Garlicky Chicken with Lemon Anchovy Sauce

This quick weeknight chicken recipe from the New York Times was so good, we made it one night, then made it the next night too. For those people who think they don’t like anchovies, don’t be daunted – you can’t actually specifically taste them in the sauce. They just add some great depth of umami flavor and richness to complement the brightness of the lemon.

(Nearly) No-Knead Bread with Lager

This bread could not be easier to make. It’s baked in a dutch oven in your oven, which gives it a remarkable crust. And the long rising time and special ingredient of lager give it a great crumb. A perfect loaf to start on Friday evening, and enjoy with Saturday night dinner.

Roasted Spaghetti Squash with Shallots and Chanterelles

We are harvesting chanterelle mushrooms almost faster than we can eat them (and sharing them with friends, of course). The rich flavors of chanterelles lend themselves so nicely to pasta – but sometimes we don’t feel like eating spaghetti… Which led to us thinking – what about spaghetti squash? This dish is rich, satisfying and so good for you.
