This was a pretty yummy weeknight dinner. I think Adam liked this one more than I did, maybe I’m a macaroni and cheese purist. I don’t know, but it was by no means a bad recipe. Actually really good, but not wuite my thing. Not too shabby at all, from Food Network Magazine. I forgot to buy scallions, so I used half a red onion. And I used jarred roasted red peppers, yum.

Ugh, I’m taking the worst food photos lately! Okay, every recipe I’ve posted so far this week has been sweet stuff. Time to switch gears. This was a really delicious dinner I made a couple weeks ago, from yet another Food Network Magazine recipe. It was fast and fun, more interesting than most chicken dinners. It had tons of flavor, red onions (which I can never get enough of), and it’s pretty healthy, too. My kind of dinner: good, solid food that doesn’t need to use processed diet ingredients to be healthy.

I swapped out chicken breasts for thighs, since Adam won’t go near dark meat. I halved the recipe, too, which made for a great 2-person dinner. I’m definitely making this again. I’ve posted the original recipe below, which could easily feed a crowd. But it works great made in a smaller quantity, too.

1 1/2 pounds large Yukon gold potatoes, cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces
4 cloves garlic, smashed and coarsely chopped
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
Kosher salt
1 1/2 pounds skinless, boneless chicken thighs (5 to 6 thighs) ***Like I said. I cut up skinless breasts instead.
2 teaspoons smoked paprika
Freshly ground pepper
4 tablespoons roughly chopped fresh parsley
2 lemons (1 juiced, 1 cut into wedges)
2 large or 3 medium red onions, halved and thinly sliced

So let’s move on from my fruit experiments and talk about something really important. I LOVE chocolate chip cookies. But I hate when they get hard and crunchy within minutes of being out of the oven. I like soft and chewy cookies, with a little crispness on the edges. And I’m often looking for recipes that will produce this result, but I’m not really successful. Even the classic Toll House cookie recipe gets too hard too fast (which is why I only like making that recipe as a bar cookie–those DO stay soft!)

I’ve got a regular distillery rocking here at the house. Aside from a great deal of pie, I’ve turned a lot of my fresh summer fruit into yummy booze (see the posts on my cherry adventures).

I don’t think it’s a secret at this point that I love to cook. Or that I’ve started canning with a vengeance. I think I can hold my head up and declare this summer’s fruit bounty fully explored here at the Reeve house. There are still some fruits left to experiment with this summer, but it’s been a huge success. And yes, I still keep forgetting to take more photos! H and I are just having too much fun.
