What’s for Dinner?

Bread alone? I could make a meal of it, but it isn’t what we’d have for dinner. Is it some sort of heady responsibility, being the one to decide what to have for dinner every night? It shouldn’t be. Still, I’ve been in such a funk with respect to deciding what to have for dinner. […]

Four+ New Recipes for the Files

I’ve made many recipes in the last few months. A few stick out as ones that I’d like to keep in my online memory. First is a recipe that I made for Rosh Hashanah, many moons ago. I was looking for an appetizer recipe that could be served with meat and was on the healthy […]

Lemon Bundt Cake

Published by under beef,cake,chicken,dinner,food,pork

It seems that I’ve been baking a lot lately. And, I’m not just baking. Really, I’m cooking too. Taking some pictures, not enough. I made Bahn Mi on Monday night using this recipe, but I replaced the pork with boneless, skinless chicken thighs, and we use avocado instead of pate (I’m not a liver lover). […]

Rolling Lettuce Chicken (Turkey)

Published by under chicken,turkey

I know when a meal is a hit when L & J, within the first few bites, ask, “Can we have this in our lunch boxes tomorrow?” Tonight’s dinner was one of those recipes that was right on target. I am not a particularly good or adventuresome cook when it comes to Asian style food. […]

Paprika Roast Chicken with Sweet Onion

And, to go with the apple tart on this cold, blustery summer evening: Paprika Roast Chicken with Sweet Onion. I was re-organizing my very full recipe folder and found this recipe from the February 2009 issue of Gourmet (sniff, sniff). I looked it up on and found that it was highly rated. Excellent. Quick. […]

Teriyaki Chicken

Published by under chicken,dinner,Uncategorized

Last night I made something that I have never made before, strangely enough: Teriyaki Chicken. I love it. I order it when I am not in the mood for sushi at a Japanese style restaurant. I even bought a Trader Joe’s frozen chicken teriyaki for the girls’ lunches (very good, I might add). I was […]

Monday Yuck, Tuesday Yum

Published by under chicken,dinner

Last Monday’s dinner – Orange Beef Str Fry – was, in a word, blah. The picture is way better than the taste of the dish. I’d had such hope for a recipe that was dog-eared long ago. L and S were generous and actually ate theirs. J was not so compliant and ate rice, then […]

Vietnamese Chicken Salad

Published by under chicken,dinner,food,salad,vegetables

Make this! Vietnamese Chicken Salad is delicious! No batteries while I was cooking or eating and thus, no photos of the delicious salad. But you need to have fish sauce – pictured above. This salad was reminiscent in flavor to Green Papaya Salad. But, without the effort of trying to find green papayas and shred […]

Medium Well

Published by under chicken,dinner,food,vegetables

Last time I checked, chicken was still supposed to be fully cooked when it was served. Juicy, but well done. Oops. Last night, mine came out medium-well. I had to boost the finished product with a little zap time in the microwave. Not the best solution, but if you have to give your medium-well chicken […]

Quinoa, Yes. Fennel, No. Matzo Toffee, Oh, Yes!

Well, having the kids taste everything has paid off. Last night, quinoa got the thumbs up! Shocking and satisfying. I was sure that when I said, “Come on, just one bite,” I’d get the pinched up face, the rolling eyes. But, instead, I got the nodding head. From both girls, no less. One more food […]
