Chicken and Farro Soup

Soup season is officially upon us, people! The weather lately has been decidedly dreary, with plenty of rain and wind and chilly temps. I knew when I got home today that it would be soup for dinner. A few days ago I posted an article on my Facebook page extolling the benefits of eating and […]

My Favorite Roast Chicken

There are as many recipes for a roasted chicken as there are cooks. And I bet all of us who roast chickens have tried several recipes. If you haven’t found that perfect one yet, well, here it is. What is it about a roasted chicken that makes us feel warm and cozy inside? Especially after […]

Weeknight Roasted Chicken

Who says you don’t have time to roast a chicken during the week? The secret is to flatten it out — spatchcocking — so it cooks faster, in just 30 to 45 minutes. You totally have time for this. And also, “spatchcock” is just so fun to say. I made a maple-mustard glaze for this […]

Chicken with Caramelized Onions and Honey

One of the reasons I wanted to start a blog was to force me to actually cook some recipes from all the cookbooks I have. In the Internet age, I all too often bookmark a recipe to try and ignore my huge bookshelf full of all sorts of cookbooks: slow-cooker recipes, cuisines from around the […]

Autumn Kabobs

I love grilling in the fall because it’s not too hot to hang around outside, and not too cold yet that you need to wear mittens while wielding tongs. Although today it was in the 80’s so I guess this doesn’t matter anyway, does it? The point is, October heatwave notwithstanding, the produce has turned […]

Mexican Lasagna

Or you could call this an enchilada casserole. I thought maybe this would be faster to make than regular rolled enchiladas. Well, I’ll be honest: It’s not. This was an all-day (and all-dishes) affair. It’s easy enough to make enchiladas using a jar of sauce and a package of tortillas from the store but you […]

Smoked Wings

Smoked chicken wings are hands down one of my most favorite recipes to make when we have friends over. They require minimum prep, zero babysitting, and they always impress. I’ve made these half a dozen times now and never had a failure, so I can assure you won’t either. I have never been a fan […]

Crock Pot Chicken and Mexican Cole Slaw

Just in time for Cinco de Mayo, one of my all-time favorite holidays. If you ask me, there isn’t much better than a taco. The endless combination of flavors is magic in my mouth. I love everything from a Mexican restaurant hard shell filled with cheese more than anything else, to the gentlest dollop of […]

Greek Chicken Pitas

I love this recipe. I love how it is a whole meal wrapped in bread. It is messy and garlicky¬†and finger-lickin’ good. It is finally warming up enough that I don’t have to wear a coat to stoke the grill. It stays light late enough that I don’t need my headlamp to check on the […]

Basics: Chicken Stock

Making your own chicken stock is incredibly easy. Now I am kicking myself for not making it for all these years. But in the last month I have made two batches, basically for free. And it is thick and rich and doesn’t contain any unneccessary additives. For example, the brand I used before contained “chicken […]
