Double Peach Chicken

January 10, 2018

My first recipe of 2018! It’s a good one, inspired by a recipe I found on the back of a bottle, and then forgot about for months!

Last September, I went hiking with friends, to a rocky coastline still littered with debris from a shipwreck that happened 50 years ago. (Read about it here!) We went to lunch afterwards, and I was intrigued by the recipe for Peachy Chicken that I found on the back of the bottle of Heinz malt vinegar on our table. So I snapped a photo of the recipe.

I forgot all about the photo until recently, when I was Read the rest of this entry »

Yes, I Roasted More Beans. No, This Post Isn’t a Rerun.

January 20, 2017

A little while ago, I shared my easy-peasy recipe for roasted garbanzo beans. This post is another roasted bean recipe… but with different beans. So ignore that sense of deja vu, because this post isn’t a rerun. It’s more like a sequel. Or, to use Hollywood vernacular, it’s a ‘reboot’ or a ‘reimagining.’

The beans I roasted this time were black eyed peas (which are in fact Read the rest of this entry »

Deviled eggs are the best. I love them. I can’t remember the last time I made them – it’s been that long. So I stayed up late Saturday night deviling the crap out of a whole of eggs. I bought Read the rest of this entry »
