Herb-Crusted Sirloin Tip Roast and More than you Wanted to Know


With beef being one of the 
Midwest’s favorite meats, 
definitely mine, 
here’s an intensely flavored sirloin tip roast!  


A lean cut from the bottom sirloin, this economical choice is delicious when roasted with a rub and carved into thin slices to enjoy its rich, deep beefy flavor.  

Roasted Robusto Italian Chicken Breasts with Mushrooms


This recipe is truly simple and seriously satisfying!


I’ve mentioned more than once that I’m a big fan of Wish-Bone Robusto Italian Dressing.  It’s not only great on salad; it does a great job of marinating meat also.


Chicken and Stuffing Bake and Some Winter Diamond Dust!

 
Not since 1873 has it been this cold, 
on this date, March 4th, 
here in Chicagoland, 
blame it on the polar vortex!

Our thermometer read -4° this morning, that's with a windchill of -20°.

Diamond dust over Lake Michigan, Chicago

Diamond dust has been in the air this bitter cold winter ~ tiny ice crystals falling from an apparently clear sky, when the temperatures are subzero.  In sunlight, moonlight, or artificial light, the ice crystals glitter and shine like diamonds. 


Golden Baked Turbot with a Twist


It’s the 
"champagne of the flatfish," 
according to the famous 
German TV-cook Johann Lafer. 




Turbot is not an easy fish to find in the markets around here.  So I was happy when Bubba told me that Fresh Market had turbot for sale.

Healthified Broccoli Cheddar Soup on a Cold Winter Day!


Sometimes, on a chilly day, you just need a bowl of hot, creamy, cheesy soup for a comforting meal, just not all the calories and fat though.



I found a plethora of recipes on the internet for broccoli soup and settled on this healthier version of it, a recipe courtesy of Food Network Kitchen. 


Southern Fried (Baked) Chicken ~ à la Blue Bloods


Bubba knows my weaknesses ~ 
cookbooks and “Blue Bloods!”  
 He surprised me with this 
great cookbook 
for Christmas and I could tell 
this "fried" baked chicken recipe 
would be a winner!




Southern cooks and barbecue pitmasters may want to skip right past this recipe, because it’s a bit of a Southern cooking sacrilege, per The Blue Bloods Cookbook.

Delicious ~ One-Skillet Italian Sausage Pasta!


The alluring temptation of a one-skillet meal, what cook can resist?


I’ve seen this recipe many times, many places, had the ingredients on hand, and plunged in.  The original has just 5 ingredients ~ I cooked it with 7 ~ added mushrooms and black pepper.

Heloise's Olive Pecan Spread and a Harsh Winter!


Tom Skilling is predicting lows of -22°, that’s 22° below 0°for tomorrow night, and -20° for Wednesday night-----windchill -42°!
 
He says the highs will be 3° Tuesday, -12° for Wednesday, and -2° Thursday.

We're having the harshest, coldest winter here in decades...

And to top it all of, we had another 6” of snow overnight! 


Just plowed!

The Best ~ Classic Chicken and Dumplings


This is an all-time favorite meal here at our house!  
And for good reason ~ 
it’s a delicious comfort dish for chilly snowy weather!


Chicken always gets top billing, but it’s the dumplings that sway people so easily.  There are a plethora of ways to make this dish, and this time I followed Paula Deen’s most of the way...
