Food Gold: Sammy Bananas’ Roast Lemon Rosemary Chicken

Posted on Jan 21st, 2011 by Elliot Aronow

OG Food Gold contributor Sammy Bananas returns!

Who Likes Chicken? Over the past few years I’ve been working on a simple but damn good recipe for Roast Chicken. The result is straightforward and hard to screw up, but a serious mouth waterer.

I’ve gotta give a shout here to my lovely girlfriend Mari, who introduced this approach to me, and has helped shape it into a winner. Read below to find out the juicy (and I do mean juicy) details!

Food Gold: Improv Risotto

Posted on Feb 24th, 2010 by Elliot Aronow

One of my favorite things to cook when I have a bunch of stuff in my freezer that I want to put to good use (that sounds much more appetizing than “get rid of”) is a risotto. For this one, I used frozen green peas and some frozen shrimp and I was so pleased with the results I decided to share it with all y’all foodies.
