Hi! If you've found this page, you've obviously spent some time on our website, so thanks for visiting!
This is where I'll post different things I find interesting during the day (and possibly night). I figure it'll take me a few days to get the hang of this, so in the meantime, have a Sudoku puzzle or something else handy.
Feel free to follow me on Twitter and Facebook, or drop me a line, unless it's a complaint, in which those should be kept in your "drafts" folder. Just kidding. Sort of.
This is also the place I'll post odd links I run across, and things I simply didn't have time to do on the air. (This could be everything from the story behind the story, "news of the weird" or a link for a great online shoe sale. One never knows.)
This morning on the show, Forrest and I discussed my weekend project of cooking. I mentioned I made some White Bean Chicken Chili, and was asked for the recipe.
Here is the link.
It's important to note that I changed it a little - instead of chicken thighs, I took the quick way out and opened two cans of chopped chicken (the big ones like you get at Costco or Sam's in the 6-pack). I also used more chicken broth and left out the whipping cream. (I don't have anything against whipping cream, but I didn't have any on hand. And since my Kroger has decided to remodel and make every shopping trip a scavenger hunt that ends in frustration, I didn't feel that strongly about going to get any whipping cream. I'm sure it tastes wonderful with it, and let's hope you can get through YOUR neighborhood store without a GPS, a flashlight, and a team of Marines.)
I also added some chopped smoked sausage/bratwurst to the recipe. Yes, I'm aware it's not the same thing, but quite honestly, I simply can't remember which one it was. The label showed that it wasn't past it's date, so I used it. (Yes, that IS sometimes my criteria for adding things to recipes.)
It turned out pretty good, even with my "tweaks".
Let me know what you think, in case you hated it. (Remember, mama says if you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all. Unless it's funny.)
