Roasted Corn with Chipotle Mayo and Cotija

You HAVE to make this chipotle mayonnaise! It is good on so may things; use as a dip for chips, taquitos, fried calamari, on a burger, or this recipe-roasted corn!  I bet it’d be great in a sushi roll too! With the summer months coming up, this is a perfect side dish to consume at any BBQ! I’m making it again this weekend for Father’s Day! And you should too! Enjoy!

Corned Beef and Cabbage Egg Rolls with Two Dippin’ Sauces

Leftover corned beef and cabbage? Don’t know what to do with it? My make corned beef and cabbage egg rolls! I make two different dippin’ sauces to go with it; Guinness mustard and Guinness beer cheese sauce! Or if you’re like my husband, he likes to dip them in just plain yellow mustard (that’s how he eats his corned beef and cabbage).  It’s St. Patty’s day, so go ahead, cheat a little, and have a green beer while you’re at it!

Healthy Chicken Stock and Creamy Chicken, Broccoli and Rice Casserole

There’s nothing like comforting, delicious chicken stock…whether it’s in a soup, gravy or rice. It flavors and is the base of so many recipes that we often find ourselves always buying boxes and boxes from the store. This can start getting expensive and the healthy boxes of stock are typically pricier. Making your own stock at home allows you to store or freeze multiple quarts for future use and you can closely control the fat, nutrition and sodium content. And it’s easy, not much chopping or peeling, just waiting for those flavor to develop. =) Here’s my recipe for a healthy and tasty stock, which also includes strong disease-fighting ingredients like ginger and turmeric. You’ll definitely get a better bang with your buck with this recipe!

That’s not all folks! You’ll not only be getting a few quarts of stock from this recipe, but also tender and flavorful slow-cooked meat that you can store for future meals. My Creamy Chicken, Broccoli and Wild/Brown Rice Casserole is inspired by my Mama’s Chicken Divan, one of her staples at potlucks growing up. Love it! It’s simple, wholesome and can satisfy the whole family. Try it this week!
