  • Chicken and rice with summer vegetables

    Chicken and rice with summer vegetables

    We’ve been getting amazing organic vegetables all summer long in our CSA box from Driftless Organics. Our latest new discovery has been Romanesco broccoli. It has so far proven to be amazing in everything, from simply roasted vegetables (where it lends a peppery, beefy flavor to the mix) to a quick sauté in this dish. [...]

  • Plank-grilled chicken with honey, mustard, horseradish glaze

    Plank-grilled chicken with honey, mustard, horseradish glaze

    I recently ordered some new cedar grilling planks from Northwest Plank Company and wanted to test them out (quick tip: the grilling planks you can buy at home improvement and other retail stores are grossly over-priced: NW Plank sells 20 individual serving-size planks for $20; at the retail stores you’ll buy three for $8). Tonight’s [...]

  • Recipe Review: Braised Chicken Thighs and Legs

    Recipe Review: Braised Chicken Thighs and Legs

    My mom tried this recipe a few weeks ago and suggested we give it a try. Like her, I have a plethora of recipes bookmarked, copied, saved, earmarked and so on, which is where she found it (bookmarked after seeing it on the Today Show). We’ve been into planning menus lately, which is great because [...]

  • Creamed Chicken and Biscuits

    Creamed Chicken and Biscuits

    I was fortunate to know two of my four great-grandmothers when I was growing up and have some fond memories of meals I had at their homes, including the best tasting oatmeal for breakfast. Really, how can it NOT be the best tasting oatmeal when it is covered with brown sugar, whole milk and half-and-half. [...]

  • Take that, Double Down.

    Take that, Double Down.

    I didn’t intend to cook a take on the KFC Double Down sandwich the other night, but about midway through I realized I was. One of the things I love most about cooking is that you can improvise as you go, as long as you know the basic techniques. This recipe is far from technique-intensive, [...]

  • Mood Cooking – Hot Stir-fry

    Mood Cooking – Hot Stir-fry

    I came home from work the other night as, what some of my coworkers would say, an angry bird. For some unknown reason, I was in a bad mood and I decided to take my mood out on some stir-fry.

  • Grown-up chicken fingers and hot sauce

    Grown-up chicken fingers and hot sauce

    I didn’t feel much like putting together a fancy meal for Sunday night. After all, we had spent most of the weekend in the kitchen doing various things, and I was anxious to just get off my feet. The start of this meal was my “hot sauce.” And, of course, the Panko-breaded chicken “fingers” were [...]

    A Variation of Chicken Saltimbocca and Jessie’s Vegetable Hash

    We recently celebrated a milestone at the HouseOFoodies – Bryan turned 30. For this big birthday, he requested a quiet meal at home and I obliged. To start, I picked up a bottle of real champagne – Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin, Brut. It was delicious and made the other sparkling wines we’ve been sipping pale in [...]

  • Lemon-Garlic Chicken

    Lemon-Garlic Chicken

    We went out and did some shopping this afternoon, finishing our shopping day by visiting a new grocery store. In the meat section, they had some delicious and fresh-looking chicken quarters at a great price: $4.77 for 3 1/2 pounds (4 leg quarters). They also had some pretty fresh-looking lemons. As usual, I made this [...]

  • Saturday Night Improv: Chorizo-stuffed chicken breast

    Saturday Night Improv: Chorizo-stuffed chicken breast

    I spent the afternoon in the kitchen making homemade butter and pickling kumquats, so when it came time for dinner, I wanted to improv something quick and tasty. The result was good enough that Jessie said I should blog it. That doesn’t happen very often with my improvisations. Here’s a hard and fast rule: If [...]

  • Quick chicken tacos with salsa verde

    Quick chicken tacos with salsa verde

    Back from a great trip out to visit family in Montana (will post at least something from that trip soon), and decided to make something quick tonight. Jessie was thawing out a chicken breast when I got home, so I was pretty much stuck with using that protein (OK, not “stuck,” I actually like cooking [...]
