We are lucky enough to spend each Sunday evening sharing a meal with my family — my parents, siblings and their families — and last night was no exception. Katrina spent the afternoon with her grandparents so that left me some actual time to say, run to the farmer’s market and pick up some corn and peaches. So last nights’ dinner turned out rather well, if I do say so myself, and I meant to take photos but we just couldn’t wait to start eating. So the photo here is a dinner re-enactment — also called lunch today. On the menu: Herbed Grilled Chicken Breasts, Slow-Cooked Memphis Ribs (not pictured), Insalata Caprese (we add a spash of balsamic vinegar with the olive oil), Stuffed Eggs, Corn on the Cob, and Peach Cobbler with Star Anise a la mode for dessert (also not pictured).
Lots of people find cooking inspiration from a certain chef or cookbook but for us, we love Fine Cooking Magazine. We’ve gotten a variety of cooking magazines over the years but Fine Cooking is really the best. Some others are a lot about travel and wine and me, I just want the cooking stuff. We’ve been subscribers for many years and we’ve tried lots of recipes with very few bad results. In fact, many of our favorite all time recipes were gleaned from its pages. Anyway, the chicken, the ribs, and the cobbler from last night’s dinner were all recipes originating in the magazine. And as you can see, the ribs and cobbler were so good they didn’t make it to the re-enactment.
