Turkey Pumpkin Chili

I knew with all the rain headed our way, I’d be craving a warming soup, or stew for dinner last night. I dug this oldie but goodie out of my recipe box.

It had been several years since I made it, and one thing I remembered is that while it had potential, it was also a bit bland. Since then, I’ve gained some experience in the kitchen so I tweaked it to make it more flavorful. I hope you enjoy this unique version of chili!

Mediterranean Lamb (or Beef) Burgers

Ready for the grill

Ready for the grill

I got a few pounds of ground lamb in my Marin Sun Farms CSA share and I was inspired to make lamb burgers. I used one of my favorite spice blends, Zaatar. It’s used in many Middle Eastern dishes and has a great flavor. I’m proud to say that I created this recipe all by myself. It’s my first original recipe! That’s kind of a big deal for me, since I’m good at following recipes but typically don’t create them. Maybe times are a changin’ and I might just end up being a creative “kitchenista” 🙂

Here it is, my first original recipe!

Easy Cuban Hash

This is a delicious, quick and easy, one skillet recipe. I typically get a pound of ground pork each month from my meat CSA. I’ve never been a big fan of pork, except for bacon, I love bacon! The CSA has encouraged me to try new things and broke the monotony of eating the same type of meat. If you don’t eat pork, you can easily use ground turkey instead. I found the original recipe at Pork Be Inspired. It was a little boring for my taste, so here’s my version. As always, try to use organic ingredients 🙂Easy Cuban Hash

Thai Coconut Shrimp (or Chicken) Soup

It’s unseasonably cool here today, so I’m making soup for dinner. This soup is a warming, protein filled dish, that’s easy to make. I originally found this recipe at All Recipes.com and I changed some things to make it real food friendly.

I thought the original recipe had to much broth, so I reduced the amount. As always, try to use as many organic ingredients as possible!

This soup takes about an hour to start to finish. Even though there’s just two of us, I usually make the full recipe because I like it that much. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
