Cheese Biscuits recipe from food52 Author Notes: Frequently on Tuesdays, Kristen shows up to our photo shoot bearing an armload of goodies from Bluebird Coffee Shop. All of the baked treats from this tiny gem of a place in the East Village of Manhattan are delicious, but our little cadre has pinpointed a couple of particular favorites: the doughnuts (more on those later this week from Amanda), and the cheese biscuits -- impossibly tender and almost melting within, the subtle bite of cheddar woven throughout. The other week, Amanda and I went to visit Adam Baumgart in his pastry kitchen in the basement of Bluebird, and he taught us how to make both of our top picks, sharing his tips and tricks along the way. This is Adam’s recipe for his heavenly biscuits. (less)Author Notes: Frequently on Tuesdays, Kristen shows up to our photo shoot bearing an armload of goodies from Bluebird Coffee Shop.

Chicken Marsala | Chicken Recipes One of my favorite easy weeknight dinners is chicken marsala. Made with sauteed mushrooms in a marsala wine sauce, this dinner has become a regular in our household for years. Typically I buy two chicken breasts and split them to make four pieces. This is a great method to stretch a few pieces of chicken out to feed more people. By pounding the chicken out, it also shortens the cooking time making this dinner a doable meal under 30 minutes from start to finish. {Easy Anytime Dinner} Chicken Marsala Recipe Author: Savory Sweet Life Recipe type: Chicken Prep time: Cook time: Total time: Serves: 4 2 skinless, boneless, chicken breastssalt and freshly ground black pepper½ cup all purpose flour or corn starch for gluten-freeup to ½ cup olive or vegetable oil8 ounces container of mushroom, sliced and cleaned2 tablespoons butter½ cup sweet Marsala wine¼ cup chicken stock¼ cup sherry or dry white wineOptional: 2 tablespoons heavy creamGarnish with chopped parsley or oregano

Chicken teriyaki I’ve been cooking for as long as I can remember and in certain periods of my life I did not have much time to spend in the kitchen – I needed delicious yet quick meals for weeknights. On my days as a single lady I used to make lots of pasta – both my dad and my sister are crazy for it and dinner would be on the table in less than half an hour. Recently I’ve been trying my hand at Asian recipes and some of them are absolutely delicious – and equally fast. This chicken teriyaki is a great example: it has instantly become a favorite of my husband’s – a.k.a. "the picky eater" – and it took me moments to put it together. Let me tell you something: if my husband liked it, picky people everywhere will probably like it, too. Chicken teriyaki slightly adapted from the wonderful Nigella Kitchen In a bowl large enough to hold all the chicken pieces, mix together the sake, mirin, soy sauce, sugar, ginger, spring onions and sesame oil.

Spanish Chicken with Chorizo and Potatoes We've managed to both forget our fifth anniversary last Friday. I don't know if it's due to my working like mad before having to catch a delayed flight back from Shanghai late in the evening while Vijay was too comfortable with me leaving him a free man for almost two weeks. The nearly forsaken milestone was only remembered when Vijay examined the leather strap of his watch, then sparking up a recap of our various gifts to each other past birthdays, Christmases and yes, the day we got together. While the watch I gave to Vijay pretty much bound his wrist every single day since Christmas two years ago till its leather strap had started to require some attention, my Nigella Lawson cookbook from him with much love (and much more expectation, I reckoned) was largely neglected for the pass 6 months, like my other cookbooks. Sometimes even the most adventurous and willing cook need a break and would want to put lunch together by spending less than half an hour in the kitchen.
