Cucumber, Tomato, and Feta Salad

You know that I love the combination of cucumber, onion, and tomatoes in salads.  This recipe is a variation on that theme, and this variation is loaded with so much flavor that it is guaranteed to wake up your palate.  The Feta cheese ads a hint of tanginess and the crumbly texture lends itself perfectly to this salad.  I even created my own vinaigrette to dress this salad.

Potato Bacon Soup

Potato Bacon Soup

I love to make potato soup.  It’s actually one of the few soups that Baker’s Man enjoys.  For this version, I used both canned milk and canned potatoes.   In this case, using canned milk serves a purpose beyond fulfilling requirements for  my 30 days of cans challenge.  Evaporated milk is concentrated milk that has had part of the water removed through evaporation.  It adds a creaminess to recipes without adding extra fat that would be added if cream, or half and half, were used.     This version of potato bacon soup is unique because the entire recipe is […]

Chicken Chile Verde

Chicken Chile Verde

When I hear someone mention Chile Verde, I  usually think of pork, but this version, which uses canned chicken, is a simple and delicious alternative.  It’s a quick and delicious meal for a busy week night.  I like to make this using great northern beans, so that the entire dish is mostly white, but it’s equally delicious when made with pinto beans.  The Chicken Chile Verde is delicious on its own, but it can also be served with warm tortillas, or fresh tortilla chips, and topped with shredded Monterey Jack cheese, fresh cilantro,  green onions and accompanied by your favorite […]
