As I may have mentioned before, we are big fans of buffalo sauce, so I knew I had to try out buffalo chicken soup. I don’t know why but it seems like I’ve attempted a few too many soup recipes that take an hour or more to make and they just turn out kind of flavorless and disappointing. Maybe I have high expectations for anything that takes that long? Well, this soup is done in 45 minutes or less and it’s very flavorful.
This mug cake was inspired by a pinner’s suggestion to put jam in my lemon mug cake. The lemon cake with berries sounded really lovely, and then it dawned on me – raspberry and sour cream mug cake! The combination might sound strange but I promise you it is so good. Something about the tart berries and the sour cream just go together so well, and the added sugar makes it just sweet enough. I liked this so much I made it two days in a row.
Mornings are not my favorite time of day. I envy morning people; I’d love to just be able to spring out of bed, eager to greet the new day. My body won’t allow that. I’m usually pretty much in a groggy cloud for the first half hour of consciousness. That is why I really love this idea of breakfast cookies. It’s a cookie, it tastes good, it’s good for you, and (!) you can just wake up and eat it – no preparation required.
Before I decided to expand my cooking horizons, I made a lot of hamburger helper. This dish is similar to hamburger helper in that it has noodles and meat, but it tastes a lot better – and it might be even easier to make.
Halibut is a nice mild fish; this recipe takes advantage of that. This subtle combination of flavors compliments the halibut well. You don’t need a lot of spice or brightness to cover up any fishy taste. Not only that but it’s super easy to make, just heat up a butter sauce in the microwave and poor it over your fillets then stick it in the oven for ten minutes and you’re done!
