What's On the Menu Monday

Happy Monday!  I thought I would share a yummy casserole that I made last week from the Cooking Light website.  I made the Chicken Poblano Casserole and it was so good!  It took a little while to prepare (about and hour and a half), but next time I might prepare this the day before I want to bake it.  Try this recipe and you won't be disappointed!  Click here for the recipe.

I also made Grilled Artichokes a few weeks ago.  If you love the grilled artichoke from Houston's like I do, then you will love this recipe.  (Recipe Here) 
What's on your menu this week?  Enjoy these recipes and Bon Appetite!

What's Cookin'

Happy Tuesday!  It is a cool 60 degrees in Dallas today and that makes me want some warm, comfort food.  This week I have made two tasty dishes that fit this bill.  Sunday, I made a new Macaroni and Cheese recipe that I saw on the new ABC show called The Chew.  If I were to make this again, I would probably add some more cheese, but overall this was a very tasty dish.
Yesterday, I made White Chicken Chili .  I have made this soup many times and it is always good.  I usually double the recipe, so we have plenty of leftovers!  Thank you Amy Hannon for posting this has quickly become a fam favorite!
Enjoy these recipes and this cooler weather!
Bon Appetite!

Catch Up!

Happy Tuesday!  Life has been a little busy lately.....2 weekends ago my parents came to visit. We ate lots of good food, went to a cooking class at Sur la Table, watched Arkansas beat Texas A&M, and had lots of fun just hanging out in Dallas.  Last weekend was the big Texas vs. OU football game......there was a ton of orange and red around town.  

Today, I want to let you know about one of the best and probably the most unique restaurants here in Dallas.  David and I took my parents there 2 weekends ago.  We love this place!  Rise No*1  is a souffle restaurant located in Inwood Village off Lovers Lane and Inwood. Everything is fabulous and always enough to share.  Between David and I, we have probably tried almost everything on the menu.  This last visit we ordered the Rise No*1 salad, Southwest Chicken Souffle, Crab Souffle, Brie and Artichoke Souffle, and Pumpkin Souffle for dessert.  Everything was so filling and flavorful.  So if you are looking for a new place to try in Dallas, I suggest Rise No*1.  You will not be disappointed and you might even see Former President and First Lady George and Laura Bush (this is known as their favorite place to eat in Dallas).  Bon Appetite!
