Duet: Moist Roasted Chicken / Trampled by Turtles “Stars and Satellites”

The food: When it comes to protein, I prefer red meat. Unfortunately, that’s not the healthiest choice. Chicken is a smarter option, but unless it’s part of a cheesy pasta dish, I don’t really like it. I tend to overcook grilled or baked chicken out of fear of undercooking it, leaving it dry and lacking flavor. Desperate to find a way to make chicken a regular—and welcome—part[…]

My mom was right (don’t tell her I said that): Why buy what[…]

Chocolate Covered Strawberry Truffles / Simon and Garfunkel “Bridge Over Troubled Water”

The food: A lot of the food I make for this blog is the product of me wanting to learn something new. I’ve never made truffles, but I love chocolate. I mean, I really love chocolate. After some reading, I realized truffles are pretty damn simple to make. Melt some cream, butter, and chocolate, then add in whatever flavor you want (I[…]
