Food on Friday ~ Recipe Collections

I’m inspired by collections of recipes from around the world…..

From time to time the cooks / chefs whose blogs I follow and feature in Food on Friday, post recipe collections, and I think that’s so cool.  Usually these compendia of dishes have a theme, and that’s cool too.

Sometimes we get collections of other interesting cooking and kitchen related tips and ideas ~ and it’s worth remembering these when gift-giving time comes along.  Dependiong upon when you read this ~ there are only 60 more days until Christmas.

From Chungah at Damn Delicious we have a collection of her 15 best fall soups.  Chungah says these warming, delicious, and easy soups can be made on the stove top or crockpot.  They all look good to come home to on a old autumnal evening, but I especially like the look of this recipe for Greek lemon chicken soup ~ maybe because I’m not long returned from the Greek Island of Crete.

Some say avocados are very good for you.  And that there are lots of delicious avocado recipes to choose from.  All I know is that San Diego girl Averie Sunshine contributed to this Community Table collection; 6 creative, delicious ways to use avocados.  One of my favourite of Averie’s avocado recipes is for chicken avocado lack bean salad.  Doesn’t that look fabulous?

With Thanksgiving coming up for all you Americans I make no apologies for including friendsgiving 2018 with anthropologie, from Tieghan Gerard at Half Baked Harvest.  This is packed with tips on how to lay a perfect Thangsgiving Table, including recipes and drinks.  We don’t have Thanksgiving in England, whci is a bit of a shame…..   (If you didn’t know, Anthropologie is a store.)

From Expert Home Tips, these 24 cooking hacks you NEED to have in your life aren’t strictly recipe realated, but there are some damn cood idea’s here.  And you know what?  I really like #1 which is about juicing a lemon without a juicer.

Food on Friday ~ Fall Recipes

Fall, the year’s last and loveliest smile.

Except here in England we call it autumn, and in parts of America it’s more like high summer than fall.  In Orange County, Southern California, the temperature hit 100 degrees this week and the U.S. National Weather Service has an on-going Excessive Heat Warning for that part of the world.

Meanwhile, where I live in the North of England it’s about 55 degrees and distinctly autumnal, dull, grey and wet, so hot comfort food is a good idea for me.

First up this week is Joanne Schweitzer, from No Plate Like Home, who brings us this cheesy ham and turkey noodle casserole.  This is a brilliant dish if you have leftover ham or leftover turkey, or both….  you know what?  This is a brilliant dish whichever way you look at it.

If you are vegetarian, or perhaps vegan, then you will love the whole food recipes from Cookie + kate, (Cookie is the dog).  This week we have a hearty vegetable paella, which you should be able to make in an hour, but as most of that time is just leaving the dish alone in the oven, you can get on with other things while your paella is cooking.  (I’m pretty certain this is a vegan recipe.)

Kitchen Gadget lover Diane, from Dianes Kitchen, has what I think is a fairly quick and delicious recipe for a chicken gnocchi soup, and if you think this doesn’t look like it’s a warming dish for a blustery fall evening, then there’s no pleasing some people… hahahahaha

Chicken Gnocchi Soup

This is another great looking recipe for a really warming and hearty soup.  From Elise Bauer at Simply Recipes we have this one-pot chicken and rice soup.  (It should really be chicken, rice, and lots of vegetables.) I love one-pot dishes, and you should be able to make this fall recipe within the hour.

One-Pot Chicken and Rice Soup

One big thing about the fall, (autumn), is that it’s time to dig out your slow cooker / crockpot from the back of whatever cupboard it’s been in all summer long.  Tieghan, at Half Baked Harvest, has a brilliant vegetarian / vegan slow cooker dish; slow cooker potato and cauliflower curry.  This is perhaps a 5 hour cooking time dish, so you may want to have your slow cooker on while you are at work, (get a timer).

Slow Cooker Potato and Cauliflower Curry

In the autumn and winter I like roasted vegetables, (with whatever entree, or just with chopped bacon).  I have included this recipe from Dana at Minimalist Baker, just because I was so damn intrigued.  Dana says that these oil-free roasted vegetables totally work. I haven’t tried this recipe as yet, but I certainly will this weekend.  Obviously this is another vegan dish.

For those of us who like recipe collections, Andrea at Cooking with a Wallflower has her favorite fall inspired recipes 2017, including this delicious looking and sounding chicken pot pie with garlic cheddar biscuits.  My mouth is watering.
