Drunken Chicken and Potatoes #SundaySupper

by Anne Papina on April 27, 2014

The five-ingredient challenge–that’s the focus of this week’s #SundaySupper, and Alice over at Hip Foodie Mom is hosting. For me, this was a no-brainer–Auntie Marcie’s Drunken Chicken and Potatoes–a meal in a pan.

Chicken with Cashews (Balti Murgh)

by Anne Papina on April 13, 2014

I know, it’s been a while. A long while. A few weeks ago, my mom’s heart condition landed her in the hospital, and life has been a little topsy-turvey here since. Despite having my computer with me while I travel, I haven’t had the energy to post here. But this is an escape, and I […]

Stuffed Cornish Game Hens

by Anne Papina on February 11, 2014

It might surprise you to learn I’m not one to have a “signature” dish. Sure, I have my favorites, and certainly I have a number of specialties, but nothing you could call “Anne on a plate.” At one time, though, these stuffed Cornish game hens might have fit that bill. This is a dish my […]

Fabulous French Cassoulet #SundaySupper

by Anne Papina on October 6, 2013

As we drift into the cooler months, our thoughts turn to soups, stews … hearty one-pot meals that simmer all day and fill the house with the aroma of something decidedly good. This week’s #SundaySupper is dedicated to those recipes, and Amy over at Kimchi Mom is hosting. I had a hankering for this fabulous […]

San Diego Style Rolled Tacos #SundaySupper

by Anne Papina on August 25, 2013

In Southern California, there’s a food phenomenon known as the rolled taco. For whatever reason, “rolled tacos” are exclusive to SoCal. Sure, we see “taquitos” and “flautas” on menus all over, but really, they’re not the same (even if technically they are). Could be in the way they’re prepared–tightly rolled corn tortillas filled with beef […]

Clay Pot Chicken with 40 Cloves of Garlic

by Anne Papina on May 15, 2013

There’s something magical about the way a clay cooker effortlessly transforms a few simple ingredients into a guest-worthy meal. Take this chicken, for example–it’s irresistibly moist, and the meat is infused with the flavors of garlic, lemon, and thyme. Despite what seems to be an excessive amount of garlic, it never overpowers the dish. The […]

Spinach Chicken Parmigiana Pasta #TakeYourPlace

by Anne Papina on April 8, 2013

Good food doesn’t need to be fancy or expensive–in fact, over the years I’ve learned that sometimes the simplest meals are the best. Take, for instance, this Spinach Chicken Parmesan Pasta. Literally just a handful of ingredients come together in a superbly flavored dish. Plus, you’ve got at least three food groups going on here–there’s […]

Turkey and Black Bean Enchiladas #SundaySupper

by Anne Papina on November 18, 2012

In just a few short days, we’ll be stuffed to the gills and unable to even look at another bite of food. I know; I’ve been there. Many times, in fact. One of the great joys of Thanksgiving (besides the time spent with family and friends) is the food, especially the leftovers. This week’s #SundaySupper […]

This is one of those recipes that’s a cinch to throw together, yet admittedly, I don’t make this as often as I should. Chicken Cacciatore’s rich aroma and flavors are borne in its simplicity. Some may remember Pollo alla Cacciatora as a relic from the 1950s’ Italian-American food scene–just add drippy candles and a bottle […]
