Remember a few days ago when I said the next few weeks on this here website were going to be a mix of super easy recipes and super fancy recipes? Welcome to the fancy part…I give you these very dramatic, very scrumptious, very holiday-colored crab towers! And I know, they LOOK all complicated, but remember this is me you are talking to, and I don’t do complicated. So if you are looking for a show-stopper first course for your holiday table, look no further and let’s make them!
I do love a good pot pie, and I love it even more when the pot pie crust is made out of creamy, dreamy mashed potatoes. And I also love dishes that I can make ahead and then just bake up later when things are busy. I get all of this and more with this easy recipe for chicken pot pie with mashed potato crust…the more is the delicious taste of tender chicken with carrots and celery in a light herbed sauce, and did I mention the mashed potato topping? Ready for your new favorite pot pie? Let’s make it!
Oh, I love and adore this soup. For richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, til death do us part, I love this soup, and true love lasts forever. I first posted this recipe in the very early days of my blog, and except for the pictures and a couple of little tweaks, this recipe HAS in fact lasted forever…or for the past 8 years, anyhow. Packed with veggies, pasta and little baby meatballs, this soup has something for everyone. Ready for some soup happiness? Let’s make it!
I have said it before and I’ll say it again: I am not a good sharer when it comes to my favorite eats. I want my own personal bowl of popcorn, I want my own personal French toast muffin, and do not even THINK of snagging one of my pieces of bacon. Which is why I am head over heels with this recipe for beef and blue cheese pot pies, because this delectable conglomeration of beef and veggies cooked up in a beer and mustard sauce and laced with blue cheese and covered in pastry gets made in individual little dishes. Meaning I get my very own. Meaning you get your very own. Let’s make it!
This rosemary chicken soup is one of my best comfort food recipes. It’s a warm and wonderful conglomeration of tender chicken and vegetables simmered up with the nutty taste of barley, and infused with one of my favorite herbs, aromatic rosemary. It’s perfection on a chilly winter day, when you are snuggled under your favorite blanket on the sofa, holding a warm mug of soup in your hands with a fire crackling in the fireplace and your favorite movie about to begin. It’s chicken soup wonderfulness at its most wonderful. Let’s make it!
Ah, this easy and elegant shrimp and baby potato salad! Shrimp is constantly on the menu at our house. Besides the fact that they are Delicious and Nutritious, I’ve psychoanalyzed the reasons why they show up on my menu as much as they do and here’s what I’ve come up with. Along with this recipe of course…let’s make it!
