Chunky Sausage Tomato Soup

First off, I want to apologize - I experienced some odd camera malfunctioning (probably user error) last week and ended up losing the "in process" photos of about three or four different recipes.  I still managed to get pictures of the finished dish (or the leftovers when I had them for lunch the next day) … Continue reading Chunky Sausage Tomato Soup

Sweet Chile Cashew Chicken Salad

This recipe started out in our little black book several years ago from a potluck dish brought by a friend's mom every year to his Christmas party.  The original was always a hit, but the main ingredient was thin noodles - either angel hair pasta or rice noodles.  So, when we changed our way of … Continue reading Sweet Chile Cashew Chicken Salad
