Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies 008

I don’t understand anyone who doesn’t like chocolate or peanut butter.  But if you do, you’ll love this cookie.  Not only are the chocolate and peanut butter mixed together, you get an added zing of peanut butter when you bite into it.  Finding this recipe on a blog called My Simple Kitchen I haven’t looked  back since.

Pizza Fritters

Pizza Fritters, Chicken and Corn Soup 002One of my favorite dishes not only to eat but to make are these pizza fritters.  Just a little twist on the pizza. These are fried.  I learned this variation while cooking with and Italian chef on the Amalfi Coast.  Very simple, topped with a marinara sauce, mozzarella cheese and basil.  You could add some of your favorite toppings or just top with cheese. Whatever way you choose to eat these, they are wonderful!

Soup With Bones

Soup With Bones 010I remember telling you not to throw your bones from your meat away.  Whether it be from a roasted turkey, chicken, baked ham, or a roast of beef.  Here is the reason why.  They make terrific soup with loads of health benefits and flavor.  On a cold snowy day like the one we are having today, this will warm you up and make you feel satisfied.  Of course soup is not just for snowy days but good for you on any kind of day.  If I don’t have the bones in my freezer or I am running low I take a trip to my butcher or the grocery store and purchase some.  Great to have on hand in the freezer.

Soup is the easiest thing in the world to make.  Just open up your fridge create your own and within a couple of hours you have a super meal.  So get started.

Turkey Soup

Turkey Soup 011I hope everyone saved their turkey bones.  One of the most flavourful soups made is one made from bones.  Can be any kind of bones.  Chicken, beef, veal, pork and yes turkey.  Bones that have roasted first improve the flavour of the broth.  But better still a long cooking time helps to remove as many mineral and nutrients as possible from the bones.  This sort of broth is extraordinarily rich in nutrients.  Minerals, amino acids, gelatin and many more are found in bone broth.  These things help detoxification, digestion, support skin health, the adrenals, bones and teeth and they say bone broths will help our body’s ability to create healthy blood.  So why wouldn’t we want to eat soup.  Our grandmothers were correct in giving us chicken soup when we became ill.  It helps make our symptoms and side effects of colds, flu and upper respiratory infections less severe.

So what are you waiting for?  Put on a pot of soup with bones in it.
