Seasonal Sundays (Week 49) Supper Soups

A collection of soup recipes suitable for suppers, some weeknight fare, others saved for special occasions, some spartan, some meaty, something for everyone. I hope you love these recipes as much as I do ...

Lemon-Honey Chicken Skillet

Say hello to one of my very favorite cold-weather meals, chicken and vegetables cooked in a single skillet right on the stove. The meat is seasoned with warm spices and nestled into a bed of carrots (or butternut squash or sweet potato), peppers and mushrooms with a soothing sauce of honey and lemon juice. The dish remains entirely savory with a can't-get-enough vibe, especially with the vegetables. It's another Quick Supper and to minimize dishes, a One-Pot Supper too. It's perfect for taking the chill off cool evenings year-round! Real Food, Fresh & Seasonal. Another Quick Supper , a Kitchen Parade Specialty. Another One-Pot Supper , Hearty & Filling. Budget Friendly. Weeknight Easy, Weekend Special. Low Fat. High Protein. Weight Watchers Friendly. Naturally Gluten Free.

Seasonal Sundays (Week 48) Last-Minute Appetizers

It's a big food week in the U.S., thank you, Thanksgiving. Odds are good, the contours of this iconic holiday meal are set in stone by tradition or circumstances. And it's such a big meal, who does appetizers? Here, I've collected a few ideas, light bites that won't fill up the meal that somebody's gone to a lot of effort to cook. They're ones to inspire all the way into the new year ...

Chocolate Chili

My long-time homemade chili, meaty and full of spices and flavor and a touch of chocolate. Nothing says "welcome home" like a big pot of chili simmering on the stove but our favorite way to "slow cook" chili is in the oven. Feeding a crowd?
