We are smack at the point of the year where I am really, really, REALLY missing the outside grill, and while the Southern husband would cheerfully stand in the snow and grill me anything I want, I have trouble sending him out into the cold dark night to cook dinner. And what I especially miss is our old favorite recipe for rosemary grilled chicken. So it finally became NECESSARY for me to figure out an oven version of it, which leads me to this recipe for roasted buttermilk chicken. Tender and juicy and just the thing to get us all through these last weeks of winter. Ready for a taste of summer from your warm cozy kitchen? Let’s make it!
I have no idea why it has take me this long to share the best granola recipe ever with you, because this is one of the oldest and most beloved recipes in our kitchen. It’s one that the Southern husband will take it upon himself to make if I’ve gone too long in between batches, because he pretty much can’t live without this conglomeration of nuts, grains and raisins all held together with a sweet and crunchy coating of cinnamon and molasses.
But as they say, better late then never…so let’s make it!
I had a brief and intense fling with cauliflower during my brief and intense fling with the Atkins diet…the one that says you can have all the bacon that you want, so long as you don’t even THINK about eating one single solitary carbohydrate. Somewhere along the line I realized that pureed cauliflower tasted remarkably close to potatoes, which were forbidden.
Atkins and I had to break up quickly due to my inability to live without pasta, but one of the best things it gave me was a love for all things cauliflower…which in turn has lead to this scrumptious roasted cauliflower soup. Ready to get more delicious cauliflower into your life? Let’s make it!
Okay, the recipe for gnocchi macaroni and cheese comes with a saga, and for once it does not involve me. Nope, it involves my sweet little sister, and it has a happy ending, but just let me say that if there was ever a saga that was calling out for Extreme Comfort Food it’s this one. And this gnocchi macaroni and cheese is comfort food to the MAX. Soft pillows of gnocchi nestled in cheddar cheese, and preferably served up in your very favorite bowl. Ready to both hear more about the saga and the gnocchi? Let’s make it!
I do love a good slow cooker recipe, and a good slow cooker recipe that involves bourbon is guaranteed to make the Southern husband’s eyes light up. This particular recipe for slow cooker bourbon chicken and broccoli takes those two perfectly innocent ingredients and zings them up with a slightly BBQ-like sauce.
The chicken is going to slowly cook all day long to tender, shreddable perfection in that sauce, and then you are going to toss in some broccoli because we need our green veggies. And then everyone at your supper table is going to sigh with happiness. Ready for some slow cooker fun? Let’s make it!
So, this recipe for shrimp artichoke pot pie almost didn’t make it onto the blog, because try as I might, I couldn’t get a picture that I was happy with. And usually when that happens, I usually don’t post about the recipe, because for me and my little blog, it’s as much about the picture as it is the recipe. But this one…this recipe was just too dang good and easy for me to not break all my rules and post a less-than-wonderful picture, and when you take a bite of this one you will understand. Ready for a whole new take on pot pie? Let’s make it!
