Quarantine: Chicken on the wire. Just shows I also like something besides pork for BBQ. Chicken is second on the list with beef a distant 3rd….brisket only…no ribs! This sauce...

Quarantine: Egg Roll in a Bowl. Another one to try. It’s Whole 30, Low Card, Keto and Paleo…all in the same bowl! What makes this dish is the creamy chili...

Quarantine: Fried Chicken and Cocktails. This is no ordinary fried chicken…it’s all about the breading. The recipe is here and it’s not really deep fried. This version was made with...

Quarantine: Simply Charcuterie and Cheese. Enough said. Have it with an Oregon Pinot Noir or a light rosé from the South of France. Could just go with a Moscow Mule...

Quarantine: Doron’s Chicken Meatballs. Long a favorite of ours…..with several versions….including using turkey instead of chicken. What makes these are the pine nuts and yellow raisins which, when fried, add...

North Bend WA

When you’re in the area check out this bakery: The North Bend Bakery (formerly Georgia’s and George’s). It’s been in the same location for 90 years so it’s a bit...

Quarantine: Orecchiette with Chicken Sausage. More pasta….it’s become a mainstay and go to during our time at home. Good thing there are dozens of different pastas and dozens, if not...

Quarantine: Linguine Primavera with Asparagus and Peas. And another pasta dish….we do eat other cuisines but as mentioned before, there are many dozens of pastas with an equal number of...

Quarantine: Shrimp and Rice Thai Curry Bowl. Another good choice while sheltering in place. This one is an example of a mild curry so it should be a acceptable to...

Seattle

Takeaway: Mean Sandwich. Still in Phase 1 so no restaurants are yet open for dining. This is a place that gets great reviews and has been on my list to...

Quarantine: Love me some Brussel Sprouts. Another bowl and another keeper and it’s good for you to boot! The interplay of spices, sweetness from the squash and the added mouthfeel...

Quarantine: Taco Torte. This is a keeper…..think multilayer lasagna filled instead with taco filling and tortilla instead of pasta. When first described, I was a bit skeptical but one taste...
