Easy Chicken with Sun-dried Tomato and Capers

Thursday, February 28, 2013

This may be the easiest recipe I’ve ever written.

It came about as a very last-minute decision just minutes before serving dinner to my little family. Dinner had already been prepped and planned during Caya’s nap as usual. Lon had just arrived at home, which is usually 15 minutes later than ideal. We rush through a hand-off of Caya to Lon and I need dinner on the table in under 10 minutes.

In my mind, I was pretty much set: a carb, a veg, a protein; the three minimum requirements I have for a meal. As I looked at my dinner, it dawned on me that it’s incredibly plain. I love plain bread (with good olive oil or butter) and I often keep veggies simple, sauteed with garlic and oil. Good meat is also just fine seasoned with salt and pepper. Nothing is wrong with any part of my dinner when paired with other dishes but when all three are so plain, that is a boring meal. In a moment of panic, I dug through the fridge to see if I had any left-over sauces to dress-up dinner a little. I saw a jar of sun-dried tomatoes next to a jar of capers and I thought, hey I could make a sauce with that but making a sauce might take too long so I just chopped it up, added garlic, warmed it up and put it on top. I threw it on the table and thought, that looks pretty nice. Hope it tastes good…

Thyme for Sun-Dried Tomato Twists

Tuesday, September 29, 2009

When I was thinking about a nice spread of appetizers to put out, I wanted finger foods, easy to pick up while holding a glass of wine. Guests can pick up bites as they roam around and mingle. (I don’t actually have a party planned at the moment. This is just the kind of stuff that floats around in my head on a daily basis.) I have seen (and eaten) cheese twists and I love the way they look, long and elegant, twisted and flaky. You know it will be buttery. As much as I love cheese, I will probably already be serving cheese (in my hypothetical party), and I am anal about variety. This version, using sun-dried tomatoes and thyme is still buttery and flaky, twisted and variegated, yet will pair perfectly with the cheese and not compete with it.

Pear Feta Orzo Salad

Friday, January 16, 2009

A little more than a week ago, I made a Roasted Garlic and Sun Dried Tomato Dressing, and I kind of got hooked on the flavor, craving it again. I wanted to show you just how versatile it is so I didn’t make the same salads. For the dinner with Sarah and Tim last night, I made an orzo salad.

Roasted Garlic and Sun Dried Tomato Dressing

Wednesday, January 7, 2009

I made this salad dressing the other night to dress a salad of mixed baby greens, carrot ribbons, and pieces of peppered salami. It was good. I used the left-over dressing to top a salad of mixed baby greens, chopped D’anjou pear, cucumber, and crumbled feta. It was fantastic, way up there in the top salads arena! I’m salivating just thinking about it.
