Bone Broth

Stolen from Smitten Kitchen's Ultimate Chicken Soup recipe, modified to be bone broth, and also for onion diversity.


1 medium-large yellow onions, unpeeled, halved1 large leek, cleaned and cut lengthwise1 shallot, unpeeled, halved"2" garlic cloves, peeled and smashed a little1 large carrot1 large parnsip 1 celery rib4 pounds of fresh chicken wings1 tablespoon kosher salt1/2 teaspoon dried thyme or 2 teaspoons chopped fresh1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes1 tablespoon tomato paste2 bay leavesAs much water as you can fit in your crock pot basically 

Combine all ingredients in a large (6 quart or larger) slow-cooker. Cook on LOW for 24 hours. Strain. Do NOT attempt to use the chicken for anything; it's super gross. Trust Past Sonja. 

Shishito Peppers

I found this recipe here after trying this dish via Foodler Magic and then seeing that Trader Joe's sells shishito peppers. I used this recipe because the author clearly also loves Trader Joe's.

2 tsp olive oil
2 tsp sesame oil
1 (6 oz) bag of shishito peppers, rinsed
Pinch of crushed red pepper flakes
1 clove of garlic, minced
1 1/2 tbsp soy sauce, more for serving
Toasted sesame seeds

Heat the olive oil and sesame oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the shishito peppers to the skillet and sauté, tossing frequently, until blistered and tender, about 10-12 minutes. Add the crushed red pepper flakes and minced garlic then cook, stirring constantly, for 30 seconds. Add the soy sauce and cook, stirring to coat the peppers evenly, for 1 minute. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and serve with additional soy sauce on t

To toast sesame seeds: put them on a nonstick pan on medium heat for about five minutes, stirring occasionally. They will toast! It's neat!

Zucchini noodles or if you're ambitious, some zucchinis and a zoodler but I mean you only have so many wrists you know?Some olive oilSome garlicTomato paste probablyWhatever else you want Parmesan cheese, but make sure you add that after

Cook at 400 degrees for between 10-20 minutes depending on whatchu got on 'em.
