Turkey Sloppy Joes with Hoisin and Cilantro

My parents gave me a subscription to a magazine called Fine Cooking for Christmas. I have been receiving it for several years now and I LOVE it! It’s one of my favorite cooking magazines. One recipe is better than the next.

This recipe came from the latest issue and it’s a perfect weeknight meal because it […]

Pressure Cooker Chicken Piccata

Share

Guess what I got for Christmas? A pressure cooker! This past fall, I read about the resurgence in popularity of pressure cookers. They sounded a lot more appealing than the one my mom used when I was growing up. She used hers fairly frequently and it had a valve on top that made a terribly […]

Grilled Chicken with Pesto and Marinated Tomatoes

Share

 

 

I love quick, flavorful summer meals and this is one of them. I modified the recipe below slightly. It was easy to start with, but I wanted to make it easier so I didn’t bother butterflying/pounding the chicken. I also cheated and bought some pre-made pesto. I dumped the pesto into a bowl, forgot to […]

Thai Curry Turkey Burgers

Share

We arrived on Shelter Island yesterday early evening. It was gorgeous outside, the sun was shining and it was hot, but not too hot. I had a hankering to turn on the grill, but since it was getting late, I wanted to make something simple that wasn’t going to take me until midnight to prepare. […]

Chicken Florentine Style

Share

Ok, so this isn’t the best picture, I didn’t arrange the dish very well, but boy was this a great dinner. I can’t wait to make it again. The sauce on the chicken is to die for. I actually wish I had made some extra sauce, it was that good. The shallots, wine and garlic […]

Cajun Jambalaya

Jambalaya, according to the Oxford English Dictionary, is derived from the Provençal word ‘jambalaia’ which means mish-mash or mixup. It also means a pilaf of rice.

The other day was cold and damp and I wanted to make some easy comfort food. This recipe fit the bill perfectly. It’s a great one-pot meal that doesn’t take […]

Mitzi's Chicken Fingers

Share

Ok, I’m a little embarrassed to say that these chicken fingers are deep fried, but let me tell you, they are the best chicken fingers I have ever eaten, never-mind made. The seasoning on the chicken is amazing and they’re nice and crunchy. They’re also delicious hot or cold and surprisingly not greasy. Now if […]

Chicken and Dumplings

I’ve made this recipe a couple of times now. Filling and delicious, it’s pure comfort food that’s great to serve on a chilly evening. We’re finally having some chilly nights here in NYC. We’ve had quite a mild winter so far.

This is a great weeknight meal, although it takes a little bit of time to […]

Spinach Salad with Chicken and Apples

Share

I have been making this spinach salad for years – longer than I’ve been married actually. I have no idea where I found the recipe. I’m so happy to finally be posting it. I made it last night as a light dinner and we gobbled it up. Not the boys, of course. That said, they […]

Baked Ziti with Tomato, Mozzarella and Sausage

Share

I always find big casseroles hard to photograph. I’m never sure if it’s best to photograph the whole casserole, or if it’s better to pile some up on a plate for a photo. This isn’t the best photo, but I was anxious to post this recipe because I think it’s so delicious. I don’t typically […]
