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 do love a good sheet pan chicken dinner! First of all, it is a great way to get a flavorful combination of chicken and veggies together in one easy to make supper. Second of all, because it is a sheet pan dinner there is exactly ONE pan to wash after supper is over. And while I am always happy to make my traditional sheet pan dinner of chicken with carrots and broccoli, sometimes I want to be a little more splashy, sheet pan chicken-wise.
So with that, I bring you this zingy recipe for Mediterranean sheet pan chicken. Ready to spice up your chicken dinner? Let’s make it!
I really did want to title this post “Welsh Rabbit,” since that is the name that this recipe often goes by, but I was afraid you would think I had gone and cooked up some small woodland creatures. But don’t worry, no bunnies were harmed in the making of this old-fashioned country dish.
In its most basic form, it is a slice of bread doused in melted cheese…but you know I can’t leave well enough alone, and so my version includes a thick slice of tomato, some beer and Worcestershire sauce stirred into the melted cheese (Vermont cheddar of course), some chopped parsley. And bacon. Because I think I have firmly established that every recipe is better with bacon. Right? Right! 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!
