August 21, 2015 | 0 Comments

Before last week, I’d never spatchcocked anything.  Not a turkey, nor a chicken, but I did know that this technique that is a nice way of saying “removing the backbone and laying the bird flat” is always a winning recipe. By laying the bird flat, it cooks evenly and stays moist.  Even the breast. A...

It’s funny how “comfort foods” and “childhood memories” mean entirely different things for different people.  You ask me to name comfort food and I think of meatballs, sheperds pie or a winning chicken diner.  I don’t think of apple pie or cheesy casseroles.  I think of the foods that warm you up from the inside and...

It’s no secret that I have been a little off radar for the tail end of this year.  My family and I still eat well, but perhaps we entertain a little less.  I still love food, but my attention has been split.  I’m a little embarrassed to look at my recipe index and see how...
