On Monday, Denise & I made the cookie dough and the icing. Tuesday morning we rolled out the dough & baked. Once cool we glazed each cookie. We made a piping bag filled with glaze for each of the girls so that the decorations would adhere. After decorating they snacked on grapes and beef hot dogs sprouted out like an octopus. So many giggles echoed thru the house. Intentionally delightful....

In a dutch oven add all of the above. When it comes to a boil, reduce heat and let it simmer for 20 minutes. Puree with an emulsifier/hand blender. Juice an entire lemon in the soup. Serve.
So simple. I will be serving the soup with a scoop of steamed rice...perhaps Basmati maybe sticky rice.

I have been a lover of cooking since I was a child. As the seventh of eight children I can remember being as young as four helping set the table as well as having a chair propped up next to the sink to help wash dishes. My Mother cooked every meal…breakfast, lunch and dinner…my five sisters and I learned the skill and love of cooking early on.
The love of cooking is the only way of life I have known.

Add all ingredients except masa & cayene to cooked ground beef. Simmer for 30 minutes. Mix masa and water together, add to mixture. Add cayenne. Continue simmering for 20 more minutes. Add more salt if needed.
Optional: To the finished product I add 2 cups of beans. Any delicious bean works.
This is our home favorite frito pie chili. This recipe took me a few years to finally perfect it.
We top our Frito Pie's with fresh onion, cheddar cheese, tomatoes and jalapenos. Yum!

Heat fat/oil in dutch oven, high heat and brown the meat in 3 batches. Set aside. In same dutch oven, saute the onions until lightly golden. Add garlic stir, return the meat to dutch oven along w/all juices that have accumulated. Add broth, potatoes, salt cover and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 1 1/2 hours, potatoes will break up and thicken the stew. Add green chile, tomatillo salsa and bell pepper cook 25 more minutes. Add cilantro and serve.
Top with fresh onion, fresh cilantro, dallop of sour cream & crunchy tortilla chips.
Place first 4 ingredients on baking sheet toss with oil, salt and pepper. Broil till all sides are slightly charred.
In a sauce pan add water and cilantro, bring to boil. Add broiled ingredients to sauce pan (oil too) and puree or chunk with emulsifier.
My husband was the main inspiration for this recipe today....yesterday he said, "we have not had chile in ages" (I think/know he meant the traditional red one but my palate craved the green...I hope he loves it).
