I know I mention Williams-Sonoma products a lot in my blogs, it just so happens I like the quality and taste of their food items or kitchen products. One such item I discovered a few years ago during their summer sale was chile lime corn seasoning. This product is still available both online and in store.
Weddings these days are multi day events. As the grooms parents, we hosted the rehearsal dinner and two post wedding events for family and friends from out of town. By Sunday evening, my husband was exhausted. I on the other hand had beds to change and linens to wash before my daughter and son-in-law return this coming holiday weekend.
As I had to work until 7 last evening, I defrosted some boneless chicken breasts for a quick supper. However, I was at a loss as to what recipe to use. I went through a few websites, but finally found something interesting on Lidia's Italy. It was a recipe for chicken breasts with orange and Gaeta olives. The recipe looked very easy to prepare. The ingredients made it sound perfect for summer evening meal. The dish had both orange zest and fresh orange juice for nice fresh flavor, fennel powder for bit of anise taste, olives for a briny tang and fresh parsley at the end to brighten the flavors.
I have had in my possession for awhile, a recipe for slower cooker beef sliders from the September 2013 issue of South Living Magazine. This recipe was part of an article which also featured the Buffalo chicken meatball sliders that I prepared earlier in the week. Both of these recipes would be great during football and soccer season as both can be prepared ahead then finished up with minimal time.
I also like them for an upcoming summer party I'm planning. It will be different from the standard hot dogs and hamburgers and everyone can help themselves. To go along with either sandwich you can prepare coleslaw, tomatoes and mozzarella (once the Jersey tomatoes start appearing in the market) or Jersey corn.
When my daughter first started living in Manhattan after graduating from college, my sister-in-law and I met her after work. She took us to Redhead Tavern in the East Village. While doing a bit of research for this post, I come to find that the Redhead Tavern closed last December. However, prior to closing it was featured on one of the earlier seasons of the Food Network's Diners, Drive-ins and Dives.
