Chicken Curry SousVide

IMG_5487

  I’ve made quite a few recipes using my Sous Vide Supreme. The thing I really like most about it how I can cook meat to a perfect doneness by leaving it in the water bath all day while I go out enjoy whatever else needs to get done. Today I prepared a couple bone-in [...]

Chicken Artichoke Piccata for #SundaySupper

20130706_194001

Honest, quality, home cooked meals is what chef Sara Moulton has embodied throughout her work on PBS, FoodNetwork, and her many cookbooks.  I personally haven’t followed Sara’s work as well as some other TV chefs; though, I’m not a big fan of the craziness surrounding the cook celebrity fandom that has become quite a spectacle in food circles. I [...]

Grilled Prosciutto Wrapped Chicken Breasts for #SundaySupper

IMG_4651

  Summertime grilling is one of my favorite times of the season.  When we used to live in Michigan, it felt extra special after long periods of bad weather.  Though I was one of the crazy people who would clear a path in the snow to the grill, dust off the layer of snow and [...]

Balsamic Strawberry Chicken using a SousVide Supreme

IMG_3963

    Making a juicy grilled chicken is not an easy undertaking, even by someone with some serious grilling skills. It’s not difficult getting some great grill marks, but keeping the inside tender while the grill marks are forming often makes for a fairly dry chicken breast. This is where sous-vide cooking can add a [...]

Thank you Meat God. When we moved out of Texas last year to come back to my home state California, one thing I knew I’d miss was Burgundy Pasture Beef.  The ranch in Grandview, Texas was a gem in where I sourced my meats. We would drive to the ranch about every 6 weeks (it [...]

I love participating in the group #SundaySupper where over 50 fellow food bloggers get together every weekend to share our recipes with each other and anyone else on the web. Last week’s Soul Warming theme netted a handful of recipes I couldn’t wait to try.  On top of that list was Hezzi-D’s Jalapeno Popper Chicken [...]

Chicken, Leek and Mushroom Casserole

My wife and I were sitting around Saturday morning with her looking through the January 2009 Martha Stewart Living. She pointed out two recipes that looked good for me to try. Hint, hint… The one that really caught my eye was a Chicken, Leek and Mushroom Casserole (pg. 45) that just looked like some amazing [...]

Chicken Taquitos

IMG_1737

  I love tacos, but I also love taquitos. My favorite Mexican food growing up was basically a deep fried taco. Our family did a lot of restaurant dining when I was in my early teens and a popular favorite spot was Chi-Chi’s. Though the thought of eating chain restaurant Mexican food today sounds like [...]

Blacked Cajun Chicken with Wild Rice & Asparagus

IMG_1673

This weekend’s #SundaySupper challenge is making a dish limited to 5 ingredients.  Being a fan of food author Michael Pollan I am very familiar with the 5 ingredient mantra.  See Pollan did a book called In Defense of Food that looked to provide some guidance for today’s conscience eater.  With so many foods, especially processed [...]
