Kelly’s Chicken Pumpkin Chili

I love fall. I love cold crispy weather. And, I love pumpkin. But I’m not too crazy about sweet pumpkin dishes or even about sweet “sweet” potato dishes either. So I decided to make a savory pumpkin recipe. A couple of nights ago, my family pitched in together to make chili on a cold frosty Nebraska night. Tonight it is a cold chilly Texas night and chili seemed to be on order too. Hubby had two servings (unusual for him) and said, “you have to remember how to make this, it’s good.” So, here it is…

Zesty Quinoa Side dish

Quinoa is bland tasting to me, and I thought a can of soup might perk it up. The quinoa absorbed the spicyness of this soup though. Next time I might also add some chopped fresh Jalapeno to it.

Vinegar Based Red Potato Salad

A lighter delicious alternative to a heavy mayonnaise based potato salad. This salad retains the potato peel and all it's goodness. It's also a great base to experiment and customize for your own vinegrette potato salad recipe.

Couscous with Toasted Pine Nuts and Carrots

Plain couscous made with water isn't too appetizing, but mix it up with some veggies and chicken and you've got a delicious meal.

Low Glycemic - Chicken with Poblano Sauce

I"m taking a 12 week class to help kick start my metabolism. All these foods in this recipe are on the 'allowed' list for this section of the class which is about low glycemic eating.

Port Wine Braised Cabbage

This recipe makes a lot, it's a great recipe to keep and eat or for having company. Your guests won't know this is good for them. I revised an great recipe from Grady Spears A Cowboy int eh Kitchen Cookbook so it would be diabetic friendly for my aunt.

Kelly's Poblano Ginger Chicken Rice

Spicy Sweet medley of asian and southwest flavors.

Kelly's Spinach and Garbanzos

This was a big time kitchen experiment success! I had unexpected company show up, my dad. My Dad detests garbanzo beans in all their forms. BUT HE LOVED THIS!
And asked me to make it again for him before he left.

Ground Sirloin Taco Meat

Quickie way to make taco meat

Quick and Zesty Tuna Salad with Jalapenos

Great quick tuna recipe for a wrap or sandwich, or just for dipping carrot slices or chips into. The Bread and Butter pickled jalapenos mix (no pickles in it, it's just how the jalapenos are done) is awesome stuff! Buy it if you see it.

Successful Experiments in the Kitchen
I like the challenge of my husband saying we have nothing to eat, and then proving him wrong with something healthy and delicious. When he says we don't have food in the house, I know we have at least 4 weeks without having to repeat a meal. These are recipes I've invented to prove him wrong.
