Egg salad is one of those dishes I often forget about. Both Jeff and I have memories of eating it in our sandwiches as kids, neither of us loving it. But once in a while, I have a bunch of hard boiled eggs on my hands, and I remember. It turns out that I kind […]

Whole Roasted Chicken with Lemon & Rosemary

Roasting a whole chicken is one of the first things a home cook should learn, in my opinion.  First of all, it’s really much simpler than you’d expect– and you end up with a confidence-inspiring presentation for your table.  Roasting a chicken fills your home with warm, delicious smells, and then provides you with another […]

Thai Grilled Chicken With Lemongrass, Basil and Lime

Which sorts of flavors do you crave when it’s hot out?  For me, it’s a tie between Central American and Southeast Asian.  And we’ve been alternating the two at our house lately.  Yesterday I had an intense craving for some pungent Asian flavors.  But I wanted something light– not like curry, but more reminiscent of […]
