    Mini Chicken Pot Pie Cupcakes-crop-vert

    Who said cupcakes should only be served as a dessert with chocolate, vanilla and some other sweet ingredients? Well, they make for a perfect appetizer as well if you combine the ingredients in the right way.
    Take for example, these chicken pot pie cupcakes, presented by Heather: many of us are a sucker for chicken pot pie as this is a real comfort food, and the fact that with only few ingredients and few time you can make an amazing appetizer makes you wanna try them even more.
    I have done them for New Year’s eve party and everyone enjoyed every bite of them! :D

    Bon appetite!

As I said for me October is the pumpkin month :) And I also said I will post as many interesting pumpkin recipes I will found.
I did post a few so far and now is time for a delicious pumpkin cheesecake dessert.
I am a big pumpkin pie fan, and I believe I could be a even bigger fan of these pumpkin cheesecake bars.
So I am trying these…some of my friends that leave abroad are coming to visit me this weekend and I think the combo pumpkin puree with sour cream, nutmeg, vanilla and caramel sauce will make the perfect welcome dessert!

Glazed Blueberry Lime Loaf

Glazed Blueberry Lime Loaf

 

Ok…I must say I think this is the perfect loaf I have ever seen!
I think what is best about this recipe is that is an all season dessert: it will work wonderful baked as a Christmas dessert with a hot cup of cocoa and it will be as wonderful if you enjoy a slice of these in the summer, on the porch of you house with a glass of lemonade.
The combo of the two main ingredients blueberries and lime is intriguing and gives a tartness flavor to the loaf that works wonderful with the sweetness of the white chocolate glaze.
Truly amazing loaf idea!

Deep-Dish Cookie Pie

Deep-Dish Cookie Pie

 

I like the combination of any kind of hot apple or chocolate pie and cold vanilla ice cream on top of it.
What is a plus for the recipe below is the lower content of calories then a regular deep-dish cookie pie: about 200 calories/per slices compared with 700 calories/per slice.
I am a big fan of any cookie cake/pie, and if I can find the healthier version for them even better, and a reason more to try them.
What is great about it and make me wanna try it even more is the fact that I think is amazing how a dessert so unhealthy-looking can be so healthy (as healthy as it can be taking into consideration that sugar and chocolate cookies are used :) )/

Potatoes with yogurt sauce

Potatoes with yogurt sauce

When you work all day, you do not have the time or the mood to cook for dinner elaborate dishes (at least not all the time).

So, me to the rescue :D … a simple, ready in 40 minutes potatoes recipe, that will work perfectly for a workday dinner :)

You will need (for 6 servings):

  • 1 kg boiled potatoes (boil them in they skin)

  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 600 ml yogurt

  • salt and pepper

As I say is simple to make this potatoes with yogurt sauce:

  1. Peal the boiled potatoes and cut them in slices of 2-3 mm Put them on a plate and sprinkle olive oil on them.
  2. Grate the cucumbers and put them colander so the juice can drain.
  3. Cut the red bell peppers into thin strips of 2-3 mm each.
  4. Put aside some mint leaves and chop the rest of them.
  5. Put the yogurt in a bowl and add the crushed garlic, the chopped mint, the grated cucumber, the lemon juice, the salt and pepper.
  6. After the sauce is smooth, pour it all over the potatoes.
  7. Over the sauce put the bell pepper strips and the kept meant leaves.

Easy right? I don’t forget…delicious :D

 

Bon appetite!

Crock Pot Teriyaki Chicken

Crock Pot Teriyaki Chicken

 

I made this Teriyaki chicken a few times for dinner and it was very very good (if it wasn’t I wouldn’t post it here :) ).
I liked that the chicken is cooked at a slow cooker and not fried. I’ve only brown it very quickly on each side for a much better look :)
I also doubled the sauce quantity and use it for some stir fried vegetables, that I served as a side dish, beside the rice.
Everyone loved it so I definitely can add this recipe to the winners list and must do again list! :D

Enjoy!
