Chicken & wine

Our noses have a way of sniffing out nostalgia. Smell goes into the emotional parts of the brain and the memory parts, whereas words go into thinking parts of the brain. This could explain why memories sparked by smell feel nostalgic and emotional. I often say that we didn’t have a lot of food traditions […]

Chicken zucchini poppers with creamy garlic dip

This is the first recipe I ever published on this blog. I went to edit it the other day and somehow got lost in a foreign and scary editing world from which I could not return. The post had to be trashed and I had to start all over again. So here we go. A […]

Chicken Flautas

I know, I know, I almost NEVER post Mexican food on here.  But people, you do understand that I live in Mexico, where I can get cheap, fresh, and delicious Mexican food whenever I want, and sometimes, it’s as cheap as if I made it myself. But then I get to thinking ….. what if […]

Chicken Tikka Masala

This dish is a lot like Butter Chicken, but with a little less effort and ingredients.  I love spending time in the kitchen cooking and creating, but I also love whipping up a meal in under an hour that has the family begging for more.  Especially when it’s 42 degrees in my kitchen before the […]

When we had our little cafe here, a friend of ours asked if we could do something special for her. You see, she was a little older and single and really didn’t like cooking for one.  Would I be able to provide her with 7 meals a week, pre-packaged into individually sized potions and delivered […]

Butter Chicken

Why oh why is this dish so good? The cream? The spices? I don’t know.  All I know is I love it so. A few years back I heard a few of my friends having ‘Butter Chicken cook-offs”, so I knew I could get all the ingredients I needed here, but I never partook.  I […]

Noisy Chicken

When my husband and I discussed moving to Mexico almost 10 years ago, I was afraid.  We had two small children and although I always enjoyed trying new things and having adventures, I wasn’t ready to sell everything and live in a van down by the river drive down in a van to live on […]

Hungarian Chicken

Don’t be mad at me for saying this (especially if you’re a Canadian and it’s anywhere from December to March), but sometimes, just sometimes, I miss winter.  I miss snow lightly falling, fireplaces, coming into a warm house, stomping off the snow, getting some hot chocolate going to warm up the children, or turning the […]
