Instant Pot Chicken, Mushroom, and Rice

On the eve of a new decade I sit here celebrating that which closes and the many ways that it will leave indelible marks on all to come.  I’ve never been a fan of ‘top ten’ lists – and always find creative ways to avoid that topic when it comes up at dinner parties, but at […]

Crock Pot Chicken and Lentil Stew

A few weeks ago my blog turned 4! Four whole years of teaching myself to cook and building my confidence in the kitchen. Over the course of almost 200 recipes I’ve built a battery of weeknight dishes, learned how to prepare healthy lunches for the week, experimented with the instant pot, and become more and […]

Chicken Cacciatore

I feel so lucky to have friends that love to come over and cook with me. Well, since L was born it’s been more like “for me” but hey, that’s what good friends are for! My friend Ellen came over recently and suggested we cook up one of her family’s favorite dishes – chicken cacciatore. […]

Chicken Piccata

Chicken piccata is one of those comfort food dishes that tastes best after a long, hard day.  Thank goodness Dad and I had plans to cook piccata together because after this wild day I was in need of some comfort! When I rolled over on Thursday morning and saw 9:00am blinking on the clock I […]

A few weekends ago we had the most amazing shower on the sunniest summer day. Our backyard was filled our family and […]

Honey Mustard Chicken Thighs with Roasted Brussels Sprouts over Farro

Growing up I proudly professed the unique fact that my parents, brother, and I all had birthdays that fell on holidays.  Each year I celebrate my birthday on July 4th, my brother was born on Mother’s day, and my father’s birthday occasionally lands on Thanksgiving.  As this story came up at dinner parties my mother […]

Instant Pot BBQ Chicken Sliders

Well, it’s a good thing we’ve been keeping a ‘just in case’ house fund because we just gave a large percentage of that over to a plumber.  Of course this is coming right after my post last week where I was fantasizing about finally redecorating our living room.   This clearly meant that it was time […]
