This dish is DIVINE!

And I did not have any type of pre-cooked chicken on hand, so I made these Oven Baked Chicken Thighs to add to the recipe below and they hit the spot. And even with that “added” step, this is a superbly simple recipe for Chicken and Dumplings!

The BEST Pancakes Ever!

We have been making these in our family for years and they are always a hit! They are nicknamed MBP’s (Mac’s birthday pancakes) since I first served them at a family birthday breakfast a few years back. We can’t cook with cow milk in our house – so that’s how I originally found them – but over the years I have used rice milk, almond milk, and these days just water – and they are still amazing. The recipe is tremendously versatile, and forgiving, and best of all – they taste is as good as any pancake you’ve ever had. Our tweaks: if on hand, I add a cup of chocolate chips, and if you can sprinkle some confectioner’s sugar (through a sifter) on top – it’s divine. Hope you enjoy xoxo CH

Cast Iron Skillet Roast Chicken

I learned about this recipe from a new foodie friend (is there anything better?!) and she has inspired me to venture into the world of cast iron skillet cooking. First on my list will certainly be this highly recommended recipe from one of the cooking gurus behind the iconic Silver Palate “Good Times” cookbook, and four of her own cookbooks including The Nantucket Open House Cookbook and The New England Open House Cookbook.

Stay tuned for my take on my cast iron culinary adventures – and in the meantime, enjoy Sarah Leah Chase’s Cast Iron Skillet Roast Chicken.
