This lemon chicken is the perfect one-pot meal! A slow braise means the chicken will fall off the bones; potatoes and carrots soaks up the bright, lemony sauce. It’s January and, just like that, a switch flipped. I never thought I’d see the day, but I’m sick of cookies (I give it about a […]
Nutty farro and crispy chicken thighs pair perfectly with sweet and spicy roast tomatoes. So good, the tomato-hater in your house might even ask for seconds! Are you ready to spice things up? For the next five days, I’ll be sharing some awesome new recipes that I created for the Tabasco 10 Ingredient Challenge. For […]
I feel like I’ve been posting an overabundance of desserts lately – that was definitely due to a very poorly planned editorial calendar for this month. I have a few more sweets planned for next week but I have some great savory recipes planned for early October. (And I promise, what I have in store for next week is definitely worth it!)
But for today, let’s eat soup. I took a quick facebook poll to see what people wanted me to post next and soup won by a landslide. I love that you all love soup as much as I do! This chicken tortilla soup is one of my new favorites. It’s rich, spicy, and super satisfying.
Can we get real with each other for a minute? As a food blogger, there’s this ridiculous pressure that every recipe has to be earth shatteringly wonderful. They have to be unique, creative, and easy enough that people will actually attempt making it themselves. The photos have to be gorgeous and there has to be […]
This salad has a surprise ingredient: pasta!
Pasta isn’t a salad ingredient that you typically see here in the northeast. The only other time I’ve seen it was when I was in Minnesota last spring, and from what I can tell it’s a midwest thing. I kind of love it though! It adds a nice chewy component to the salad and bulks it up to make it more filling – in fact, that one little bowl was more than enough for me for dinner.
Jerk seasoning is one of my secret weapons for nights that I want big flavor but don’t feel like spending a ton of time in the kitchen. With it’s bold combination of allspice, scotch bonnet peppers, and cinnamon perk up just about anything! Rub it on some pork chops and throw them on the grill or use it as a marinade for smoked jerk chicken thighs – it’s basically my favorite flavor of summer.
For these jerk chicken tacos, I poach chicken thighs in a citrusy jerk marinade before topping them off with pepper jack cheese and a pineapple-avocado salsa. The sweet salsa and creamy cheese balances out the heat of the chicken for a sweet and spicy taco that we love!
