I distinctly remember the first time I ate chicken pot pie. My sister’s best friend’s mother (thanks Jane!) dropped off some chicken pot pie and I fell in love with the comforting combo of warm bread, gooey chicken, and even … Continue reading
I made these on Saturday and they were finger lickin’ good. We wanted to have an early dinner because we were going to ride the Staten Island Ferry for fun (bucket list!). We ate this with some fresh corn and … Continue reading
Nice title, huh? This is a quick dinner I whipped up tonight that is really healthy and flavorful. I was inspired by a meal I had at Park Slope’s Thistle Hill Tavern. Check out their entree Duck Leg Confit. It … Continue reading
While my palate has evolved to the point one might consider “adventurous”, I still suffer from insecurity as a cook. There are certain kitchen tasks that have intimidated me, and that I’ve avoided at all costs. But no longer.
With Christmas vacation travels and Nikki’s wedding fast approaching, it had been sometime since I cooked a good meal in my tiny apartment. However, hubby and I are back to the grind and I realized it was time to get … Continue reading
When I’m feeling lazy I go to the store and buy a rotisserie chicken. Typically my laziness lasts several days and the chicken will last that too-how convenient!. Tonight I made this delicious panini from some leftover chicken.

Today I had salad.
I have really been inspired since eating at http://www.thistlehillbrooklyn.com/
Of course, I’m not a completely changed woman. I ate the salad with some chicken.

Another foot of snow is barreling towards us, and I once again retreat to my kitchen and my comfort food. Here is a quick and easy chicken parmesan recipe if you’re looking for a satisfying crowd pleaser. (I apologize for the horrible quality of these photographs, but it was a dark and gloomy night, and I don’t own a floodlight or yet possess excellent Photoshop abilities.)
I like chicken, but let’s face it, chicken can be kind of boring sometimes. It’s good for me, I especially appreciate the protein after a strenuous workout, but some nights…zzzzz.
Over the holiday my future in-laws got me this great book by Lisa Lamme. I found this recipe there and it was delicious! So much flavor and in just the right ways. Like Nikki says, “spice can be nice.”
