Chicken Apple Sausage Patties – Doesn’t Feel Like Chicken

By foodwishes@yahoo.com (Chef John) Imagine a sausage patty made from chicken that’s just as tender, juicy, and flavorful as one made from pork. What? A not-dry, not-rubbery feeling chicken-based sausage? Sounds impossible, and it is, unless you sneak in a little bit of pancetta, and follow a few simple techniques.

Face Pie – The Halloween Pastry You Can’t Un-See

By foodwishes@yahoo.com (Chef John) A few months ago I saw a pie image on Twitter so creepy, and disturbing, that I actually questioned whether it was too terrifying to post as a video. Usually, Halloween-themed recipes have the opposite problem, as they are almost never actually scary, but that’s not an issue here. By the way, can someone get sued for giving people nightmares? Anyway, I eventually traced the image back to what I assumed would be some sort of food blog, but it was actually someone’s Etsy shop, where they were selling inedible versions of this basic design. So, I wasn’t able to …read more

Granted, even some foods I wouldn’t consider finger friendly become so but that’s just life with a small child. However, sandwiches, quesadillas, and fritters are all weekly staples.
These quinoa cakes have been around for a bit but I’ve updated it to be a bit easier and really, just better. You can serve them by themselves but they also work on salads or even tucked in a pita. I like to make a big batch and use them as …read more
