Tom Kha Gai

Today my daughter was home from school sick, and when I asked her what she wanted for lunch, instead of requesting the classic chicken noodle soup, she requested this thai chicken coconut soup instead, which is one of our favorites. I know I throw the word “favorite/favoUrite” around a lot, (don’t mind me, I never know whether to spell British or American English)! But seriously, this is mine and my kids most-loved soup, and it checks so many of the boxes too: super quick & simple to make and to clean up, healthy (enough!) Feeds a crowd, (or makes plenty for leftovers), and everyone seems to love it. Minus my husband who would prefer a 5-star spicy Tom Yum instead. (Which I can post about later). Anyway, if you love thai food, coconut soup, or just want to try something different to your standard chicken noodle, try this recipe! I hope it becomes one of your new favorites too! Continue reading

Chicken Posole

I often tell my mother in law that she’s the one that needs a food Blog, since so many of my recipes are either hers, or have been inspired by her! Everything she makes is amazing, but one of her fortes is soups and stews (and her home made dinner rolls to go with them, that I might have to post about later!) my whole family love her Chicken Posole recipe, but my son Braden goes crazy for it! It just makes him SO happy when I make it… so I make it a lot! Continue reading

White Chicken Chili

This is one of my favorite go-to family meals of all time, and I have lost count of how many times I have made it, although I can clearly remember the first time. We were sailing around the San Juan Islands with my husbands parents, the weather was getting cool, and we had a bowl of this Chili under blankets up on deck, in the middle of the serene Puget Sound. Everyone loved it, and it warmed us right up– it was the perfect thing to serve then, and it’s the perfect dish to serve now that the weather is getting cool again. Continue reading

Crockpot French Onion Soup

My husband’s family grow potatoes and onions for a living, which means I get them fresh and for free, which I love! When I get them from the potato/onion shed it’s usually in a mass quantity which means I get to share with friends and neighbors, and use the rest before they go bad. When I have an abundance of onions like I did this week, the only thing to use them all for is French onion soup– one of my husband’s all time favorite meals! Continue reading
