Broccoli Brie Soup

This soup is so rich and delicious we could have eaten several bowls and then some. On top of that, it's a soup that is incredibly simple to make and will shame any broccoli cheese soup you've ever had.

Easy Asian Orange Sauce Recipe

One of our favorite uses of an orange is making orange sauce. We love it because it's versatile and flavorful and can be used on chicken, fish, tofu, even duck... not to mention it's incredibly easy to make! There are many versions of orange sauce, but this one is our favorite!

Chess Pie

The power of a sweet, crunchy, creamy chess pie was one I discovered this holiday season while I was spending time with family outside of Nashville, TN this year. Everyone was shocked to learn I had never had it before, 'Is this a normal pie?' I asked?

Boston Butt and Coleslaw

My Brother Brad has become incredibly skilled at smoking meats over the past several years which has led to many new traditions here in the Chapman family. One is for a Boston Butt which, "is the American name for a cut of pork that comes from the upper part of the shoulder from the front leg and may contain the blade bone." The other recipe is for a simple coleslaw that is must for any BBQ'ed or Smoked meat dish.

Vegetable African Curry with Curried Rice

Sparkling Vanilla Cup Cakes with Candied Pecans

We love everything sparkly and sweet during the Holiday season. So we decided to add these dee-lightful vanilla cupcakes to our menu this year. Stuffed with a candied pecan (see the recipe for candied pecans below), topped with cream cheese frosting, and dashed with light blue sprinkles, these cupcakes have a surprise in every bite.

Coconut Pecan and Cranberry Dressing

Thank you to Florida based reader Julie Fuller, we now have this resolution to boring stuffing and boring cranberry sauce for the Holidays. Her family mixes the two together and adds a little coconut from some island flare!

Apple and Cranberry Super Salad

One of our favorite ingredients that we often think gets overlooked during the Holidays is fruit. That's why we are so thankful when we get recipes like this Apple and Cranberry Salad sent to us by Julie Fuller from Melbourne, FL . Not only is it delicious, healthy, and a great meal by itself, it's also customizable and uses many of the leftover ingredients from holiday dinners. 

Sabrina's Whipping Cream Biscuits

Sabrina, one our beloved guests from Season 1 of Real Food Real Kitchens, taught us how to make these two ingredient biscuits stating that these are, 'the most simple biscuits you will ever make'.

Stuffed Mozzarella and Spinach Pizza Bites

Anything pizza related we LOVE! It's a quick, simple and delicious dish that can be ordered in or made at home. It's a quick weeknight meal and especially during this Holiday season, it's an easy and fast way to feed everyone at the end of a long day of shopping, visiting family or sprucing up around the house. These stuffed mozzarella and spinach pizza bites are easy to make! 

Sparkling Vanilla Sugar Cookies

Sugar cookies are one of the most simple yet deliciously addictive cookies, especially during the Holidays. The whiteness of snow and the warm, sugary, vanilla scent in the air come to mind when I think of these classic cookies; this recipe captures all of these senses in one tiny cookie.
