How To Make Green Chili? Beer. Braised. Butt.

It took a village to make this green chili. Almost literally. I believe no less than five people were involved in the making of this chili. Which was unnecessary, but decidedly more fun. Not surprisingly, cooking with friends is more fun that cooking alone. And cooking with friends who will help you make a roux […]

Liquid Diet Doesn’t Mean Bland Diet

057

People, I have graduated to soft foods. YEAH! Only certain ones, so still a pretty short list, but it’s exciting to have variety in my epicurean life once again. In the meantime—in those dark two weeks where meals could only be sucked through a straw—I got quite good at creating pureés and soups that were […]

Chicken Soup, Tokyo Style

117

After the last post about eggs, several of you emailed me to say that you too, A) love eggs, and B) would love to find other new ways to prepare them. So it’s just perfect timing that not only was I craving chicken noodle soup, but that the only noodles I had in the house […]

One Pot Meals: Chicken Corn Chili

One pot meals. Yeah! What? Where’s your enthusiasm? All right, so you could accuse me of being lazy. That’s fine. Point your bony finger in my direction. Sometimes saving time is a lifesaver. I’m a busy girl. A gal on the go. That shouldn’t be shocking to you. So. Here we are. With a gorgeous […]

Beans: The Glamour

077

Fideo con frijoles just makes me sound more worldly, eh? Translated it means pasta with beans, but fideo (and frijoles too for that matter) is a staple of Mexican and Spanish soups and stews. And nothing tastes better when baby it’s cold outside than a warm soup with a little kick to it! Fideo is […]

Chili To Feed The Masses (Or Just You!)

Mmm, chili. I know football season–classic chili time–is over, but screw the seasons. You should eat chili any time you want. Because it’s delicious. (Sorry, I’ve been watching a lot of Parks & Recreation lately so I may be channeling a little Ron Swanson there). So delicious in fact, that when the BF and I […]

Calorie Friendly Comfort Food

There’s something truly comforting about a bowl of soup and something even more comforting when that soup is covered with cheese. My mom has been making this easy French onion soup since I can remember. After my parents contentious divorce my dad would still get cravings for it–it’s that good. And while it’s neither complicated […]

Soup To Satisfy A Pho-natic!

So the BF got me a Flip video camera for Christmas and I’ve been experimenting with it [Read: Figuring out how it works]. Thus far I haven’t made a video that could be posted without editing (shockingly, not many meals can be cooked and filmed in under 5 minutes to fit the YouTube standard) and […]

Sausage + Bacon = Healthy Dish?

I know, you’re trying to figure out how it is possible that one could eat sausage and bacon in the same meal and not have a heart attack immediately? Oh my friends, you can absolutely have your (pork flavored?) cake and eat it too! This recipe was inspired by a meal I ate last winter […]

Smoky, Leeky, and of Course, Corny

I love leeks. But unlike their cousins, garlic and onions, I’m never quite sure what to do with leeks. But if I’m eating out and the menu item says “…blah blah leeks…” you bet I’m ordering it! So I decided to do a little experimentation by adding leeks to the corn chowder I was making. […]
