Ginger Chicken with Yellow Squash

While we are at home and I am cooking more, finding something new is key to keeping us from getting bored or tired of the same old dishes. I do enjoy cooking, and developing new recipes.  I had this idea of making a stir fry style dish with chicken and yellow summer squash as a …

Za’Atar Chicken

I am always open to a new idea when it comes to cooking, and enjoy watching cooking shows on TV.  While watching Milk Street a couple of weekends ago, they demonstrated a new way of cooking chicken using a spice blend called za'atar.  I looked it up in my Milk Street cookbook, and was delighted …

White Wine Chicken and Mushrooms

I'm not big on white wine to just drink, but I do like to cook with it. The subtle flavor it adds to chicken is just wonderful. One thing I do know, never cook with a wine that you wouldn't drink from a glass. The stuff they sell as cooking wine in the grocery store …
