Easy Creamy Chicken Noodle Soup

I am firmly on the side of those folks who think chicken soup is the cure for whatever ails you.  From the flu to a cranky mood, chicken soup can fix it…or at least make you feel a lot better.  And if regular chicken soup is good for whatever’s wrong, creamy chicken soup is, well, magical.  Especially if the creamy chicken soup doesn’t have any actual cream in it.  Good, good for you comfort food…you’re feeling better already, right?  Me too!

Burrata Prosciutto Oregano Pizza

One of the things I try really, really hard to do is to Leave No Ingredient Behind.  You know what I mean…you buy a container of something that you need for a recipe, you use whatever you need from it, and the rest of it looks at you reproachfully every time you open the fridge.  I have this issue constantly with leeks, which hang out in groups of three when I really only need one.  But ever since I set this challenge for myself, I have to say it’s resulted in some unusual and scrumptious suppers that would never have happened any other way.  Take this burrata, prosciutto and oregano pizza, for example.

Coffee Walnut Banana Bread

Tis the season!   And while there is no escaping the whirlwind of shopping and decorating and wrapping and yes, cooking, it’s even more important to grab those little moments that the holidays are here to celebrate.  Decorating the Christmas tree with those finally home for a little while college kids.  Watching Love Actually for the millionth time with your honey.  Taking a nap with your dog in your fleece Grinch pajamas.  And sharing a little sweet something with friends you don’t get to see NEARLY enough.  Something like this sweet and spicy coffee walnut banana bread!

Easy Honey Mustard Salmon

Well, we made it to the other side of another delicious Thanksgiving, and I don’t know about you, but I had some good eats.  Turkey, pumpkin pie, mashed potatoes, pumpkin pie, creamed onions, pumpkin pie, stuffing and did I mention pumpkin pie?  And so now I am beginning to put together the glimmerings of my Christmas menu, but in between now and then I am going to sprinkle in some good and good for you healthy suppers so that I have a fighting chance of fitting into my Levis in 2015.  And one thing we’ll be having more than once is this scrumptious and super easy honey mustard roasted salmon.

Buttered Turkey Breast Roast…and Thankfulness!

Here it comes, one of my favorite holidays of the year!  Yes because of the turkey and all the fixings, and even more because of the friends and family.  I have so much to be thankful for I don’t even know where to start (more on that later)…so while I am figuring that out, let’s talk turkey!  There are various reasons you might need to cook a glorious golden buttered turkey breast instead of a whole turkey.  Maybe your Thanksgiving crowd is a small and intimate one.  Maybe there was no leftover turkey from the big bird (the HORROR!) and you need some more turkey.  Whatever your reason, here’s your delicious answer – and it doesn’t even need be Thanksgiving in order to make it.

Stromboli!  For those of you who have never had the delciousness that is stromboli (which I am going to say many thousands of times in this post because it is so darn fun to say),  it’s basically the love child of pizza and calzone.  With a dash of the best sandwich you’ve ever tasted.  It’s warm and cheesy and spicy and you can customize it pretty much every way you please…and it’s ridiculously easy to make.  What’s the catch?  THERE IS NO CATCH.   There is only…stromboli!
