This week Central Market had the most beautiful local portabella mushroom caps on display.  Though I’ve never been able to pull off the portabella burger (it’s a texture thing), I absolutely love the flavor of cooked portabellas.  This super fast sauce created from roasted chicken pan juices and a little whiskey was the perfect way […]

Blasted tech support.  I spent the whole day yesterday trying to get this post onto my site.  Someone asked me for a chicken tetrazzini recipe.  I can’t remember who it was, SMIL perhaps?  Someone else?  I haven’t made this in ages, so it took me awhile to track it down.  I don’t think I’ve attempted […]

It’s been an absurdly long time since I posted a new recipe.  It really wasn’t intentional; I’ve just been doing other things.  Many people asked if I stopped cooking or was quitting the blog.  As for cooking, no I haven’t stopped, just suffered from a lull in creativity and perhaps from over committing.  As for […]

My sister had the recipe for college chicken casserole on an index card in her recipe box.  The original source was a Cooking Light magazine issue from May 1998.  Some time during the last decade, her index card was spilled on and only partially legible.  Luckily, nearly everything survives on the Internet.  I found a […]

I’m having the most amazing time in the mountains and also totally kicking myself for not walking around with my camera glued to my arm.  I promise to do better.  Last night I went to a wine tasting at Tuscany in Salt Lake City.  Everyone in Utah is so unbelievably friendly, and contrary to some […]

This recipe came from a Williams-Sonoma Simple Classics Cookbook, which appallingly, Williams-Sonoma seems to no longer sell. I have cooked the bulk of recipes from this book, and with the exception of a disastrous Baked Sea Bass with Fennel many years ago, this book is chalk full of solid dishes. I’ve made this recipe more […]
