Default 11/4 What's Cooking?

So - I am experimenting today.

I found a recipe for cheeseburger soup on pinterest, and it immediately screamed EAT ME! this morning since it is gray, cold and dreary. Add in that it's been kind of a tough week and it just sounded like ultimate comfort food.

However, I have no potatoes. And no canned broth.

SO! Time to get creative! I am going to use Betty Crocker cheesy scalloped potatoes as the potatoes - just mix in and cook in the crock with the soup. For the canned broth, I could have used bouillon, however, I had saved the chicken "broth" from my garlicky/ketchup/soy sticky chicken dish the other night and I thought, why not! It was so so delicious, and not very teriyaki-ish or honey-ish, just super flavorful with lots of spices. Plus, Ketchup in it = win!

So I browned up onions, ground beef, peppers, shredded carrots and squash puree. Added into the chicken "broth" in the crockpot, with some added water and that is going to simmer away most of the day. Later this afternoon I will add in potatoes. And about an hour or so before serving, I will make a roux with cheese mix from potatoes + flour + butter, add in milk, and add that all into the soup!

Hoping my hodge podge comes out good, it sure smells good enough already

What's cooking @ your house?

We are having my first attempt at homemade chicken noodle soup with homemade whole wheat rolls. We will either have apple crisp or fudge for dessert......I think it will be fudge. I am in a chocolate frame of mind today.

MMM Necie, Check these out!
{Flourless} Fudge Chocolate Chip Cookies

http://chocolateandcarrots.com/2011/...e-chip-cookies

Ingredients
  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 2/3 cup unsweetened Hershey’s dark chocolate cocoa powder
  • 1/8 tsp. salt
  • 2 to 4 large egg whites, at room temperature
  • 1 Tbsp. pure vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups 60% cacao chocolate chips
How-To
  1. Preheat the oven to 350F.
  2. Set aside two baking sheets with silpat mats or parchment paper sprayed with cooking spray.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar with cocoa powder and salt.
  4. Whisk in the vanilla and egg whites starting with just two.
  5. Beat just until the batter is moistened. You’re looking for a brownie-like, thick and fudgy batter consistency. If it seems too thick, add another egg white– then a 4th one if it still seems too thick.
  6. Stir in the chocolate chips.
  7. Scoop the batter by the tablespoon full onto the prepared baking sheets. Leave enough space between each cookie for them to spread.
  8. Bake for 12-14 minutes, until the tops are glossy and lightly cracked.
  9. Let the cookies cool completely on the baking sheet and store in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
Yield: 30 cookies

Taco Soup, cheesebread (again) and cupcakes for dessert-but I'd really like to have Jenny's cheeseburger soup and cookies!
