New year, new dishes to cook at home


We hope your New Year’s was filled with lots of good luck and hopeful thoughts about the year ahead. On Instagram, we enjoyed seeing how you rang in 2017 with delicious food through the #Austin360Cooks hashtag.

Last week, Elizabeth Lindemann, who writes the blog Bowl of Delicious (@bowlofdelicious, bowlofdelicious.com), shared her photo and recipe for a paleo chicken salad that’s both mayo-free and dairy-free. It was the most popular recipe on her site last year and is a great fit if you’re doing the Whole30, a 30-day paleo diet from Melissa and Dallas Hartwig.

Lindemann suggests cooking the chicken — a whole chicken or bone-in, skin-on breasts — in a slow cooker with a little water for about 6 hours on low. When you’re storing the salad, press a layer of plastic wrap on top to reduce any browning of the avocado.

You can find the full recipe at bowlofdelicious.com.

Nomadic brewers put down roots

Chris Lohring surveyed America’s beer scene in 2010 and decided to play the contrarian. Rather than mimic the popular and potent stouts and India pale ales, he would specialize in low-alcohol, high-taste “session beers,” as he called them. To lenders, though, the business plan held as much appeal as flat beer. So Lohring kept costs...
Have you forgotten all about pinot grigio during this summer of rosé?
Have you forgotten all about pinot grigio during this summer of rosé?

Here in this glorious summer of rosé, pinot grigio is the odd wine out. It’s not as decisive as sauvignon blanc. It’s not as controversial as chardonnay. It’s the sort of wine one is served on Ladies Drink Free Night at Italian restaurants, cold and inexpensive and a little bit tasteless. Since there is no such thing as bad...
