Tyson Crispy Chicken Strips with Prosciutto & Basil Marinara over Spaghetti Squash

Tyson Crispy Chicken Strips with Prosciutto & Basil Marinara over Spaghetti Squash

We are following up our previous post of Crispy Chicken Cordon Bleu Stromboli with another recipe that features Tyson Crispy Chicken Strips.  The reason is simple and twofold:  A)  These 100% all-natural strips of crispy chicken from Tyson are delicious and B) We had half a bag remaining in the freezer, following yesterday's recipe.  Tonight we are dressing things up just a bit.  Don't confuse ...

Holiday Wonton Kisses from Platter Talk

Holiday Wonton Kisses

It’s been cookie week in our house.   We’ve made ginger cookies, and cherry cookies, and fudge crinkle cookies, and even made-up cookies.  Confession Time:  I could make cookies until next Christmas.   Just to keep thing interesting, this post is not about a cookie per se, perhaps something more between a cookie and a pie.   …

Food Flash! Save that Onion.

Cry today and smile for days to come – that is when you need to add some onion to that broth, those beans, or even that salad.  Up until recently we always seemed to end up wasting a good portion of onion that may have been in excess of what a particular recipe called for. …

Garlic and Ginger Chicken Pizza

I’ve touched upon what I consider to be my most revered of culinary creations, once or twice in the past here on Platter Talk.   There was the Garlic and Oregano Pizza  that I put together last June,  along with my pizza dough recipe.  Then, a few months later when faced with some leftover buratta cheese,…

Chocolate-Pomegranate-Ginger Bark

A couple of weeks ago, we were at a friend’s home one Saturday evening.  There were a handful of adults, and a handful of kids as well – a pretty good mix.  For food, my friend echoed the company he had over.  The main course was a variety of delicious sub sandwiches and a big…

Open Face Apple Pie

Believe it or not, we still have a few apples from our tree that were begging to be baked.  Over the past few weeks, I’ve been up to my elbows in pies.  Making some for work, some for the kids, and for the generous family who bought my “Pie a month for a Year” at…

Hi, I’m Dan and I’m a snacker.  Are there any others in our presence among that persuasion?   I see one hand going up – good, good.  O.K., there’s another – and another.  Come on people, hands up if you’ve been known to enjoy a good snack.  I need to share something with all of…

Steel Cut Oats with Fresh Cranberries

By the time you see this post, the l-tryptophan from the day’s turkey overdose is likely kicking in and I hope you are kicking back and basking in a warm and cozy post postprandial bliss.   I’m pretty certain that breakfast options for Black Friday are almost at the very bottom of your concerns, right…

Chicken Piccata

This was a fun dinner to make.  For a few minutes, I felt almost like a a real “cook” as I juggled the various components, the mixing, the dredging, the sauteing, and coordinating the timing of the risotto so everything arrived on the platter at the same time.  Picatta is one of those dishes with…

Kale and Egg Bruschetta

We put these together this first weekend of the new year at our small cottage on a small lake in the middle of Nowhere, Wisconsin.  The boys had every intention of doing some ice fishing but the slushy temps on Saturday kept them indoors watching movies, playing checkers and the board game of sequence.  On…

Cottage Cake with Whipped Frosting

The weekend started out innocently enough.  We, including 5 of our boys and a rather lazy English bulldog named Ellie, headed up to our little cottage on a little lake in the middle of Nowhere, Wisconsin to enjoy a little family time.  As the drive progressed, I knew that I didn’t feel just right.  What…
