Chicken with Shallots

What do you do at your house when the smoke detectors go off when you’re cooking? I seem to have a lot of experience with this, setting them off twice in the last week alone. When they go off around here it is somewhat comical to watch. I run around and open a bunch of […]

Crockpot Chicken Enchilada Soup

What’s wrong with this picture? Nothing technical this time – and I admit it is a bit subtle to the casual observer – but something is definitely missing. To understand I need to back up a step… The weather has turned cooler and it seemed a good time to make a nice pot of soup. […]

Chicken with Raspberry Mustard

Dinner the other night was pretty simple – chicken tenders coated in cornmeal and lightly fried, served with a tomato & basil salad and some steamed broccoli.The star of the meal was the raspberry mustard that went with the chicken.

The recipe calls for 4 cups […]

Changes in Latitudes

For dinner last night we went south* to Latin America to have a meal of empanadas, served along side a dish of quinoa with cilantro, lime and green chilies.  Funny story how I got to this particular meal… I had been thinking about the blog and how song lyrics somehow find their way into many […]

Hummus-Crusted Chicken

A number of months ago, back when I was trying to find a way to make a healthy fried chicken dinner, I came across a variant that coated the chicken in hummus.  I didn’t make it back then, but filed the idea away in my head for later.  When I opened the refrigerator door yesterday […]
