In the kitchen: Chicken, Tarragon and Tomatoes

Thank you all so much for the cookbook suggestions. I am really looking forward to going to the bookstore now. In New York, I would have gone straight to Amazon, but here we have the loveliest independent bookstore called Jaffe and Neale. It is the heart and soul of our entire town. I go there at least three times a week - to get a latte, pick up a comic book for my son, pick out a present for a friend or buy myself a new book. Going there is so pleasurable, it makes me think twice about ordering online.

Anyway, I promise to show you the results of my fruit-based baking. In the meantime, here is the chicken, tarragon and tomatoes recipe that some of you had requested. It's easy and delicious. Enjoy!


  1. Amanda, someone said Donna Hay I totally agree, I think she is awesome!!! I think that she has the easiest things for you to do and all very fun! Plus, she uses lots of ingredients that you would find in England. This is a great pie blog called "nothing in the house" http://www.nothinginthehouse.com/. Awesome pies.
    Last suggestion I got some of the best recipes this year from of all places PINTEREST. Pinterest is the best place for all things food!! Good Luck!!

  2. Thanks so much.


  3. I just found your blog yesterday. (A little late to the party!) I love this idea and bought the ingredients today and I will wow my family with this over the weekend!

    I love this blog. I am the mother of a large gaggle of a teenagers and a high school teacher. It's not often you see women COMPLIMENTING EACH OTHER!!! I love that you are constantly pointing out all of the beautiful choices women make rather then critiquing them! I plan on sharing your blog with my teenage daughters. (They will also enjoy reading about your life in England because we chose to move from NY to Vermont.)

    Thank you!
