This recipe for Creamy Brussels Sprouts Soup is an entry into the PAISLEY FARM HOLIDAY BLOGGER RECIPE CHALLENGE recipe contest. PAISLEY FARM sent me free products to use in the creation of the recipe but the recipe, narrative and photos are my own.
It’s hard not to get excited for mail delivery this time of year. Christmas cards, packages you forgot you ordered from Amazon (oops!) and 7 jars of goodies from Paisley Farm to my doorstep.
Okay, maybe you didn’t get that package, but I did because I was invited to participate in the Paisley Farm Holiday Blogger Recipe Challenge. I accepted and my entry is this Brussels Sprouts Soup Recipe.
Crispy Baked Buffalo Wings marinated in a simple, spicy buttermilk-ranch marinade and are “oven fried” until crispy and bursting with flavor.
Thanksgiving is over and maybe you still have some mashed potatoes in the back of the fridge but it’s time we moved on to food worthy of a football game.
You don’t have to understand a thing about football to know everyone up’s their game when it comes to finger food to enjoy while watching the game.
So for today let’s ignore the Christmas music blaring inside every store, make these crispy, spicy wings, turn on the football game and tune out the holiday madness.
Lasagna Soup Recipe with Mushrooms made in the slow cooker or on the stop in just 30 minutes. Fresh sliced mushrooms and spinach in a rich, tomato broth with ground beef topped with mozzarella and ricotta.
Ah Thanksgiving ~ my favorite holiday probably because it’s the best eating gathering all year. By now it’s behind us but with just weeks before the next holiday, maybe you’re looking for a few simple weeknight recipes that everyone will enjoy (sans the picky toddlers).
This Lasagna Soup Recipe is as comforting as its layered counterpart, but as an added bonus you can make it in just 30 minutes on top of the stove or just add the ingredients to your slow cooker and let it do the heavy lifting.
Cheesy Chicken Pasta with Brussels Sprouts ~ tender pasta, bites of caramelized chicken and sliced brussels sprouts blanketed in a luxuriously creamy smoked gruyere-white cheddar cheese sauce.
Few foods are more comforting than pasta and gooey melted cheese sauce. This dish has both, plus bites of caramelized chicken and thinly sliced brussels sprouts and it’s all topped with toasted bread crumbs.
This is the sort of slow moving Sunday Supper that you whip up while wearing your favorite comfy pants but it’s so quick and easy to make you can enjoy it (comfy pants too) any night of the week.
Turkey Sweet Potato Chili ~ delicious ground (or leftover) turkey chili with bites of sweet potatoes, black beans, tomatoes, corn, bell pepper, onion and bold spices.
The level of intensity of a chili connoisseur when discussing chili preferences always amazes me. Beans, no beans. Meat ~ what kind? Do real men eat chili made with . . . ahem . . .turkey? And if they do, will their man card be automatically and immediately revoked?
There are, however a few guidelines most of us can agree upon. First, chili should pack heat. Serious heat and second, it should be thick, not wimpy; otherwise, it’s just soup.
From there the sky or (chili) pot is the limit. In my book, chili must have beans with the exception of the kind that blankets a hot dog. In that case, no beans.
So go forth, slice up some jalapenos, add a protein, some vegetables and yes, beans. I beg of you. Beyond that, live your best chili life designing or redesigning this recipe as you like.
Easy Chicken Lettuce Wraps ~ Asian seasoned ground chicken sautéed with mushrooms, green onions and water chestnuts, nestled in lettuce leaves and topped with a spicy hoisin sauce.
When I look back on old posts like this one, it reminds me of photos my kids come across of me that they find hilarious. “Those glasses ~ that hair!”.
The old photos from the original Easy Chicken Lettuce Wraps post were just as awkward and cringe-worthy.
But what I had forgotten about this recipe because I hadn’t made it in a while is . . . dang! ~ it’s sooo good! I do remember how my husband and I almost arm-wrestled over the last wrap. He ended up eating it, but I would have won. I totally would have won.
Cucumber Dill Salmon ~ pan seared salmon topped with a creamy cucumber-dill sauce. Simple, sophisticated taste in just 20 minutes.
Today I’m throwing back to a few years ago when I first published this recipe. I’ve updated the photos to show how drool-worthy this recipe is and added a video to show how easy it is to make this recipe in under 20 minutes.
There are just a few ingredients in this light, fresh salmon dish, but friends, mayonnaise isn’t one of them.
Homemade Enchilada Sauce ~ authentic, classic Mexican flavor with just 10 minutes hands on time.
I’ve made Enchiladas lots of times using canned sauce and eaten them even more times in restaurants. I’m pretty sure the deep, rich flavor of the restaurant sauce didn’t come from a can.
It wasn’t until we had a bumper crop of jalapenos (because how many poppers can you eat?!) that I decided to make my own. This recipe almost as simple as opening a can, but better. So much better and with the bold, authentic flavors you crave.
Beef Kabobs ~ steak and vegetable kabobs marinated in simple, everyday ingredients to lock in delicious, bold taste. Grill with bell peppers, onions and mushrooms for a complete meal on a stick.
It’s hard to believe we’re post 4th of July and Labor Day is fast approaching. Seems like only yesterday I flagged down the ice cream truck for a sweet treat. Wait ~ that was yesterday . . . and many other warm summer days.
Before we start buying Pumpkin Spice coffee creamer and indulging in pots of spicy chili while we root on the home football team, let’s fire up the grill again for these tender, juicy Beef Kabobs. Otherwise known as a meal on a stick.
