It’s hard to beat the warmth and comfort of a creamy, golden chicken pot pie. I didn’t have this until I was a teen, and I was immediately hooked! This illustration shows a basic collection of ingredients, but there are so many things that can be added to it.
Peas with dumplings, the way my mom makes them are the best! That is my favorite dish in the whole world. It smells like childhood and tastes like happiness every time I see my family. We're several countries apart for more than six years now, and every time I visit them, this is the first dish, my mom cooks. It's been a year and a half since I have last seen them, and I can't wait to hug them and taste my favorite meal again.
Arborio rice has been easier for us to acquire during this time of quarantine versus white rice and/or brown rice. Because of this, we learned how to make Chicken Risotto! It was surprisingly simple with loads of patience and stirring endurance.
My grandmother, Anna, emigrated to NY from Russia in the early 1900’s.
She lived in a four-story walk up, in the Bronx. She always wore a white apron when she cooked. Grandma liked to wear simple dresses and costume jewlery. Her little white stove always had a pot on every burner. She made traditional chicken soup; borscht (A Russian beet soup); mushroom barley, and split pea soup. She cooked the split pea soup with marrowbones for extra flavor. It was a thick delicious soup, great to have on a cold day. Grandma always accompanied the soup with a few slices of rye or pumpernickel bread ad butter. I am sorry that she is not here to sample my vegetarian version.
My dog sits right under my baby boy's high chair and watches for falling food like a hawk. One time she emerged from under the table with mac and cheese noodles stuck all over her head which made my kids die with laughter. It's one of those sweet memories I'll never forget! This recipe is for the busy mom or dad who wants less time spent cooking and a bit more quality time with their kids some evenings. It's a fool proof dinner that your kids are sure to love and you will love the quick prep time!
