Bacon-Wrapped Drumsticks

Bacon-Wrapped Drumsticks

A few months ago, I sent Yuseff an e mail at work asking what he wanted to eat for dinner. He replied with a picture of something that looked extremely complicated, but also unbelievably delicious: So, obviously there was no way we weren’t having Bacon-Wrapped Drumsticks for dinner. And to my surprise, they weren’t neccessarily … Continue reading

Garlic Dijon Chicken

Garlic Dijon Chicken

When we spent a day making prep-ahead freezer meals, we made a few batches of “Dump Chicken.” The idea here is to simply defrost, dump into an oven-safe dish, and bake for 20 minutes. But, that doesn’t mean you have to cook your chicken that way. When we cooked our Garlic Dijon Chicken, we threaded … Continue reading

There are two Thai restaurants in Pittsburgh that Yuseff and I love. Nicky’s Thai Kitchen on the North Side and Little Bangkok in the Strip District.

We also like to buy a lot of our meat from Saleem’s Market in the Strip … Continue reading

Bourbon Chicken

Bourbon Chicken

I was cleaning out my memory card earlier this week and found pictures for all of the steps to make bourbon chicken.

The timestamp … Continue reading

Tandoori Chicken and Naan

Tandoori Chicken and Naan

When I plan my weekly menus, I have to take into account whether or not it is a week that I have Marco with me. I’ve talked before about how he is an average kid with average kid tastes (much to my dismay), and I don’t see the point in force feeding him foods that I … Continue reading

Falafel Crusted Chicken with Hummus Slaw

Falafel Crusted Chicken with Hummus Slaw

Over the weekend I caught up on some reading. I recently finished two books: Room by Emma Donahue and The Help by Kathryn Stockett. Now, I know that this blog is about food (and sometimes crafts), but let me digress for a second to talk about books. The Help is freaking amazing. Probably one of … Continue reading
