Chicken Bordeaux from the New York Times Cookbook

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!

Chicken, Chickpea & Orecchiette Pasta Soup

Hey, ya’ll, I hope you’ll forgive another soup recipe if it’s 80 degrees where you are, but seeing as we have tons of snow I’m still in full on comfort mode. But maybe no matter what the temp is where you are, you’ll want to try this Chicken, Chickpea & Orecchiette Pasta Soup. Can I say Hygge? I feel a little silly when I get all trendy and say things like Hygge, but look it up. This soup will be in the definition.

Brunswick Stew – Colonial Virginia Style

How do I know about Brunswick Stew? Back in the 70’s, we went on one of very few family vacations, probably to try to instill some sort of family bonding combined with a patriotic zeal to renew our faith in God and Country.

Classic Wild Rice Soup in the Instant Pot

So hey, here I am a Minnesota blogger and I have no Wild Rice Soup on my blog. Uff da. Well, I do have a Wild Rice and Smoked Turkey Chowder (amazingly good and healthy!) but it’s just not the same as a Classic Wild Rice Soup in the Instant Pot, now is it? (As a quick aside, I will be posting recipes that aren’t Instant Pot and aren’t soup, it’s just been a crazy Holiday week, so if you don’t have an “IP” please bear with me!)
