Winner Winner. Chicken Dinner.

By on June 16, 2012

So we do this “quick order” thing on Fresh Direct (the web-based grocery delivery service we use in the city).  It pulls up your last order, and usually like 80% of the stuff you want again, so you add/delete as necessary and it’s quicker than ordering from scratch.  But…

Chicken Piccata. Old School, man. Old School.

By on December 3, 2011

Chicken Piccata.  There’s a dish you won’t find in the cutting-edge Manhattan culinary scene.  Well, unless it’s served with caper foam, a savory lemon popsicle and parsley fairy dust.   But I’m not afraid to go Old School on you with the real deal.  Let’s bring it on.  Old…

Carnitas! (bet you thought it would be turkey)

More Brunch! Challah Vanilla French Toast

The Prep:

Slice Challah, nice…

Salad For Dinner – the NKI?

By on October 8, 2011

Ummm, salad for dinner?  Really?  Don’t worry, people.  This is no wimpy toss of greens.  We are placing together a hearty (yes, hearty) arranged salad in the style of Nice, France: a Salad Niçoise.  Let’s take a few liberties with the traditional bent, but conceptually we’ll enjoy our salad…
