Some of our turkey leftovers were just begging to be blanketed in a flaky, warm crust! I know pie dough can be intimidating, so here’s a step-by-step for a by-hand flaky crust. (I have a “food processor” pie crust recipe in Everyday Homemaking, so here’s a more rustic version — […]

Rosemary-Lemon Chicken with Roasted Cauliflower

After a run to our local Sam’s Club (well, 45 minutes away/ two states over… Sam’s Club, take the hint….we need you closer), I found myself needing to cook a couple of chicken breasts. Jim had just shown me that the groundhogs had managed to miss chomping on my rosemary and […]
