As a food blogger, I take pride in the fact that most recipes I share are “clean“. I know, you cannot tell by looking at us, but David and I are both health-conscious. We eat healthy, whole, and unprocessed foods, I guess we are just overindulged (sigh). You know we love to eat, but I cannot imagine how we would look if we’re indulging on a whole bunch of processed foods like we used to. Some may even say we are food snobs (gasp!).⁣

Make delicious homemade cream of chicken soup using a very simple homemade condensed soup recipe and you will never buy that canned goop again!⁣

This curry chicken broccoli casserole has bite-sized pieces of chicken and broccoli layered and topped with a creamy, curry-flavored sauce with a splash of lemon juice, then topped with extra-sharp cheddar cheese and then garnished with crunchy garlic-flavored croutons. There are some many levels of flavor to this casserole, there is no doubt that you’ll love it as much as we do.⁣

This recipe for sun-dried tomato goat cheese stuffed chicken is one of David‘s favorite dishes. He loves the tender juicy chicken thighs with tangy goat cheese, sun-dried tomatoes seasoned with herbs and spices stuffed under the crispy golden brown skin. He practically does a happy dance when he gets this chicken.⁣

Spicy chicken poblano stew with polenta puts a Mexican spin on Italian food. With only 389 calories per serving, this is a hearty weeknight dish. Shredded chicken is stewed with smoky poblanos and onions in a garlicky tomato sauce with adobo. Served over a creamy sweet porridge of polenta, which is a nice contrast of sweet and spicy!⁣

Need a recipe quick easy and basically cooks itself? Three words: Dijon. Pork. Chops.⁣

Dijon pork chops dredged in lemony Dijon mustard with herbs, roasted on a bed of cabbage in a rich broth. Try with roasted beets with apple cider vinegar!⁣

This is one of my favorite recipes to enjoy those roasted beets with apple cider vinegar. The vinegary twang from the beets really sets this recipe off. I hope you enjoy the combination as much as we do.⁣

Poblanos are my favorite chili pepper. I love them any way I can get them. Even for breakfast. What about you?⁣

Egg stuffed poblano pepper boats are a low-carb twist to the classic egg in a basket. Instead of cracking the egg inside a hole of a slice of bread the eggs are placed inside poblano peppers, cut into boats. They are the perfect mixture of mild spice, soft creamy eggs, and extra-sharp cheddar cheese.⁣

At only 345 calories a serving, I love that this Lemon chickpea orzo soup is so healthy and bursting with flavor. The broth is vibrant with the fresh aroma of lemon. With each silky spoonful, this soup is not only stunning but rich and delicious without a drop of cream in sight.⁣

This soup is not an all-day affair. It can be a delicious weeknight meal! In half an hour, this one-pot soup can be ready on the dinner table in no time.⁣

Amazing baked chicken wings do exist and they are healthier than the traditional deep-fried ones drenched in sodium filled sauces.

Instead, these wings are coated in a mouthwatering homemade dry rub made of brown sugar, chili powder, paprika, cumin, cayenne, garlic, and dry mustard. The beauty of this homemade dry rub is that the dry rub can be made to taste. You can make it as spicy, salty or as aromatic as you want. You have total control of the outcome!

Perfect for Sunday football!

I started this blog series six months ago in response to those who wanted to know more about the area we live in. We are close to many tourist attractions, so these reviews highlight the local food and beverages that can be found near them.⁣
I was a little hesitant about this series because I didn’t know how it would come across. I didn’t want this blog series to come across as two folks getting schnockered, and eating too much on Friday night. It’s more than that.⁣

Have you ever heard of “Eggs in a Basket”? Or perhaps you call it something else?⁣

I had never even heard of eggs in a basket before I met David Spivey. I classify him as the breakfast guru. Mainly because he can always eat, no matter what time of day. I will never forget the first time I had eggs in a basket. David made us some for supper one night during our “courting” days.⁣

Basically, an egg in a basket is bread with a hole cut into the center in which an egg is cracked into the center and cooked in a frying pan with a little butter. The hole is known as the “basket”.⁣

Making eggs in a basket is a quick and easy breakfast, these eggs are fried inside a hole cut into a slice of bread and topped with melted cheese.⁣

Mountain Kitchen Moments August 2019

When I started this blog in 2013, it was a form of diary to document what we did and most importantly what we ate. Sometimes I get so caught up in sharing our delicious food, I forget about all the stuff in between. So this month I am sharing a little recap of what happened the previous month in and outside of our mountain kitchen. ⁣

August wasn’t quite as busy as July, but we made some great memories!

Here’s a small preview of what’s been going on: https://www.themountainkitchen.com/august-mountain-moments-2019/ or click link in bio!
