The Best Crockpot Shredded Chicken

The Best Crockpot Shredded Chicken

One of my “secret weapons” all these years has been my coveted collection of “master recipes”. A master recipe is one singular recipe that serves as the starter or inspiration for many other recipes. In my opinion, a master recipe needs to be a no-brainer. […]

Ginger – Chicken Lettuce Wraps, Scenes from Kentucky and Felix Mendelssohn

Most days, I wake up not knowing what I’ll cook. Most days, I find inspiration in the market as I meander around. I always have a list of “necessaries”. Today I had to pick up dish soap, and tea, and a pair of size 11 […]

Turkey-Lentil Tostadas

Lentils are like the humble little monks of the food world.  Small, plain, unassuming….cloaked in their earthy brown habits and the little white sash around their waists.  By all appearances, lentils are meek.  You’d think they’d be boring. You’d think you’d be able to “figure them out” based on their […]
