Stewed Chicken Recipe: A Comfort Food Classic

By Heather Solos | May 14, 2010

Chicken and Dumplings

By Heather Solos | November 6, 2012

Garlic and Soy Chicken Thighs

By Heather Solos | January 30, 2014

By Heather Solos | September 17, 2010

Dear Home Ec 101, I’m moving to Virginia in about a month, and in my visits I discovered a wonderful little farm nearby that sells free-range, organic chickens.

Buffalo Chicken Sandwich

Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches

By Heather Solos | May 2, 2011

Heather says: Buffalo chicken sandwiches are my weakness. I don’t know why, maybe it’s the combination of crunch, heat, and the cool of the blue cheese. Buffalo chicken sandwiches are a sometimes food, meaning I don’t pretend they are healthy and I won’t make them often, but when I do? Hoo boy, I enjoy them.…
