pimentocheeseI posted this recipe for pimento cheese almost exactly a year ago, and of all the New Year’s recipes in the universe, this is the one I woke up thinking about. It is absolutely, positively, 100% addictive, and while it’s appropriate for any year-round gatherings, there’s something about a bowl of this stuff paired with Castelvetrano olives (speaking of addictive) and simple crackers that says New Year’s Eve to me.

Super simple to whip up—give it a try! Here’s a link to the step-by-step and printable recipes:

Have a happy, safe New Year’s Eve, everyone!

Cinnamon Sugar Tea Biscuits

Originally from: http://www.thegoodiegirl.ca/cinnamon-sugar-tea-biscuits/

This is something fun to do with tasty food and we wanted to repost it for you! Enjoy!

Cinnamon Sugar Tea Biscuits
These Cinnamon Sugar Tea Biscuits come together in a flash – I had less than 20 minutes before company was coming over when I decided to start the recipe and by the time the doorbell rang there were fresh biscuits on the counter! That’s what I mean by quick!

I used to love putting cinnamon and sugar on toast and that’s what these biscuits reminded me of – that sweet, buttery, cinnamon flavor on a light flaky biscuit! Best enjoyed warm. You won’t even need butter!

Cinnamon Sugar Tea Biscuits 2
I deviated from the original recipe with my second pan. Originally the recipe called for the oven to be 450 degrees, which had the biscuits coming out a little crispier on the edges than I prefer, so for my second pan I dropped the temperature down to 400 degrees and they were perfect. That’s what I’d recommend.

This recipe makes 12 medium sized biscuits.

This dough had a great consistency that you could certainly add nuts or raisins to if that was your thing – have fun and enjoy!

Cinnamon Sugar Tea Biscuits 3
Cinnamon Sugar Tea Biscuits

Adapted from Chocolate Chocolate and More

Ingredients

    3 Tablespoons sugar

    2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

    2 cups all-purpose flour

    3 teaspoons baking powder

    1 teaspoon salt

    6 Tablespoons butter, cold and cubed

    1 cup buttermilk or milk

    2 tablespoons butter, melted

Instructions

Combine cinnamon and sugar in a small bowl and set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt. 2 knives, cut butter into flour. Butter is done when it is small and pea-sized.

Stir in buttermilk, starting with 3/4 cup, just until dry ingredients are wet. Add rest of buttermilk if needed (I needed to use 1 full cup).  Do not overmix.

Flatten out the dough in the bowl and sprinkle 1/2 of cinnamon sugar evenly over top of biscuit dough. Fold dough over one time. Using a large spoon or large cookie scoop, scoop out dough and place 2 inches apart, on a lightly greased or parchment lined baking sheet.

Drizzle melted butter over the top of each biscuit and then generously sprinkle remaining cinnamon sugar on top.

Bake in a preheated 400 degree oven for 13 minutes, until golden brown or to desired doneness.

Butternut Squash and Quinoa Chicken Chili

This is something fun to do with yummy food and we wanted to post it for you! Eat well!

Butternut Squash and Quinoa Chicken Chili 2

I have a great hearty fall recipe for you.
My biggest question in sharing it is whether to call it a soup, a stew or a chili.

The original recipe I adapted called this a soup. Mine turned out to be more of a stew or chili because it was very hearty, chunky and not as juicy as I usually expect soup to be.
I think what happened was I, as usual, was very zealous with my portion of squash and chicken making it soak up a fair bit of the broth  to make it and more of a chunky stew or chili.

Any way you prefer it, this recipe is great, just know that the longer you let it simmer and the more chicken, squash and quinoa you use, the heartier and thicker in texture it will be.

I think I’ll call it a chicken chili.

Butternut Squash and Quinoa Chicken Chili 3

This chili has a great flavor – from the tomato and squash all the way to the quinoa and corn, every bite is tasty and has a little kick from the taco seasoning.  If you like it even spicier, try a few red chili flakes.

This is a perfect, healthy recipe for the winter season we’re getting into and best of all, it comes together quickly.

