Streusel Topped Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2011
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

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2010
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

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2010
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!!!

Chicken Corn Chowder

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2010
This was a good bowl of chowder! Like everyone, we made a few changes: added 1-cup of sliced carrots, 1-cup of diced celery, I was onion-crying too much to cut a shallot. The chicken (one pound, tenderloins) were cooked with a healthy coating (on each side) from McCormick’s Garlic Pepper Seasoning Grinder. We used two large baking potatoes and a bag of Steamfresh Southwestern Corn (which has light seasoning)—covered it all in (light) chicken broth then added a pound bag of steamed then pureed cauliflower. Liberally used salt and pepper…my boyfriend claimed all the leftovers (but I did get a small bowl for lunch--which received four compliments for smelling amazing)!
