Food & Wine (July 2014)
We haven't been spending a whole lot of time in the kitchen these past few weeks.
It's been drop dead gorgeous in our nation's capital, and we've been trying to maximize time outdoors, running errands that don't really need to be run and walking far out of our way (sometimes very far) to get a cup of coffee.
Even though we've been in the kitchen less, we've still been eating most of our meals at home. It's weeks like these past few -- when we need food on the table but don't want to spend a lot of time preparing it -- that we often rely on Food & Wine and Bon Appétit. Both magazines have monthly sections featuring recipes that are, in Food & Wine's case, "Quick & Easy," and in Bon Appétit-speak, "Fast, Easy, Fresh." (Possible rejected names? "Expeditious & Elementary"? "Breakneck & Unchallenging"?)
We love these sections because they're reliable sources of dishes that don't take a lot of ingredients or time. We all need those sorts of recipes now and then.
We found this Honey-Ginger Chicken with Lime in Food & Wine's "Quick & Easy" section. It was just the thing we needed on a Monday night.
