I have a bottle of marsala hanging around in my kitchen from when I made wine cakes for Christmas. I know it’s a great sherry substitute when cooking, but despite that, I practically never use it. I always reach for my vermouth instead (which I put in practically everything). I’m going to be making a

There are a handful of foods that remind me of home. Garbage plates are probably the first, and I hope to have a recipe up for you sometime soon (I need to perfect a meat sauce of my own, as it’s a signature part of the dish). Second would have to be chicken french. It’s

Beef stew is your classic hearty food. It’s a set-it-and-forget it type of meal that rewards you in the evening with a delicious and filling dinner. There are countless variations on it across the internet and throughout cookbooks. Somehow, until now, I haven’t put up a recipe of my own, though I’ve made it many times

Just like the Harry Potter-inspired pumpkin pasties from last week, this week’s recipe is straight from the pages of another YA book series, The Immortal Descendants. At one point, the main crew enjoys a meal of Moroccan chicken and olives, which I thought sounded pretty good, so I looked up a few recipes, picked and chose from

Don’t let the ingredient list fool you, this recipe is super easy, super healthy, and super filling. It can also easily be converted into a vegetarian recipe by swapping out the chicken for some extra firm or firm tofu. Make it vegan with a cheese substitute. When we make this recipe (as I try to

Last winter, people got really excited about red wine hot chocolate. I thought it sounded kind of dumb, so I let it be. Well, here I am, months later, faced with a chocolate craving and a remaining third of a bottle of merlot. So I said, screw it, let’s try it. I’m going to come

I have been loving my new cast iron skillet! Now that I know how to clean it, I’ve been using it almost weekly, and the dinners that come out of it are out of this world. Personally, I’m a fan of chicken and fish, and now that I’ve ventured into the realm of cast iron

Back in the Christmas post, I made a brief mention of wine cakes, and I showed the recipe in my little slideshow. Well, if you looked at the recipe, you might have noticed that it was a little… well, cryptic. After a few calls to my mom and a little bit of trial and error,

I haven’t posted a dinner in a while, so I figure that it’s about time I did. Chicken is one of those meats that’s generally agreeable, even with hardcore carnivores like the boyfriend (who is more of the mindset that chicken is just a higher order vegetable). While it’s often prepared as a relatively light
