Dry Brined and Smoked Whole Turkey Recipe

Dry Brined and Smoked Whole Turkey Recipe

Traditional oven roasted whole turkey is the fail safe for most American homes when it comes to Thanksgiving (or any celebratory event that warrants roasting an entire turkey to feed a lot of people). There’s a reason for that and it’s because for the most part, oven roasting a turkey is a safe as well as … Continue reading

Lightly Fried and Baked Scotch Eggs Recipe

Lightly Fried and Baked Scotch Eggs Recipe

If you’ve ever thought about making breakfast in a more compact, portable, and delicious way, then the Scotch egg is the miracle product for you. It basically takes eggs, sausage, and toast and turns them into a singular, egg-shaped food delivery system. The crispy outside contrasts with the sausage, which in turn contrasts with the softer … Continue reading

White Bean Chicken Chili Recipe

White Bean Chicken Chili Recipe

Few foods are as comforting a really good bowl of chili and every region has their own special take on it. For example, in Texas, chili means just meat and spices, where in other parts of the country, chili can have beans or other ingredients in it. Some believe that chili should only be made with … Continue reading

Negra Modelo Beer and Food Pairing (Recipes Included!)

Negra Modelo Beer and Food Pairing (Recipes Included!)

A representative for Negra Modelo Beer contacted me and asked if I would like a free blogger kit that I could use to throw a party for my friends that featured Negra Modelo food pairings. These pairings would support Negra Modelo’s “Perfect Complement” campaign (#theperfectcomplement). As someone that already enjoys Negra Modelo, I agreed to … Continue reading

Smoky Chicken Sliders Recipe

Smoky Chicken Sliders Recipe

When you live in an apartment, you often don’t have a grill. That is a pain I have suffered for many years. Grilling on a stove top isn’t the same and using an electric indoor grill is a nightmare if you don’t want your clothes smelling like meat for a week. Most people also can’t … Continue reading

Extra Crispy Chicken Tenders

Extra Crispy Chicken Tenders

I freaking love chicken tenders. Especially dipping them in different sauces to change up their flavors. I don’t know why, but I do. Frankly, I’m not sure I even need to explain myself, so take me as I am! While looking around online, I saw a baked Chicken Tender recipe that caught my eye from … Continue reading

Goat Cheese and Arugula Pizza (with Chicken)

Goat Cheese and Arugula Pizza (with Chicken)

While out with some friends in Providence, RI, we had dinner at Union Station Brewery (owned by John Harvard’s Brewery and Ale House).  The food was decent, but one of the dishes, a personal arugula and goat cheese white pizza made me want to try re-creating it at home. I didn’t go with a white … Continue reading

Chicken Parmigiana (Chicken Parmesan)

Chicken Parmigiana (Chicken Parmesan)

It’s time for a classic.  Chicken Parmagiana (or Chicken Parmesan, however you spell it).  I love this almost cliché dish.  It is the guilty-pleasure touchstone upon which I judge all Italian-American restaurants.  If a restaurant can’t make a good chicken parm then there’s something wrong. It’s such a simple dish, but it is definitely one … Continue reading

Chicken Marsala

Chicken Marsala

I wasn’t always the biggest chicken Marsala fan after tasting the mass produced, overcooked, dry version at my college cafeteria.  It is super easy to make though and can hit the spot when you want a little Italian in your life (insert “that’s what she said” joke here).  I can’t take full credit for this … Continue reading
