Roasted Lemon Chicken with Dill Radishes

Ok, I’m just going to say that spring is officially here. I know some of you are gritting your teeth because it’s still snowing where you are but in Texas it’s 60 degrees and the bluebonnets are out. There’s no turning back now. After the bone-rattling cold winter we just had, there’s cause for celebration. So, last weekend I trekked to the nursery, grabbed seeds and tomato transplants, and threw on a big floppy hat (because it’s required for you to look absolutely ridiculous when gardening) and enjoyed the hours of back-breaking work. I thought getting my 5-year-old to help

Chicken Milanese

St. Paddy’s day is this weekend and Dallas is prepping for their big parade that I live right next too. So, I’m preparing for traffic, a sea of green, and stepping over the occasional drunk leprechaun. I’m also seeing lots of cabbage and potato recipes floating around the web-a-verse and that’s just making me obscenely hungry. Being that I am not Irish (at least I don’t think I am—I’m adopted so who the heck knows where my ancestry lies) I’m not going to give you an “Irish” recipe because I would seriously not know what I was talking about. Now,

Orange Broccoli Chicken

0 | March 2, 2014

Sometimes we need an easy and simple weeknight meal. Especially on those days that the dog has chewed up my favorite set of slippers, the child is in one of those moods that nothing will please her, laundry has miraculously and spontaneously exploded in every room of the house, I missed a deadline, and I think that might have been a hairball that I just stepped on. It’s days like today that I just go for a classic meal that everyone will enjoy or at least keep them quite for 15 minutes. Tender bites of chicken and broccoli coated with

I don’t know about you but I’m utterly obsessed with the Olympics. I’ve been like this as long as I can remember. It’s like a two week long Super Bowl without the horrible halftime shows and that makes me beyond enthralled! Hockey, skiing, skeleton, speed skating, snowboarding, bobsled, biathlon — it’s all awesome (notice I didn’t say figure skating, it’s a little too bedazzled for my tastes). In honor of the Olympics, I’ve been making simple no fuss dinners so I don’t miss a second. The other night we threw a few chicken thighs and sweet potatoes in a pan

Cold crisp days and bitter frosty nights are screaming for a warm rustic meal to comfort. If you ask the resident five-year-old what she wants for dinner, the answer will be roasted chicken 99% of the time. The other 1% of the time will certainly be something odd like swordfish sushi with pink sauce and sprinkles served in a boot. She’s a budding chef you know. I’m glad she loves roasted chicken so much because it’s my “go-to” meal when I’m clueless as to what to cook for dinner. Roasting a whole chicken is the most delicious a chicken can

If you’ve stuck with me for a while, then you know I have a teeny tiny obsession with autumn. Ok, that’s understating it — it’s a pretty big obsession. Although I love fall, I do not love what comes with it: the colds and viruses. Yes, I’m that mom with a bottle of disinfectant in one hand and hand sanitizer in the other. I wasn’t always this way. I blame it fully on having a child, because it only takes once to witness a finger going straight from a snotty runny nose to a door handle to realize that it’s too

I’m a little rhubarb obsessed lately. It’s in season, finally at the farmers market, and cheap in the stores. The best thing about rhubarb other than watching my child’s face contort in the most hilarious pucker ever when she bites into it raw is using it as a natural flavoring tool in recipes. Rhubarb can easily bring a boring dish into a whole new level or put a twist on a classic.

Rosemary Roasted Chicken with Roasted Grapes - Simple to make and the grapes make a wonderful sweet sauce!

Roasted chicken is one of my favorite rustic home-style dinners of all time. It’s super simple and completely satisfying, especially after a long day of work and the insanity that is raising kids and a huge dog. Gotta love them but let’s be honest, locking yourself in the bathroom with a glass of wine sounds good sometimes! Mental note – I need to install a secret bar when I remodel the bathroom.

Baked Chicken Parmesan Sliders

Who doesn’t love Chicken Parmesan? Crispy chicken slathered with tangy marinara sauce and covered with a gooey blanket of cheese. This retro dish has always been one of my favorites and a “go to” meal when it comes to needing a meal I know everyone young and old will eat. Simple, delicious, and certainly cheesy, this recipe will be on your family’s favorite list for a long time.

I’m not big on slow-cooker meals as I usually in my kitchen all day anyway but I know how great they are for people who are not crazy enough to spend most of their time in a kitchen.

Fried chicken is one of those southern things that can make a grown man weep. Unfortunately, we all know how bad it is for us to have on a regular basis. I have tried many ways to bake chicken to make it taste close to fried but I could never get it crunchy enough. Panko (Japanese breadcrumbs) came close but it just wasn’t enough. Finally, after a little tip from America’s Test Kitchen I no longer sigh over a plate of soggy baked panko chicken. All you have to do to avoid this dreaded disaster is toast the panko before
