There is nothing more comforting than a pot full of a warm and wonderful stew bubbling away on the stove, and I have a whole lot of beef and chicken stews on this site that I go back to time and again for just that reason. This particular recipe for spiced red wine beef stew is one that I pull out right around this time of year, because not only does it have all that wonderful beef stew thing going on, but it also includes cinnamon and cloves and nutmeg and red wine, and oh my my. It’s holiday perfect. It’s chilly evening perfect. It’s time…let’s make it!
Yes, I know this is my second soup recipe in a row, but whether you are in the mood for Italian wedding soup or this silky, hearty chicken avocado soup, soup is what’s on the menu because it is finally FALL. Fire in the fireplace, leaves crunching under foot, time to get out your favorite sweater season, and there’s no better way to welcome in the delightfully crisp fall weather than with a nice bowl of soup.
This chicken artichoke soup is one of my current faves, because it has all the creaminess of a cream bisque, but with no cream. Nope, the artichokes join forces with a few other veggies and your blender to magically transform into creamy, healthy soup deliciousness. Let’s make it!
See that platter of citrus shrimp deliciousness? As much as I wish I could claim credit for what is now my absolute favorite summertime shrimp recipe, all of this deliciousness is coming to us from my friend Robyn and her delectable ADD A PINCH cookbook. More below on why this is my current cookbook obsession, but for right now I need to tell you that this is a super quick, super easy, super scrumptious recipe of tropical shrimp heaven.
So, if you want to fall head over heels with a perfect shrimp supper AND a fabulous new cookbook, come along with me and let’s make it!
Spaghetti with garlic bread crumb wine sauce is one of my favorite pasta recipes EVER, and every time I make this one the Southern husband and I look at each other and say, why don’t we make this more often? But absence makes the heart grow fonder, and I am VERY fond of how this looks, tastes, and is so very easy to throw together at the end of a long day. I need this. You need this. Let’s make it!
This recipe definitely ranks in the top ten of my favorites for entertaining, because it is utterly easy, utterly reliable, utterly delicious and takes a grand total of 15 minutes to cook up. Tender shrimp, sassy feta cheese, crispy crunchy breadcrumbs, served up with a sprinkle of parsley and a squeeze of lemon juice. We are talking supper heaven here. And ps, if you don’t have a dinner party in your immediate future, this is is just as good on a regular old weeknight. Let’s make it!
I am literally obsessed with this recipe for cauliflower tuna salad. OBSESSED. Because not only is it scrumptiously delicious, and not only is it a complete and total shake-up of regular old tuna salad, it is also pretty dang healthy. Especially if you don’t load it up with bacon to the extent that I did when I took this picture, because while Everything Is Better With Bacon, this recipe is also fabulous without it (and more on that later).
So here’s one of the reasons for my obsession…let’s make it!
