This seems like such an obvious recipe to me that I looked it up first, to make sure it hadn’t been done a thousand times. There were a lot of just Boursin mushrooms, and a few Boursin and spinach stuffed chicken (um sounds amazing). Do you know what Boursin is? How many times can one say Boursin in a short paragraph?
For me this could be called “Grower’s Market” chili. I often get organic ground chicken from the meat guy and most of these veggies are readily available at the springtime market. This came together shockingly quick and was the perfect weeknight dinner. I think I’ve said this before but if/when cooking for folks who avoid gluten or dairy, soup is the best answer.
We eat a lot of pancakes. I make these pancakes for the kids in double batches and they’re always in the freezer, ready be put in the toaster for an easy breakfast. Rich used to partake (we’re talking 8-10 at a time) so he mourned the loss when he went gluten-free. So get this – I bought a gluten free mix!
Remember when I said you could have gluten free chocolate cake and it’d still be good? The cake I linked there is also dairy free and free of refined sugars, so it still has it’s place (and I’ve made it many times for a “wholesome” treat), but flourless chocolate cake is a renowned dessert that just so happens to not have gluten. I now know what I’ll be making for Rich’s birthday parties from here on out.
My husband has always preferred the oatmeal raisin cookie. He is in the minority and I know this because I always do a cookie bar graph with my little preschoolers at work. Chocolate chip is the overwhelming favorite, with snickerdoodle or “sugar” snagging second. Usually one kid likes oatmeal raisin – apparently this was my husband. One day out of curiousity, I probed deeper into this puzzling matter. I got it out of him that he always figured oatmeal raisin was the healthiest choice. Two things – one, he is wrong. Two, what a strange little boy he must have been.
Kill me. This sauce, along with french fries, tops the list of foods that I can’t be alone with. The boundaries are blurry, bordering on dangerously undefined. If I wasn’t planning to serve this to friends in a few days, I would have happily taken a spoon to it. A large spoon. Maybe a ladle.
I quite enjoy meals that look fancy but take no time at all. No time, and no real skill. We had this on a week night but I would absolutely serve it for company – guilt free and elegant is a rarity but the two most definitely make friends in this dish.
Another win in the crockpot. This tough meat was cooked down to total Thai tenderness. Say that three times fast.
