Today is a pretty exciting day… Not only do I have a recipe for Braised Bay Leaf Chicken for you, but also the first giveaway ever on My Cup is Full! More on all the giveaway later… First we’ll get the food out of the way before we talk about other goodies. The dish today is very easy and uses relatively few ingredients, but has such a flavorful punch that soaks into the meat that your guests (like mine did) will ask you how you made it. The recipe is all the way at the bottom of the post, so don’t forget to take a scroll down to check it out.
This dish is from one of my new favorite cookbooks, Moro. You may have noticed that the garlic sauce with the roast lamb posted earlier this week was also from that cookbook. It’s a fantastic book (despite all the measurements being in Metric units), with cuisine from Spain, North Africa, and the Eastern Mediterranean. It includes ways to create a natural sourdough starter using the yeast from grapes as well as how to make classic sauces like romesco and harissa, along with other dishes that I haven’t seen in any other cookbook, truly earning is space on the shelf.
Now on to how to win fun stuff! My Cup is Full is almost 8 months old now, and it is high time we had a little fun (you know, besides making yummy food). So this week you have the chance to win a $50 gift card to the Provisions Store by Food 52. Provisions is a great site for vintage, unique, and handmade items for your kitchen that are not only well made but also beautiful. They have a wide range of prices and products, from copper pots to unique spices. My favorite recent purchase from them included a Sandwich Wrap Trio (Set of 3) that you can wash and reuse (say goodbye boring plastic baggies!!!), and Double Oven Mitts shown in the picture below that hangs perfectly on my oven door (no more searching for a second hand mitt) and protects my arms as I pull heavy pots from the stove.
A quick heads up about the giveaway: sadly, with the Food 52 Provisions store being so new, they will only ship to addresses within the United States, so only entrants from the United States are qualified to enter. Also, this giveaway is not sponsored by anyone other than me, so the $50 gift card is my personal gift to my readers because I think you’ll enjoy it . 🙂 But do know that there are links in this post and in my sidebar which are affiliate links, and I will earn a commission if you make a purchase through those links. If you’d like to read more about My Cup is Full’s policies, please see our Disclosures Page. Okay, now that the hoops are jumped through, enter below and have fun!
