Chicken & Grilled Peaches Drizzled with Champagne Vinaigrette

Chicken & Grilled Peaches Drizzled with Champagne Vinaigrette

As the warm summer months fade into memory, your opportunities to enjoy grilled meals outside start to dwindle. But don’t despair! There is still plenty of time to enjoy your favorite grilled foods before the chilly bite of winter forces you back inside. I’m using the last of my stash of southern peaches for a quick and delicious healthy fall salad. Using a rotisserie chicken sets the stage for an easy and filling weeknight meal, while the warmth of the...

Do Not Marinate that London Broil!!

If there is one thing on this planet that makes me a happy girl it’s beef! Particularly, that of the steak genre. But {sigh} filet mignon, my absolute fav, gets pretty pricey for an average joe such as myself {sigh again} and is generally reserved for very special occasions. So I must resort to cheaper cuts of beef, when on sale, to satisfy my cravings.  My two favorites are london broil and sirloin by default. I would buy this luscious...

Chicken Liver Pate

I have read many articles on the internet concerning the health benefits of organ meats. Now, it’s not that I wasn’t aware of the nutrient density of organ meats as I have always loved organ meats especially those found in chicken and grew up eating them.

That’s how ground beef smelled when I was kid! I know, it...

Heavenly and Healthy Chicken Soup

If  heaven existed in a bowl this would be it!  I made this last night for dinner and it was truly delish! I’ve made a lot of chicken soup in my life but I think by adding coconut water it took this soup over the top! I have to be honest here … a funny little story … last week I purchase a couple of containers of coconut water. I have been reading about all the nutritional benefits and wanted...

Why Bone Stock you ask?!

I haven’t always been an advocate for homemade chicken, fish and beef stock. I was one of those who just bought the chicken and beef stock in the paper containers and granules in the jars. I use stock for everything soups, sauces, and I replace water for stock when cooking rice. The list goes on. But one day a few years ago … I realized I was spending soooo much money on store-bought stock that there had to be another...
