Chicken Pot Pie

My husband has a friend Gary who likes chicken pot pie, so I have been trying some different recipes.  One day when I was cleaning up my studio I found an older copy of Cook’s Illustrated magazine folded open to this recipe.  The magazine was dated February, 2006.  The intro said that it is a lot of work but worth it.  Since my friend Shara was coming that week, and I knew that she liked chicken pot pie, I thought I would give it a try.  Funny how things work out. 🙂

Tortellini Salad with Asparagus

With the start of summer I am always looking for recipes for good salads.

Pasta E Fagioli Soup

My husband and I both enjoy soup especially as the weather starts to get cooler.   When I had originally found this recipe it was to have been as good as Olive Gardens Pasta E Fagioli soup.  I love Olive Gardens pasta fagioli soup so I had to try this one. I have made a lot of tweeks to the recipe and it still does not taste like Olive Gardens, but I think it is a good hearty soup and easy to make.  I hope you enjoy it.
