Baked “Tandoori” Chicken

I started off this pandemic era with increased energy for cooking and especially baking (see: Berry Pavlova with Chocolate Drizzle and Banana Chip Muffins), but recently I've swung to the opposite end of the spectrum. I think it's a little bit of COVID-depression... It's hard to get excited about cooking dinner, when your life consists... Continue Reading →

Indian-ish Chicken Breasts

Our first month of participating in the Kitchn's Cookbook Club was a resounding success! We impressed ourselves by making several things out of September's selection - Salt Fat Acid Heat. [See: Pasta with Clams & Sausage, Chocolate Cupcakes with Rosewater Cream, and Sausages & Roasted Veggies in Agrodolce] For October, the book selected is Indian... Continue Reading →

Lemony Chicken & Orzo

After I typed up the recipe portion of this recipe, I looked up at our most recent posts and apparently we're going a little overboard with the lemon (Lemon Blueberry Muffins, Lemon Blueberry Skillet Cake)! So sorry, but we're featuring lemons again tonight. This is one of those recipes that got passed around because it's... Continue Reading →

Southern Fried Chicken

Holy *^%$ yall! We made fried chicken! We took advantage of this gorgeous summer day and went on ahead and conquered another culinary fear... homemade fried chicken. Prior to making this tonight, I typed out: "I'm 99.999% certain that we can't best KFC or any southern back road gas station's fried chicken, but we're going... Continue Reading →

Bahraini Chicken Machboos

  About a month ago, our friend/former co-worker Noel moved with her husband to Bahrain. Not exactly your average move to the other side of town, or across state lines. Noel has been blogging about their move and adventures halfway around the world, which is so fun to see! I was pretty jealous reading about... Continue Reading →

Curried Chicken Salad

I think I'm an anomaly of my generation. I still love the lunchbox sandwiches of the 90s. Egg salad, chicken salad, tuna salad? Yes please! (Side note, what makes these "salad?") I think most of my peers either a) ate so many of these sandwiches in childhood that they refuse to even glance at them... Continue Reading →

Zesty Chicken Salad

I think chicken salad is one of those dishes that gets a little bit of a bad reputation. Whether it's because your great aunt's recipe had a real problem with the chicken to mayonnaise ratio (I am in no way referring to any of my great-aunts) or you hate how people chop celery up into...

Slow Cooker Chicken Enchilada Soup

I don't know if you noticed, but we haven't shared too many posts this month so far (although our Sultan Selim Kofte was amazing & you should check it out!). A two-fold problem - we attempted a few recipes that we thought would be "blog-worthy," that just didn't turn out well, so we definitely couldn't... Continue Reading →

Cider Chicken with Savory Fall Fruits

We may have mentioned it once or twice, but we're big fans of wine in general and Virginia wine in particular. We used to live in Charlottesville, the de facto capital of Virginia wine country. There are many perks to living in Charlottesville, but definitely one of them is the proximity to the many wines... Continue Reading →
