Hot Sauce - from Grilled Veggies

My brother-in-law Marcus made some great hot sauce a couple of days after Thanksgiving..... Man was it good!  He also had some great chicken and rice boudin which most of us had never eaten before (he got it in Louisiana).  We all acted like we hadn't even just had a huge Thanksgiving feast two days before, it was sooo good!  The day before that some of us had gone to Canton, Texas for some shopping and when we came home he had Gumbo and Etoufee waiting for us...  again we ate like we hadn't had a big meal in days!  So much flavor in everything!

The next week I made this hot sauce in the freezing cold! I just kept thinking about how good it would be and being cooped up in the house there was a lot of cooking going on!  But still I wanted hot sauce!!  In Texas we had an ice storm but it didn't keep me away from  using the grill outside!  I make Hot Sauce a lot (link in blue of my original sauce), as good as the one I make is I love the grill taste for something different!  It reminds me of Pappasito's hot sauce and I love love theirs.  Marcus' is actually better!  Our whole family agreed and we all love Pappasito's!

You eat this hot sauce hot as in temperature! Might sound weird but it's really good!

I made this again a few weeks later and stored the leftovers in the fridge.  I ate some of the hot sauce cold out of the fridge and then I reheated some in the microwave.  I liked it both ways!

Place onions, tomatoes and jalapenos on the hot grill
This is what they look like when I took them off the grill, the peeling on the tomatoes comes right off.
I put this in a pitcher and used a hand held blender that you can place right in the pitcher.  You can also use a regular blender or food processer.


5 to 6 tomatoes 
3 to 4 jalapenos (or more if you like it hot, hot)!
1 onion sliced in thick slices (kept together)
Lawry's Garlic salt with the green lid
Black Pepper
Place tomatoes, jalapenos and onions on the hot grill.  Grill until the onions start to get a black marking then take off, same with jalapenos.  The Tomatoes will become soft and the skin will start peeling off, they are ready then..  The jalapenos you just throw with the black skin (after removing the stem but the tomatoes you peel, it will come right off after they get hot.
Put all in either a pitcher or blender then just pulse 4 or 5 times....don't over process or it will get pasty.   Season with garlic salt and black pepper!

Chicken and Rice Soup

 It’s 14 degrees here in Texas!!  Soup is in order for today!!  I love a good chicken and rice soup!!  I make this quite a bit especially when it’s cold outside! You can always switch out the rice for noodles, just prepare the noodles as per the package then add to soup.

I make the rice first in a separate pan, sometimes I use the bags of rice and other times I just cook some rice.  Then I add it to the soup, the longer it's in the soup the more tender it gets!

I use chicken base or  Knorr's chicken broth cubes (shown below) to add heartiness to the soup....
I didn't get a picture of the chicken boiling but all you do is add enough water to cover the chicken and cook until it's done!!  

Sauté'  onion, celery and carrots in pan then add garlic (whole)

This is what I use if I don't have chicken base (I get chicken base at Sam's Club)

I start out with the broth from the chicken I cook then I add can chicken broth
Hearty and delicious
 Chicken and Rice Soup

1 whole chicken or 3 chicken breast with bone (bone in gives more flavor)
1/4 cup chopped onions
1/2 cup chopped or sliced celery
1 cup chopped carrots
3 garlic cloves (add in soup whole then pull them out in the end)
1 or 2 cans chicken broth ( depending on how much broth you get from the chicken you cook)
3 bags of cooked rice  (3 cups of rice)
Chicken base (1 Tbsp.) or 1 Knorr's chicken bouillon
Lawry's Garlic Salt (green lid)
Black Pepper

Boil chicken till done about 20 to 30 minutes

In a stock pot melt 1 Tbsp of butter then add onions, celery and carrots, sauté until tender. Sprinkle some Lawry's Garlic Salt and black pepper and add broth from the chicken.
 Shred Chicken or chop it,  then add the chicken and cooked rice to the above.   Add Knorr's chicken bouillon or chicken base  along with Lawry’s garlic salt to taste. Let cook for about 30 minutes to  45 mins on med- high heat.  Add extra chicken broth as needed. 

The longer you cook the soup the softer the veggies and the more tender the rice.

