Today we made Chocolate Crinkles. This recipe made over 3 dozen cookies, which is great. I use a melon scooper to scoop out the dough, and that works well for portions.
We packaged some in a box with some fudge for the kids’ piano teacher. When I made these cookies last year, my niece said they were one of her favorites!
I made a salad for a Christmas party over the weekend. It was simple, tasty, healthful, and nicely-colored for the holiday season. I mixed some spring mix lettuce with glazed walnuts and dried cranberries. I like to serve this type of salad with a raspberry vinaigrette dressing.
For dinner last night I made Chicken with Cream. My good friend from Guatemala taught me how to make this. I realized it might be a good option for Christmas with the red and green peppers. When my husband took his first bite of dinner, he said, “YUM!”. That’s when I know something is really good. ~smile~
Chicken with Cream
serves 4 or 5 people
Simple and delicious!
1 1/2 chicken breast, cut into pieces
1 Green and Red Pepper, chopped into chunks
1 Onion, chopped
Mushrooms (fresh), a handful, chopped
Salt and Pepper
Cook peppers, onion, and mushrooms in oil or butter. Add chicken pieces and cook until done. I like to saute everything until it is nicely browned. It gives it a good, rich flavor. When done, remove from heat, and add 1 cup of cream with salt and pepper to taste! Serve over rice.
