Chicken-n-Rice Stuffed Peppers

Stuffed Pepper 1

Here’s a little number I made up on the go for a delicious and healthy weeknight supper. So you’ve seen Italian stuffed peppers, well what would an “American” version look like? Something like this. A creamy filling of chicken and rice crowned with a gooey dollop of white American cheese. It’s definitely a different combination of flavors, but they come together beautifully.

Cheez-It Chicken

cheez-it chicken 1

As a southern girl, it is my right – nay, my duty – to use copious amounts of cheese in my cooking. For me, this is not a problem. At all. Not only is my favorite food macaroni and cheese, but I really am a very big fan of cheese all-around, as you can tell from the sheer number of posts on this blog that involve cheese.

My Ultimate Comfort Food

Macaroni and Cheese 1

I have gotten a lot of requests over the past several weeks for a rockin’ recipe for macaroni and cheese. In face, some of you who know me in *real life* have expressed your shock and concern over the lack of a mac ‘n’ cheese recipe here on VV. This reaction is understandable, considering that the truth is . . . . macaroni and cheese is my #1 favorite food of all time!

Olive Canapés

Confession: I don’t like olives. At all. Not even in a martini. I love a good olive oil, but I just can’t get excited about the pungent flavor of an actual olive.
That said, this is one of the only dishes that I absolutely love, which features olives. These tasty, elegant canapés are absolutely delicious – crispy and rich with melted cheese, and the hint of curry powder gives it a subtle zing. Yeah, yeah, and the olives are good too, I guess!

This is from my sweet Auntie Gladys! What could be more delicious and sophisticated than a ripe olive canapé and a glass of wine? But beware – once you taste just one of these, you will be addicted for life!
