Cooking Show: Recipes to Beat the Winter Blahs

Do you like winter weather?

The wind is howling and the snow is falling fast and furious as I type this. Depending on the source, we are expected to get anywhere from nine to eighteen inches of snow by the time this blizzard ends.

I've been cooking my share of soups, stews and crock pot meals throughout this winter...and I think it's about time to switch it up a bit. Recipes to end the February doldrums!  

And since Valentine's Day is coming up, there's a teensy bit of chocolate.  

Camera-hogging chocolate.


Okay, that's better.  We'll start at the beginning and work our way toward the chocolate finale.


Filled with chicken, mushrooms and spinach.  

Flavored with rosemary, nutmeg and lemon...the b├ęchamel, that is.  Did I mention that the reason it's white is because of the glorious b├ęchamel?  

Here's the printable recipe.


Because sometimes you just can't wait until dessert to get a chocolate fix!

I'm not exaggerating, it took me 3 minutes to throw this together.  

This has been part of our dinner menu at least twice a week for the past couple of months and I have been eating it for lunch at least three times a week.  I had it for lunch today.  I will have it for lunch tomorrow.

And then you can enjoy that teensy bit of chocolate that we were talking about...



Thanks to a brownie recipe that I found on the back of a package of Baker's chocolate, I have been making these brownies, using this recipe, for decades.  

Spreading raspberry jam onto the brownies and pouring a heavenly ganache on top takes them over the top!

Here's the printable recipe.
