Make A Fist. Then Read This Card.
So I just learned about something cool today called Kobushi Shindan. Have any of you heard about it? Kobushi Shindan (literally, 'fist analysis' in Japanese) is an ancient samurai personality test. All you need to do to take it is make a fist! So make a fist, any fist, and find out what your personal fist form says about you! Fist #1: Your thumb rests on your index finger. People with this fist shape tend to be natural leaders. You like helping others and, likewise, appreciate being leaned on for support. However, despite a strong exterior, you have the tendency to be a bit insecure. In relationships, you are extremely devoted and expect that same kind of loyalty in return. You put others before yourself, and since you're not necessarily good at words, you put that love into compassionate action. Fist #2: Your thumb rests in the middle of your fist. You're a free-spirit with a wide range of talents and plenty of friends. However, you tend to be afraid to try new things because you fear failure. And despite the fact you have a wide group of friends, the amount of friends you consider close is considerably smaller. In love, that fear of failure makes it hard for you to begin romantic relationships, but because of your kind and sociable nature, you're a pretty attractable potential mate! Fist #3: You tuck your thumb underneath fingers. You're much more introverted than the other two personality types. You're a sensitive and private person, and while you don't have a huge social network, the few friends you do have are extremely close and loyal to you. You hate conflict and tend to internalize your feelings, but your compromising nature makes you very attentive in your romantic relationships, which tends to make them pretty long-term. So which fist did you guys get? Do you think Kobushi Shindan has got you all figured out, or are there some things you disagree with?

Add olive oil to pan and turn stove to medium high. When oil becomes hot, add in chicken, searing both sides until they are brown and the skin is crispy. Turn off stove. Preheat oven to 425F. 2. Squeeze juice from one lemon. In a small bowl, combine lemon juice and 1/2 tsp garlic and herb seasoning. Brush chicken skins and top of chicken thighs generously with lemon juice mixture. In a separate bowl, add leftover lemon juice mixture, chicken broth, garlic, remaining garlic and herb seasoning. Taste to see if you want to add salt and pepper. If so, add at this point. Pour mixture into the pan. It should only cover the bottom of the chicken, leaving the skin exposed so it can remain crispy. 3. Thinly slice your second lemon. Place lemons into your pot, submerging them into the broth. Add rosemary to the broth if using. 4. Transfer pot from stove to oven. Let chicken bake for about 20-25 minutes until done.

Baked Chicken Parmesan Meatballs in Tomato Cream Sauce
Meatballs in tomato sauce are the best comfort when you're fighting an unrelenting cold. This can be eaten alone with bread or they would be great over pasta, quinoa, on a sandwich or maybe even cut up and added to a pizza. Enjoy! Yield: 6-8 servings For the sauce: 1 (28 oz.) can whole tomatoes, liquid reserved 1 tbsp. butter ¼ cup finely chopped onion 1½ tbsp. tomato paste 2 cloves garlic, minced ½ tsp. red pepper flakes Salt and pepper, to taste 1/3 cup heavy cream or half-and-half For the meatballs: ½ cup dried panko 1/3 cup grated onion 1 tsp. dried parsley 1 tsp. dried basil ½ cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese 3/4 tsp. kosher salt ¼ tsp. ground black pepper 3 cloves garlic, minced 1 large egg, lightly beaten 1½ lbs. ground chicken 2 tbsp. olive oil To finish: 4 oz. shredded mozzarella 2 tbsp. freshly grated Parmesan 2-3 tbsp. minced fresh basil (optional) INSTRUCTIONS: To make the sauce, add the tomatoes to a blender or food processor. Puree until smooth, adding a bit of the reserved liquid if necessary to smooth the mixture out. Melt the butter in a large, deep skillet or sauté pan over medium-high heat. Add the onion and cook about 1 minute, until it begins to soften. Stir in the tomato paste, garlic and red pepper flakes and mix just until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Stir in the tomato mixture, lower the heat to a simmer, and cook about 5-8 minutes, until the sauce is slightly thickened. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the cream. Set aside. To make the meatballs, combine the panko, grated onion, parsley, basil, Parmesan, salt, pepper, garlic and egg. Stir together with a fork just until blended. Mix in the ground chicken and knead together gently until evenly combined. Form the mixture into meatballs about 1½-inch in diameter. Preheat the oven to 400˚ F. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet or Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add the meatballs to the pan in a single layer. Let cook, turning occasionally, until all sides are browned. Once all of the meatballs are browned, place them in the pan with the tomato sauce. Sprinkle the mozzarella and additional Parmesan over the top. Bake until the cheese is fully melted and bubbling and the meatballs are cooked through, about 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and garnish with the fresh basil. Serve warm.
Baked Chicken Nuggets Stuffed with Mozzarella
Ingredients For the chicken nuggets: 1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 2-inch pieces ½ teaspoon salt ⅛ teaspoon black pepper 1.5 oz. mozzarella cheese, cut into strips (about 1.5" x ⅓" x ⅓") 1 cup Panko bread crumbs ⅓ cup finely grated Parmesan cheese ½ teaspoon garlic powder ¼ teaspoon Italian seasoning 1 tablespoon olive oil ⅓ cup all-purpose flour 2 large eggs, lightly beaten For the honey mustard yogurt dip: ⅓ cup Greek yogurt 2 tablespoons honey 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard 2 teaspoons freshly squeezed lemon juice pinch of salt and pepper, to taste Instructions Preheat oven to 400 F degrees.

Make sure the strips go all the way into the chicken but doesn't come out the other side. Place flour and eggs in separate shallow dishes. Working in batches, dredge chicken in flour (shaking off excess), dip into eggs, then dredge in Panko mixture, pressing to coat. Transfer to the rack. Bake until the chicken is cooked through, 10 to 12 minutes. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the yogurt, honey, Dijon mustard and lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
