I’m flirting with going vegetarian. I’m reading up on different kinds of grains, beans and legumes. I dream about finding joy in bowls full of greens. I constantly (weekly) ask my husband if he thinks he could go meat-free (the answers are always inconclusive -or- NO). But for now, I’ll try and focus on eating healthier meats. Like chicken. If you’re anything like me, you eat a TON of chicken. I think chicken is the healthiest lean protein to eat (aside from fish – but I’m not in Seattle here) and one of the cheapest to get all natural, free range, or organic. This is where I run into problems. Here’s one that’s great. Garlic-Lime Chicken Adapted from All Recipes 3/4 teaspoon salt 1/4 teaspoon black pepper 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper 1/8 teaspoon paprika 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder 1/8 teaspoon onion powder 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme 1/4 teaspoon dried parsley 4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves 1.

Scottish Farmhouse Eggs | Ahoy! | Portland Maine DIY BlogDecided to mix things up and do a recipe. This is one I’ve made forever and I’m not 100% positive where I picked it up. It is always a crowd pleaser for brunch or breakfast. Special thank you to Dawnland Mama for the farm fresh duck eggs (even though she is a vegan herself).Honey Glazed Chicken and Bacon BitesI had an idea. Actually, it was more like my three hundred and forty-sixth idea for this month and I now have the hips to show for it. No biggie, I consider it a small sacrifice for eating food that tastes this good. So I asked myself: “Would it be a really crazy idea to wrap loads of bacon around chicken strips and brush them with a spruced up honey marinade?”. Why yes, Kay, it would be. But frankly, I like crazy. See, now that’s what happens when you blog from your desolated home or kitchen (in the burbs). Anyway, it turned out nothing short of a phenomenal idea that I simply have to share here in my little corner of the www. Ingredients: 1 pound boneless chicken breasts 20 thin bacon slices 3 tbsp honey 2 tsp coarse mustard fresh lemon juice Optional: salt Directions: Cut the chicken breasts—or fillets, as we call them here—in thin strips. Note: I’m using the Dutch equivalent to bacon in this recipe. Grab a bowl and combine 3 tbsp honey with 2 tsp coarse mustard.
Baked Cheesy Chicken BakeToday’s recipe is a cheesy baked pasta that I found over at Our Best Bites . Sara based the recipe on a Martha Stewart recipe. This yummy dish consists of a cheesy pasta blended with chicken, sun-dried tomatoes, and mushrooms. Now I know the sun-dried tomatoes aren’t something most of you probably keep on had, so you could just leave them out if you like. Then just up the amount of chicken or mushrooms by 1 cup or I was thinking some broccoli or asparagus tips would also work well in place of the tomatoes. I did however really enjoy the sun-dried tomatoes in this dish but some of my family did eat around them. Another great thing about this recipe is it makes two – 2 quart dishes. When I made this recipe I also decided to try it with some pasta samples that I had received from Ronzoni . Finally, the winner of the “Nourish Your Inner Goddess” giveaway from Yoplait and MyBlogSpark is: Kate who said: I always love any kind of berry yogurt. Congrats Kate! Baked Cheesy Chicken Penne
Party Food! Pizza in a BiteOctober 20th, 2008 by katie Getting together to watch a game? Or maybe watching a different sort of game? Pizza bites are awesome party food. This recipe makes three trays which means you can pop them in the freezer and always have a quick appetizer on hand. Although, they are usually so popular that you’ll wind up baking all three trays in one night!

I used to use the refrigerated pizza doughs for this recipe, but I actually find the homemade dough far easier to work with. Basic Pizza Dough 1 pkg active dry yeast (or 2 1/4 tsp loose yeast)1 cup warm water1 tbsp olive oil1 tsp salt2 3/4 cup flourCombine yeast and warm water, stir to dissolve.Add oil, salt, and flour.

As this simmers, your kitchen will be filled with an intoxicating sweet and sour aroma that will leave you anxious to eat. My friend Liren of Kitchen Confidante was so gracious to share her family recipe with me, which I slightly modified to reduce the fat. I served this over brown basmati rice which made this a complete meal. It's recommended marinating this overnight but if you're pressed for time, at least one hour before cooking. I always use dark meat when making stew; legs and thighs both work well. I hope you all enjoyed your Thanksgiving and didn't eat too much!
