These are recipes for simple, easy, homemade dishes. I make no promises about portion size or fat content, etc., but they are dishes that I have prepared and liked. I don't post pictures because I don't have fabulous lighting, nor a great camera. I can promise that I haven't just made things up without trying the recipe and this is all stuff other people have tried and no one spit anything out in disgust. Not yet, anyway! I don't take cool supporting photos of the steps along the way (but wait, are you telling me you are going to cook those nuts in the microwave in that METAL bowl?) but these are real recipes that a regular cook/baker should be able to figure out. I love the work of Deb at Smitten Kitchen - she provides the whole package!!! Good food, witty comments and lovely photos. If you want to see a REAL food blog, check her out.

Chicken and Corn Stew

This is a yummy stew/soup.  Hearty and throws together quickly.  If you add some more vegetables, you'll have a good one-dish meal.  (No, corn doesn't count as a vegetable!)

1 T oil
3/4 c chopped onion
1 garlic
2 chicken breast, diced
1/2 T cumin
1/4 t cayenne (or to taste)
1/4 t salt
1-1/2 c broth
5 oz (frozen) corn
1/2 of a 15oz can canellini beans, drained and rinsed
1/4 c sour cream
2 T cilantro, chopped

Heat oil and saute onion til soft and starting to brown.  Add garlic and saute another 30 seconds.  Add chichken and saute til slightly browned.  Add cumin, cayenne, salt, broth and bring to a boil.  Add corn and beans, and return to a boil.  Simmer 2 minutes.  Remove from heat and garnish with sour cream and cilantro.
