haha... we are on a roll with Jamie, here. I did this one yesterday, and it was very scrummy!

I actually didn't have any fresh thyme, so I just stuffed the chicken with the lemon, garlic, and fresh rosemary. It was delicious and the potatoes were soooo tasty!  :)

Very nice Jewlz!!! I'm making pizza another night and tortilla soup tonight from the America cookbook. :)  We are on a Jamie roll for sure!!!!

I'll post results from each sometime this week.  However I have to say I'm overly excited about making pizza from scratch (including the dough).  I'm a pizza fiend!!!!!

Made this Tortilla Soup last night and it was incredible!!!! I love love love Mexican food after living in SoCal for years.  It's not totally authentic since it does have carrots in it.  However the flavor was just amazing.  It was super easy to make too.  (Had with it some chicken tacos from leftover Beer Butt Chicken. )

If looking at the picture doesn't make your mouth water, I don't know what will.  :P

I made these tonight and they were sooooo good.  I'm horrible at cooking and I somehow did not mess them up!

http://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/12804/melty-mushroom-wellingtons

I didn't have Stilton or gigantic mushrooms, so I used sliced up regular mushrooms and some brie I had on hand.  I also made some gravy since they seemed like they would be kind of dry on their own.  Only cook them for 20 minutes though.  The recipe says 40 but I think that's if you freeze them and cook them from frozen.

Those look sooooo yummy.  Definitely putting that on the list for next week's meals.  Hubby and I are huge fans of Stilton, who am I kidding, we're fans of any cheese. Haha.

Ingredients
Gingerbread cookies:
1 (17.5 ounce) package sugar cookie mix
1 egg
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup melted butter
2 tablespoons pumpkin pie spice
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 cup dark molasses
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Royal Icing
2 large egg whites or 5 tablespoons meringue powder
2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice or 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 cups confectioners' sugar, sifted
Sanding sugar, if desired
For Gingerbread Cookies:
Directions
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Cookies: In a large mixing bowl, blend all ingredients together and chill for up to 1 hour. Roll dough out on floured board about 1/8-inch thick. Cut desired shapes with cookie cutters and place onto sheet pan. Bake for 8 minutes in preheated oven. Let cool to room temperature before decorating.

For Royal Icing:
With a hand mixer, beat the egg whites with the lemon juice or extract until frothy. Add the sifted powdered sugar and beat on low speed until combined, smooth, and shiny. Turn to high and beat approximately 5 minutes until stiff and glossy. Transfer to a pasty bag or zip top bag to pipe onto cookies. Decorate, if desired.

I need a recipe for Bread & Butter Pudding please! One that doesn't call for cream if possible. I looked at a few online but I have never made one (or tasted one) so always have a hard time choosing between them when its new to me. My hubby has requested this pudding and I am clueless  ???

I made these chocolate and hazelnut bars by Rachel Allen for coffee hour at church today.  They disappeared in an instant and I got raves for them. 

Go on and try them, you know you want to! Go on, go on, go on, go on, go on! [/Mrs Doyle]

You can't go wrong with Delia: http://www.deliaonline.com/recipes/type-of-dish/sweet/rich-bread-and-butter-pudding.html

She uses a combination of milk and a little double cream, but I don't see why you couldn't use all milk. Also, if your husband likes a very basic traditional bread and butter pudding, you can leave out the peel. I like to do it with marmalade in it, but that isn't to everyone's taste.

Speaking of Delia (who I love), I am making her easy peasy parsley sauce, which is so freakin' rich and delicious and easy to make it's insane. It's great over any kind of baked fish (though cod is the tradition - tonight I am using haddock).

I never have mace, so I just skip it altogether without subbing anything else for it, and it's still so tasty.

Thank you! I'll give it a try  :)

We just spoke of the Thai soup Tom Ka Gai in another post and I wanted to know if any of you know where I can get my hands on a good recipe?! I absolutely adore this soup but I’m not quite sure how to make it, maybe some one can help as it’s the best soup ever! :)
