A breakfast burrito that really deserves the name. Filled with chorizo, peppers, spices and cheese, you'll have all the energy you need for a big day of chores, exercise, or fiddling around in your workshop with the ballgame on.
This easy casserole is full of the food groups you need to start the day: Your meat group, your potatoes group, and your cheese group.
This is a recipe I created with my Lithuanian roommate back home in Dublin. We took a bog-standard Leek and potato soup recipe, and turned it into something special with the addition of Vodka. To turn this into a main course soup, add 2 cups of cooked chicken meat at the same stage as the vodka and stir gently. The alcohol cooks well out, but the vodka gives this dish an interesting sweetness.
Tender steak and asparagus morsels simmered in a velvety gravy with sour cream, and then draped over baked potatoes. This is a perfect main dish for either curling up on the couch on a cold night (only one hand required to eat!) or company dining, served atop a lettuce leaf with steamed broccoli, crusty sourdough bread and a light salad. My daughter and I think it's a classic tummy-warmer.
I usually cook off the cuff, and don't measure or write down what I put in various dishes. The first time I tried this, my wife and kids told me I needed to make it again. So the second time, I doled out the amount of the ingredients onto a plate, and then measured. It's still not the SAME as the first time, but they all loved it.
Balsamic vinegar is a great flavor booster in this dish, along with red potatoes,asparagus,and onion.
This tangy, Southwestern-inspired chicken dish is simmered until all the vegetables are tender, then enhanced with spicy cheese.
This Potato Soup is creamy, rich and flavorful. Especially good on cold winter days. I came up with this recipe when looking for a fast way to make a good creamy potato soup in a hurry. It is rich in celery flavor. I took it to a Marine Corps League supper and it just disappeared. I was asked for the recipe by several people.
The creamiest mashed potatoes ever. So easy and you can easily make them as creamy as you desire!
Very rich can almost be a dessert but its not.
This recipe is a great fall soup made with a mild curry powder and sweet potatoes.
My kids demand I make this every holiday which I gladly oblige. They don't know they are eating vegetables!
My mother-in-law (rest her soul) made this creamy vegetarian potato chowder. This recipe is adapted from hers and is great for when things are moving or you are on the go! Good old comfort food.
My late mother-in-law left a wonderful collection of recipes that she kept in a loose-leaf notebook, some clipped and pasted, some written in by hand. This one quickly became one of our favorites. It's quick, easy and delicious.
This is one of the easiest and fastest ways to prepair a sweet potato and can be served sweet as well as savory.
Perfect side for the grill, these potatoes are simple but delicious.
A hearty split-pea soup with ham, bacon, and potatoes.
Nothing fancy here, just a simple, great comfort food for a long Canadian winter. I used to come inside to this piping hot soup after a day on the outdoor rink.
A soup for all seasons, this is a thick and hearty vegetable soup,made thick from the addition of ziti pasta. I don't add any salt because I leave that addition to each individual palate. It is painless to make and just requires some simmer time to become a delicious anytime soup. Serve with Texas toast garlic bread.
A thick and hearty pea soup that sticks to your ribs.
