Answer the question: “What should I make for dinner tonight?” with this easy, quick, and healthy rice salad. Filled with fresh apples, kale, cranberries, sunflower seeds, and chicken, this salad will become a family favorite.
Ever wonder what the secret to juicy chicken is? Well, I have it for you. Start with a generous coating of mayonnaise to seal in all of the natural juices. Roll in gluten free breadcrumbs, Italian herbs, and parmesan cheese for the perfect, crispy coating. Perfection every single time.
I love veggies, and among my favorite is broccolini. Broccolini is not baby broccoli, instead it is a hybrid of broccoli and Chinese kale created back in the 1990’s. This is NOT some genetic engineering product. It is a product of slow cross pollination efforts – that’s what all hybrid plants are.
On a foodie level, this time of the year is a little bitter sweet. While I am ready to say goodbye to the long, cold winter, I am hesitant to say goodbye to my fall and winter cooking. My dinged up, decades old stock pot receives plenty of love and use over the course of those six months. So many hearty, heart-warming, slow-cooked soups, sauces, and family favorites have emerged from it. Their scents have filled our home and taken the chill from the air. They’ve put the comfort in food.
My family loves the winter, but living in the Northeast sometimes means cold and occasionally bone chilling temperatures. My husband works outside nearly all day. When he arrives home, thoroughly chilled to the core, there is little that hits the spot better than a hearty, piping hot bowl of soup.
