Let me start right out by saying that I totally understand that not everyone is a chicken liver person (looking at you, Southern husband) so before you head off, check out this recipe for a delectable salmon spread instead. But if you ARE a chicken liver person (raises hand) this is my mama’s utterly decadent, buttery chicken liver pate that she makes every Christmas. And every Christmas I take care of both my share and the Southern husband’s share. So if you are in the market for an easy, scrumptious chicken liver pate, look no further because you have FOUND IT. Let’s make it!
Chicken and lemon, lemon and chicken. It’s a match made in heaven as far as I am concerned, and I cook them up together in every way I can think of. And one of my favorite ways is chicken piccata, so I need to think up as many versions as possible. In this case, I’ve added just a teeny bit of cream to the recipe, which has magically transformed regular chicken piccata into easy creamy chicken piccata. Can you say, super simple, dreamy, just in time for the holidays dinner? Let’s make it!
I named this recipe Summer’s End Pasta not to make us all sad that yes, summer is winding down (and I have to admit, I am looking forward to those first cool mornings of fall!) but to remind all of us that now is the time to take advantage of this glorious moment when the local corn, tomatoes and herbs are all in season all at the same time! Toss in some bacon and some creamy ricotta cheese and you have a summer pasta dish that you’ll remember all the way until next Memorial Day. Ready to put those summer veggies to work? Let’s make it!
Scallops are the Southern husband’s favorite, and lemon is the Southern husband’s favorite. Butter and cheese are two of my favorites, so I knew if I put all of these things together in one light and lovely recipe for scallops in lemon butter sauce, I pretty much couldn’t go wrong. And bonus points – this recipe takes about 15 minutes tops from walking into your kitchen to sitting down at your table (I love it when that happens!). Ready for dinner party deliciousness that is quick enough for a Monday school night? Let’s make it!
It has been quite an exciting week around these parts! As I write, we have just over 300 days to go before the Southern daughter goes down that aisle with her honey, and so we are in Full Wedding Planning Mode. I rotate between excitement and overwhelmed-ness and joy and happy tears, sometimes all in the same 5 minute period, and that is a perfect time to have a supper like this creamy lemon pasta on hand. Easy, just a little bit decadent, and with all the pretty springtime colors of an early spring wedding. Ready for a plateful of pasta happiness? Let’s make it!
I love this recipe for potato leek soup, not just because it is all kinds of nutritious and delicious, but because it is one of my “harbinger of spring” recipes. Which in other words means that it’s one of the first things I can make in the spring with local ingredients – in this case leeks, which are one of my favorite spring veggies. This soup is as easy as sautéing up some leeks with potatoes, sweet onions, chicken broth and a few other things, and then whirling it into soup perfection in your blender.
