Good times, yummy snacks, and funny commercials. Taco Casserole. Quick & Cheesy Chicken Pot Pie. For the longest time my quick, go-to Chicken Pot Pie recipe involved canned cream of chicken soup and a homemade biscuit topping.
I’m *trying* to stay away from processed foods and to feed my family more naturally, so I came up with this recipe. Which, in my mind, tastes way better then the original anyways. I simplified it with an even easier biscuit topping, using the homemade bisquick mix that I always keep on hand in my fridge.

The added cheese in the crust really puts this over the top for me, making it that much more hearty and comforting.

Spanish Chicken with Chorizo and Potatoes. We've managed to both forget our fifth anniversary last Friday.
I don't know if it's due to my working like mad before having to catch a delayed flight back from Shanghai late in the evening while Vijay was too comfortable with me leaving him a free man for almost two weeks. The nearly forsaken milestone was only remembered when Vijay examined the leather strap of his watch, then sparking up a recap of our various gifts to each other past birthdays, Christmases and yes, the day we got together. Putting aside our ailing memories - mine is not a surprise, Vijay forgot the exact date and had to check his diaries - we seized the day and celebrated with an all-American dinner, ending up with the love of my life asking if I could make him bacon topped cheesy fries and Buffalo wings with blue cheese dressing next.
