Mustard, Garlic, Lime Marinated Chicken Breasts #Giveaway

Mustard, Garlic, Lime Marinated Chicken Breasts

A Finicky Consumer I admit I’m a bit of a food snob. I pore over the bell peppers at the market, looking for the most vibrant, unblemished option. I search out fragrant berries and open the packages one by one to find the most perfect, unmarred fruit. I’m sure the produce folks roll their eyes when they […]

Summer Tomato Tart | Tomato Tart recipe

Summer Tomato Tart #SkinnyTip

A Bounty of Gorgeous Tomatoes I just can’t help myself, but when July rolls around and garden and heirloom tomatoes are plentiful, I’m compelled to whip up a tart. Yes, in the heat of the summer, I’ll turn on the oven so I can eat a freshly baked summer tomato tart. Just look at it? Can […]

Zucchini Bread | Cinnamon Spiced Zucchini Bread Recipe

Zucchini Bread #SkinnyTip

Oh Where, Oh Where, Did My Zucchini Go? This time of year, I’m always hoping to find a donation of zucchini dropped off at my doorstep. No such luck, but I did head down to the Bloomington, Indiana, farmers’ market with some girlfriends where there was no shortage of fresh, gorgeous produce. I returned home with green beans, […]

White Chocolate Brownies | Brownie Recipe | That Skinny Chick Can Bake

White Chocolate Brownies #TwoSweetiePies

Recipe Redux I have a little gizmo at the bottom of my posts that shares related posts. Sometimes I gasp at the look of the old posts that pop up. Usually a terrific recipe, but photographed in my dark kitchen with no attempt at food styling. Today’s brownies are one such recipe.  My friend, Danielle, with whom […]

Bread and Butter Pickles | A refrigerator pickle recipe

Bread and Butter Pickles #SundaySupper #SkinnyTip

North Dakota Memories Each summer, we’d pile into our unairconditioned station wagon and take the eight hour trek up to visit our North Dakota relatives. There were no seat belts or radio in that car, either. My dad was a frugal man! We’d kill time by picking out our favorite farm houses and playing license […]

Tuna Confit | Ahi tuna recipe | That Skinny Chick Can Bake

Tuna Confit with Black Olive Tapenade and Tomato Salsa #FrenchFridayswithDorie #SkinnyTip

What is a Confit? If you’re wondering what the heck a confit is, you’ve come to the right place. Pronounced “cone-FEE,” the term simply refers to a meat cooked in its own fat. Duck confit seems to be the best known version, and is a component of  a classic French dish, cassoulet. So this Tuna Confit […]

German Chocolate Brownie Cupcakes

German Chocolate Brownie Cupcakes

German Chocolate Love I could eat the gooey, coconut and pecan filling you find in a typical German chocolate cake with a spoon. Every January my dad, who always said he didn’t care for sweets, would have a huge slab of said cake for his birthday. My mom would pick one up at the local Randall’s […]

Compote de Pommes or French Applesauce #FrenchFridayswithDorie

My mother-in-law always has a bowl of homemade applesauce cooling on her dining room table when we visit. She uses Golden Delicious apples…and it’s usually necessary to  whip up a second batch before we head home. SO simple…just peel, core, and chop the apples before simmering with a little water and sugar. So making Dorie’s […]

Chocolate Mousse with Grand Marnier #SecretRecipeClub

It is with sheer delight that I reveal my Secret Recipe Club blog today: Manu’s Menu. I met Manu in the early days of my blog…we were both on Foodbuzz as well as members of The Daring Bakers. She made a tri-layered panna cotta that was incredible for one DB challenge…and I knew I’d return […]

Pizookies | Big, gooey pan cookies!

Pizookies #SundaySupper

What is a Pizookie?? If you’re anything like me, Pizookies have not been on your radar. But they will be after today. The term is a blend of the words pizza and cookie…a pan cookie usually served warm with a scoop of ice cream. Nice, eh? Today’s Sunday Supper theme is Man Food, and for those […]

Limoncello

Limoncello is a classic Italian after dinner drink. Made from lemon zest steeped in vodka, it’s very simple to put together. The last batch was a gift for the gals in my fabulous book club..and when sipping it after an Italian dinner out with some friends this summer, I promised to show them how to […]
