Chicken Posole Soup

What’s this? Two posts in a row? Yep. I had to write about this recipe I tried yesterday and you know my family are the guinea pigs of all my cooking experiments. This was no different. Several shocking things occurred. 1. My onion-hating son ate more than half a bowl knowing there were diced onions in … Continue reading

Chicken Cacciatore

Once again it’s cooking class time for me. The month of January has been filled with one class after another. I do enjoy every minute of the classes.

Mock Gyros with Chicken and Homemade Pitas

I took off all the good meat left on the chicken and mixed it with some olive oil, garlic, oregano, salt and pepper. I made homemade pita bread and Tzatziki sauce, … Continue reading
