Just in time for Christmas and New Years, Here is a family recipe for hot artichoke dip. This is the easiest recipe to make and usually the hit at any party. If you like spicy - add some fresh jalapenos slices or dices for a nice kick!
I created about 30 recipes that use boneless-skinless chicken breasts and this is part of that collection.
You can get boneless, skinless chicken breast at any market. I prefer fresh chicken (although most of it comes frozen from the packer.) If I buy frozen, I like ones that are IQF... or individually quick frozen. For food items that are IQF, they are frozen at a low temperature very quickly.
You know when you find the perfect recipe? It is the recipe that you want to write down, take a picture of, put on the bulletin board? Epicurious.com is one of my favorite sites to get recipes and ideas. I like Epicurious because I can find tested recipes with comments from chef's and home cooks alike.
This recipe for Romaine Wedges with Tangy Blue Cheese Vinaigrette is my go to recipe when I am making a salad for home or taking to someone's house. The recipe was featured in Bon Appetit in April, 2008. Users rated it four stars and 100% would make it again.
Now that it is cooling down a bit, I like to get in the kitchen and prepare soups and stews. My family loves soup, specially when I provide a bunch of toppings for them to "customize" their meal. This recipe was featured in the July 2013 of Better Homes and Gardens however I have altered it a bit from its original form.
Macaroni and cheese is by far my favorite food! And to find a way to incorporate more vegetables into the dish is an added bonus! Cauliflower is a great (and sneaky) addition to macaroni and cheese because its' white color blends into the cheese sauce.
This version is not too cheesy, although it is not beyond me to add some extra to any macaroni and cheeserecipe!
As a busy mom, I appreciate one bowl recipes. If I get up the energy to cook from scratch, cleaning up the kitchen after seems daunting. This recipe mixes all the ingredients in one bowl - saving dish-washing time. They are so delicious and very easy to make. Have fun and enjoy!
