Roasted Chicken Ramen Broth

Even though spring is (supposedly) around the corner, its been pretty frigid.  There was a blizzard of sorts here on the Northeast the other day. What better way to warm up than a steaming bowl of soup? I was craving ramen the other day, and so I decided to try my hand at making a…

Hiking Day and Roasted Chicken

Right before it got to frigid to even think about going outside, The Russian and I went for a hike at Noanet peak in Dover. You can see all the way to Boston from the top of the peak, and the climb is beautiful. It was nice to get out of the city, even for…

Recipe: BBQ Chicken Sandwich with Cilantro Slaw

Sometimes you just need a messy sandwich for dinner, and I love those kind of nights.  I love fancy foods and interesting techniques, but I proudly admit that I also love a great sandwich (or burger!) and a beer. I’m sure my arteries won’t be thanking me, but a life without a messy sandwich is…

Recipe: Siracha–Glazed chicken skewers

A few weeks ago, on my airport on the way home from Florida, I decided to buy a few magazines ( my type of guilty pleasures). I was having trouble deciding what to get until I walked by this month’s issue of Bon Appetit. The whole issue is on grilling, and they decided to put…

Besides, using your hands and tearing food apart with your teeth is so Game of Thrones–y.   Ingredients: 1 package party drumettes [$5] Flour, all purpose [$2] Veg. oil…

Cheap Eats: Taco Tuesday at La Verdad

I’ve been going to La Verdad for a while. It’s kinda sad I haven’t written about this before.  I guess on some subconscious level I don’t want the world knowing, for fear La Verdad will turn into Ken Oringer’s other impossibly–hard–to–get–a–seat incredible hotspot Toro.  I can’t have that. I need these tacos. So La Verdad…

Recipe: Soy-Balsamic chicken thighs

I recently obtained a subscription to Real Simple, a magazine that literally makes me feel better about a lot of things in my life, from organization to awesome recipes (Don’t worry Food Network Magazine, you’re still my #1). The magazine covers everything from simple organization around the home to simple, classy clothing (an area I…

Chicken Dinner for One

The Russian is away on a business trip this week, so I’m cooking for one (and being a bit lazy). I love roasted chicken but wasn’t invested in taking the time to roast one, so I decided to pick up a rotisserie chicken from my local Shaw’s. Only three bucks for a quarter of dark…
