Did You Know...

An espresso has less caffeine than a cup of coffee?

A cup of drip brewed coffee has about 115 milligrams of caffeine, an espresso (and percolated coffee) about 80mg, while instant coffee has about 65mg of caffeine. Decaffeinated coffee is not totally caffeine free, containing about 3mg of caffeine. A 8oz can of Coca-Cola has about 23mg of caffeine, Pepsi Cola 25mg, Mountain Dew 36mg, and TAB 31mg. Tea has about 40mg of caffeine, while an ounce of chocolate contains about 20mg.
The first Espresso machine was introduced in 1822 by the French, but it was the Italians who perfected and distributed it.

Take advantage of the change in season and learn how to properly clean your HVAC system with these tips.

Baked Chicken With Onion and Leeks:
 
Ingredients
  • 2 cups thinly sliced onions
  • 1 cup thinly sliced and washed leek, white and light green part only
  • 4 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 2 teaspoons fresh thyme leaves
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 1/2-3 pounds bone-in chicken pieces (thighs, drumsticks and/or breasts), skin removed, trimmed (see Tip)
  • 1/4 cup Dijon mustard
  • 2 teaspoons minced shallot
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1 teaspoon reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 3/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
 
Preparation
  1. Preheat oven to 400ºF.
  2. Toss onions, leek, garlic, 2 tablespoons oil, thyme and salt in a large bowl until the vegetables are well coated. Spread the mixture in a nonreactive 9-by-13-inch baking dish (see Tip). Place the chicken pieces on the vegetables. Bake for 10 minutes.
  3. Whisk mustard, shallot, rosemary, soy sauce and pepper in a small bowl; gradually whisk in the remaining 1 tablespoon oil.
  4. After 10 minutes, brush the chicken with the mustard glaze. Continue baking until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of a leg or breast (without touching bone) registers 165°F, 30 to 45 minutes more. Serve the chicken with the vegetables.
