Braised Moroccan Chicken with Saffron Rice

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jun 1, 2011 at 4:11pm

It is so ridiculously easy and delicious to braise a whole chicken that I do it almost every week, just to have on hand for last-minute meals. I’ve posted my recipe for chicken braised in coconut milk before, but not some of the other variations I play around with, so hopefully this post will round…

Chicken Piccata with Radish Ramp & Pea Shoot Salad

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on May 13, 2011 at 12:40pm

We all need to jazz up a chicken breast from time-to-time and this quick recipe, inspired by a Naomi Pomeroy recipe in the Wall Street Journal, does so nicely. I’m a big fan of crispy, buttery chicken skin, so I’ll often ask the butcher to take several breasts off the bone while I stroll around…

Tortilla Soup

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Mar 7, 2011 at 8:38am

Spring may be right around the corner, but I’m freezing right now. Brrr! I keep going out at night without stockings on, dying to wear something other than boots, hoping that because it’s now March, 20 degrees will feel more like 50 degrees. Not that 50 degrees is warm enough to go stockingless either, but…

Chicken Braised in Coconut Milk

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Feb 27, 2011 at 5:42pm

This recipe is a total cheat. It’s the same base as the Beef Braised in Coconut Milk I posted awhile back, with a whole chicken in the pot instead of a beef roast. I’ve been meaning to do this for ages – even last week I picked up a chicken and coconut milk. The store…

Whole Barbecued Chicken

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on May 20, 2010 at 6:32pm

I half ruined this whole barbecued chicken and it was still so provocatively delicious that John and I attacked it (and each other, get back!) like wolves. Snip, snap, gone. Wow, dudes, if you have not heeded my unpaid over-representation of the Weber poultry roaster (I have no relationship with Weber), heed it now. It…

Asian Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Apr 6, 2010 at 10:19am

Back from Seattle, although not back from the double-whammy sinus infection/bronchitis that hit me the day before we left. My son and I did our best to dig in and really experience the city, but given that I could hardly breathe, we didn’t get very far. Luckily we had a lovely hotel room at Inn…

Tandoori Chicken Skewers with Cucumber Raita

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Mar 24, 2010 at 6:13pm

Spring has sprung in Minnesota, at least for this week, lalalaaaa! Birds are singing, I’m singing, I’m grilling, birds are grilling, the sun is shining, and all is right in the world.                           The heat feels good, everywhere, even on my tongue. I…

(Almost) Chicken Parmigiana

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jan 20, 2010 at 7:40pm

And an almost-post about it. I bit off a bit more than I could chew this afternoon and attempted a multi-step dinner when I knew that I had to be out out the door by 4:45 pm (basketball practice, church run). I usually keep Wednesday night dinners extremely simple (due to basketball practice, church run), but…

Julie & Julia…

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Aug 8, 2009 at 6:16pm

…the movie. I was so excited to see it and let me say, I was not disappointed. Love, love, loved it. Was actually kind of weepy throughout, particularly during the Julia & Paul Child scenes. The food, the romance, the finding one’s passion, even the blogging and funnily enough, the tallness (Julia was 6’2″, I’m…

Grillin’, Chillin’ Part I

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on May 23, 2009 at 8:42am

From www.cookinglight.com I hope you’re relaxing right about now, enjoying the start of a long Memorial Day weekend.  It’s a weekend for griling, of course – I’m planning a little grilled tasty every day. First up, tonight, skewers of salmon and shrimp, marinated first in something citrus-y/garlicky, to serve alongside pasta (for the kids) and…
