My family eats lunch out a lot on the weekends, but for dinner we mostly eat in. I'm often looking for new recipes. Trying new recipes is always a bit of a gamble. For me, I'd say a 50% success rate is pretty good. Success being that I found a recipe that I know that I'll want to make again.
I recently discovered this food blog: Cooking Classy. I've tried about 10 of her recipes over the last few months, and have well over a 50% success rate! Score! Her recipes are a little fancy but still very do-able in my opinion. That's perfect for me.
Since it is fall, and I love soups, I thought I would share two excellent soup recipes.
Chicken Pot Pie Soup
Brilliant! Like Jaclyn, I love chicken pot pie, but don't really love pie crust. It never would have occurred to me to find another way to make it. I LOVE it as a soup with biscuits. And I learned how easy it is to make biscuits from scratch! This recipe made a big pot of soup, so I froze about half of it. Unfortunately, the potatoes fall apart in the freezing/thawing process and the texture of the soup changes. It still tastes good, but feels wrong. So I don't recommend freezing the leftovers.
Roasted Cauliflower White Cheddar Soup
Delicious! The scientist thought it had bacon in it because the roasted cauliflower had such a smoky flavor. He could not stop talking about how good it was. It is so much better than my old broccoli cheese soup. I used a cheese that I found at my market called New York Cheddar, in the specialty cheese display. It was a milder sharp cheddar. I also froze a jar of this but haven't thawed it out yet. I'm waiting for a cozy, rainy (or at least cloudy) day. I hope that day comes soon!
Thanks for stopping by.
