Ok, ok, before you look at this photo and think, “What are the weird chunks?”, I’ll tell you, that’s peanut butter! I thought Mole sauce needed a kick of peanut butter (you know, mole sauce has cocoa as an ingredient, which is where I got the inspiration for this recipe). Last year when I first got… Continue reading Simple Shredded Chicken, Peanut Butter and Chocolate Style!
When Nick and I started dating he “hated” olives, but not anymore. Keep this in mind ladies (and gents); if your significant other claims to “hate something”, feed it to him or her anyway because if they are anything like Nick they will eventually learn that they actually don’t mind the food at all. Of course this… Continue reading Olive Crusted Cod in Foil
I’m a dietitian, not a chef. I play a chef on this blog, but who am I kidding? I love to cook, I love to eat, but I don’t have any true culinary education (although I took some pretty intense food science classes in college and I guess that could count as some culinary education. It was… Continue reading Low FODMAPs Chicken Stock
Other than pumpkin and apples, there are two additional foods about which I get extremely giddy when fall comes around; slow-cooked foods and hot soups. Both of these I also enjoy in the Spring, and Summer, or course, but when Fall starts to show up in Ohio I definitely get out the slow cooker and… Continue reading Chicken Stew with Turnips and Mushroom
There is something about artichokes that I really love. Maybe it’s the salty brine? Or the soft and yet al- dente texture (soft on the inside and somewhat al dente on the outside)? I’m not sure what it is, by I like them. Did you know that artichokes are full of prebiotic fiber (also known as… Continue reading East Indian Curried Chicken with Capers and Whole Wheat Couscous
Martha Stewart has been on the Today Show a lot lately. She’s looking for a boyfriend. Did you know this? It’s been pretty entertaining watching her meet (for the first time) a couple of new guys that she found online. So awkward, yet so fascinating! Did you know Martha is actually in her seventies? I… Continue reading Tacos With Tangy Cilantro Chicken
Have you ever used hulled hemp? Me either, until the other day. I’d seen it on the shelves but never really thought to buy an entire bag because I wasn’t really sure what to do with it. I was in the grocery store a few weeks ago and saw it in the bulk section, perfect.… Continue reading Hemp-Crusted Avocado Chicken
I’m reading a book called Taste What You’re Missing; The Passionate Eater’s Guide to Why Food Tastes So Good. The book is long, and I’m probably only 1/4th of the way into it, but I’ve already learned so much. I’ll dedicate an entire post on it one of these days, because it’s that good, and fascinating.… Continue reading Clean Eating’s Chicken Pizza with Mushrooms and Arugula
The June, 2013 issue of Cleaning Eating Magazine was filled with foil-packet recipes for the grill, in addition to some amazing burger recipes (which I found ironic, because apparently it’s May that is National Burger month…did you know that?), which I’ll be posting soon. One day a couple weeks ago my parents came over for dinner and… Continue reading Clean Eating’s Peanut Chicken in Foil Packets
There were always three things my dad made really well when I was growing up; Pizza, Chili, and Chicken Cacciatore (ok, four including the fudge he makes at Christmas, and actually five if you include his Chicken Marsala, I forgot about that one…). Not too long ago Nick and I went over to my parent’s… Continue reading Who Knew My Dad’s Chicken Cacciatore Was So Simple?!
