Easy Chicken and Rice Pot Pie

This chicken pot pie recipe came out of a need to use up the leftover rice I had in my fridge, so I purchased a store-bought rotisserie chicken and whipped up an easy white sauce.

The result is this delicious and easy chicken recipe that nobody would ever guess came from leftovers. Especially if you take a minute to add those fun little carrot and pea cut-outs to adorn the top pie crust. Adorable!!

Healthy Creamy Chicken Corn Chowder with Bacon

This recipe is also a great way to sneak extra veggies into you kids without them knowing. The creaminess doesn’t come from cream at all; it comes from cooked and pureed cauliflower. They’ll never even suspect you pulled one over on them. Score one for mom! After all, it’s done in the name of love, and that can never be wrong!

The Original and Best Fall Festival Spaghetti Squash Soup

Since we had an overabundance of spaghetti squash in our garden this year, I’ve been trying to come up with new recipe ideas that will utilize this delicious and flavorful winter squash. Since spaghetti squash is widely available in most markets this time of year, so if you don’t grow your own, I urge you to pick a few up at the market and make this soup.

Homestyle Pork Pot Pie

Since this Pork Pot Pie takes advantage of leftover pork (from the pork roast I made that could easily feed eight to ten people), it also did double duty in this pie that can also feed eight people. Maybe someday I’ll get the hang of cooking for only two…but don’t count on it. LOL
