Cheesy Asparagus Stuffed Chicken Rolls

I was feeling a little adventurous last night while thinking about what to make for dinner. When I mentioned my idea to Mr. Comfortable he was a bit uncertain. He loves the ingredients but he was unsure about combining them. But I’m happy to report he loved the Cheesy Asparagus Stuffed Chicken Rolls!

An Inadvertent Recipe Thief

Not long ago I posted a recipe for my  Cheddar Lake Biscuits. I’ve been making them forever and I was quite sure I’d come up with the recipe myself. But a couple of days ago I pulled out a box of Bisquick™ and noticed a recipe for Cheddar Bay Biscuits on the back of the box. So now it’s time for the confession of an inadvertent recipe thief.

Parmesan Lemon Roasted Asparagus

Since Andi brought me that big bag of asparagus I can’t stop thinking about it. I made Simple Roasted Asparagus the other day but I had asparagus left and still wanted more! Just to jazz things up I listened to a suggestion Margaret from Soul Food 101 and made Parmesan Lemon Roasted Asparagus.

Dried Cranberry & Candied Pecans

After making homemade croutons a few days ago I had a hankering for another salad topper we enjoy. Mr. Comfortable picked up a bag of dried cranberry & candied pecans a while back. We loved them. In fact I loved them not just on salads. I snacked on them until they were gone. Oops. So I made a big batch of homemade Dried Cranberry & Candied Pecans. Now there’s enough for salads and snacks!

Braised Chicken Thighs Italiano

Braising is an underused way to cook in my opinion. When you braise meats they slowly take on the flavor of the braising liquid without losing their own unique flavor. And the liquid is infused with the flavor of the meat. It’s a win-win! Braised Chicken Thighs Italiano is one of our favorite ways to have chicken thighs because the flavors combine and create something wonderful!

Homemade Croutons

Lately I haven’t been doing a lot of “real” cooking. My migraines have been pretty unrelenting and food is something I don’t want to think about let alone cook. I’ve been eating packaged croutons for breakfast and lunch because they’re convenient. But poor Mr. Comfortable was running out of them for his salads. So I decided to make a big batch of homemade croutons to satisfy both of us.

Shrimp & Mushrooms in Lemon Garlic Cream Sauce

I’ve been keeping busy for the last few days with projects outside of the kitchen. While it’s been kind of nice not to have to devote a lot of time to cooking I miss the meals. So last night I decided to pull my apron back on and make Shrimp & Mushrooms in Lemon Garlic Cream Sauce. It’s a delicious meal full of hearty flavors that will satisfy any “real meal” cravings!
