I’m sorry little blog..

6 Jun

Now that the warm summer months have finally arrived I feel I have neglected my blog as well as the purpose of my blog: cooking, exploring the recipe world and learning new techniques.

We are not cooped up inside anymore, but rather out enjoying the warm weather on bike rides, BBQing, long walks, yard work……. this list goes on.  This weather change has really put a toll on my experimenting with new dishes and spending countless hours in the Kitchen. That is okay though, right? I can always come back to that…

For now we will enjoy the beautiful summer and be grateful for what God has given us today!

White Chicken Chili

1 Feb

Here is a very simple and very fast chili recipe that will for sure win the crowd over! At first sight (due to the color of the spinach) your guests may pass over it, but I guarantee that it will be gone at the end of the night! This would be great to make for your Super Bowl party.


  • White Northern Beans (big jar)
  • Jar of Salsa
  • Block of Pepper Jack Cheese
  • Frozen spinach
  • 1 can of Chicken Broth
  • 3 Chicken Breasts

I usually use a slow cooker and start it a few hours before the party, or you can combined it on the stove if you are running out of time.

What you are going to want to do it….
Start with boiling the chicken breasts until cooked.

White beans into slow cooker. (I will usually drain most of the juice from the jar)
Can of chicken broth soup
Jar of salsa ( You can decide which kind you like, I go with mild)
Add Spinach once thawed. (I usually use frozen spinach in the bag and squeeze extra water into the sink.)
Chop up Pepper Jack and sprinkle 1/2 the block into the slow cooker.
Once chicken is cooked shred it and add to cooker.
As it heats add more pepper jack.
Cook on high until ready to serve and turn heat to low.. Stir often.

I must tell you that this recipe has won several firsts place awards in Louisville cooking contests.

Let me know what you think!
