Daily Recipe Find – Baked Parmesan Broccoli Medallion Chips

I am always on the look out for recipes to use those last scraps of vegetables.  It usually ends up being soup, or stock because I haven’t found much interesting.  Well, when I found today’s recipe that changed for broccoli stems…   yes, broccoli stems.  I don’t like the stems, not sure if many people do.  This recipe uses thin cut broccoli stems for the chips.  I am truly intrigued by this one.. completely going to try these the next time I get a head of broccoli.  Enjoy!

Daily Recipe Find – Pot Pies

Oh the joy of leftovers, especially if it is turkey.
This recipe has been one of my favorites for a while now.
Through the year I make with chicken, although after Thanksgiving I of course make it with Turkey.

The recipe is for a large pot pie.  Although since I like more crust, and our family likes different vegetables I choose to make mini pot pies in a muffin tin for large muffins.
Cut the crust to fit on the bottom and up the sides of the muffin tins, fill up with the filling, just a little over the top.  Then I top it with a small piece of crust just large enough to cover the top.  I mash it a little on the sides, although don’t make a fully attached seam like I would a pie.  It can be done, but I always end up making the bottom to small to make a good edge.  Poke a hole in the middle of the top and bake at 350 degrees instead of 400 degrees.  Enjoy!

This would also be good as just a vegetable pie, using cream of mushroom soup, more mushrooms, some onions, peppers, whatever you have on had kind of a pie.  And, these also freeze well.

Daily Recipe Find – Thanksgiving – Pies

It is pie time..

I still use the same recipes as I did last year, with just a couple adjustments. First change is I bought pie crust instead of making them.  I do like my own crust, although trying to simplify a little this year.  Using the crock pots a little more for the casseroles and store bought crust for the pies.

The pecan pie has changed a little..  instead of using the half pecans I chopped them into small pieces.    I will post how it turns out after baking.

Daily Recipe Find – Thanksgiving – Casseroles

Thanksgiving is my ultimate cooking Holiday.  And why not, I love cooking, I love sharing my cooking and being thankful, spending time with family and friends.

Casseroles are generally easy cooking adventures, throw this and that in a dish, bake. Easy and tasty, and well, if cheese is involved…  even better in my opinion.

Daily Recipe Find – First Snow of the Season Means Chili and Cornbread

No matter how not ready I think I am for the first snow of the season, it still is a beautiful sight.


My tradition on our first snow is always a big pot of chili in the crock pot and a batch of cornbread.
I add smoked paprika and cheddar cheese to the cornbread.
The chili is topped with the crumbled cornbread, cheddar cheese, onions and my greek yogurt.
