Chicken & Wild Rice Soup

In spite of my optimism for spring, Mother Nature is apparently not ready to give up on winter. It’s cold today, with a biting wind. So maybe no Buttermilk Chicken Salad just yet. What to do, then, with the Easy Homemade Poultry Seasoning you made this week? Well, do I have some comfort food for…

Silvery Sheet Pan Supper

Silvery? I know! It’s an unusual name for a supper, isn’t it? I was so in the mood for a sheet pan dinner that night (it had been a long day, & my neck was acting up), but I wanted something a little different. I’d seen & impulse-bought some cute little Brussels sprouts & a nice…

Spiced Peanut Sheet Pan Chicken Supper

It’s Sheet Pan Supper season!  As much as I love Summer, I always enjoy the change of seasons. I’m sorry to see the warmth go, but I love crisp Fall & Winter days almost as much. And of course, there’s always food to go with each season. This yummy sheet pan supper that I made last…

Northwoods Beer Can Chicken

I love chicken. There are so many different ways to cook it, from simple to fancy and everything in between. It’s tasty on its own or can take on a million different flavors. In the winter, I love a good roast chicken with smashed potatoes & brown gravy. (Stay tuned, I just might share that…

Tandoori Grilled Chicken with Mint Raita

I do have a few dishes, though, that are completely worth planning ahead. This time, I “planned ahead” by accident. I usually marinate my Tandoori Grilled Chicken for just a few hours but decided to put it…

Buttermilk Chicken Salad

Some years ago, my friend Linda & I went on a quilt shop hop. We ended up in Woodstock around lunchtime and were delighted to discover that the shop was serving chicken salad wraps for lunch. They received so many compliments that they included the recipe in their next newsletter. In fact, the chicken salad…

Smoky Grilled Rosemary-Balsamic Chicken With Green Beans & Kamut 

  Sublime! The smoky flavors of the plank & cheese meld perfectly with the rosemary and balsamic. It does require a little advance prep, but it’s so worth it! Ten to fifteen minutes to whip up the marinade in the morning, and an hour to cook the kamut before dinner. While it’s cooking, there’s plenty…

Lemony Basil Chicken With Basil Aioli

This is one of my favorite recipes, just for the sheer joy of the flavor. It’s also my go-to recipe for when I have a lot of fresh basil I need to use up, and I’m not in the mood for pesto. The flavors in the chicken meld so wonderfully, you could almost do without…
