Looking for new and healthier recipes to use in my day to day life, I was drawing up recipes that I didn’t really want to try. I wanted something new and innovative, something that was healthy and delicious and didn’t feel like a penance when I ate it. When you think of food movements and innovative cooking, an American city that may come to mind is San Francisco, CA. I perused their local online paper, the San Francisco Chronicle, for some inspiration and came across a pan roasted chicken with drizzle that was low in calories, less than 500 calories per serving. The following is an adaptation of that recipe. I was quite pleased, the sauce lent a tart, sweet component to the succulent and savory chicken. I will definitely be making this again.
Breakfast is one of my favorite meals of the day. Especially on the weekends, when we have more time to dedicate to whipping up something delightful such as this take on a pancake. While I am unsure specifically if this is Dutch or German after reading much debate on the internet, I will call it what I have heard it referred to in the states: German Apple Pancake. Regardless, it is as delicious as it is beautiful. With its souffle comes crispy edges on the outside and a custard-like middle topped by apples, mmmmm… I can’t think of much better to go along with a nice big cup of joe to start my morning.
