Episode 267: Braised Chicken, Roasted Lemon Relish, and Treats for the Freezer

This week in Food News, we talk about a story in the Washington Post that asks, “Why did the food media ignore the best selling cookbook of 2018?

In our What’s For Dinner segment, Marisa talks through the recipe for braised chicken, green peppers, onions and tomatoes that she made recently. It’s one her mom used to make and tasted like childhood to her.

In How’d You Make That, Joy shares a roasted lemon relish she made recently as a way of using up some organic lemons that were going south.

Then we talked about making treats and other kitchen staples to stock the freezer.

Finally, in What We’re Loving, it’s all about ranch dressing.

  1. What makes her a food expert?! Oh dear Joy, if only that were a requirement for publishing a cookbook…or a book in any genre these days. And I am very surprised you didn’t even see this book, it is all over amazon ads, which made me suspicious right away. As for how many meatloaf recipes do we need? That can be said for EVERY food category, seriously how many times can the salad/pie/cupcake/pasta dish be reinvented? Sadly the WP link (and not only yours but every one I found online) requires a payment, so I didn’t get a chance to read the article that was so well written. Thanks for another thought provoking and humorous episode! H

    1. I really am not sure how I missed it because since I’ve become aware of it, I have absolutely seen it everywhere!

  2. I have a theory about the ranch-pizza combination, which is that when Buffalo wings became popular as a pizza complement, they used to be accompanied by blue cheese dressing. My best friend in high school in the 90s used to love the pizza-blue cheese combo. As Ranch has grown in popularity, it’s displaced blue cheese. What’s not to love about spicy, acidic tomato sauce cut with a hint of creamy, tangy dressing?!