Popcorn in a lunch bag

My new favorite way to make popcorn and its soooooo easy and fast!! 

I needed a way to have 16 kids make their own popcorn which would take up time but would also taste good!  I had seen how you could make popcorn in a lunch sack but had never tried it.  I found  out how it works then tried it the night before I had the kids do it (last minute lucy).  Oh my, it reminded me of Orville Redenbacher's Natural line of microwave popcorn .  Problem is Redenbacher  got me hooked with the salt and pepper then all the sudden I can't find it in the store anymore!! This is my replacement!!! I have used oil and I have used butter and like them both equally.

It's been a couple of months since my first bag and now I have showed people all over!

 I will say my microwave with the glass plate takes about 2 1/2 minutes and the ones without the plate need to be watched more closely.  You might have to test your microwave to see the best time would be for yours.   You also might burn a bag or two but it's cheap and once you figure out how long it takes in your microwave your are good to go for life!

I also attached a couple of popcorn recipes... one is caramel popcorn, great recipe and the other is candy corn popcorn (yes, you actually melt candy corn).  You can also make marshmallow popcorn by just melting some butter add marshmallows then once they are melted must pour onto popcorn!  Delicious!

This is fun for kids and just in time for the Holidays with kids out of school and hungry all the time!!!

* I got some bags that started coming apart in the microwave!!!  They held together mostly but you could see them coming apart at sides close to the bottom of the bag .... I had to stop the microwave so that there wasn't popcorn everywhere.  I got about 1/2 to 3/4 of a bag of popped popcorn out of them though. Most don't but if yours does just get some new ones... I have found the white ones work pretty good but I had a pack of brown ones that did great too... I think I just got a pack brown ones that weren't glued well (or whatever they do to them).

In a bowl add 1/3 c to 1/2 cup popcorn kernels, you can  use either 1 tsp oil or butter.  I actually melted a 1 tsp of butter then added the rest of the stick which you can see here.. I added salt and pepper but you can just add salt if your not into salt and pepper popcorn.
Dump the bowl into your sack then fold down twice, turn microwave on for 2 1/2 minutes, listen closely.
Ready... you can see some kernels in the bag which can be reused for the  next bag or tossed out.  I wanted to make sure it didn't burn so I pulled it out.

                                                             Seriously delicious!!!


Microwave Popcorn

1/3 to ½ cup popcorn kernels

1 tsp vegetable oil

½ tsp salt or salt to taste

1 paper lunch sack

  1. In a cup or small bowl, mix together the unpopped popcorn and oil. Pour the coated corn into a brown paper lunch sack, and sprinkle in the salt. Fold the top of the bag over twice to seal in the ingredients.
  2. Cook in the microwave at full power for 2 1/2 to 3 minutes, or until you hear pauses of about 2 seconds between pops. Carefully open the bag to avoid steam, and pour into a serving bowl.
                                   Caramel Popcorn
1 cup butter
2 cups brown sugar
½ cup corn syrup
1 tsp salt
½ tsp baking soda
1 tsp vanilla
5 quarts popcorn popped (there are 4 cups in 1 quart)
1.      Preheat oven to 250 degrees F (95 degrees C). Place popcorn in a very large bowl.
2.     In a medium saucepan over medium heat, melt butter. Stir in brown sugar, corn syrup and salt. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Boil without stirring 4 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in soda and vanilla. Pour in a thin stream over popcorn, stirring to coat.
3.     Place in two large shallow baking dishes and bake in preheated oven, stirring every 15 minutes, for 1 hour. Remove from oven and let cool completely before breaking into pieces.
    Candy Corn Popcorn
    12 cups popped popcorn
    10 Tbsp butter
    1 bag candy corn
    ¼ cup brown sugar
    1 tsp vanilla
    On the stove, melt 10 tablespoons of butter, 1 bag of candy corn, 1/4 cup of brown sugar, and a big splash of vanilla—stirring just until melted and right before boiling. Spray your wooden spoon with Pam and pour melted mixture evenly over your popped popcorn. You need a big fix and mix Tupperware bowl for this–it works great! Stir to coat.
    Next lay it out evenly on parchment paper to dry for 30 minutes (I love it like this) but for crispy popcorn bake in oven at 250 degrees for 35 mins.

