Creamy Chicken and Dumpling Soup Recipe

    There are few things in this world that I enjoy more than a hot bowl of chicken and dumpling soup when it is 2° outside.  Fortunately, there’s been a ton of soup making and eating lately, unfortunately it’s absolutely freezing outside making it dang near impossible to leave the house.  Every time I step outside I want to smack myself thinking about me complaining that it was too hot out way back in August.  HOW DARE I!!  Most of the country are actually feeling the effects of this cold winter, which makes this creamy chicken and dumpling soup…

Lemon Herb Flattened Chicken with Root Vegetable Panzanella Salad

Let me first start by saying how much I’ve enjoyed creating these videos for you guys and this Lemon Herb Flattened Chicken with Root Vegetable Panzanella Salad may be one of my favorites.  I’ve only done a few of these long form videos, i.e. 10 mintues +, but still I like being able to share in more detail what and why I’m doing it instead of cramming so much cooking information into a 1 minute video.  No offense but I don’t carry any more about those and I’m not going to cook recipes that can be prepared in 20 minutes,…

Leftover Turkey Gumbo Recipe with Shrimp and Brown Rice

Every year after thanksgiving I have a ton of leftover food.  Whether it be mashed potatoes, vegetables or turkey, it’s a mess of food that could feed the entire neighborhood.  I usually eat a few turkey sandwiches or make turkey pot pies, but man this year I’m totally going to change things up!  I’m going to make a turkey gumbo with shrimp, andouille, ham, and brown rice!  I’m sick of eating the same old thing, in fact if our family wasn’t so married to turkey I’d be eating a big ol’ prime rib roast!  What I need to do is…

Hickory Smoked White Chicken Chili Recipe

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of BUSH’S Beans. The opinions and text are all mine. There are few cooking techniques I’ve enjoyed lately more than the art of smoking food. Not only does the food come out so flavorful, tender and juicy, I literally get a standing ovation from my neighbors from the wonderful smells that fill our block. Smoking food is one of the oldest forms of cooking, and it was mostly used to preserve meats since back in early centuries of the world there was no refrigeration. Nowadays it’s used to incorporate delicious…

Oven Roasted Whole Curry Chicken with Vegetables and Rice

Now that school is back in session I’ve been looking to get more creative with simple to prepare meals.  Not that I wasn’t before, it’s just that I had a lot more time during the summer because there was no urgency around exact times to eat dinner.  Now that my daughter is in school I’m all about convenience and bold flavors, which can sometimes be difficult to do.  While most people think simple and delicious should be done in under 30 minutes, I lean more towards an hour or less except of course when it comes to braising things in…

Chicken Cassoulet Recipe with Chicken Sausage

There are few recipes I enjoy in this world more than Chicken Cassoulet.  It is everything that’s good and right in cuisine.  It’s incredibly comforting, hearty and meant to graze upon all day long, and the best part is that it’s actually incredibly easy to make.  The first cassoulet recipe I ever made didn’t actually even have chicken in it, it had duck which is a bit more traditional French.  Duck is one of my favorite things to eat, but I’m a little hesitant because I’m not sure the family would enjoy it quite as much as I would, so…

As I’ve been writing the last few weeks in some of my blog posts, we are on a mission to indulge in all things clean eating and that’s why I created this Summer Salad with Quinoa Recipe and Creamy Poppy Seed Dressing.  We aren’t perfect, nor are we striving for perfection, and we still appreciate a once a week cheat day.  We are still learning on what to cook and how to cook it, but one thing that is for certain, man do we feel better and our bodies seem happy with what we are putting in it.
