Grilled Apricot Chicken

Grilled Apricot Chicken

Perfectly grilled moist chicken is one of my favorite things ever. Especially when basted with a sweet and tangy sauce. There is something about classic smoky flavor and caramelized sauce that hits all of the food high notes for me. This Grilled Apricot Chicken is no exception.

Thick apricot preserves and dried apricots are the sweet base of our tasty sauce. To get the wow factor, we added some spicy and savory flavors. What did we add? Lemon zest, a little bit of soy sauce, and a few other surprises.

Be sure to see how fast we turned our left over basting glaze into a yummy serving sauce.

Hungarian Stew

Hungarian Stew

This recipe for Hungarian Stew is one of my favorite all-time food memories.

Everyone has food memories, right? That amazing grilled steak you had at that restaurant a few years ago. Or that crazy-indulgent dessert your grandmother used to make for you as a kid? Those awesome little red, white and blue popsicles they had in your school cafeteria?

Isn’t it wonderful how so many of our life experiences involve food….the flavors, the surroundings, the smells. You can literally taste that memory.

So let’s go back about 15 years to one of my favorite girls’ weekends ever. To the meal I have been craving for over a decade.

(Hungarian Stew on a girls’ weekend? Yep.) Continue Reading…
