green spätzle with grape tomatoes + homemade chicken nuggets

I’m not vegetarian anymore, but I still hung on to my half-dozen Vegetarian Times magazine troupe. One particular edition from January/February 2015 features ways to eat more greens in the new year. What better way to get in some more greens than in deliciously chewy dumpling noodles!? When my family lived in Germany, I wasContinue reading “green spätzle with grape tomatoes + homemade chicken nuggets”

chick ‘n’ masala and homemade bone broth

This was my very first time EVER cooking a whole chicken! I know the recipe says to use a poussin, but the butcher I go to only had chickens. So chicken is what we ate. Also, if you’re like me and have no clue what a poussin is other than a funny word, it’s apparentlyContinue reading “chick ‘n’ masala and homemade bone broth”

chicken burrito bowls in the instant pot

Do you have an instant pot or an instapot too? Do you absolutely love yours too? I love mine because I usually forget to defrost meat before I want to cook it. So this little appliance is a total time-saver for me. And the fact that it can pressure cook, slow cook and saute inContinue reading “chicken burrito bowls in the instant pot”

crispy chicken schnitzel + roasted veggies

When we lived in Germany, my sister and I would almost always order the schnitzel and pommes when we would go out to eat. Breaded & fried meat with fried potatoes – what better meal for a little kid, especially when everything else on the menu looks weird! So when I invited my sister, herContinue reading “crispy chicken schnitzel + roasted veggies”

Golden Beet Borscht + Smeared Chicken Breast

Welcome to another episode of Cooking from my Cookbooks! Yay! I have already consolidated my collection of cookbooks down by two. One was a tiny nutrition/diet book with recipes from a chiropractic office I used to work at. There’s barely any photos in it and the ones that are there are black-and-white and the recipesContinue reading “Golden Beet Borscht + Smeared Chicken Breast”
