There's a new lettuce in town - it's called Salanova! I discovered it at the farmer's market last week. It was so pretty, I had to ask what it is called.

I decided to skip using any...

Braised Chicken with Dried Figs, Honey and Lemon

I have always been a fan of fresh figs and this summer stumbled across dried ones at my favorite local Turkish shop. I tried them stuffed with gorgonzola and wrapped in prosciutto baked in the oven. Wow. Simply delicious. So when my favorite Schwabe and I recently travelled to the beautiful Peloponnese region of Greece, and discovered locally grown Kalamata dried figs, I decided to give them another go,...
