- WHO'S THAT GIRL: A higher education obsessed foodie who is documenting her life in the kitchen. I love to cook delicious, gourmet-style foods for those I love and always welcome a challenge in the kitchen. With that challenge comes an impromptu nature. I tend to avoid following recipes to the exact, so you are not likely to find very many posted here. Being that I am a Libra and am learning to be free in the kitchen, the story always goes, "A pinch of this and a smattering of that!" Thank you for visiting -- and happy reading!

FOOD CHALLENGE: Broth
Alas, I was wrong in making that simple, simple assumption.
But food challenge night, so time to experiment.
I decided to try a three-tiered attempt at cooking chicken: boil it, broil it, then grill it. I omitted step two.
In the end, the concoction was amazing.
I slowly boiled chicken thighs for about 40 minutes. But instead of using water, I used chicken broth. I know, I know. Weird though. Why would I think this up? Not sure, but it worked. Really -- bear with me.
So, yeah, chicken in chicken broth -- but with two bay leaves and some onion salt, pepper, garlic and chives and not sure what else I threw in there at the end.
I prepared some couscous with Parmesan and served the couscous and chicken, slathering the gravy over the mix.
I have cooked gravy I don't know how many times, relying on my material great-grandmother's -- her name was Viola -- recipe of flour, oil and soy sauce, but with the garlic, chives and seasoning this was much more robust.
