    Every recipe I’ve tried from this site has been amazing: Especially the fish stews. They are so easy and SO flavorful.

    I often scour Epicurious and CookingLight for recipes as well. Simply type in the keyword you want then sort by ratings. 95% of the results have been superb.

    “Atún del diablo”
    (Seared albacore tuna with pumpkin seed-sesame sauce & pickled red onions)

    scroll down to bottom of page:,_a_new_vision.htm

    Sounds hard, looks professional, but is incredibly easy.
    Basically with great tuna you can’t ruin it.
    Latin goes white-tablecloth!
    Impress your guests with the sophistication of south-of-the-border!

    I have some great fall recipes linked to on my site currently as part of my weekly meal plan. I definitely recommend the baked ziti, but the pork tenderloin with apples and leeks sound more fall-like. Chili is my favorite fall food and there’s a vegetarian black bean one linked to as well. I love fall because it seems like the perfect time for soup, which is my favorite food.

    I loved this spiced pumpkin soup last fall. It know it sounds a bit weird, but trust me, it all makes sense in your mouth!

    Please stop making your posts so useful. You’re making me feel bad for blogging about losing my keys.

    I recently saw Ina Garten make an apple/pear crisp that looked SO good. To my great surprise, one of my co-workers made the recipe over the weekend and shared it with us! Um, you definitely need to make it. It’s incredible.,1977,FOOD_9936_73751,00.html

    Here is one of my favorites on my website:

    Here is a new one I have yet to try, but sounds yummy: individual blueberry cakes

    1-1/2 cups blueberries (about 144 berries)
    1 box (8.5 ounces) corn bread mix (such as Jiffy)
    1/3 cup granulated sugar
    1/2 cup milk
    Confectioners’ sugar, for garnish
    Frozen whipped topping, thawed, optional

    1. Heat oven to 400 F. Generously coat 12 cups in a muffin pan with nonstick cooking spray. Place 5 or 6 blueberries in each muffin cup; set aside.

    2. In a medium-size bowl, stir corn bread mix, egg, granulated sugar and milk until combined.

    3. Top the blueberries with 1 tablespoon of batter. Repeat with another layer of 5 or 6 blueberries and 1 tablespoon of batter on top. Muffin cups should be about half full.

    4. Bake at 400 F for 10 minutes. Cool in muffin pan on rack for 5 minutes. Run a sharp knife around each cup and remove cakes to racks to cool completely.

    5. To serve, turn upside down. Dust with confectioners’ sugar and top with a dollop of whipped topping, if desired.

    Here’s a really delicious recipe for a Sweet Potato Souffle/Casserole:

    Sweet Potato Souffle

    3 cups sweet potatoes, baked & Mashed
    1 cup sugar
    2 or 3 eggs
    1 cup evaporated milk
    1 stick margarine/butter
    1 tsp vanilla

    for topping:
    1 cup chopped pecans
    1/2 cup flour
    1 cup brown sugar
    1 stick margarine/butter, melted

    Mix sweet potatoes, sugar, eggs, evaporated milk, margarine/butter and vanilla, and pour into buttered casserole. Mix pecans, flour, brown sugar and melted margarine/butter, and put on top of casserole mixture. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes.

    Note: When I make this I peel and boil the sweet potatoes and cut the margarine to 1/2 stick for each.

    My husbands absolute fave and super duper easy…

    Chicken in Wine Sauce

    4 breasts
    4 slices swiss cheese
    1 can cream of chicken soup
    1/2 soup can white wine ( I always use Chardonnay since that’s what we usually have)
    8-10 Smashed buttery crackers (topping)

    I season my breasts with just salt and pepper first then lay a slice of swiss on top of each one. In a separate bowl I mix the soup and wine and pour over the chicken. Then I sprinkle the club crackers on top. Bake at 375 for 45 minutes. I always make broccoli and rice with it and we use the extra sauce on the steamed broccoli. It is so easy and delish. Try it you’ll like it!

    As someone without a working kitchen, this comments section is making me both drooly and sobby. Although I was immensely cheered by Gramgranola’s confession that she seasons her breasts.
