Chicken - it's cheap and it's chic! 

This course is for you if you want to learn tasty, classic chicken recipes for your every day rotation, or if you'd like to entertain at home more. Recipes range from pan-seared and poaching to Insta-worthy presentations of whole roasted birds or something super French, like Chicken Cordon Bleu. 

We'll also cover best practices for handling raw chicken - how long it can keep in the refrigerator or freezer and how to minimize contamination. 

Because there are SO many chicken recipes out there, this course focuses on (1) basic techniques that give good chicken regardless of the ingredients and (2) the most well-known dishes out there, with some expansion for cultural exploration. Over time, I hope to expand more on global chicken recipes but the criteria for this expansion will always be that the ingredients have to be easily accessible. 

I've researched multiple cookbooks and blogs to find recipes that aren't too fussy and only use easily accessible ingredients. You should be able to find most everything in your local grocery store. If there's a special ingredient, I'll include other recipes you can use it in as an outside resource link. 

Recipes come from a variety of sources and this video course is just a demonstration of how each recipe can look. If you've never made it before, how do you know you're doing it right? Occasionally, I make a mistake - and I show you anyway to prove that your cooking will not be perfect and it's still wonderful! 

Recipes will include gluten, dairy, and soy. Also note that raw poultry is not telegenic (meaning, it does not look pretty on camera). 


Cook The Best Eggs: Techniques, Cooking Demos, & Recipes

The incredible, edible egg - no longer the cholesterol-monster it was once deemed and a staple in food cultures around the world. 

You could spend your valuable time sifting through dozens of blogs on cooking eggs how you like them. Or you can take this course & get the exact information you need & want for your ideal egg. Let me cut through the noise, test the methods, & research the most straight-forward techniques to make your cooking experience as delicious as your imagination can conjure. 

The egg is a humble work-horse ingredient, an elegant meal, & a hunger-satiating treasure. Its delicate proteins react to varying heat & moisture conditions to transform into dozens of creations. From creamy whites to runny or jammy yolks, light and fluffy omelets, & frittatas so packed with vegetables you can eat a slice like a piece of pizza. 

In the US, it is typical breakfast fare, but elsewhere, like in France, it is the most refined of dinners. Eggs may be a cheap grocery item, but don't let that fool you from treating them with the utmost of culinary respect. Combine a couple of vegetables with a grain & add an egg to make a simple, complete meal. Drop an egg into a vegetable soup for an extra protein boost. Top a grain salad with an egg & pair with a lettuce salad for a nutrient-packed lunch. Add an egg to your favorite sandwich for a gooey treat. 

For dieters, eggs are an integral piece to nutrient intake & to feeling full - both strong indicators of the likelihood of staying on a diet & experiencing success. 

In this course, you'll be guided through video demonstrations of the most common methods to cook eggs & how to cook them exactly how you like them. You'll also be educated on egg myths. The suggested methods aren't anything hokey, but are, instead, based on science - how the egg proteins react to different types & levels of heat.

Student Testimonial: "I love your course so far. I wish I discovered it 22 years ago when I first got married! But it's never too late to improve yourself, I am very happy with your suggestions."

"Every item that Jenna recommended is one that I've been using often since I've watched the course"

My goal is for you to feel equipped to make savvy, resourceful choices with building your kitchen. That each time you cook, you think "I'm so glad I have this." 

1.5 hours of on-demand video: 

  1. this course will walk you through the best recommendations for which cookware equipment to invest in, so you spend your money wisely;

  2. then we get into what basic ingredients to keep stocked in your kitchen so you can always put together a flavorful, simple, nutritious meal without relying on a recipe every time you want to cook;

  3. and finally, we talk about what to do if you don't get around to using your fresh food or to eating your cooked food.

The course does not get into specific food preparation nor does it provide recipes or cooking techniques. It does, however, show HOW to use the recommended cookware.

The information in the course is based on equipment and ingredients typical to the US, however, I've tried to keep it basic enough that it can translate to any country/culture.
