Recent Five Star Recipes

Lots of good food at our house lately.

Tonight we had Spicy Chicken Shawarma -- it was SO good.  And easy, and healthy!  My kids tend to like pita pocket sandwiches, and I tend to not need a pound of mayo on it.  This one has a tangy yogurt sauce and it was delish.  P even LOVED it.

My kids LOVE this Cheddar Chowder.  My mom gave it to me a long time ago, I think she found it in her local paper.  You basically make a vegetable soup and then mix a white sauce into it.  And, because I love my reader so, I'm even gonna type it up for you.  I couldn't find a similar recipe online.

Cheddar Chowder
Serves 4-6
2 cups boiling water
2 cups diced potatoes
1/2 cup diced carrots
1/2 cup diced celery
1 teaspoon onion slat
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 cup melted butter
1/4 cup flour
2 cups milk
2 cups grated cheddar cheese
1/2 cup cubed ham or cooked, crumbled bacon (I usually do ham)

Cover and simmer 10 minutes: the water, potatoes, carrots, cleery, onion salt and pepper, do not drain.

While simmering vegetables make a white sauce of melted butter, flour and milk.  Combine and cook in microwave for 90 seconds on high.  Stir with wire wisk.  Repeat 2-3 times until sauce thickens.
Add cheese: Stir until melted.  Add ham, stir white sauce undrained vegetables, head but do not boil

Both boys gave it 10 stars.

And tonight we re-did the ol' Apple Nachos from previously in the fall.  I made it using the Rachael Ray Honey Carmel, and it was delicious as always.  I had to step away.

I hope you have found some good recipes that you'll post on your blogs too!
