TWO INGREDIENT DIJON ROAST CHICKEN

DIJON ROAST CHICKEN // The Kitchy Kitchen
Well, four if you include the chicken and salt, but you get the idea. A perfectly roast chicken is one of life’s simplest pleasures. If I’m in my kitchen alone, I’ll devour a roast chicken with my bare hands, and plenty of extra salt and whole grain mustard. I would go for a glass of white wine, but with my […]

FRESH PINA COLADA

FRESH PIÑA COLADA // The Kitchy Kitchen
My favorite cocktail when I was 10 years old was a lava flow – virgin, of course. Pina colada + strawberry margarita in a pink and white swirl was my idea of heaven.  It was purely a vacation treat, you understand, and any time we’d go somewhere with a pool, I knew I could get my grubby little paws on […]

MARINATED CHICKPEAS

MARINATED CHICKPEAS // The Kitchy Kitchen
As you know, I’m not much of a leafy greens salad girl, so when it comes to eating my vegetables, I prefer them more in the “deli salad” milieu.

CHICKEN SALAD LETTUCE WRAPS // 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 […]

BON-BON ROOT BEER FLOATS

BON-BON ROOT BEER FLOATS // The Kitchy Kitchen
Root beer floats are a family tradition for me. It’s my dad’s must-have dessert on his birthday. There’s something about the icy crust that forms around the ice cream in the soda. The cream with the herbaceous kick of the root beer is such a delicious combination, how could it possibly get better? Enter Courtney from Large Marge. She’s a […]

CHOCOLATIEST ALMOND MILK EVER

THE CHOCOLATIEST ALMOND MILK EVER // The Kitchy Kitchen
My love of chocolate is the least mysterious thing about me. I so obviously love it.

Well, I started playing around with chocolate […]
