My weekly wrap up of a few recipes that worked at our house.
Something They Clamored For
White Chicken Chili is a family favorite at our house, with even my pickiest eater requesting seconds. My oldest does ask, “Why do we call it chili, when it’s really more like a soup?” Hmm . . . things to ponder. But in the meantime it’s delicious. Here’s a PDF to my recipe: White Chicken Chili.
Morning Glory Muffins embellished from a recipe I found on the cooks.com website. Moist and sweet from the fruits and veggies, and some whole grains too from the whole wheat pastry flour. As a bonus, they freeze well, which makes them handy at our house for breakfast or snacks. Find a PDF of the recipe here: Morning Glory Muffins
Something From the “Easier than I thought” Files
Homemade Pizza Dough found at Epicurious. It does take a bit of advance planning as it needs time to rise and then sit in the fridge. Or you need to plan to make it ahead, freeze it, and then remember to pull the dough out of the freezer the day before you want to use it. The resulting crust if so worth it though, if you can afford the time. The dough is also so much easier to work with than store bought doughs for rolling out. This week we did a cheese pizza for the kids and for the adults one topped with an olive oil base, sauteed kale, roasted delicata squash, and fontina.
