I added craisins, garlic, chopped walnuts, and sautéed onions. Great side dish. Hope you enjoy!
Braised Chicken and Kale with prosciutto
Crispy Battered Old bay Chicken
This came out way better than I thought it would.
Batter: 1 3/4 cups of flour, 1 tsp of baking soda, 1 tbsp of old bay, 1/2 tsp of cayenne pepper, a pinch of salt, 1 cup of water.
You can always change the measurements of Ingredients to make the batter thicker or thinner or even make a larger batch.You can season the chicken with any spices that you choose. I used salt, pepper, granulated onion, granulated garlic, and paprika. I used chicken breast sliced thin for a quick fry so the batter wouldn’t burn. This batter also works well with chicken thighs too. Next time I think I will cut the chicken breast into chunks before frying to make them bite size pieces. For oil for dying I prefer to use canola, but you can use any oil that you like. Hope you enjoy!
¼ Cup of walnut oil ¼ cup of olive oil
1 cup of orange juice salt and pepper (to your liking)
3 to 4 cloves of garlic minced shredded Parmesan
1 tsp of red pepper flakes ¼ cup of lemon juice
The best way I have made this is adding all of the ingredients and slowly whisking in the olive oil and walnut oil and add the Parmesan cheese at the end. Pour the mixture over your favorite Kale ( either Tuscan or regular) and let it sit for no less than 20 minutes. If your pressed for time like I always am you can use your favorite pulp free orange juice or if you can freshly squeeze 2 to 3 oranges. It’s so good. Before eating toss with a little more Parmesan cheese and chopped walnuts. Enjoy!!

3 tsp of ground cinnamon 6 cloves of garlic
1 vidalia onion/ sweet onion 4 tbsp of unsweetened cocoa

This mole can used for any meat of your choice. Steak, chicken or pork. I used chicken and it always comes out full of flavor and good.
So, I have been creating a few new things on my own, that whole process of trial and error. This week it was homemade farm stand pasta primavera. Some vegetables looked better than others. Covered it with cheese and the kids loved it. Finished product and recipe are soon to come.
Fried Chicken Breast with corn and rice
Add the cider, caramel flavored vodka and a cinnamon stick in a small pot and simmer for 10 minutes or so. I like to put brown sugar around the rim for a little sweetness. I like to serve this drink warm. Perfect for the fall!!
