In real life, Angie had a Dumbo-themed baby shower. So, my mind went: Dumbo, elephant, peanuts, peanut butter. Yep. I knew I wanted to make a savory dish with peanut butter sauce!

Chicken Satay Skewers 
with Peanut Butter Sauce

Ingredients
Marinade
  • juice and zest from 1 organic lemon (I used a Meyer lemon)
  • 2 T garlic, peeled and pressed
  • 1/2 C olive oil
  • 1/4 C soy sauce
  • 1-1/2 pounds chicken (I used boneless and skinless strips of chicken breast)
  • Also needed: skewers and grill or grill pan

Satay Sauce
  • juice and zest from 1 organic lemon
  • 2 T peanut butter
  • 2 T ground almonds
  • 1/2 C coconut milk
  • splash of soy sauce to taste
  • 1 T raw honey + more as needed


Procedure
Marinade
Whisk together the marinade ingredients. Place chicken in a lidded container. Pour marinade over the top. Let the meat marinate overnight in the fridge.

While the grill heats up, soak the skewers in cold water for, at least, 10 minutes. Thread strips of meat onto each skewer and place on the grill. Cook for a few minutes on each side until cooked golden. 

Satay Sauce
Combine all the satay sauce ingredients with just enough soy sauce to season. Add a little honey to sweeten, if necessary. Simmer gently for five minutes.


Serve with the hot satay sauce for dipping.

Quick Pickled Red Onions and Radishes

If you've been reading my blog for even a short amount of time, you probably know how much I love to pickle things. I was just telling a friend you can pickle - with vinegar - or you can ferment - with salt - for similar delicious effect. The latter has digestive benefits and I love to do that, but when I need that pop of sour flavor quickly, I whip up quick pickles that are ready in as little as a day or two. I've Pickled Blueberries , Pickled Asparagus , Pickled Cranberries , Pickled Pumpkin , and even Pickled Chard Stems ! This I did last night for an upcoming recipe challenge that requires I include radishes. Ummmm...of course I'm pickling them! Ingredients  makes 1 quart jar radishes, trimmed and sliced organic red onions, peeled and thinly sliced (I used a mandolin slicer) 3/4 C vinegar (I used white distilled vinegar) 3/4 C water 3 T organic granulated sugar 1 T salt (I used some grey sea salt) 6 to 8 grinds of black pepper Proce

Hot Chocolate Agasajo-Style {Spice It Up!}

photo by D For my Spice It Up! kiddos this week, I was looking for an exotic drink to serve while we learned about saffron. I found a recipe from food historian Maricel Presilla that mimicked traditional Spanish hot chocolate from the 17th century where it was served at lavish receptions called agasajos . When I teach, I don't always get to shoot photos. Thankfully, D grabbed my camera and snapped a few. Ingredients serves 14-16 1 gallon organic whole milk 3 T dried rosebuds - or 2 t rosewater 2 t saffron threads, lightly crushed 3 T ground cinnamon 3 whole tepin chiles, crushed 2 vanilla beans, split lengthwise 1 C organic granulated sugar 1 lb. bittersweet chocolate Procedure In a large soup pot that can hold a gallon plus, combine milk, dried rosebuds (or rosewater, if you are using that), saffron threads, ground cinnamon, chiles, vanilla beans, and sugar and warm over medium heat till it steams. Whisk to dissolve sugar, then lower heat an

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!
