Green Chile and Pork Stew

Thursday, September 8th, 2011

This spicy stew used up the leftover chile rubbed pork from last night. You could easily make this from scratch as well, just cut a pork tenderloin into bite sized chunks and toss it in the rub I made last night and brown up the pork pieces for a ...

Baked Chicken Noodles

Friday, July 8th, 2011

I took some leftover chicken noodle soup from lunch today, which I made with twice as many noodles so it was not very brothy, sprinkled the top with some breadcrumbs, and baked at 375 degrees F in an ovensafe bowl for about 30 minutes. It turned out quite good, ...

Crockpot Lamb Stew

Tuesday, March 15th, 2011

This month's Household 6 cooking challenge was a concept MRE, aka Meal Ready to Eat. These are shelf stable, calorie dense, nutritious meals that are used in the field by our men and women in uniform. They are not, however, known for being particularly tasty. Often the tiny bottles ...

Black Bean and Ham Soup

Wednesday, February 9th, 2011

Tonight I made my black bean and ham soup, using up most of the leftover ham from a couple nights ago. This time, instead of onion powder, I grated a small onion and sautéed it in a little canola oil. The fresh addition was nice, so I've rewritten ...

Another fall favorite, beef stew simmered all day in the slow cooker!

Smoked Salmon Chowder

Crema Funghi – Creamy Mushroom Soup

Wednesday, August 18th, 2010

This is an elegant and rich mushroom soup. The recipe is inspired by one from Carnival Creations, the cookbook based off of Carnival Cruise recipes. My folks picked up this book on our first cruise back in the day, and I made copies of a few of my ...

This is my take on the traditional Spanish cold soup. It's a great summer soup - a refreshing showcase for some of the great produce that's currently so abundant. Gazpacho Serves 8 as an appetizer or 4 as a meal 1 lb ripe tomatoes, chopped 1 medium cucumber; peeled, seeded, and chopped 1 small ...
