Cream of Chicken Soup

Tuesday, March 30, 2010

22 Comments

I always forget how easy soups are to make.     One of my favorite soups is cream of chicken.  For the longest time I would buy the soup from the deli of the grocery store because I quite simply never thought to make it myself.  I am kicking myself about it now because not only […]

Pan Seared Chicken with Creamy Polenta and Bacon

I love one pot dishes.    Anything I can do to save washing up dishes after dinner is always welcome.  Aside from making the washing up easier, building the dish in one pan gives you a unique opportunity to develop some pretty robust flavors.  You never lose any fond, the caramelized bits that get stuck […]

I know a lot of people are looking for clever ways to stretch a dollar while eating well.   It is a topic near to my heart.  Just because I am saving money, however, does not mean I want to stop entertaining or enjoying foods I love.  It just means I have to find clever ways to […]

Orange Chicken with Fried Rice

Growing up I despised what I knew as Chinese food. What we always got was greasy, over breaded, over sauced American take-out Chinese food.  It was terrible.  This aversion became a fairly serious problem for me when I was first invited over to my future mother-in-law’s house for dinner.  She is from Taiwan and was […]

Beef Empanadas

When I entertain I like to have a wide variety of foods available to snack on.  It keeps things from getting boring and it keeps the palate active.   So, when I plan a party of a gathering where little bites will be served I always make something with a Tex-Mex flair.  These empanadas are the […]

Do you remember a few months ago when I posted that a recipe I created won a contest and the prize was a trip to San Francisco? At the time I was not able to share the recipe due to the ‘super-secret’ nature of the contest.  Well, the contest is over and I am free to share, […]

Let’s talk about party food, shall we? When I host, or attend and help cook for, a cocktail party I like to think about finger foods and two-bite dishes that are easy to eat, pretty and not too messy.   I like savory dishes that stand up to a variety of cocktails and beers, and nothing […]

Tex-Mex Potato Cheese Soup

I’ve established that I used to be in a potato rut.  No longer, I am happy to report, and this recipe proves it. Potato soup is something I love to eat but never really make.   The last recipe I tried made a large pot of what can best be described as wall paper paste.  So, […]

Four Cheese Potato Gratin

Sometimes you just need potatoes. We eat a fair amount of potatoes in my house.  They are versatile, easy to prepare and really the best starchy comfort food going, aside from macaroni and cheese which is the king of comfort food as far as I am concerned. All that said, I do get a little tired […]

Triple Citrus Skirt Steak

I love a good juicy steak.   One of my favorite cuts of beef is the skirt steak.  It is so flavorful, and if prepared properly it is very tender and juicy.  For the most part I use skirt steak for fajitas, and it does make some spectacular fajitas, but when I came across a […]
