Springtime Grilled Chicken Bread Salad w...
There are certain recipes that have nearly cult followings online, and the Zuni Cafe Roast Chicken and Bread Salad is one of them.  I’ve never had it in person, but have heard so many people rave about it that I recently decided to put my own spin on it.  It seemed fitting — fresh, small...
Creamy Chicken Casserole with Leeks and ...
I remember researching my baby girl’s first car seat.  I had no clue what I was looking for.  I was focused on patterns that didn’t include teddy bears, perhaps longing for something that might actually match the car instead.  I didn’t know a five point harness from a three point...
Quick African Chicken Stew with Sweet Po...
For the fifth meal of the Cuizoo Arsenal, I was planning to do a hearty soup.  Because this time of year especially, it is a fantastic one pot meal for cold days.  I thought I’d do something with beans and maybe some sausage, because that is an almost weekly occurrence for us.  But after doing...
No Hangover Tequila Chicken Tacos with G...
Well, I guess I cannot entirely guarantee that you won’t have a hangover with these tacos.  If you are so inclined to drink the remaining tequila in the bottle after you make the marinade, then you are on your own.  And it is a lonely place to be — trust me.  The tequila hangover is something...
Muenster Chicken...
I’m not sure if you have noticed, but I have been posting far fewer dinner recipes lately.  And, trust me, it’s not for a lack of eating dinner.  The problem is purely technical — winter means it gets dark early, and because of that, the lighting sucks. You see, I am still in the...
Simple Herb Roasted Chicken...
Although we are eating less meat lately, it is impossible for me to say that a simple, whole roasted chicken is not a delicious thing.  First, when the meat is fresh and organic from your local farm, you will be astonished by how much better it tastes than its grocery store cousin.  Second, it can...
Paella...
Some of my best memories growing up are placed around the dinner table.  Beyond that, I will say that the wonderful ritual of food expanded my world in many directions.  There was no reason, in Pennsylvania in about 1980, that I should have been eating things like Moussaka or Paella, but I did.  We...
Chicken Apple Pot Pie with Cheddar Whole...
A farmer at our local market had “Sunday Dinner Chickens” the other day, so I bought one.  Of course, I fell right in line and cooked it on Sunday — because that’s what the marketing told me to do.  It was delicious and left us with a whole lot of leftover meat (he promised...
Rueben’s Barbecued Chicken...
My mom grew up in a very small town in Northern Pennsylvania.  And apparently there was this guy named Rueben who was responsible for all the chicken grilling at local events.  His famous marinade has graced our family’s chicken for as long as I can remember.  I remember tasting it before my...
Spicy Curry Chicken Salad...
So I should start this post by saying it was supposed to be Grilled Chicken and Roasted Potatoes.  But you see, my husband came home very late last night and our grilling was done in the dark — so I couldn’t take any pictures of the work in progress because my photography skills are definitely...
