Perfect Potato Soup with Watercress & Prosciutto

Perfect Potato Soup with Watercress & Prosciutto

My husband’s family are potato farmers out here in Mattawa, Washington, and because I can get as many as I like for free, I know I should cook with them much more often! I always have a huge box sitting in my pantry waiting to be used, so on the days when I don’t have something planned for dinner, I always seem to turn to this delicious potato soup recipe! It’s so flavorful and healthy by itself, but just like a baked potato, you can add so many different garnishes and toppings to it, that it’s sure to please everyone: watercress and prosciutto are my fave’s, my hubby loves spicy hot sauce, and the kids love cheese! I think that’s why this has become one of my favorite go-to family recipes, because it can be adapted so easily to please everyone! What toppings would you add?

My New Fave Dinner Rolls

My New Fave Dinner Rolls

My little guy is the pickiest eater on the planet, but if there is one thing he LOVES and is guaranteed to eat {besides mac n cheese and PB&J’s} It’s warm, soft dinner rolls. I don’t make them as often as I should, but the other day I found a new recipe that is so fool-proof, quick and easy, that I thought i’d pass it along and post it up, because I will turn to it EVERY TIME! <3 it!

Cupcake Sugar Cookies

Cupcake Sugar Cookies

I made these cute cupcake cookies over valentines day for my sons friends, and thought i’d post a few pics! I know this isn’t a very helpful post, since Valentines is already over :-( But Cupcake Cookies are cute for any occasion! I’ve had a few people ask me how I decorate with royal icing, and they’d be shocked to know how much EASIER and faster it is than regular frosting, and I think it looks and tastes better too! This are my absolute FAVOURITE recipes for sugar cookies and royal icing, so even if you don’t make cupcake cookies, hopefully this post will still be of use to you! Enjoy!

The BEST Raspberry Jam & 5 Gourmet Desserts to Make with it

The BEST Raspberry Jam & 5 Gourmet Desserts to Make with it

My mother in law makes the BEST raspberry jam EVER! It’s so good that the entire family won’t eat any other kind, which is kind of a problem when you have a husband that always tells you: “You should make the kind my Mum makes!”  I kind of despise making jam, so I procrastinated it, then one day my mother in law surprised us with enough jam to fill half our freezer, and last us the year… {or at least half a year with the way we use it!}

Chicken Tikka Masala Risotto!

Chicken Tikka Masala Risotto!

A little while ago I got brave and made a Pad Thai Risotto which turned out to be one of my favorite dishes of all time! It sounded so crazy, I was actually really reluctant to try it, but when I did, it completely blew me away! So then recently, I thought: “why not try a Chicken Tikka Masala Risotto?” I love the flavors of Chicken Tikka Masala {it’s also one of my most favorite dishes on earth!} And I love the texture of a thick, creamy, dreamy risotto–so combined, it had to be a win-win! And it really was! I think I love this dish even more than the pad thai risotto! I know there are a lot of ingredients, but it’s so simple to make, and it’s SO worth it!
