Crenshaw High School as manager of the tutoring program. Now, making life better for people with disabilities, I have been working for an agency which does just that. OC Adult Achievement Center creates independence and confidence while developing the talents of the mentally and physically disabled population of Orange County.


Why I Chose This Recipe -Pancake-Batter Breaded Chicken Strips

This recipe was created by my father in an effort to make homemade chicken strips. This was a childhood memory from middle school that I never forgot! After realizing he didn't have any flour, my father decided the best alternative would be pancake mix.

The recipe worked out well and I never viewed chicken strips the same ever again! This recipe is a soft yet crunchy, hard yet fluffy, delightful treat which can be used as an appetizer, or main dish.
