Mexican Vegetarian Rice Bake

Casseroles are a great way to make being a vegetarian more flavorful and interesting. Granted, I’m not a vegetarian.  However, we try to eat vegetarian or vegan for most of our dinners at home, doing about four or five a week without any meat.  What I like about casseroles is that they create flavor meals that feel more like meals and less like a side dish.  Plus baking something is [&hellip

Chicken Curry with Sweet Potato and Chickpeas

I haven’t been writing much lately because I have been busy with a new job I started almost three weeks ago. The new job is a bit longer of a commute which led me to look for some slow cooker (crockpot) recipes since I get home a little later than I used to and well I’m still the personal home chef. One find, I already had on my Pinterest board [&hellip

Bean Succotash

  One of my favorite food shows of recent is PBS’ The Mind of a Chef.  Season Two is now on Netflix and I am working my way through the season which features Southern Chef Sean Brock. It’s been a great second season especially after an amazing Season One staring David Chang. The first episode shows Brock and another chef making a variation on succotash that uses boiled peanuts and ends with [&hellip

Grilled Prosciutto Wrapped Chicken Breasts for #SundaySupper

  Summertime grilling is one of my favorite times of the season.  When we used to live in Michigan, it felt extra special after long periods of bad weather.  Though I was one of the crazy people who would clear a path in the snow to the grill, dust off the layer of snow and fire it up in 20-degree evenings. Now that we are in the land of no [&hellip

#SundaySupper Spooky Kid Pizzas

So when I originally imagined doing some Halloween inspired pizzas for our twin boys Oscar & Theo I was thinking something a bit more spooky than a pumpkin.  Of course, the spooky factor kind of suffered since my “spider legs” were to be built form slices of green peppers. Sadly I failed to double-check we still had a bell pepper in the fridge.  We did not when it came time [&hellip

Cajun Turkey Pot Pie

Pie + Meat = Winning. Adding some Cajun spices to a turkey pot pie definitely caught my attention when searching for things to make this week.  This recipe is quite simple, so simple I finally overcame my fear of making homemade pie crust. The filling requires cooked Turkey. I prepared the turkey using this recipe: Roast Turkey Breast. It takes about 45 minutes to cook.  It’s best to do this [&hellip

Chickpea Biryani

I love Biryani. Usually I’ll order it with chicken, but it makes a decent vegetarian option for a Meatless Monday.   This simple recipe is worth trying. My only change is use 1 serrano pepper instead of two.  We found the two peppers too spicy.  Adjust to your preference. Full Recipe: Chickpea Biryani

Indian Butter Chicken

For all the hate directed at Netflix last year, I still love them.  The fact that I can stream so many shows and movies is great and it’s still at an affordable price provided you use the service.  I do. I was watching some old Gordon Ramsey shows with one episode that featured him traveling through India seeking out authentic Indian food.  Since I lack his production budget and time, [&hellip

Chicken with Sauteed Leeks, Apples and Sun-Dried Tomatoes

I finally did some catching up on my Pinterest to-do list.  This recipe I found on the site a couple weeks ago. It’s quite simple and only takes about 20 minutes with prep and time cooking.  The addition of a light white wine and lemon sauce really brings everything to life. The meal tastes like fall. With Dallas weather similar to Michigan fall weather, it feels like a cool day [&hellip

Sausage, Chickpea Smoked Paprika Soup

I confess. I’ve been on a bit of a meat kick lately.  Take for instance last night when I had a perfectly good sounding vegan soup I planned to make.  Looking at the recipe on the Farmersgirl Kitchen blog, the recipe screamed for some italian crumbled sausage. If you wish to make this recipe as a vegan meal, please visit the Chickpea Smoked Paprika Soup recipe here. For the more carnivores [&hellip
