Weeknight White Chicken Chili

Share

This is a perfect weeknight meal. The whole thing comes together in about 30 minutes and with the cayenne pepper it has a nice kick to it. When it was cooking, I found the consistency to be more like soup than chili, so I added some corn starch mixed with water […]

Chocolate Frosting

Share

There’s nothing better than a good chocolate frosting. The consistency of this one is great and it has a great chocolate flavor.  It’s perfect for squeezing out of a pastry bag.

Looking at the photo, I should have put more frosting on the cupcake.

Did my boys eat this?   Yup.  They loved it. […]

Whole-Wheat Biscuits

Share

My boys are on a biscuit kick. They ask for them almost every night. If only I could get them to ask for a chicken dish, or something with good protein in it every night.

These biscuits are quite easy to make, especially if you have a stand mixer. You basically […]

Slow-Cooker Vegetarian Chili with Sweet Potatoes

Share

I made this chili last weekend.   My sister-in-law used a similar recipe recently and talked about how great it was.    I love the fact that this cooks in a slow-cooker.   I threw everything in the slow-cooker at noon and by 5pm our dinner was ready.   We didn’t eat until 6pm, and the chili was fine […]

Orange Pound Cake

Share

I had a number of left-over Honeybells from my fruit-of-the month club delivery. A big box came last month, and we didn’t eat them fast enough. When fruit hits their peak and is about to go beyond, it’s a great time to cook with it if you’re not going to […]

Black Bean Soup with Sherry

Share

A friend stopped by for lunch last Friday. I had some leftover frittata, but I was afraid that there wasn’t going to be enough, so I whipped up this soup. The recipe popped into my inbox shortly before my friend called, and I had nearly all of the ingredients on hand, so I […]

Chicken and Rice Stoup

Share

According to Rachel Ray, a stoup is a cross between a soup and a stew. I love hearty soups like this, and this one is delicious. The fresh herbs and the lemon zest add a nice punch of fresh flavor. I had been looking for a good chicken soup recipe, […]

Alfajores

Share

My boys loved these cookies, even my caramel-hating son. They’re traditionally a South American cookie (although with variations they’re a Spanish and an Arabic confection as well). The cookie batter has more corn starch in it than flour, which makes these cookies quite tender. They are like shortbread in a […]

Jerk Shrimp Mini Pies

Share

What a treat these little pies are!   We had them for dinner on Sunday night and I wish I had made more.  I do have some extra shrimp in the freezer, so I’ll definitely make these again soon.   The insides have such a great combination of flavors – bacon, shrimp, fresh tomatoes, scallions and lime […]
