Roasted Chicken Thighs with Clementines and Roasted Vegetables

After my dad and M visited, they had left me with some chicken thighs, clementines, carrots, and celery. I didn’t have any plans for them but decided to throw them together into something. Somehow they all worked together and made something delicious. I served it on top of rice to take advantage of the sauce.

Pineapple-Brown Sugar Glazed Chicken Breasts

When I was looking back through my pictures to figure out which recipes I wanted to share, I had the hardest time remembering where this one came from. Normally I would have dismissed it as not memorable, but actually it was. I remembered that we all really liked it, including the Chiplet in a pureed form. So, I definitely wanted to make it again. All I needed to do was think back to which cookbooks I had been looking at for ideas and finally I remembered this one. See? Even my tired brain works sometimes. I am very happy to be reminded of this because it was fairly simple. My biggest worry at the time was if it would turn out okay with my changes. But it did and we enjoyed it.

Baked Ziti with Crème Fraîche and Spinach

Maybe I should be sharing a spooky recipe for today, but I wanted to share this because it is recipe you can make ahead. Basically you can follow the recipe below right up until the step where you bake it, and then just refrigerate it until you are ready to bake it. It might take a little bit longer to bake since it is cold, but I did it the day before and it was still great. So, if you’re getting kids or yourself ready for trick or treating, you can assemble this the day before or in the morning, then pop it in the oven while you get ready. Eat, then go enjoy some treats!

Spinach and Ground Beef with Walnuts and Pasta

One weekend I decided to see what I could make with some ground beef I had in the fridge. I liked a recipe I found in my Back Pocket Pasta cookbook, but I didn’t really follow any of the ingredients…hers used escarole, sausage, pine nuts, and garlic. So, I was inspired and made my own pasta dish.

What’s wrong with this waffle?
