Spicy Mango Margarita with Jalapeño Infused Tequila

My Recipes
The real reason I look forward to the Super Bowl every year? This chicken bog. I’ve made it countless times since it’s the kind of thing that can simmer away all day and play nicely with all of the chips, dips, and cheesy stuff on the snack table. I shared my version over @food52 (link in profile) 📷: @jamesransom_nyc
Tonight’s dinner: chicken brined in buttermilk and pickle juice then roasted at high heat, plus potatoes with cornichon butter. Not sure I’ve ever gotten a crispier-skinned, more deeply bronzed bird, so maybe there’s something to this method! 🤔🥘🍗🥔🥒
Over @food52, I wrote about this curried lentil shakshuka, one of my new go-to’s for nights when pizza delivery on speed dial is soooo very tempting! Article/recipe link in profile! ????: @sassykitchen
My dream salad: burrata, shaved fennel, white beans, lemon, hot nduja vinaigrette ✨
My husband’s birthday dinner: braised short ribs with fennel and black olives (a favorite Paula Wolfert recipe that I’ve adapted for the Instant Pot); couscous; and roasted carrots with vinegar and honey (a la @jj__mc). To drink: a bottle of red burgundy that my husband’s mom gave him many years ago for his birthday. So worth the wait. #happybirthdaydinner
Sunday night dinner experiment: inside-out Chinese egg roll salad, where the filling of a typical egg roll (cabbage, pork, carrot, etc.) is the salad and the wrappers are baked until crispy and torn into croutons.
Staying cozy and warm with a fire in the fireplace and the oven cranked up high for this ricotta-roasted cauliflower with salami gremolata, which tastes like cauliflower crossed with ricotta pizza ?. Jubelale by @deschutesbeer makes a fine pair. Happy weekend, all!!
The warm chicken salad from @merrillstubbs on @food52 is a gift that keeps on giving. ✨
Baked Summer Pasta Salad
Dinner tonight: this baked summer pasta salad that's got all of the ingredients of a typical pasta salad, but they're layered and baked in a cast-iron skillet. The thing I like most? As the ? spill their juice and the ? renders it fat, they dress the whole salad. Boom, easiest warm bacon dressing ever! ? #madeinstaub #mightysalads
