STICKY TERIYAKI WINGS

STICKY TERIYAKI WINGS

Life has been fairly hectic thanks to a 8 month old and a 5 year old.  School is in session so it means homework, carpool lanes and everything in between.  One kid is off to school so for a few hours it’s just me and the baby – the rolling, bouncing, putting everything in mouth and super clingy baby.  I find myself looking for solutions to complete every task in less than regular time and that includes the time that...Read more …
CHICKEN FOOT SOUP

CHICKEN FOOT SOUP

When my husband asked for Chicken Foot Soup he was very specific – he wanted his mother’s soup.  I wasn’t offended, I’m a good cook but I know the connection between food and memories and nothing can compete with that.  He clearly had fond memories of his mom’s soup so I called her up and asked how she made her chicken foot soup.   I was glad that I decided to call her rather than make it on my own because...Read more …
FIVE-SPICE CHICKEN WINGS

FIVE-SPICE CHICKEN WINGS

I felt like I’ve lost the last week.  I’ve been sick and both of my sons have been sick.  You know how it goes- the preschooler brings homes a virus and it makes its way through the family.   We are all better now but all the things that I’ve had planned for the past week has been tossed to the side and I’m trying to play catch up this week.  First up are these five-spice chicken wings that I was...Read more …
ARROZ CON POLLO

ARROZ CON POLLO

   I’m always looking for new ways to cook the same old ingredients.  I have to admit that chicken and rice and two ingredients that are in heavy rotation around here and it can be challenging at times to find new ways to cook it.  I’ve always been intrigued with arroz con pollo (which is literally chicken with rice) and over the years have been tweaking this dish a bit to suit my liking.  Similar to paella, this dish is...Read more …

THE BEST TURKEY MEATLOAF

THE BEST TURKEY MEATLOAF

The name meatloaf is anything but exciting and leaves a lot to be desired and truth be told, I’ve had quite a few bad meatloaves in my lifetime.  You know – the dense, dry, compact meat product that resembles a brick more than something edible.  Well my meatloaf is anything but the aforementioned; it’s is moist, flavorful and packed with vegetables.  I add a medley of vegetables for 2 reasons, the first reason being that my son avoids eating vegetables,...Read more …
ONE POT PESTO PASTA

ONE POT PESTO PASTA

My son started Pre-K a little over a week ago and it’s been nothing but chaos.  Adjusting to a new sleep schedule, new school and entirely new routine has been a bit tolling on both of us.  As a result I’ve been slacking a bit in the kitchen – yes I know, this food blogger has been a bit off of her game.  Since I’m now up at the crack of dawn – 6 am to be exact, I’ve been...Read more …
ROAST DUCK

ROAST DUCK

Who else is excited that Christmas is around the corner?  This is my favorite time of year, and I’m sure it is for many of you too.  The next couple of weeks will be a cookie filled blur for me; it all goes by very quickly.   What I’m most excited about it the food!  I start planning my Christmas menu fairly early.  For the past couple of years I’ve always cooked a leg of lamb but this year I may...Read more …
HERB ROASTED CHICKEN AND GRAPES

HERB ROASTED CHICKEN AND GRAPES

Herb Roasted Chicken and Grapes is a nice alternative to turkey on Thanksgiving. It’s November so that means preparing for Thanksgiving.  I’m already thumbing through my favorite magazine for fresh ideas for our Thanksgiving meal.  I am don’t like turkey so I’ve been skipping it for the past couple of years and make either a whole chicken or Cornish hens.  I know I’m not the only one who doesn’t care for turkey.   One year, I deboned a turkey and stuffed...Read more …
ROASTED CHICKEN AND FINGERLING POTATOES

ROASTED CHICKEN AND FINGERLING POTATOES

I recently received a challenge from Bon Appetit to create a meal that costs under $10 using items exclusively from ALDI. I’ve heard of ALDI and have passed by one over the years but never ventured in so this was a new experience for me and I didn’t know what to expect. ALDI is a supermarket that prides itself on selling quality ingredients at low prices. Some of the ways that they keep the costs low by are having you...Read more …
