Chicken and Dumplings in the Instant Pot

Monday, November 18, 2019 Food

                                         Chicken and Dumplings in the Instant Pot

Nothing like Rich, creamy, chicken and dumplings that are made easy in the Instant Pot.

Have you ever thought about if you can make old-fashioned, chicken and dumplings in a Instant Pot or pressure cooker? The answer is a yes!

Whisk up an easy dumpling batter, add your vegetables, chicken, and broth to the pot, and you’re on your way to a rib-sticking dinner.

The Trick to Chicken and Dumplings in the Instant Pot is:

Pressure cooking chicken and dumplings can a bit of a challenge because thickened liquids either don’t come up to pressure at all, or they do, and you end up with scorching on the bottom of the pot.

To address the issue, I didn’t add flour directly to the broth in this recipe...

HUBBY’S HEARTY TURKEY SAUSAGE SOUP

Monday, March 18, 2019 Food  No comments

This soup my beautiful wife came up with after we always ordered a similar soup from a restaurant. At first she made it just like the original recipe or what she thought it could be. Through many changes this recipe is the best one to date. In order to share this we had to measure out the ingredients because she doesn’t cook by measurements. So you can add or subtract ingredients to your desires. Once you make it you can change it to make it the way you like it. She has made it with potatoes instead of beans, Chicken broth instead of Beef.  It really is just a basic recipe that can be changed in accordance to your own personal preferences. So break out the dutch oven and get started !  

She calls this recipe the Hubby’s Hearty Turkey Sausage soup...

Hearty Vegetable and Chicken Stew

Monday, December 24, 2018 Food

1 Preheat the oven to 425°F.

2 Roast the veggies: Spread chopped mushrooms, carrots, and potatoes on a baking sheet in three separate rows, keeping each vegetable separate from the others—this will come in handy later when you have to add them to the soup in separate steps.

Drizzle 3 tablespoons of olive oil over the vegetables, then sprinkle with 3/4 teaspoon of salt, 3/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper, and 1/2 teaspoon harissa. Toss each individual row to coat.

Roast veggies in oven for 20 to 25 minutes. When they are fork tender, set them aside while you finish the soup base. ( You don’t actually want the vegitables to brown too much for this recipe; you want the colors to stay vibrant.)

While the vegetables roast, cook the chicken and begin assembling the stew.

Oat flour and rolled oats add a nutty flavor to these gluten-free chocolate chip cookies! Bittersweet chocolate adds some chocolatey depth. Keep these around for your friends and family who can’t have gluten.

That’s why I decided on this gluten-free recipe for the gluten-free chocolate chip cookie lovers in your life.

Allow the nuts to cool.

Delicious Rotisserie Chicken Stroganoff

Wednesday, September 26, 2018 Food

Give classic stroganoff a twist with some shredded rotisserie chicken! This whole dinner comes together in a jiffy, making it a new staple for busy weeknights.

The rotisserie chicken should be in your arsenal if you are a busy person—and who isn’t? But the whole roasted chicken doesn’t always have to be the main event. I like to use rotisserie chickens more as an ingredient to make other meals—like this easy chicken stroganoff!

CLASSIC BEEF STROGANOFF . . . BUT WITH CHICKEN

Normally, a stroganoff is made with thin cuts of beef, but to do that right requires some extra prep, and I thought it would be fun to try the classic stroganoff flavors—mushrooms, sour cream, etc.—with chicken.

Using a shredded meat from a rotisserie chicken for the sauce is easy, and the finished sauce...

If you like Thin and Crispy Chocolate Chip Cookies Look no Further

Sunday, September 23, 2018 Food

These thin and crispy chocolate chip cookies taste just like Tate’s Bakeshop Cookies from the bright green bag! It’s all about baking your cookies low and slow.

Are you familiar with Tate’s Bakeshop Cookies? You know, the unassuming-looking chocolate chip cookies packaged in a green roll-top bag that you can find at the grocery store?

If you have, then you probably know that they are crazy delicious.

Why Crispy Chocolate Chip Cookies are the Best

Usually, I prefer the classic chewy-gooey-in-the-middle and crisp-around-the-edges kind of chocolate chip cookie, but these crispy chocolate chip cookies are an exception.

These cookies are thin around the edges and crispy all the way through. They have a deeply burnished taste, almost like buttery toffee.

Apple Pie recipe

Friday, September 21, 2018 Food

1 Make the pie crust: To make a homemade crust, in a large bowl whisk together 2 1/2 cups of flour, 1 teaspoon of salt, and 2 teaspoons of sugar.

Add the cubed butter and use your clean dry hands to toss to coat with the flour. Using your hands work the butter into the flour, pressing the cubes of butter between your thumb and fingers. Continue to work the flour until the mixture is shaggy and the largest pieces of butter are no larger than a kernel of corn.

Make a well in the center and add the sour cream to it. Use a fork to work the buttered flour and the sour cream into each other until the dough begins to clump.

Separate the dough mixture into 2 equal sized piles and work each one first into a ball, and then into a disk. Sprinkle with flour and wrap with plastic wrap...
