What’s a better way to get back into a swing of things after a tropical vacation then a comforting dish of something heart warming. That’s exactly what I did tonight. Returning to a 10 hour work day after 10 days of vacation is not a simple thing. Naturally for dinner I wanted to have something satisfying and that satisfaction came from a bowl of a spectacular chili. Here are my favorite healthier and lighter comfort meals.
There are simply no words for how much Hubby and I enjoy this fantastic Guinness Beer Chili. I have made numerous pots of chili in the past and this one is by far the best one. After years of perfecting the recipe, I finally made the perfect bowl of chili. Needless to say this will be the only one my husband will ever allow me to cook. 🙂
I love love love this Pozole. Over the years I have cooked and tried so many variations of this incredibly flavorful stew. There are so many ways to make one: authentic versions, restaurant versions, pork, chicken or even seafood which I tasted in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. All fantastic and unbelievably satisfying, this recipe is my compilation of tastes and experiences.
This Red Wine Braised Chicken is a very special recipe that brings childhood memories and what can be better than great childhood memories. My mom used to cook a dish like this when I was just a kid and this is my updated, more grown up version of this yumminess.
When I think of comfort I think of a pot pie. Don’t you? A chicken pot is a quintessential comfort dish. Add biscuits and you’re in foodie heaven. In this Chicken Pot Pie with Herb Biscuits I combined the two but lightened it up a little. The end result – MMM MM M!
Ok, I’ll give it to you. When you think of comfort, fish is usually not part of it. However, you have to trust me and try my Cod Baked with Chorizo and Cannellini Beans. First and foremost, I never imagined how good cod is with white wine and beans. Second, it is good for you. And last, it takes no effort and has become Kurt’s favorite dinner. 🙂
You know those nights when you need something cozy, yummy, simple, quick? Your answer lies in this Millet with Mushroom Gravy. Don’t like millet, then sauce it onto rice, top it over mashed potatoes or have it with noodles.
I’ll give you one moment to think about this – Sausage Hash with Baked Eggs. Breakfast, brunch, dinner? Sure no problem. Quick & easy? Sure no problem. Delicious? ABSOLUTELY.
