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 epicurious.com 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 […]

Tuesday Dinner

Published by under chicken,dinner,food,vegetables

I used to have a subscription to Everyday Food magazine, which is published by Martha Stewart. The recipes are really accessible and usually very easy. I stopped getting the magazine because I have so many issues and recipes that I’ve never tried, that I figured I should stick with the copies I have before getting […]

S-A-T-U-R-D-A-Y Night!

Published by under chicken,food

I’m dating myself. And, in reminiscing about the song “Saturday Night”, I decided to see if it was on You Tube. Which, of course, it was, in multiple versions. Here is the link to that ultra big hit . Were the Bay City Roller hotties actually wearing capri pants back in 1976? Maybe that is […]
