Colorado Pork Green Chili

Colorado Pork Green Chili

One of my favorite things in the whole world is Green Chili. But not just any ol’ green Chili. I’m talkin’ Green Chili like they make in Denver or pretty much all over Colorado, especially along the front range, and sometimes in Northern New Mexico and out across the prairie to Nebraska. In Colorado, it’s usually called Pork Green Chili, but on my site, I’m adding in Colorado to the name, Colorado Pork Green Chili.

Honey Glazed Cajun Spiced Ham

Honey Glazed Cajun Spiced Ham

Honey Glazed Cajun Spiced Ham is one of my fave Holiday hams, no matter the Holiday. It couldn’t be better during the fall/winter months for Thanksgiving or Christmas and it brightens up a harsh, cold Easter like we’re having this year. (Even though it’s on a Christmas platter, lol!)

Lemony Chicken with Green Beans

Lemony Chicken with Green Beans

Lemony Chicken with Green Beans - simple enough for every day; elegant enough for company! There are potatoes, too, making it a complete meal. Try it with artichokes in the spring!

A gorgeous dish, it really should have a fancy name…a little wine, lemon and a handful of sun-dried tomatoes spark up gorgeous green beans, chicken and a few potatoes. Fingerling potatoes or Yukons are perfect but a red potato makes a great budget stand in. And everything is napped with that bright sauce. Shhh…don’t tell anyone how simple this dish is and they’ll think you’re a genius.

Snowy Chocolate Truffles

 A simple but delish rustic chocolate truffle rolled in powdered sugar

I just love a simple, rolled truffle, don’t you? Well, I won’t turn down one with a gorgeous chocolate coating, but for making, you can’t beat these, tossed in confectioner’s sugar or cocoa, and besides, we all know the center is the best part anyway, right?
