We had a cold wave here in San Antonio & that means my hubs will ask for this chicken soup.  I got this recipe from a friend’s mom over 10 years ago. Ok, I’m lying…it was way further back than that. This soup requires stretchy pants, a fire & a comfy chair. Enjoy!

Buttermilk Pecan Chicken

This recipe has been a family favorite for years. I first found it in my 1989 Southern Living Annual Cookbook. I’ve made a few tweaks over the years for ease of preparation. This chicken is flavorful, rich and impressive. I served it with Mustard Roasted Potatoes and a simple salad. You will love this recipe!

If you’re looking for a fancilious holiday dinner idea, I highly recommend this easy meal. I promise you can do it! The hardest thing is peeling & deveining the shrimp. I sautéed the shrimp with a homemade tomato sauce, but you could certainly use store bought. To make it extra special I topped it with lightly browned Italian chickpea crumbs and lemon zest. Amazing flavors and so festive!

Remember the Shawarma White Sauce I posted about the other day… Well, here is the chicken they made on the Today Show to go with that sauce. It was shared by Ayesha Nurdjaja, the executive chef of Shuka in NYC. This chicken has an incredible flavor and was very easy to prepare. We really enjoyed eating this chicken in butter lettuce leaves. Yum!

I recently had the opportunity to participate in a CIA Plant-Forward Cooking Boot Camp at the San Antonio location. Over the 5-days of cooking amazing foods, I also learned many new techniques. I actually made major improvements in my elliptical cutting skills & so much more. I also used products, such as the tofu in this dish that I have been curious about, but have never been brave enough to try.

This particular dish was a bit labor intensive, yet so worth it. I found all the ingredients easily at my local grocer. I encourage you to try out this type of cooking!

Lemon Spaghetti w/Parmesan & Basil

Fresh, easy and delicious! This pasta is great in its own or as a side dish. I serve this with salmon or other fish, and it is a wonderful compliment. It was also an awesome opportunity for me to use basil from my herb garden. Another hint: Keep a small block of Parmesan in your freezer & you’ll always have it in hand, when needed. Enjoy!

This super easy pasta dish is made from chickpea penne pasta, a jar of your favorite marinara, lean ground beef and plenty of cheese! This is one of my family’s most requested meals. My granddaughter has asked for it for two years straight for her first day of school dinner. Enjoy!
