Baked Potato Soup

Baked Potato Soup
Everything you love about a baked potato loaded with cheddar, bacon and chives, in the form of a soup! I've had several requests to make-over this soup (You really like to challenge me, don't you!) I was a little stumped on how I was going to take something as carb rich as potatoes, with added fat like sour cream, cheese and bacon, light! I knew I had to hide a vegetable in this soup to bulk it up without added calories. My first attempt was parsnips, but the flavor was too overwhelming. My second attempt was cauliflower, knowing how much you all love my Creamy cauliflower puree recipe and it was a winner. Ingredients: Pierce potatoes with a fork; microwave on high for 5 minutes turn over and microwave another 3 - 5 minutes, until tender. Meanwhile, steam cauliflower with water in a large covered pot until tender. Remove from heat.

Ree Drummond - StumbleUpon Iced coffee is my life. When I wake up, often around the time party animals on the west coast are just heading home, I start each day not with a cup of freshly brewed hot java, but with a tall, blessed glass of creamy iced coffee in a glass. I’ve been an iced coffee freakazoid for years and years. To say I couldn’t live without it is an understatement. It gives me the tools I need to cope. Iced coffee is a complicated thing, and there are many different approaches. SCRUMPTIOUS SCONES / Bakers share tips for creating a no-fail batch Something about spring makes us want to set out fresh linens, bake up something dainty and sweet and sit down for afternoon tea. What better way to commemorate springtime celebrations like Mother's Day and wedding showers than with tea and stacks of delicate scones? Well-made scones are a wonderful thing, moist and tender, with buttery crumbs that cling to your chin. "They are fattening, indigestible and quite glorious," writes Jane Garmey in "Great British Cooking" (Random House, 1981). Like biscuits, their American counterpart, scones are as easy as pie for experienced cooks, but can be intimidating to everyone else.

Broccoli Cheese and Potato Soup Thick and creamy lick-the-bowl good! This soup is loaded with potatoes, broccoli and cheese. A one-pot meal your whole family will love, ready in under 30 minutes.Snow Day!! Recipe for Roasted Cabbage with Lemon (For Phase One Fridays I highlight Phase One recipes from the past that have been my personal favorites. This Roasted Cabbage with Lemon was first posted in March 2010, and I've made it many, many times since then.) My friend Robin lives about 45 minutes away from Salt Lake, so sometimes when she has an early morning meeting she stays at my house. Last Friday was one of those nights, and since Robin loves cabbage I knew it would be a perfect time to test this recipe. I first spotted Roasted Cabbage with Lemon on a blog called Eat Repeat and bookmarked it to try, and then when I was talking to my friend Mary (another cabbage lover) she told me how she roasts red cabbage, so you can bet I'll be trying that soon as well. Robin and I loved this roasted cabbage so much I made it again the very next day to take photos for the blog.

Peanut Stew with Sweet Potatoes and Spinach Happy Friday. I’m starting off with a slightly near and dear topic to my heart. Creativity (and the lack thereof…) One minute I am feeling inspired and ready to conquer the world and the next, nothing. Chipotle's Beef Barbacoa Slow Cooker Recipe Ok, so maybe it’s not exactly like Chipotle’s, but it’s dang friggin’ close. Actually I think it’s identical to Chipotle’s Barbacoa, but there will always be That One Person who disagrees. First off, this isn’t my recipe. Homemade French Fries & Naturally Ella - StumbleUpon Why there is no need to purchase pre-made fries in the freezer aisle – in pictures and rhyme: One potato (find a potato) Two potato (cut the ends off) Three potato (cut slices) Four (cut fries from slices) Roasted Red Pepper Soup This soup is an excellent source of healthy vitamins – and it's delicious! If you don't have an immersion blender, a regular blender works fine. You can use jarred roasted peppers but roasting fresh red peppers is easy and adds a depth to the pepper flavor that can't be beat. One bowl will fill you up.