I took it as a lunch at work and got a few jealous eyes staring over their sandwiches as they asked about it – it’s great as leftovers and a great sandwich alternative any day!

Butternut Squash and Quinoa Chicken Chili 1
Butternut Squash and Quinoa Chicken Chili

Recipe adapted from Chelsea’s Messy Apron

Ingredients:

Rotisserie chicken – all white meat and some dark – about 1 ½ pounds total
½ cup quinoa or ancient grains
½ cup barley
1 medium butternut squash, cubed
1 can President’s Choice Blue Menu Six Bean Medley
1 can of corn
1 can diced tomatoes
1 teaspoon garlic powder
2 tablespoons of taco seasoning
5 cups chicken broth
Salt and pepper, to taste
1 tablespoon dried parsley
Optional: parmesan cheese and red chili flakes or hot sauce

Directions:

Carve up the rotisserie chicken, removing skin and cutting into bite sized chunks. Peel, seed, and chop the butternut squash into small bite-sized pieces (or buy pre-chopped butternut squash for an even faster prep). Rinse and drain the kidney beans and corn.

In a large pot, add in the chicken, quinoa, chopped squash, beans, corn, diced tomatoes, garlic, and taco seasoning.

Pour in the chicken broth and season to taste with salt, pepper and garlic powder.

Cover and simmer on low until the quinoa is cooked through and the squash is very tender. The longer it simmers the thicker it will be. Garnish with parmesan or red chili flakes, if desired.

No-Cook Blender Tomato Soup

Originally from: http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/seriouseats/recipes/~3/mVmdHX4S5BA/no-cook-blender-tomato-soup-recipe.html

Here’s something neat to do with delicious food so we wanted to repost it for you! Cheers!

No-Cook Blender Tomato Soup
You thought making tomato soup was easy? It’s even easier if you’ve got a high-powered blender. Just dump in the ingredients, turn it on, and let friction do the work for you. This soup gets a rich, creamy texture from the emulsion of olive oil and white bread, without a drop of dairy fat added to it.

Bite Sized Sugar Cookies

Sugar Cookies 4

Need a good cookie recipe for a Christmas tray? I have the perfect one!

I stumbled upon this cookie by accidentally using brown sugar when
my original recipe called for icing sugar – what a happy accident! (Have I mentioned how much I love brown sugar? – it is the best!)

As soon as I made the mistake, I knew there was no turning back and I’d have to hope they turned out. More than just ‘turning out’ they were a hit!Sugar Cookies

I haven’t had such rave reviews from a cookie recipe in a while – but this recipe was a favourite for many!

The brown sugar adds a great flavor and texture to the cookie.

At first glance, these cookies look like shortbreads, and you’d only know by tasting them that they’re sugar cookies.  They have a slight crispy outside edge with a soft chewy inside. They are not overly sweet, just right and with a hint of salt to finish it off. They’re bite sized, and they disappear quickly, but the bonus is that the recipe makes 48 small cookies per batch so they’re great for sharing and trays.

Sugar Cookies 2

These were so good, I don’t even know if I’ll bother to go back to try the original recipe! Try these this Christmas.

Bite Sized Sugar Cookies

Adapted from Amish Sugar Cookies by Cookie and Cups

Ingredients

    1 cup butter, room temperature

    1 cup vegetable oil

    1 cup granulated sugar

    1 cup brown sugar

    2 eggs

    2 tsp vanilla

    1 tsp baking soda

    1 tsp cream of tartar

    ½ tsp salt

    4½ cups flour

    *optional sprinkles to garnish

Instructions

Preheat oven to 350°

Line your baking sheets with parchment paper. Set aside.

In your mixing bowl cream together butter and both sugars until smooth. Next mix in the oil and beat in the eggs and vanilla. Add in baking soda, cream of tartar and salt. Turn mixer to low and add in flour, mixing until combined.

Using a small cookie scoop or teaspoon drop dough onto lined baking sheet. Add sprinkles now if desired. You may need to press them in to make them stick. Bake for 9 minutes until edges just start to golden.

Allow to cool for 3 minutes on baking sheet and transfer to wire rack to finish cooling.

Makes 48 small cookies.
