Enchiladas Suizas

From Jenny Also Cooks

Fighting against food boredom, experimenting with vegetarian meat substitutes can provide hours of fun. I came across this recipe for Enchiladas Suizas, and used Quorn cutlets for the chicken. I also cut the amount of cheese and cream at least in half as it seemed excessive. They were delicious and flavorful, and the most time-consuming part was cooking the peppers and onions!

Soupe A L'Oignon

From Jenny Also Cooks

After making my first souffle, I was inspired to make more recipes from Mastering the Art of French Cooking, by Julia Child of course. I've had Better than Bouillon, No Beef flavor in my pantry for a while, just begging to be used in onion soup. Making Julia's version, it is Soupe L'Oignon, which she says you need to allow 2 and a half hours to make. Because onions can't be rushed, you know. First you have to thinly slice them (and cry), then saute them in butter and oil, then carmelize them, then simmer them in stock and wine. The end result is delicious, I just wish I'd put the time into making a cheesy crouton for better presentation.

Hungry Girl

From Jenny Also Cooks

I recently stumbled across Hungry Girl, and get her daily e-mail newsletter with recipes and healthy food products. I've been making a few here and there. My absolute favorite was the crunchy sassy chinese slaw but I haven't taken a picture of it yet. This is Dan Good Chili and Cheesy-Good Cornbread Muffins. I guess with all the baking I do, its smart to eat some healthier food from time to time. :)
