One Pot Chicken and Corn Chili

 This simple yet delicious chili is cooked in one pot and comes together in a snap. Perfect for a cold winter night, this recipe will have dinner on the table in 30 minutes!

 I've always been a big fan of food network television and have been watching it for over 20 yrs now. It is one of the things that helped me become the cook I am today and it has helped me think outside the box, when it comes to eating and cooking. Sixteen years ago, when I was on bed rest pregnant with my son, the television became my best friend. I would watch it for hours and discovered a cute little cook named Rachael Ray. I loved her 30 minute meal show, since I knew that once I had kids, my life would turn into a pile of dirty diapers and bottles, LOL. I would watch her show religiously. Every night at 4pm, the TV would be tuned to the Food Network and I would watch Rachael in action. It got to the point that when my son was learning to walk and talk, he would come racing into the room at the first sound of the 30 Minute Meal theme song. Achel Yay, as he called her, was the one show he would settle down to watch with Mommy.

When Rachel Ray made the jump to daytime television, she also started publishing her Every Day with Rachel Ray magazine. Whenever I have a few extra dollars, I grab her magazine to enjoy with a cup of tea. I love her eclectic dishes and love the ease of her recipes. This chicken chili recipe is loosely based on one of her recipes, from a magazine I read years ago. I altered it to suit our tastes, as my kids aren't too crazy about spicy foods. My daughter is not a fan of beans, so this chili is right up her alley. 

This chili is like no other. I loved how flavorful and easy it is to make. I used baby red potatoes and the butteriness of them, mixed with the spicy broth was heaven. The kids loved this version way better than the chili I usually make and I enjoyed eating this for lunches, days prior to making it. Why is it that dishes, like chili, always takes better the next day?? Just like many of Rachael's recipes, this was quick, easy and a perfect way to get dinner on the table quickly on a cold winter day.

No Yeast Old Fashion Cinnamon Rolls

 These delicious cinnamon sticky rolls have been in my family for over 40 yrs. No yeast is required, so you can whip up a batch of these in no time. Still tender, sticky sweet and delicious! Ever since I can remember Mom would make these as a special treat. It wasn't too often, but every once in a while, we'd come home to these no yeast cinnamon rolls, as an after school snack. Growing up, this is what I thought cinnamon rolls were. I wasn't aware that there was a yeast version of cinnamon rolls. As much as I LOVE the yeast version, this no yeast version seems to make an appearance more frequently here at home.  Since there is no yeast in the dough, it does not need to rise for 30 minutes before being rolled out and baked. When I worked in the retirement home the residents were always excited when I made these cinnamon rolls. They said it reminded them of their childhood. It was amazing seeing how happy a simple recipe could make them. I don't make these very often and

Black Forest Roll Cake

Light and fluffy cherry and whipped cream filling is rolled in an airy sponge cake. 13 years ago, I made a dinner that I was totally proud of. Not only did it taste wonderful, it looks fantastic too. I was so proud of myself that I took a photo, which I wanted to share with my friends and family. Only I didn't know how I could share it with everyone, at the same time. Then a thought came to me- a blog!!!  I've always been a foodie. While growing up, I'd often watch talk shows, just to see the cooking segments. I'd sit with a pen and paper, quickly jotting down ingredients and directions, to hopefully recreate recipes at home. I still remember a beet salad I begged my mom to let me make, asking her to buy raspberry wine vinegar for the dressing. It turned out to be something neither of us enjoyed, and up until a few years ago, Mom still had the vinegar in her cupboard.  I first started my first blog, Hun... What's  for Dinner?, as a way to share recipes with my famil

Easy Balsamic Glazed Salmon

 This is a healthy, easy and impressive way to prepare salmon. The glaze is simple, yet flavourful, and this will quickly become your favourite salmon recipe. Salmon is a reddish fish, that is tender yet firm and it is a favourite amongst many, due to it's buttery flavour. It is low in saturated fat and high in protein and is also a great source of vitamin B12 and Potassium. These are only some of the reasons salmon has been deemed a super food. When I worked at the natural food market, I cooked quite a bit of salmon over those 3 years. It was a staple on our hot buffet and one of our most popular items. Our patrons preferred it prepared simply with dill, lemon, salt and pepper. While this is one of my favourite ways to prepare salmon, sometimes you need a little variety. The balsamic vinegar becomes wonderfully sweet as it bakes in the oven. The Dijon adds a slight tartness, to balance out the sweetness. With only a few healthy ingredients, this recipe is deliciously simple and wo