Cinnamon Roll Cake

Several months ago one of the ladies in our Creating Heartstrings group made this dessert!  We cook dinner for the families staying at the Ronald McDonald House in Dallas every other month.  It is always fun to see what people make for dessert.  We have to make everything there from the main course to the dessert, they have a wonderful commercial kitchen! 

One of our ladies, Jan made this dessert and it was a hit, everyone wanted the recipe!

mix everything together except the butter
Stir in melted butter and pour into a greased pan
make the topping mixture then drop by the spoonful it onto the batter and swirl with a knife
this is what it should look like after you make the in a 350 degree oven and bake for 28-32 mintues
make the glaze
pour glaze over warm cake

looks like cinnamon rolls!
goes well with coffee :)

Soup....Glorious Soup!

This weather has got me making soup!  I thought I would share links to some of the soups I have on my blog so they would just be a click away!

Tomato Basil Soup is one of my favorites for sure!
Goes so well with a grill cheese sandwich! I also make Seasoned Crackers often when I make this soup. 

Chicken Tortilla Soup is another favorite!  The picture I am going to attach isn't the best but this is a great soup! 

Taco Soup with Cheese Tortellini is a great soup!  I don't have any pictures of this soup but I have made it several times!  I got this recipe from my friend Shari in Minnesota!  I do not like beans and most taco soups has beans, but not this one!!!  I need to make this again so I can get some pictures!
Italian Chicken Soup makes a lot of soup!!!  I got this recipe from The Pioneer Women's website several years ago.  This is a great pasta soup with a chicken broth base splashed with some heavy cream.  Great flavor and goes along way.
La Madeleine's A L'Oignon Gratinee aka French Onion Soup, if you like French Onion Soup this is a great recipe!  I don't have any pictures of this recipe but have made is several times!  The key to the recipe lies in the slow cooking of the onions.. really!  Once they caramelize they flavor the soup so nicely! 
I am going to post Creamy Tortilla Soup this week!  I thought I had it on here but I do not!!  It is another favorite of mine!!
I can't post soup without post my favorite Cornbread , I found this on pinterest last year and WOW, it's really good!  I don't ever eat cornbread the next day but this cornbread I do!!!

Tomato Basil Soup

Today I made one of my favorite soups, Tomato Basil!  I found this recipes 6 to 8 years ago, it truly is one of my favorites!  I added this to the blog a couple of years ago but I didn't have pictures so I thought I would add it again.

This is La Madelines "copy" recipe, the only thing I different is about 4 years ago I started using half and half instead of heavy whipping cream.  It cuts out a lot of fat and now I actually like it better!  You can  make it either way with heavy cream or half and half.

I also make Seasoned Crackers (click for recipe) when I make this soup, with my seasoned crackers I don't even bake but you would think I did!  They are delicious and keep in an airtight container for 4 to 6 weeks!  Actually one time I forgot about them and they were still good several months later! 

This goes well with a grill cheese sandwich or a Hot Turkey or Ham Sandwich on a Croissant which is also on my blog.  Tonight I had a hot turkey on croissant sandwich with my soup!

Also, I double this recipe a lot!  Earlier today I doubled it and was able to make 10 -12oz portions.  I made it for dinner since I still had tomato juice left and because I didn't get any from the first batch I made! 

Combine tomatoes, juice & chicken broth in saucepan; and simmer for 30 minutes.

Add basil then puree with hand held blender or you can put in a regular blender
add butter, season with salt & pepper then add whip cream (or I use half and half)
keep on low until you are ready to eat!

 I got this cup and the tablecloth when I was in France.  Perfect to eat soup in.....reminds me of being in France!


La Madeline’s Tomato Basil soup


4 cups (8to10) can tomatoes in juice

2 cups of tomato juice

2 cups of chicken broth

12 to 14 washed fresh basil leaves (or the one in the tube which you get by the fresh basil)

1 cup of heavy cream  (or I use half and half instead)

1/4 lb unsalted butter

Salt to taste

¼ t cracked black pepper

Combine tomatoes, juice & stock in saucepan; and simmer for 30 minutes.

