Braised Chicken with Apples

braised chicken with apple on OvertimeCook.com

Braised chicken with apples and sweet potatoes is a meal made in one pot, utilizing the best of fall flavors. Remember how in my last post I said that I simply can't accept that summer is over? Well that's changed. No, it's not because it's labor day as I type this. It's because I've tasted my first new-crop apple. I kind of feel like a broken record here, because this is my fourth(!) fall blogging, and thus my fourth time pointing out how crunchy, juicy, fresh from the tree apples are the best, and probably only, consolation for the end of the summer. But oh, what a consolation they are. Don't get me wrong. Peaches, plums, cherries...they're all great. But nothing like my favorite, … [Read more...]

Grilled Chicken and Corn Salad with Creamy Avocado Dressing is the healthy and delicious way to enjoy summer grilling and fresh produce! I've been planning this salad for over a year now. I know. It sounds crazy. Who spends a year planning a salad? Granted, I did do one or two other things during that year, but I kept thinking about this salad and planning it until it was making me very hungry all the time. (Fine. I'll admit that there may have been other things making me hungry, but still.) I guess I was waiting for a good time to make it - a special occasion worthy of trying out a salad this amazing. The chance presented itself when my sister invited me to her house for the … [Read more...]

Grilled Chicken in Mustard Sauce

The best supper is the one you can make in minutes! Quick and easy grilled chicken in mustard sauce will become your new family favorite! People often ask me how I became a cook, baker, and most importantly, a recipe developer. Every time, without hesitation, I answer that it boils down to my mother and her creativity in the kitchen. I’m sure that if I had grown up in a house where my mother followed recipes without experimenting at all, that I wouldn’t have ever attempted to experiment, and eventually start creating my own recipes. It’s funny though, that while I completely credit my mother’s creativity for my own kitchen accomplishments, I’ve developed a completely different style in … [Read more...]
