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 [...]

Texas Brisket for #SundaySupper

  When I read this week’s SundaySupper theme was “Low & Slow” I knew exactly what I wanted to make and where I would get inspiration from.  As regular readers of my blog will know, this site has been taken over by a lot of slow cooking – cooking in a smoker to be exact. [...]

Broccoli Patties with Arugula and Champagne Vinaigrette for #SundaySupper

This week’s Sunday Supper is all about the Skinny.  One thing that has helped keep our family less-thick was our move to more vegetarian meals. Most of our decision to go vegetarian 3-4 times a week came from Mark Bittman’s New York Times article “The Meat Guzzler.”  Besides the benefit of eating less meat and its more [...]

Jägerschnitzel for #SundaySupper

This week’s Sunday Supper theme is Retro Recipes.  I was reminded a couple weeks ago about one of my favorite restaurants when I made some German Lentil Soup from Portland Oregon’s Der Rheinlander. The soup was great, but it was missing something. Something I loved to eat as a child - Jägerschnitzel.  It was one of [...]

Carrot, Parsnip and Lentil Casserole #SundaySupper

This is what I was going to make for last week’s #SundaySupper theme celebrating the One Year Anniversary of what “Family Foodie” Isabel started out as a friendly twitter conversation talking about what people were cooking on Sunday evenings. I loved the early chats, since Sunday was a guaranteed day I’d be in the kitchen [...]

San Antonio Puffy Tacos for #SundaySupper

  One of my favorite things about being part of the SundaySupper bloggers is how the weekly themes make me think beyond what I might normally do as a home cook.  This week was definitely one of those times as I had to consider what would I make from my Recipe Bucket List. Problem was [...]

Jalapeno Popper Chicken Chili

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 [...]

#SundaySupper Beer-Braised Beef

Here in California with temperatures falling into the upper 70s it is getting that time of year for a hearty stew or soup. Alright, so it doesn’t feel like the time of year for a stew. Fortunately, it doesn’t really matter what the temperature is outside. I always enjoy a rich, chunky stew.  The melding [...]

Blacked Cajun Chicken with Wild Rice & Asparagus

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 [...]
