Fajitas

Fajitas

I finally have a favorite recipe for fajitas. It’s delicious, fast, and incredibly easy to make. Previously, I made (some probably-ok-by-90s-standards) fajitas before using a recipe from a cookbook I’d had for years; they were always tasty, but I recall the recipe being a little […]

Slow Cooker Chicken Chili

Slow Cooker Chicken Chili

Cooking is much easier with a one-year old than it was with a baby. It got better when she was able to sit upright and play with toys or watch me from her high chair. Now that she can toddle into and out of the […]

Thai Chicken with Basil and Cashews

Thai Chicken with Basil and Cashews

I started buying a CSA box this year. I really like getting a variety of veggies, but it can be a struggle to figure out what to do with them, particularly when the farm has a bumper crop of the same vegetable each week. I […]

Turkey Kofta and Curried Couscous with Zucchini

Turkey Kofta and Curried Couscous with Zucchini

Several months ago I made turkey kofta and curried couscous with zucchini, but never got around to telling you about it. The recipes were tasty, though, so I didn’t forget about them. I finally got around to making both dishes again this week. Both the […]

Coq au Vin

Coq au Vin

When Alex is out of town, I cook food he doesn’t like. Last time he traveled, I decided to make Alton Brown’s Coq au Vin recipe. It is not a fast recipe to make, so I contemplated the recipe a while before taking the plunge. […]

Kung Pao Chicken Tacos

Kung Pao Chicken Tacos

I’m going to complain about a rather tasty dinner I made. Yes, complain. Because although Kung Pao Chicken Tacos were tasty, it was an awful lot of prep for 5 minutes of eating dinner. I know that I’m the person who makes her own vanilla […]

Hainan Chicken and Rice

Hainan Chicken and Rice

Happy Lunar New Year! There are a variety of foods that one is supposed to eat for the lunar new year, but unfortunately, in spite of having spent a year in Japan, I don’t know enough about what those should be. I apparently should have […]

Chicken with Cola Sauce

Chicken with Cola Sauce

I drink diet soda – I prefer to save my calories and sugar for real food and dessert. If you’re going to cook with soda, though, you can’t use the diet stuff because the sweetener will deteriorate. I bought a bottle of generic, full-sugar cola […]

Tonight’s dinner: Tori no kara-age

Tonight’s dinner: Tori no kara-age

It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything, and I still have a backlog of recipes that I’d really like to write about, but I thought I would start off with something a little more immediate: tonight’s dinner, tori no kara-age, or Japanese-style fried chicken. […]

Sweet and Sour Chicken

Sweet and Sour Chicken

I realize it’s been 2 weeks (!) since my last update. I’ve been busy! We went to Las Vegas last weekend (awesome trip, by the way), and I spent the week before and afterward getting all of my reading and homework done for the meteorology […]
