Duet: Banana Bread / Avett Brothers “The Carpenter”

The food: Almost every week, we buy a bunch of bananas … and almost every week we have at least a few that get too ripe before we eat them. Instead of wasting the overdone fruit, I use them in bread. After all, other than the bananas, this recipe uses baking staples everyone typically has in the pantry (cheap!). Banana bread is one of my favorite things, so[…]

Duet: Mexican Street Corn / John Prine “Bruised Orange”

The food: About a year ago, I ate Mexican street corn for the first time … and fell in love.

We also learned a bit about Mann’s new Culinary Cuts products, fresh-packed sweet potatoes[…]

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[…]
