Green Goddess Chicken Salad

We got together last night with neighbors and had a little last minute pot-luck dinner (basically, “Hey, let’s share our dinners and make it a party!”) We found this recipe in a little Food & Wine booklet and it was a big hit and I plan to put it into our regular rotation! The recipe transcribed is the directly from the recipe book, though we made a few modifications based on what we had, I want to give the original recipe a try before making the modifications part of the permanent record.

Citrus Veggie Kabobs with Key Lime Chimichurri

I came home to the most delicious & feel good dinner, so I wanted to make sure to get the recipe written down right away so we can replicate this awesomeness over and over again!

Corn & Crab Bisque (+ Peppery White Cheddar Biscuits!)


This soup was a little more complex than something I normally take on in the kitchen, but I was so enamored by a corn crab bisque I had at Bistro Boudin in San Francisco over the holidays, I wanted to make an attempt to recreate it at home. It was a bit overwhelming, but it was quite delicious, and now that I’ve done it once, I think it will be a lot less painful to give it another go. So, if you don’t want to try cooking this yourself, let me know and I’ll have you over for dinner some evening this winter.

You’ll see how ridiculously decadent these brownies are when looking at the recipe.
