Slow Cooker Whole Roast Chicken

I’m sure this is common knowledge, but up until late last week, I had no idea that you could cook a whole chicken in the crock pot. It makes complete sense — if you can cook a whole roast, why not a chicken? — but somehow it never occurred to me that you could put … Continue reading

Sticky Honey Garlic Wings

I hope everyone had a great weekend! We had a very relaxing one, culminating in a laid-back Father’s Day dinner at home. It was exactly what we needed after a string of busy (fun, but hectic) weekends. Last week, I searched for a good entree to make for Father’s Day dinner. It had to be … Continue reading

Buttermilk Roast Chicken

This week, I made yet another winner from Smitten Kitchen — buttermilk roast chicken, adapted from Nigella Lawson’s original recipe. Seriously, I don’t think I’ve ever been disappointed by the many recipes I’ve used from that blog! This one’s going into my regular rotation. It’s a super easy, tasty way to prepare chicken. It requires … Continue reading

These chicken legs were a snap to prepare, made my house smell heavenly, and at only 295 servings … Continue reading

For the first time, I sent Jack to school today with a warm lunch. I know this is nothing new for veteran lunch packers, but it’s new territory for me! Even I have to make fun of myself for how excited I am. 😉 I made Japanese curry with chicken and vegetables for dinner the … Continue reading

Baked Sweet and Sour Chicken

I’ll admit it: I love sweet and sour chicken. As much as I cringe to think of standard takeout fare representing true Chinese food (which is wonderfully varied and embraces many different spices, flavors, meats, vegetables and cooking styles), it is also something I enjoy. Sometimes, I just get a hankering for a carton of … Continue reading

Japanese Curry with Chicken and Vegetables

Japanese curry with chicken and veggies If I had to eat the same entree at every dinner for the rest of my life, I think I would choose to have Japanese curry with rice. Japanese curry is milder and sweeter than most Indian curries (but still very flavorful), goes well over rice or noodles, is … Continue reading
