Pumpkin Scones with Cinnamon Sugar Glaze - I Say Nomato

Hello, I’m Cristina from I Say Nomato, and Happy Thanksgiving!

No, you’re not crazy. This coming weekend is Canadian Thanksgiving, which is almost exactly like American Thanksgiving, just without the funny hats. I don’t complain though, it just means I have an excuse to pin delicious Thanksgiving food for even longer!


And really, what is more ‘Thanksgiving’ than pumpkin? It’s so versatile. There’s the classic Pumpkin Pie, pumpkin custards, soups… and now these scones.

They’re so easy to throw together, you’ll want them every morning! Adapted from my dear friends, Rombauer, Rombauer and Becker (HA! I wish!) and the Joy of Cooking, these scones are incredibly simple. [Read more…]

Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Muffins

Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Muffins

Last week, Austin experienced some super odd weather. Not only did it rain eight days in a row, but we also set a record low for August. Crazy town! Because of the rain, I was stuck indoors more than usual. I had more time on my hands than I expected, so I realized I could have a little fun in the kitchen. Usually, I avoid turning my oven on as much as possible in the month of August, but the cooler weather opened up the possibility of baking. [Read more…]

Garlic Chardonnay Chicken Thighs with Mushrooms and Peas

Garlic Chardonnay Chicken Thighs with Mushrooms and Peas

Chicken for me is the perfect main dish for spring or summer and entertaining. When I think of bbq’s or picnics, a good chicken is always a crowd pleaser. There are so many ways to make chicken to please the masses, but I have found a recipe for chicken that is quick to prepare, not too expensive and also looks like an elegant dish.

I had threw a Farm-to-Table Potluck and wanted to make my Garlic Chicken Thighs with Mushrooms and Peas in a Chardonnay sauce. The sauce is so delicate and delicious and it goes perfect with the tender meat of the chicken thigh.


Garlic Chardonnay Chicken Thighs with Mushrooms and Peas

I have never made chicken thighs before, so I was a little intimidated. I wanted to use the thighs because they are so versatile. They are almost impossible to overcook and dry out. That can always be a problem for me because I always want to make sure my chicken it cooked all the way through. With chicken thighs, it is a more forgiving cut.

I went with the bone-in skinless chicken thigh. I wanted to keep the bone in for easier eating since I was making this dish for a potluck. It can be eaten with your hands, or a fork and knife. Whichever your guests prefer.

The sauce with this dish compliments the chicken thighs in a way that you will want to lick your plate. The fresh vegetables of the mushrooms and english peas makes it a perfect dish. The sauce is a savory heaven that is perfect for the juicy chicken

If you are a fan of a crisp refreshing Chardonnay, you will love this sauce. The wine I used was 2012 Katherine’s Vineyard Chardonnay from Cambria winery. I made this dish for a Farm-to-Table Potluck event that was hosted by Cambria. I love their wine because it was the perfect Chardonnay for this sauce and when you pair this wine to drink with this dish, your guests will love you.
