Hearty Slow Cooked Beef Stew
This simple beef stew recipe is easy to make and tastes delicious! It's wonderful when served over crusty French bread or mashed potatoes.
Very good and hearty. Combines Italian tortellini with Mexican seasonings. Top with tortilla chips and fresh cilantro.
Old-Fashioned Chicken and Noodles
This was a Sunday favorite when I was growing up. Sometimes my mother dipped the chicken in seasoned flour after boiling and fried it.
Spring Vegetable Soup
This vegetable soup is so good on a chilly spring night and even better with a grilled sandwich for lunch the next day. By the way, you can omit any veggies you chose, but don't use canned vegetables. I promise you it's just better this way.
Weeknight Wonton Soup
This is a very quick, semi-homemade wonton soup that can go from cutting board to table in less than 10 minutes! Serve with Chinese-style noodles for a complete meal.
Best Italian Sausage Soup
This is one of my favorite soups and it always gets rave reviews! Salad, hard rolls and wine make a meal! You can make this 24 hours ahead of time without the noodles and wait to add the spinach noodles until soup is reheated for serving. Yummy! Serve topped with grated Parmesan!
Slow Cooker Split Pea Soup with Bacon and Hash Browns
I use bacon instead of ham and frozen hash brown potatoes in this pea soup. It's a good winter comfort food and smells wonderful while cooking. It freezes well, so when my husband and I are busy all day, its a quick dinner for us. I add a sprinkle of red pepper flakes to spice it up a bit. You can also cook whole bacon strips in the microwave until lightly browned. Transfer to paper towels and let cool; crush or tear into small pieces.
Potato Cheese Soup with Velveeta®
A rich potato soup that also has carrot, onion and celery. The chicken base also contributes to its complex flavor. Chicken base is a strong reduction of chicken stock that is normally sold in a resealable plastic jar and should be kept refrigerated.
Oven Roasted Teriyaki Chicken
Chicken pieces are coated with a homemade teriyaki sauce and baked to perfection in the oven. Easy to double for a large group.
This is an answer to all the people who claim not having enough time to cook after a long day at work. This entire recipe, start to finish, takes about 30 minutes. It is the kind of dish you really want to savor on a chilly winter day.
