Guest blog: Crispy chicken with golden raisin and butternut squash compote

Published on February 13, 2011, by in Recipes.

First of all, I need to thank Stacey for the incredible opportunity to write for Spatoola. I’ve enjoyed reading and cooking many of her recipes, and I’m glad she enjoys my food enough to ask me to write a guest post for her blog. This January, I had the pleasure of cooking dinner for Stacey and Brian while I was in Chicago for an away elective. Knowing that Stacey and Brian are experienced foodies with discriminative taste buds, and keeping in mind their healthy cooking styles, I looked high and low for a recipe that was both healthy and tasty. Unfortunately, this excluded many of my recipes from Ina Garten, but I eventually discovered this gem from Food and Wine Magazine: Crispy Chicken with Golden Raisin and Butternut Squash Compote (adapted from Food and Wine Magazine): 1 tablespoon olive oil 6 chicken thighs with skin 2 tablespoons unsalted butter 5

Apple and Sage Pork Chops

Published on February 6, 2011, by in Recipes.

I’m from Iowa: the land of pork. I like bacon and ham and pulled pork but have always been a little resistant to the pork chop. I decided to give it another try when I stumbled upon this recipe in the Feb 2011 issue of Food Network Magazine. Adapted from Food Network Magazine: Ingredients: 4 1/2 inch thick pork loin chops(mine were slightly less than 4 oz each) 2 teaspoons chopped fresh sage 3 tsp extra-virgin olive oil 2 Honeycrisp apples, cut into 1/2 inch pieces 1 large red onion, cut into 1/2 inch wedges 3/4 cup apple cider salt and pepper Rub both sides of the pork chop with the sage, salt and pepper to taste. Heat a large skillet over high heat, add 1 tsp of olive oil and sear pork chops until golden brown on both sides. About 5 minutes total. Set pork chops on a plate to

Blizzard butter

Published on February 1, 2011, by in Recipes.

During the holidays I am always lured in by the sales on cans of mixed nuts. However, I rarely eat nuts. So, I inevitably have one unopened can of mixed nuts and one can that has been opened and a few choice nuts picked out of it. I got off of work early tonight and don’t have to go in until later tomorrow because of this big, bad blizzard we are having in Chicago. This is the time that I need to say “thank you” to my friend Emily for driving me home from work tonight. Otherwise, I would have had to walk home in the blizzard because nothing else is running. Emily might sound familiar to you, because she is the one that made me this! Because Emily was kind enough to drive me home, I was able to get bored enough to want to do something with these

Multi-tasking at its finest

Published on January 21, 2011, by in Update.

Today I made bread while I was at yoga. You might think that a hot, moist 105f bikram room is the perfect place to let your bread rise, and it might be. But, that isn’t where my bread rose. I dumped all the ingredients into my bread machine BEFORE I went to bikram. When I came home, a hot, fresh loaf of bread was waiting for me. I’m secretly jealous(now publicly jealous) of people who make their own bread. I will make real bread one day, but for now, I just don’t have the time or patience. So, the bread machine is my speedy friend. This is the second time that I have used this particular recipe. It’s simple, gluten-free and perfect for sandwiches. I got the recipe off the back of Pamela’s Gluten Free Bread Mix from Whole Foods. I eat more than my fair share of gluten, but have been
