Chipolte Tamale Pie

July 16, 2007

Ingrid Hoffman inspired me so much on Saturday that I promptly left the house after viewing her new program on the Food Network and picked up everything I would need to make the spicy Chipolte Tamale Pie. Unfortunately my local grocery store is Whole Foods so there isn’t a box of Jiffy Cornbread allowed within […]

Garlic and Citrus Chicken

March 5, 2007

I’d only baked a chicken once before, last year on Easter, but it came out fine so I figured when I decided to roast another chicken (using the same recipe I might add) that I’d be an old pro by now. Unfortunately, overconfidence in the kitchen is not a good thing. It all started out […]

Rachael Ray’s Double Chicken Dumpling Soup

February 1, 2007

I find it fascinating that as much as I hate cutting and working with raw chicken breasts, I really enjoy making meatballs.

Dave Lieberman’s Thai Chicken Curry

January 4, 2007

Dave Lieberman’s Thai Chicken Curry is absolutely delicious.  I’m now officially in love with coconut milk and I can’t wait to use it in something else.  Chris and I devoured the entire dish, which was intended to be four servings, but since this was done slightly pre New Year’s Resolutions time I’m not inclined to […]

Chicken and Black Bean Empanadas

December 5, 2006

In an effort to be adventurous in the kitchen my love affair with all things Dave Lieberman continues. I have yet to make a recipe from Dave’s collection that I didn’t find thoroughly delicious, and these Chicken and Black Bean Empanadas were no exception. The chicken mixture is spicy, smoky, and surprisingly hearty, and I’ve […]

Farfalle with Turkey Sausage, Peas and Mushrooms

November 19, 2006

We’re obviously all more than aware that I can cook, but I bet you didn’t know that CK can also hold his own in the kitchen. The below dish is actually a reenactment of the first meal that Chris ever made for me. We both had a bit of a crush on Giada de Laurentis and spent […]
