Cooking and entertaining has always been a big part of my life, whether I'm cooking dinner for family, friends, or a fund raiser for the grandkids or celebrating holidays, food is always a huge part of my world.
I enjoy people, and love to bless others with my hospitality. Thank you for visiting my kitchen today, and I hope you find something good to eat!
Hi everyone I'm back from visiting and caring for my brother in Ojai, Ca and he is mending and doing well. Thank you all for your prayers for my brother and sister-in-law. The weather was great and cool there and one day my Aunt Perk and I slipped off to the beach for fried calamari and oysters. Nothing but nothing beats fresh fish!
I wanted to give you a recipe that goes with cool weather, Chris will love this, so I'm sending along my Potato Sausage Soup. This is so easy and simple and really great for a week night supper. It's very similar to the Olive Garden's famous Toscana soup. Give it a try...simply delicious.
Ingredients are: 5 sweet Italian sausage links 5 slices of bacon, cut into pieces 5 medium baking potatoes, cut into large cubes 1 Cup diced white onions 2 large cloves of minced garlic 1 and 1/2 boxes of chicken stock 1 Cup heavy cream 3 Cups fresh spinach salt and pepper to taste
Remove the sausage from the casing and brown in a skillet breaking it up until cooked through. Place the onions and bacon in a large saucepan and cook until the onions are tender. Add the garlic and cook 1 minute longer. Add the chicken broth and potatoes and simmer for 15 minutes. Add the sausage, spinach, cream and continue to simmer another 10 to 15 minutes.
Add some crusty french bread and voila there is your simply Italian dinner! Enjoy!