Puree, along with the basil leaves in small batches in blender, food processor (or better yet, one of those handy hand held Blenders right in the cooking pan (that is what I do)).

Return to saucepan & add cream & butter, while stirring over low heat.

Garnish with basil leaves and serve with favorite bread

Nutella Hot Chocolate

 Today here in Texas we are having a nice cool day, for us anyway (low 70's)! I wanted something warm to drink after lunch so I quickly thought hmmmm hot chocolate!  I made this for the first time about a month ago and as I was drinking it, thought this reminds me of drinking liquid chocolate!!!

 I don't even remember where I found this recipe, I was searching for Nutella Hot Chocolate and found many variations.  The first recipe listed  is for about 4 to 6 people and the one below that is for 1.  If you need a chocolate fix, this is it!!!  Next time I will make some homemade whip cream.  The first time I made this I added marshmallows!

You can add less chocolate chips or add more milk to tone down the rich chocolate if you would like!! 

Nutella Hot Chocolate
Serves 4-6

2 cups whole milk
2 cups half-and-half
10 ounces bittersweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup Nutella
marshmallows or whip cream for garnishing

Combine the milk and half-and-half in a saucepan and bring to a low boil. Remove from the heat and add the chocolate and Nutella. Whisk until the chocolate is melted and the ingredients are thoroughly combined. Cover to keep hot.  Pour the hot chocolate into small coffee mugs, top with the marshmallows or whip cream, serve hot.
2nd Recipe for 1
1 cup milk
2 Tbsp Nutella
1/2 tsp cocoa
In a small saucepan, melt Nutella on low heat.
Add milk and cocoa powder.
Stir frequently until desired temperature is reached

Roast Chicken in an Hour!

I was watching a show on one of the food stations and they showed a chef who worked at a Hotel making a whole chicken in the oven at 450 degrees!  I thought what?  I cook chicken and beef on low temperatures for hours to insure tenderness and he just cooked this for an hour?  It was one of their #1 items on the menu.

I thought about that recipe for a few days then decided to go and buy a whole chicken.  I didn't look up any recipe I just did what he and that was basically put a chicken in the oven at 450 degrees for an hour!  Now I did wash my chicken take out the stuff in the middle, pat it dry then rubbed it with butter and seasoned it with salt and pepper.  I think he might have added some herbs and etc to the middle but I wanted a plain ole chicken.

He cooked it in a skillet (that can go in oven) so I put mine in a iron skillet then put it in my oven that was preheated to 450 degrees.  Like he did I basted it every 15 minutes.  It seemed to go by fast maybe because every 15 minutes I was basting it.

Because you baste it when you pull it out of the oven it has this beautiful brown color!  I set it out to let it rest for 10 minutes then cut in to it.  Tender juicy and done! 

What a great way to cook a whole chicken fast and it stay juicy and tender!

place your chicken in your skillet then rub with butter, you can dot it with butter also like I did then season it with salt and pepper.
this is either after 15 or 30 minutes when I took it out to baste it
after an hour in the's done!
This one I made on Monday in my cooking class..... it was really beautiful!
1 whole chicken, washed cleaned (all the insides stuff taken out) and patted dry
3 Tbsp butter soften
Salt and Pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 450 degrees

In a oven ready skillet place your chicken inside then rub with butter then season with salt and pepper.  You can also add a few dots of butter like I did above if you would like.

Place in preheated oven then every 15 minutes take out the chicken and baste it which is just basically taking a spoon or a baster and getting the juices from the bottom to the top of the chicken. This will insure a beautiful golden brown chicken!

After an hour your chicken should be done!  Let the chicken rest for 10 minutes so the juices can redistribute back into the chicken.

I know we all have made tostadas and they are oh so very easy to make but last week I made two versions and really enjoyed every bite of both (not both in one day, lol)!  I had some chicken that I had baked left over and some hamburger meat also. The first day I shredded the chicken then chopped up some fresh (not bagged) red leaf lettuce, chopped tomatoes and sliced red onion.  I then drizzled some  Creamy Jalapeno Ranch Dip   I had in the fridge that I made the week before, only I just thinned  it a tiny bit with milk so I could drizzle it on like salad dressing.  I then made some  Hot Sauce  (click on both links for  jalapeno dip and hot sauce for recipes) and guacamole so all I needed was the tostada.

