    That is the link to my food blog where you will find the best soup ever. Or chowder. I call it soup, but it’s really called Chicken Corn Chowder. It’s amazing. And you can substitute some of the full fat items for low fat or fat free.

    It would take up too much space to type out my recipe for chicken and dumplings, so here’s the blurb I wrote about it when I submitted it to MothersClick, and a link to the full recipe:

    “This is a quick and easy recipe I came up with when I was in college, on a shoestring budget, and trying to put together a fabulous dinner with only items I had in the pantry/freezer. It was a huge hit, and in the years since I’ve had friends and family members ask me for my recipe so they could make it themselves. I usually get a call every couple of months from my sister asking “how much milk goes in the dumpling part again?” The best thing about this recipe is that it can be easily modified to fit whatever you have on hand, and whatever your family likes. The ingredients I typically use are included, but all you need is 2 cans of soup, a bag of frozen veggies, chicken, milk and biscuits. A fully balanced meal in 30 minutes from start to finish.”

    Oh I can’t wait to join in the fun. You’ll all have to wait until I can get 2 minutes to compose my thoughts and figure out which delicious ones I am willing to share.

    I love fall!

    Fall means pumpkin to me and I make a mean pumpkin cheesecake with a gingersnap crust. Unfortunately, the recipe is scattered among several pages of a steno pad in my kitchen. Must put it on a card. You want?

    I just found and made these pumpkin cookies and they were fan-freakin-tastic. I brought 4 dozen to a game night of 7 and came home with 10. If that. I might crank down the chips ratio a tad, but other than that, they were awesome.

    On the non-pumpkin side, I love these mashed potatoes, which are like some potatoes to go with your garlic and cheese. What’s not to like?

    P.S. I apologize in advance if the HTML doesn’t go through and comes out like crap.

    Delurking because I love to cook!

    Homemade Mac & Cheese (or the recipe that will bring him to his knees)

    6 tbs butter
    1/4 c flour
    2 3/4 c milk
    2 1/2 c cheese (mix it up. I like colby and chedder, but to each their own.)
    Box noodles (Rotini works well)
    salt/pepper to taste. I like to use season salt.
    Bread crumbs
    Parmesan Cheese

    Pre-heat oven to 350

    Cook noodles to al dente. Drain and set aside.

    In a large pot, melt butter and add flour (making a rue) mix well and heat for a couple of minutes.
    Add milk. Stir and heat until thickened.
    Add cheese, salt/pepper. Cook until cheese is good and melted.
    Add noodles. Mix until all noodles are well coated.
    Pour into a large casserole dish, lightly cover top with bread crumbs and Parmesan cheese.
    Bake for 30 minutes.

    Enjoy!!! I bribe people to do things for me with this recipe.

    We just had maple-glazed chicken and maple mashed acorn squash. They were really good!

    I love the Barefoot Contessa’s cheddar corn chowder. It has vegetables AND bacon.

    Also, I adore homemade gingerbread cake with whipped cream in the fall, but I don’t have a good recipe for it (I think I’ve always used [gasp] a mix).

    Yet another week in which Whoorl is my hero.

    You seem to always ask the questions in my head. So as usual, I’ll be mooching off the answers people leave you! :) And man… some of these recipes sound YUMMMMMMMY!

    Although I know this suggestion will make some cringe, I love Rachael Ray’s magazine (Everyday) and the latest issue had more delicious-looking recipes than ever before. I’m making a chicken/sweet potato/chorizo dish tonight with a side of pumpkin cheesecake.

    NOTHING says fall like pumpkin bars – and with a whipped cream cheese frosting, how can you go wrong?!

    I posted the recipe today – just click here.

    This is my most favorite butternut squash soup. DELISH!

    Also… I recently roasted a chicken that was brined in apple cider for 24 hours prior. Wonderful. Recipe here.
