Chicken Pot Pie - top with biscuit, pie crust, potatoes or puff pastry

Chicken Pot Pie like you WISH your Grandma made!

not to "dis" grandma, but this is outstanding!!

I originally posted this Chicken Pot Pie in November of 2011, one of my very first posts! Today, as I made it again, I updated with new photos. That night, I had been looking at Time’s Money Issue and became sidetracked. Pretty soon, I was clicking on one link after another; you know how that goes, right?

Wild Rice Chicken Salad

Can a girl have too many chicken salad recipes? According to my recipe box, probably not! Especially when one of them transitions out of the dog days of summer into crisp, cool fall as well as this one does. After all, nothing says fall to us Northerners quite like wild rice!

Chilaquiles in Tomatillo Sauce with Shredded Chicken

Many of my friends aren’t familiar with Chilaquiles, which is a bit of a shame. Frankly, they sound a bit odd: Old tortillas broken into pieces, fried and then simmered in a sauce? One bite is all it will take to realize how wrong an assumption can be. The tortillas take on a life of their own in this Chilaquiles Verde; they not only thicken the bright, tangy tomatillo sauce but achieve a gorgeous texture, slightly softened with just a bit of chew; cooked right they’re simply sublime.

Hot Broiled Sandwiches

I love using leftover ham or turkey for sandwiches, but not just any old sandwich!  Here’s our favorite, and these sandwiches may very well be better than the ham itself. Hot, bubbly and delicious on crunchy, toasted bread with all our favorite things inside…
