Pear Crisp

Sunday, October 13, 2019
Pear Crisp Recipe is easy to make dessert recipe! A favorite for Thanksgiving or Christmas with a scoop of vanilla ice cream! So easy to make from Serena Bakes Simply From Scratch.

Have you ever had or made Pear Crisp?

It's so good, and I think a rather neglected fall dessert. It's rather close to my favorite Apple Crisp Recipe with a few changes. 

I cut back on the sugar with the pears, since pears are so sweet, and I still added some lemon juice. It helps prevent the pears from browning, and also brightens the flavor of the filling.

Pear Crisp has all the flavors of Fall with nutmeg, ginger, vanilla and of course plenty of cinnamon in both the filling and crumbly crisp topping.

A hearty scoop of vanilla ice cream or maybe even Homemade Caramel Swirl Ice Cream and a drizzle of Caramel Sauce if I'm really looking to dress it up, and you're guaranteed to be in dessert heaven.

Here's how I make one of our favorite fall dessert recipes Pear Crisp.

Chicken Enchilada Soup

Friday, October 4, 2019
Chicken Enchilada Soup recipe is like the Enchilada Soup Recipe from Chilis. It's one of my favorite soups, naturally gluten free, easy to make in  under 30 minutes and so good from Serena Bakes Simply From Scratch.

I've been craving Enchilada's lately so I decided to make Chicken Enchilada Soup, a healthier alternative to traditional Enchiladas.

Two of my all-time favorite things just happen to be Enchiladas and Soup. So after ordering Chili's Enchilada Soup one time I was hooked! Enchilada Soup is now one of my top 5 favorite soup recipes!

It's the perfect comfort food since it has all the things that make Enchiladas great, but with a healthier spin.

I used Breast Fillets and black beans for plenty of protein. 

Masa Harina is used to thicken the soup so it's naturally gluten free. It's easy to make in under 30 minutes, and since the cheese is added as a garnish it's easy to control quantity. 

All the ingredients for the soup are kitchen staples in my house making this an easy dinner on a cold day.

Masa Harina is used to thicken the soup so it's naturally gluten free. Plus it's easy to make in under 30 minutes, and since the cheese is added as a garnish it's easy to control quantity. 

Copycat Chilis Enchilada Soup recipe will quickly become an easy weeknight comfort food favorite.

Baked Yams or Sweet Potatoes

Friday, September 27, 2019

We make Baked Yams or Baked Sweet Potatoes at least once a week lately. 

Even in the summer time we made Grilled Sweet Potatoes frequently the same way as baked by wrapping them in foil and cooking them using off set heat for about 35-40 minutes on our charcoal grill.

Technically what they call Jewel or Garnet Yams at the grocery store are actually Sweet Potatoes at least in the Pacific Northwest. But if I  sent Colt to the store to buy sweet potatoes he would pick up what they have signed Sweet Potatoes and not the brownish red jewel toned skin with orange interior signed yams. I've had several people take the time to email me or comment on my Mashed Yams recipe technically are sweet potatoes. So I thought I would save any confusion with an explanation. 

We actually picked up a few of the white interior sweet potatoes on accident a few weeks back and will be trying to pick those up more often for our kids or when we are in the mood for more of a regular baked potato. They are similar enough to a baked potato I think I'll be able to pass them off to the kids. My friend Jean had said her son doesn't mind the white interior sweet potatoes because it's similar enough to a potato, so we'll see if it works on my kids too.

I do love the sweetness of these orange fleshed sweet potatoes. Just a little pat of butter on top with some black pepper maybe a little chives or green onions and I'm in heaven. These are usually a healthier option for me because I use less butter and additional add ons like I do for baked potatoes so I end up consuming less calories.
