Chicken Piccata

Posted on February 22, 2008

It’s been almost a week since I last posted something here. It seems my entire family has gone into retrograde and I have been nursing everyone back to health for the last month –including myself. The nasty flu that blew through Colorado had me down for ten days straight. I haven’t had one that bad for quite a long time.

On a food note, I continue to be inspired by Elise over at simplyrecipes.com. Last week she posted a delicious […]

Rosemary Apple Chicken

Posted on November 4, 2007

Every Friday night, I roast a chicken. My children are willing to consume any chicken dish as long as it contains fruit. Such is our unspoken agreement.

This past week, I used apples to lure my children to their protein dish. The combination of rosemary with apples was a natural pairing and the balsamic vinegar, which caramelized during roasting, sweetly permeated the entire chicken.

As I served this up to my family and asked how they liked it, my younger son […]

Peach Chicken

Fall is a full time of year; especially for a Jewish family with children in a Waldorf school. Last week we celebrated Rosh Hashannah (Jewish New Year), yesterday was Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement) and this coming Friday is Succot, the fall harvest festival celebrating the bounty provided to the Jews during 40 years wandering the dessert after the Exodus from Egypt. Whew.

During this time of year the Jewish holidays come unremittingly, like waves beating against the shore, […]

Chicken Salad with Almonds

Posted on August 29, 2007

Tonight’s project was a gluten free chicken salad with almonds.

Even though the days of August are long and hot, the month seems to speed by every year, and this year has been no different.

Today the boys started school and my older son had his first viola lesson. He locked the viola case to keep his little brother out. When we arrived at the lesson, he realized that he had forgotten the key, leaving it at home in its “secret […]

Chicken Parmesan

Posted on March 21, 2007

Each year my husband requests a special dish for his birthday. Last year it was chicken parmigiano.

Classic chicken parmesan goes gluten free when chicken breasts are coated in almond flour. This chicken recipe can be a staple in every gluten free chefs repertoire.

Even though we are on different diets, in my home we partake in one family meal. This way, we come together energetically – we share the same space, breathe the same air and eat the same food.

My […]

Orange Ginger Chicken

Posted on January 30, 2007

You missed the Orange Ginger Chicken…

This Paleo/primal-friendly Orange Ginger Chicken recipe is a great way to roast an entire chicken. The recipe is also child friendly –Orange Ginger Chicken is my younger son’s all time favorite dinner recipe.

My husband called and said he had to work late tonight. However, the boys and I were much too hungry to wait. So, before we ate, I snapped a photo of dinner and emailed it to him. I kept a plate […]
