Spicy Honey Brushed Chicken Thighs

I find myself drawn more and more to recipes with boneless skinless chicken thighs rather than chicken breasts – I think it’s because even without skin, the additional fat in the chicken meat does wonders for mouth feel. And with this particular recipe, the glaze created by the honey mixture almost recreates skin – you […]

Chinese Garlic Chicken

I’ve really been running on empty lately – trying to get by on 4 or 5 hours a sleep a night, and it’s finally caught up with me. I ended up sleeping right through all of the farmers markets today! Seriously! I was up working on the blog around 5 or 6am. Went to go […]

Pork and Sauerkraut

When I first met my husband, over a dozen years ago – I couldn’t stand sauerkraut. What kind of German was I? I mean, if he rinsed it a lot, stuck some apples and sweet stuff in there, I could tolerate it. But I didn’t like it. But he loved it so much, that he […]

Apples & Thyme: Apple Dapple Pudding

You know, in the grand scheme of things my knowledge of family recipes is rather limited. My grandmother and great-grandmother passed away quite a while ago, before cooking and traditions and family heritage were important to me, and I had pretty much already spoken about all the recipes I remember. So I asked my mom […]

Indian Cashew Chicken

Any previous attempts at making Indian or Indian inspired food on my part have failed miserably for one reason or another – too much garam masala, wrong spice balance, etc – the final result ended up just not being very good. This Indian-inspired Cooking Light recipe is an exception – it’s very subtle, but it’s […]

Quick Sauerbraten and Spaetzle

I absolutely love sauerbraten, but definitely don’t love the 5 days total that my usual recipe takes to make. I was looking for a recipe that could be made overnight (or same day) since we had a German theme to one of our recent Sunday family dinners. This one fit the bill quite nicely. Other […]

Farm Fresh and Local Produce – 10/18/08

Can you believe that the markets are winding down for the season? Only 1 more week in the regular season for Worthington, and 2 weeks for Clintonville. Of course there will be special markets (at Thanksgiving time for Clintonville, the Winter Market for Worthington), but there’s only a couple more weeks left for getting up […]

Roasted Chioggia Beets with Feta

I’m one of those people who really don’t like beets. And to be honest, I still don’t like beets all that much. But this recipe is an exception. This is a recipe even beet-haters will love. The combination of flavors is absolutely amazing, and this is a recipe that I definitely will be making again. […]
