Oh my gosh is your kitchen looking like mine as the days count down to Christmas? Bags of chocolate chips, flour everywhere, rolling pins and candies and sugar, oh my! And here it is December 20th & I am starting to realize that I just might not accomplish everything I’ve been hoping to before the big day. Mostly because I keep adding things, lol! But I want to back away from the baking (that should be a Meme, shouldn’t it?) and share out this perfect little accompaniment to just about any holiday meal, Spicy Jalapeno Cranberry Sauce.
It’s been a long time since I’ve made a roast. I mean a real roast, in the oven. I did do a 30 Minute Instant Pot Roast, which was fun, but that was way back in January. So when I saw roast on sale this last week I decided it was about time to try another. Now Prime Rib isn’t in my budget, and truthfully, neither is a Standing Rib Roast but here’s my go-to method to take a cheap, grocery store roast and make it taste better, kind of a Poor Man’s Mock Prime Rib. This is a super easy recipe, but it’s a bit different and I’ve taken you through each step; don’t be worried about the length of the post!
It wasn’t until I made my Chicken Cordon Bleu Sliders the other day that I remembered how much I really do love the flavors of Chicken Cordon Bleu. And one of the things I love about Chicken Cordon Bleu is the sauce that’s traditionally served with it. It’s known as a Supreme Sauce, and it’s rich chickeny creamy deliciousness. I promised I’d post a recipe for you to go with those sliders, so here’s the Easiest Supreme Sauce.
There’s nothing like a little Mexican food when you’re just absolutely over Christmas & Christmas leftovers & New Years and New Years leftovers. And then there were the leftovers from the leftovers. So change it up and make enchiladas!
One of my summer/fall favorites is this marvelous Sour Cherry Compote. It’s a little sweet, a little tart and goes so well with so many things. I often make up a batch and can or freeze so I have it to pull out in the winter, too.
