PAELLA DE POLLO

Paella is said to be a perfect union between 2 cultures from Spain, the Romans, for the pan and the Arabs, that brought rice. Paella is a Spanish rice dish that includes different combinations of vegetables, seafood, spices and meats with saffron as the star to tie everything together. Paella is served family style and the perfect dish to impress your friends. The best part, you can make this in about an hour tops! I would serve this up with your favorite white.

BRAISED HERB & LEEK CHICKEN

All winter I have been overly obsessed with braising. Lamb, Ribs, Chicken, hell anything I can think of, best believe it is getting braised. For those less familiar with the term, do not worry… I got you covered. I love this recipe because you can tweak it rather easily because it is based more on technique. Add a little of this, leave out a little of that. Go crazy!

MARCHING TO THE BEET

When Living on the Vedge challenged me to March to the Beet, I had no idea what I was getting myself into. Although beets are vegetables that possess several impressive health benefits, that does not change its bitter earthy taste. So I accepted this challenge, beets and all and let's just say I experienced stages of disappointment, doubt, frustration and denial.

SHRIMP COCONUT THAI SOUP

If you know me, I am a soup fanatic. Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter… I eat it all year round. But I am sure we are all extremely over the traditional chicken noodle soup, yes with a soda on the side. So I took it upon myself to combine my two favorite loves, Thai and soup… thus this Coconut Thai Soup was born.
