I had thawed chicken thighs and legs and I had a ton of zucchini. The challenge was to figure out a recipe that used both (and wasn’t boring). After scouring the web, I found a couple of recipes, but didn’t like bits of either. I wasn’t too sure about rosemary and mustard together in a

Another winner from the Smitten Kitchen, but this time from the cookbook, not online. Like Deb’s spouse, my husband also doesn’t care for fruit with his meats, but since her hubby loved it, I thought I’d give it a try. William’s verdict – home run! I made lemony roasted parsnips to go with the chicken.

My heritage is German, so I grew up eating a lot of pork. Germans love to use cabbage and apples in their cooking. This recipe doesn’t have cabbage, but it does have apples. And, while it’s roasting in the oven, your mouth will surely water from the smells coming from your kitchen! The pork is

While making out this week’s menu, I stumbled upon a recipe for chicken curry from Trinadad. I love curry, Indian & Thai, but hadn’t tried any from another country, so I added it to my menu. I screwed up and didn’t allow the chicken to marinade as long as I should have, plus I should

I just bought half a hog from a local farmer and one of the cuts I requested was pork belly. This is one of the most succulent cuts of a pig and very hard to find unless you special order it. I had never prepared it, but have eaten it at a local restaurant called

Breakfast is the hardest meal for me. I’m lazy about cooking anything early in the morning, which means I often don’t eat much, making it that much harder to lose weight. This morning, I decided to try making a tofu scramble since I can’t tolerate eggs. It never really sounded appealing to me, but since
