Since relocating to Florida, we have Thanksgiving dinner with our friends next door. (They come to our house on Christmas.) Their granddaughter came with them to our house last Christmas, where she had this special dessert that Bo makes. Last week, she asked her grandmother if she thought Bo would make it for Thanksgiving for her, because she can’t be here this Christmas. Of course, Bo said yes. Annie, it’s chilling in our fridge now. Here’s the link to the recipe: https://cookingwithboandmia.com/recipes/chocolate-truffle-pie/
One of our girls, Tracy, visited us for about three weeks, and on two nights, she cooked for us. She is a fantastic cook, by the way. She is also a nurse, but maybe should have been a chef. Here are the wonderful meals she prepared:
Shrimp with Grape Tomatoes and Asparagus Over Angel Hair Pasta
Chicken with Snow Peas, Red Peppers, and Penne Pasta in Peanut Sauce
Both dishes were superb, and so much easier to prepare that you may suspect. Talk about delicious. I’ll see if I can get her to do a guest post on Cooking With Bo and Mia so you can have the recipes.
She also makes jewelry using semi-precious gemstones and Swarovski crystals. You can see her collections on her Etsy page at Designs By LolaBelle. In case you’re wondering, LolaBelle is her dog. I often call her Miss Belle. Tracy and LolaBelle have gone back home now. We sure do miss them.
Just like apples, pecans, and other nuts, citrus fruits come into season in the fall and winter. So even though this recipe may appeal to many as a summer pie, because it is cool and refreshing, this is the best time to get fresh Key limes. For the recipe click here. Thanks for visiting.
Although today was milder, it has been colder than normal around here for the last few days. After above average temps, the cold mornings were quite a shock. On a chilly day, soup comes to the rescue. This is a thick, satisfying, hearty meal — true comfort food. For the recipe, click right here.
