daisi - July 19, 2012

Ok, so typically baked beans are well, baked. But if you aren’t one of the lucky ones to have a double oven, then you can’t necessarily make baked beans AND anything else at the same time. I ran into this problem recently when making some barbecue ribs. Of course the perfect side dish for barbecue is baked beans, so I decided to attempt beans “baked” in a crock pot. …

Roasted Chicken Stock

daisi - March 21, 2012

It’s against my religion to let food go to waste. I cannot, will not, throw food away. Hence all my freezer woes (more to come on that). Well, a couple weeks ago when I made roasted chicken, I used it as an opportunity to make some roasted chicken stock. A new one for me. It’s very easy (as most stocks are). Just keep your chicken …

Julia Child’s Roasted Chicken
