Harry Potter Cooking Club

In October, it was my turn to host cooking club. This is a fun monthly get together that a few girls from our church and other friends in Huntsville go to. The host can either pick a restaurant to “host” at since a lot of us have younger kids and cleaning your house is more stressful these days, and those who want to attend RSVP, just attend like a girl’s night out. If you as the host decide to host at your house, you can pick a theme if you want, and then you can also pick all of the...

Lobster Crock Pot Bisque

Ever since my birthday, I have been wanting to eat some more Lobster Bisque. So I have tried two different recipes that had good reviews, and here is the final version that we like. It is a crock pot dish as well which is always nice.

Quick and Easy Enchilada Soup

This is a fast dinner recipe that my friend Rachel showed me, and that I make occasionally.  It tastes good as left overs and freezes really well too. I normally make one recipe, and then I stick half into the freezer right away. Also, you can keep almost the whole recipe in your pantry if need be. I know that some people are anti cans, so you can always substitute if need be.

Pasta E Fagioli

This is one of those dishes that I LOVE LOVE LOVE, Grant is weird about textures but even if something isn’t his favorite as long as there are no peas I don’t get any complaints especially since he didn’t have to cook.  I always get this soup at Olive Garden, and I think this is delicious. Grant thinks it is good,but he just isn’t a HUGE soup person. Anyway, this recipe is super easy and you can make it either in a stock pot on the stove or in a crock pot.

Frito Pie

Frito Pie is a dish that you will always see at potlucks or cookouts here in Texas at least, I cannot speak for the whole South. It is a very easy and tasty dish that most kids and adults like! Below is how to make it,but you can always tailor it to your specific likes and dislikes. We make it everyone once in a while since it is so easy and yummy.

Jessica’s Chili

Here is a really great and easy recipe that is a staple in our family. I prefer Chili with more beans than meat,but Grant isn’t a huge lover of Beans so I have to have a higher meat to bean ratio. The things Grant actually cares about crack me up. Before I met Grant, I didn’t realize that people had texture issues with foods. Oh well, him being particular about foods just makes me laugh inside. I love how certain things makes everyone unique.
