Cooking with diabetes: Chicken salad nests in split bell peppers

posted: 04/22/2015 1:50 a.m. Discuss

Recipes with short preparation times and little or no heat are our favorite kind during these fleeting weeks of what we like to think of as "window weather" -- those days when no heat or air conditioning is needed to feel comfortable inside the house, just the temperate breeze through the open windows.

Front Burner: Work-free week still involves stove

posted: 04/15/2015 1:59 a.m. Discuss

You may have noticed my column didn't run last week. I was busy doing nothing on a week-long staycation. My husband and I spent a day at Petit Jean State Park, toured the Rock Town Distillery, drank our fill of locally produced craft beer. We took the dogs for long walks and short hikes. We slept as late as the dogs would allow. And we ate dinner together every night.

Cooking for two: Sauce turns ordinary bird extraordinary

posted: 04/15/2015 1:55 a.m. Discuss

The ingredient in this chicken dish that elevates the humble fowl to extraordinary is sorghum molasses. Sorghum syrup, as it is sometimes called to avoid confusion with molasses from cane sugar, adds a distinctive sweet, spiciness to the sauce that other sweeteners don't have.

posted: 04/01/2015 2:02 a.m. Discuss

Whether your Easter plans involve a sunrise church service, an Easter egg hunt or sleeping in, having most of the prep work and cooking done beforehand can ease the stress of getting a holiday meal on the table.

Front Burner: Juices, browned bits render savory sauce

posted: 04/01/2015 1:58 a.m. Discuss

Pan sauce is something I tend to overlook. It isn't that I don't appreciate a good pan sauce. Or recognize that pan sauce can be the difference between a good recipe and an outstanding one. I'm neglectful because often I'm in such a rush to get dinner on the table that I don't take the five minutes needed to make the sauce.
