It is a concoction of sour cream, mayonnaise, bacon bits, green onions, and cheddar cheese which is served with salty potato chips.   Overall the dip is pretty tasty and I have made something […]

Zinfandel Braised Chicken Thighs with Mushrooms and Polenta

I have discovered, over the last year, the delightful bliss that is polenta.  I have also discovered that I am passionately in love with chicken thighs.  So, when I was craving something rich, creamy, and comforting the other night I decided to take my two new comfort […]

'Big Evil' Cheeseburger

I have fond memories of fast food from childhood. I did not get fast food all that often (thanks mom for always cooking for us!!) so I remember it being a special treat, or something we had when we were short on time.  When I was very small I would get kids meals, the happy […]

Egg Salad

If you are anything like me, you have a few left-over eggs from Easter. When I was growing up we never had egg salad.  Maybe it was because my parents did not care for it, or maybe they never thought of it, but we never had it.  Once I struck out on my own I […]

Cream of Chicken Soup

I always forget how easy soups are to make.     One of my favorite soups is cream of chicken.  For the longest time I would buy the soup from the deli of the grocery store because I quite simply never thought to make it myself.  I am kicking myself about it now because not only […]

Chicken Enchiladas with Chipotle Sour Cream Sauce

I’ve never liked chicken enchiladas very much in Tex-Mex restaurants. The filling is mushy, the sauce is bland, and they can be a bit on the soggy side.  So, when I was thinking of recipes I could make for dinner a few nights back I wondered if I could make a chicken enchilada that I […]

Pan Seared Chicken with Creamy Polenta and Bacon

I love one pot dishes.    Anything I can do to save washing up dishes after dinner is always welcome.  Aside from making the washing up easier, building the dish in one pan gives you a unique opportunity to develop some pretty robust flavors.  You never lose any fond, the caramelized bits that get stuck […]
