There was a time that I planned our entire weekly menu based around this blog. I had a wall covered in post-it notes, an editorial calendar and I checked my stats multiple times a day.  I spent my day browsing food blogs and messaging my foodie friends for inspiration. Some days, I miss reading fifteen...

How To Spatchcock A Chicken

August 21, 2015 | 1 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.
