TINA’S PEAS + CARROTS

TINA'S PEAS + CARROTS + MUSHROOMS // The Kitchy Kitchen
What does childhood taste like? Is it salty, or sweet? Does it fizz and pop on the tip of your tongue, or does it melt slowly? Do your lips pucker a little, do your teeth hurt?  Does it quickly pulse with a sizzle or does it announce itself with steam pouring out of the oven?  This could be almost anything.  […]

SIMPLE CHICKEN KALE WRAPS // MOM MONDAY

SIMPLE CHICKEN KALE WRAPS // MOM MONDAY // The Kitchy Kitchen
Many of my girlfriends and family are fun, awesome, and fabulous young moms, and though I’m still a few years away from little ones of my own, the idea of “mom friendly” dishes has popped up more than once.  I was a pretty open minded eater as a little kid, but my brother on the other hand…ketchup and brown stuff […]

This is a great recipe to add your own twist. I like the combination of lemon and raspberry with almonds, but you could lemon with blackberry and a walnut crust, or lime and peach with a pecan crust.  Basically, this is a go-to lemon bar recipe that you can twist around any way you like.  INGREDIENTS (CRUST) For one 9 […]

BAKED CLAMS ELIZABETH

BAKED CLAMS ELIZABETH // The Kitchy Kitchen
This is perfect little bite before a meal: warm, savory, and unexpected, it gets your palette working and your face grinning before you even get to the table.  The combination of fresh herbs with aged cheese is fantastic with the smokey, briny flavor of the clams. If you’ve never opened a clam by hand before, have your local fishmonger show […]
