I have good news today. See, some of you know I’ve been having some trouble with my joints; typing, while still slow and has to be done just a little at a time is easier and I’m trying to use the voice options on my computer. And cooking has been challenging, but I’m really trying to focus on fun & easy (and lightweight) food. And the best news? I made Old English Potted Cheese and it’s a super easy cheese spread and just to die for.

Easiest Supreme Sauce

Easiest Supreme Sauce

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.

Classic Wild Rice Soup in the Instant Pot

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!)
