cider-braised turkey thigh with chorizo

by Eva Felis on November 11, 2015

With Thanksgiving Day around the corner and ideas for decoration, recipes and survival tips popping up everywhere, it’s hard to avoid thinking about turkey. With all the craziness about this bird, I am not looking forward eating leftovers for weeks. I don’t want to be a party pooper here, but turkey don’t come in XS Weiterlesen



Korean chicken wings

by Eva Felis on October 16, 2015

A friend of mine advised me to “try some pupu, when you are on Hawaii”. Holy cow this raised some question marks. I instantly had all this icky foods on my mind like chocolate covered insects, but poo-poo? Is this a thing now? Turned out pupu is just the Hawaiian name for tapas or/also appetizer. Weiterlesen



spicy grilled chicken drumsticks

by Eva Felis on May 22, 2015

If it comes right down to barbecuing, I am out. Through I don’t believe in traditional assignment of roles, I didn’t even light this grill outside once. One part is I am happy to entrust this duty to Mr. F and the other is, he even loves it. I also assume his concern is, if Weiterlesen



Turkish turkey meatballs

by Eva Felis on April 14, 2015

I have never been to Turkey but always wanted to visit. Istanbul is on top of my list. My affection for this country started with my best friend growing up, because her parents were from Turkey.



roasted chicken breasts with honey, rosemary and red wine

by Eva Felis on January 31, 2015

Thanks to the minimal hands on time, roasting a chicken is one of my favorite weeknight dinners. And on the other hand you prepare a comforting meal for one or two more days to come. Having said this however my enthusiasm for the chicken breast was rather limited and I only found it interesting bathed Weiterlesen



stuffed cabbage

by Eva Felis on November 3, 2014

Last weekend a cold front from Canada had approached and lived up to its promise for snow in the Appalachian Mountains and yet unusual cold weather for us in Atlanta. I wouldn’t dare to say this out loud, but I had been waiting for that. I should mention to my defense, I am not getting Weiterlesen



spicy marinated pork tenderloin wrapped in bacon

by Eva Felis on September 4, 2014

Pork tenderloin doesn’t get as much attention as it should. I am also guilty as charged, I rather enjoy a leaner piece of meat than a fat dripping pork belly -uh- makes my stomach sick and sits in my belly heavy like a stone. But I used to prefer chicken breast or turkey burger and Weiterlesen



white chili in the blue ridge mountains

by Eva Felis on March 29, 2014

Well this snapshot above might not go down as the best food picture in history, but it’s all about the taste, isn’t it. I guess that’s what you get, if you are in a hurry. Mr. F came up with the idea to spend the weekend in a cabin in the mountains and I didn’t Weiterlesen



How to roast a chicken on a bed of salt

by Eva Felis on October 31, 2013

Yesterday I approached the grocery store with only the best intentions: there should be some greens on my plate tonight. This had been the plan. I grabbed myself a shopping cart but passed by kale, chard and collard greens as fast as I could. I am bad with new years resolutions! Let’s face it, I Weiterlesen



dragon drumsticks

by Eva Felis on September 25, 2011

Having guests over is fun, especially when I am well prepared. I like to have everything done, food in the oven, wine uncorked and the table is laid. Ready to welcome my guests and sit down to chat, eat, drink and have fun. This is my dream-me, the reality is slightly different, it’s not my Weiterlesen
