3 Things that work in the kitchen

1.  Inspiration and good reading

southern living

I used to love to flip through magazines and would buy them all the time.  I still love to look through them, but I rarely buy anymore.  This 50th Anniversary edition of Southern Living is too good to pass up though.

I especially enjoyed the timeline of recipes.  So fun to see when and how Jello wiggled into our lives, what we were doing with pineapple in the 70s and how French food inspired all kinds of dishes on southern tables.

And don’t miss the cakes.  They look amazing!

I found a recipe in the 80s section that inspired this…

2.  Crockpot Chicken Spaghetti

Crockpot Chicken Spaghetti

The other day my mom was telling me about this recipe that she found on Facebook.  I don’t think she called it Chicken Spaghetti though.  I happened to be thumbing through the Southern Living when we were talking and I told her I’d found the recipe in the magazine.  I’d also remembered that Pioneer Woman has a version of this on her site.

This is one of those recipes that can be made a million different ways, like any good basic recipe can.  It’s fun when people put their own spin on a classic like chili or mac & cheese or Chicken Spaghetti.  Some recipes include green chilies or tomatoes or other seasoning.

I kept things fairly simple with this one.  It all cooks in the crockpot, except the spaghetti which gets added in later.  It’s super easy and really good.  Look for the recipe on the blog soon.

3.  Cooking classes

I filled in as the cooking teacher this week at our high school homeschool electives program.  I taught two classes, each with about twenty students.  That’s a lot of energy!  We made green smoothies and migas.

A few of them had tried green smoothies before, but for most it was new.  The overall response was good.  They liked them and a few said they wanted to make them at home.

Migas my favorite egg dish

The Migas were also new to them.  I think they mostly liked those too.
