Chicken and Dumplings

Chicken and Dumplings

Chicken and Dumplings What is more delicious for a fall dinner than Chicken and Dumplings?  The weather has gotten really cool here in Alabama.  Since it is one of my daughter's favorites meals, I decided today would be a perfect day to make it.  The trick to making good dumplings is to not overwork the dough.  These are drop style but you could flour a work surface and roll them and cut them out. Every time I make dumplings, I think of my sweet...

Instant Pot Spicy Chipotle Chuck Roast

Chipotle in Adobo Spicy Chuck Roast

Instant Pot Spicy Chipotle Chuck Roast is a quick and easy meal that can be prepped in your instant pot and kept warm for up to 12 hours.  You could also just place all ingredients in a slow cooker and cook on low 6 hours.  I love the flavor of chipotles in adobo sauce but if you are not a fan, you cut substitute a can of tomatoes with green chilies (Rotel) and use half a can of water. Serve...

Tropical Pudding

Tropical Pudding

Tropical Pudding What started out as my Homemade Banana Pudding, turned into something so delicious that I may never make Banana Pudding again!  This Tropical Pudding was so delicious, that I could hardly keep myself from devouring it all!  Since I had bought organic bananas at Aldi the other day, that still had not ripened much more than they were when I bought them, I had to change direction on dessert.  My daughter and I were both wanting something sweet so I...

Electric Pressure Cooker Fenugreek Chicken and Rice

Electric Pressure Cooker Fenugreek Chicken and Rice

Electric Pressure Cooker Fenugreek Chicken and Rice My good friend Esat had requested that I post some recipes with Fenugreek so I came up with this recipe for Electric Pressure Cooker Fenugreek Chicken and Rice.  If you look at the recipe, also notice that I put a note for stovetop cooking of the recipe.  He probably wanted some recipes using fresh Fenugreek but unfortunately, it is not available where I live.  Since I could not find it in any local grocery...

Electric Pressure Cooker Boston Butt

Electric Pressure Cooker Boston Butt

Electric Pressure Cooker Boston Butt I know, I know, I use my Electric Pressure Cooker for everything.  When I came up with my recipe for Electric Pressure Cooker Boston Butt it was an invention of necessity.  I started out making my Smoked and Slow Cooked Boston Butt Pulled Pork Sandwiches for a get-together at my cousin's house.  I had bought a Boston Butt yesterday spiced it up good and put it on the grill last night for several hours to get...

Electric Pressure Cooker Stuffed Zucchini

Plate of Electric Pressure Cooker Stuffed Zucchini

Electric Pressure Cooker Stuffed Zucchini If you liked my Kabak Dolmasi Stuffed Zucchini recipe, you are going to love my Electric Pressure Cooker Stuffed Zucchini recipe.  Of course, the original recipe is great but this one is even better because you can prep it and forget it.   Since I was using the electric pressure cooker pan, I used a potato to wedge the stuffed zucchini in place.  While potato is not traditionally part of this dish, it sure made...

Homemade Banana Pudding

Homemade Banana Pudding

  Homemade Banana Pudding One of my daughter's favorite desserts is my Homemade Banana Pudding.  Since I got such a great deal at Aldi the other day on organic bananas - 59 cents for 2 pounds, I decided to go ahead and get everything I needed to make it while I was there.  When my daughter saw the bananas, heavy cream, and Vanilla Wafers, she said, "Oh Mom, are you making what I think you are?"  Unfortunately, I was a...

Creamy Feta Herb Spread

Creamy Feta Herb Spread

Creamy Feta Herb Spread Before we talk about my Creamy Feta Herb Spread recipe, I need to tell you a story that is funny today but not so much yesterday.  I made this yummy spread and decided to take it outside on my back porch for photographs and then snacking.  I needed to call my friend Ange, you should remember her from the Decadent Chocolate Cake post.   Well, her mom answered the phone so I was talking to her...

Easy Manti

Easy Manti If you have ever made my Homemade Kayserili Manti recipe, you know it takes a long time and lots of hands to make.  Honestly, it is worth every minute it takes to make and the time spent with family making Manti, is priceless.  However, there are times when you really want Manti but are short on time or help or both.  That is why I came up with this recipe for Easy Manti.  Ordinarily, I would never use ready-made...

Köfte Sliders

Köfte Sliders

Köfte Sliders Since my Homemade Burger Bun recipe turned out so great, I thought I would bake some of the dough into slider buns to change-up my Köfte routine.  Normally, I just grill my Köfte and they are great like that with a little salad. These Köfte Sliders are so tasty and if you have small kids, they will love them.  They are the perfect size for little hands.  Try them out and let me know what you think.  Afiyet olsun!...

Southern Style Potato Salad

Southern Style Potato Salad

Southern Style Potato Salad One of my favorite things about this time of year is that the weather is great for cooking on the grill or picnicking.  As much as I love cooking, sometimes I don't want to spend a lot of time in the kitchen.  When the weather is nice, it makes you want to enjoy the outdoors.  So this recipe for Southern Style Potato Salad will make sure you get to enjoy nature on a full belly.  It...

Easy as Pie Apple Tart

Easy as Pie Apple Tart

Easy as Pie Apple Tart Since I had a half pound sheet of dough left from making my Gruyère Asparagus Tart, I decided to make my Easy as Pie Apple Tart.  The hardest thing about making this dessert is cutting the apples into super thin slices. Oh, and to stop eating it.  That is the really hard part. Looks Like You Were in the Kitchen All Day What I love most about this tart is that it looks so beautiful, your family...
