Roasted Lemon-Thyme Chicken with Fall Veggies

I’ve lived in the lower-North East U.S. all of my life. From Pittsburgh, to White Plains, NY, landing in Philadelphia, and now in middle-of-nowhere Ohio. And in all of these places, fall seems to come on FAST and disappear into winter just as quickly. So we kind of have to jump from flip-flops-and-shorts to hoodies-and-hats very quickly, or we miss out on this season altogether.

Taiwanese Three Cup Chicken (aka 三杯鷄)

As some of you might already know, I’m a Taiwanese-American. Growing up around these parts, my mom enrolled me in Chinese School.  It’s not like normal school – all it is is it’s a 2 hour class on Saturday where a teacher taught you Mandarin Chinese and Chinese Literature.  One of my fondest memories from back then was my mom and I would always grab dinner at the local Taiwanese restaurant and I would ALWAYS beg for Taiwanese Three Cup Chicken (aka San Bei Ji or 三杯鷄).

My boyfriend doesn’t follow diets of any kind, typically considering himself a meat-and-potatoes kind of man. I offered him a big bowl of this as soon as I took it off the stove and I couldn’t believe how much he liked it!

Baked Ginger Spiced Chicken Drumsticks

The big question every time I’m making dinner is… do I want to go stove top or oven?  I will say I normally stir fry, as it is easy and fast.  However, some days, I just don’t want to stand at the stove and pay attention to what I’m cooking!  What’s nice about this Baked Ginger Spiced Chicken Drumsticks recipes is that this is one of those recipes you can just pop in the oven, and relax (okay – maybe you do have to go back and turn the drumsticks over at one point, but other than that…)  So if

Easy Orange Chicken Stir-Fry

This Easy Orange Chicken Stir-Fry is easy and paleo-approved — and the one-pan preparation makes cleanup a breeze! I love how flavorful this is without being overwhelming; sometimes when I get orange chicken from a restaurant, I feel like I’m just eating solid orange juice and the flavor is too sweet for me. This preparation leaves you with a subtle, fragrant orange flavor and a small kick from the fresh garlic and ginger, making it great for all palates. If you do like more of that flavor, the fresh orange garnish makes it easy for you to adjust. And, as
