Whisk in the flour and cook until golden, 3 to 4 minutes, then gradually whisk in the half-and-half until smooth. Add the chicken broth, bay leaves and nutmeg, then season with salt and pepper and bring to a simmer. Reduce the heat to medium-low and cook, uncovered, until thickened, about 20 minutes.

Add the broccoli and carrot to the broth mixture and simmer until tender, about 20 minutes. Add the cheese to the soup and whisk over medium heat until melted.

Slutty Brownies Now I don’t want to over sell this, so I’m going to be conservative and simply say, that these are… The Best Brownies In The WORLD. I know, big statement. They’re called Slutty Brownies because they’re oh so easy, and more than a little bit filthy. They’re best served warm from the oven, with good quality vanilla ice cream (devastatingly I didn’t have any in the freezer this time, so I guess I’ll just have to make them again). They take about 45mins to make, including baking time. The ultimate comfort food, whipped up within the hour. You will need… 1 Box of cookie mix, 1 Box of brownie mix, 2 Eggs, 2 Packs of Oreos (double stuffed ones are even better if you can find them) Some oil & your favourite ice-cream (optional) Preheat your oven to 350F, 180C, gas mark 4. Line a baking tray with grease proof paper. Squidge (technical term) the cookie dough into a lined baking tray, until it covers the bottom. Cover this layer with your Oreos. Mix up your brownie batter. & pour over your Oreos. Bake for 30mins.

Harvest Black Bean Soup The soup is good fresh from the pot, but even better for a day or 3 or 4 in the fridge. Refrigerates up to 6 days and freezes for 4 months. A soup meant for using up those survivors of the vegetable bin turns them into prime assets when they're browned then cooked with black beans. Believe it or not, pumpkin pie spices are the making of this soup. Who knew dried beans practically light up when simmered with a generous helping of these fresh ground so-called "sweet" spices. Cook to Cook: With each reheat, make it new with flavorings like simmered red wine and orange peel going in one night, a topping of chopped apple and onion the next, and a puree of roasted peppers and dollops of yogurt on another. Ingredients Instructions 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6.

no-bake energy bites I probably should have poured a nice stiff drink recipe for you all on this loveliest of lovely tax days. Especially for my fellow small business owners who just gave half of their revenue back to the government. Good grief, I won’t even go there. Instead though, I thought I’d offer my idea of a more comforting alternative. Pasta. When life is good, and when life gets crazy, I turn to pasta. And just as it has for years, this one hit the spot.

black bean soup + toasted cumin seed crema So, I told you about the brisket. Or, the way we talk about it, thhhuuuuh brisssssket, it’s deliciousness making our syllables stretch out melodramatically. We pulled it into tacos with slaw and pickled onions and it was a great end to a great year.

Strawberry Kiwi Fruit Leather | FoodBabbles Maddy has been on a “fruit roll-ups” kick lately. Not the actual name brand kind that I so vividly remember peeling away from a cellophane wrapper when I was a kid. No, Maddy’s been eating the Gerber toddler kind. I don’t feel too bad about her eating them in moderation although if she had her way she would eat the entire box of 5 in one sitting. So the other day while at my in-laws house, my mother-in-law said “I can’t believe you haven’t tried making these from scratch yet.” That’s all it took… Guess what I did the very next day? The other brilliant and wonderful thing about homemade fruit leather is you can make it with hardly any sugar! Just ask Maddy! Enjoy! Strawberry Kiwi Fruit Leather Easy, healthy homemade fruit leather for a guilt-free treat. Ingredients 2 1/4 cups chopped strawberries 2 1/4 cups chopped kiwis 1 tablespoon lemon juice Sugar, to taste (I used 3 tablespoons) Instructions Place the fruit in a saucepan with the lemon juice over medium-low heat.

cheesy, oozy guacamole bean dip I first had this at a party about 10 years ago. That recipe was my inspiration for this healthier version. We like to make this for football games. My husband Christopher is a huge Cleveland Browns fan. Reminder: this recipe doesn’t belong in the superhero family, but it’s loads better than what you usually find in party dips.
