Friday Favorites

Today, I'm going to share one of my favorite recipes!  This is real winner at our house and we often serve it to guests.

Chicken Enchilada Soup adapted from a  cooks.com recipe

1 dozen corn tortillas
1 onion, chopped
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoon oil plus more for frying
14 1/2 ounce beef broth (we use water with bouillon)
10 ounce chicken broth (ditto with the bouillon)
1 can cream of chicken soup (undiluted)
1 pound baked chicken seasoned with fuego (mixture of spices, I'll have to find the recipe and add later, we make a big batch and use it for fajitas and this soup and any thing else that needs some tasty spicy goodness)
1 1/2 cup water
2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon chile powder (not the spice mixture, but ground chile peppers)
1/8 teaspoon ground pepper
2 cups Cheddar cheese, grated

Cut all tortillas into 1/2 inch strips and set aside half. Fry remaining half of tortillas in hot oil until crisp. Feel free to salt and then hide. If not, they will all be eaten before the soup is ready.

Saute onion and garlic in 2 tablespoons oil in Dutch oven (any heavy pot will do). Add next 10 ingredients, bring to boil. cover, reduce heat and simmer for one hour. Bring back to almost boil, add unfried tortilla strips and cheese. Simmer uncovered for 10 minutes. Serve with fried tortilla strips.

Makes about 8 cups

Stories from the Kitchen: Taste and See

I celebrated my birthday last weekend. It was wonderful and the leftovers left me with a question or two. Find out what they are and how I'm currently answering them in this week's podcast. Stories from the Kitchen Season 2, Episode 2: Taste and See Notes from the episode: Taste and See by Margaret Feinberg Dad’s New York Cheesecake (from the back of a Philidelphia Cream Cheese package) 1 ⅞ cups graham cracker crumbs ¼ to ½ cup butter, melted 1 cup sugar, divided 2 lbs cream cheese (4 packs) 2 large eggs (lightly beaten) 1 tsp vanilla 2 tbsp cornstarch 1 cup sour cream Preheat oven to 450F Mix well graham crackers, 2 tbsp sugar, and enough butter that the mixture holds together.

Sweet Caroline by Kelda Poynot

  First off, my copy of Sweet Caroline  (aff link) is not a gifted review book, I spent my well earned Amazon No-Rush Rewards money on this book. Second of all, this is not my standard close door kind of romance. Third of all, this is a really fun read. Caroline is a hard working young lady that is doing all that she can to make ends meet and to get her graduate degree. Part of that work is renting out the room above her garage. When she answers the phone of an unknown number, believing it's a future tenant, she has no idea how much her life is about to change.  The young man on the other end of that call, Hashim, is tall, dark, and mysterious in all the right ways. The story quickly moves from the girl next door falling for a stranger to a fight for their lives. And in true real life fashion, those fights aren't just with external enemies but the ones we carry within.  It's an entertaining story of Caroline and Hashim, discovering their love for each other and fighting to

Project 52: Good Friday is low key

We had a wonderful Holy week, full of celebrations, one of my favorites was the Good Friday celebration.  But it was emotionally and physically draining.  By the time that evening rolled around, we weren't up for much of anything.  We ended up having a game night on our bed with crackers, cheese and salami.  It was fun, we played cribbage, and In a Pickle (which we determined is not for two people with little to no brain power).  I'm looking forward to this Friday because Joel is off the entire week, which should mean more energy and maybe something creative!
