Roast Chicken Legs with Grapes and Shallots
People are often intimidated by the prospect of cooking real food from scratch. But cooking is neither arcane nor magical - it's an approachable art, and one that is often quite forgiving. It can also be a less involved process than many imagine. My brother and I joke that Rachel Ray has nothing on us: he's been known to make pasta from scratch, saute a chicken breast, and top it off with a homemade sauce in 30 minutes, and I regularly make Belgian waffles, fresh whipped cream, and fruit compote - again, entirely from scratch - well within that time frame. If you're not sure where to start or are looking to expand your repertoire, the Technique section will offer some useful tips. Try the recipes, don't be afraid to experiment, and share your results. And above all, remember to have fun!
