Originally posted October 14, 2007 – I have been making so many recipes from the archives lately that I have a whole folder of them that I haven’t even had time to update. After looking through that folder, I decided that I just had to repost this one today. If you are still having warm temps like we are, and are still able to get garden fresh tomatoes, they are perfect in this recipe. I especially love that this can be served for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

Times sure are different today than they were when I was a kid.

My daughter loves watching Youtube videos. I was in high school before people really had the internet at home. And there definitely wasn’t Youtube!

But she loves to watch. She has a couple of channels that are her favorite, mostly these girls who basically just film what they are doing. Like going to the dentist, or teaching their dog a trick. (Who would have ever guessed that someone just filming their day would end up getting millions of views on Youtube?)

Candied Chicken Recipe


I feel like I go through phases with my cooking. One week, I am drawn to anything new. Unique flavor combinations, or flavors or techniques that I haven’t tried before. I want to get creative and come up with something a little out of the ordinary.

Other times, all I want is familiar. Foods I grew up on, or flavors that remind me of my childhood.

Right now, I am in that familiar phase. I have been scouring family cookbooks, and wanting to make everything that reminds me of my family. So don’t be surprised if you start seeing a bunch of childhood favorites cropping up here on Taste and Tell!!

Silk Vanilla Almondmilk

So – my kids love chocolate milk. They are kids, after all, and I think that’s a pretty common occurrence among children. But my problem is that I can’t get them to drink anything but chocolate milk. They are water drinkers, but regular milk? Not so much. Every once in awhile I give them a glass to see if they will drink it, but it’s always a no go.

So when the folks at Silk asked if I’d like to take the challenge to see if I could convert my kids to Silk Vanilla Almondmilk, I definitely wanted to take the challenge! My kids really are good about at least trying something new, and they will always give me their honest feedback. (Gotta love kids!)

Dark Chocolate Cake with Nutella Buttercream


I’m not very good at the whole holiday thing.

I think I didn’t realize my shortcomings until Pinterest came around. Don’t get me wrong. I love Pinterest. I think it has definitely helped me in many ways, and I’m constantly inspired when I spend time browsing everyone’s pins. But it also makes me realize just how bad I am at holidays.

Hearty and filling, this Sausage and Tortellini Soup is the perfect way to warm up on cool nights.

Sausage and Tortellini Soup


We have been having the most beautiful fall I think I have ever seen here in Utah. Usually it seems like we go from 98ºF and sunny to 43ºF and snowing. Ok, maybe I’m exaggerating a little bit – it does seem like we usually get about 2 weeks of fall before the snow moves in to stay for months and months.

But this year, it has been different. Beautiful days in the 70s. Cool nights, but not so cold that you have to turn on the heater. They are the kind of days where you can get away with wearing either boots or flip flops. I seriously want it to stay like this forever.

Alas, I know that the brutal winter is just ahead of us. I don’t hide the fact that I’m more of a warm weather girl than a cold weather girl. But one thing that makes me not hate the cold quite as much is knowing that we are heading into soup season.
