My New Favorite Roast Chicken

I make roast chicken.  A lot.  It’s a weekly menu fare around our house, usually on Friday nights.  Some think it’s daunting to put a whole bird into the oven but I love that after it’s prepped, you can stick it in the oven and walk away.  I’ve made Ina’s roast chicken and Lucinda’s roast [...]

Slow Cooker Chicken Stew

I realize it’s been eons since I’ve last posted a recipe.  Truth is life with three kids has turned my world topsy turvy.  Between chauffeuring kids to and from places, an almost 6 month old that requires her mother around the clock, buckets of laundry, keeping house, etc, blogging has taken a backseat.  But that doesn’t [...]

Summer Garden Pasta

Summer is quickly coming to an end around our house.  The weather is slightly cooler, the anticipation of school is in the air and oh yeah, I’m having a baby this week.  Nothing like adding another little one to your brood to make you realize those long leisurely summer days are over!:)  It’s a bittersweet [...]

Sagaponack Corn Pudding

Summer is my favorite season to entertain.  The kids are usually healthy (usually), the weather is warm and you can grill your main entree leaving the hostess to just have to prepare a few sides.  We had some friends over last weekend and I needed a gluten-free menu.  I wanted a side dish that was [...]

Pesto Chicken Burgers

I found this recipe in my latest edition of Everyday Food. It looked easy enough and I had a few of the ingredients already on hand…love when that happens!  I was able to use fresh basil from my garden (love summertime!), the fresh mozzarella was on sale at Whole Foods and I swapped the focaccia [...]

Summer Brunch Menu

Last weekend I hosted a brunch for some lovely ladies.  I’ve actually never done brunch before but wow, it’s much easier than having people over for dinner.  I always enjoy entertaining at dinner time but truth be told, it’s a lot of work.  I had people over the weekend before for an Indian meal and [...]

Apricot Oat Bars

For those of you who know me, you may know we recently got rid of our cable. Oh boy.  I will be honest.  It’s been a lot harder for me, as most things usually are I’m coming to realize!  I no longer have the luxury of watching my favorite cooking shows at night while folding [...]

Banana Muffins

Here’s another breakfast recipe that gets rave reviews from my kids.  Besides, who else do we aim to please than our kids when it comes to mealtime?  What I love, love, love about this recipe is that there is no sifting of the dry ingredients!  Huge timesaver for a momma!  It’s basically just dump, mix [...]

Baked Chicken Fingers

Who doesn’t love chicken fingers?  I realize it’s a very kid friendly food but secretly, we adults love them too.  I’ve done different variations of chicken fingers in the past but when I ran across this recipe where the panko crumbs were already toasted, I knew I had a winner.  My kids enjoyed it although [...]
