If you are anything like me, you are always looking for new ways to prepare chicken. I tend to fall back to my comfort zone, repeating similar flavors and techniques over and over. One of the things I like the most about developing recipes for clients is that it forces me to think outside my normal boundaries, challenging myself to come up with new and creative ways to make meals.
When I was a child I hated rice because it was boring white, cooked in plain water with no flavorings. It was pretty awful. As a super taster I wanted flavor and interest, anything that would wake up my taste buds. Then I started learning how to cook and discovered that I could use broth instead of water, add a little wine, herbs and vegetables. Suddenly it became a favorite side dish.
This week’s Food Network Sensational Sides theme is asparagus, the queen of springtime vegetables. I never liked it as a child because my mom always use canned vegetables for our dinners (bleh!), but when I got older I discovered how delicious fresh vegetables were and now it is my favorite. There is nothing better than the beautiful pencil asparagus arriving in stores and farmers’ markets when the sun is shining and the days are getting longer. Seeing the bright green stalks lets us know that the huge piles of freshly picked produce heaped on each table at the market is right around the corner.
My father-in-law loves chocolate and peanut butter and has been begging me for a special treat. He does so many things for The Artist and me – how could I refuse! So I went hunting for something new to make and share with you and I found these incredible cookies. O.M.G. they are so good!
