Stewed Chicken and Chickpeas

Stewed Chicken and Chickpeas

Since I don’t like eggs, cheese, or tofu, vegetarian food in my house typically involves beans in some form or fashion. I haven’t been very creative with them. I can only have lentil soup or chili or chickpeas and sweet potatoes so often, even though I love […]

Japanese Fried Chicken (Tori no Kara-age)

Japanese Fried Chicken (Tori no Kara-age)

This Japanese fried chicken is near and dear to my heart. The recipe, called tori no kara-age, was the first dish my host mom ever made for me when I studied abroad – we ate it the night I moved in with my homestay family. […]

Slow Cooker Chicken Enchilada Soup

Slow Cooker Chicken Enchilada Soup

So far, January cooking is going well. I tried out my mom’s meatball recipe (would you believe I haven’t made plain meatballs before?) and it turned out well. For my second #cook90 dinner, I made this Chicken Enchilada Soup in the slow cooker. It’s super-cold in […]

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 […]
