Herb Chicken Thigh Recipe

herbed-chicken-thigh-recipe

I make this roast chicken recipe all the time, but never really thought about posting it because I don’t really think of it as much of a recipe.  It’s one of the things I just throw together when I have some chicken thawed.  Then I went to BlogHer 11 and met a young woman looking for a way to change her life.  Somehow the topic of cooking chicken came up and I told her about these herb chicken thighs.

Tomato Basil Chicken Roulade Recipe

chicken-sundried-tomato-basil-recipe

Chicken roulade never fails to impress.  When it was roasting in the oven, Eric wandered the house saying, “Wow, it smells so good!”  Once you slice it into little spiraled coins of chicken and serve it, everyone says “Ooooh!” and thinks you spent hours on dinner.  But I’ll let you in on a secret, it takes just about fifteen minutes of prep work to create this impressive main dish!  I wish all fancy chicken recipes were this easy!

Greek Salad Pita Pocket Recipe

Greek-Salad-Sandwich

We eat a lot of sandwiches at our house.  Pretty much every lunch during the week is sandwiches, and sometimes we have them for dinner as well!  One of my favorite dinner sandwiches is a Greek Pita Pocket, so I was very excited to see it in my friend Susan Russo’s new book, The Encyclopedia of Sandwiches

Bruschetta Recipe and the South King County Latino Health Fair

On September 25 of this year I took on my biggest cooking challenge ever, so big that I lay awake for three nights wondering if I could pull it off as well as I thought I could or if I would sink like the Titanic.  The good news is, it was a huge success and cooking for 1500 was not as daunting as it sounds.

Pork Chop Recipe for Spaghetti

Leftover recipes! In my house that’s something there’s never enough of.  Eric doesn’t like eating leftovers, but if I turn them into another dish, he doesn’t know they’re leftovers, and I can save tons of money in our food budget by re-purposing leftover food.  I love making leftover pork chop recipes because pork chops are SO CHEAP!

Banh Mi Vietnamese Sandwich

Banh Mi Sandwich

I’ve had a lot of women ask me “how can I get my husband to eat Asian food?” or say “my son won’t eat Asian food!”.  Well here is the recipe you’ve been looking for.  First of all, don’t tell them it’s Banh Mi, or Asian, just call it a Steak Sandwich…say it with me now…STEAK SANDWICH.  What man or teenage boy wouldn’t flip head over heals for those two words?

Go try it, just say “Honey, would you like a steak sandwich for dinner?”  Love that reaction!

This tasty sandwich only takes a few minutes of prep and is so filling.  The recipe is from my friend Jaden’s brand new cookbook.  More about her, the cookbook, and her book tour in my next post…including a GIVEAWAY.

Italian Roast Acorn Squash

I had hoped to be posting my homemade Chinese plum sauce recipe today.  But alas, I’ve been sick all week and haven’t gone to work, where I can pick as many plums as I want.  But my plum sauce post is mostly ready to go, so hopefully I can have photos for it by the end of next week, because it’s so tasty!    I have another Dr appointment coming up soon, to hopefully solve my health issues.  Turns out I have something called a nose polyp, which could explain all my sinus and ear issues.  Hope to get it taken care of soon.
