Streusel Topped Blueberry Muffins
These muffins were great! I used the zest of a whole lemon and sprinkle 2 teaspoons of cinnamon on the blueberries with the flour--they were great!

Minnesota Wild Rice Soup
I used this recipe as a base—we’re not vegetarian so there were some adjustments. I sautéed an onion and two cloves of (minced) garlic; then added a little over a cup of each sliced carrots and diced celery. I forgot about the roux, so it was made in a separate pan (3 tablespoons of butter, ¼ of flour plus a little olive oil to smooth it out—I think a cup of flour would’ve been WAY too much. Then a little chicken stock was added to thin it out) while the vegetables cooked. To the pot of veggies I added (4 cups total, including what was added to the roux) chicken stock, 3/4 Cup White Wine, 1 Cup Heavy Cream, 1 Cup Skim Milk, a (VERY) large chicken breast (cooked with some water and McCormick Garlic Pepper Grinder seasoning, then shredded), Fancy Minnesota Wild Rice (I go “home” to Minnesota for the Holidays each year and stock up on Wild Rice—I cooked the rice according to the package plus 2 Tablespoons of butter and maybe 2 teaspoons of the Garlic Pepper Grinder blend). I added the roux to the pot, gave it all a stir then added 1 Cup (sliced) Baby Bella Mushrooms plus a large (fresh) Rosemary sprig and 5-6 (fresh) sprigs of Thyme, seasoned with fresh ground sea salt and pepper (to taste)—this simmered for a half hour or so. When served, we sprinkled some (cooked, then crumbled) bacon on top. My boyfriend gobbled up two bowls (in the time I ate my one) only taking time to breathe and tell me how good it was…I say it was a success!

Bacon Wrapped Dates Stuffed with Blue Cheese
Another variation: stuffed with (1/3 the fat) cream cheese and diced dried cherries or dried cranberries. Always a hit!!! We’ll be trying with Bleu Cheese for Thanksgiving! I typically slice the date down one side and pipe the cream cheese mixture into the middle, start with the end of the bacon, roll the date until covered once, cut, then seal with a water soaked toothpick. Enjoy!!!