I live in a town where there is a HEB grocery store!  Years ago I was a diehard Tom Thumb and Kroger girl!  I also bought my produce at a place called Cox Farms because it is soooo fresh and was close to my house.  When I moved to Waxahachie my friends couldn't believe I didn't go to the beloved HEB that everyone loved so much and that I continue to drive 30 miles to the 'other' stores. My first impression of HEB was that they pushed their products so the brand names cost so much more and I am someone who buys the same brands consistently.  I did though start going in for their tortillas because they are THE best!  They make them right there in the store and they are so fresh, if you don't eat them in 2 days they go bad so we through them in the freezer on day 2.  When Target added their grocery section several years ago to the one here all the sudden the prices at HEB dropped!  When I would go get the tortillas I would see the FRESH produce so I started buying tortillas and produce until one day I noticed most of their things are priced identical to Wal Mart!  So now HEB is my #1 store and the others are down the list.  I still go to the others and Cox Farm is one of my favorite place, it's just nice to find a store local with great produce.

I just added a little oil then my flour tortilla and cooked it o both sides
For this one I just added chicken, lettuce, tomatoes, onion and two kinds of cheese with the jalapeno ranch dressing.
The next day I used ground beef then added guacamole
lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, hot sauce and jalapeno dip
I also shred my own cheese ALWAYS ;)
I mad an extra one and added cinnamon and sugar

Egg in the Hole

I was watching Pioneer Women a while back and she was making "egg in the hole's".  They a quite simple and so easy to make but taste sooooo good!  Basically all you do it make a hole in your bread by using a biscuit cutter, glass or anything you have that can be used to make a hole.  Then you add butter to a skillet add the bread with the hole and crack an egg then put it in the middle of the hole.  Add the circle you took out and place it to the skillet next to the bread, make sure there is enough butter. Season it with salt and pepper on both sides.  Flip the bread, you might need to add more butter then cook it to your liking (the egg).

My Grandmother Harvey used to make toast in the skillet and I loved it.  This brought me back to my Grandmother's toast with an egg added to it!

I have used wheat bread, Orowheat Oat Nut bread and Texas Toast... I love them all but I'll have to say I like the Texas Toast best!

melt butter and add bread then add the egg
Flip the bread and cook the way you like it and until the bread is browned
I like mine mostly done with a little bit of the yolk runny.

Bishop Arts District - Dallas, Tx - Oak Cliff

                                                     Bishop Arts District

The funny thing about the Bishop Arts District is that I have been eating in this area for years, like 20 years at least! People would say..... you're going to Oak Cliff to eat?  There are lots of good restaurants in Oak Cliff and not all are in the Bishop Arts District. We used to eat at several places like Vito's which was Italian, not sure why it closed because they had some great food!   Then Bishop Grill had some really good comfort food which was to die for!  You went through a line similar to a cafeteria but the dessert was first and not last like at Luby's!  They had glorious pie which I made sure to save room for!  The people who owned Bishop Grill retired and didn't want to sell their restaurant because of the great reputation they had and didn't want to loose.  Below under Emporium Pies I wrote a little more on Bishop Grill, I sure miss that place.  Gloria's used to be down the street from where it is today and it looked as if it had been an old Gas Station or something like that.  It's now down the road in a new renovated old Firehouse Station with much more space!

Since going for years at night after Vito's and Bishop Grill closed I didn't go back for a few years.  Then about 4 years ago I started having lunch with friends at like Hattie's which I posted about awhile back but I will probably copy and paste it to this since it's in the Bishop Arts area.  Anyway during the day it's quaint and fun with lots of cute shops but when I went in April it was super fun and hip.  The streets are lit up with stringed lights and it's crowded!  At lunch it's full but in the evening/weekend it's a hip hopping place. 

