My friend, Bambi, is brilliant at taking seemingly non-compatible ingredients and throwing them together to create some of the most amazing dinner dishes I’ve ever had. Since I’ve been staying with her I’ve had the pleasure of experiencing dishes I’d never before imagined. So I decided to start taking photos of her food dishes and writing down the recipe as she goes.

This is the first of these recipes. As it’s for chili, it’s rather simple in comparison to some of her other dishes. However, it’s pretty amazing nonetheless. I hope you enjoy Bambi’s white chicken chili recipe as much as I do!

White Chicken Chili Recipe

Ingredients:

1 – 1 1/2 lbs. chicken breast tenders
1 large yellow onion, coarsely chopped
5 cloves garlic, finely chopped
2 jalapenos, seeds removed/coarsely chopped
1 can diced tomatoes
1 ripe tomato, cubed
2 cups chicken broth
1 bunch cilantro, chopped
3 cans of beans (black, kidney, pinto, garbanzo, etc.)
1 teaspoon cumin powder
1 Tablespoon + 1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon white pepper
black pepper to taste
1 1/2 teaspoons seasoning salt
3 teaspoons dried oregano
1/3 Cup quinoa

Directions:

Begin by sauteing the chicken breast tenders in olive oil on the stove top until cooked through. Once cooked, remove the chicken from your pan and shred the chicken using a knife and fork.

How to Make White Chicken Chili

Return the chicken to the pan and stir in the garlic, onions and jalapeno. Saute the ingredients together, then add the entire contents of the pan to a large pot.

Add fresh and canned tomatoes, chicken broth, cilantro and beans to the pot with the chicken. We used a combination of beans so be sure to choose your favorites. (Bambi likes to add a can of garbanzo beans to her chili for extra texture.)

Now add the cumin powder, chili powder, salt, pepper, seasoning salt and oregano. Stir the ingredients into the pot of chili and allow to simmer for ten minutes.

Finally, add the quinoa to the pot of chili both for added texture and to soak up the excess liquid. Allow to simmer an additional 30-40 minutes and your white chicken chili is ready to eat!

Green Salad Recipe with Avocado + Pistachios

by Kate + Adam Reinard

Ingredients:

3 scallions
1 small cucumber
1 green pear
2 stalks celery
1 avocado
1/4 cup pistachios
1/4 cup fresh basil
1 cup shelled edamame beans
juice of 1-2 limes
2 Tablespoons olive oil
salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

Chop the scallions, cucumber, pear, celery, avocado, pistachios and basil and combine in a large bowl.

Mix in the edamame bean then dress the salad with the juice from the lime(s), olive oil and salt and pepper to taste.

Enjoy! Leftovers will keep in the refrigerator until the next day.

A side note on this one. This green salad recipe is absolutely divine as is. However, I would use 1/2 cup of pistachios the next time around to ensure I get a pistachio in every bite as the nuts add a fantastic flavor zing to this dish.

You must try this delicious Black Bean Dip Recipe for your next party! It's so simple to make. Just mix it all together the night before, refrigerate overnight and serve the next day!

Easy Homemade Doughnut Recipe & Other Tasty Treats

I love food. I also love doughnuts. Unfortunately, our local Krispy Kreme – who made the best donuts ever! – has shut down due a fire. They claim that they are planning to re-open in a new location – hopefully closer to downtown – fingers crossed – but have not yet found a new location. In the meantime, folks in Roanoke are writing parody news articles as well as freaking out a little. Rather than succumb to the chaos of a doughnut-less society, however, you can make your own even if – like me – you aren’t the best cook. While they probably won’t compare to the glory that Krispy Kreme holds in most Roanokers’ hearts, they do make for a tasty and fun afternoon with the kids.

Easy Homemade Doughnut Recipe via Cake Spy - Make Donuts From Canned Biscuit Dough - Great Family ProjectCakespy.com, a deliciously tempting blog that covers everything cakes, cupcakes and pies galore as well as explains why cupcakes are nutritious – I mean the sugar gives you energy, right? – offers up an easy recipe and tutorial for how to make doughnuts using refrigerated biscuits in a can (pictured above.) These fried delights are ready in 15 minutes or less and can be topped with any combination of icing, sugar or sprinkles you can imagine. Plus it’s the perfect project to do with stir crazy kids on an afternoon while they’re waiting for the rain to clear out. (Although the sugar could possible mean more chaos if the rain decides to hang on.)

Homemade Coconut Panna Cotta Recipe via Camille StylesIf you’re looking for a taste that’s still sweet but with a lot less sugar, then definitely try out Jess Simpson’s recipe for making Homemade Healthy Coconut Panna Cotta on Camille Styles Blog (pictured above.) It’s made with coconut milk, yogurt, honey and some delicious spices like nutmeg and ginger. I’m also crushing over the Summer Crush Drink Recipe made with gin, peaches, fresh basil, lime, Lillet, club soda and agave syrup.
