Sourdough crackers


Don’t all these crackers look the same?

This recipe is actually¬†very different from the others. It’s made with discarded sourdough starter from a King Arthur Flour recipe.

They taste kind of like cheese crackers. And they use a good amount of starter. Win-win.


Latino-style Chicken and Brown Rice


Another excellent recipe from The America’s Test Kitchen Healthy Family Cookbook — Latino-Style Chicken and Brown Rice.

This is very similar to Arroz Con Pollo recipes I’ve made before, except this is designed for brown rice and it has more going on. Green olives, capers, roasted red peppers, green bell pepper. It feels more like a meal than just white rice and chicken in a pot.

This takes almost an hour in the oven, so it needs to be started at least an hour and a half or two hours before dinner.

Also, I always add a bit more salt and more oil than the recipes in this cookbook call for. For example, this one starts with just a teaspoon of canola in the pan to saute the onions and green pepper. I add about a tablespoon. I don’t think that’s going to push us over the the limit for fat tonight.