                                                 Jonathon's Oakcliff

I first heard of Jonathon's from a friend and then later saw it in D Magazine as having one of the best Brunch in Dallas.  I went for the first time  in April for my Birthday.  We went for dinner and I believe all of us but one got the Fried chicken and Waffles. My friend Yanelley got chicken salad which had chicken salad, romaine lettuce, blueberries and almonds, it was good too.  The Fried chicken and waffles is a MUST!  The waffle is fluffy and the chicken to me reminded me of Chick-fil-a's chicken which was perfect with the waffle.  It comes with gravy and maple syrup, I dipped my chicken in the gravy and the waffle in the syrup at first then started combing it all...... it was delicious! I believe it comes with the gravy on top but I got mine on the side and dipped my chicken in it..  Jonathon's Oakcliff is located at 1111 N Beckley Ave, Dallas, TX  75203 (about 1/4 mile from the Bishop Arts District)- phone is 214-946-2221.  Their website is which has their menu located on it so you glance at it before you go.  Jonathon's is just around the corner from the now famous Bishop Arts District in Oak Cliff.

Look at all the chicken!!  This was my dinner and I took half of it home!
Emporium Pies
I also kept hearing about this place called Emporium Pies which is located in the Bishop Arts District in Oak Cliff.  It happens to be located in a little house that one of my favorite restaurants, Bishop Grill first started in.  Bishop Grill would have a line out the door and you would have to wait for a table to open before you could order.  They eventually moved across the street to a building they renovated then later they closed because they retired!  Sad day.  They didn't want to sell the restaurant because they didn't want to loose their reputation.  Well Emporium Pies is in that same little house and guess what, it has a line out of the door!!  I guess when they say location, location, location  they are right because it brought me back to standing in line at Bishop Grill.  Emporium Pies website is and I believe they change up their pies seasonally.  When I went I got their Strawberry-Rhubarb Pie and it was delicious!  The crust was flaky and tender and the strawberry-Rhubarb was perfect then to top it off I had it alamode (ice cream)!  Oh and a cup of coffee, I was in heaven! 
Wish I had a piece right now!
Gloria's has Salvadorian-Latin food and Tex Mex.  The original restaurant used to be down the way from the Bishop Arts District and now it's right there in the mist of it. They renovated an old Fire Station and turned it into to a Gloria's.  There is now 15 Gloria's, all but 3 are in the DFW area, two are in Austin and there is now one in Houston.  They bring out their famous black beans when they bring out the chips and hot sauce.  I'm not a bean person but everyone seems to love them!  Gloria's website is  Their location in Rockwell has a beautiful view of Lake Ray Hubbard.  The address to the location in the Bishop Arts District is 600 N Bishop Ave, Dallas, Tx 75208- 214-942-1831.

The new location that opened in April in the Bishop Arts District
Hattie's is located in the Bishop Arts District this place has some great food! Address is 418 Bishop Avenue Dallas, Texas 75208.  The whole Bishop Arts area has just boomed!    I get the Buttermilk Fried Chicken Salad oh it's so good!  They have a great burger too along with a really great menu!  The website has their menu  After lunch or dinner head over to Café Brazil for a great cup of coffee!
Very quaint restaurant with some good food!
Café Brazil
Café Brazil is a great place to sit and drink a cup of coffee with friends because they are open late and in several locations they are open24 hours all week and some 24 hours on the weekends. If you are like my friends and I we are always getting kicked out of places because they close at 10:00 or 11:00 so we end up talking in the parking lot! Having a Café Brazil close is great!  I almost always get breakfast at Café Brazil and they serve all day!  Their website is the address to the one in the Bishop Arts District is 611 N Bishop Ave, Dallas TX - 214-946-7927.  This location is open till 11:00 p.m. during the week and 12:30 a.m. on the weekends.
                                                   Location in the Bishop Arts District
Hunky's is a hamburger joint which happens to be in the building that Bishop Grill used to be in.  They have good hamburgers, sandwiches, milk shakes, ice cream and more!  I have only eaten here once or twice and it's been several years ago.  When you walk in you feel like you are back in the 50's it's very quaint and their prices as I remember are good.  Hunky's website is 321 N Bishop Ave, Dallas, TX  75208. They have another location off Oak Lawn in Dallas.
                                                         Bishop Arts Location
 There are other great restaurants like Oddfellows, Tillman's Roadhouse, Eno's Pizza Tavern and more but I haven't been to any of those yet, I have heard they are all really good.  Here is a website with other restaurants in the area
