FFwD: Chicken Tagine with Sweet Potatoes and Prunes (Figs)

French Fridays with Dorie Chicken Tagine with Sweet Potatoes and Prunes (Figs)

French Fridays this week features a tagine, which is a dish that I love. This one has chicken and sweet potatoes, along with prunes or…hmmm, let’s maybe just say figs. That’s what I had already, so that’s what I used for the dish (and these Around my French Table recipes do seem to be fairly forgiving ingredient substitution).

I do look forward to making tagines on account of my super-awesome Emile Henry tagine (the result of a gift card to Sur la Table), so . . . → Read More: FFwD: Chicken Tagine with Sweet Potatoes and Prunes (Figs)

Ninja Cooking System: Lemon Chicken with Rosemary

Ninja Cooking System Lemon Chicken with Rosemary

Last August, I attended the International Food Bloggers Conference* in Portland, OR (a short 20 block trip) and had a really wonderful time. Lots of interesting and useful sessions (some with wine!), met some new food people, reconnected with some food bloggers I mainly knew from the online world and….got a free Ninja Cooking System!

The Ninja Cooking System is sort of like a crockpot that also sears, steams and oven roasts food. You can set it for slow cooking or stove top cooking and I have to admit, . . . → Read More: Ninja Cooking System: Lemon Chicken with Rosemary

Cedar Plank Coho Salmon

Cedar Plank Coho Salmon

This recipe is really delicious and unique (is cedar planked salmon still unique? Let’s go with a yes). It was a bit of an experiment with the last, small piece of my awesome Copper River Coho Salmon. We were actually grilling a whole different meal (Pork Chops) and decided at the last minute* to throw a small piece of the salmon on the grill while the chops were resting. I just happened to have cedar planks and everything else so it worked out perfect.

I’ve used my cedar planks in the oven . . . → Read More: Cedar Plank Coho Salmon

Grilled Pork Chops with Anise Seed Rub and Peach Mojo

Grilled Pork Chops with Anise Seed Rub and Peach Mojo

The end of summer, huh…then how come we are still in the 80’s? Hopefully, this will be the last week of that and we’ll start to see more proper fall weather (cool and sunny). But in the meantime, I guess it’s still nice to be able to haul the grill out of the garage and whip up some succulent pork chops with a sweet and spicy peach sauce. Especially when the pepper in the sauce came from your own garden.

FFwd: Eggplant “Tartine” with Tomatoes, Olives, and Cucumber

Eggplant Tartine with Tomatoes, Olives and Cucumbers

Wow! Well, I think I have found my most favorite French Fridays with Dorie ever! And that’s so surprising because I didn’t think this would be anything special at all. Something about the eggplant and vegetables and shaved cucumber slices that all just really worked together. I dunno…maybe it’s just olive oil-vinegar-herb-grill pan magic.

Speaking of grill panning, that is one thing I did differently, as we’re having a bit of a heat wave and here’s just no way I could have turned on my oven. Not even . . . → Read More: FFwd: Eggplant “Tartine” with Tomatoes, Olives, and Cucumber
