Boneless, skinless chicken breasts are literally THE white meat of the meat world. They are a great lean protein, quick and easy to prepare, freeze well, and take to just about any flavor or cuisine you care for. But they also can be rather dull. So we've come up with three ways to jazz up this weeknight staple.
Don’t ever go shopping on an empty stomach.
Some 4 million Puerto Ricans live in the continental U.S. these days. And we have them to thank for making some of my favorite foods — such as mofongo — easier to find.
I'm about to celebrate my 66th birthday, which got me thinking about aging and what, in terms of health, my future may hold. I've been fortunate so far, since: I've never undergone surgery; my blood pressure continues to be normal; I only require glasses to read and peer at my computer screen and still have most of my almost gray-free hair.
When The Kid was home, I made a big batch of pink sauce studded with Italian sausage. I like Gunnoe’s, but haven’t seen it in stores for years. Now I buy sausage at Costco. The sauce calls for about twelve links, but because it came from Costco, I have enough left in my freezer to open my own sandwich stand at the next state fair.
Sometimes it seems that just as we get ourselves fully into summer mode, we need to start thinking back to school! Oh, no!
Tim Smith, the clandestine star of Discovery's unexpected reality hit "Moonshiners," doesn't have anything against the growing legion of legal distillers who are plying their brands at your local liquor store.
I was going to be a judge at Duke Homestead for its Pork, Pickles, and Peanuts festival, but I had some concerns.
Keeping packed lunches fast and easy doesn't have to condemn you to a day-after-day-after-day PB&J. If you're willing to be a little creative, it's easy to find fast, simple and delicious lunches that will keep both the lunch packer and eater healthy and happy.
When I was a kid, my mom’s potato salad was so good she never attempted cold cucumbers in sour cream, which turned out to be a good thing since I found that salad as unappetizing as I did sauerkraut or rutabagas. I didn’t escape that salad easily, though, because during the summer we regularly dined at grandma’s house, where a big bowl of those cold cucumbers in sour cream were always on her warm weather menu. I shunned her cucumbers, even though Grandma said they were “soooo” good. To me, they looked watery and limp and tasted sour like vinegar. Ugh.
I’ve long been intrigued by the notion of a pub crawl. But I’m a shockingly cheap drunk. So after the first half of the first spirituous libation, I’d be dancing on top of the table, closely followed by napping underneath it.
Energy drinks are busting out of the convenience store cooler and into the health food aisle.
