BBQ Pulled Chicken Stuffed Baked Sweet Potato

We’ve eaten some pretty good stuff over the last almost three Whole30 weeks (hello, fire-sale King Crab legs!) but our favorite meal (besides the crab) has been this a baked sweet potato half topped with barbecue “pulled” chicken, served along side something green. And not just because it’s an incredibly budget-friendly meal… but that helped, [...]

Enchiladas con Queso

If there are any guarantees when going out to dinner with me, it’s that I’ll order chips & queso if it’s on the menu. And that I’ll be full before my second of three margaritas makes it to the table. (But I’ll still find room for those fajitas because I always do. And then spend [...]

Salted Turkey with Citrus & Herbs

So remember how I declared the Sweet Tea Brine the greatest thing to happen to poultry since deep frying? Well, let’s talk about the pretty darn close runner-up: the “dry brined” turkey.

November 4, 2012
Brining vs Salting a Turkey or Chicken

Our Thanksgiving menu is mostly set and we’re testing out the few new items that made their way onto the menu over the next couple of weeks. We ended up not being able to completely agree on the turkey recipe so we thought we’d just make both, throwdown style. The winner’s turkey recipe would be [...]
