I was chatting with my friend Tonya on facebook book the other day. I asked if she’d made anything great in her Instant Pot and she gave me this recipe, Instant Pot Mexican Chipotle Chicken Soup. This soup saved my life! Thanks Tonya for sharing!
It’s easy to always think about St. Paul & Minneapolis, the Twin Cities, as a Swedish/Norwegian city and we do have a large population. Maybe our weather made them feel at home. But it’s just as easy to forget that our earliest settlements were French and/or French Canadian. So in honor of our French, here’s a “Bean Pot” or if ya want to be fancier, I’ll just call this a Minnesota Cassoulet Bean Pot.
Slow Cooker Zucchini Beef Soup has got to be the perfect end of summer soup, especially if you happen to have a garden still spitting out zucchini! Here in the Twin Cities, I’m still seeing a few on my neighbor’s plants. Me, I know better than to ever plant zucchini – the plants never stop and you’ll have zucchini out the ears, lol!
I don’t know who to “blame” for me whipping up this Southern Tomato Gravy the other day. Certainly not all my family that has migrated down to Georgia because I have never had Southern Tomato Gravy at their homes nor heard the words Tomato Gravy pass their lips. I knew it was going to be just the thing to go over the leftover Biscuits I made the other day, though.
I know it’s summer, mid-July, but I just had to do Barbecue Chicken Chili in the Instant Pot with some of the Honey Barbecue Pulled Pork I made the other day. No Instant Pot? No worries. The stovetop instructions for Barbecue Chicken Chili are here, too.
Every once in a while I crave Tomato Soup and this Simple Tomato Soup Instant Pot or Stovetop is a great one to whip up at the drop of a hat.
Here’s a new to me soup that you might like, too. Yucatan Pork Stew Instant Pot or Not. You might be familiar with Taco Soup or Sopa de Lima. They’re kind of relatives & share some of the same qualities as this Yucatan Pork Stew Instant Pot or Not.
Caldo de Res is usually a long-simmered beef Mexican soup made with shank, but today I wanted to show you a shortcut Caldo de Res you can get on the table quickly. And not to worry guys, I know I’ve been posting a lot of Mexican food! I’ll be mixing things up this week just in case you’re not the fan I am!
I have really fond memories of this recipe, Chicken Bordeaux from the New York Times Cookbook. At least Chicken Bordeaux was in a New York Times Cookbook in the early ’80’s. In Craig Claiborne’s day, I think. This harks back to when I was young, and if the pictures are correct, wearing a bikini!
How do I know about Brunswick Stew Virginia Style? Back in the ’70s, we went on one of the very few family vacations that didn’t include dogs (My Dad raised Goldens and showed extensively), probably to try to instill some sort of family bonding combined with patriotic zeal to renew our faith in Family, God, and Country.
Merry Christmas, everyone! Here it is, Christmas Eve Day, and I thought I’d show you one of my favorite Christmas Eve dinners, this time done in the Instant Pot. It’s Chili. The Best Instant Pot Chili, to be exact. I know, it’s strange to some people to have Chili as a Christmas Eve dinner.
If you’re looking for a simple dinner with flavor to die for, this is the one. Mexican Style Pot Roast. Perfect for a family, easy to make and a bounty of succulent, tender meat for dinner (and if there’s any left) some of the best leftovers, ever.
As many of you know I have been traveling to and fro the past couple of years, from my house to the folks. It ended being a lot more to than fro.
A while back, in a discussion with some friends about food that’s great to eat when you’d like to knock off a few pounds, someone mentioned Cabbage Soup – in a rather derogatory way. They were talking about The Original Fat Burning Cabbage Soup, a recipe that’s been around for ages and ages.
I think cooks must be divided into two camps when it comes to Lasagna. Those that toss it together with no problem (and yeah, I’m jealous of them) and those that think, “Yeah, it’s great, but it’s a production and the mess!” That’s me. Love Lasagne – hate making it. Raise your hand if you’re with me, here!
So often one thing leads to another, and so it was when I made Shrimp & Grits with a Cajun Gastrique not too long ago! My sister came to visit shortly after and while she missed the Shrimp and Grits, she proposed we make Grillades & Grits. It was a good call and we were off on yet another New Orleans inspired adventure!
There was a time when the most popular Chili used to be quite a bit different than the trendy varieties of today. A time when it was made with simpler ingredients and was served as a family meal, not a culinary adventure. A time when it was saucy enough to add a few crackers – and saucy enough that one HAD to use a spoon. I miss that chili.
This Simple Quick Italian Tomato Sauce has saved me more than once when the clock turned to five (or six) and I needed something on the table in a jiff that I knew everyone would want to eat!
