Chicken Soup with Orzo
Chicken Soup with Orzo
If you’re like me, you keep your eye out for crock-pot recipes that can be thrown together in a hurry. There are plenty that I’d like to try, but my busy schedule doesn’t always allow me to do a lot of preparation. I’m often tossing ingredients into a crock pot before bedtime to cook the next day or I’m hurriedly throwing things together before I walk out the door in the morning. For me, browning meat is an additional step that takes time and effort. It’s much easier for me to prepare recipes that are simply “load and go,” no precooking necessary.
  • As easy as pie — thanks for these desserts
    With Thanksgiving only 2-1/2 weeks away, it’s time to begin thinking about your Thanksgiving menu and the course everyone remembers — dessert. Not everyone has the skills or the time to make a homemade pie, but with just a few easy steps you can make a pie that tastes like it took you all day to prepare. 
  • Slow cooker makes lasagna easy
    If you think making lasagna is time-consuming and complicated, think again. By using your slow cooker you can throw together dinner in a hurry without any fuss. Sit down to enjoy a movie, run some errands or even take a nap. No need to watch the oven or worry about dried out lasagna. In a few hours perfectly cooked lasagna is ready and waiting to be served. 
  • Recipe tricks for some ghoulishly good treats

    Scare up some hauntingly good treats this Halloween. Adults can have just as much fun as kids conjuring up something sweet.

     
  • Savory history: Texas brand added to Mexican dishes
    As Mexican flavors have grown in popularity, you may have wondered what makes Tex-Mex different from Mexican food. According to cookbook author Linda Larsen, Tex-Mex cuisine is a collection of recipes and foods native to Mexico that were updated with the foods and customs of the state of Texas. In the 20th century, as the culture grew, elements from Spain and the United States created the oldest regional cuisine in America. 
  • Pork chops and apples:  A winning combination
    It certainly feels like fall as orange leaves fall softly from our trees and pile up in our yard and our weekends have included getting lost in corn mazes, taking wagon rides and climbing on hay bales at local pumpkin patches. 
  • Great for busy cooks: Crock-pot recipes
    If you’re like me, you keep your eye out for crock-pot recipes that can be thrown together in a hurry. There are plenty that I’d like to try, but my busy schedule doesn’t always allow me to do a lot of preparation. I’m often tossing ingredients into a crock pot before bedtime to cook the next day or I’m hurriedly throwing things together before I walk out the door in the morning. For me, browning meat is an additional step that takes time and effort. It’s much easier for me to prepare recipes that are simply “load and go,” no precooking necessary. 
  • A world of adventure: Recipes that span the globe
    Life in the same spot can be comforting, but maybe not as adventurous as you’d like. If you’re in the midst of saving for your dream vacation, go ahead and let your taste buds do the traveling for you. They may just lead you to your next destination. 
  • Fall favorites: Pumpkin spice and caramel apples
    Cooler mornings and evenings mean grabbing a sweater or jacket on the way out the door. It also means our tastes change. My two favorite flavors of fall include pumpkin spice and caramel apples. If I could, I would drink a warm pumpkin spice latte each morning of autumn. 
  • Soda-pop dishes: So delicious
    There’s nothing easier than opening up your fridge, pulling out a can of soda pop and popping open the tab as you’re preparing your favorite dishes. Add some unexpected flavor, a little fizz and maybe even a little color to your dishes in the near future. 
  • Pop adds fun, punches up recipes
    Turn up the fun factor on your cooking and baking. Add a can of your favorite soda pop and see what happens. 
  • Turn last of summer’s tomatoes into Caprese treat
    When I think of summer, I think of red, ripe tomatoes. What better way to showcase juicy tomatoes than Caprese salad? 
  • Sweet and salty - oh, what a delicious pair
    If you want to tantalize your taste buds, pair up something sweet and salty for a delightful dessert. Chewy caramel and crunchy pretzels are a unique, mouthwatering combination.

    Those with a sweet tooth understand the need for treats, and if you add just a touch of salt, your sweets will be even sweeter. 
  • Casseroles: Brimming with comfort, easy to prepare
    What says comfort food like a casserole? There's nothing homier than sitting down for dinner and sharing a hot dish with your family. 
  • History a mystery, but savor the barbecue sauce
    The exact origin of barbecue sauce is unknown. However, historians have a few leads. Prehistoric chefs found they could add flavor to meat and help preserve it by basting it with wine and vinegar seasoned with salt and seeds. 
  • Roll-ups: A delicious break from traditional lasagna
    Take a break from traditional lasagna and try lasagna roll-ups instead. They are fun to make, simple to prepare and you won't be stuck with a whole pan of lasagna.
