A stand mixer bread experiment that actually worked! It did everything it was supposed to, rose high, tastes great and looks like the picture. I, for one, am currently sitting here in total shock.

The Best Tomato Soup

The Best Tomato Soup

Serves: 4

Time: 45 min

Freezes: Yes

Reheats: Yes

Kid Friendly Tasks: Tomato Chooser

I love this soup. It’s so not Campbell’s. Is that bad to say? It’s not that I don’t enjoy the classic tomato soup from Campbell’s if the mood is right, but this is so much better. The simplicity is the same, yet the tomato taste is so much more vibrant (and the amount of salt involved is way, way less).

Serves: 4

Time: 1 hr(ish)

Freezes: Yes

Reheats: Yes

Kid Friendly Tasks: Cheese Taster

Yeah it’s corn glut time! Okay so strictly speaking it’s way past corn glut time as I write this. The leaves are falling from the trees after all. I’m nothing if not untimely with my recipes, but this is still excellent with frozen corn.

Grilled Chicken

Serves: 4

Time: 10

Freezes: Yes

Reheats: Yes

Kid Friendly Tasks: Select Sauces

How simple can you get right? It’s chicken. You slice it. Fry it and serve it. For this there’s a recipe? Yeah I know, and you’re probably right, but remember the goal of the blog is to come up with dinner ideas and some nights the most basic thing is exactly what you need. Plus, because it’s so boring it’s one of my kids favor dinners. They, I’m sure, think of this as naked chicken nugget night (although I do make breaded, though not deep fried, chicken nuggets as well). Perhaps I should have titled the post, “one more vehicle for barbeque sauce and ketchup”?
