I've got chicken marinating for a new (to me at least) recipe...

Buttermilk Chicken.

3.5lbs chicken pieces (bone in, skin on)

2 cups buttermilk

2 tablespoons fresh chopped dill

zest of 1 lemon

salt & pepper

Marinate at least 8 hours...up to 24. Discard marinade. Bake at 450 degrees F until cooked through.

I bought chicken on sale and since my freezer is a little full at the moment I need to use it up. This recipe was blissfully simple (I have been attempting some more complicated dishes and honestly was getting a little sick of being in the kitchen!)

I'll add in some sort of potatoes, veg and a salad.

UPDATE: The chicken was really juicy but bland. I won't be making this again...

So not my weekend for cooking, i somehow ruined all but one pancake.... Me thinks it might be the stove and the fact that i'm not used to it, as i've only been here for a little over a month.

-depressed-

AAAWWW...so sorry, I hate figuring out new stoves!

That pizza sounds great. I think I'm finally gonna order some Venice crusts this week to try and see how that goes. My husband is a complete jerk. He is making me drink orange juice because it'll help me get better he says. It may as well be battery acid I'm pouring onto the back of my throat. I do feel mildly better though, I'm coughing less and my fever broke so maybe his battery acid is working. I'm totally going to have that soup for supper when he gets home and I can make him open the can. I don't know what he's having and frankly I don't think I have the energy to care today. I am so not going to get my pretzels chocolate dipped in time for my new video game on Tuesday.

I've never heard of the Venice crusts. Have you had them before? How are they?

I'm glad you are feeling better.

I miss the gas stove we used to have. I never burnt anything on it >.> bahumbug electric stoves

I won't have electric :ph34r::blink: can't cook on them, everything boils over or you turn it down too soon and it doesn't come to the boil :ph34r:

Crunchy oat chicken (oats, tapioca flour, corn meal, garlic, brown sugar, curry, ginger, sea salt and pepper)

Roasted carrots (olive oil, sea salt, pepper)

Roasted red potatoes )olive oil, sea salt, pepper)

I have a yeast infection. How do you get a yeasty beast while on VSL #3, 250 billion live culture probiotics???

I was so shocked, that I went to the doctor today and had it cultured to make darn sure it really was yeast, and it is....GGGGRRRRR...I hate yeast, I've been plagued with it since age 14! I was put on my best buddy, Diflucin once again.

oh ouch :/ I've never had one -knocks on wood hard-

Any way, my no onion version came out well. I didn't add it because my hand started burning when i was peeling it (?!?!?!). It may have been because i had to handwash some pans and whatnot with bleach and soap before (like 10 or so minutes). But yeah, my cautious side said no, and i placed it in a bag in the fridge.

Our final clean-out-the-fridge meal before we leave for Paris tomorrow!! So, we had a conglomeration of things including:

- green rice (rice infused with herbed roasted poblanos)

- celeriac braised in white wine with shallots

- grilled wild boar sausage

- steamed broccoli

- zebra tomatoes from the garden

Seems like a green theme going on...

Have a great month, everyone! We're gone for exactly four lovely weeks. I can't wait to report back on our wondrous Parisian meals (we're going to some pretty spanky spots) and Croatian finds.

Have a safe journey. (and eat a few extra bites of everything for me and describe it to me in full detail later so I can drool on my laptop.) Enjoy yourself, B! ;) xx

Last night, we had quinoa pasta with portabella mushroom ragout.

Tonight (because it is Friday!!)... it's pizza night.

Had some of those gorgeous portabellas left, so I made a quick tomato sauce, with basil and oregano and thyme from the garden and sauteed some bellas and shallots and did a 3-cheese pizza.

it's baking now....smells okay so far. :)

It's only been a day, and I have to say, I miss Lovey's dinner posts.

Mine seem so "blah" in comparison. :lol:

I just feel more like a newbie posting here, but here it goes. I had a baked potato with scrambled eggs, guava juice and for dessert a bar of soy chocolate.

Hubs was craving a sandwich so he managed to drag me away from my video game where I was furiously working on my in game cooking. I was gathering stuff to cook. We had to shop to to make sandwiches. <_< I guess I pretty much do the same things in my video game that I do in real life. :lol:

We made some mac and cheese and ham sandwiches with some Chobani for dessert. I picked up a loaf of Udi's chia bread which makes a really tasty sandwich toasted.

Since I am learning to do my own food, I have decided to do some beefs for dinner. As in myself alone in the kitchen. So my dinner was beef and a salad.

And it was good. Success!

Sounds good, what did you use for salad dressing? I haven't been Dairy Free very long and was a huge fan of homemade buttermilk ranch dressing. I haven't had a salad since sadly having to give-up dairy.

I do not have a recipe exactly, I made it up as I went along, but

it's sort of like this:

http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/Rigatoni-with-Mushroom-Ragu-231652

There's a recipe for one in the Joy Of Cooking too. I saw it online, but I can't post the link here. (it's the A...n.com site and they spam us)

The version I made omitted the tomatoes (and I add sherry :) ) and I let it thicken a bit so it's very "stewish" and toss the cooked pasta in it. Some shaved parmigiano- reggiano on top and you're good to go.

Tasted even better day 2. (like most things, I guess)

Quick and delish.
