Chicken Pot Pie
Chicken Pot Pie is the ultimate crowd pleasing comfort food!
Pinched Pan Pizza
Chef Cary Kemp shares his Pinched Pan Pizza recipe for the home cook from Pizzeria 22 in West Seattle. Use classic pepperoni & cheese, or any of your favorite toppings (I love fresh tomatoes and basil added after baking). This pizza dough and pizza sauce work great for a traditional pizza baked on a pizza stone too.
Chicken Enchiladas – Salsa Verde Style
Serve with black beans and greens. Garnish with cilantro and Cotija cheese. These enchiladas are a crowd pleaser!
Baked Ziti with a Twist
Baked Ziti is a savory one-pot dish that everyone loves. We use fusilli pasta and ground lamb for a tasty twist on this Italian classic.
Turkey Noodle Soup
Turkey Noodle Soup is a great way to use the whole bird and make another meal. Chicken carcass can also be used in this recipe.
Boneless Skinless Fried Chicken
Use heavy pan or cast iron skillet for best results. This recipe makes perfect, juicy chicken every time!
Sweet and Savory Mac & Cheese
This Mac & Cheese pairs sweet carrots and savory herbs with rich aged cheeses to make a wonderful main or side dish!
Perfect Pecan Pie
Pecan Pie is a favorite at our house. This one is perfectly simple, and richly delicious every time!

Rum and butter make this Banana Bread mega moist on the inside and buttery crisp on the outside!
