IMG_3512

When I heard what this week’s Sunday Supper theme was I knew exactly what I wanted to make, since I had tried making the dish a month before and knew I was close to getting it right. The theme this week is Copycats Recipes. Basically, recreate a recipe from a restaurant. Badmaash is an unique […]

Beer Can Chicken

IMG_1721

This is a bit of a lowbrow dish for  a sustainable food blog, but who cares. It’s chicken and beer and that is a fine combination any time for me.  Plus beer can chicken makes for an easy effort dish after work, provided you have enough time to wait for it to finish cooking. Note […]

Organic Chicken Strips with Morel Mushroom Reduction

  My new job is surround by some great food choices including my favorite grocery stores Erewhon and Whole Foods. I stopped by Whole Foods after work and quickly bought a few things including some Mary’s Organic chicken though I accidentally grabbed a package of tenders instead of split boneless chicken breasts.  Of course I didn’t realize […]

Why We Don’t Buy From Tyson, Perdue and Others

Last night’s HBO Last Week Tonight with John Oliver is a great example why our family moved to a sustainable food solution. If you didn’t see it, John took the chicken industry to task for treating its contract farmers like shit. Like chicken shit to be exact. Here is the full clip that shows how […]

Chicken Curry with Sweet Potato and Chickpeas

I haven’t been writing much lately because I have been busy with a new job I started almost three weeks ago. The new job is a bit longer of a commute which led me to look for some slow cooker (crockpot) recipes since I get home a little later than I used to and well […]

Chicken Tinga Tamales

      Nothing says Christmas like making Tamales. At least that’s the case for a lot of families, but not ours.  I wasn’t raised in a house that made tamales for the holidays. Nope. Instead we made spritz cookies and as a kid I would sneak into the garage freezer and eat a few […]

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 […]
