Last week I posted a recipe for Bacon & Goat Cheese Stuffed Chicken which was freakin’ delicious. Today’s Italian-inspired chicken recipe is smothered with creamy mushrooms and served with pasta. Doesn’t get much better than that. I also swapped out traditional linguine for whole-wheat linguine to up the fiber.

I think the nuttiness of the whole-wheat also compliments the tang and creaminess of the chicken. Also, don’t mind all the chicken recipes, it was on super sale at the grocery store. Recipe Rundown Taste: Bright and tangy with a deep savory flavor thanks to the mushrooms and deglazing. Chicken ScallopineServes 6From The Pioneer Woman Cook pasta according to package directions.

Chicken Sate with Spicy Peanut Dipping Sauce | Handle the Heat. Lightened Up Spaghetti Carbonara. I feel like for most of us the words "healthy" and "light" really mean "boring" or "tasteless". Whenever I eat diet foods that are supposed to taste like their fully loaded counterparts, they usually tend to be more reminiscent of cardboard than lighter versions of the original.

I recently told my husband I was going to work on a recipe for a healthy carbonara, and he understandably snickered. After all, if you're going to eat something called carbonara, it better well taste like three darn good things: Parmesan, bacon and pasta -- and "light" is not an adjective I'd use to describe any of those foods! So instead of substituting ingredients, I simply use less of the offending ones (except cream, that one doesn't make the cut here). I also like to use a combination of eggs and pasta water to help retain the lusciousness and creaminess of a classic carbonara. Which reminds me: this dish serves six, but if you eat it all on your own, it's definitely no longer qualifies as light! Baked Chili Cheese Fries. We’re back in the mix, aren’t we. Back from vacation. Back to school. Back rifling through the closet for our cowl neck sweaters. Back contemplating hot tea and where the pumpkin comes from in pumpkin lattes.

I love Fall. I thought I’d transfer my crisp demeanor to the oven. These Baked Chili Cheese Fries are one of my favorite recipes in the Joy the Baker Cookbook. There’s a trick to these baked fries. It’s a food illusion. Chili spices include: chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, red pepper flakes, and a spicy ancho chili powder (for kicks). Rustically peeled potatoes. Cutting potatoes into French Fries always feels fancy to me. It the geometry confuses you (because it totally did me)… here’s a more detailed description of how to slice the fry.

Zucchini, ham and ricotta fritters. I am the last person on the internet to join the Cute Overload train; I mean, I get it, it’s cute. I love cute, you love cute, cute makes the birds sing and the sun shine and the world go round and tra-la-la. I get it. But man, oh man. Sometime in the last two weeks it hit me like a ten ton truck and people, the cute is killing me. I can’t breathe sometimes, the cute is so strong. I’m tag-surfing snorgle on Flickr, sputtering nonsensicals like “piggle snorgle tiny mouf action ohmy gah!

In the meanwhile, you can consider me officially smitten with Donna Hay. My only complaint, and really, not much of one, is that it says this serves two and I’d argue with a small salad this easily serves four.

Zucchini, Ham, Basil and Ricotta Fritters Adapted from Donna Hay Magazine, Issue 29. Hot and smoky baked beans. Thursday, July 20, 2006 I think that the basic instinct that gets us in the kitchen “after all those messy sustenance issues have been attended to” is a deep-seated desire to make something taste a little better than the way we’ve come to accept it. It’s why there are ten thousand crab cake recipes and a line of followers behind each, and it’s why everyone has an idea carved into their base philosophy of the way corn bread is supposed to taste (and most of it fails to please because it’s not as savory/rich, sweet/cakey or textural/salty as they believe pone was intended to be).

I’d also argue that this is why few bother to make their own ketchup, as Heinz figured out a long time ago what most of us expect of it and why reinvent the wheel? I’m pretty sure it’s why this summer I’ve become obsessed bordering-on-frenzied with figuring out how to make all those American BBQ classics unboring. And what beans they are! Hot and Smoky Baked BeansBon Appetit, July 1999 Preheat oven to 350°F. Roasted Poblanos in Cream Sauce (Rajas con Crema) Recipe. Method 1 Char the whole poblano chile peppers on all sides.

The best way to do this is over an open flame of a gas stove. Just place the raw whole chile peppers directly on the grate covering the flame and let the flame blacken the outside skin of the peppers. When one side has blackened, use tongs to turn the chile over a little so the flame can blacken another side. You can also use a broiler to blacken the chile peppers, but direct flame is the best way. Sometimes with a broiler the chiles end up cooking too much before they blacken. They should still be a little firm. 2 When the chiles are cool to touch, remove them from the bag. 3 Once the blackened outer skin is removed, open up the chiles and cut out and discard the stems, seeds, and inner veins. 4 Heat the butter (can use vegetable oil instead if you want) in a large cast iron skillet on medium heat. 5 Add the poblano chiles to the onions.

Serve with warmed corn or flour tortillas. Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives : Guy Fieri. Lady and Sons Chicken Pot Pie Recipe : Paula Deen. Directions Crust: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Soooooo… you know that episode of Sex and the City where Miranda has to dump dish soap on top of chocolate cake just so she will stop eating it?? Uh. Yeeeeeah. These are like… of that caliber.

Line a mini muffin with with liners. Sigh. Best Steak Marinade in Existence Recipe. Potato Rings with Homemade Buttermilk Ranch. If french fries and onion rings ever got married and had a baby, I think it would be something like this…a potato ring. You have a light and crispy outer coating with a soft potato and caramelized onion center…why? Because we can I guess, who knows…but it’s kind of fun, right?! My boyfriend and his friends have this thing where every super bowl they have a “Deep-Fry Fest” where, well they deep fry everything; so if you’re anything like my boyfriend you now have another “Deep Fry Fest” recipe to use!

Two things I can’t stress enough is: 1) the importance of having the potatoes completely coated; no holes please, or the mashed potatoes will pour out of the holes once they hit the oil. 2) the importance of the rings being frozen solid before entering the oil…it just helps with the frying, that’s all. Finally, since ranch is pretty much good with anything it only seemed natural to pair these savory, fried treats with a quick and easy homemade ranch sauce.

Moist Chocolate Cake. There’s something to be said for a cake that you can whip up at 9 o’clock on a Friday night, after a serious doozy of a week, when you need some baking therapy that requires little to no brain power. By the time this past weekend hit, I think anything requiring technique or poise in the kitchen would have had induced some kind of cerebral short circuiting – I imagine there would have been sparks, probably some twitching and likely even drool. Okay fine, so there might have been drool anyway.

Actually, when the cake emerged, there was probably drooling and clapping. I tell you that because I trust you won’t judge me. This cocoa-based cake is deeply chocolaty and incredibly moist.
