I love the time spent around the table, the stories told, how when love is present, it’s propelled by our hearts wanting to know each other more—not by competition or proving anything—but true love.

A lovely reminder of a spring evening in our backyard a few years back. The guests arrive, everyone brings a dish, maybe a bottle of wine, and within minutes we’re mingling, catching up, introducing, sharing, and then sitting … HERE, at this table, for hours. (You can also see Billy Balls for decor at this table.)

I love Nigella’s view on food and connecting with others …

‘Food is the vital way we celebrate anything that matters. It’s how we mark the connections between us; how we celebrate life.’ – Nigella Lawson

Rolled Broccolini Curried Chicken Divan


  • 2 bunches broccolini, 1 pound
  • 4-5 boneless skinless chicken breasts, sliced lengthwise in half
  • 4 Tbsp. butter
  • 3 Tbsp. flour
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 cup milk or 1 cup half-and-half
  • 1/2 cup sherry cooking wine
  • 3 Tbsp. curry powder
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese, or more to taste
  • Salt and pepper
  • Panko crumbs


  • Preheat oven to 325.
  • Steam broccoli for 5 minutes until crisp-tender. (I steam in the microwave covered with plastic wrap for 4-5 minutes.) More or less time may be needed, depending on thickness of broccolini. Drain in colander.
  • Slice the chicken lengthwise in half. Salt and pepper each side.
  • In a medium frying pan, melt the butter; whisk in the flour and cook for 1-2 minutes (until no longer lumpy).
  • Gradually whisk in chicken broth, marsala and milk or half and half, until mixed well. Bring to a boil and then reduce to a simmer until the sauce is thickened. Add curry powder. Add 2 cups of the cheese; blend and whisk until combined. Salt and pepper to taste.
  • Add 1 cup of curry sauce to the bottom of a prepared (sprayed) 9×13 pan.
  • Roll a few sprigs of broccolini in each chicken breast; place seam side down in the pan. Continue until pan is full. Heavily salt and pepper both sides.
  • Pour sauce over top and sprinkle with Panko crumbs. Cover with aluminum foil. Make several slits in aluminum foil for steam to escape.
  • Bake for 30 minutes; remove foil and bake an additional 10 minutes to allow the Panko crumbs to get golden.
