Spatchcock Chicken

Bursting with flavors and spices, Indian is one of my favorites. When Aric was deployed to South Korea and the boys and I went to visit, I had some […]

Creamy Rosemary Chicken

This year I chose to have a kitchen windowsill herb garden. I started out with basil, flat-leaf parsley, cilantro, and rosemary. It has been quite nice walking over to the window, clipping my couple of herbs, and throwing them into whatever dish I’m making. I don’t use rosemary too terribly often, but wanted to integrate […]
